Almond Flour Bread

I assume that most low carbers still have a hankering for bread.   I have to still walk past the bread section in Spinneys and try not to look at their olive bread for fear of sobbing loudly.   I found a great recipe that has worked out really well as a replacement and now I can walk smugly past the bread section in the supermarket.    It is great with cashew nut hummus too.  And we now have a bread to dip into soups! Woohoo!   I make the almond flour by grinding almonds in a food processor….plain almonds and those with the skin still on both work well for this bread recipe.


3 1/2 cups almond flour

3 eggs

1/4 cup melted butter

1 tspn baking soda

1 cup natural yoghurt

1/4 tspn salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  2. Grease the insides of a loaf tin with butter.
  3. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.  Or throw it into a food processor.
  4. Put the dough mix into the loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes.
  5. Cool in the pan, remove, eat and enjoy!


      • Hi Jess,
        Perhaps the oven temperature may need adjusting..turn it up a little higher. I do find that the temperatures of ovens can vary slightly at times. Or cook it for a bit longer. Cover the top with foil to stop it burning and bake for another 10-15 minutes, checking it from time to time. Good luck on the next attempt!


  1. Hi Angie, I have baked it for extra 45mins and it is a nice loaf with a crispy crust :-) My first “bread”. The taste is good and reminds me of a cake loaf, one slice and it is very filling. I wonder if this almond bread (and the others in the bread section) freezes well or kept in the fridge for a long time? Many thanks!


    • Yah! So glad it worked out good for you and that you like it! I think it will keep for about 3-5 days in the fridge but not too sure about freezing it though as I have not tried it.


      • Your recipe for the bread is freezable! Yippee! :-) I sliced them & cling-wrapped them as a loaf. They froze beautifully without changing shape & taste or sticking together. I placed the frozen slices directly on a sandwich grill to create those pretty lines (I like them better when warm) and they tasted delicious! Now I can try other bread loaves without fearing I have to finish them in a short time. Thank you so much! :-)


  2. Just baked a loaf, it is delicious. Ate it with a lovely chia raspberry jam from Madeleine Shaw’s book GET THE GLOW and they matched perfectly. Just a question! I remember making this bread a couple of months ago, didn’t the recipe contain flaxseed meal as well or am I confused with some other similar recipe?
