Almond Loaf

This gluten-free loaf is pretty amazing. It’s flavourful and moist and I love the texture. I would describe it as a cross between a soufflé and cornbread. There’s no corn it at all, just almonds, eggs and butter.

I’ve been on a low-carb, low-sugar diet for the last few weeks. I haven’t been eating any grains, bread or pasta. The last year of food blogging hasn’t been kind to my waistline so it was time to reign it in.

I’ve been eating lots of vegetables, lean protein and berries. Things have been going well. I have lost 10 pounds in three weeks. I haven’t been feeling hungry, but I do miss the texture of bread. So I started researching different low-carb diet (Keto, Whole 30, Paleo) recipes and I came across some recipes for Keto bread.

This is my variation of Keto bread. It’s super easy to make and it’s really tasty.

Enjoy!
