Parmesan Garlic Bread
1 cup almond flour, whole
3/4 cup rice bran
1/2 cup flaxmeal, Bob's Red Mill
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, or goat cheddar
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 serving plain whey protein, or 3 tblsp. rice protein
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. tarragon
2 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tblsp. soy sauce
1/3 cup water
5 eggs, large
3 oz. cream cheese, room temperature, or 3 tblsp. almond butter
1 tblsp. coconut oil, melted
1 tblsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. In a
smaller bowl, beat the cream cheese or almond butter with the melted
coconut oil and butter until smooth. Add eggs one at a time mixing
until smooth. An electric beater makes this much easier. Add the water
and mix. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry while stirring until
thoroughly mixed together.
Coat a medium sized loaf pan with coconut oil and then add some
flaxmeal to the pan and shake until evenly coated on the bottom and
sides of the pan. It will stick if you don’t do this. Carefully add
the batter to the pan to avoid disturbing the coating. Smooth the top
and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. It should be quite brown and firm to the
touch when done.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes (do not turn off the oven
yet). Run a butter knife around the edges to loosen the loaf from the
pan. Turn over on a cutting board and take the loaf out of
the pan. Take a bread knife and cut the entire loaf in half lengthwise.
Look to see how firm the middle of the loaf is. If it is still at all
liquid, put the halves together, put it back in the pan and bake for 15
Once the loaf is moist but not runny, remove from pan on cutting
board. Make sure it is sliced lengthwise in half, then hold the halves
together and cut the loaf into eight thick slices. Open up the slices
and let them steam and cool for an hour or so. They will dry out and
firm up. Put slices back into pan for storage in the refrigerator.
To eat a slice, cut it in half to make two thin slices, toast and
butter or use cream cheese, nut butter, or melt
cheese on it. Great with a bowl of chili or turkey vegetable soup, or
with lunch meat, tuna or egg salad.
