I highly suggest reading the comments before making this recipe. There have been varied results and I think we finally figured out what caused the variation. Be sure to use dried coconut flakes and not coconut flour to get the right results.
Sometimes I feel like I have hit the jackpot when I find awesome recipes on Pinterest. This Paleo Coconut Bread is one of those finds! I adjusted the original recipe slightly for my own taste, but it is pretty much the same recipe. Not only is this a simple to make, but can’t you just imagine all the things you will do with it? The first thing I made was coconut french toast. Oh my! It’s much better than the original french toast that I used to make in my pre-real food days because it is packed with flavor and filling.
What you’ll need:
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 Tablespoon honey (the original recipe called for 3 T)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, not in the original recipe
3 cups unsweetened DESSICATED coconut flakes, ground into flour with a food processor or coffee grinder
1 teaspoon coconut oil, for oiling the bread pan
Preheat oven to 285 degrees. Grind the coconut flakes into smaller pieces, but be careful not to over grind and make into coconut butter add baking powder to the ground coconut. In a separate bowl beat eggs then mix in vanilla, honey, cinnamon. Mix well. Slowly blend in the ground coconut/baking powder mix. Allow the coconut to start absorbing the liquid mixture (about 2 minutes or so).
Line a bread pan with coconut oil. Fill the bread pan with batter. Bake at 285 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle. Mine took about 45 minutes with a convection oven, so it might take a bit longer if you have a regular oven.
