  1. I am so hesitant to make this because it appears just from reading it that it’s going to be a very soup, runny batter ?? There are not nearly enough dry ingredients? Does it gel or something?

    • Maria Rickert Hong says:

      Hi Lesley,

      It’s actually a little on the dryer side. Coconut flour is extremely absorbent, and it can’t be used in a 1:1 replacement for other types of flours. Because it’s so absorbent, lots of liquid in the form of eggs and oil needs to be added.

      To Your Health,

  2. Can this recipe be made with flax eggs? Can not tolerate eggs at all. Thanks.

    • Maria Rickert Hong says:

      Hi Jean,

      I haven’t tried making this recipe with flax eggs. The only caveat I can think of is that I believe flax eggs can only be used to substitute for up to 3 eggs in a recipe. It’s worth a shot, though, so let me know how it turns out!

      To Your Health,
      Maria

  3. I just tried making this bread and it has good flavor, but it is very dense and it never rose up. Is that normal? It tastes good, but looks nothing like the picture!

    • Maria Rickert Hong says:

      Hi Amanda,

      It doesn’t rise very much, you’re right. And it is very dense. You could always try adding in a little more baking soda to see if that helps.

      To Your Health,
      Maria

    • I made this bread this morning. It did not pour, in fact it had the consistency of a corn bread. It also never rose. It’s like a brick. What happened?

  4. I’m trying your bread recipe tonight. I’m praying it is good. This will be used for sandwiches and/or toast. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  5. J'Marinde says:

    What about some baking powder or yeast to get it to rise?

    • Maria Rickert Hong says:

      You could add those things in, but that would make it a non-GAPS-legal recipe. Maybe more baking soda?

  6. The batter was a cookie batter consistency for me. Is that how it’s supposed to be? I know coconut flour is absorbent but when you say you should “pour” this into the pan, it got me confused as there was nothing to pour. Excited to try it when it’s finished though!

  7. Many thanks for this recipe! I’m new to the benefits of coconut flour (have long used coconut for about a billion other things- silly me for not making the connection!) …but I’m unfortunately not new to poor health. 4 yrs into “fibromyalgia” (or so I’m told) & I’m tired of the severe constant pain, pure exhaustion, digestion issues, etc. So I’m perusing your website and am eager to learn… & pray that some additional nutritional shifts will be my literal life-saverm. Many thanks.
