Gluten Free Coconut bread



So for this I found a recipe online, which was basically 6 eggs and coconut flour, coconut oil and salt.

The result - this wins as the worst bread I've made so far, almost had to throw it away. In the end froze it and ate it toasted with lots of butter and jam and it was just about edible.

What I learnt is that coconut flour is VERY dry as it has ALL the oil and moisture taken out of it.. The kind of dryness that saps every drop of moisture from your mouth. So is definitely best used in moderation with other flour.

The taste was egg mostly and very dry coconut and it was really hard to swallow.

I'll try some other recipes and post the results..

Pros - high protein, filling.
Cons - tastes like egg, too dry.
