Grain Free Cinnamon Bread
Who doesn’t love a slice of hot cinnamon bread? I don’t usually miss bread but some sweet goodness like this I can’t resist. No need to feel guilty as this recipe as it checks all the boxes for being gluten, grain, dairy, nut free and soy free.
Making bread healthy is easy if you just substitute out the traditional high carbohydrate, low fiber flour for either a coconut or almond flour. This recipe uses coconut flour which is a bit trickier to use in baking. You can’t switch out coconut flour evening for a white flour as it takes up a lot more liquid. If you were using an almond flour the ingredients could be swapped one for one as almond flour will work more like a traditional white or wheat flour. The use of a grain free flour makes this gluten free and lower in carbohydrates so the net carbs on the bread are only 9 g for 1/8th of the loaf.
If you want to get 12 individual servings you can make this recipe in muffin tins just following the same basic guidelines below only using the muffins instead. They may cook a little quicker in muffins so check them at 30 minutes to see if they are brown.
Enjoy hot or refrigerate or freeze for later. I’d love to hear from you if you make the bread so reach out and let me know what you think.
