Video/Recipe: Coconut Flour Bread

The challenges of a gluten-free, grain-free, starch-free diet are many. And one of the first considerations that people need in order to feel that they can actually “do” the diet is to have an acceptable bread replacement. Children and adults alike, crave bread. These are the people that most need to eliminate it from their diet. Unfortunately, our culture is heavily grain/bread/starch based. And this is what gets some people in trouble in the first place. They eat too many carbohydrates that are difficult to digest.

Not only are more and more children having problems with a grain based diet, but more adults are as well. Adult onset celiac disease is on the rise and is expressed with many different and seemingly unrelated symptoms, not only digestive distress. Not only is celiac disease on the rise, but in even greater  numbers, the cases of gluten intolerance are finally being recognized by researchers.

Grains have become a food staple only in the last 10,000 years. That may sound like a lot of time, but in evolutionary terms it is just a drop in the bucket. Our digestive tracts are actually geared for the “primal” diet of hunters and gatherers. And when agriculture of grains became more prevalent, these cultures developed a way of preparing them so that they were digestible to humans. Traditional methods of preparing grains require them to be soaked, fermented and/or sprouted before being ground into flour and then baked into bread.

Our modern commercial corporations have no interest in making their products more digestible. They are interested in making their products taste and look good without any concern as to whether or not they actually provide any available nutrition. Consequently, there are no grain based products on the conventional market today (with the rare exception of a few traditional bakers or farmers) that are considered acceptable by the Weston Price Foundation. None are properly prepared by soaking, fermenting and/or sprouting and so they are difficult to digest. Anyone with a compromised digestive system may develop problems if their diet is high in these products. Is it any wonder that adult onset celiac disease and gluten intolerance are rapidly on the rise?

Here we have a recipe for a simple, delicious, wholesome and fully nutritious bread that will satisfy the need for a “carbohydrate” type food. This is an excellent and completely balanced food, as it has plenty of protein from the eggs, plenty of fat from the coconut flour and oil (or butter/ ghee) and plenty of fiber from the coconut flour. Who could ask for more?

Coconut Flour Bread

Ingredients

  • 4 whole eggs (pastured if possible)
  • 3 eggs separated
  • 4 – 5 Tablespoons butter, ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 Tablespoons applesauce (preferable organic and homemade)

Equipment

Instructions

  1. Using a hand held electric beater, beat the whites until they are somewhat stiff.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the 4 whole eggs with the 3 egg yolks, honey, oil and applesauce and mix together. The applesauce is not entirely necessary, but I find that adding it really adds moisture and a good flavor to the bread.
  3. Add the coconut flour,  salt and  baking soda and mix together. If you are following GAPS you may omit the baking soda (and the honey). After mixing, the batter should be somewhat stiff.
  4. Pour the mix into a mixing bowl and fold in the egg whites. You do not necessarily have to separate the eggs, but I find that it is fluffier and lighter if you do separate them. If you are in a hurry you can simply leave the eggs whole. However it doesn’t take very long to beat up 3 egg whites and for me, the difference is worth it.   Try not to leave big clumps of whites, get them folded in well.
  5. Now, pour the batter into a well oiled loaf pan. I also line the bottom with parchment paper that is oiled.
  6. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. (Set a convection oven at 350 and it will run at 325. That is fine).
  7. After 30 minutes check it. It will look very browned but will not be ready inside. Cover the pan with foil or a small piece of parchment paper for another 10 minutes. The parchment paper will help it cook inside without getting too brown on the outside. Just be aware that parchment paper can catch fire if it touches the heat source inside the stove, so be careful if you do this.
  8. When finished, cool on a rack. Let cool completely before slicing, then wrap in wax paper and refrigerate.

To save time, you can make two loaves at once and have one to freeze. It is perfectly fine to freeze baked goods with coconut flour.

Hi June,
I’m not too sure about all the rules for passover, but it certainly is unleavened bread.

Baking soda counts as leavening, so unless you leave that out, it is not unleavened bread. But it does look delicious. Looking forward to trying it out!

I am anxious to try this. In the video it seemed you said you were using baking powder (you specifically mentioned Bob’s Red Mill nonaluminum) but the recipe calls for baking soda. Can you clarify. Thanks so much.

Hi Tina,
Thanks for pointing that out to me! It is baking soda. On SCD/GAPS we do not use baking powder. I’ll have to figure out a way to correct that…Bob’s also has a non aluminum baking soda.

