Favorite SCD / GAPS Almond Bread

I am not exactly sure where I found this recipe at this point. Most likely it was www.pecanbread.com which has an incredible archive of recipes for the SCD or GAPS diets. It is called Lois Lang Light and is a lighter version of the famous Lois Lang Bread. This bread is a wonderful no-grain almond flour bread, that is rich and delicious. The following recipe makes 2 loaves of bread.

  • 7 c almond flour
  • 1 1/4 c dry curd or cream cheese
  • 7 T butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/2 t salt
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 c water
  • 2 T caraway seeds

Method:
If you have a food processor you can add all the ingredients (except egg whites) and process until mixed. Whip up egg whites and fold gently into the nut mixture. Pour into two greased bread pans and bake for around 40 minutes at 325 F.

Alternatively you can add 2t baking soda and add the eggs without separating them and whisking the egg whites. The bread will be lighter if eggs are separated. Either way it is a very tasty bread. We like to toast it and make it into crackers for snacks as well.

    No baking soda? Was that accidentally omitted? I added 1-1/4 tsp baking soda and it turned out well. I didn’t separate the eggs. Maybe you are using the whipped egg whites as leavening. If so, those you don’t separate the eggs could be in for leaden loaves. Suggest mentioning that.

    At any rate, thanks for the great recipe. I will bake it again (with baking soda added).

      Oh yes, absolutely. I generally freeze one loaf if I’m making this recipe.

    I just found your website and wanted to make this, but I have no idea what dry curd is and I can’t have cream cheese (I’m on GAPS too…that isn’t allowed is it?). Can you please explain what that is?

      Oh the cream cheese is just made from the SCD yogurt (which is just homemade yogurt that has been incubating for 24 hours min). To make the cream cheese simply strain the yogurt for 12 or so hours. Check out this video to help demonstrate how I make it.

      Dry curds are made from cottage cheese and are also called farmer’s cheese. I have found this link which should be helpful for you. It also gives sources for where to find it.

    this recipe is totally rad! i usually add banana and extra cream cheese to make it a sweet treat with agave syrup and dutch cocoa powder as well. The extra moisture needs a slightly longer baking time. I do 350 degrees for 50 minutes. so easy, SO GOOD!

      Yum that sounds delicious! Agave syurp and cocoa I can’t eat at the moment on the GAPS diet, but I sure wish I could, I will try it with some bananas and dates and maybe hazelnuts instead 🙂
