gluten free Sweet potato bread

Gluten free sweet potato bread


I finally managed to perfect this gluten free sweet potato bread recipe. Now it’s extra soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside and so good with both savory and sweet toppings. This savory bread is made with healthy ingredients, like almond flour, eggs and sweet potato. It’s a fluffy and moist, delicious with an avocado + smoked salmon topping.

But the same recipe can also per perfect for a sweet version, ideal for breakfast. In this case, just add half a teaspoon of cinnamon, half a teaspoon of ginger and 1 tbsp of sugar.

Naturally gluten free, this recipe doesn’t include commercial mix, nor gums or additives. It is also grain free, paleo, lactose free.

To make this recipe quicker, it is possible to use canned sweet potatoes, but make sure they are unsweetened. If you don’t have sweet potato puree ready, steam peeled sweet potato cubes for 10 minutes until you can easily pierce them with a fork.
