    Bread machine recipes?

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone have any PB-friendly bread machine recipes? During the cooler months, I baked bread every other day. Teh Hubby's going to be sad if the bread machine turns into a doorstop.

    Bread is not part of the PB because all bread, with the exception of some coconut flour based quick-breads, are made from grain flour. Instead of the bread machine, fire up the grill and see if he complains about a lack of bread when there is steak on the table. ;-)

    I would also recommend you check out the PB 101 section for more information about why PBers don't eat grains.

    Good luck!

    @ AliceH:
    I had my hubby ask the same question for me, before I joined the forums. I got the same answers (although I missed the "bacon and sex diet" - I like that one!). My hubby had gifted me with a bread machine for Christmas a few years after we got married - an item I had wanted since before we were married. It absolutely made my Christmas and now, the thought of giving it up is so sad to me. However, I have to admit that after only a couple months of being Primal - I do not miss the bloating and pain that came with eating all those grains. I guess I might have to join you on posting on Craig's List . : )

    The point is not to make a traditional gluten bread, the point is to find something to do with the bread machine. I see "bread" recipes here all the time, but they all seemed to be geared toward firing up the oven, which is impractical until probably October. Turning the oven on long enough to bake, for instance, this recipe would require running the air conditioner for probably two hours after the bread is done, which is neither financially or environmentally desirable. Unfortunately, I don't have experience with converting traditional recipes to work in a bread machine, and I don't have any experience trying to use, say, almond or coconut flour for baking, so I was hoping someone who did have some experience could offer some insight.

    Ahhh...that makes sense. I didn't even think of trying to experiment using the bread machine to create primal treats. Perhaps you need to be the trailblazer here!

    The recipes I have seen for breads with coconut or almond flour do not include yeast or a starter or kneading -- and are essentially quick-breads. I'm not all that familiar with bread machines as I make bread (probably should be past tense there) either by hand or in my KitchenAid mixer - if a bread machine can work with a quick-bread and no rising time then I think you could convert a recipe to your machine. See this page for a discussion on how to convert a standard recipe - the biggest factor to consider is controlling the volume of the dough due to space limitations.
