  1. 1

    Paleo Pumpkin Spice Bread

    So what do I love about this recipe? Well the spice mix is the best tasting and also healthiest Pumpkin bread mix I have found to date, with a short list healthy ingredients it is what I call a no BS mix. It provides great flavor with an ingredient list of ingredients that you can decipher, things like Hazelnut flour and Coconut flour.



    • Make Paleo Spice Cake and Muffin Mix according to package instructions, by combining pumpkin with wet ingredients before adding the dry mix.
    • Spoon batter into two bread pans, two 9" round cake pans, or one 9x13" pan
    • Bake cake pans at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until cakes are cooked through and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

  2. 2

    Paleo Coffee Cake

    So to kick off this tastebud extravaganza, is our favorite on the list -- Deliciously Organics Paleo Coffee Cake. In fairness to the rest of the competitors Coffee Cake might be my favorite bread on the planet but all the same the bread was absolutely amazing. Light flavor of the bread due to the coconut milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and coconut oil was so tantalizing we made a second batch in the same day. The breads ability to melt in your mouth made this our favorite on the list. With 8 eggs in the recipe also an excellent source of protein even if you are using this as your dessert. So throw on the Coffee grab some Almond milk and sit down with this Paleo bread and you have a recipe for a great morning.


    • 1 cup coconut flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 8 large eggs (organic and pastured preferred)
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 cup plain whole yogurt
    • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted
    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    Topping Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups nuts (we used cashews you an also use almonds or cashews)
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons honey
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into tablespoons

    Obviously we loved the bread so making it just as is will taste great. However, in our effort to continually improve (we're crossfitters what can you expect?) we think adding in a couple of splashes of coconut milk will help bring some more moisture to the recipe, due to the coconut flour's uncanny ability to soak up 8 eggs!

  3. 3

    Paleo Lemon Bread

    So its hard to know where to start with this Paleo bread, the great range of flavors seem to dance on your tastebuds. The variety of the taste is the perfect combination of sweetness and tart, while the coconut oil and milk give it an added creaminess that is to die for. Refreshing Paleo lemon bread and a warm cup of tea makes the perfect combination.

    My favorite part of this recipe is the homemade glaze that goes on top of the bread. Typically glazes on anything Paleo are non existent or the taste makes you wish that was the case. However, in this recipe vanilla extract, real lemon juice, and honey make a great glaze that can make you believe you are truly eating icing.

    The perfect way to eat this is sitting down with a warm glass of tea in the evening before sitting down to do some reading or watch your favorite show.


    • 6 eggs
    • ¼ cup coconut oil or butter, melted
    • zest from 2 lemons
    • juice from 2 lemons plus enough milk of choice (coconut milk from can or box, dairy milk, almond milk, etc.) to equal 1 cup*
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • 2/3 cup coconut flour (do NOT substitute another flour – it will not work. You can find coconut flour here: Organic Coconut Flour)
    • 1 heaping teaspoon baking soda
    • ¼ tsp salt

    Lemon Glaze:

    • 2 T butter or coconut oil
    • 2 T honey
    • 2 T milk of choice
    • zest and juice from 1 lemon
    • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

  4. 4

    Paleo Zucchini Bread

    Its hard to go wrong with Zucchini bread but its even harder to go completely right and that is what our friends over at against all grain have done. They showed us the path to Paleo bread enlightenment and it goes through this Zucchini bread.


    • 1-1/2 cup blanched almond flour
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 3 eggs, beaten
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1 ripe banana
    • 1 cup shredded, unpeeled zucchini

    Perfect pairing is this with a glass of ice cold unsweetened almond milk. We cheated on the ingredients and added in a pinch more cinnamon and nutmeg, either way its delicious!

Sharing a recipe with coconut or almond flour with no advice on where you get it or how you make it is less than helpful.

You need to join a good co-op group, if possible! I get my coconut flour there for $2.00 less per lb. I also try to make things WITHOUT almond flour, as it's SO expensive! Good luck! Amazon is another source, if you don't have a co-op in your town or nearby....then there is always Whole Foods stores!

you can buy coconut oil and flour and almond flour at the bulk barn in Ontario.. not sure where you are living.
Also Bobs mill makes all of the above as well but is a bit more pricey .... when baking mix your dry then your wet I personally like to melt the coconut oil to liquid before baking with it hope this helps! ;)

Coconut flour is available in most grocery stores. Bob's Red Mill is the most common, but there are many other brand names. You can buy it online also. Most health food stores carry it too.

You can easily find distributors for coconut and almond flour by searching the web. Most are sold at health food stores or even costco for that matter. It so easy.....maybe thats why it wasnt included....just saying.

Really? It's in most stores. Buehler's, giant eagle, earth fare, mustard seed. Just do some research instead of being nasty to someone who posted some incredibly helpful recipes! These things are basic staples in most paleo kitchens!

I am new to the Paleo lifestyle and am a little confused. I have read that all sweeteners were a no no, including dates, honey, maple syrup. Help please

Kimberly (not verified)

Dates are definitely allowed from all sources I've ever read. Although they do have a considerable amount of sugar, so you wouldn't want to eat a ton of them. However, honey and maple syrup are kind of a gray area. Many people include raw honey and organic pure maple syrup in small quantities. If you're doing the Whole 30, you'd want to stay away from the honey and syrup.

You can make your own almond meal as well in a food processor. Really easy with plain almonds! :-)

4.Apply coconut oil to a baking dish (to grease it)
5.Pour batter into baking dish, preferably an 8×8 dish, smooth top of batter

Reading the pumpkin bread recipe - a cup of honey???? That's really not Paleo. I can just feel the insulin surge coming on.

Trader Joes has almond flour pretty cheap. If you have a decent food processor or VitaMix, you can buy bulk organic almonds and make your own. Also know that coconut flour requires a LOT of additional eggs/moisture --like four times as much! Paleo Plan (online) is an affordable and very helpful source of info.
