Coconut Bread Recipe?

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.

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
