This delicious cinnamon almond flour bread is a versatile low carb, gluten free and paleo bread recipe the whole family loves! Simple ingredients, nourishing, soft and delicious.



  • 2 cups fine blanched almond flour
 (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup Flax seed meal or chia meal 
(ground chia or flaxseed, see notes for how to make your own)
  • 5 Eggs and 1 egg white whisked 

  • 1.5 tsp Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 23 tbsp of clarified butter (melted) or Coconut oil; divided. Vegan butter also works
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon plus extra for topping
  • Optional chia seed to sprinkle of top before baking


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×4 bread pan with parchment paper at the bottom and grease the sides.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together your almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, flaxseed meal or chia meal, and 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon.
  3. In another small bowl, whisk together your eggs and egg white. Then add in your maple syrup (or honey), apple cider vinegar, and melted butter (1.5 to 2 tbsp).
  4. Mix wet ingredients into dry. Be sure to remove any clumps that might have occurred from the almond flour or coconut flour.
  5. Pour batter into a your greased loaf pan.
  6. Bake at 350º for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Mine too around 35 minutes but I am at altitude.
    Remove from and oven.
  7. Next, whisk together the other 1 to 2 tbsp of melted butter (or oil) and mix it with 1/2 tbsp of cinnamon. Brush this on top of your cinnamon almond flour bread.
  8. Cool and serve or store for later.


  • For storage, it’s best to keep wrapped in foil or ziplock in fridge. The bread freezes well for meal prep.
  • If you you use a larger pan, the loaf slices will be less fluffy but equally delicious.
  • To make the flaxseed or chia meal, simply place the the flaxseeds or chia seeds in a coffee grinder and grind until a fine meal is formed.
