Grain-free and Nut-free Bread
This grain-free bread is a little sweeter, like a challah, due to the natural sweet flavor of Tigernut flour. This bread has amazing flavor, and wonderful texture, and is really fun to make. Enjoy it with some grass-fed butter, or use it to make a tasty sandwich!

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (tigernut flour, cassava flour, tapioca starch, pea protein, salt, baking powder, psyllium husk powder, and quick rise yeast.)
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the eggs, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and honey. Bring together over low to medium speed.
- Add about half of the dry mix to the stand mixer. Combine over medium low speed. Then add the remaining dry mix and combine until smooth and thoroughly mixed.
- With the mixer running on low speed, add the warm water little by little until entirely incorporated.
- Grease a large mixing bowl with olive oil, and pour the bread dough into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and allow the dough to proof for 1 hour in a warm spot. On top of an oven running at low temp (250F) works well.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Grease a standard loaf pan with butter or your choice of fat. Scoop the dough into the loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
- Make an egg wash by whisking 1 egg with a little water. Brush the top of the uncooked dough with egg wash, then place the loaf pan in the preheated oven on the center rack.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Remove and brush with more egg wash.
- Bake for 15 more minutes. Remove and brush with egg wash one last time.
- Bake for a final 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool before removing from the loaf pan.
- Serve warm with a generous amount of butter. Keeps refrigerated (covered tightly) up to 5 days.
