Paleo SCD bread

I've been experimenting with making bread that is SCD friendly.
This one uses almond and coconut flour.

Paleo SCD Bread
Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 25-30 mins
Yields: 10 pieces

1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
3 tablespoons coconut flour
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
4 eggs
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Mix dry ingredients together.
  • In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk together until blended well.
  • Pour into a loaf pan lined with baking paper.  
  • Cook at 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees F) for 25-30 mins.
  • Slice when cool.
  • I'm storing mine in the freezer so I don't eat it all at once!

Note: using an aluminium pan can turn your bread green.  
For best results, use a glass pan. :)

  1. Can you use vegetable oil instead of coconut oil? And white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar?

  2. Hi kelley, I haven't tried those substitutions but I think it should work. Let us know how it turns out. :)

  3. I made this and the only thing I substituted was the vinegar. I found a recipe except I used white vinegar. And I added honey to sweeten in a little bit. When I took it out and let it cool and started cutting it smelled like a strong ammonia smell. did you have this smell?

    1. Oh dear! I just googled the difference in the vinegars and one post said there a big difference in flavour when used in baking. Sorry it didn't work out.

  4. After some research I found that vinegar can react with a nonstick pan and can cause the chemical smell and taste and discoloration. I got a glass pan and did not have this problem.

    1. I'm so glad you found that out! It's been worrying me since you posted that. Thanks so much! I'll put a note in the recipe. :)

  5. I baked this bread today. Followed the directions exactly, it actually tastes really close to regular bread (with a slight coconut scent) Overall, a "bread win" for me. Did your bread rise at all? Mine didn't. Thanks for posting!
