What Goes In Grain Free Bread?
Nut flour or nuts and eggs are the essential grain-free ingredients. For this Grain Free Blender Bread, I use whole cashews and coconut flour to fill what would normally be used as regular flour or the “grains”.
What is ‘Blender Bread’?
Blender bread is one of the easiest bread recipes you’ll ever make. No yeast, kneading, or bread makers required. Everything is combined in a blender, poured into the loaf pan, and baked to perfection.
How to Make Softer Grain-Free Bread Using The Blender
Since this recipe calls for whole cashews you’ll need a high power blender or food processor to get the batter just right. The batter should be smooth and pour easily into the loaf pan.
How to Give Grain Free Bread More Volume
You’ll notice this recipe calls for 5 eggs which seems excessive but it’s key to a nice, tall loaf of grain-free bread, it also gives it a better texture.
Another important recipe note is the type of loaf pan. You’ll want to use a 7 x 3-inch loaf pan, anything larger and your loaf will be a little flat, which is still usable but not ideal for sandwiches. This type of loaf pan is also a must for many grain-free bread recipes, otherwise, the cooking time will need to be adjusted.

To make this grain-free paleo bread nut-free, simply swap the nuts in the recipe (cashews) with 2 cups of pumpkin or sunflower seeds and an additional tablespoon of coconut oil. The loaf color will be greenish but it will still taste amazing!
