Keto Coconut Bread
Keto coconut bread is a fantastic substitute to my regular keto bread that is nut free, gluten free and slightly lower in calories. The bread is fluffy, sliceable and totally delicious. Just make sure you keep some for yourself, because everyone will want a slice of the action.
I received such an overwhelming response to my last almond flour keto bread, that I decided to make a ketogenic bread that was nut free, for all those people who are allergic to nuts, gluten, and possibly even dairy.
I refined this recipe a little bit, by removing the extra coconut oil. Its not necessary when using coconut flour, because the butter and eggs combine better without the extra coconut oil. It toasts better as well.
This bread is by far my most favourite bread I’ve ever made. I’m so glad that I now have a nut free keto bread on offer, so that everyone is able to enjoy the convenience of bread, regardless of their allergies.
Making This Keto Coconut Bread Dairy Free
To make this keto coconut bread dairy free, all you have to do is substitute the butter with olive oil. I’ve tried this and it also works just as well. Coconut oil would also work, but i preferred switching with olive oil as it has a better taste (especially because you are already using coconut flour in the mix).
To make this recipe, I realised that when using coconut flour, there is a few key metrics that you have to watch out for.
4 Cups Almond Flour = 1 Cup Coconut Flour
2 Cups Almond Flour = 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
1 Cups Almond Flour = 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
Ratio 4 : 1 (This means that for every 1 cup of almond flour, use 1/4 cup coconut flour)
I’ve found this ratio to work well with almost every recipe. Coconut flour needs more moisture, because the flour is very absorbent. This is why i’ve kept the amount of eggs the same. The moisture from the eggs will absorb into the coconut flour, leaving a very nice texture without the eggy taste.
Coconut flour usually needs to rest to absorb moisture. Luckily with this bread, it is baked in the oven, so resting is not an issue for this recipe.
If you have any coconut flour question, don’t hesitate to comment below! I will attempt to answer as many questions as possible.
Aluminium Free Baking Soda
Please make sure that when you’re baking this recipe, that you use an aluminium free baking soda. When it cools, did you notice a green colour in the bread? Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s your baking powder. Baking soda with aluminum in it reacts to acidic ingredients like coconut, causing this greenish colour and what many people find to be a “tinny” or metallic taste. Fortunately, this is as easy to rectify as ditching your baking powder for an aluminum-free brand,
Where To Buy Xanthan Gum From?
Xanthan Gum can usually be found in your local supermarket either in the baking isle, or in the gluten free section.
