Here's another recipe from Food Matters TV. I made mine with apple sauce instead of eggs as I am a vegan. I will give you both options below. I've made this recipe twice now. The first time I made it by grinding my own almonds. It was delicious but was pretty dense. The second time I bought my almond flour (meal) from Thrifty's bulk section at Port Place Mall. They also had it in the health food aisle but since it only requires 1.5 cups it was much cheaper to buy a smaller amount. You can buy the tapioca starch/arrowroot flour at any supermarket that stocks Red Mill products but it's pretty expensive. You can get the tapioca starch and arrowroot flour at health stores as well.
Anyway, the second time it still didn't get much bigger so I am attributing that to using apple sauce instead of eggs. If you do use eggs, remember to buy local, free range, organic eggs. If anyone knows of a good local brand, please leave me a comment below.

Almond meal (or almond flour) is made from ground up blanched almonds. It is the best tasting gluten free flour and works well in gluten-free baking. This grain-free loaf is much lower in carbs and higher in protein and healthy fats compared to most commercial breads on the market!
(use organic ingredients where possible)
Note: If using whole almonds, place the almonds in the food processor or high speed blender and process until it resembles a fine flour.
Tip: This bread will last 3-4 days in an airtight container. Freeze leftover slices in a Tupperware container.
