Keto Coconut Flour Mug Bread
Our most popular recipe, the 90 second Keto mug bread
Ever since I made the 90-second Keto Bread in the microwave in a mug, the most comment question I got asked was ‘can I make this with coconut flour?’ and the simple answer was, no. Coconut flour reacts very differently than almond flour and it soaks up a lot more moisture. So I had to work at the recipe and tweak it a bit to get the perfect keto bread texture. This is perfect for sandwiches, burgers or just as a side to your favourite dishes.
Cooking it right
Coconut flour can be tricky to work with. The texture of this bread can turn from fluffy to sawdust in a matter of 10 seconds. It’s really important to not overcook the bread. You should also keep in mind that coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture/liquid compared to say almond flour. That’s one of the reasons I’ve added in the heavy cream to this recipe which can be substituted with by coconut cream, almond milk or even soya milk. Feel free to play around with this recipe to get the texture you looking for.

Keto Coconut Flour Mug Bread
- 2 tbsp Coconut Flour I use this one
- 1 tbsp Heavy Whipping Cream I recommend this one
- 1 tbsp olive oil I use this one
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 tsp Baking Powder I recommend this one
- Salt to Taste
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl
- Pour into a mug (or just mix them in the mug)

- Remove and slice
Can this be done without a microwave?
You are great.
Hi Madalyn, you can bake this in the oven at 170C for about 10 minutes or till the toothpick comes out clean. That should work as well. I also do have a recipe for a full loaf of coconut flour bread using the oven. You can check that out here: https://headbangerskitchen.com/recipe/keto-coconut-flour-bread/
I cant get enough of your accent !!! You are awesome and the mug bread is too. Sharing to all my friends. thank u
haha thank you so much for the kind words.
Yes! Me too! Adoreee! Thank you for the great job!!
It was very yummy without an eggy taste. The only problem was the texture was a bit soft and crumbly and didn’t hold up as a bun for a burger. Any suggestions for making the bread more sturdy?
I think you can remove or add less cream then it will be more sturdy.
I’ve made this several times and love it. After microwave I slice it in half and “grill” it on my George Foreman.
Hi ! I did not quite like the eggy taste of the coconut bread. Can you suggest something else, vegetarian, to add instead of the egg?
Hi Anjana, eggs are vegetarian world over. Only in India we call them non veg despite being unfertilized. However there is no substitute for it I’m afraid. However if you want to lessen the egg smell/taste, there are a couple of tricks, for starters make sure your eggs are fresh, most Indian broiler eggs are quite smelly, switch over the odourless eggs which are available. Also for a savoury bread use some herbs like rosemary or oregano to mask the egginess. Also for a sweetish bread you can add vanilla and stevia. So that’s the best way to work with this.
Eating a piece of it now. It’s awesome and so are you!!
Thank you Katherine.
Man alive, all my late night snack cravings are solved! Quick and easy and now I have something to put all my fave cracker toppings on. I can’t taste the egg at all, though I can taste the coconut. Definitely going to have to try to almond flour version as well. Thanks for this great speedy bread recipe. 🙂
I just had this with pate for breakfast, very tasty and a nice soft texture. I found it much less eggy than the almond version. I might try subbing a little ground flax for a wholemeal type effect..
This keto diet is absolutely life changing for me and all your recipes are invaluable for keeping me motivated, so a heartfelt thankyou from Wales, uk!
Thank you for the kind words Julie. 🙂
so one mugs worth is one serving?
Yes that is correct
I’m so excited to try this! Happy that I stumbled onto your page! I love the name, lol! Gonna go home and try this today after work! Thank you!
Could I sub the olive oil for some bacon fat? Mine is coming out pretty thick like corn bread
Yes you definitely can. It’s a pretty thick bread. That’s how Keto bread is.
Ty this was sooooo good yummie.not even used salt
Can I use whipping cream instead of heavy whipping cream? Thanks! 🙂
Awesome recipe but I’m lactose intolerant, is there anything you can suggest to replace the heavy whipping cream?
Yes use coconut cream or coconut milk instead.
With the same quantity of heavy whipping cream ?
Awesome recipe! I made mine in a ramekin, cut in half then toasted and topped with salted butter. Really satisfying! Thanks Sahil.
This made a great bacon egg and cheese sandwich. Better than McDs!
Thanks again, Sahil! I was looking for something to round out Matt and Megha’s Breakfast Casserole and this mug bread was perfect! I felt like I’d eaten a feast. I can’t believe how easy and quick it is to have keto bread to go with a meal.
