Gluten-Free Nut Bread

Gluten-free Nut Bread

It’s officially fall and all I want to do is stay in the kitchen and bake.

I’d like to think I’ve been on a roll…biscuits with our soups, making muffins with leftover carrots and apples and now this nut bread that I’m hooked on.

I’ve been leaning toward a more gluten-free diet lately (thanks for the nudge, Dean :P) and decided to attempt a gluten-free bread. Lara has been sending in her bread recipes, too. With her latest being corn bread two ways – 1 quick, 1 yeasted.

So now I’m sharing mine! One slice is more than enough to have you feeling satisfied for hours because of all the healthy fats and protein from the nuts.

We’re talking walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and more – all boasting plant-based calcium, magnesium and trace minerals like manganese.

Plus, even if you’re a less-than-adequate baker, I swear you can make this! So give it a try 🙂

This loaf will last ~5 days in your bread pantry and even longer in the fridge. If you don’t want your bread to be as dense, you can also add 1 small zucchini, shredded and one more egg.

Personally, I enjoy it toasted with some butter. That’s it! But I’ve also added cheeses, olive oil, and fresh tomato and cucumber too.

Hi Monica
Recipe looks great but I am also allergic to nuts. Having arthritis…gluten free sounds good for but any recommendations to alternate nuts with…? Would appreciate it very much. FYI I am a big fan of AlgaeCal and take it regularly. It has increased my bone density in back.
Thanks

Hi Shahnaz,

The two nut varieties used in this recipe are the 1/4 cup of walnuts – I’m thinking you can replace with an additional 1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds instead. And 1 cup almond flour, which you can replace with a gluten-free flour or a whole wheat flour if you don’t react to gluten. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m sure it would yield a similar result!

So wonderful to hear you take AlgaeCal and it has increased your bone density! If you have any questions during your continued bone health journey know that we are always here 🙂
