Eating grain free has dramatically changed my life for the better. Although an occasional gluten free grainy treat is totally in my diet when it is #worthit, most of the time, I stay clear of rice and corn and their flours.
Sometimes I do find myself craving a favorite dish from my childhood or something with a different texture. Usually, I have been able to replace it with a paleo recipe, so when I was craving Baked Mac & Cheese, I found a way to make it practically paleo (it totally had real cheese because I’d choose cheese over soy fake cheese any day). But, to make this childhood fav, I needed breadcrumbs. The gluten free breadcrumbs at the store were loaded with rice flour and sugar (WHY SUGAR??). So, I opted to make my own. After scouring the internet for a while, I put together many ideas and came up with this quick and simple recipe. My favorite part, it is a recipe for SO many things in one AND its perfect for 1-2 people! No leftovers mean no reaching for it just because. YAY! This is for me! Try it out and let me know what you think!
Easiest Paleo Bread
- 2 tablepsoons oil I use ghee or coconut oil.
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tablespoon spices Totally optional. I like to add Italian spices sometimes!
- Oil a microwaveable coffee mug
- Mix together egg and oil in a small bowl
- Add in the flours, baking soda, salt and any desired spices
- Transfer into coffee mug and top with any additional spices. I love adding Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning to the top!
- Microwave for 90 seconds.
- Remove from coffee mug and let cool or a minute or two before slicing to enjoy, toast it up with breakfast or to make garlic bread. I also make croutons or breadcrumbs from this too!
- To make croutons, cut in to bite size pieces and toast in oven at 350ºF for about 10 minutes. Shuffle them around halfway through. Remove from baking tray and let completely cool before storing in airtight container.
- To make breadcrumbs, make croutons. When cooled, either use a spoon to crush the bread into crumbs OR use a blender. Also, if you didn't add spices, they can be added now.
