A perfect go-to when craving high carb foods, simply pop in the toaster and spread with cream cheese or slice and make your favorite low carb sandwich.

So let make some gluten-free keto coconut flour bread.
How To Make Low Carb Coconut Flour Bread
I love to make easy keto recipes, and I’m sure you prefer the same. This recipe is simply nothing more than combining ingredients in a mixing bowl, then pouring into an 8.5 X 5-inch loaf tin and baking.
Of course, there are a few tweaks you can make to customize your low carb bread.
I am using butter in today’s recipe, but you can easily replace it with coconut oil or olive oil to make it dairy-free. I prefer butter to olive oil for the taste and, I find using coconut oil gives the bread an overpowering coconut taste since we are already using coconut flour.
I also like to use a tablespoon of erythritol to give it the bread a hint of sweetness but is optional.
Make sure to include the baking powder and xantham gum as if not the bread will not rise while baking and can sink when removing from the oven. Xantham gum will also improve the texture and make for a fluffier bread.
For those that are okay with adding xanthan gum, it does help with texture. The right amount is 1/2 tsp and you can add it to the dry ingredients.
Coconut flour requires more moisture since it is very absorbent. Therefore, if you are looking to substitute coconut flour for almond flour, you will require a larger quantity of almond flour. A good starting point is 1 cup of almond flour to 1/4 coconut flour.
If your keto bread turns out a greenish color, then do not worry, it’s perfectly safe to eat. It has to do with the baking powder and the chemical reaction while baking.
So start by preheating your oven to 180 C or 360 F.
Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and combine well.
Add the coconut flour, softened butter, salt, erythritol, xanthan gum, and baking powder to the wet mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.
The consistency should be very thick.
Line an 8.5 X 5-inch loaf tin with parchment paper and pour in the batter, making sure everything is even.
Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the bread.
Let the bread completely cool in the loaf pan to help its formation. Otherwise, it may fall apart when removing from pan or slicing.
