Paleo Coconut Flour Bread Recipe

I made this paleo coconut flour bread the other day and I can't stop eating it. I put a little bit of butter or coconut oil on top after heating it up in the microwave -- so good! The original recipe called for 2 tablespoons of raw honey but I omitted it from my recipe. I didn't miss it one bit, but if you've got a bit of a sweet tooth, you can add that back in to yours.

What you'll need:
3/4 cup     coconut flour
1 tsp     baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup     coconut oil, softened
1 Tbsp     cinnamon
1 tsp     vanilla extract
2 Tbsp     raw apple cider vinegar
6 large eggs, separated

What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a standard loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
2. Mix together coconut flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
3. Add in softened coconut oil and stir till well blended and smooth.
4. Separate the eggs, beat egg whites till stiff and set aside. Add egg yolks, vanilla and apple cider vinegar to the coconut flour mixture.
5. Quickly fold in egg whites to the mixture.
6. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan.
7. Bake for about 40 minutes.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! Let us know in the comments if you tried it out!


  1. How many servings does this recipe yield? Thanks!

  2. What is the role of apple cider vinegar for the recipe?

    1. Hello. I believe the addition of apple cider vinegar would act in part with the baking soda as a leavening agent. Together the two create a CO2 rxn. Baking powder vs soda already has an acid ingredient aluminum sulfate thus creating the rxn.

  3. Interesting. I like the tasty ingredients you have here. I need to still order my coconut flour as the small quantities seems to be expensive. Here's another recipe I will try using psyllium husk powder.

  4. I LOVE IT!! I too left out the honey... I substituted 1/4 c. of almond meal and 1/2 c of coconut flour and topped it with hulled hemp seed... SO YUMMY!!! Thank you for sharing! I am sharing it with everyone in my family and weight loss support group.
