I’ve managed to cut my loaf into 15 slices, leaving each slice with 1.3 grams of net carbs. Super cool result for a low carb bread, right?

  3. Next, let’s add the coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husks, and salt. Mix just enough to incorporate all ingredients.
  4. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and cover it with a baking sheet. I used a 20cm one here. Then, add in the batter.
  5. Preheat oven at 180C (350F) and bake it for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

This Peanut Bread now definitely figures on my list of favourite low carb bread recipes in the world! I don’t know about you, but I’m crazy about peanuts, so just imagining a bread made of peanuts makes my stomach go nuts 😝.

In case peanuts are a no-no for you, they can easily be replaced by any other type of nuts. Also, this recipe can turn into a beautiful cake! Just add 1/4 cup of any sweetener of your choice.

  • 4 eggs
  • ⅔ cup of water at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
Directions
  1. Add peanuts in a food processor and process them until you get something that resembles a flour texture.
  2. Next add eggs, salt, and water. Mix well until you get a smooth batter.
  3. Then, add the baking powder and mix for a few seconds.
  4. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and cover it with a baking sheet. I used a 20cm one here. Then, add in the batter.
  5. Preheat oven at 180C (350F) and bake it for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
