Paleo Cinnamon Bread

Here is where the recipe came from.  You have to scroll down a ways to see it.  I’m reprinting it here to make things easier!

**Important note: The first time my family made this, we used Trader Joe’s Almond Meal. It’s a great price, but if you look at the stuff you can see the skins mixed in with the almond meat (unblanched) and it’s pretty coarsely ground.  The bread came out really heavy and it dried out by the next day.  The next time we made it, I bought almond meal/flour at Whole Foods in the bulk section. Way more expensive, but it was also very finely ground with no obvious skins included.  The bread came out light, soft, and stayed moist for several days. The taste was also better and more balanced! This is a great article on how to buy almond flour.

Ingredients

2 cups almond flour (see note above)

2 tbsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

5 eggs

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup raisins

1/4 cup walnuts

Directions:

  1. preheat oven to 350
  2. cut a piece of parchment paper to fit your bread pan, with enough sticking out on either side to make “handles” to pull it out
  3. combine almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized bowl
  4. combine eggs, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla with a hand mixer (or in a stand mixer) until all ingredients are well incorporated
  5. slowly add dry ingredients to the wet, and continue mixing
  6. once everything is well mixed, add raisins and walnuts
  7. pour batter into bread pan
  8. bake for about 40-45 minutes. test with a toothpick in at least two places to make sure it’s clean
