Recipe:

1-2 Tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons coconut flour (adjust as needed)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Beat eggs into melted butter or oil. Add coconut flour and baking powder and mix well.

Pour into a microwave safe bowl that will provide a good shape for your bread when complete. Place a plate under your container just in case it overflows.

Microwave on high for 1:30 – 2:00, it will be firm and spongy.

When it has cooled enough to handle, run a knife around the edges and turn out onto a plate. Cut into desired size. Toast, and add your favorite toppings.

You can substitute flax meal or almond flour in place of the coconut flour, it will take about 2 tablespoons rather then the 2 teaspoons of coconut flour.

 


Low Glycemic Coconut Flour Bread

Coconut flour is much lower in protein than wheat flour, so the eggs are needed to give enough protein in our loaf.

165g (6oz) coconut flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
250g (9oz) butter, melted
12 eggs, lightly beaten

1. Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line a loaf pan with baking paper.

2. In a large bowl combine coconut flour, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt. Make a ‘well’ in the middle of the flour.

3. Add eggs and butter in the well. Whisk to combine, but don’t stress if there are a few lumps.

4. Transfer the mixture to your prepared pan. Smooth the top.

5. Bake for 45 minutes or until the loaf is well browned and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

6. Remove from the pan and cool on a rack before eating.

VARIATIONS
dairy-free– replace butter with 1 cup light flavoured olive oil or other mild flavoured oil.

vegan/ egg-free– I’m afraid the eggs are critical to the bread texture so best to stick to regular sourdough.

flavoured bread– feel free to add a few handfuls of your favourite flavourings like rosemary, roast cubed potato, seeds, nuts, roast garlic, caramelized onion. Whatever you feel like.

fruit loaf– stir in a few handfuls of dried fruit. I love figs or apricots. Almonds are also good.

    Ground flax seed (4 Tbsp) 1/4 cup water, artificial seeteenwr, mix in a raw egg let sit 10 min. to absorb liquid, put some cream cheese in the middle nuke 2 minutes for a muffin type food or 1.5 min. for more of a hot cereal type food. For daily fiber needs.I make a porridge as suggested by Dr.Mercola with low carb whey powder water, I add ground flax seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, coconut milk, tahini (ground sesame seeds) raw egg. All seeds nuts are raw soaked to germinate them.I make a green drink with spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass kelp with lemon juice stevia add rehydrated chia seed gel and drink this all day.Faux tapioca 2 cups of water, 5 scoops of low carb whey protein powder, stir together add cup of chia seeds, after they have started to absorb the water, add in 2 cans of coconut milk seeteenwr if you like and mix it all in. Can be eaten after an hour but will be better tomorrow. Cream a pkg. of cream cheese into a can of pumpkin and add to the faux tapioca for an even more nutritious pumpkin pie pudding.Food is not time stamped anything you like eating at night can be eaten in the morning. I never get tired of omelets, especially when they are loaded up with bacon, grilled onions, mushrooms, poblano peppers, broccoli cheese.I add ground flax seed or chia seed to about everything. They are both incredibly nutritious. Chia seeds swell up when soaked and remind me of tapioca with a strawberry seed inside. They really have no taste but I love the texture. No other whole grain compares on a nutritional level, and it has an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) that is greater than blueberries on a per-gram basis (80 micromole TE/d). I let them sit on the counter to soak for 12 hours this germinates them and raises the ORAC level 2.5x higher.I think they are much more nutritious raw and add them to salads tuna as well as making faux tapioca regularly. I also add them to cooked food for bulk but prefer to use flax seed for cooked food. Flax seed has a slight taste to it but chia seed is tasteless so it doesn’t change the flavor of foods the way flax seed would. In Mexico, they add chia seed to lemonade and call it chia fresca and it is addicting. I was getting 400% of my daily requirement of fiber by drinking this and have to regulate my intake, but it is fun.Chia seeds sound so expensive but 1# will make 10# food. I buy in bulk from getchia.com for $5# with free shipping.

It tastes peanutty to me.

Roasted nuts are dead they may still provide some nutrients, but none can compare to the nutrients and enzymes from a live food.Unfortunately, raw does not necessarily mean living.For example Commercially sold almonds are now required to be pasteurized turning a live food into a dead one. You can not sprout an almond that has been irradiated. I buy my almonds direct from growers off ebay. I get 20# for less than $3# including shipping.
