  • ¾ cup 175 ml (100 g) coconut flour
  • 13 cup 75 ml (50 g) sesame seeds
  • ½ cup 125 ml (100 g) flaxseed
  • ¼ cup 60 ml (30 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • 3 tsp 3 tsp (15 g) baking powder

  • ¾ cup 175 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (10 g) poppy seeds or sesame seeds, for topping

Instructions

Instructions are for 20 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Mix all dry ingredients, except the seeds for the topping, in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk all remaining ingredients until smooth.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix thoroughly. Place the dough in a greased bread pan, about 4 x 7 inches (non-stick or use parchment paper). Sprinkle the top with the seeds.
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes on the lower rack in the oven. Prick the bread with a knife to see if it's ready, it should come out clean. Take it out of the oven and remove the bread from the form.
  6. Remove the parchment paper and let the loaf cool on a rack. If the loaf is allowed to cool in the form the crust will be soggy.
  7. Serve it freshly baked with your favorite toppings.

Serving suggestions

This bread is great for toasting and can also be used to make your favorite sandwiches. Fill it with bacon, lettuce and tomato for an awesome BLT or serve it as a side to your favorite low-carb or keto soup.

Storing the bread

This bread needs to be stored in the fridge or in the freezer. When stored in the fridge it keeps up to 5 days. If you want to store it in the freezer we suggest slicing it before doing so. Place a bit of parchment paper between each slice to make single servings easier. Thaw the bread in the fridge or in room temperature and then toast it for best flavor.

    Instead of flaxseed, are chia seeds a good alternative? Loaf looks great!

    We have not tested this recipe with chia instead of flax.

    I'm sorry, I am not aware of a good substitute for cream cheese. Sometimes coconut cream can work well in place of heavy cream.

    Can I use ground flax and sesame seeds? My husband can't stomach whole seeds at all due to Divertikulitis.

    Many people with diverticulitis find that it's best to avoid seeds of any kind to help prevent flare ups. Ground seeds should work well in this though.

    This was absolutely amazing!! Mine turned out exactly like your picture and it was probably the best tasting bread I've ever had! Thank you!

    When storing this bread in the fridge, should I put it in an airtight container or leave it open a bit to get airflow?

    If it's cooled all the way, an airtight container may work better so the bread doesn't dry out.

    I don’t like the taste of coconut, does the taste come through much from the flour? I’ve tried some of the simpler bread recipes with coconut flour and hated them, too coconutty. This gets so many great reviews, but unsure if I’ll like it or if I will end up binning it. Thanks

    Hi. I made it yesterday and I loved it, however I enter all the ingredients in the Carb Manager app and with 20 servings comes to 5 g of NET carbs. That's 3 more carbs per slice than indicated in your recipe. I've double ckecked the amounts of the ingredients and I put them correctly. Who's wrong?

    Different brands of almond and coconut flour can have different amounts of fiber, resulting in lower or higher carbs. There is a hoverable note above the coconut flour in the ingredient list with the brand that we use.
