Is coconut flour gluten-free?

Yes, coconut flour is naturally gluten-free. It is made from the leftover coconut pulp that has been defatted and dehydrated.

It is extremely low on net grams of carbs, is incredibly high in fibre and has a healthy omega 3:6 ratio which most of the nut flours do not.

Is coconut flour high in protein?

Coconut flour itself is not high in protein, however, the recipes that use coco require a high number of eggs so the resulting recipe will be high protein.

Is coconut flour expensive?

No, coconut flour is a cheaper alternative to expensive gluten-free flours and low-carb flours such as almond flour. You also only require a fraction of coconut flour when compared to a recipe that uses almond flour.

For example, my Fat Head pizza recipe requires 3/4 cup (85g) almond flour but if you wish to use coconut flour instead, it only requires 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons). So that is a huge cost saving.

Why is homemade coconut flour bread so versatile?

Coconut flour is an excellent natural flour for making healthy homemade bread. Coconut flour is low-carb and gluten-free; making it compatible with keto and other low-carb diets.

This bread is versatile and covers a variety of health restrictions. It is sturdy enough for the toaster and to be used for school lunchbox sandwiches.

Since there is no gluten in coconut flour the texture of the bread is a bit denser, similar to a slice of light banana bread, and it won’t rise as much as wheat bread so your slices will be smaller.

However, the bread is filling and perfect for eating healthy portions.

Expert cooking tips

There are two tips that are essential for making this bread. Without them, you may end up with a very heavy dense brick of bread.

And nobody wants that!

These tips may seem unimportant because they are so simple, but they are critical to making this healthy homemade bread.


The first tip is ACCURACY! You should either weigh your coconut flour (the gold standard of accuracy) or scoop the coconut flour into your measuring cup with a spoon instead of scooping the flour with your measuring cup.

This is important because when you scoop the flour with your measuring cup you are inadvertently compacting the flour and may accidentally use twice as much flour as needed.

Always whisk your egg whites

The second tip is to separate your egg yolks and whites so that you can whip the whites into stiff peaks.

This will take an extra five minutes or so, but it really makes a difference in the texture of the bread.

If you don’t have time to whip the egg whites that’s ok, but just understand that your bread will turn out denser than if you had.

How to make keto bread dough

To make your dough you will want to start by separating your egg yolks and whites into two bowls.

When your eggs are separated, mix your coconut flour, baking powder, butter, water, salt, and psyllium husk into the bowl that contains your egg YOLKS.

Set your dough aside while your whip the egg whites to allow the dough to thicken.

Use your hand blender/electric whisk to whip your egg whites into stiff peaks.

It will look a lot like whipped cream. When they are done you should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites sliding out. This will probably take you about 5-8 minutes.

Next, fold your egg whites into your dough until they completely disappear.

Your dough should have thickened a lot as it sat because the coconut flour and psyllium husk will absorb and swell with the liquids.

Psyllium husk can usually be found at the grocery store in the dietary supplement section, be sure to choose unflavored no sugar added psyllium husk.

Baking instructions

Now that your dough is done your bread is ready to bake. Preheat your oven to 180C/350F and line your bread pan with parchment paper.

Pour the dough into the bread pan and smooth out the top. I like to sprinkle a mixture of flax and chia seeds over the top of my bread but that is completely optional.

Bake the bread for 40-50 minutes in the oven or until the internal temperature is 77C/170F. When the bread is done be sure to let it cool completely before slicing.

What to serve on keto bread

This coconut flour bread surprisingly doesn’t taste like coconut which make this bread the perfect all-purpose low-carb bread.

You can toast a slice and serve it with almond butter on top.

It is strong enough to be used as sandwich bread.

I have also used it to make garlic cheese bread by adding butter, garlic, and cheese to the slices and then popping it into the oven to crisp.

The uses for this bread go as far as your imagination will go.

If you’re wanting bread for summer BBQ, you might like my Mediterranean focaccia bread. Stuffed with olives, feta, and sundried tomatoes.

To store your bread wrap it tightly in parchment paper and then place it in an airtight storage container or zipped storage bag. The bread should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer because there are no preservatives or additives (yay) and because it is egg heavy.

How to defrost

Your homemade bread will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer. I highly recommend reheating the bread in the toaster after removing it from the refrigerator or freezer.

