How to Successfully Bake Vegan Almond Bread
Vegan almond bread can tricky. And sticky. At least in the middle. Without the elevating power of eggs, the centers of vegan almond flour loaves tend to rise and fall in a predictable and gooey way.
One way around this is to go small: make bread in mini loaf pans or a muffin tin. A second method? Make a free-form loaf, such as this quick and easy Almond Flour Soda Bread. It is equally perfect for slicing or tearing into pieces.

Adding to the good news, this bread is also easy-to-make!
Add to the flour mixture, stirring until completely bended. It will seem as though there is not enough liquid as you first begin stirring, but keep going (and do not add more water). Soon you will have a blended and stiff, yet soft, dough.
Shape & Bake the Loaf
Shape the dough into a ball and place on the prepared sheet. Flatten the dough into a circle measuring about 5 inches (12.5 cm) across.
Using a sharp knife, carefully cut two very deep slashes (almost all the way through) into the dough (making a cross).
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Place a piece of foil over the top (to prevent excess browning) and bake 5 minutes longer. Turn oven off, leaving bread in oven for 15 minutes longer. This allows the center to cook all the way through.
Cool the bread on a wire cooling rack and you’ve got bread! The texture is tender, firm, and akin to a whole wheat soda bread in taste, texture and appearance.
Vary the Bread with Add-Ins & Flavorings
Like other basic soda bread recipes, this one can be varied with all kinds of flavors and other add-ins. Traditional options include caraway seeds, currants or raisins, orange zest, or the sweetener of your choice, but you can customize the bread to your liking (chocolate chunks, anyone?) .
As mentioned earlier, the loaf can be torn off into chunks (ideal for snacking or dunking into soup), but it also slices beautifully (including super-thin slices).
