I have had a couple of people ask about the recipe for the coconut flour bread that I am eating these days so I thought I would post it today. I originally found the recipe at Life As A Plate . I just found this blog not long ago and I am ever so glad that I did! I have made several changes though and thought I would show you what I do. Actually, my daughter usually makes this for me I think I’ve only made it once.
Coconut Flour Bread
I didn’t change much from the original recipe but I needed it to be dairy free. I used to use real organic butter in the bread before I realized I needed to cut out dairy. It was SUPER yummy with real butter! Now, I am using Earth Balance dairy free/soy free butter. It’s good that way too. Anyway, here is the recipe my daughter makes for me:
3/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup flax meal
2 Tbs. arrowroot
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1/8 cup sesame seeds (I leave these out due to tummy)
7 eggs (you can get away with only 6 eggs)
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil (original recipe calls for 1/2 c.)
2 Tbs. full fat coconut milk (original recipe calls for sour cream)
Combine dry ingredients except 1 Tbs. sesame seeds if using.
Combine eggs and coconut milk (or sour cream) and beat into dry mix~then add butter or coconut oil.
Pour into greased loaf pan and sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbs. sesame seeds if using. I use a small loaf pan~not a regular size but not mini loaf either~not sure what size mine is exactly because I’ve never measured it
Bake @ 325 for 40 minutes. I always cover mine with foil after the first 15 minutes to keep top from burning but your oven may be different than mine.
Let cool in pan for a bit then take out of pan and cool the rest of the way on cooling rack. Slice and enjoy! A BIG thank you to Life As A Plate ~this bread has changed my life!
Okay, now I have a small confession to make. I ‘cheated’ on my ‘diet’ last night! I ate a couple of things I wasn’t supposed to! Cereal has always been one of my favorite foods and when I’m tired and don’t feel like making anything else, I WANT CEREAL!! Why am I telling you this? Because I don’t want people to think that I have it all together and I never cheat!! I am not always the best at doing what I’m told to do to better my health I WANT to stick to the ‘diet’ that has been prescribed for me, but sometimes, I’m weak and cave. Any tips you may have would be greatly appreciated!
Hope you enjoy the bread recipe and have a great weekend!