Do you have to whip the heavy cream?
Nope, just use as is. You can also use coconut milk in place.
You could also substitute the oil for garlic butter 0 hey presto – garlic bread!
I made this today, didn’t come out as light and fluffy as Almond version, but I love the taste. Great for quick and tasty snack (mum loves it too, and she not on keto).
Definitely going to try it with garlic butter mmm
Mine just falls apart… how do you make it more solid please?
Maybe use less cream, microwave it a bit longer.
Love it . For anyone who thinks its too “eggy”, add herbs and a bit of cheese to the bread. It takes away the smell completely.
Absolutely love it. I bought a ton of coconut flour because found organic coconut flour super cheap and now using it for everything. I love the flavour. Made close to 100 naans and froze them 😀 (half garlic and half normal). Thanks Sahillll
Love this bread how many grams is 2 tablespoons ? Your almond bread is 30 grams I have tablespoons that are all different sizes ?
Sahil, I replaced one teasoon of coconut flour with psyllium husk powder and just used water instead of cream and it worked fine. Still too coconutty gor me though
Made the recipe, tonight, and used garlic/Parmesan infused olive oil. I could’ve added a wee bit more, I think, but it was tasty! I browned it on each side with kerrygold butter and topped it with some melted, shredded cheese. Yummm. So nice to have a biscuity / cornbready something on Keto! Thank you! I just love you and your wife and brother (the only family I remember seeing! <3 Kim
This was pretty good. I made a grilled cheese sandwich with it. Nice to have a sandwich again. Thanks.
You’re an angel, Sahil
Can you multiply this recipe for a small loaf and bake it in the oven? ?
Hello made my coconut bread took it out off the oven after allotted time and its sunk to half the size can you tell me why this has happened please
hey Jeff, that’s the issue with all Keto breads, they sink because they are heavy and there is no solution.
Wow, delicious with butter! My first bread in a week, so was really hungry for it. Thanks! ?
Mine turned out a little dry. I used butter instead of olive oil, could that have made the difference? I still love it though and it’s a great treat!
Cool it for 10-15 seconds less.
Hi. Pretty new to this and I loved the recipe . But what is the difference between net carbs and carbs? Thank YOU.
Thank you for this! I really miss the simplicity of sandwiches on a keto diet, and this was so quick to whip up. It tasted great and held together perfectly!
OMG Sahil I just made the best burger ever with this bread. Thank you very much. I love it.
Turned out amazing! Thank you so much for this recipe 🙂
The best coconut mug bread recipe I found. About the egg smell or taste, I don’t mind it, but I heard that if you pass the egg trough a sieve it reduces the egg smell and flavor, Grandma’s secret for a receipts she used to make. Thank you for the Trevor and the variation ideas.
Made this today I swapped coconut cream for regular cream added onion and garlic powder and came out great toasted it and ate as an open sandwhich with roast beef.
Thank you. This is a lifeline on my Keto diet! By far the closest thing to bread I have made( with coconut flour), and SO easy! Looking forward. everything I can do with it!!! Grilled cheese!
I just made this bread substituting the heavy cream for sour cream, simply because I’m out of heavy cream. I had to microwave about 40 seconds longer but it came out amazing and I used it as a burger bun. The bread was so tender and not at all eggy. Thank you Sahil!
Thank you! This will become a regular on my diet.
can i make it without whipping cream?
Love this!!! Thanks!
Your recipe is great. my fren introduce your video. you like to use simple method and ingredients. i want to keep some on the ingredients at office and make this mug bread..its really awesome. i thought coconut flour can be done without phsylium husk. i also love your keto nan bread. i love the taste to eat with egg curry. in fact i dont add any cream or coconut cream. thanks for sharing.
Oh my goodness!! Thank you so much! I can now have bread that I yearn for! I love it and I didn’t have the whipping cream so I did it with almond milk. I am about to binge on your site. Thank you again. Also can you make some sort of dessert this way as well? Xoxoxoxo
Yeah I think you can just use this recipe and add things like vanilla extract, stevia, cocoa powder, fresh berries and make your own mug bread desserts too.
I made this and when I take the bread out of the mug, I notice it’s kind of gray. Why is that happening? Yours looks so yellow but mine is yellow and then kind of gray.
Could be your flour perhaps or the baking soda/powder you are using.
Thank u so much!! For this yummy and easy mug bread
Can u tell me which yogurt is good for Keto which I can easily get in Pakistan
One more thing , I want to learn how to make Keto tea
I have no idea what brands of yogurt you get in Pakistan but you want just regular unflavoured, unsweetened full fat yogurt. You will need to read the nutrition label and stuff. As for tea, just make how you normally do and use CREAM instead of milk and it’s fine.
