Flourless Bread


 badem ekmeği

That amazing looking bread you see above has no flour inside. Not very common for avid grain fans (do I need to remind our most famous dishes?) like the Turkish people, right ?

I assure you, this can be gobbled up without any guilt . It’s a very common and a kind of anonymous recipe for those on a Paleo or low carb diet. Imagine giving your type 1 child a piece of bread without any insulin injection – cool huh ? I find it to be a very nourishing and a low carb breakfast option for my daughter.
She is a bread lover, just like her dad. She just cannot give it up. My husband always tells me he can never feel full after a meal if he doesn’t eat bread -which is a common problem for Turkish people- and I stare at the skies, letting out a huge sigh. Maybe I am fighting a losing battle, I do not know.  But I feel like I need to leave her with an option when I can’t be around even if I want to.
So I give her this, with some homemade Nutella and watch her watch her cartoons while she devours it. Sometimes she asks if we have any actual bread at home. The white one, she calls it. No honey, I keep telling her, that one is really unhealthy. She nods. 
2 cups (160 gr) almond meal
1 cup (80 gr) coconut flour
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon himalayan salt
1 tablespoon nigella seeds
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
4 eggs
1/2 cup of water
Mix the eggs with salt and olive oil. Add the remaining ingredients and prepare a dough very much alike to a cake dough. Preheat the oven to 180 C degrees and pour the dough in a mold covered with a parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes.
