If you’re looking for a delicious gluten-free bread recipe that’s also low in carbs, I’ve got just the one! It’s also a great option for anyone who’s following a keto or paleo meal plan. I made this gluten-free bread with hazelnut meal/flour since the hazelnut is Oregon’s official state nut. You could use almond flour if you prefer, but I’m almond intolerant. Scroll down to see the gluten-free bread recipe I used—and get a quick video tutorial. 

 Hello, Hazelnuts!

A lot of us here pay attention to what we eat and try to eat wholesome, nutritious foods. So we’re always looking for ways to tweak recipes to satisfy our food preferences and intolerances—as well as our taste buds! Because this gluten-free bread recipe uses hazelnut meal/flour, it only has 1.2g of carbohydrate per serving. This recipe makes 12 servings, so you’ll want to cut the loaf into 12 slices if you want to figure out the carb to slice ratio. 

While some gluten-free bread can taste bland or be too dense, this recipe results in light, fluffy bread with great flavor and texture. We think it’s especially tasty with butter—or whatever your favorite spread is! It’s also really good for making sandwiches.
