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!

Thanks for visiting the Americus Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast Blog.  If you try this recipe, let me know how it comes out for you.

Love,
Susan
