Paleo Yeast Bread

If you miss the yeast-like smell and flavor of bread on your Paleo diet, this Paleo Yeast Bread recipe is your answer! It’s totally grain free, and unlike traditional yeast bread, it doesn’t require any rising time, yet still comes out tasting and smelling like the yeast bread you love. Made with a combination of coconut flour and flax, it’s soft, yet hearty, and makes great sandwiches and toast. Golden flax will give you a truer bread-like color, but the darker flax variety works just fine. This is a very dense bread. Makes great toast with jam, or you could slice thin and make a sandwich. Be sure to let the dough sit as the coconut flour needs time to absorb the liquid.
