All my paleo, grain free, gluten free friends, get excited. We can have bread again! This Paleo bread is easy to make and perfect for building sandwiches and morning toasts. No more missing out on your favorites just because you’ve gone grain-free.
See how to make my version of Paleo bread a.k.a Blender Bread here:
What is Paleo Bread?
Paleo bread contains no grains or gluten and is traditionally made with nut flour or whole nuts, coconut flour, and eggs.
Ideally, a paleo bread recipe should slice beautifully and be enjoyed like regular sandwich bread. If you’ve been avoiding grains and bread due to gluten or grain intolerance, eating low carb, paleo, gluten-free, whole-30, or cleaning out your diet, this Paleo bread is exactly what you’ve been searching for. I know it was for me when I went grain free.
While preparing meals around the gluten intolerances in my family, I used to pay $6 to $8 for a small loaf of grain-free bread so we could enjoy our favorite foods. After developing this recipe for my cookbook The Best Grain-Free Family Meals On the Planet and it being a reader favorite on MOMables, I knew I had to share with you the step by steps and a video!
Is Paleo Bread Gluten-Free?
Absolutely! Since a paleo lifestyle avoids all grains (most of which contain gluten) you’ll find many paleo baked goods made with naturally gluten-free flours such as almond flour, coconut flour, or cassava. I use each of these to make delicious recipes we can’t go without like bread, muffins, and scones.
So whether you are paleo, gluten free or looking for a clean way to enjoy sandwiches, this bread is for you!
If you’re reading this and find that all of these apply to you or you just want to eat cleaner, check out these clean eating tips and recipes to help get the whole family on board!
Best Flour for Paleo Bread and Paleo Baking
While some paleo bread recipes use almond flour I get best results from a combo of whole roasted cashews and coconut flour. A high powered blender helps to break down the nuts and create a perfectly smooth batter.
How to make Paleo Bread with Coconut Flour
Coconut flour does NOT work the same as regular flours. It is VERY absorbent and you’ll notice any recipe that calls for coconut flour uses very little flour with a lot of eggs. This helps to counteract the drying effect coconut flour can have on baked goods while adding volume to the recipe.
When using coconut flour recipes, make sure to follow the recipe exactly as written. Any substitutions will most likely result in a failed attempt.

How to Make Nut Free Paleo Bread
If you need a grain free and nut free bread, replace the cashews with pumpkin or sunflower seeds. The loaf color will be different but the taste won’t be compromised.
Is Paleo Bread Keto?
While this paleo bread has a healthy source of fats, a single slice of this Paleo Blender Bread has 11.5 grams of net carbs.
Instead, use this cloud bread to build your favorite sandwiches or use as morning toast!
What is the Best Paleo Bread
This paleo bread has a sturdy texture that holds up well for sandwiches or grilling. It also slices perfectly and has a nutty taste and aroma. My family loves it for everything from PB & J’s to grilled cheese sandwiches.
How to Make Fluffy Paleo Bread for Sandwiches
As stated above this recipe uses quite a few eggs to assist with the coconut flour but this also yields a nice, tall loaf of grain-free bread.
Another important recipe note is the type of loaf pan. You’ll want to use a 7 x 3-inch loaf pan, anything larger and your loaf will be a little flat, which is still usable but not ideal for sandwiches. This type of loaf pan is also a must for many grain-free bread recipes, otherwise, the cooking time will need to be adjusted.
The Secret to Softer Paleo Bread
Make sure you blend the batter until completely smooth. It should pour from the blender into the loaf pan, any lumps will weigh it down and make the bread course.
It’s about time we had a no-nonsense grain free bread recipe and this Blender Bread is where it’s at!
