Coconut flour bread

I made coconut flour bread, the recipe is very easy and it only take a few minutes to make! First of all, I’m truly sorry about the quality of the picture. I was so hungry I just couldn’t be bothered to get my good camera and used my phone. Shame on me!

I’m a big fan of the low carb microwave bread. I’ve done many versions, the first one being the original flax meal version. I though that one was absolutely disgusting but it inspired me to try other ingredients but use the same method. So far this coconut flour bread is my favorite and I make it almost every day for lunch, different toppings though.






1 tbsp butter

1 egg

1 tsp coconut flour

1 tbsp flax meal (optional)

1/4 tsp baking powder



- Put the butter in a big microwave friendly cup and nuke it for a few seconds until it’s melted.

- Add the other ingredients to the cup and stir like crazy. I mean it, stir for a while until it all comes together, and then a little longer.

- Put the cup into the microwave and set it on high for 1-2 minutes. For the first couple of times just keep your eye on it and check on it when you think it’s done. It should come apart from the edges of the cup of you shake it a little bit but not be gooey in the middle. If you cook it for too long it´ll get dry. If it spills out of the cup, buy a bigger cup (or use a small bowl) :)

- Put the coconut flour bread onto a plate and cut it in half, immediately put your toppings on it because when it cools down it gets dry. I like it with butter, cheese and the Polaner sugar free preserves you can buy from netrition (if you can’t find them anywhere else). Anything goes really, it’s just like bread.



- Once you get the hang of it you can try changing up the ingredients and get creative. Add spices, use almond flour etc.



- For those of you with a little sweet tooth I can recommend adding a tbsp of heavy cream to the batter (might need a pinch more of coconut flour), splenda/other sweetener and some cinnamon. While it’s cooking, mix a little cream cheese, heavy cream and splenda in a bowl to make frosting. When the cupcake/bread is done, dump it into the bowl and enjoy. It sort of reminds me of carrot cake.

I hope you enjoy my coconut flour bread!

    Sounds lovely, have you any idea of many net carbs this recipe contains?

    I really liked the coconut bread! I did replace the butter with 1 tablespoon of nonfat Greek yogurt and it turned out great!

      Did you just Mic the Greek yogurt the same way as the butter?

    Omg~! I just started Keto and I have been having such a hard time making food for myself and also cook full meals for my 2 kids. I love it! Gonna surprise my husband tonight with it. I feel so satisfied and full after, too! Thanks so much! What a time saver!
    I tried stevia with cinnamon and I could totally play with the recipe! :D

    Tried this today and it was delicious. Added some dried onions to it to add a little more flavor. Posted a link to your recipe on my blog and added my toppings. Thanks!

    If I don’t use the flax meal (since it is optional and I don’t have any), do I need to use more than 1 teaspoon of coconut flour?

  • Lisa July 18, 2014, 1:29 pm

    I just made this…it was delicious! Instead of a spread, I used a little sugar free maple syrup… YUM!

    I have made it twice now. I don’t microwave it but cook in an oiled skillet and it turns out like a pancake with crusty edges. I really like it!

    Was looking for an easy recipe and just had two of these with grated Gouda cheese. These are divine and so filling. 1.5 minutes in microwave and was perfect. Love easy and delicious recipes. Thank you

    I don’t have a microwave. Any tips for using a regular oven to make this?

  • Brenda C. April 22, 2015, 7:42 pm

    I made it as instructed, including the flaxseed meal. I found it to have a strong eggy taste. Which I guess is okay for breakfast.

    • Marion October 16, 2015, 1:47 pm

      I also found to be more eggy than ‘bread-y’. Sliced it in half, added cheese and bacon and nuked again to melt and it was a good breakfast sandwich, but I’ll keep looking for coconut “bread” recipes.

    The fastest keto recipe for sure! I had my doubts will I saw the bread come clean off the bowl. I enjoyed it with some no-sugar-added peanut butter. Absolute heaven!
