Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 1 hour

Grain Free Sandwich Bread:

Simple Raspberry Jam:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Bread Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees ºF.

Mix all dry ingredients together. Mix all wet ingredients together in a separate bowl. Then mix the wet and dry together. Grease a bread pan with coconut oil, then add in mixture.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool, remove from pan, best when served toasted.

Raspberry Jam Directions:

Mash raspberries together in a saucepan and stir over low heat. Stir in chia seeds and honey. When mixture is well combined, remove from heat and let sit for 15 minutes, stirring on occasion. The chia seeds will absorb moisture and bind the jam together after 15 to 20 minutes.

Made this delicious looking bread. Please will you check the recipe because it seems there is not enough liquid (maybe eggs?). Half a cup of arrowroot seems a lot. I added 3 eggs and had it baked for more than an hour and it was still sticky.
Please help

This recipe looks amazing and I just made it. However, the batter was way too dry for bread, or even cookies. I originally used butter but then added 4 T. more of coconut oil, and it was still too dry. So I added 1 C. water a bit at a time, and by then it was like cookie dough. Was a liquid inadvertently omitted from the recipe or something else? I just made up the raspberry jam, and it is amazing. I baked the bread for 40 minutes, and the tester came out clean. I cut one slice hot off the end, and the texture was still a little doughy, so I put back in the oven, but ate my one delicious slice. Thank you for the recipe. I have wanted to try coconut and almond flours together, and yours was the first recipe I used. Please let me know if something was omitted here from your original. I will definitely try it again.

After reading the other comments, I will wait to see if there was something let out. However, I am new to this gluten-free eating and want to know of there is something I can substitute for the almond flour. In addition to going GF, we also have nut allergy issues so we must stay away from it. It's frustrating to find that so many recipes and products use nut ingredients. Soon, my son won't have anything to eat.

So sorry guys! I left out the 4 eggs needed for the recipe! Tropical Traditions is going to update it asap. But I feel horrible for the typo! Please forgive me, as I totally know how frustrating it can be to waste ingredients... my apologies!

Try using garbanzo bean flour with coconut flour. You need to use a bit more sweetener as it it is a little bitter

Thank You. 4 eggs make sense. By the way it tastes delicious!

Just wondering if something else could be sub. for the flax seed? Maybe gr. chia?

Has anyone tried this with an egg substitute like flaxseed or chia seeds? I have 2 gluten intolerant kids, but everyone is allergic to eggs. :(

This recipe is really very good. At first, it seemed a little dry, even with the 4 eggs, but it softened up overnight. Especially good with peanut butter and jam. A great snack. Thanks. Carol

I just live this bread. It is so tasty toasted with butter on and very satisfying. Really great for healthy eating. Thank you so much.

I make this bread regularly and love it toasted with either a sweet or savoury topping e.g. Nut butter. I only use two eggs and it turns out fine. It is easy to make and very satisfying to eat!

Made this bread exactly as posted using coconut oil instead of butter. It's delicious. Texture is perfect. I would like to try to make it again only without the eggs as we have some allergies here.

I didn't make the jam. I forgot to say that in my previous post

Can the jam recipe be used with any berry or just raspberries?
