Grain-Free Bread and Crackers: Elana’s Pantry

I have chosen to feature one of my favorite blogs, Elana’s Pantry, for Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger this month.

Elana’s Pantry is one of the first three blogs I started following. I love her recipes- they are always succinct in both the ingredient list and the instructions. I have never made one of her recipes and had to throw it in the trash. Odd compliment I know, but I hate having ruined food.

In addition to her blog, Elana wrote two cookbooks (I have her third per-ordered).  I enjoy both of her books. Check out these coconut lime cupcakes I made from her gluten-free cupcake book.

And her Paleo Bread is outstanding- I keep some in my freezer in case I “need” bread.

My kids like this bread too, so I made it cute, along with gluten-free pretzels, oranges, pistachios, cheese (my kids are occasionally eating dairy cheese these days), and carrots.

I also tried out Elana’s Multi “Grain” crackers. They were great with tuna salad. I only had black sesame seeds so mine are more blue than hers. I also needed less water than the recipe called for.

And I made her Cinnamon Breakfast Bread. I omitted the honey completely and served them with dinner. I used less cinnamon because I have very strong cinnamon. They were delicious. My kids even fought over the last piece, despite it having no sweetener!

Elana is an inspiration for health and cooking. All of her recipes are grain-free, and many are dairy-free. Check her recipes out for yourself sometime, and come back here for more recipes soon!

  1. Dawn, on the paleo bread what would you substitute the almond flour with? I have intolerances for almonds…the bread looks really good!

    • Well, it is Elana’s recipe, so I haven’t experimented with it- I just followed it! If you are only intolerant to almonds you could try hazelnut flour (it should work). If you can’t eat nuts then I strongly encourage moving on to another recipe- other flours just won’t be equal subs. If you wanted to make your own sunflower seed meal, that might work too but the bread will be green.
      Best of luck!
