I used to love eating sandwiches as a kid. It didn’t matter if it was something simple like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a breakfast BLT sandwich, I was all about them. As I got older, I found that I couldn’t tolerate wheat and products that contain gluten as well as I used to, so for a while I just didn’t eat bread at all. Thankfully, I eventually started trying out a few different types of healthy diets (variations of paleo, keto, low carb, etc.) and it wasn’t long until I found some terrific bread recipes that used some clever ingredient substitutes. This recipe for making chewy paleo sandwich bread is definitely one of my favorites and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. There’s no wheat or gluten to be found with this chewy bread — nothing but wholesome 100% paleo-friendly goodness that both kids and moms alike will love.
Sandwiches Are THE BEST With This Chewy Paleo Bread
The best thing about this bread recipe is that it uses two of my favorite low carb baking flours — almond flour and coconut flour. The reason I like using these over refined wheat flour is because they’re both great sources of healthy fats, fiber, protein, and other essential nutrients.
On top of that, research has now revealed that a protein found in wheat is linked to the inflammation of many types of chronic health conditions. (1) Considering that inflammation is one of the underlying causes of most diseases to begin with, that’s just yet another reason to avoid refined wheat and other products that contain gluten.
After combining your almond flour and coconut flour together with a bit of baking powder and salt, you can add in either your choice of melted ghee or melted coconut oil. Both options work equally well in this recipe, but I’m partial to using the coconut oil myself. While ghee and coconut oil are both great sources of saturated fat, the fatty acids found in coconut oil are medium chain triglycerides, which provide some great benefits that go along perfectly with a low carb diet. Studies have even found that medium chain triglyceride fatty acids provide some great health benefits as you age, such as reducing your risk of developing arteriosclerosis. (2) Whatever you decide to use, mix it in with your flour mixture and then set the bowl aside.
Next up, you’re going to want to take your 12 large egg whites and add them into the bowl of a stand mixer along with a pinch of salt and ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar. Whisk these three ingredients together until the egg whites form stiff peaks, and then gently fold this mixture in with your almond flour mixture. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and then bake for 30 minutes. Take the cake out, and then tent the top with aluminum foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Once the bread has completely cooled off, you’ll be all set to start making delicious paleo-friendly sandwiches. Go ahead and get creative!
