Coconut Flour Bread (lots of eggs!)
I had been using the almond butter bread recipe, but I found it too dense and almondy for many uses (like grilled cheese - it just didn't work for me at all). In my search for another bread alternative, I came across this recipe:
10 Large Eggs
5 Tbsp of Melted Butter
1 Tsp of Salt
3/4 cup Coconut Flour
2 Tsp of Baking Powder
Preheat oven to 350 ° F. Whisk eggs until fluffy. Add the melted butter. Mix dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture. Stir. Put a parchment paper in a loaf pan and pour mixture into it. Bake for about 35 minutes.
I copied this recipe from a blog (Swedish Diet - Eating Fat Makes You Skinny: White Bread LCHF
), the author of which had translated it from a Swedish website (LCHF Recept: Ljust bröd att rosta | LCHF Recept.com
I made it with the alteration that the recipe calls for sesame seeds on top of the loaf, which I omitted. Mine did take longer than 35 minutes to bake, more like 45-50, I think. I LOVE this bread! It makes a small loaf, but I sliced it very thin and froze the slices. I just take out two at a time, defrost, and toast in a toaster oven, and enjoy a little peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or just toast and pile on some butter or cream cheese. Good stuff, and I will be experimenting with more seasonings and such, as this has a very mild/bland flavor that I think will be easier to alter than the almond butter bread. I'll be trying both sweet and savory variations. It's a LOT of eggs, though, so have to prepare for this one ahead of time, as I don't always have 10+ eggs on hand!
