Almond Butter Sandwich Bread

Seven years ago when I first started to eat gluten-free, I was amazed to discover that there was only one gluten-free bread option on the market, and no gluten-free bread recipes out there. And, really…calling store-bought gluten-free bread actually ‘bread’ was a stretch, since it had the consistency and weight of a heavy brick, and it tasted like a mouth full of saw dust. Needless to say…years ago, store bought gluten-free bread was down right disgusting.

Because of the ick factor, I went without eating bread for about 2 years: that’s until local bakers here in Toronto started to experiment and offer gluten-free breads that tasted amazing.

I remember the day, vividly, when I heard about a local bakery here in Toronto that was selling an outrageously scrumptious gluten-free bread. I hightailed it to the shop, and bought a loaf. When I arrived home, I immediately made a grilled cheese sandwich…I hadn’t had one in 2 years. I was in heaven…the bread was light, crispy when toasted, and the taste was just like I was eating a regular, wheat-based, loaf. I was ecstatic.

What I wasn’t ecstatic about, however, was the price: the loaf cost $8.50. Hello! That’s crazy expensive! I don’t know about you, but I’m not about to pay that kind of moolah for a loaf of bread on a regular basis.

And, so we arrive at today’s recipe for almond butter bread. I’m the kind of girl that likes to find a way to make lovely tasting gluten-free & sugar-free food, out of my own kitchen, for far less than retail shop prices. And, I also like the idea of always knowing what’s in my food. I like to avoid all chemicals, GMOs and general fakery, since I’m trying to get my body to heal from a chronic illness.

Serves: 15 slices

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of organic 100% almond butter
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 2 tbsp of RAW apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
  • 1/3 cup of chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup of sesame seeds (for topping)

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
  2. Into a large stand mixer, place 1 cup of 100% almond butter. Turn the mixer on for 3 minutes to soften the almond butter.
  3. Add the eggs. Turn the mixer on again, and mix the eggs and almond butter together, thoroughly. You want the mixture to be smooth. Scrape the bowl a few times.
  4. Add the apple cider vinegar, baking soda, sea salt and chia seeds. Mix until all incorporated.
  5. Grease and line with parchment paper an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan. I usually use olive oil or coconut oil to grease the tin first. Greasing the tin helps you to line the tin with parchment paper — the paper sticks to the oil, thus holding it in place.
  6. Pour the bread batter (it will be like thick cake batter) into the lined loaf pan.
  7. Liberally sprinkle sesame seeds on top of the batter. Lightly press the seeds into the top of the batter using your fingers.
  8. Bake the bread for 35-40 minutes. The top will be golden brown. Poke the bread with a toothpick — it’s done when the toothpick comes out clean.
