Bread Rounds

IMG_4195

These rounds were so easy to make and an amazing hit for a boy that has not had a “real”sandwich in a year!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups (240 g) blanched almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (57 g) yogurt (or coconut milk or other milk) I used coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) unsalted butter, melted (or ghee, coconut oil, or palm shortening)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of toppings such as poppy seeds, sesame seeds (optional)IMG_4201

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F/175°C. Line 2 or 3 (depending their size) baking sheets with nonstick baking mats, parchment paper, or other nonstick material.
  2. Place all the ingredients, except any toppings, in a food processor or blender; blend until creamy. Alternatively, you can blend with a mixer or whisk.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into pancake-like circles onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each roll. Feel free to make larger rolls by adding another tablespoon or so. If the batter is thick you can spread it around a bit with the back of a spoon.
  4. Sprinkle with your chosen toppings and bake for 15 minutes, or until the rolls brown slightly on top. If you’re making larger rolls, they’ll take a few more minutes to brown and firm up sufficiently. Don’t be afraid to go a little brown with these—that will make them firmer and add a tasty crunch at the edges.
  5. Slide a knife or spatula under each roll and remove to a cooling rack. Let cool completely, seal, and store in the refrigerator for a week or so or in the freezer for a few months.

Makes about 12 small or 6 large rounds

Simple Bread

IMG_3442
It’s hard to say on this one, I made it with egg replace the first time. I likes it. It was very nutty. It was also very dense. The kids enjoyed it as an after school snack. The second time I made it to go with dinner, I used egg so I could not try it. This time my husband was not a huge fan, he said it was too much like the texture of corn bread,  to “grainy”, he does not like corn bread and we all do. Charley loved it but he loves everything! The other kids were ok with it, but not in love. So I guess it’s all a matter of opinion.
I got this recipe from elanaspantry.com she has great breads and muffins, if you are gluten-free I recommend stopping by.
