I wanted a bread with some extra protein for breakfast, so I came up with this. This is an excellent very faintly sweet breakfast bread with an unusual but satisfyingly 'bread' texture. The crust has a great flaky/chewy consistency while remaining soft. It is dense but not heavy and the extra protein from the almond flour keeps the mid-morning munchies away. It is very good with a slice of cheese and some fruit on the side. This is not (nor was it intended to be) a gluten-free recipe; the addition of vital gluten is critical to maintain cell structure for the rise. The xanthan gum is only in there because I like the ability to slice my homemade bread and use it for sandwiches.

This loaf was excellent! I was skeptical because of the almond flour (which I love) but the rise crumb and texture were very good. Wonderful aroma while it was cooking! (I should add that I used coconut oil rather than almond oil.) My husband even commented on the aroma. Great loaf of bread with all the extra goodness and health benefits of almond flour and whole wheat. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Excellent bread! I made it exactly as written in my bread machine. Ingredients are expensive but worth it if you plan to make it several times which I have. My husband loved it also and I plan to make one for my neighbor who tried it. Read More

Made as is and we love it. Had too much almond flour and looked for recipes --this is great. No one even seemed to notice. Added sesame seeds the second time I made it--gave it an extra crunch Read More
