Coconut Flour Bread

Best grain and nut free bread recipe

Here’s a bread recipe that’s nut-free and grain-free!

Bread is a huge part of our food culture. Some form of bread is included in nearly all restaurant and home cooked meals. We grew up eating bread, and we give our kids bread. Bread is part of who we are.

So what do you do when you figure out that grains (bread) doesn’t belong in a truly healthy diet? Throw out your bread box and be done with it?

Well, that approach would work, but I’d rather adapt my bread recipes by using real food ingredients and leaving the grains out. This way there’s still a slice of something warm and soft to be eaten with dinner, and I can still make French Toast on the weekends.

Most grain-free bread recipes use almond flour — like my almond bread recipe — but with this one I’ve gone nut-free. It’s a little lighter than the almond bread, and just as tasty.

Go on, enjoy a slice of bread. You know you want to.

    Did you use the dough blade or the metal blade in the food processor to make this coconut flour loaf of bread?

    • Diana January 4, 2014 at 7:36 pm

      Hi Alejandra,
      I use the metal blade.

    What size loaf pan does this recipe use?

    • Diana February 6, 2014 at 6:16 pm

      Hi Jen,
      Use an 8×4 loaf pan. Enjoy!

    Hi. Can I use natural applesauce in place of the oil?

    • Diana March 14, 2014 at 4:21 pm

      Hi Liz,
      You could try to use applesauce instead of the oil. The consistency would be more cake-like. Let me know how it turns out!

    what can you use instead of eggs? vegan version?

    • Diana March 26, 2014 at 8:23 pm

      Hi Maria,
      A great vegan sub for one egg is to whisk 1 Tablespoon of flax meal with 3 Tablespoons of water. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken before adding to your dough. Enjoy!

    are the number of carbs per serving actual total carbs or net carbs?

    • Diana December 10, 2014 at 5:19 pm

      Hi Jill,

      It’s total carbs!

    Can you sub reg vinegar for apple cider, and finely crushed almonds for flax?

    • Diana December 18, 2014 at 8:01 pm

      Hi Jill,

      You can substitute regular vinegar for apple cider vinegar but you cannot substitute crushed almonds for flax. Instead use milled chia seeds. Happy Holidays and Happy Cooking!

    I made this bread today and it has that real salty weird taste that the baking soda leaves 🙁

    I just made this and the bread didn’t rise! It’s only about 3″ tall? What did I do wrong? I used the 8×4 loaf pan. Any suggestions?

    • Diana September 14, 2016 at 7:06 pm

      Hi Linda,

      You could always whip the egg whites to get the bread to stand taller. Keep in mind that grain free bread is always going to be more dense and rise less than traditional bread.

      Happy cooking! 🙂

    Is the coconut oil melted

    • Diana November 1, 2016 at 6:26 pm

      Hi Sherry,

      Yes, unless noted I measure all coconut oil melted. Enjoy!
