I play around a lot with bread, and this was another attempt. The texture is great and you should give it a try. Baked using bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), eggs, and a combination of almond and coconut flours, this bread took a few attempts to get me to this point. Since ingredients are pricey (and I want you to succeed first time) I encourage you to follow the recipe closely. The loaf you shape (which is fairly small) will slice into approximately 8 mini slices, but the dense texture makes each slice rather filling. The macros are calculated per two slices of (35g / 1.2oz) each, so adjust accordingly. Enjoy topped with cream cheese or goat’s cheese and smoked salmon for a posh afternoon tea option, like I did here.
Whisk the eggs and white balsamic vinegar together in a little bowl. As soon as the melted butter is cool enough, whisk the butter into the eggs. Place all the dry ingredients into a separate bowl.
Mix the dry mixture well, then pour in the egg mixture.
Mix well to combine.
Continue to mix until you can form a ball of ‘dough’. Use clean hands to shape into an oval shape (approx 5cm / 2-in high) and place onto a tray lined with non-stick parchment baking paper.
Place on the middle shelf of the oven for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, without opening the oven door, switch the oven off and leave the bread inside for an additional 10 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool completely before slicing and enjoying as little open sandwiches.

Once you try this bread and are keen to make it again, you could use the plugin on the recipe above to double your ingredients and make a bigger loaf. However, stick to the height indicated on the recipe when shaping - and rather make a longer loaf, as opposed to a 'higher' loaf, as I anticipate longer cooking times (untested by myself) if its any bulkier than indicated. Be sure to visit the Breads section on the site for other options.
Please note that almond flour and coconut flour are not interchangeable in baking. If a recipe calls for almond flour and you choose to use coconut flour, I cannot guarantee the same success. Texture, density and flavour will be compromised. These ingredients are pricey, so I always advise to use the ingredients I have used for best success first-time. (In the case of the recipe above, be sure to use the same amounts I did for both.)
