This five-ingredient grain-free pistachio bread is surprisingly foolproof to make, it rises beautifully, slices as easily and tastes so heartwarming.


  • 2 cups of almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups of pistachios, without the shells
  • 3/4 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup honey, and remove 1 egg)
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 egg whites
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 320 deg Fahrenheit (160 deg Cel)
  2. Grease a loaf pan, and line it with baking paper
  3. Begin by processing the almonds until it has the texture of sand. Sift the almond meal through a sieve, and return the larger bits to the processor. Pulse until the almond meal passes completely through the sieve.
  4. Do the same for the pistachios.
  5. In a large bowl, mix the almond meal and ground pistachios together with the sugar and salt. Mix well.
  6. Add in the eggs and the egg whites, and stir the mixture until you get a homogeneous batter
  7. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and gently smooth the top surface with a spatula
  8. Bake in pre-heated oven for around 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan and slicing.
  10. Serve with a light dusting of icing sugar (optional)
