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 powder 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.

    Impossible for this to not to taste like eggs when the recipe calls for 6 eggs. This came out ok, except for egg overload. I will make it again, but with something other than a half dozen eggs. Maybe psyllium or flax.

    Hi Shazi!

    Of course it's OK to eat cow (butter) that is not grass fed. But I'm convinced that grass fed is a better choice.

    Hi Shazi!

    I think it's a good idea to eat vegetables! But I have hard to believe that you in normal cases should develop fatty liver when eating a ketogenic diet with fewer vegetables.

    Just made this bread and besides it not rising at all it turned out just like the picture above. Definitely unable to eat as bread since it didn’t rise though.

    Sorry I dont have all those values. Terminology and values can also differ between countries so I'm not sure if this is a service that we will have in the future.

    Hi,
    This recipe was good, but it doesn't look anything like the picture. When pouring the batter into a bread pan, it did not go up to 2/3 full. Can you please give me the actual size the bread pan should be?
    Thanks.
  22. Joyce
    This is not my idea of bread I could use to replace my very missed "sammiches" :) However, that being said, I did find a wonderful use for it. It makes THE BEST french toast I have ever eaten! YUUUUUUUUM
  23. Jen
    Mine did too. You should try to find aluminum free baking powder. That should do the trick.
  24. Jen
    Should this be baking powder instead of baking soda?
  25. Shazi
    Hi peter.is it necessary to use only extra virgin olive oil or can we use pomace olive oil for salads and cooking food?

    Hi Shazi!

    It's always a good idea to choose quality products....so I would prefer virgin olive oil. :) But it's not a catastrophic if you every now and then choose a cheaper product. :-)

    Hi Peter,
    Should this be baking powder instead of baking soda? I used aluminum free baking soda, have tried baking it in both metal and glass pans, and it still has the bluish green tint. Thank you!

    Hi Jennifer!

    I think baking soda is correct.

    Hi! Followed this recipe exactly because I miss bread! I was very disappointed when it came out of the oven, concave, blue and of bad taste. It tastes like burnt salt and it looks like the inside of an avocado. It doesn’t look anything like the reference picture you used. I don’t know if anyone else had these issues. But I did so it’s not your fault.

    I tried this recipe with egg replacer. It came out more corn-bread like, albeit flat, in texture. I also made it with actual eggs. That came out more bread like. The eggs actually make this dough thicker. It was kind of gelatinous. I substituted olive oil for the coconut oil too. The bread was like normal normal white bread with a bit of a heavier crust on top.

    I think to get something similar to a true corn-bread, the recipe should be adjusted to use fewer eggs (thus making the batter more dense) and add more of another kind of liquid.

  31. Marine4Life92
    Followed recipe to a tee, but the bread came out with a blue-green tint on the bottom half. I'm thinking that the yolks need to be omitted, and only use the egg white, which I also think will give it that nice crust as in the photo. Has anyone tried that yet, and if so how did it turn out?
  32. Marine4Life92
    Update from my post yesterday. Followed recipe, except I omitted the egg yolk, only used egg whites. No blue-green tint, but in no way resembles the photo posted here (golden brown crust). Does not rise nearly enough, but still tastes pretty good. Located another recipe similar to this, but suggested 7 eggs whites, 1tsp baking powder (not 1/2), and added 1/2 tsp. Xanthum Gum.

    I'm a bit upset.

    I used the "metric" measurements" for this and wasted my very expensive coconut flour.

    1/2 cup of coconut flour is about 82ml - not 125ml. This is ridiculous.

