8 Of The Best Paleo Bread Recipes

One of the first things anyone says when I explain the Paleo fashion of eating is, "Oh my God how do you live without bread?" Well it was weird to blow off the cravings that made me reach for the dinner rolls or slap a sandwich once I needed a fast lunch together. But once you eat mostly Paleo for a while, those and your palate changes urges subside.

That's not to say those big pieces of banana bread at Starbucks, or the idea of slathering butter never tempted me all over a thick piece of sourdough baguette. But that is why Paleo bread recipes exist!

I know what you are thinking. "How the heck can you make bread without grain and dairy?! It's what bread has become, yes, but it is only one strategy to make it. Word of caution: your cravings will never relax for Wonder Bread, but I guarantee that they will serve as a worthy replacement, giving you all the delight of baked goods with none of the grain, dairy product or guilt.

(Another word of caution: Paleo bread is preservative-free so you will need to keep it in the fridge and eat it fairly quickly. If you need it to keep for longer, cut it into individual pieces, wrap and freeze.

1. World Famous Grain-Free Sandwich Bread -- According to cookbook of exactly the same name, writer of the Against All Grain website and Danielle Walker, this Paleo bread stays her highest trafficked recipe ever. It's crusty and light, ideal for paninis, French toast, and obviously, sandwiches.

2. Paleo Coffee Cake -- OK, it's not technically a bread, but it's a breakfast staple that many Paleo eaters believed they had never taste again. Wrong! This recipe uses coconut flour instead of wheat that is bleached and just a touch of honey for sweetness. Note: This recipe calls for whole yogurt, but in the event that you are intolerant of all dairy, an almond or coconut milk yogurt may work.

3. The best part is you do not have to stress over a ton of exotic spices -- just bust open a few chai tea totes and you're good to go. Due to banana, pumpkin, the almond butter, and eggs, this bread is very moist, so make sure you refrigerate.
