Cassava Flour Bread

In a world where I’ve given up bread, it’s nice to see that there are alternatives out there.  This bread is a great substitute for SAD (Standard American Diet) bread and won’t leave you feeling meh.  It toasts up well and superbly stands up to sandwich making.

Cassava flour is not easily found.  I order it by the pound sacks from Amazon and I use it for specialties like bread and tortillas.  If you keep a supply on hand it makes it easier to make an impromptu loaf!

Cassava flour inherently contains starchy carbs.  When I do the math the carb count per slice is pretty small.  If you are sticking to a low carb or ketogenic diet, this bread may not be a good idea, so just be mindful about that.

The following recipe took a little doing to find.  There was one gal out there food blogger land who is charging $2 for a copy of her recipe, I considered it, but changed my mind.  I appreciate what she is trying to do, however the internet is loaded with information that is free.

CASSAVA FLOUR BREAD

From Otto’s Naturals

Adapted from Predominately Paleo

1 cup of almond meal

1 cup of cassava flour (Otto’s Naturals or Moon Rabbit Fours)

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup olive oil/avocado oil

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

3 generous Tbsp. honey

6 eggs (yes 6!)

1/2 tsp salt

Method

Put the dry ingredients in a food processor and mix.  Add wet ingredients and blend until creamy.  This is a very wet dough so don’t be alarmed.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 until golden brown (tap your batter lightly on the counter top to bring the air bubbles to the top, this is give you a dense crumb).   Baking should take about 35 minutes.  Keep an eye on it because mine was wet in the center and went for an additional 5 minutes.  Make sure to do the toothpick test!

Enjoy!

Cheers,

Rhonda
