How does almond flour affect baking?
Almond flour bread recipes can be tricky. The almond flour adds a subtle sweetness as well as extra moisture and richness. This can be great for soft things like rolls, but for things like bread where you want a good crust and more chewy texture, you need to add a few things.
- Extra eggs- holds things together better when you are dealing with almond flour and coconut flour in baking
- Coconut flour- helps to absorb excess moisture so things don’t get soggy.
- Rising agents.
Yeast or No Yeast
If you do want to use yeast in a recipe with almond flour, you will normally need to use more than the regular amount and give it extra time to rise.
This almond flour bread recipe doesn’t use yeast. Instead we went the easier route with some buttermilk (can be made dairy free) and baking soda together, as well as baking powder. Each one gives a rise and helps this bread taste chewy and fluffy instead of brick-like.
While this bread probably isn’t what you would call sandwich bread because of it’s shape- it’s amazing for a quick and easy fresh out of the oven bread. Spread some butter and taste the goodness.
Best Almond Flour bread Recipe
This almond flour bread can be made in minutes and baked in a dutch oven, skillet, or bread pan. Super versatile and delicious.
All you need are things you may already have in your pantry/fridge:
- Almond Flour
- Coconut Flour
- Milk of Choice (almond, whole milk, oat milk… etc)
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Maple Syrup
Nothing super crazy in this recipe so here are the key things to remember:
- Mix the dry ingredients and the buttermilk mixture separately first. That buttermilk mixture will activate the baking soda right when it hits it. So you want to do that quickly and get it in the oven where you want most of the rise to happen.
- Bake on parchment paper to make sure it doesn’t stick.
- Finally, make sure you let it rest for at least 10-15 minutes after baking so that it doesn’t crumble. Almond flour can make things a little more fragile straight out of the oven- letting it rest stabilizes it for the best results.
How long will Almond Flour Bread keep?
Almond flour actually extends the shelf life of most baked goods. The fat in it retains moisture and keeps the bread from going stale a bit longer.
This bread should be kept in an air tight bag on the counter for about a week (after a week just keep an eye on it).
