    I think I will make this bread recipe from the Elana’s Pantry website. It should be fairly low FP, and I have the ingredients! Be sure to use the right sized pan.
    Simple Bread
    2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
    ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    3 eggs
    1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey
    ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda
    In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, then add agave and vinegar
    Stir wet ingredients into dry
    Scoop batter into a well greased 7.5 x 3.5 magic line loaf pan
    Bake at 300° for 45-55 minutes on bottom rack of oven; until a knife comes out clean
    Cool and serve
    Makes 1 loaf (about 12 slices)

    Anyone who cannot tolerate nuts may want to substitute coconut flour. I can’t promise it will work, but who knows?

    I did not have a small bread pan, so used a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch square Corningware casserole dish. It worked just fine, and the bread was done in 45 minutes. I’ll let you know how it is after I have it with breakfast in the morning.

    It’s pretty good and so easy to make! I’d make it again.

    How did it taste and any symptoms to report?

    It has a nice nutty flavor and a dense texture, very good. I think butter or jelly would add to a good thing. I ate about 1/10 of the bread and had no symptoms.

    As bad as I am at math, I estimate the FP to be about 7.2 for 1/10 of the loaf. Not bad if you combine it with 0 FP foods like eggs, bacon, and cheddar cheese for a meal.

    I have made this recipe before, and it really is good. Elana’s Pantry has some really great recipes. However in regards to the comment about substituting coconut flour, I really don’t know think that would work unless you altered the other ingredients significantly. Might be easier to just find a different recipe. Coconut flour cannot be substituted 1:1 for other flours like almond flour, because it generally requires much more egg and liquids. Doesn’t coconut flour also have a very high FP value?

    Coconut four is 15 grams FP for 1.1 ounce. 12 grams from fiber.

    Thanks for pointing out the facts about coconut flour, Budgiemom. I never considered its FP or how it worked in recipes. Now the I am enlightened, I know it is not the best substitute for the almond flour.

    No problem, JI. I would hate to see your bread turn into a hockey puck.
