“An Amish Friendship Bread starter for bakers following the Paleo (Paleolithic/Caveman) diet.”
1 cup almond or coconut milk
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup arrowroot starch/flour
- In a 2 quart glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine the flour and sugar and mix thoroughly.
- Slowly add the milk.
- Cover loosely and let stand at room temperature until bubbly.
- This is day one of the ten day cycle. For the next ten days, follow directions for Amish Friendship Bread starter using the above ingredients, and on Day 10, feed with 3/4 cup each of almond flour, arrowroot starch and sugar, but 1 1/2 cups of the coconut milk.
From Beverly Horner: “I used homemade vanilla almond milk in the starter because that’s what I had on hand. If you use almond or coconut milk with added ingredients, it may change the recipe. Homemade is so easy so I highly recommend it. On Day 6 use same amounts as in original starter. On Day 10 use 3/4 cup almond flour and arrowroot, raw sugar and almond or coconut milk. On Day 10 use the coconut milk.”
