Bread. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve had a life-long affair with bread.

When I removed gluten and then grains from my diet, I missed bread like I would miss a limb.
Yes, I know there are other things that can be used (can anyone say sweet potato toast?) but they’re not…bread.

I’m sure I’m not lying when I say that I have made a bazillion grain-free bread recipes over the past five years or so and probably 90% of them were complete failures…and about 5% might give me nightmares forever.

I cross my heart and solemnly pinky-swear that you will not cry when this bread comes out of the oven. Well, maybe tears of joy but I understand that.


This recipe is easy and doesn’t use a heap of strange ingredients.
You’ll be eating your avo on toast again in no time.

Do I need to tell you this bit? Yes, I do.
Come on guys, show me some love when you make one of my recipes.
I’ll love you back, I promise.

The recipe


390 grams of eggs (6 x-large eggs)
70 grams of unsalted butter
60 grams of coconut oil
200 grams of almond flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon of salt


Step 1
Pre-heat oven to 180⁰ C
Step 2
Grease and line a standard loaf tin.
Step 3
Place the eggs in the bowl of your mixer and insert whisk attachment, or use handbeaters.
Step 4
Whisk on high for 5 minutes until thick and creamy. (I use my timer for this bit, otherwise I’m always tempted to stop too soon and you need the air in the eggs)
Step 5
While the eggs whisk, place the butter and coconut oil in a microwave safe jug and melt.
Step 6
Sit aside to cool.
Step 7
Reduce mixer speed to low and pour melted butter and coconut oil into the eggs.
Step 8
Beat on medium until well combined.
Step 9
Place all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and whisk to remove any lumps.
Step 10
Add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl and beat on medium until a smooth batter has formed.
Step 11
This batter will appear quite runny, don’t panic, it’s meant to look like that.
Step 12
Pour batter into loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 13
Let cool in tin for five minutes before removing and cooling on a baking rack.