Thanks for hosting Slightly Indulgent Tuesday. I truly apologize for not linking back — actually I spent about 20 minutes (in the early AM) trying to link — but my visual editor has been giving me a problem on certain posts. It intermittently flips into HTML. I do not know HTML and so I can’t link back until my tech person (my son who is in school) gets home and will fix it for me. Sorry again please be patient with me until I resolve this ongoing problem!

Hi Jill, you are so right about the symptoms of adult gluten intolerance and Celiac seeming to be unrelated. I had been going along just fine and then all of a sudden suffered severe heart burn when I would eat anything with gluten. I even did a trial for a month of eating gluten free and found out it was indeed a trigger along with raw onions and heavy tomato sauce. I am currently undergoing homeopathic treatment to see if it will make a difference, but I certainly love to use gluten free recipes now a days! Homemade bread has definitely been a challenge for me, so I would love to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing this on the hearth and soul hop! All the best, Alex

19 Jill March 16, 2011 at 5:51 pm

Hi Alex,
Thanks for the comment. It is more and more common for adults to develop a gluten intolerance or sensitivity. It will not show up on the celiac blood panel, but it certainly can give all kinds of different symptoms, as you have discovered. I suspect it is a function of the improperly prepared grains that are in all the commercial foods. After years of poor digestion, some people will develop symptoms. I am enjoying your blog!

My daughter is a Celiac and we have not seen a coconut flour bread yet. Thanks for sharing it. I will try it. I understand that 30% of Americans are gluten intolerant….but don’t know it. I haven’t quite made the break myself…..and I am sure I need to. We have been slowly turning our recipes over to gluten free at our family gatherings. My daughter was 31 before she found out and already had a lot of damage.

Reply

27 Jill March 17, 2011 at 11:42 am

Hi Susan,
Some people need to get ALL the starches out of their diet in order to heal. The SCD and/or GAPS diet (I have pages about this on my site), are really good for that purpose. Other celiacs seem to do OK with just taking the gluten out, but many gluten-free products are full of other additives. I much prefer to make my own from a healthy flour like coconut flour, hence the recipe.

That’s a good description of the situation we’re facing with so much dependence on a grain-based diet. This bread looks a great way to work on counteracting that dependence. I’m new to using coconut flour — been more focused on finding gluten-free things that my non-celiac family likes. I do want to learn more about cutting back on grains in general, though, so they’re not just substituting one questionable flour for another.

Reply

37 Jill March 18, 2011 at 9:54 am

Hi Pat,
I visited your site and love it! It’s so important to understand that so many people are gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive…the problems with gluten are much more widespread than the only population that has been formally diagnosed with celiac. I really feel that a lot of the problem is with the fact that all of the commercially made grain products are improperly prepared — not soaked, sprouted or fermented. Even the other, non gluten grains need this proper preparation and it is not done for the gluten-free products. My solution is to not eat any grains or starches, per the SCD or GAPS diet — ( more info on that at my site) and to use other flours such as the coconut flour. I will be posting many more videos using the coconut flour. Thanks for stopping by!

I followed the recipe pretty much exactly.  The dough was very paste-y (like kindergarten paste) so I added a few T’s of coconut milk.  It got softer so I stopped there.  Didn’t want it to collapse.  The end result was very dry and grainy.  Also, I didn’t have a glass pan, so the bottom 1/4 of the loaf turned grayish looking.  The taste is very cardboard-y. 

I usually love things made with coconut flour.  I have an awesome pound cake recipe. 

Can you give me some suggestions at moistening it without causing the batter to fall and also not get too sweet?

Thanks so much!

Reply

53 Jill September 14, 2011 at 11:00 pm

Hmmm. It sounds like too much coconut flour. Maybe your eggs were too small. I usually use large eggs. Coconut flour will sop up all the liquid.

Did you use the applesauce? That helps to keep it moist. Using the coconut milk would also be a good thing in stead of apple sauce.

Maybe your stove runs a little hot? Try it at 325 degrees. There usually is a “crust” that is browned around the bottom and sides. Hope this helps!

Reply

54 Cmlands September 15, 2011 at 2:05 am

thanks for the quick reply and the tips.  Yes I did use applesauce–i didn’t think about adding more of that; it would’ve helped probably. 

My eggs are from our own chickens, so I’m not good at gauging size anymore.  But now that you mention it, they’re probably around about med to med/lg.    So add another egg?

I have convection so I set it for 350 conv. bake.  I did go out and buy a 4×8 glass loaf pan, so that should help with uniformity of baking.  I used an aluminum or lt wt steel loaf pan because it was the smallest I had, and it’s just so thin.  I prefer my crockery pans, but they’re too large so the bread would’ve been one large brick-shaped pancake.

