Keto Coconut Bread
Keto coconut bread is a fantastic substitute for my regular keto bread but it is 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.

Recipe Notes

This recipe has been updated in March 2019.

*Please note* This recipe has been updated since first posting, and many people were confused about whether to use baking soda or baking powder. Please read below:

Aluminium-Free Baking Powder

Please make sure that when you’re baking this recipe, that you use aluminium-free baking powder.

The reason is that if you accidentally use too much regular baking powder, it can turn a green colour in the bottom section of the bread.

Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s your baking powder.

Baking powder with aluminium reacts to acidic ingredients like coconut, causing this greenish colour and what many people find to be a “tinny” or metallic taste.

Fortunately, this doesn’t make the bread harmful to eat, it just might look a little strange. It’s perfectly fine to eat.

Tips for Dairy Free Coconut Bread

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 works very well, although admittedly doesn’t taste quite as good as using butter.

Coconut oil would also work, but I prefer using olive oil as it has a better taste (especially because you are already using coconut flour in the mix).
