4 Ingredient Quick Coconut Bread - keto, gluten free recipe

4 Ingredient Quick Coconut Bread - for 1 in less than 5 minutes

This is my new favorite recipe.  I make a variation of this every day for my midday meal.  Sometimes, I add cheese, sometimes, I make a sandwich, sometimes, I make a mini pizza.  You get the idea.
This is everything you need - a Tablespoon of butter, one egg, a Tablespoon of coconut flour and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.
Place the tablespoon of butter in a 7 ounce ramekin (or you can use a large mug).  Microwave for about 35 seconds, or until just melted.
Allow butter to cool as you place one egg in a small mixing bowl.
Add one Tablespoon of coconut flour to the bowl.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the bowl.
It really is this simple.
Mix the egg, coconut flour and baking powder with a spatula until well mixed.
Add the melted butter to the bowl.
Mix well.  Let it sit for a minute.  Mix again.
Scoop batter into the ramekin.
Microwave for 90 seconds.
Remove from the microwave and immediately invert and remove the coconut bread from the ramekin onto a plate.
Slice in half (or thirds if you want it thinner).
Looks like bread, right?  Now, toast in a toaster until nicely browned.
Enjoy fresh from the toaster with butter or cheese or peanut butter or a poached egg...  
With so many people on a gluten free diet and so many others trying the keto lifestyle, this recipe is perfect.  It comes together in less than 5 minutes and it is very satisfying. If you have family members visiting for the holidays and someone needs a gluten free/keto option, here is a possible substitution for a biscuit, a roll, an English muffin, a hamburger bun or bread!
