Oh Bread, How I’ve Missed You…

I’d just like to get this out in the open right now: I love bread.  Bread is probably the one thing that can tempt me away from eating primally.  It’s the one thing I really regret that I can’t eat.  I used to love nothing more than a nice egg and bacon roll.

I’ve tried a few primal bread replacements before, ranging from okay to oh-my-god-I’m-never-making-that-again (I’m looking at you, carrot and walnut bread…).  But one thing they all had in common was that they made small, dense loaves, and couldn’t really be used to make a sandwich, or a nice egg and bacon roll.  All that changed this week, though, when I found a very easy to make almond meal bread recipe.

Not only is this bread recipe tasty, it is suitably light and fluffy, and is incredibly quick and easy to make.  This one comes courtesy of the Mark’s Daily Apple forums, and was posted by Rivvin.  I am incredibly grateful to have discovered it.  So, enough rambling form me, here’s how to make it:

1/4 Cup of Almond Meal
1 Egg
1 Tablespoon of Butter or Coconut Oil
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder

Now comes the fun part.  Mix all of that stuff up and pour it into a flat bottomed, microwave safe container.  Shove it in the microwave, and nuke the sucker for 1 minute and 20 seconds.  Depending on the size of your container, you’ll either get one slice of bread, or one thick slice of bread that can be cut in half to make two slices.

Damn easy to make, and takes all of 5 minutes to make a couple of rolls.  They work well with burgers as well, and judging by the response on the Daily Apple forums, the recipe can be adjusted to make a sweeter bread, suitable for desserts.
