What do sandwiches stacked sky-high with succulent meats, ooey-gooey bread pudding, and fresh avocado smeared on a perfectly toasted slice of bread all have in common?
If you guessed that they are all made using bread, you are correct.
Arguably the most versatile food on the planet, there’s nothing we love more than a loaf of fluffy bread. That being said, if you’re eating like a caveman, we have bad news for you — bread is not on the menu.
What Is the Paleo Diet?
A way of getting back to our ancestral roots, the paleo diet is one that’s taken the world by storm due to its many purported benefits. It’s an eating style that doesn’t focus on counting calories or carbs but a diet that focuses on eating whole, unprocessed foods like free-range poultry, grass-fed meat, wild fish, veggies, fruit, nuts, and seeds.
You see, the idea behind the paleo diet is that today’s highly processed foods aren’t an ideal match for humans and can lead to things like obesity, heart problems, fatigue, and more. In fact, as the theory goes, tens of thousands of years ago, our ancient ancestors thrived as hunter-gatherers. Although it’s been quite some time since then, our genetics really haven’t changed too much. And yet, in today’s fast-paced society, we’re overweight, unhappy, stressed out, sleep-deprived, and falling ill from far too many preventable diseases.
So, what happened?
Well, to put it simply, agriculture happened. We discovered farming, and the agricultural revolution took off, and we advanced from healthy hunter-gatherers snacking on wholesome whole foods to overweight farmers consuming an abundance of grains and sugar.
While the progression of the human race is not a bad thing by any means, it’s certainly interesting to think about how over the years, as more people reach for processed foods, the number of Americans battling obesity simultaneously increases. A coincidence? We think not — especially seeing as there are multiple studies linking processed food consumption to the rising obesity epidemic.
As more research comes to light showing the horrible effects of a diet rich in ultra-processed foods, people all over the globe are beginning to hop on the paleo bandwagon. However, of all the processed foods that are kicked to the curb when eating like a caveman, bread is typically the most challenging to avoid. Thankfully, we know how to make mouthwatering bread that is not only tasty but paleo-approved!

How to Make the Best Paleo Bread Recipe From Scratch
If you ask us, paleo bread is the glue of the paleo diet. Why? Because it’s what makes eating grain-free a whole lot easier! Today, bread is a staple in the modern-era diet, so it’s really nice to have paleo bread to replace the highly-processed bread in many favorite dishes making it much less of a challenge to stick to the caveman way of eating.
Believe it or not, you don’t need any yeast. You’ll often find coconut flour in paleo sandwich bread recipes, but we’ve chosen almond flour instead for the added boost of protein that’s still low carb. The tapioca flour is there to help with the texture (tapioca starch also works), and the sea salt is really what knocks the flavor out of the park for this paleo, gluten-free, and keto bread recipe.
Our paleo bread recipe will help you to make a delicious loaf that’s perfect for sandwiches, toast, bread crumbs, and more. Plus, it’s super easy to make and won’t take up a whole lot of time. What’s not to love?
To make the greatest paleo bread of all time, you’re going to need a few things:
- 1 ½ cup almond flour
- 1 ½ cup tapioca flour or arrowroot flour
- 6 eggs
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¾ cup organic apple sauce
- 1 pinch of fine-grain sea salt
The Recipe Instructions
Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, follow these simple steps below to make paleo bread:
Step 1: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan before lining it with parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper.
Step 2: In a large-sized mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients: the almond flour, tapioca, baking powder, and sea salt. Add in the eggs and apple sauce and gently whisk to combine.
Step 3: Place your mixture into the prepared baking pan.
Step 4: Bake the bread for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Step 5: Once the bread is done baking, let it cool for a few minutes before removing it from the bread pan and transferring it onto a cooling rack.
Step 6: When the loaf of bread is perfectly cool — slice, serve, and enjoy!
Although we’re confident that you’ll gobble up this tasty paleo and gluten-free bread within a matter of minutes, if you have any leftover, keep it in the refrigerator and use it within three to four days.
