Make this Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day this year! It’s so fluffy and moist and perfect when you toast it up with some butter!



  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons monk fruit sweetener (mine is a monkfruit/erythritol mix)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (1/2 tablespoons lemon juice or white vinegar + 1/2 cup whole milk), room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Affix the c-dough hook attachment to the mixer.
  3. Place the almond flour, tapioca flour, monk fruit sweetener, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt in the bowl of a standing mixer.
  4. Turn the mixer on and slowly pour the buttermilk into the bowl.
  5. Once the dough comes together, transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Use your hands to pat and smooth the dough into a ball.
  7. Sprinkle the ball with additional tapioca flour.
  8. Use a sharp knife to cut a small “x” into the top of the ball.
  9. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until it sounds hard when you knock on it.
  10. Allow the bread to cool for about 30 minutes before you slice into it with a bread knife.


  • If you’re making your own buttermilk, mix it together and allow it to sit out for about 30 minutes to thicken and come to room temperature.
