💕 Why You'll Love This Recipe
- Candida Diet Friendly Bread
This baguette bread recipe is carefully crafted to exclude ingredients that commonly trigger Candida overgrowth, including gluten, dairy, sugar and yeast, making it a safe and enjoyable choice for those on the Candida diet.
This recipe features nutrient-dense ingredients such as almond flour, coconut flour, and psyllium husk powder, which provide essential vitamins, minerals, fibre and healthy fats to support your well-being.
- Satisfying Accompaniment
With its more nutrient dense nature, even a quarter to a half of one of these baguettes will satiate your appetite and complement any meal perfectly.
To prepare this delectable candida diet-friendly baguette bread, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Almond flour: Almond flour, derived from blanched almonds, is low in carbs and high in healthy fats, fibre, and protein. It adds a delicate nutty flavour to the bread.
- Coconut flour: Coconut flour is an excellent gluten-free flour alternative that contributes to the bread's light texture and imparts a subtly sweet flavour.
- Psyllium husk powder: Psyllium husk powder acts as a binding agent and helps create the desired bread-like consistency. It is high in soluble fibre which aids digestion.
- Ground flaxseed: Ground flaxseed adds moisture and enhances the nutritional profile of the bread with its high omega-3 fatty acid content.
- Extra virgin olive oil: Olive oil contributes to the bread's moisture and adds a subtle richness to its taste. Use a high-quality olive oil preferably from a glass bottle.
- Eggs: Eggs act as a natural leavening agent and provide structure to the bread.
- Other ingredients include salt, water and baking powder.
This recipe makes two medium sized baguettes, however, because it is more nutrient and calorie dense than traditional bread, this recipe can happily provide 4-6 servings. I recommend cutting the bread lengthways and then widthways to create convenient portions once stored.
To maximize freshness, store the baguette bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. For longer storage, slice the bread and freeze it in a sealed bag for up to a month. Thaw individual slices as needed.
