Gluten Free Low Carb Bread

Gluten Free Low Carb Bread

Gluten Free Low Carb Bread made with Coconut Flour and Flax

Nutiva Organic Coconut Flour, 3 lb.

Low carb diets are what works best for me, but like many people, sometimes I just really miss that bread!

I’m not a big bread person myself, but there are times when I really want it. Poached eggs right? You need something to soak up the yolk. BLT’s? Grilled cheese sandwich?

So when I came across this gluten free low carb bread recipe on Pinterest I decided I was going to give it a try. The secret is using coconut flour!

And besides, I was following very low carb The 100 Diet, and coconut flour is a freebie flour, so a great way to add some variety!

This recipe comes from a site called Joyful Abode.  Thanks to them for coming up with this!

Anyways, here is the recipe so you can make your own low carb bread:

Gluten Free Low Carb Bread with Coconut and Flax

  • 1 c coconut flour, sifted (I prefer this Organic Coconut Flour)
  • 1 c flax seeds, ground and sifted (I grind my own in a coffee grinder)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda

Pre-heat oven to 325.  Sift these first 4 ingredients into a bowl.low carb bread

  • 10 eggs
  • 1/2 c coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 c plain full fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  1. Whisk the eggs, coconut oil, yogurt and vinegar in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. (Mine was very stiff)
  3. Put batter into a loaf pan.  I only use these silicone loaf pans now, the bread just pops right out!
  4. Bake for 50-60 minutes (Mine in the photo was baked for 60 minutes)
  5. Let it cool in the pan for a few minutes, then turn it out onto a board or wire rack to finish cooling.  Let it cool completely for cutting.

Sliced into 18 pieces, it is 6.5 carbs (for the 100 diet) per slice or 2.5 net carbs (for Atkins).

And of course this is what I had for breakfast the next morning!   Poached eggs on low carb bread, toasted. Oh yeah, baby!

TIP:  Toast the bread twice to get it crisp enough!

    Would coconut yogurt work or is it not fat enough?

    • Diet Guru says:

      I’ve never actually seen coconut yogurt in the stores around here. I think as long as it is not fat free, it would work.

    How does it taste? One of my downfalls is eating bread.. So I’m really curious about this.. I might just have to try it sometime..

    • Diet Guru says:

      Kelly, it doesn’t take like normal wheat bread as there are a lot of eggs in it. But this morning I had a BLT with it, and it was yummy. Slice it as thin as you can and toast it on high (or twice) to make it crispy.

  18. Brad Lynch says:

    I can’t wait to have my wife try this. We’ve tried many that haven’t been very good. This looks like a good one!

  19. I never considered using coconut flour! Thanks for the info

  20. I just wish the fresh coconut milk is available in our market now…being organic is far more better than using the processed coconut powder.

    WOW! Looks very very delicious.

  25. Tessa says:

    I’m just curious how you knew the coconut flour was a freebie on The 100. I’ve been wondering about this because it’s not actually on the list of freebies. It lists coconut oil and coconut milk, but not the flour, so I haven’t been sure.

    • Diet Guru says:

      Jorge Cruise mentioned it on a youtube video. He was making muffins or something like that and referred to the non grain flours as freebie flours. So I took that to mean what he said! Actually I will ask him, now that you say this. One should never assume right?

    • anitabreeze says:

      Jorge said it on one of his youtube videos, you are correct it’s not in the book!

  26. Ingrid says:

    I tried this bread! I’ve had the coconut flour for a while and didn’t know what to with it. This is really yummy bread

  27. Kristy Penick says:

    really late to this site and post. If someone could maybe address my question it would be great. Is 1 cup flaxseed measured before or after grinding? Thanks ahead of time for your time and answers.

    • DietReviewGirl says:

      ohhhh, I never even thought of that, I assumed and made it with 1 cup measured flax seeds and THEN I ground them. But now I might try it the other way to see if any difference. Thanks for the question!

  28. janmart says:

  29. Angel says:
