Simple Mills Artisan Bread Review

What better way to spend your Sunday than to bake some fresh bread! With Simple Mills you can enjoy gluten free, dairy free and soy free bread at home. It’s also paleo-friendly, low carb, grain free, yeast free and non-GMO. It can be made vegan if you use an egg substitute. This is by far a pretty good bread for people with common allergies and intolerances including those with Coeliac disease.

I came across the brand Simple Mills who make almond flour baking mixes in the USA. Thanks to Make It Gluten Free, these mixes are easy to get hold of in the UK.

The mix was really simple to use. You have the option to make either flatbread, dinner rolls or sandwich bread. What you decide alters the amount of eggs, water, apple cider vinegar and olive oil you add to it. I opted for sandwich bread as I was running low.

The instructions are pretty clear. Add 4 eggs, 1 tablespoon of water and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. I didn’t want to use that so I went for balsamic vinegar instead. Bake at 350°F / 176°C for 35 – 45 minutes and it’s done! I found that 40 minutes left enough time.

I had my doubts due there being no yeast but I saw it rise in the oven. There is a noticeable crust which isn’t crumbly or hard. When it had cooled, it was sliced to reveal the softer inside. The consistency was perhaps a little cakey but in a pleasant way. There was a sweet taste from the almonds and the balsamic vinegar worked well. It reminded me of a very mild fruit bread. I enjoyed it best with sunflower spread as it was slightly dry when served alone. This would be perfect for serving with soup or as part of a sandwich. Jam made a lovely topping too!

The ingredients read:
Almonds
Arrowroot Powder
Flax Meal
Baking Soda

It’s currently selling at £4.75 online but I got mine for £1.75 as it had a shorter date which is an amazing deal. They are being restocked soon. I can’t wait to try some of the other products in the range. Get yours here.
