Irish Soda Bread (Low Carb | Paleo | Gluten-Free)

This dairy-free, low carb, gluten-free, paleo, Irish soda bread recipe is super quick and easy to make!

Easy-Peasy Bread…

Irish Soda Bread is a ridiculously quick and easy bread to make. Plus it’s great sweet or savory. My family loves this bread with a spread of butter and dipped into soup, especially this Broccoli & Kale Soup. And if we’re in a sweet mood, then we spread it with butter (obviously) and add a spread of Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam on top, for a lovely, satisfying snack.

No-Yeast Wonder…

This delicious and dense bread has a lovely rise to it, because of the chemical reaction between the baking soda and buttermilk. In this recipe, the buttermilk in made with lemon juice and unsweetened almond milk

Ingredients You Will Need…

  • Almond Flour & Flaxseed Meal – The combination of almond flour and flaxseed meal, helps give the texture of bread, like in these Buttered Bread Rolls and Low Carb Bread Loaf recipes.
  • Eggs – Here I go again, stressing the importance of room temperature eggs. It really does make a difference when you’re baking, and this recipe is no exception. If you don’t have room temperature eggs, simply put the cold eggs in a bowl of warm water, for 3 minutes. Voilà!
  • Almond Milk – Or your favorite unsweetened nut milk.
  • Lemon Juice – Alternatively, you can use apple cider vinegar.
  • Baking Soda – This is used a leavening agent which gives the bread its rise.

The “X’ On Top…

It’s traditional to score an “X” on top of the loaf before baking, because people believed that it would bless the bread and help protect them and their families. But the other reason is, because it helps cook the middle of the bread and aid it in rising.

Serve & Store…


STORE – Store this loaf an air-tight container for 3 days (if it lasts that long), ours disappears in one sitting!
