Coconut Flour Gluten-free Bread (Vegan, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Oil-free)

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I've becoming more and more interested in gluten-free baking recently. However, I was too lazy to buy all those different kinds of flour to make a gluten-free flour mix. So, I've been looking for a simple gluten-free recipe that is simple, clean and fast. Simple in the sense of not requiring too much of different flour. Clean in the sense that it can be made with only one bowl (Yay!). The preparation time of this bread is under 15 minutes (I spent only 5 minutes on my second trial :P). Then, all you have to do is pop it into the oven and be patient for 50 min. After that, you will get a freshly baked gluten-free bread that amazes your taste bud.



I adapted this recipe from Maria Emmerich to make a vegan version of this bread :)
Note: Weighing of the ingredients is highly recommended as this recipe is very sensitive to the accuracy of each ingredients.

This recipe makes 4-5 small buns, or you can make a large sub if you want.



Ingredients:

Dry:

71 g Coconut flour
36g Psyllium husk powder (no substitutes)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 heaped tsp Aduna baobab (optional)
Pinch of salt

Wet:

28g Tbs apple cider vinegar
3 chia eggs  (3 Tbsp grounded chia seeds + 9 Tbsp lukewarm water)
1 cup boiling water



Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C
  2. In a large bowl, add the coconut flour flour, psyllium powder, baking powder and salt. and mix well
  3. Add in the chia eggs and vinegar and mix until combine. I suggest you mix with your hand until it forms a thick dough. 
  4. Add boiling water into the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up.
  5. Divide the dough into 4 or 5 equal parts and roll them into balls
  6. Press them downward to make them slightly flat
  7. Place them on a lined baking tray, 1 inch apart, as they will slightly expand during baking
  8. Bake for 50 minutes until it is firm to touch
  9. Remove from the oven and place it on a tray to cool down
  10. Cut it half horizontally and stuff with your favorite fillings. Mine is avocado, beetroot, grilled tempeh and zoodles <3 Sweet fillings will be good too! I will go for raw nut butter and bananas! 




Let me know how you think about it! I absolutely LOVE this recipe <3

  4. I have a very oily skin, so I stay away from oily food. Then again, it's hard to find a recipe that is oil-free. Thank God, I found this! Now I can enjoy my bread. And since it is sugar-free, I will definitely try this recipe! I am now aware about coconut flour’s health benefits and it is a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye that make traditional breads and baked goods off-limits for people sensitive to such. Coconut flour enables you to bake some of your favorite cookies, pancakes and cakes without the serious side effects that may come from ingesting wheat. Coconut flour does act differently in batters than traditional grain flours, though, so you'll need to seek out recipes that adjust the other recipe ingredients accordingly.