  34. Birgit
    Whoever decided to measure solid ingredients in ml, didn't take into account, that this kind of measurements is very unusual in some regions and additionally depends to a large extent on some properties that change with brand and time.
    Thereby stripped of the possibility to follow the recipe to the letter, I have to do a couple of tests to find out what works exactly.
    Finally, after considerable food waste, I succeeded with a variant of this coconut bread.
    for 1 bread pan of 32cm x 10cm x 8cm
    - 130g coconut flour
    - 212g coconut oil
    - 1 teaspoon ground salt
    - 2 bags of baking powder (1 bag for 500g white wheat flour)
    - 12 eggs
    - 100g butter
    - 30g psyllium husk powder

    mix coconut flour, baking powder and salt in food processor. Add eggs then add coconut oil.
    put a baking paper into the shape and pour the melted butter into it.
    Put the dough into the shape and distribute it evenly.
    put it into the oven and heat to 155°C. Bake for around 1 hour until surface is lightly brown.

    For the coconut flour bread is the nutritional value for the entire bread or per serving ?
  36. Fatty
    Has anyone tried making this with almond flour? I just came across the recipe and don't have any coconut flour.
  37. Helen
    I tried this recipe and I'm sorry but it was absolutely disgusting, came out as a block of egg, couldnt get the taste out of my mouth. Some of these recipes just are not palatable. sorry.

    It's gross. Does anybody even try these recipes before posting? Ughhhhhh!
  39. Faye
    Why did my bread turn grey?
  40. Marina
    Is this false advertisement? I was skeptical about ingredients in the first place to achieve the same bread in the picture. Interestingly enough, I ready other people's comments and whoever is answering them, specifically does not answer the most important one: Why is this bread nothing like the one on the picture? Ingredients are expensive and it will be nice to only give a good recipe to everyone.
  41. Amanda Alvarado
    You need to say how much /how many slices to eat on a ketogenic diet
  42. Louise R
    This bread is awful. The photo shows beautiful white bread. I should have known that with six eggs it couldn't be white. Flat, tastless, dry, bitter, a waste of resources. To whoever is thinking of trying this...don't!

    Followed this to the dot and its come out blue/green and just tastes like egg... disgusting!! Wont be doing this again... might want to double check everything!
  45. Tawny
    I just read all the comments... First of all, Marina is right! BAD recipe. If everyone's bread turned gray, it's not our fault (mine did, too). I thought something was wrong with my coconut flour or the eggs. Also, I just WASTED coconut flour and 6 of our chickens' eggs!!! I'm kinda mad right now. However, I am going to make it into French toast for dinner, so I will see how that tastes. AND, my husband does like it with cashew butter on it. I'm very surprised. WASTED CALORIES as far as I'm concerned. Post a real picture of a loaf of bread you just made, unless it loses the gray color later. I'll wait to see. Ha ha! Did you use only egg whites?? Please give the correct recipe for bread that looks like the picture. Also, we do need to know how many slices we can eat and how big. How big is the loaf pan supposed to be?? Jennifer asked "Baking Powder or Baking Soda?" You replied with, "I think Baking Soda is correct." WHAT??? Bad bad bad!!!!
  46. Maggie
    Miserable. Usually I read the reviews before I make something...but I think my excitement for keto “bread” got in the way. It’s not very often I spit out food in the trash and wash my mouth out after trying something new. This was one of those times! Bypass this recipe and look for another. Absolute waste of time and resources.
  47. Jason
    I just made the bread and found that if you let it cool completely then the egg flavor goes away. I also added a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring and a tablespoon of stevia as I was aiming for more of a shortcake flavor. It came out risen like a dense pound cake with a golden top however, the inside had a slight green tint to it but it does not affect the flavor.
  48. Evelyn
    Yeah mine turned green. And it tastes like I’m biting in a texturized omelet 😝

    Hi peter.how much is it important to get fasting insulin test done?do reply.thanks
  50. Shea
    Mine also came out green/blue, but it tasted great! I agree with Jason, that the eggy taste goes away after a while. When I had my super picky son taste it, he considered and said that it needed cheese. It actually sounded like a good idea. So my second batch is now in the oven with grated sharp cheddar mixed in and I'm pretty excited. I'll post again later with the results. :D
