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.

hello, new guy here. I have very little baking experience under my belt, so Imagine my delight when I bit into my first slice and reached nirvana. Ok maybe a little bit of an exaggeration, but not much. the bread is moist and chewy, a bit eggy but I love eggs so no problemo there. I've been on a keto diet for about 2 months now with great success, but lately have been craving bread, even knowing now that wheat, and I, don't get along at all. I want to thank you for the effort that you put out here and now I'm going to go eat my third slice hahaha. take care, Chip.
Glad you like the bread. My favourite is my olive bread..try it and let me know your thoughts!
Can you sub the apple cider vinegar with anything else? Allergic to apples.
Would white vinegar or pehaps lemon juice work for you?
Simply love the coconut flour bread...Simply delicious!!! I used a cup of sugar instead. I have celiac and this bread is yum, yum!!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes!!!
Delighted you enjoyed it!
I love love love this recipe. I made it for the first time following the measurements to the T and it turned out just awesome! Super delicious, this is my new bread for life. I just started on the keto diet two days back and I am never going back to wheat or all purpose flour again. Not only is this delicious it is also super filling. I could barely eat two slices and it was a meal in itself. Thank you so so so much!
Happy you enjoy this! I must bake this again myself!
Brilliant result tastes lovely but a bit worried about the calories per slice , is it actually 297 per slice .
I want to try out your recipe tonight but my oven is on the fritz 🙁
Do you think this can be made in a bread machine?
It's worth a try as I believe a lot of low carb breads can happily be made in a bread machine.
Hi, can I use honey instead of sugar substitute?
im making it now, and i can't use eggs and flax. i used gelatin 24 tbls spoon , as of 3 tbls equals 1 egg. instead of baking soda i added more apple cider vineager and first time when i made it , i used yolks only and i had to throw it away , nothing came out ok. let me see how it will come out now.
Loved it just got done making it with CRUSH almond .ty
Thanks so much for this recipe!!! I have gone gluten, dairy & wheat free and was missing my bread soooo much!!!
I just use the xovonut oil instead of the butter... and bingo!
Bad typing... I meant coconut oil!
I do it all the time! Good substitute too!
Made this tonight and found that my batter was thick, and my bread tasted "very eggy", is that normal? It is great consistency and would be great with a little adjustments.
Hi, it can be slightly eggy but perhaps use it to make French toast? A less eggy tasting bread would be my Keto & Paleo breads as they have psyllium husk powder in them. Happy baking!
I made this recipe and it was delicious! So filling too! Thank you 🙂
Yah! Glad you enjoyed it!
Should I use dark or golden flaxseed? Can I use coconut oil or any other oil instead of butter? Is sugar substitute necessary?
The flaxseed is up to you. I prefer golden. You could use coconut oil and try it without the sweetener
I am confused by the directions - when do you add the melted butter mixture to the batter? after or before the water? It doesn't say.
With the water. You can add it first, then add the water if you want.
Yummy this sounds really good. Never tried this before, thanks for sharing this..
Can you give us the dimension of a 1 lb tin?
Hi, 15cm (6") long, 9cm (3.5") wide and 7cm (2.8" high)
This bread is sooooo goooood! 297 calories for one slice though? Is that correct?
That's what my online calculator says...
This is as per the database I use
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!
Hi Susan, adding to the eggs is just right! So glad you enjoy the bread and thanks for popping by!
Do you have the nutrietion value for this bread? My daughter is making it today, but would like to know what I am getting regarding calories and carbs. Thanks
Hi, I've added the nutritional table at the end of the recipe. Enjoy!
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!
Is baking soda bicarb?
Yes it is Libby.
Definitely give this a go, sounds good
I just got done making that WONDERFUL moist coconut Almond bread and I grind up almonds and put them on top of the mix and baked the bread.it is so good and thick also it RISE just like a loaf of bread. Ty kindly. GINNY
