Lord, I have been soooo busy lately and I haven’t even logged into my blog for almost a month? I have been working and working, cooking and cooking, trixing (made up that word just now lol) and fixing at home. Lots of things are happening and I’m feeling so content and happy.
So, I have been cooking a lot lately. Baking as well, as I need to practice how to bake with coconut flour. It is very hard, I actually forgot how hard it is. Anyhow, I made this lovely coconut bread for a couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t stop eating it. It was seriously the best bread I have ever had in my life, no jokes.
The best part is that, it is bloatfree hahaha (a new word my friend came up with and I thought it literally describes my food) and healthy.
The recipe I have taken is from Tiffany, the coconut mama. Like my internet food mama I would say. I love what she post and the content of it all. The basic recipe is hers (sorry) and I have added some more to it.
- 6 Organic Eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil, melted and cooled
- 1 Tablespoon Raw Honey (optional)
- 3/4 Cup Coconut Flour
- 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot Powder (optional, makes a lighter loaf)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Grain Free Baking Powder
I have added: vanilla and caramel extract, cinnamon powder, and sultanas. Mine additions are optional but they surely make it tastier.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Use a medium/large bowl, mix eggs, coconut oil and honey (if using).
- Mix until all the wet ingredients are combined.
- Add coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking powder and salt to the wet mixture and mix until the batter is lump free.
- Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes.
- Pour batter into a greased bread pan (I used a medium bread pan, 7 3/8″ x 3 5/8″ x 2″).
- Bake bread until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.
Let it cool down and eat it when ever you like. I actually ate the whole loaf, I had it for breakfast, in between snacks and gym snacks. Works really good as snacks, it fills you up but not too much. Just enough to wait for a proper meal.
This is a very simple recipe but as I always love to spicy things up, I have like I said added some extra stuff in the bread. You can make this bread without it and it will be more savory or you add the things I added and it give it all a very medium but nice sweetness.
Like I have previously mentioned, I have my own food instagram. Where I post literally everything about food, mainly my own making. Mykitchenbible on instagram is open, and please feel free to follow.