I’ll persevere with those changes.  I’m determined!

Oh, and I should mention, I LOOOOOOOVE your accent!  :-)  I’m a transplanted Jerseyite, who lived in Long Island for 5 yrs and we have lived in TN for 6 yrs.  So it’s a little like being “home” when I hear talking from the “old country”!

And great video too.

55 Jill September 15, 2011 at 12:30 pm

LOL, when I hear myself on the videos I realize that you take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can never take the Brooklyn out of the girl!

Just be careful not to put too much applesauce  — it will make it too soft. And also, did you separate the egg whites? When the batter is done without the whites, it will be sticky and somewhat firm — after you add in the whites, that will make the batter looser. It should be thick but pourable.

The pan I use is 8.5 x 4.5 and if you google metal vs.glass here is what I found:
“Usually when metal pans and glass dishes are compared it is suggested to
use a lower temperature, usually 25 degrees, with glass so that the top
will brown before the bottom
burns.”

Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes!

Reply

56 Cmlands September 16, 2011 at 2:20 am

thanks again.  I didi separate the egg whites.  I will definitely lower the temp.  I think I needed to with the metal pan as it was.

Even after the egg whites, while it was smoother, it was still scoopable (think ice cream scoop)!

I’ll not be defeated–I’ll post the next results.  :-)

Hi Monifah,
I store this bread in the refrigerator wrapped in wax paper and then in a container. I freeze the extra loaf if I make two. It takes a few hours to defrost once taken out of the refrigerator. I keep it in the refrigerator up to 10 days and it is fine. I do not pre-slice it. Hope this helps!

Are you separating all the eggs? In the ingredients, you say 4 whole eggs and 3 separated. In the instructions you say “combine all 7 egg yolks…” A bit confusing.

Hi Mare,
It’s 3 eggs separated. Combine the 3 yolks and the 4 whole eggs keeping the 3 whites separated.

76 Zanne November 15, 2012 at 10:09 am

If you are going for starch free you must skip the applesauce. Apples contain a lot of starch if they are “crisp” and at least some starch until they are mush – at which point they are finally all sugar. The only way to know for sure is to test with iodine.

If you are making this bread for someone who is starch intolerant rather than gluten intolerant, you have to skip this or you will put them in agony.

FYI – this is true of all fruit with the exception of citrus fruit.

Hi!
I’m new to your blog and just found your coconut bread recipe as I was searching for grain-free stuffing! :) We can’t have any fruit at our house, and this will be my first time making coconut bread – any suggestions, as I would be skipping the honey too?

Thanks much!

Reply

78 Jill November 19, 2012 at 8:55 pm

HI ma,
You would need something to moisten the batter — so try adding at least 1/4 cup coconut milk or equivalent — watch the batter and if still too thick add another 1/4 cup. Or add 1 or 2 more whole eggs.

@Allie,
It will never rise the way a yeast bread does. Separating the eggs and whipping the whites helps.

Can you use a silcone baking loaf pan?

Have you found a difference in taste or performance when cooking with coconut flour from Bob’s and Tropical Traditions. I am new to coconut flour and need some guidance of what to buy!

Hi Sarah,
I’ve been pleased with both. I buy in bulk from Tropical Traditions. Here’s the link:

In the event the solution was “out on the money”, the particular dealer will no longer has the to obtain or even promote of which
advantage. This particular helps ensure the particular investor
some sort of payment the second which the solution expires, and also basically eliminates this likelihood of your night trading
binary options agent having the ability to be unfaithful his / her consumers after the deal is actually finish.

I followed the recipe exactly as written but it seems like your dough came out much soupier then mine? Any idea how to fix that? More oil?

I guess I’ll have to wait and see if it comes out alright.

Hi Ken,’
Maybe your eggs were small? It’s going to come out dry so maybe don’t bake as long — check it after 30 minutes. Let me know how it goes!

Wow this bread looks amazing! As someone who is anaphylactic to yeast, as well as celiacs, on top of diabetes and can’t have dairy either, this is almost perfect! I do have to try and lower the fat in my meals due to my dodgy pancreas and was wondering if you could replace some of – or all- of the eggs and egg yolks with plain egg whites and still have the bread turn out? The height of my culinary creations at the moment are microwave egg white omelettes, so my baking knowledge is sorely lacking! Haha!

HI Rory-Mae,
You could try it — I have not done that so I wouldn’t know.
