Gluten Free Low Carb Bread...Primaly Delicious!

I have been craving a sandwich.
Since we shun the overly processed-wheat-belly hurting-grain type stuff, I didn't know what to do.
I could have made one of the coconut flour biscuits and flattened it out, but they still are a bit crumbly at times.
I knew there had to be a way.
I turned to Pinterest, my favorite all time web site these days.
I finally found a few recipes that suited what I was looking for.
I fiddled around with them and added the spices I was looking for...and voila!
I had a low carb-gluten free-primal-paleo bread to make a sandwich with.
It was perfect and quite yummy.
The texture was firm enough to hold and not break apart like coconut flour breads tend to do (no GLUE-ten in them to hold it all together).

Isn't that a lovely sandwich?
Fresh turkey with Kerrygold grass fed sharp cheddar cheese...mmmm.
I would have dolled it up with lettuce, tomatoes, and other good things but I had no idea if it would taste very good at all?!
I wanted to still be able to get a good taste of this type of Primal bread.

The ingredients were mixed up, poured into a glass storage dish, and microwaved.

I tipped it out of the dish and cut it across the middle with a long serrated knife.

Here it is getting roasty-toasty on the griddle.

A glass mixing bowl got the heat and steam going to melt that thick tangy cheese to molten goodness.

Here is the recipe;

  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 2 eggs mixed
  • dash of aluminum free baking powder
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • I added a few extra spices I enjoy
Mix everything up in a bowl
Let it set for a few minutes and mix again (this gives the coconut flour time to absorb the liquids and mix up smoothly)
Scrape into a glass bowl (mine was square making it perfect for sandwich bread making)
Microwave on high for three minutes
Let rest for a minute or two and then loosen from the bowl onto a cutting board
I used a long serrated knife to separate into a top and bottom.
Grill it up with your favorite sandwich fixings!

I made this into an egg, bacon, cheese, and avocado sandwich for my husband this morning.

Our recent graduate was very pleased with this new bread.
I hope you try the recipe and enjoy it too!
