This homemade gluten free bread is made with almond flour. It’s soft, fragrant, and makes a great canvas for sweet or savory toppings.
When making homemade gluten free bread, it is important however to adjust our expectations. The yeasty aroma and gluten-induced fluffiness that we love about traditional bread cannot be achieved without, well, yeast and gluten, so this is more of a quick bread that fills the need (if you still have it) to make a sandwich or to have a slice of bread for breakfast.
For this purpose, this gluten-free bread works very well, and since it’s low in carbs and relatively high in fat, it will fill you up better and will spare you the blood sugar roller coaster normally associated with flour bread.

Tasty, fluffy ricotta pancakes, made with coconut flour and pleasantly flavored with vanilla and lemon zest. I don’t sweeten the batter at all, so I serve these lemon ricotta pancakes with a tablespoon of honey per serving. Click for the recipe

These tasty almond flour pancakes are fluffy and tender. I don’t add any sweetener to the batter, because I serve them with maple syrup, which makes them plenty sweet enough. The blueberries are optional, and wonderful. Click for the recipe
I’ve been on a chocolate kick lately, and these Paleo chocolate muffins are the perfect answer to “what can I have that’s rich, chocolaty, gooey and awesome, but doesn’t contain wheat and won’t send my blood sugar sky-high?”
These Paleo chocolate muffins are good enough to serve as dessert, but they are also wholesome enough that I allow myself and the kids a couple of them for breakfast on weekends. An added bonus: unlike refined-flour-and-sugar-muffins, these muffins are very filling, probably thanks to using almond butter in lieu of flour. Click for the recipe
I’m calling this “goat cheese frittata” because it contains goat cheese, but I might as well call it “everything frittata,” since it was born out of my need to use up stuff in my fridge before it goes bad. So I threw in there said goat cheese, spinach, scallions, and a few sun-dried tomatoes. Added seasonings and baked. The result is a delicious, pretty, very filling frittata that I love having for breakfast, for lunch or as a quick snack. Click for the recipe
