I went totally off bread - but once in a while, it's nice to be able to eat this. Is there a better bread out there?

That's great Amit! I hope you love it. It hits the spot for me when I just need a slice of bread (and I don't want to or don't have time to make my own)

I appreciate that jake but I've been living on this block long enough to know that everything has something wrong with it. If you want bread you could do worse. I'm going to try it with mac nuts and see how it goes but a few cashews within the context of a diet otherwise low O6 and high O3 is not an issue for me.

That's why Richard tweaked the recipe. Macadamias are very low in omega-6 fatty acids. And coconut has pretty much zero.

Cashews are high in inflammatory omega-6 fats. A cup of cashew butter has 20,912 mg. of omega-6 fats. I'd steer clear of this recipe.

Nuts and their butters are concentrated sources of inflammatory 6. Ditto for sesame seeds and its butter, tahini. A cup of nut or seed butter seems like a lot of O-6 to eat.

This recipe is legit. Can be simplified further to just nut butter, eggs, baking soda and vinegar. Any nut butter I think, I used tahini and got a very respectable loaf out.

I find coconut bread to be too think and full of fiber. I always feel bloated after eating it. Another option down the same road might be banana bread made with white rice flour and/or tapioca starch.

I like the recipe on Free the Animal (I think Richard said it was adapted from someone else's recipe) for "Fat Bread". It's just coconut butter, macadamia nuts, and eggs. And baking soda: http://freetheanimal.com/2012/07/fat-bread-third-times-the-charm-mission-accomplished.html

This Against All Grain recipe is the best paleo bread recipe I've found. It's seriously good.

If you don't want to make your own then I second the rec for a TRUE sourdough bread (which you will never find at the regular grocery store) or, if you can find it, a bread like this that is sprouted gluten-free grains and also soured. If you are in a larger metro area there may be a WAPF kitchen or local WAPF baker (Weston A Price Foundation).

What about homemade sourdough bread?

Anything by Against the Grain. Made from tapioca starch and mozzarella. Relatively safe, although there's some safflower oil in it, which bugs me. But delicious beyond belief.

When I really want bread I use this adaptation of the one minute muffin:

2 Tbsp almond meal 2 Tbsp hemp hearts 1/2 tsp baking soda (I use Hains, it's grain free) 1tsp oil (olive or CO) 1 egg

Mix ingredients well in a shallow wide bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Turn the "bread" out of the bowl and slice in half horizontally. Toast each half until light brown. It reminds me of whole wheat bread. Great when you really crave a BLT!

You can use all almond meal or substitute ground flax for any portion of the nuts/seeds.

Personally I am not a fan of paleo baking, but these would be good options

http://www.amazingpaleo.com/2012/08/15/simple-coconut-bread/

sub coconut flour for wheat flour: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Coconut-Bread-108120

The link you sent says that they include wheat gluten, whole wheat berries, oat fiber, and cultured wheat -- These are things I would try to stay away from.
