The biggest challenge for me when candida cleansing or parasite cleansing is finding a cleanse friendly bread. I NEED a good cleanse friendly bread that I can dip into my egg yolks. If I don't have a good bread option, I can't eat fried eggs.
It's really a non-negotiable for me.
When following a candida diet or a parasite protocol, grains, gluten and yeast are all eliminated from the diet short term in order to starve off these unwanted invaders that are making your body their home. So finding a cleanse friendly bread is really a mission.
Until now that is. I had some cassava flour sitting my fridge and after having made coffee cakes, cinnamon buns and flat breads with it, I knew it would be perfect for recreating a focaccia bread.
This cleanse friendly bread is best served fresh from the oven, but it reheats well in the oven and microwave.
I am definitely still new at focaccia bread making, but I was aiming for tulips here! Making a bread garden is optional but I do recommend it if you're looking for a fun and meditative experience.
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup cassava flour
1 & 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pink salt
1 tbs fresh rosemary
1/2 cup of water*
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tbs melted coconut oil or avocado oil
Preheat the oven to 375°. Line a glass dish (I used an 8x8) with parchment paper for easy clean up.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk until there are no clumps left.
Add wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
Pour into lined dish and spread out with a spoon. Feel free to create a bread garden if you wish. You may also prefer to brush with more oil, top with coarse salt and additional rosemary.
Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
Enjoy and happily dip into your favourite soups, stews, chilis, and of course - egg yolks! I would love to see your creations so if you make this recipe, tag me on Instagram at @alchemizedwellness so I can share it with the community!
*if your mixture is dry, feel free to slowly add up to another 1/4 cup of water, one tbs at a time.
