Paleo Bread. I’ve seen this product on Facebook through Julian Bakery for months now. I was curious, but no way was I going to pay their shipping fees which are really steep (due to the product being shipped fast and frozen).
What is it?
It’s gluten-free, paleo (in some definitions) bread. It comes either made with almond flour or coconut flour.
I stumbled across it at Natural Grocer last week in Cedar Park. $10 a loaf, 16 tiny slices a loaf. Don’t ask me why, but I bought 1 loaf of almond and 1 loaf of coconut.
Almond is 3 Weight Watchers P+ a slice. The coconut is 1 WW P+ a slice.
The texture is dense and it’s chewy. The almond more than the coconut. Reminded me of a saturated brown sponge.
To me the almond was tasteless, dense, and almost in-edible. I seriously had to choke it down.
The coconut was better, but not much. At least I could swallow a bite without coughing/choking on it.
I tried them both toasted, untoasted, grilled. Made a breakfast sandwich, grilled cheese, and a turkey avocado sandwich.
Unimpressed. I threw the almond away. It was that bad. More than half a loaf went into the trash.
I kept the coconut to keep working with it, because i’d spent $20 total on bread that was supposed to be fabulous. I read some people were toasting it and breading things with it, but to be honest, I don’t care THAT much about breading anything to spend $10 on a loaf of weird bread, just to toast and grind it!
I won’t be buying either flavor again. It’s pricey and it just plain doesn’t taste good or work well for much of anything. I was skeptical, but this confirmed my suspicion.
That’s just my honest opinion 😉
