The Best of The Paleo Bread Recipes


One of the more frequent requests we get from readers and Facebook followers is for a paleo bread recipe.  So we’ve been collecting nice looking, paleo friendly bread recipes from our favourite bloggers and food sites.

Before you put on your baking shoes and start jumping with joy, let me play the fun police card for a second. Even though these recipes are grain, gluten and dairy free, a lot of them are made with high carbohydrate starches and nut meals high in Omega-6 fatty acids, which puts them in the ‘in moderation’ or ‘pleasure food’ category. Sandwich breads and wraps are great for a quick and convenient lunch and they make the transition into paleo much easier but just remember not to rely on them as your staple.

The list is in no particular order of preference, although we kept the more regular slice bread recipes in the first half and put all the wacky, crazy, interesting wraps, rolls and tortillas in the second half.

    These recipes look great however my son is allergic to egg, has anyone made any of the breads with something instead of eggs? thanks

    • Irena says

      Hey Abbey, I haven’t tried these with the flax egg but I am sure a few people have. The thing about paleo baking is that because the flours/nut meals used don’t really have the right protein to provide the same bread texture you’d get from wheat, having the eggs really helps to bind the ingredients and to provide some protein. I would experiment with one of the recipes and make a small batch to see which one works the best.

  2. Alison says

    Many thanks for all the inspiring recipes – my Paleo regime made all the more easy by wonderful blogs and sites like yours…

    This bread is an absolute winner.

  3. says

    I love bread and I’ve been baking my own bread for 2 reasons – health and taste. But when it comes to paleo, I have to confess that I’m a complete noob. Your recipes look great but I’ve got a question. Can these paleo recipes be kept frozen and used for baking at a later time?

    • Irena says

      Do you meant to freeze the batter? I know people often freeze the actual baked bread, pre-sliced, and then defrost and quickly toast and grill the slices.

  4. Jason says

    I’m new to the paleo life so forgive me but which ingredients/breads were high in omega6? I didn’t read each recipe but it seems like most people use tapioca, arrow root, coconut or almond flour in many different recipes. Are these high in omega 6?


    • Irena says

      Hi Linda, you have to click on that recipe’s link and go to the website it’s on or the page on my site that it’s on, if it’s one of mine. Then you just choose to printe from the File in the Browser menu.

    Love your recipes and yours is my go-to site whenever I want to find a paleo recipe or version of a loved recipe.

    Two things though – the images all link to another image rather than the recipes! Confusing. Secondly I would love love love to see a vote feature for these types of recipes where theres so many versions. It’d be great to see a poll or two especially for things like breads and cakes, to find your readers faves! I can only try to many recipes myself :D :D

    Loving your work again,

    • imacri says

      Ah that’s an easy fix! We’ll get that updated. Voting is a little harder to implement but a great idea :-)

  6. says

    This is a great collection of recipes. I will be saving it as a reference. Can I point out that #6 has been described as nut-free but the key ingredients list includes cashew butter.

  7. Stephanie says

    They all look delicious.

    There is an error though – #6 is NOT nut free. The first ingredient is cashew butter. While cashew nuts are technically seeds, most people consider them nuts and many people with nut allergies are allergic to cashews also.

  8. Kristina says

    I love that you put the key ingredients right under each recipe! That made it really easy to navigate only to the recipes that didn’t have almonds in them. Excellent compilation.

    Also, the Against All Grain sandwich bread is made with cashew butter, and therefore is not nut-free.

  9. says

    Well… we don’t now how we are going to eat our paleo bread in moderation now. We want to make EVERY SINGLE RECIPE! Ahhh! Hehe. Thanks for a great paleo bread round up and thank you so much for including our recipe! #grateful

    Lots of love, Emma + Carla xox
