Flourless Almond Butter Bread

close-up photo of slices of flourless almond butter bread on a cutting boardThis low carb, gluten free bread is just five ingredients and prepared in one bowl. It’s a great bread for sandwiches, toast and more.

One of my favorite low carb breads has been this flourless peanut butter bread. The other day I got the idea to try it with almond butter instead. And I love the results even more.

The almond butter flavor is light and lends a subtle sweetness to the bread. The bread itself is soft, but sturdy enough for spreading jams, butter, Nutella.

This bread also rose higher than the peanut butter bread, making it lighter and less dense. I imagine this would also make a good sweet quick bread if you add a little more sugar to it. I’ll definitely be making this one again.

You only need one bowl to make this gluten-free, flourless, low carb almond butter bread. This recipe makes one large loaf, but you can also halve the recipe and make two mini loaves like I did for my flourless peanut butter bread.

Ingredients:

  • cups  almond butter
  • large eggs
  • tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp granulated white sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8.5 x 4.5" loaf pan (a 9 x 5" pan also works).

  2. In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Whisk together until all ingredients are completely mixed together and the batter is smooth and glossy. If you find the batter hard to mix, you can also use a hand mixer, but I just used a whisk. Pour batter into loaf pan. Use a spatula to smooth out the surface.
  3. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the surface of bread bounces back when you press on it, and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let bread cool before slicing and serving. Store leftover bread in the fridge.

  1. I was interested in making this bread until the fact that it had 2 cups of almond butter sunk into my brain. Would that be healthy bread? My husband needs to take regular bread out of his diet ASAP and I have been looking for a bread recepie. Can you give me some info on caleries, fat content and etc. please. Thank you

    • Hi Maria. This makes one very large loaf which is why so much almond butter is used. you can also halve the recipe and make 2 mini loaves with just half the ingredients. with regards to health and diet, I recommend you consult your doctor or nutritionist before making this for your husband. This is a personal blog posting recipes from my kitchen. I’m not a nutritionist or dietitian or physician so I don’t provide nutritional information.

  2. I’m always on team “no flour”, so this flourless AB bread is right up my alley!  It looks mighty fluffy and delish!

  3. Looks awesome for passover! How does it freeze? (how does it defrost?) Also, is there any replacement for vinegar (passover plain and cider vinegar are gross…) Can I use salt/baking soda??

    • there is already baking soda in the recipe. The vinegar is there to activate the baking soda. you will not taste the vinegar.

  4. Which kind of almond butter did you use?

    • I use Barneys almond butter. I recommend using no stir almond butter for baking as it tends to be less runny and more consistent texture.

  5. I’m not able to eat sugar, I’m following a paleo diet. What can I use in its place?

  6. Could I replace the almond butter with coconut butter for this recipe?

  7. Hi there,

    I can’t have eggs and was wondering if they are in the recipe more for binding or for leavening? I have a list of substitutions I can try out but I just need to know which effect I’m looking for.
    Thanks!
