Coconut Almond White Bread (low carb, gluten & grain free)

Coconut Almond Flour “White Bread”

This stuff is good y’all…like real bread good! It holds up REALLY WELL!!!! You could make a sandwich…we tried it as grilled cheese and it was good. We tried it cold (I keep all my LC/GF stuff in the fridge) with peanut butter and it was like a Wonderbread PB sandwich…good stuff, and easy. And not a lot of fancy ingredients…Make it. You won’t be disappointed. It even looks like real bread. (Disclaimer, if you have never baked with coconut flour, it makes things a little spongy…so the texture, with nothing on it, is a little “off”, but the flavor is there – a quote from my husband. But, this is by far the BEST low carb; gluten free bread we’ve experimented with yet)

UPDATE: Makes an AH-MAZING grilled cheese…just pop on the foreman grill with cheese in the middle and grill. Delicious! No extra butter needed because of the high butter content in the recipe 🙂

Coconut Almond White Bread – Low Carb and Gluten Free

2/3 c Blanched Almond Meal Flour, 5 lb. (1 Pack)” target=”_blank”>almond flour (Honeyville people, invest, seriously!
1/3 c Let’s Do Organic Coconut Flour, 16-OuncePouches (Pack of 6)” target=”_blank”>coconut flour
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
pinch of salt
1 packet of stevia (I use Trader Joes brand)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
6 eggs
3 Tbsp coconut oil – liquified
1/2 c. butter – melted
1/3 c. ricotta cheese (full fat)

Line your bread pan (I use an 8×4) with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350.

In your food processor, blend with your S-blade all the dry ingredients until they are well combined. Add the butter and the oil and mix until combined. Add the eggs and the cheese and allow to process for a minute or two, until everything is really well mixed and the eggs have had ample time to get “airy”-ish.

Pour batter into prepared bread pan and allow to sit for about 10 minutes before you pop into the oven.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool and then slice like regular bread.

  1. I'm not sure on the exact nutrition facts, as different products can vary widely. In fact, I always double check that I'm buying the right Ricotta, because there is one brand that is 6 g carbs per 1/4 cup serving and the one I buy which only has 2g carbs per 1/4 cup serving. Using my ingredients, I calculate approximately 15 carbs per loaf, and I usually slice it into about 12 pieces, so about 1.5 carbs per piece.
