Recipe for Healthiest Bread with Coconut Flour – Gluten Free, Low GI


  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • Optional: Seeds (such as chia, sesame, or sunflower) for topping


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Grease a standard-sized loaf pan and line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, almond flour, ground flaxseed, baking soda, and salt. Ensure that there are no lumps.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, whisk the eggs.
    • Add melted coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and almond or coconut milk to the eggs. Mix until well combined.
  4. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
    • Stir until a thick, smooth batter forms. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid, so the batter will be thicker than traditional bread dough.
  5. Let the Batter Rest:
    • Allow the batter to rest for a few minutes to let the coconut flour absorb the liquid fully.
  6. Transfer to Loaf Pan:
    • Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
  7. Optional Seed Topping:
    • Sprinkle seeds of your choice on top of the batter for added texture.
  8. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Keep an eye on it, as coconut flour can brown quickly.
  9. Cool:
    • Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Slice and Enjoy:
    • Once cooled, slice the bread and enjoy! It’s great toasted or as a sandwich bread.
