Coconut Almond Bread

This amazing bread is perfect for anyone looking to reduce their amount of grains and carbs. I have been working with many people who are looking to balance their gut microflora and avoiding grains is an extremely important part of this process. This bread is also great for diabetics, with less than 1 net gram of carbohydrates (4 g carb, 3.8 of which are fiber). Each slice has 5.5 grams protein and 12 grams fat (from coconut and almond, so healthy fat)! So here is the final product, after many attempts in the kitchen!

In the picture, it is topped with Earth Balance soy-free "butter" (vegan and gluten free).

Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

·         1 cup coconut flour

·         1 cup almond flour

·         2 tbsp chia seeds

·         1 packet stevia (1 tsp)

·         2 tsp baking powder

·         dash of salt

Wet ingredients:

·         3/4 cup coconut milk (make sure it's unsweetened and from the box, not can)

·         5 tbsp coconut oil (in liquid form, so melt if not already liquid)

·         5 eggs

 

Directions:

Thoroughly mix dry ingredients together with a fork.  Add wet ingredients and mix until dough forms.

Transfer into loaf pan (either 8" or 9") and bake at 350 F for about 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. 

Allow to cool for about 20 minutes before cutting (it will crumble if still warm).

Top with almond butter or dairy free "butter" for a dairy free treat!
