Easy Paleo Bread for Sandwiches (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Sugar-Free)

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.

Check out these Pancake Muffins, my Grain-Free Blueberry Scones, and the Paleo Pumpkin Scones after you’re done with today’s Paleo sandwich bread! See, grain-free baking doesn’t have to be hard.

So whether you are paleo, gluten free or looking for a clean way to enjoy sandwiches, this bread is for you!

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!

    How much apple cider vinegar? I couldn’t find a measurement.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      1 tablespoon. I’ve updated teh recipe, Cindy. Thanks for catching that!

      1. Linn Monroe says:

        The recipe still says 1 tbsp but your note to Cindy says 1 TEAspoon. Please advise. I am buying what I need to make this within a few days. It looks sooo good! Thanks for such an easy recipe. Some others are so complicated.

        1. Laura Fuentes says:

          sorry. It is definitely 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. I just double-checked the cookbook.

  2. Joyce Webb says:

    This looks GREAT!! Do you think it would work with any other nuts, like pecans or almonds? (I’d love to try pecans.) I realize they all have different oil content and that could be a problem.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      YES! If you use walnuts (more affordable) they give this bread a “whole wheat” taste like. I’ve never tried it with pecans and with almonds it is a little dryer… but still wonderful. Enjoy!

  3. Kris says:

    I just made it with sunflower seed as suggested for the nuts free option but it turned green inside although the outside is still brown. I just tasted a slice and flavour is okay but it looks like mold so not very appealing.
    And I just noticed too the batter stuck on the tools and blender blades is green too.
    I guess (and hope) it is the color given by the seeds and it is still safe to eat as I already ate some and plan to eat more in the morning, lol.

    Any experience with sunflower seeds yourself?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Kris, the reason this happens is that sunflower seeds when mixed with baking soda have a chemical reaction that turn the batter and the end product green -not just in this bread recipe but all recipes that call for both. This will not alter the taste but the look of the finished baked product. I hope this helps!

      1. Kris says:

        Thanks for your reply Laura!
        Flavor was good and I just baked a version with walnuts (as despite the color I really liked the green one, lol).
        I also replaced the honey for a mix of coconut sugar with water to make similar texture and used 1tbsp as indicated in the recipe and turned out great :))).

        Thank you! I usually do not follow recipes due to my intolerances but besides the honey, I can tell you this is probably the only one I am going to keep making following your instructions!

        Thanks again!!!

        1. Laura Fuentes says:

          I’m so glad this turned out great for you! And thank you for trusting my recipes.
