Gluten Free Bread Recipe: Fig and Nut Bread
A recipe for Rosemary, Fig and Nut Bread. This homemade, gluten free bread recipe is perfect for snacking as is or for serving with your favorite cheeses. A relatively low carb bread recipe, especially outstanding with goat cheese & honey.
Don’t you love it when an idea comes out as well as you had hoped? I wanted a homemade bread recipe, savory and barely sweet, that I could use for everyday snacking, as well as a gluten-free, low carb alternative to crackers on my cheese board. Whether you crave Rosemary Bread, Fig Bread or Nut Bread, this Rosemary, Fig and Nut Bread recipe is all that and more! In truth, it is the best gluten-free bread that I’ve ever tasted and I think you will think so too!
In scouring the internet for a suitable homemade bread recipe, I, of course, landed upon Elana’s Pantry and her Cranberry Almond Bread.
I was intrigued by the fact that her bread recipe contained ZERO grains…the base of the bread being almond butter. YES!
A Gluten-Free Bread Recipe
YAY!! Since I happened to have an unopened jar of almond butter, I set to finessing this delightful bread recipe to suit what I had in my mind.
And booyah! The end product was just as I had hoped.
A gluten-free bread recipe that just barely sweet from the figs and toothsome from the added rosemary. The nuts, seed and almond butter give this Rosemary, Fig and Nut Bread recipe a delightful texture that paired perfectly with the soft and creamy goat cheese I had in mind. (Are you starting to drool just a wee bit?) and a relatively low carb bread recipe to boot!
And then…top the whole thing with a drizzle of honey and you have the PERFECT appetizer, snack or breakfast treat.
Can you freeze this Bread?
YES! In fact, I freeze the just-baked loaves and then cut them later to toast them into crackers – a great gluten-free snack relatively low in carbs.
This Rosemary, Fig and Nut Bread recipe whips up fairly quickly and can also be made in advance and frozen.

I used my grandmother’s 40+year-old food slicer, similar to this one, to slice the semi-frozen homemade bread loaves into even slices. I toasted some of the slices, which made them less chewy. My hubby preferred the Rosemary, Fig and Nut Bread recipe toasted, while I preferred it not toasted.
While the world may be divided along political lines, I think we can all come together and agree that the combination of gluten-free homemade bread, goat cheese, honey, and rosemary is probably one of the greatest combinations…EVER! In fact, if we all just consumed a regular dose of the combination, I’m pretty sure that harmony would envelop the planet. Agreed? I’ll do my part…like right now!

This bread pairs so well with many things, but our favorite way to enjoy it is with a dollop of jam. Some of our favorite jams to pair with this bread are:
And while I’m pushing the whole goat cheese + honey thing right now, let me just say that a shmear of Brie wouldn’t be so bad either…or heck, just about any cheese would pair well with this delicious homemade bread.

This looks delish!
Oh it is! Remember that bread at the bar in Columbus Circle? That got me thinking about this!
Looks delicious! My mouth is watering and will definitely make this! Thanks, Lynn
They are a new favorite in our house.
I have some fresh figs that need using do you think they would work in place of the dried fig? Or might that unbalance the moisture content?
I’d be afraid that your fresh figs would be too moist. One option would be to dehydrate them in your oven…135′ for about 12 hours!
I just made this because I woke up craving something savory and figgy. I literally got chills when I took the first bite (straight from the oven). But, then I let it cool and sprinkled it with goat cheese and a bit of honey….. my life will never be the same! So good, and comforting!!! Thank you!
Oh, my friend Michelle! And I just got chills reading your note! Nothing makes me happier than when others enjoy some of our recipes as much as we do! And the goat cheese and honey…those three things were made to be enjoyed together. Do try slicing a few pieces and toasting them…my favorite way to enjoy this bread.
Thanks so much for the wonderful review! You have made me giddy!
Happy Noshing, Lynn
Made this (LOVED IT) for a friend who is gluten free and always seems to have the most boring crackers, she went crazy over this bread! Easy, delicious and healthy!
Oh good! It is so tasty and versatile.
This bread looks wonderful! I’m experimenting with gluten free baking and it can be a challenge. I also try to be plant based so I’m wondering if this recipe could possibly be made with flax eggs. Otherwise it looks perfect!
Thank you, Lynn
Hi Susan, I would think so! When you try it, pop back in and let me know.
