Egg Free Paleo Bread Loaf
I get so many different requests for specific allergen recipes. While it is not possible (with either time or money) to make every variation of every recipe, I do take these requests to heart. I have many followers from both the LYME and AUTISTIC communities who try to use these recipes as a foundation for lowering inflammation and cleaner eating. Within these two communities, food sensitivities run rampant and I am sensitive to the struggle from my own experience.
So with that, here is an egg free paleo bread loaf. It is not nut free (working on it) but it is a great addition if eggs are out of the question. This is for the communities I hold near and dear to my heart! Eat up y’all!!!
- 1 cup cashew meal
- 1/2 cup potato starch
- 1/2 cup arrowroot
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup avocado oil
- 2 tablespoons local raw honey
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt
- 6 tablespoons flax seeds
- 1/2 cup flax milk
- Preheat oven to 350
- Because i am a rule breaker, i take all the above ingredients and place them in my nutribullet (any blender should do)
- Blend until creamy
- Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for around 40 minutes
- Please watch your oven, it might take more or less time – when my bread was ready the top was crispy and brown and the inside was close to a glutenous bread consistency

Dang Shirley, I am usually SO good about this! Problem fixed! Thanks for understanding!!!
can you substitute a different nut/seed meal or flour?
thanks so much!!
Yes, you could sub with one you are more comfortable with and it SHOULD work!
Can you substitute potato starch with more tapioca? I’m doing nightshade free at the moment. Also, can I use almond milk instead? Does flaxseed milk do anything in particular?
Hi Emma, You can definitely use almond milk, I just like flaxseed because it is nut free and neutral in flavor. More tapioca starch might make it gummy but you can give it a try. You could also consider sweet potato flour from a natural foods store instead of potato starch. Good Luck!
I love this recipe! I didn’t have cashews on hand so instead I used almost a cup of sunflower seed meal with a tablespoon of almond meal, cornstarch and tapioca starch, coconut milk instead of flax milk, brown rice syrup in place of honey and coconut oil instead of avocado oil. It turned out fabulous!!

is cashew meal the same as cashew flour? or is it what you have left after making cashew milk and then drying it?
Cashew meal is the same as flour, sometimes more coarse. You could possibly use the remnants of your cashew milk too, though I have never tried that!
Can you use something other than potato starch?I’m allergic to potatoes but I really want to try this recipe out.
I don’t have an exact sub for the potato starch. You could play around with sweet potato flour and see how that does though you would need less sweet potato flour since it is not just the starch.
Okay, I will try that out. Thanks a bunch and by the way, I love your blog!! So many awesome, yummy recipes!!!
This looks absolutely amazing! Is there anyway to substitute the potato starch for something else? My partner is allergic to potato.
I do not have a sub for the potato starch but you could consider trying a bit of sweet potato flour.
We’ve made this bread several times with a few variations (with sweet potato starch, with and without honey) and it isn’t holding together. We make our own flax milk for this recipe. Is there something you can recommend as a replacement for the honey that isn’t so sweet?
Hmmmm, I’m not sure what the problem is. You could reduce the amount of honey or use maple instead. Make sure your flax seeds are ground well too (when you blend the batter), you can even consider increasing the seeds for binding.
1. Where does one buy cashew meal? What brand?
2. Does sweet potato starch change the texture?
I make my own cashew meal by pulsing raw unsalted cashews. The sweet potato starch changes the flavor only slightly but not the texture.
Thank you so much for an egg free grain free bread. I LOVE this recipe! However, after eating it I discovered that flax and I don’t get along. For any others that have a hard time with flax and eggs, I wanted to pass on my variation of this wonderful bread. I use almond milk instead of flax milk and subbed 1/4 cup applesauce plus 1 tsp baking powder for the flax seeds and it turned out wonderful. Thanks again!
Glad you found a solution!!! No eggs is a difficult situation sometimes!
Made it nut-free. Instead of cashew meal, I used coconut-butter. Worked great and tasted awesome.
Goody goody! Thanks for reporting back!
Hi Jennifer, I am considering weaning grains (particularly wheat) out of my diet. But in our household, it ain’t nothing if you can put it between two slices of bread. This looks like a recipe I will try, but can ya’ make a decent sandwich with it?
This bread is not my very best for sandwiches, if you want to try my Legit Bread, go here: http://predominantlypaleo.com/legit-bread-recipe/ It’s $2 for the recipe but makes perfect sandwiches, french toast, etc.

Thank you so much for this! Mine turned out great…. a little on the sweet side thoughecause I accidentally oured in a tad too much maple syrup. But I did sub some things: Like instead of potato starch, I used a small cooked sweet potato, instead of all the flax, I used 2 1/2 TBS flax and 41/2 TBSP psyllium husk, instead of of arrowroot flour, I used cassava and also threw in a little extra due to the sweet potato being wet. Anyway, it sounds like I completely changed the recipe, but honestly I really used yours, just subbed some things and could not have done it without yours as a guide.. It has the consistency and texture of banana bread probably due to the baking soda rather than yeast – just some info for those wanting to know how it turned out….. I’ve written my subs down and will keep this for years to come I believe! Thank you so much for giving me a basic guideline from which to work.
Glad it worked out for you!
Would chia egg work in place of flax?
Another sub report! I just made a version of this today subbing tapioca starch for potato starch and beef tallow for avocado oil. I don’t know if anyone has ever told you this buuut, THE DOUGH TASTES JUST LIKE KFC BISCUITS. YOU HAVE CRACKED THE RECIPE!!! Thank you thank you thank you.
I’d recommend grinding the flax seeds first then letting them “egg up” with the acv and milk and sit for about 5 minutes before adding the other ingredients. That totally helped mine.
However, I would not recommend baking with tallow. It was my virgin run with tallow baking. The flavor is great but mixing it with cold ingredients makes it a bitch to clean! Also I totally added too little milk and overbaked this beauty. I love the flavor too much that I am calling it “cracker bread” and just considering my very, very brown treat as a vehicle for sauces.
Cannot WAIT to try this again, remembering my botches. What other oils have people tried? Melted coconut oil? Ghee? Lard?
You can try most any oil I think!
I have been eating paleo for 8 months, but I had not tried to make a loaf of bread until I found this recipe. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I used almond meal instead of cashew, tapioca flour instead of potato starch, olive oil instead of avocado, a salt grinder with a mix of about half salt and the other half other spices, and water instead of milk. I increased the salt to 1 teaspoon to make allowance for the other spices, and decreased the honey by half. Everything else was just as the recipe was written. What I came up with was a savory, delicious bread that is crunchy on the outside, and a cornbread-like texture inside. I will be making this again and again. Thank you for this delicious recipe!
So glad you enjoyed it Carolyn!
Hi, What is the flax milk recipe please? Thanks!
Here you go! http://predominantlypaleo.com/simple-homemade-flax-milk/

I’m sensitive to potato (and egg and a long list of other things), so I’m wondering if I can just sub more arrow root….thoughts?
Possibly! I haven’t done it myself so I can’t make any promises. Let me know if it works!
Do you have a bread for sandwhiches? We are on a tight budget so I make everything myself. Also could I sub the seed for flax meal and how much (I don’t think my food processor will break up the seeds well enough )? Do you also think cassava would work well instead of arrowroot? Thanks!
You can make the Legit Bread from the kids cookbook if you can eat eggs. It’s the best paleo sandwich bread. I also sell the mixes at http://www.legitbreadcompany.com
How much flax meal would you use? Thanks!
