This is the best paleo bread. It’s gluten free, dairy-free and nut-free and still tastes like real bread. Perfect for toast, sandwiches or just eaten plain. It’s made with cassava flour, coconut flour and flax seed to give it the perfect texture, soft in the middle and firm on the outside!

Bread. I think it’s one of the hardest things to give up when you switch to the paleo diet. I missed it so much when I first went grain free. No more sandwiches, croutons or French toast! Well don’t worry, I’ve created the best paleo bread recipe for you. It doesn’t have any grains or dairy and is also nut-free and made with cassava flour and coconut flour. Oh and did I mention it’s also really easy to make? You’re welcome!
Why this is the best paleo bread:
- It tastes amazing! You would never know it’s grain-free! Soft on the inside and firm on the outside it has the perfect texture
- Besides being grain-free it’s also nut-free. It’s made with cassava flour, coconut flour and flax seed. It’s also made without tapioca flour.
- It’s really easy to make and the clean up is so simple!
- It freezes really well so you can make a double batch and save one loaf for later
The equipment you need to make this paleo bread:
- A standing mixer (this is the one I have and love) – you could also mix this bread by hand, but it’s just more work
- A glass loaf pan (remember, never use non-stick bakeware! I discuss the health risks of doing so in this post)
How to make this bread:
You are going to love how easy this bread is to make!
- Preheat your oven to 350F
- Add all ingredients to the bowl of your standing mixer, and mix well until smooth
- Line your glass bread pan with parchment paper and transfer the dough to the bread pan and spread it evenly until smooth
- Place in the oven and bake for ~45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean
- Remove from the oven and let cool
How to use this paleo bread:
- To make toast for breakfast
- For sandwiches like BLT’s or peanut butter and jam (my blueberry chia seed jam would be amazing for that!)
- To make paleo french toast
- To make grain free croutons!
Tips for this paleo bread recipe:
- I don’t recommend trying to substitute the eggs. Cassava flour bakes much better with eggs than without
- I recommend using room temperature eggs rather than cold eggs
- Let this bread cool completely before cutting it into pieces, as it will hold together better
- This bread freezes really well so feel free to make a double batch and freeze one loaf for later
- If you don’t have apple cider vinegar use coconut vinegar instead
- If you don’t have coconut milk use another dairy-free milk such as almond milk or cashew milk instead
- Don’t use low fat coconut milk for this recipe, the low fat milk is too watery and the bread won’t cook the same
Frequently asked questions:
- What is the difference between cassava flour and tapioca flour or starch? Both come from the cassava root or plant, but the difference is that cassava flour is made from the whole root, while tapioca flour is just made from the starchy part of the plant.
- Can you substitute tapioca flour for cassava flour in this recipe? No! It will not turn out
- Can you substitute the eggs in this recipe? I do not recommend it. Cassava flour bakes best with eggs.
