Coconut flour bread machine recipe?

Does anyone have a recipe for bread machine bread using coconut flour?

I was thinking of trying to put something together using coconut flour, maybe almond meal, some flax meal maybe? But, I'm a bread novice and have no idea where to start.

Any suggestions would be so appreciated!

Not to discourage you, but there is no gluten in coconut flour. Gluten is what makes the sticky strands that capture the bubbles put out by the yeast....and makes the bread rise.

I hope, however, that someone has otherwise overcome this limitation. I know that KevinPA has a number of bread recipes, but I don't think they depend on coconut flour. Take a look at his links on this page (they mostly are carbalose and oat flour recipes).

http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeehtdx/k...ite/id110.html

One more thing to add: though I haven't tried these recipes, KevinPA is highly respected around these parts (if you haven't heard of him), and if he says it's good, then it most likely is.

Oops, sorry! They aren't bread machine recipes.

I've made a couple of KevinPas recipes in the breadmaker and had good luck.

Thanks for the suggestions! I know I can add vital wheat gluten to a recipe since it's pretty low carb and that will deal with the gluten issue but, I'm just not sure how to deal with the coconut flour. I know in sweet breads, you need to increase your eggs when using coconut flour but, since most bread machine recipes don't use eggs, I'm sort of stumped.

Maybe I'll just play around and see what I come up with.

I have made a sort of sweetbread using Kevinpa's carbaloose flour and cookie mix in bread machine.
3/4 cup of water
1/4 c. cream
4 eggs
1 Tablespoon of oil
3 cups flour mix
1 Tablespoon of real sugar
2 teaspoons of bsking powder
1 pac rapid dry yeast

Put in bread machine as listed on dough cycle. Take out when it is done kneading , mine is in about 20 to 30 mins. Split dough in half in a round circle in a cake pan or 2 on cookie sheet. When risen I let my rise past double, Then bake 350 for 20 to 25 mins.
It's wonderful very light and tasty.

Best Low Carb Bread Bread Machine) Recipe - Food.com - 102631

I'm going to try his tomorrow. Several of the reviewers subbed coconut flour for the soy flour and added an additional egg.

Will bake this in the morning and report back.

The yeast will not feed off the Splenda-so I'm wondering how they get the yeast to proof? Even KevinPa uses a tsp or so of sugar to feed the yeasties.

I was wondering the same thing. I add a bit of sugar to all "growing" things, like yogurt and yeast.

ETA: this is sure making me wish I hadn't gotten rid of my bread machine lo all those years ago. But I'm afraid if I buy one, I'll use it!

I have it in the machine right now and it seem to be rising wonderfully. I used yogurt for part of the water and honey instead of splenda.

Will report back once it's finished baking.

Ok, YUM!!!! It turned out fantastic! I just sliced a piece off the still warm loaf and it sliced beautifully. It's light, fluffy, maybe a touch spongy??? But, nothing like I've had with other low carb breads. It's not dry at all, it rose beautifully. The only thing I would do differently is pull it out maybe 5 minutes earlier. I think it got a touch too dark. But, other than that - Yummm!

Here's what I did for a 2lb loaf:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup yogurt
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter (I used coconut oil)
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup ground flax seeds
1/3 cup almond meal
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried yeast

Follow your bread maker's instructions for the order in which you put ingredients into your bread machine.

Bake on "Light Wheat" setting.

I just have one question. What is the purpose of the yogurt? Can I substitute that with something else?

elana's pantry.com has a lot of gluten free recipes, and a lot of them would fall into low carb as well.

I used plain yogurt and I'm trying to remember where I read this but, I think I remember reading that yogurt can help with the "spongy" texture that a lot of low carb breads get because they're so low in gluten. But, now I can't for the life of me find any information to support that.

You could do all water - the original recipe called for all water but, a lot of people complained that the bread was too spongy so, that's why I did half yogurt and half water. I think it really helped. The bread was maybe a tiny touch spongy, but not really anything worth noting. To me it has a great, very bread like texture. But, I also tried it right out of the machine. I will let you know how it is tomorrow after sitting.

My bread maker is a White Westinghouse. I got it at goodwill for next to nothing. I think it's pretty old but, I make a loaf of bread every day or so and it works perfect.

I was thinking about going up to Goodwill and taking a look. Still might do that. Maybe I can find one with all the parts.....often they are missing something important, which is why they were given away.

Wow looks beautiful. So now I have a challenge for you.

I'm allergic to almonds and flax. I'm also gluten intolerant. Soooo what can I sub out in your recipe for the various components and still get the rise, that is also low carb?

