Light Fluffy Almond Bread

I wanted to put an emphasis on light and fluffy! I have a few other breads posted but this one is the most like normal sandwich bread because I use yeast. You actually get the little air pockets in this bread that you do with regular bread. Now some of you might not be able to have yeast due to any gut problems in which case, check out my other bread recipes (under breads). I was glad this worked because I have never used yeast with Almond butter, so there may be more to come. I also am daring to say it might work well for french toast...I'll try it out and let you know!

Allergy Resume: Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free and Primal

1 1/2 cups Almond butter
4 teaspoons of Rapid rising yeast (in the little bags)
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1 tablespoon Stevia powder
3 eggs

*This is the regular sandwich bread recipe, you can add different seasonings if you prefer a sweet or a savory bread.

Preheat oven to 375. Place almond butter and stevia in large bowl and mix well. Add yeast to bowl, cover and place in a warm spot (i put it in the oven on warm for a bit). Wait about 30 minutes for the yeast to sit. After 30 minutes add baking soda, powder and eggs mix well. The batter will be thicker than the other breads we have made, so don't be alarmed-- you're doing it right :-) Line a loaf pan with cooking grease and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 15-20 minutes and enjoy.

I am sorry - not to complain, but this was a total, unmitigated disaster for me! I followed the directions explicitly and made sure my yeast was rapid rise and within the parameters of expiration date....I have a nasty-looking wet pile of almond butter that is now burned because I kept thinking if I cook it just a few more minutes, maybe it'll do something.

I do know my way around the kitchen, so I can't help but wonder...did you maybe leave an important ingredient out? Thanks for any direction you can give me. I really wanted this to work :-)

Oh my gosh! I am so sorry, I looked back through the post and you are absolutely correct-- I forgot the eggs. I feel awful! I edited the recipe to include the eggs. Thanks for pointing this out, or I'm sure others would have been frustrated as well. Please send me your email address, and I will bake you a loaf myself and send it to you!

Well, after it was all said and done, I did wonder if maybe there should be some eggs in there. I guess I shouldn't have started so early in the morning :-)

I will try it again, though it will be a few days, and I will post and let you know how it goes.

Thanks for replying :-)

No, TOTALLY my mistake. I'm absolutely mortified. Add the eggs and let me know if you have ANY problems. I'd still be happy to send you a loaf, so let me know if you'd like to take me up on the offer.

Would this work with almond meal/flour?

Yes it will work with Almond Flour-- BUT, you would need to modify. You might need more almond flour, than almond butter, and you also might need more liquid. Good Luck!