That’s all!

An easy bread recipe with simple low-carb ingredients. If you don’t have psyllium husk, but still want to make this bread go ahead and leave it out.

The psyllium husk helps hold the bread together so that it is not crumbly. The recipe will still work without it, your bread will crumble a little easier though. Enjoy!

    You might want to update the recipe specification so it uses coconut flour and not specifies almond flour 😉

  2. I’m guessing that the ingredients in the recipe are incorrect, as it is calling for almond flour, but the title of the recipe says it is coconut flour. Correct?

  3. Ummmm if its supposed coconut flour bread where is the coconut flour in the recipe?? It says 75g of almond flour/meal. No coconut flour ?

  4. 4 stars
    This worked really well for my type 2 auntie who really dislikes almond flour always finding it gritty. Also the issue of lack of upper teeth past the canines. (Wrecked by dentist of the 70s who drilled and filled otherwise good teeth because they got paid per the filling ?) anyway finding low carb foods that are easy enough to eat, aren’t bitty and full of seeds, hasn’t an ingredients list as long as your arm and can help with fibre content. So breakfast is a challenge, Low carb Granolas are Great-if you can chew. But this was an easy winner that we have been desperately searching for and really liked the sheet pancakes too??????

    Can this be made in bread machine?

    Fabulous recipe! Great for sandwiches and toasties! I add some onion and garlic powder and a touch of turmeric and extra salt for a savoury taste. And scatter it with pumpkin seeds, sometimes in the loaf as well. My favourite bread recipe. Love that there’s no almond flour in it (I can easy eat too much almond flour with gf baking). I also make bread rolls with it. It tastes coconutty, which I like, but definitely not eggy to me – but I do add extra salt etc which possibly helps. Highly recommend trying it – I also highly rate the 3 seed bread – love it too.

  7. can i omit psyllium husk ?what can i substitute instead?

    Hi, lovely recipe, do you mind mentioning the butter in grams or generic use those recipe tables that also allow to convert the quantities in metric for your European fans 🙂

    It would be much appreciated ❤️

    My coconut bread didnt come out like yrs 🙁

      Absolutely I can, great suggestions Leonie. Thank you. I’ve amended and improved the recipe to state 115 g (1 stick) butter.

    Hi! Can I replace the butter for coconut oil? And the psyllium husk , power or whole?

    1. 5 stars
      Yes, you can use butter, that would make a delicious almond flour bread for sure. I use psyllium powder. You can use either, just remember to weigh so you get the correct amount that is required.

    When is the butter added? And Melted?

      When your eggs are separated, mix your coconut flour, baking powder, butter, water, salt, and psyllium husk into the bowl that contains your egg YOLKS.

    Hi, I am about to make this bread but it states 125ml of water but its not down in the instructions. I’m going to add it anyway but could you verify when you get chance please.

    Thank you

      Hi Angela, thank you for your question. I have taken the opportunity to clarify when the water is added. It is added with all the dry ingredients to the egg yolks, water, and butter. I hope your coconut flour bread turned out well and it was delicious toasted with butter.

  13. 5 stars
    Would it work to replace one or two eggs with chia seed gel? Two teaspoons of chia seeds in 60ml of water for each egg substituted and leave for a few minutes to gel before adding to mix. (Six eggs seems a lot).

    1. 5 stars
      I’m afraid I have never tested it with chia seed “eggs” so I cannot honestly give you a true recommendation. The eggs make the coconut flour bread light and the eggs give the bread the structure and protein a low-carb bread requires.

    I bake this all the time, and my family loves every crumb! I follow it exactly. I entered it in a baking competition and it won a prize in the savoury section! I have recommended it to many others!! It is simply fantastic!

    I’m craving toasted tea bread, so am going to try this with 1 tablespoon of mixed spice and 75g of erythritol. Yummy!

  16. Hi! Do you let the bread cool inside the loaf pan, or remove it from the loaf pan after taking it out of the oven?

    1. Hi Amy, I usually let it cool in the pan. But I use a glass bread pan that cools quickly. If you are using a pan that retains the heat I would let it cool for a few minutes in the pan and then remove it and let it finish cooling outside of the pan. Thanks!

  17. Could oat fiber replace the psyllium? Would the amount be the same?
