What?  No grain bread??

What? No grain bread??

You cannot be serious, really, a bread without grain?  I finally worked and tried various recipes and I found one that was really good, but it just needed something, so I did a variation, it was good too, but needed something.  I did another variation, and that was even better.  So, which one, hmmmmm?  Well let’s just say I now have 3 very good bread recipes made without wheat flour.

The final variation #2 is my pick for sandwich bread.  You can find the original recipe, and both variations #1 and #2 here.

The original recipe I made using whole eggs and ghee for the oil and it was tasty and buttery, makes great french bread and toast!

Variation #1 was made using coconut oil and just eggs whites, whisked until frothy,  for a lighter more airy bread.  This bread was lighter in texture, taste and color, but the loafs I thought were too small.  We were going through about one every two days.  Yes, we missed bread a lot when we cut wheat out of our diet.

Variation #2 Well, I doubled this recipe and used olive oil, whisked egg whites only and I added honey.  I also turned down the heat a bit to 325 degrees because it was twice the amount and I  without wanted to make sure it got cooked thoroughly without burning.  I had to increase the time as well, up to 50 minutes and it still wasn’t done, but had a nice golden crust on it. I decided to cover it completely to prevent it from getting too brown, and put it back into the oven for another 15 minutes, for a total cooking time of 65 minutes.  Ovens vary so make sure you insert a knife and it comes out clean to be sure.

As you can see in this picture I ended up with a nice golden crusted bread, light and airy.  It tasted really good, too.



I absolutely love this little gadget.  I can have a sweet, creamy all natural no sugar added cool fruit dessert any time I want.  Nice for these hot summer days in Texas.  It saves all my fruit I have too, no more waste.  My bananas that start to go brown I throw in the freezer and any others like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries that might be starting to get old, just freeze them.  My favorite right now is Banana, mango and pineapple!  You can get them on AMAZON, I got the elite because I knew I would use it a lot, there is a smaller unit, but I know how my family is about sweets, so this is used daily.  It’s easy to clean and the parts are dishwasher safe.  I can even add a bit of my Young Living essential oils to them when I am done to enhance the flavors.  I would only recommend Young Living oils for ingesting as I do not the quality and safety of other brands.  Many of the Young Living oils are labeled and approved for supplemental use.
