Keto coconut-flour bread

Keto coconut-flour bread

We almost called this one "Almost Cornbread." But... well... no corn. Don't let that stop you from pairing it with chili. Or spread the butter on thick and serve it up with a big bowl of bone broth. Primal satisfaction!

Tip!

Love this bread with soups. Love this bread for sandwiches. Or, how about a "pick two": soup and half a sandwich? Enjoy!

This bread is neutral in flavor but if you want to you can add your favorite spices or why not try 1-2 tablespoons of our holiday bread seasoning?

Storing

You can store this bread in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Make sure you slice the bread prior to freezing it and place parchment paper between each slice. That way you will always have easy access to the number of slices you need.

We recommend using a toaster or toaster oven for reheating.

Troubleshooting

Did your bread turn green when baking it? It has been known to happen with this recipe. Don't worry, it's perfectly safe to eat.

The green color is the result of a chemical reaction between the leavening agent, in this case baking soda and chlorophyl or chlorogenic acid. This reaction is most common in recipes using sunflower seeds or meal but has been known to happen with other flours as well.

To prevent this from happening you can reduce the amount of baking soda by one third and/or add a couple of teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice to the wet ingredients before adding them to the dry ones.

    Can you substitute for almond flour? Does anyone know, and if so, will it be less or more carbs? Thanks

    We have not tested this recipe with almond flour. They are not a 1:1 sub as almond flour uses a lot less moisture than coconut flour does.

    I made this for the first time today and I added the 2 tsps cider vinegar to the wet ingredients to avoid any possible issues with a green color! I made one mini-loaf (disposable pan) but didn't have enough batter left over for another loaf so made 3 muffins. Of course the muffins tested done sooner than the loaf. Next time I think I'll just make all muffins and serve with soup. I don't object to the predominantly eggy taste or the dense texture at all, because I wasn't expecting it to have the same taste and texture as sandwich bread.

    Everyone some tips!!! I been doing this for 3 times already. On the fourth time the only thing I did is separate the egg yolk and egg white. I whip the egg white to soft peak then fold it to the mixed ingredient. It will be more fluffy when baked. Plus I experiment without thinking I add 1 tbsp of ethirol. Taste more better based on my taste bud.

    Totally agree

    I find that 95%of the recipes here are delicious, well this one belongs to 5%. Horribly oily and too much coconut. I had to throw away.

    I made this first time, to serve 24 (!) as I wanted to use a cup of coconut flour&12 eggs. It fit in a regular size glass loaf pan and it was adorable!! I loved all the oil, it rose just like a loaf. Yes, it is cakey (I will try some of the adaptations) yes, I prefer keto breads with just egg white (tho the leftover yolks are kind of a bother) yes, it turned green but I didn't have almond flour so needed a coconut flour recipe. It worked!! The recipe says to use baking powder which I did and in the Tips it says baking soda may cause the green color. Which is it for this recipe? Baking powder or baking soda?

    Definitely cut down the eggs. The recipe calls for baking powder but the tips explain green color coming from baking soda? Bread did not rise, mine didn't turn out oily, I did bake for an entire hour. Does have eggy taste, not too bad, but not what I wanted. Good with butter, probably great with chili. I would recommend doing baking soda AND baking powder, cutting eggs in half, and adding another half cup of flour. Basically just try a whole different recipe.

    Just made my first bread. Not a great success as I made the smallest amount and my tin was go big. It did tase nice though even though I broke it getting it out of the tin. I added a teaspoon of mixed spice to mine. A knob of butter on the top made a really nice change after 8 months doing Keto. I will buy small individual tins and try again. Was hoping to have this at christmasy when I have visitors but it will need to be a better attempt than this one.

    can I sub. flax seed meal for the psyllium husk powder in the "Diet Doctors Best Keto Dinner Rolls"? I have had great luck making these rolls per the recipe, psyllium husk powder is very expensive and thought I might sub in the flax seed meal to reduce the cost of eating.

    Unfortunately there is not a good substitute for the psyllium in that recipe.

    I am a bread lover and I feel like I’m expecting these keto breads to taste I guess like it close enough to regular breads. I’m allergic to treenuts so I can’t use almond flour... do you have any suggestions for better tasting bread this coconut bread was horrible!
