I’m super excited to finally share this Brown Bread recipe. I’ve been working on a delicious SCD bread recipe for so long. Finally, after months of experimenting and tweaking, I’m happy with the result. My measure of success remains always the same method. If my husband would gladly eat this instead of “regular” bread, I know I have succeeded. He’s an honest man and I know I can always trust him for an honest opinion. This blog, for me, has always been about creating delicious recipes. Recipes that anyone would gladly eat – restrictive diet or not. It just happens to be a huge bonus that the ingredients are actually good for us too.
After two years on SCD, I had almost given up on recreating bread. Since starting SCD, bread just wasn’t bread. I’ve tried so many recipes and messed around creating my own but I was never quite happy with the final product. I like the other breads I have created on this site but I consider them more of a snack than a bread in the traditional sense. This Brown Bread conjures up memories of bread and jam from my childhood and I am quite proud of that. It is obviously not as solid as regular bread, which is quite the impossible task without gluten or grains. However, it does hold together pretty well. My favourite way to enjoy this Brown Bread is lightly toasted under the grill for a few minutes then slathered with Kerrygold butter and my homemade blackberry jam.
For those of you following a gluten and grain-free diet like me, I’m sure you’ve all experienced wanting a break from almond flour. I love almond flour, don’t get me wrong. It can be easy, however, to overdose on it. That’s why I decided to buck the trend with this bread and make it completely without almond flour. The combination of ground pecans and coconut flour really works well here and is not like any SCD bread recipe I’ve tried before.
I have found my new bread recipe – that’s for sure. And I’m pretty sure I won’t be straying far from this recipe in the future. When it works, it works, right? If you try this and you like it (or you don’t like it!) please let me know in the comments below. I’d love your feedback!
