Coconut Bread Recipe?
0

7 posts in this topic

I have not been able to find my coconut bread in any of the city's shops, and need to make some of my own because that is the sole bread I am allowed to eat in my grain-free diet.

Anyone here has a recipe? I would like something with egg whites because I like the fluffiness they produce :) even non-sugar added muffins would do (I could use those as buns/rolls).

If you can do almonds, elanaspantry.com has a number of bread, cracker, and muffin/breakfast recipes based on almond meal and coconut flour. I think all of her recipes are paleo.

Edit to add: I haven't used this site as much, but the spunky coconut has a number of bread recipes as well, and I think they're grain free. She does often use things like tapioca along with nut and coconut flours.

Thank you! I cannot do tapioca and almonds... I'd looked through the spunky coconut's website, but I am really looking for a much plainer kind of bread :)

I once copied down a coconut bread recipe from a coconut site I visited. However, I have never gotten around yet to trying it. But I will put it below in case it may be of some help.

3/4 cup sifted coconut flour

1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil

6 eggs

2 tablespoons agave or honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder.

Blend together eggs, butter or coconut oil, agave or honey, and salt.

Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk thoroughly into batter until there are no lumps.

Pour into greased 9 by 5 by 3 inch or smaller loaf pan and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Remove from pan and cool on rack.

Thanks, I will keep in mind for when I make a sweeter bread.

For now I have been making loaves with 3/4 cups of coconut flour, 2 3/4 cups of egg whites (whipped - I add some cream of tartar and vinegar to stabliize them), 4 tsp of psyllium powder, a pinch of salt, a tbsp coconut or olive oil, and baking powder. I pour it into a narrow rectangular pan. It needs to bake for a pretty long time, 1.5 hours at 350 degrees (but I have an old oven, so it may be more). So far so good - it has a golden crust, nicely "broken" in the middle like some bakery breads, and an airy, white texture inside.

I love both the Spunky Coconut and Elana's Pantry websites! I have made Elana's "paleo bread" several times. It was pretty good, although it didn't rise that much. So I think way better with butter or peanut butter on it vs. making a sandwich. I can't seem to keep grapeseed oil around without it going rancid, so I subbed coconut oil. I also just got a cookbook called "Paleo Comfort Foods". They have a good recipe called "Basic bread loaf". I did add 1/4 c coconut oil to that recipe b/c it looked like it'd be a little dry without it. My very picky 4 year old ate it, so I'd call that a success!

I am glad you have come upon a workable coconut bread recipe for yourself. It is such a challenge when you have a lot of dietary restrictions. My body is also trying to kill me. I refer to my condition as the disease of a thousand tortures. :)

Kelleybean...my grapeseed oil says to use within 10 to 12 weeks of opening, or refrigerate. I do keep most of my variety of oils in the refrigerator. On a different but related note my daughter who worked in one of those body care product shops told me that the products which contained grapeseed oil were discontinued because of its going rancid.

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.  
    • Nothing left to eat
      I usually have sautéed yellow peppers, kale (or spinach) mushrooms as a base.  Then throw in some leftovers like baked sweet potato, or chicken chunks, add an egg and call it a breakfast!
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Lay's regular chips are gluten free.  You might have reacted to the super greasy chips or one of the other ingredients in them.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
