Coconut Bread Recipe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
