This Paleo coconut flour bread recipe is good for sandwiches. It looks and tastes so similar to a honey wheat bread, thanks to the honey and flax meal. Homemade bread is always one of my favorite smells to come home to. I had a roommate that would always make her own bread instead of buying store-bought bread and it was amazing! We always had freshly baked bread that semester! Now that I don’t eat “normal” bread I have been on a mission to find/create the best recipes for good bread.
I wanted a recipe that used coconut flour so today I have the best Paleo bread recipe to share with you. I hope that you enjoy the recipe and let me know what you think. This Paleo bread looks and tastes so similar to a honey wheat bread, thanks to the honey and flax meal. The flax meal gives the bread a somewhat chewy texture while the arrowroot starch helps hold it together (which is highly unusual for a Paleo bread to hold together like this).
One of the things I love about bread is how versatile it is. Obviously, you can use for a sandwich, but there are other good things you can use this for, such as a side dish with your dinner, for stuffing/dressing, as a snack on it’s own, as toast with almond butter spread on it hot so it half melts, topped with butter or coconut oil and broiled, to make a breakfast egg sandwich, and the list goes on and on.
Is Paleo bread the same as gluten-free?
One of the main criteria of a Paleo diet is that it has to be gluten-free. So to answer the question, Paleo bread is gluten-free but it is also dairy-free and contains no processed sugar. So it may be made with honey or maple syrup instead of sugar.
Is sourdough bread Paleo?
Sourdough is made with a starter instead of yeast or some other agent to make it rise like soda or baking powder is a cake. It is possible to find a sourdough bread recipe that is Paleo. They aren’t really common and difficult to find a good one. I found one that is a Keto sourdough baguette recipe that you might like. This recipe is also Paleo. The Keto diet is very similar to Paleo but without any sweeteners. If you want other Paleo sourdough bread recipes just google it and see what you get.
Can you eat any bread on the Paleo diet?
Absolutely not! The bread which is not allowed on the Paleo diet is with wheat flours but there are tons of recipes for bread that are Paleo. They are made with other flours such as almond flour, coconut flour and cassava flour. There is a relatively new flour called Paleo flour which is a combination of about 3 flours that I think is excellent.
What does Paleo bread have in it?
It is made with grain-free flours like I mentioned just above. They are usually made with honey in place of sugar but other than that they are pretty normal. Look at some of the recipes below and you can see exactly what they are made with.
Is Ezekiel bread on the Paleo diet?
Ezekiel bread is made with sprouted grains. No grains are allowed on the Paleo diet. A person that follows a strict Paleo diet will not eat Ezekiel bread. However, some people that don’t follow a strict Paleo diet may allow Ezekiel bread in their diet on a limited basis.
How do you like to use your Paleo bread? I would love to know how you use this. Please comment below.

9 of the Very Best Coconut Flour Bread Recipes
I have 9 of the best bread recipes made with coconut flour to share with you. Coconut flour is a great flour to use for a Paleo lifestyle, gluten-free or Clean Eating recipes. Coconut flour is especially good for bread recipes.
Coconut flour has it’s own characteristics so these recipes will only turn out good if coconut flour is used in the recipe. Coconut flour typically tends to need extra liquid for the bread to achieve a good texture and flavor. Don’t try to substitute other kinds of flour, because the bread just won’t have the right consistency.
Coconut flour is great because it is not a refined grain plus it is gluten-free. So if you are looking for good bread recipes that are free of gluten and Paleo, then this is a great place to be!
Coconut flour is not just a product for gluten intolerant people but has benefits for everyone! This flour is high in fiber, manganese, lauric, and protein.
I hope these Paleo sandwich bread recipes are helpful and that you enjoy them and find some that become your favorites.
Here are some answers to some common questions about bread made with coconut flour:
Is coconut bread fattening?
I don’t consider coconut bread fattening. Coconut flour is high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats. It’s also low in digestible carbs, low in sugar and lower in calories. On the glycemic index, it has a low score.
What is the healthiest type of flour?
All things considered in order the healthiest flours are: coconut flour, sprouted flour, oat flour, rice flour, tapioca flour, chickpea flour, sorghum flour, and cassava flour.
How many carbs are in coconut flour?
Compared to almond flour which has 6 grams of carbs, coconut flour has 16 grams of crabs for the same amount of flour.
Can I use coconut flour instead of all purpose flour?
NO, coconut flour is extremely absorbent compared to any other type of flour. There is no way you can sub coconut flour straight across for any other flour unless you want to gag when you eat whatever you made.
Can coconut flour go bad?
The shelf life of coconut flour is like any other flour. It will keep for a long time, but the longer it sits without being used, the staler it will taste.
