The important ingredients in this recipe are: almond flour, eggs, baking powder, and salt. If you have just those, then you’re good to go! Of course, it can taste very different depending on exactly what you use.

If you want to experiment with it, then let me just tell you that the recipe proportions for this bread is around 1/3 cup of almond flour, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Mix well, then put in a normal-sized mug and microwave for approx. 90 seconds on high. Yeah, it’s that simple!
So what was the specific recipe I used?
I like to add either some flax meal or some chia bran to make the bread less crumbly (coconut flour works too). You don’t need too much (1 or 2 tablespoons is good). So here are the dry ingredients: almond flour, chia bran, baking powder and pinch of salt.
Then add around 2 and 1/2 tablespoons of oil to the mixture too. Coconut oil or olive oil works fine, but I find butter is the best (of course if you’re not eating any dairy products, then stick with coconut oil or olive oil). Here’s everything added:
Grease a mug or bowl (or microwavable container). I like using a mug because then you get a nice small cylinder of bread that you can cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Those round slices remind me of crumpets!
After microwaving for 90 seconds, let it cool for a minute or two before popping it out of the container (it should come out easily if you’ve greased it). Then slice and eat. As, Tammy Credicott suggested in her version of this recipe in Paleo Indulgences, toasting the slices also works well (I use the broiler on 550F for 2 minutes, but a toaster oven or oven would work too).
Of course, this is just the basic of basic recipes, and you can spice it up with some Italian seasoning or some fruit mixed into the batter. When making the basic bread, I’ve found that my favorite way of eating this Paleo bread is with a hot bowl of chilli, but it also tastes great with some paleo jam or dipped in some soup. It’s not the best bread you’ve ever had, but it’s pretty good for 6 and 1/2 minutes of cooking!
