The Real MaCoy Homemade GF Bread

So its Spring...well in New Plymouth its been a bit on the miserable side. Grey days and raining on and off. Maybe its the weather as we are usually out and about burning the energy of our darling kids; but the weekend served a great purpose at finally nailing a loaf of bread that was quick to prepare, loaded with nutrients, gluten-free, could be used for soft bread and the kids loved it.

Believe me; I've tried many a bread recipe and many of them have tasted wonderful to me but maybe not so to the kids, were time-consuming to prepare or else have included a lot of ingredients i.e. 8 organic eggs in one loaf of bread means a very expensive loaf if the chickens are not on the ball with there egg-laying.

The Real MaCoy Homemade GF Bread


2 cups almond meal

1/2 cup rice flour or tapioca flour (for paleo followers)

1/4 cup LSC (Linseed, Sunflower, Chia blend)

3 organic/free-range eggs

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup coconut cream

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of sea salt

1 TBS dried thyme

1 TBS nutritional yeast

2 TBS sesame seeds


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

3. In a mixing bowl, mix eggs, honey, olive oil coconut cream, apple cider vinegar until well


4. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the sesame seeds and mix until it is a thick batter.

5. Pour batter into the loaf tin, then flatten the top with the back of a spoon.

6. Sprinkle the sesame seeds all over.

7. Bake in the oven on the middle rack for 35 minutes. Check with a skewer inserted into the

middle to see if it comes out clean.

8. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing and devouring with

your favourite toppings. Kids likes it best with almond butter and banana slices, I liked it best

with avocado and pesto, hubby liked it best with a fried egg.

Not sure how long it will last - ours was gone by the day out. I'd say slice and put the leftovers in the freezer, then toast it up to preferred softness.

I'm thinking sundried tomato, basil and feta would be great in this instead of the thyme and sesame seeds.
