Coconut and Almond Bread

gluten free bread

Together, coconut and almond flour produce a delicious low carb and gluten free bread.  I’ve added flaxseed in for good measure and to make it more like a wholemeal loaf.

This is the best low carb and gluten free bread so far!  I found this recipe  and tweaked it a bit with flaxseed but oh my…the best alternative to bread so far!  We enjoy it toasted and as it is so dense in nuts and fibre you only need a couple of slices toasted to keep you going for hours.  This is like a nice wholemeal bread and just so tasty!

I love this gluten free bread as it has two of my favourites, almond flour and coconut flour…add my other favourite, flaxseed and you have a high fibre, low carb, gluten free piece of bread!   The best thing about alternative bread recipes to the gluten laden ones sold in supermarkets, is that this is a simple bread to make.  No kneading, no waiting to rise..just mix, bake and eat!  Keep this in the fridge though..it will keep about 3-4 days.

    Is the apple cider vinegar necessary or can another vinegar be substituted? I used white vinegar and doubled the recipe, but my loaves are not as moist.

      I’m not too sure to be honest but I cannot see why white vinegar would not work as the vinegar in baking is used to combine with the baking soda and start the chemical reaction needed to produce carbon dioxide and give those batters a lift as they bake.

    Is the nutrition info correct? That’s a lot of carbs for being low carb.

      I know it’s awfully late to post to romaida, but if she’s out there… Concerning the ‘carb count’ the nutrition facts are for the ENTIRE loaf, not just one slice. One slice has roughly 6 net carbs (carbs minus fiber) so eat up!

    Just made this today and it’s delicious. When should the butter, honey, and vinegar be added? I went ahead and put it in with the eggs and whisked before adding to the dry ingredients. Since the bread turned out well, I guess that was OK. Thanks for this nutritious bread recipe!

    Hey there! Recently found out that I am wheat intolerant, and so, trying out some new recipes, because bread is my favourite food!!! Are there any alternatives to using coconut flour? Could I use almond flour instead? And also, would it be wise to mix all the ingredients in a food processor? Or is that too much? I know it doesn’t need kneading, but I thought I would ask, because it might save me time, and mess! Gonna give these a go today! Following the recipe exactly. Wish me luck!

      Hi there! Thanks for popping by and I hope the recipe turned out okay. You must try my favourite bread roll recipe too…it’s very much like the real thing and high in fibre too! Almond flour can often be substituted for coconut flour but you would need about 1/2 cup more, since coconut flour is used in smaller quantities, and also adjust any liquid. When cooking with coconut flour you use more liquid as it soaks it up like a sponge! You can use a food processor but don’t over work the mixture. Good luck and happy eating!
