Gluten FREE Coconut Flour Bread

This is a great bread that you can enjoy while following the Maximized Nutrition Plans.  Coconut flour is gluten free, jam packed with fiber (58%!) and low in carbohydrates.  Coconut oil, coconut flour, and coconut products in general are fantastic for anyone who is looking to lose weight and improve their health.  Rich in lauric acid, coconut oil contains NO trans fat, strengthens your immune system and boosts your metabolism!   Coconut oil/flour helps keep you feeling full so that you eat less and is an anti-fungal to boot!
Keep in mind that while this recipe is super quick and easy to make (no soaking required as there is no grain!), it is not anything like regular old wheat bread.  You’ll find this loaf to bake up very short at about 1 1/2 to 2 inches tall.  It will also be very dense.  Not ideal for sandwiches, but so good slathered with honey (butter, almond butter, pureed berries) along side a cup of tea.

Coconut Flour Bread

6 eggs
1/2 c melted coconut oil or butter (I usually use coconut oil)
1-2 Tbsp honey (optional, I usually leave it out)
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 c coconut flour (sifted once or twice)

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Sift coconut flour with sea salt into medium bowl.  In small bowl, beat eggs together slightly then add to flour.  Stir in oil/butter and optional honey.  Pour into a small oiled loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes.

2.) Turn the loaf out and cool completely on a rack before serving.  That’s it!
