Well, benzene rings and Friedel-Crafts acylations have destroyed my brain. I don’t think I can say it enough– when this “semester of hell” is over, I think I’m gonna be the happiest person on planet earth. My days have gotten SO monotonous and lame. Take this weekend for instance:
- wrote pre-labs and watched lecture podcasts
- moved out of my apartment on Saturday
- moved back into my room (until August when I transfer to corpus christi)
- food prep
- caught up on much needed sleepppppp
SOOO since I’m going to be commuting ON TOP of studying 24/7, I may be even more MIA from blog land I may not be commenting as much, but just know I’m reading and keeping up to date on all of y’all’s epic adventures!
BUT enough with the negativity! It’s a new week and I’m one step closer to being done!
Last Wednesday, I gave a sneak peek to some “Paleo” bread I concocted when it made a cameo in this picture:
Well, today I shall be sharing that recipe!!
Warning: this is the best, most amazing, super delicious, oober fantastic paleo bread you will ever put your lips on. You’ll swear magical elves put a spell on your tongue. AND it will make your kitchen smell like a pioneer woman’s bakery and ignite your nostrils in a vortex of fiery deliciousness.
High Fiber Almond Flour Bread
(Grain Free, Paleo)
3/4 cup almond flour/meal
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
4 tsp. psyllium husk
3 whole eggs
1 egg white
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350*F
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and then add in the wet. You may have to add water to the dough if it gets too thick.
With a spatula, pour dough into a greased loaf pan or cake pan, totally your preference. (I made 2 batches over the weekend and thought I’d have variety with different shapes)
*If using the loaf pan– bake for 36-37 minutes.
*If using the cake pan– bake for 20 minutes.
Cut into 8 slices and enjoy!
It tastes nutty, but not in an overpowering way. It’s reminiscient of good ol’ fashioned homebaked bread and pairs SUPER well with cashew or sunflower seed butter! I haven’t tried it with meat (like a regular sandwich) but the mild flavor would probably work just fine. And no worries to those of you out there worried about a coconut flavor– you can’t taste it at all! My dad approves and he is coconut’s #1 enemy haha
Another added bonus?? All that psyllium sure helps in the digestive depot if you catch my drift
Well I guess that’s all from me! After today, only 15 class days remain…but who’s counting?! haha
Have a great week!
