Paleo Bread

Ok, I didn’t know what in the world to call these.  I kinda think of them as a roll but my husband says “no, it’s more like a lunch muffin.”  We settled on biscuit. I had really hoped to share another Paleo dessert recipe this week but my cold has dragged on and I haven’t baked in a couple of days.  I was glad I had this one on the back burner to share for an off week as it’s tough to come up with something new when you can’t smell or taste anything but salt.

Anyhow, my goal with all my coconut flour recipes is 1) It does not taste like coconut flour as I don’t really like the taste of it (neither does my husband) 2) They are not heavy bricks and 3) They are as light and fluffy as I can get them. I tried something new with this recipe and,while they did not come out as fluffy as I wanted them to, I think that the extra step worked. I’m not done fussing with this recipe so don’t be surprised to see it show up again down the road.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl mix the egg yolks, coconut flour, sea salt, honey, water, coconut oil and vinegar. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl beat your egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. Next add the baking soda to the coconut flour mixture and mix thoroughly. The mixture should expand slightly.
  4. Take 1/2 of the egg while mixture and start folding it into the coconut flour. When this is incorporated add the balance. Mine was not super fluffy so don't worry if yours isn't.
  5. Spoon the mixture into a greased muffin tin and bake at 350 for 12 -15 minutes.

    They look great!

    I think ‘biscuit’ is a good compromise. I’m glad to read that you’ve made progress on this recipe and am anxious for you to perfect it soon!

  • December 10, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    They sound super easy to make.. and look great as well!

    These look awesome. I do like a biscuit with a bit of texture to it and good to see an alternative to almond flour 🙂

    coconuts and biscuits?! I think I am in heaven. I would love to try these

  • December 11, 2012 at 7:34 am

    I bought coconut flour to make some of these and other things you have posted.

    • December 11, 2012 at 11:45 am

      Oooh, exciting. Coconut flour is such a crazy flour. It’s amazing how much it soaks up. I hope you find something you love Maryann.

    These look delicious! I’ve been looking for a simple Paleo biscuit recipe for awhile and still have not found one that’s just right. I’ll look forward to trying this version!

      I hope you like them Alicia 🙂

    I can almost smell these through my computer screen–they look so perfect and golden brown! I need to try baking with coconut flour.

    • December 11, 2012 at 11:47 am

      Aw, thanks. I can actually smell today, Hallelujah!

    I love biscuits but the only way I’ve ever made them is the way my Mom has always made them — not very healthy and very high in calories. I’m definitely going to give these a try!

    Coconut flour sounds really good. These look amazing.

  • December 12, 2012 at 7:57 am

    I’ve never heard of coconut flour. I’ll have to see if I can find some next time I’m at the store.

    We adore coconut flour so that wouldn’t be a problem. You could even add a sprinkle of cheese as an extra treat. YUM!

  • December 13, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Sounds scrumptious!

  • December 13, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    I have never used coconut flour before, but those look great!

  • December 15, 2012 at 9:41 am

    Love easy recipes. Sounds great.

    I made these tonight but ended up with an oily layer and a merengue layer that did not want to combine. Also, my oily layer was super chunky no matter how I whipped. They are in the oven now, will report back in 15 minutes…

    • September 30, 2014 at 11:24 am

      Wowza, I hope they came together hun.

    They definitely don’t taste like coconut. More like egg. I’m not sure what to adjust … Thank you for sharing your recipe! 🙂

    • March 6, 2015 at 8:39 am

      You could try subbing out one of the eggs with only egg white. I’ve never done this but that would cut down on the egg taste.

  • November 4, 2015 at 9:53 pm

    Made these today and they are delicious! Just what the doctor ordered for this autoimmune-paleo-diet-girl!

    • November 20, 2015 at 10:28 am

      Yeah! They are great and low carb too!
