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
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.
