A simple recipe for a paleo, nut-free and grain-free bread that's wonderful for toasting, making sandwiches and more.

  • 1/2 cup warm water (around 100 - 110 degrees F)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/3 cups cassava flour
  • 1 1/3 cups arrowroot flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  1. Combine the warm water and maple syrup together in a bowl and then sprinkle yeast on top. Set aside to get frothy - this should take 10-15 minutes. When it has doubled it is ready. If it does not froth, the water temp was off or the yeast is old and I advise starting over. 

  2. Sift or stir together cassava flour, arrowroot flour and baking powder. Using a box grater, grate butter into the flour mixture and incorporate. Use a fork and mashed it around until crumbs form.

  3. Add beaten eggs and yeast mixture to flour mixture. Mix just until it all comes together well. You can use a stand mixture, or mix by hand; this will require some elbow grease, but this is how I make it. Add in coconut flour and mix to combine.

  4. Let rest about 5 minutes. While this rests, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

  5. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and transfer batter into lined pan. Set in a warm place and let bread rise 30-45 minutes. 

  6. Bake 30-35 minutes, remove from oven when done, and immediately take out of pan and allow to cool on a rack.
