Coconut Kefir Bread

Being on a diet most of my life, (and failed many times) I have finally learned what is good for weight maintenance and what is not. I can’t teach you what to eat or not, but I can tell you what works for me. Wheat makes me gain weight like a blimp, but having the “carb” cravings all the time doesn’t help. So I turn to an alternative bread made with coconut flour, coconut oil and other good stuff. It doesn’t mean you can eat the whole loaf, but you may eat a slice and maintain your weight. This is also great for those who have gluten intolerance. It’s tasty and easy to make.

150g milk kefir
60g coconut flour
60g flax flour
30g hemp seeds
4 eggs
3 tbsp coconut oil
6g baking powder
3g baking soda
pinch of salt

Use 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil to grease a loaf pan and half of the hemp seeds to coat the inside of the pan. Beat the eggs and kefir together. Add the remaining coconut oil, flours, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Wisk just until incorporated. Pour batter into loaf pan and sprinkle the remaining hemp seeds over the batter. Bake in pre-heated oven at 175C for 40 minutes. Serve with Chocolate Almond Spread.

*If you are interested and starting to make your own kefir, please let me know. I will gladly send you some dehydrated grains by mail.
