Simple Coconut Bread

I was in search for a bread that I could have a slice of pre-work out while on my 21-Day Sugar Detox, below is what I came up with.

I must tell you all though, that I believe I have a sensitivity to too much coconut flour! Not to worry, I will still be using coconut based products in my recipes though will need to tone it down on the flour. Coconut flour is actually the fiber from the meat, containing 11 grams of dietary fiber in 2 tablespoons! Whereas the coconut milk with no other additives (typically found canned) has zero fiber and tons of healthy fat. 

That being said, I know many people in the paleo and primal community as well as those that are gluten-free and bake with coconut flour and so far, my sister and I are the only ones that I know of that have expereinced this problem. I'm a little perplexed with myself as to how this didn't dawn on me before. Sometimes, it just takes about 100 times for something to happen before I accept it as true ;)

So, try out the bread. It really did come out nice. It was a tad dry but it is sugar-free. If you are not on a sugar-free diet then add some fruit, honey or maple syrup to moisten it up. Alternatively, you could add a natural spread after.





Here we go...

Simple Coconut Bread

6 eggs, organic, cage-free
1 tbls lemon juice
3/4 coconut flour
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 tbls coconut flakes

Method:

Whisk the eggs and lemon juice together. Add in the coconut flour and grapeseed oil. Stir well until all the ingredients are combined and the batter is smooth. Fold in the coconut flakes.

Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes. Cover and bake for another 7 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.




Give it a try and as always, let me know what you think.

Enjoy ;)
