Savory Almond Flour Bread started out the way many of my Kalyn’s Kitchen favorite recipes do – with an idea from a reader! In February a reader named Karen left a comment on my recipe for Flourless Savory Breakfast Muffins saying she enjoyed making the recipe as a loaf of bread. She gave me her cooking temperature and told me to be sure to spray the loaf pan well, and I couldn’t wait to try it.

But if you know me at all you’ll realize I’d experiment with the recipe just a bit, and when I tried making this almond flour bread with Kara we made it a couple of times, tweaking it each time until we thought the flavor was amazing. We divided up the leftovers of our final version, and I ate my share for breakfast for a few days in a row, toasting the bread and spreading some butter on.

But even though I did really enjoy the almond flour bread for breakfast, I want to emphasize that this is not just a breakfast bread! I love it slightly toasted and dipped into soup, which is one of the ways I miss eating regular bread. Try this easy low-carb bread recipe and see what you think!

What ingredients do you need for this recipe?

What hemp seeds did I use for the almond flour bread?

There are many brands of hemp seeds, and all add a nutty flavor and add a nice texture to baked goods. But I am partial to a brand called Hemp Hearts (affiliate link) which is what I used for this recipe.

What size loaf pan did I use for this recipe?

I used a 9 inch x 5 inch loaf pan (affiliate link) for this recipe, but I think a slightly smaller size would work.
