This Paleo coconut flour bread 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 a Paleo coconut flour bread recipe to share with you. I hope that you enjoy the recipe and let me know what you think. This Paleo coconut flour 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.
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 Paleo Coconut Flour Bread Recipes
I have 9 of the best Paleo coconut flour bread recipes 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 coconut flour 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 Coconut Flour 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 Paleo Coconut Flour Bread:
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?
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.