Flax = 1/2 Qty Chia Seed Flour (Have that figured out)
Almond Flour = Dunno?
VWG = Dunno? Maybe a mixture of Garbanzo Bean Flour or Buckwheat Flour and what?

Mine is a Sunbeam from Walmart and I HATE it!

It does not like LC bread...it has 3 rises on it!
I have tried Kevin's and Jennifer's bread in them and its failed..
Now I just knead and take out to rise and bake..
I would love to find one that would do LC bread Cheap...
I will check our goodwills here..

You need the vital wheat gluten in order for the bread to rise.

There are a ton of gluten free, nut and flax free bread recipes but you wouldn't need a bread machine since you wouldn't need to knead the dough or let it rise. That's really the only purpose of the bread machine - it does the kneading and rise times for you but if you have a dough that doesn't rise or require kneading, you can just mix and bake.

For me, I wanted the light sandwich bread consistency that I think you can only get from this type of bread. But I'm definitely no expert.

Someone else mentioned elanas pantry. I think she has a sandwich type bread on her site but I believe it's a much more dense bread.

I'll have to pay attention to mine but, I know I have several settings that give different rise cycles. I'm not sure how many cycles the light wheat setting has which is what I used for hhis recipe.

I do know that when I was researching, Breadman bread makers got good reviews. But, i think Goodwill is the place to go. Just make sure it has the paddle. Also, there is usually a place where you can plug electronics in to make sure they work. I got mine on 50% off day for $5.

I'm making egg salad and grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Will report back and let you know not only how the bread is on day two but also how it works as sandwich bread in both cold and toasted sandwiches.

Just an update ~ tried the bread again today in a grilled cheese and just a regular egg salad sandwich and both worked perfectly. It holds together wonderfully, just like regular bread. It's not dry or crumbly, I didn't notice any sponginess at all today.

This ones a keeper!

Sounds like it needs a rest period after baking-a lot of homemade lc breads are better the next day.

Newbie here, loving the idea of this recipe. Plugged it into a recipe analysis and got these #'s for the whole loaf:

Calories 2,157
Calories from Fat 820

Total Fat 91.1g
Saturated Fat 42.4
Trans Fat 0.0g
Cholesterol 392mg
Sodium 2508mg
Total Carbohydrates 163.5g
Dietary Fiber 63.7g
Sugars 40.6g
Protein 206.4g
Vitamin A 17% • Vitamin C 1061%
Calcium 39% • Iron 41%

To get the recipe to be analysed correctly I used 4 oz as the measure for the yogurt (and I used FAGE Total plain whole milk yogurt) had to try to convert the gluten from cups to grams (Found a site that said 1 c= 180 g, so put 240 g in recipe analyser)

Other than that everything was just the way the recipe was written. I may be off on the gluten and the yogurt though...

Recipe I plugged in:

1/2 cup water
4 oz Total Plain Whole Milk Greek Yogurt [141910]
2 eggs
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup ground flax seeds
1/3 cup almond meal
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Flour [129930]
240 g Vital Wheat Gluten [89233]
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried yeast

Link to analyser: http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

I like this a lot, you can just plug in the ingredient list from any recipe and just tweak anything it's not sure of to get your info. Awesome thing really

I hope to try this over the weekend. Sounds good. I received a bread machine last year from my mom for Christmas. It was from QVC and has a low carb option. I have not tried that setting yet. I have made 3 loafs of regular bread for the family. Hope it works. Thanks

Tip on Bread Machine for Low Carb Bread

If the basic cycle is to long, which for most LC recipes it is, use the Express Bake which is about a 1 hour cycle with only 1 rise.

See my post at bottom. I have the Sunbeam and I use the Express Bake. It works for recipes like this.

To get the recipe to be analysed correctly I used 4 oz as the measure for the yogurt (and I used FAGE Total plain whole milk yogurt) had to try to convert the gluten from cups to grams (Found a site that said 1 c= 180 g, so put 240 g in recipe analyser)

Other than that everything was just the way the recipe was written. I may be off on the gluten and the yogurt though...

Recipe I plugged in:

1/2 cup water
4 oz Total Plain Whole Milk Greek Yogurt [141910]
2 eggs
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup ground flax seeds
1/3 cup almond meal
1/2 cup Organic Coconut Flour [129930]
240 g Vital Wheat Gluten [89233]
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried yeast

I like this a lot, you can just plug in the ingredient list from any recipe and just tweak anything it's not sure of to get your info. Awesome thing really
So how many slices in this loaf? That would help to know and then get the per slice carb count. Thank you for listing this!
