Almond Meal & Flaxseed Loaf

Another Pinterest find and grain free loaf experiment number 2. This one so far is my favorite. I baked it longer than the original recipe said to give it a nice crust and it was perfectly crunchy. I also added about 1 TBS worth of raw honey, just because I like the flavor and touch of sweetness it adds. Another change I made was excluding the whole flaxseeds, just because I don’t care for seeds in my bread.

Here is the recipe with my personal alterations.

Paleo Dinner Rolls

I was craving a warm roll with honey so I decided to try out these Paleo Dinner Rolls from Paleo Spirit. They are amazing!  Crusty on the outside, doughy in the middle.  They hit the spot perfectly.

The first time I made them I followed the original recipe and they were good, then I followed a tip from this blog and (plus made a couple changes of my own) and they were even better.

Here is the recipe I used with the tip and my own changes.  Enjoy!  I want to try making garlic and/or herb rolls with this next and try pull-a-part rolls.  Oh the possibilities.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup tapioca starch (or arrowroot powder)
1/2 coconut flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup oil (liquid)(ex. olive, avocado, safflower)
1 large egg
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar (optional: for a “sourdough” taste.)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 360ºF
  • Mix the dry ingredients with HALF the coconut flour
  • Mix the wet
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients, slowly added the rest of the coconut flour until you have a wet but non sticky dough.
  • Roll dough balls into desired shape and size (they will not rise in the oven) and place on a parchment papered baking pan.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes until the start to turn golden brown.

(Note: Try an egg wash before baking for well browned rolls, or brushing with butter or coconut oil as soon as they come out of the oven.)

I recommend storing in a sealed bag or container.  If it’s more than a couple of days I also recommend storing them in the fridge.

The outside did soften after being stored in a bag overnight, but the inside was still doughy and the rolls themselves were still very moist.
