Coconut Contentment - Toasted Coconut Bread (paleo, nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free)

Toasted Coconut Butter Bread

Coconut Contentment - Toasted Coconut Butter Bread - just 5 ingredients (paleo, nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free)I love bread – especially this one – it’s amazing for several reasons.

Taste and appearance rank up at the top for sure – but following this, it’s super easy and inexpensive!  “Inexpensive” and “easy” are not common words attached to Paleo or Gluten-Free Bread.  But this one right here takes little prep, needs only five ingredients and costs less than five dollars.

The recipe is inspired by two separate recipes – Toasted Coconut Butter from The Healthy Foodie, and Coconut Butter Bread from Loving Our Guts.  All that I can take credit for is combining the two – making delicious Toasted Coconut Butter Bread.

Toasted Coconut Butter Bread

Coconut Contentment - Toasted Coconut Butter Bread (paleo, nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free)

Prep: 5-10 min          Cook: 1 hr          Yields: 10-12 slices


  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup Toasted Coconut Butter (1 pound shredded coconut or coconut flakes)
  • 1/4 cup palm shortening, room temp grass-fed butter or ghee, or melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Spread the coconut out onto two baking sheets, place in oven for 10-15 minutes (until a lite brown/toasted).
  3. Remove coconut, add to high powered blender (Vitamix if you have one!) or food processor, blend/process until smooth and liquidy.  In the blender, this will take no time – make sure to use a tamper/accelerator stick if you have one.  It will take 2-3 minutes in the food processor with some scrapping down of the sides intermittently.
  4. Next add the palm shortening (or other fat) and blend/process until smooth.
  5. Finally add remaining ingredients.  Pour into a 4×6 or 5×9 loaf pan that is lined with parchment paper or is greased well. Place in oven, bake for 45-52 minutes, until the top is bouncy or a toothpick comes out clean.  Store wrapped in a paper towel in airtight container, preferably in the fridge, to maintain moisture.

This is quite delicious smothered in cherry jam! Enjoy :)

    Looks fabulous! I can’t wait to try it. Do you have a breakdown on the cost per loaf? I’m hoping it’s got to be less expensive than buying a loaf of “gluten free” break in the store.

    I did everything as instructed with a vitamix and I am finding that the texture is QUITE thick….wondering if I should add more liquid… It didn’t come close to pouring out and I don’t want to waste the batch!

      Marie – coconut butter can be quite particular, if your eggs were cold and the coconut butter was not warm from being just made – it most likely would have harden a bit from the cold eggs (in which case you could let it sit for 5-10 min to come to room temp). Or it is a bread that you can add a tablespoon or two more of palm shortening. Coconut flakes do not always have the same oil content. I hope that helps!

        Well it’s possible that there was a differentiation in the oil content in the coconut butter itself – I have made homemade coconut butter before that was drier than some that I’ve made – I’m really sorry that it didn’t turn out well! I highly recommend giving it another go with toasted flakes – toasting them should make them release more oil as well! On the Loving Our Guts blog she uses plain coconut butter – and does warn about the possibility of dryness! I assumed it would still turn out fine though – I’ve done it before, but I did definitely enjoyed the toasted more. I hope that the bread went to good use!

    This looks amazing!!! I really want to make this for my son, but he has an egg allergy. Any suggestions for replacements that you think would work well. Thank you!!!!


    1. Coconut Contentment Post author

      Lynn – Thank you! I wish that I could tell you that the eggs in this recipe are easy to replace, but in the case of majority coconut butter (or nut butter) baked goods, replacing eggs is not very simple! – I actually am always experimenting to try and create egg-free baked goods! I will hopefully post one soon – I hope to experiment with my cinnamon raisin bread as well to make it egg-free – Thank so much for your comment!
