All-Purpose Paleo Bread


Bread can be one of those recipes that can intimidate even the most advanced baker. Thankfully, you have nothing to fear with this recipe and you certainly don’t need to be an advanced baker to serve up this amazing bread.

But what exactly is an “all-purpose” bread you ask? Well, our all-purpose paleo bread can be utilized for almost all your paleo “bread” needs. This means that this recipe can be used to make bread for sandwiches, biscuits or just regular toast for breakfast! So, let’s jump in and get our bread baking.


8 ounces + 1-2 tablespoons coconut milk
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 1/2 cups “Paleo” flour (we buy ours at Natural Grocers but if you need to make your own, mix equal parts coconut flour, almond flour and tapioca flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons gelatin
7 tablespoons red palm shortening


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
Place 1 tablespoon of palm shortening on a paper towel and coat the inside of a bread pan. Place bread pan to the side.
In a small bowl mix together 8 ounces of coconut milk and 1/2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Place bowl to the side.
In a large bowl mix together paleo flour, baking soda, salt and gelatin.
Add 6 tablespoons of palm shortening to dry mixture. Using a fork “cut” the shortening into the dry mixture, you do this by using the fork to push the shortening into the flour. Continue to do this until you the mixture looks like wet sand.

Add coconut milk, apple cider vinegar mixture to your large bowl. Knead your mixture until you are able to form a ball of dough that doesn’t crumble apart. You may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of additional coconut milk to achieve this.

Place dough in your bread pan and cook for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool and then enjoy all your hard work!

Happy Baking!

Paleo Rosemary Bread


It’s no secret that bread is a staple part of the Western Diet. Even when we look back at biblical times, a slice of bread was equated with wealth, prosperity and even, heaven. So I’m definitely not going to suggest that you give up your little slice of heaven…instead I’m going to show you how to get the best of both worlds: indulgence and health.

For those of you who joined us at the Gluten-Free Health Fair last weekend, you enjoyed a sneak peak into how easy it is to whip up Paleo Raisin Bread in nothing more than a food processor and an oven-proof bread pan. Today, let’s whip up some Rosemary Bread (based on the same base recipe) in under 40 minutes!


2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 cups arrowroot flour
1/2 cup flax meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 large eggs
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey/agave
2 tablespoons crushed rosemary spice


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a bread pan with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
In a  food processor, add the arrowroot flour, flax meal, coconut flour, baking soda and salt and pulse for about a minute.
Add the eggs, other tablespoon of coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and honey/agave and blend for about another minute.
Fold in the rosemary.

Rosemary Bread Dough
Scoop the mixture into the greased bread pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a skewer poked through the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let the bread cool before slicing.

If you want to get fancy you can scoop the same mixture into mini-bread pans and create individual loaves for your guests, or even make rosemary muffins and serve them with a generous spread of grass-fed butter!
