I have a large bag of coconut flour in my refrigerator that I've only used a couple tablespoons from. I'm not sure why I got something so big since you really only use a little coconut flour even in recipes that are only made with coconut flour. #liveandlearn
Whatever the reason, I needed to find some recipes that would use it up. And I was so amazed by the recipes I found that I thought I would share them with you. I didn't know how many beautiful breads could be made with just coconut flour and a few other real food ingredients. There are sandwich breads, zucchini and banana breads, and even flatbreads to use for wrapping all kinds of ingredients.
While our family doesn't have to eat gluten free and I'm not doing any particular low carb diet, (this is my weight loss philosophy, which did more than any fad diets ever did...) I do like to eat lower carb in general. And I do like to switch things up every now and then. I think our bodies are made for variety and different real, whole foods is a way we can get all the nutrients that the various ingredients have.
I did have a few criteria in searching for bread recipes with coconut flour. The fourteen recipes below all fit into these loose parameters:
- Made mainly with coconut flour (vs. almond flour blends).
- Easy-to-make with minimal ingredients.
- No hard-to-find ingredients.
- All real food (no fake sugars, xantham gum, etc.).
These all seem like recipes that would be perfect for both the seasoned coconut flour baker as well as those just figuring out how to bake with this flour (um, me!). I was really impressed with them and can't wait to make some!
