I was reading various posts and I noticed that a lot of people were interested in knowing bread recipes that would be good if you have crohns. I have used this recipe a lot and I it’s the most close to the real bread that I could find. I am on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet from the book "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" since last November and this diet is working for me great, and I can say that I am completely free of all the symptoms from my Crohn’s except for I still have one fistula remaining. I had two fistulas since last year , but one cured itself since I have been on the diet. I am going to continue with this SCD diet no matter how hard it sometimes is, because I want to fight very intensely this disease. This diet has given me unbelievable results, and now I hope that one day I will be completely good again like I used to be, and both physically and emotionally.

I had been trying many recipes for bread but so far this is my favorite one. You can find the recipe in the book "Lucy’s Specific Carbohydrate diet Cookbook". Here is the recipe and I hope you like it as much as I do.

3 Tablespoons butter: melted

2 eggs

1 teaspoon salt

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup dry curd cottage cheese or known also by farmer cheese

¼ cup water

3 cups blanched almond flour

In a blender or food processor, blend butter, eggs, salt, baking soda, dry curd cottage cheese, and water until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl, and stir in almond flour.

Scoop batter into 3 small (3-inch x 51/2-inch) buttered loaf pans. Bake in a preheated 325 F oven for 60 minutes. Allow loaves to cool before removing from pans.

This bread is "crunchy" when toasted. A toaster oven is recommended for toasting any of the almond bread. Toasted or not toasted you can make good sandwiches with this bread.

alexandra32 -

do you have much success using almond flour? i've dabbled with it and no matter how much levener i use, it just doesnt want to rise and set properly. i've even done the trick with the oven where you turn the oven off before it is "done" and then let it cool in the oven slightly open as this will finish cooking it and let it set properly as the shock in temperature from the hot oven to cool kitchen will cause deflation.

i tweaked the peanut butter cookie recipe in the scd to an almond butter cookie one and made it maker's diet legal. the cookies dont rise much, but then they are cookies, not bread. what bread/cakes i've made with almond flour just dont want to rise. it tastes good, but aesthetically it looks like junk and is no where near as moist as its counterpart made with a traditional flour.

so just curious as to your experiences of cooking with almond flour and other alternative flours and if you have any tricks up your sleeve when baking with them.

Regular almond flour can be found in most health food stores.  Blanched almond flour is what you need to use for this bread because it is more fine and powdery like regular wheat flour.  I bought this on the internet, here is the web site. You will find a lot of information about this flour on this web site also.  It is expensive, but it will last up too two years in the freezer.

i've used bob red mill's almond meal/flour and his coconut flour without the best results. but the almond butter cookies i make come out super tasty.

Hi:)

thanks so much:) I just ordered the blanched almond flour, and can't wait to make the bread.  Do you make anything else with it, like pancakes for example? Any other scd "safe" recipes that you have up your sleeve? Thanks so much for sharing:)

Where do you find the dry curd cottage cheese/farmer's cheese?
I have tried Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Sunrise Natural Foods, Fresh Market and no luck.

I find the DCCC at Whole Foods. If all else fails, try substituting Greek Yogurt (preferably the SCD 24-hour homemade yogurt). I also add about 1 tsp. of vinegar when mixing; I feel it helps the bread to be a bit fluffier. This is more of a "quick-bread" type of bread rather than a yeasty, rising bread. Delicious.
