Coconut Flour Keto Bread (Delicious!)
- 1/2 cup warm water (75-80 degrees)
- 1 packet instant yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 6 eggs (room temp)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon psyllium husks (75-80 degrees)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 2 tablespoons ground flax
- 3/4 cup coconut flour (75-80 degrees)
- Preheat your oven to 100 degrees.
- (This is your "bread proof" setting if you have one)
- Grease a bread pan heavily around the bottom and sides with butter, ghee or refined coconut oil.
- In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, combine: 1/2 c warm water (75-80 degrees),1 packet instant yeast, 1 tsp sugar (the yeast eats the sugar so the resulting sugar content is negligible)
- Let sit for 5 minutes.
- It should be foamy.
- Meanwhile, in your mixer bowl.
- Combine: 6 eggs (room temp) and 1/2 c olive oil.
- With a flat or regular beater, blend until combined.
- Add: 1 Tbs Acacia Fiber,1 tsp xanthan gum, 2 Tbs Ground Flax, 1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 cup coconut flour (108 g) and blend until combined.
- Now add the foamy yeast to the egg & coconut flour mixture and beat for one minute.
- Let rest for one minute.
- Beat for one minute.
- Repeat 3 times.
- (This allows the yeast to incorporate into the dough)
- Pour the keto bread dough into a greased bread pan.
- Smaller bread pans will yield a taller loaf.
- Using a bigger bread pan gets you a loaf in different dimensions.
- Place in a 100 degree oven for 10 minutes to "proof"
- Remove pan from oven and leave covered in a warm place in your kitchen.
- Set your oven to 350 degrees.
- Let bread dough sit covered on the counter for 20 minutes while your oven preheats.
- Your bread should continue to "rise" and grow in size as the yeast performs it's magic.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack.
- Allow bread to cool completely (about 2 hours) before removing from the pan and slicing.
- Store on the counter for 2-3 days or slice and keep in the freezer for a few weeks.
- Recipe Notes Note: You can omit the ground flax if you wish.
- Expect less of a rise and a little sweeter flavor to the finished keto bread.
