This cheese jalapeno bread is a moist bread made with Cheddar Cheese and coconut flour. It's a great low carb and gluten free bread.
Sometimes when you are munching a low carb delight such as this cheese jalapeno bread you look back on the old days and do not feel a loss. A recipe that very much like a cheesy pull apart bread but in squares. It was hard not to eat the whole batch in one go. Except that it's very filling as most coconut flour breads are. So I had to pace myself.
I had been thinking about making a cheese jalapeno muffin with one of my coconut flour recipes but then thought about making a bread instead. A baking dish the same size of a brownie tin was used as I thought that cutting it into squares would make a change. You could use this mixture in a muffin tin though. As it's so moist I don't think that a bread tin would work though.
Cheese Jalapeno Deliciousness
The leftover pieces were stored in the fridge (I know, shocking there were any leftover!) and we had them the next day, sliced and toasted with some eggs on top. Breakfast heaven! Actually, as I type I think that this would be a great bread to serve for a brunch too.

My gluten free son loves this bread. Can you freeze it?
Delighted to hear it's enjoyed! I've not tried freezing it but think it should be okay to freeze.
Could I cut up already sliced jalapeños from a jar I bought at the grocery store?
Absolutely! I would think they would add to the flavour too!
Love this bread. It was so tasty. I did use a little more cheddar cheese in the bread. It didn't need water added. Thank you for this yummy recipe.
Delighted you enjoyed it!
Size of “brownie pan”? My family favourite brownie pan is 9x13”.
I like that there are not a lot of strange additives in this recipe and willing to give it a go. A great Focaccia bread substitute would be wonderful.
I used a square 8 x 8 pan. Great idea for the foccacia substitute!
In the instructions you say add water. There is no water in the ingredient list. Its in the oven. Hope it comes out right.
It's optional and depends on the mixture. Coconut flour and eggs can vary and sometimes a bit of water is needed.