Thank you so much for this recipe! I added a bit of stevia and a dash of cinnamon the second time i made it. Works well for toasting and as a little something sweet when the craving hits.
Thanks for the quick and easy recipe. However, I think I’ll try to add a little coconut oil to try and moisten it after its done sitting.
Hi there, This recipe looks great! Is the nutrition information “per serving” for the whole mug loaf, or just two slices of it? Thank you
It’s for the whole mug loaf.
Hey love this bread. So quick and easy to make . I made it without the baking powder as i didn’t have any in the pantry and it still worked. Tastes great with lots of butter on top.
i love this as im awful at home baking and i need a bread substitute i also love that you give the nurtitional stuff so i can store it in my diet app.
I have one quick question can this be made with butter instead of whipping cream as i dont have any at hand for now… and also if yes can you provide the correct amount to use and the change to the nutritional information if possible, would love to know how you come to the nutritional calculations also
Hey Kevin you can just skip the cream and made it, you could use butter instead but you’ll have to calculate the nutrition info yourself. I have made a video on how to add your own custom foods in MFP and things like that. You can watch my Keto 101 series here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hH_l1vZts9k&list=PLjfmJ_cu2bt7wtZWj0FXCop8wjwwkYKKZ
Thank You This Really Hit The Spot. Toast Was Always My Go To Breakfast And I Was Jonesing For It (Craving), lol.
I thought it was delicious. Thank you. This recipe may have just kept me from cheating on my diet. I was craving bread.
This was lovely 😀 I’m working my way through your recipes and I really enjoy your youtube channel. Side note: I’ve noticed that your metric/us imperial conversion option appears to be broken right now. Just wanted to let you know!
Thanks Sarabeth, will look into that.
I used 1 T of coconut flour and 1 T of almond flour. The bread was lighter and fluffier and not dry like your recipe.
Your website has changed my life. Love all your recipes.
I added a little mozzarella cheese to the mix. It came out pretty good.
Might try cheddar cheese next time.
Lovely bread. Been following you buy first time to make anything. Maybe I can get my son to go keto with me. Bread was his sticking place. Love your style!
Hi there, just a coupke if questions.
Does this need to cool completely before removing from the mug. Also do you need to grease or spray the mug so that it doesn’t stick or does it simply not stick to the mug.
You don’t need to wait and you don’t need to grease it but sometimes things can stick depending on the mug you use. I’ve generally had no problem getting these out of the mugs. I do give it about a minute to cool down but not much longer than that.
Thank you very nuch for this esy and yummy recipe, Sahil. Loved it 🙂
Brother . . . GREAT alternative to the almond flour bread, and it uses less flour! We’ll definitely be using this in the future, especially since we can usually find coconut flour for cheaper and in more varieties. We also found we liked coconut flour in our homemade fathead pizza dough better than almond flour, so I think this will work well for us. Just used it to make some sausage & egg breakfast sandwiches for my wife and I. PERFECT!
Could you please tell me what’s the temperature at which this should be baked. New to baking… 🙂
Thanks in advance
This is a microwave recipe. There is no baking hence I’m not mentioned temperature anywhere. 🙂
Just made this for the first time, used almond milk instead of cream and put some Parmesan and thyme in with it, toasted on a skillet and served with fresh butter! – verdict – bit like a coconut macaroon muffin – need to tweak so its less heavy (for me) – it held together really well too – Awesome – thank you!
Tried it just now with homemade coconut flour and God !! … I’m in love !! 😀
Used regular malai and coconut milk as I didn’t had whipping cream. Still turned perfectly well..and for that eggy smell I think I’ll add some fresh garlic paste in the batter, to make a garlic coconut bread. Thank you. You’re awesome 😀
Can I use cream cheese instead of heavy cream?
Hi! First, thank you so much for this recipe! I’m new to Keto and this bread is great! Second, can this be made and stored? I don’t make it everyday, and so my cream goes bad before I can get more than a couple breads from it. Thank you!
Yeah you can make a batch of it and store in the fridge no problem.
Sahil, thank you so much for sharing your amazing recipes! This is the first keto bread I have tried and I love it! Is the cooking time to serving size a 1:1 ratio? I’m using a big mug and would love to double or triple the batch. Thank you!
Sahil, what is the setting for the microwave? High? Thanks!
Yes it’s on high.
Can I use butter instead of olive oil? If so, how much? A tablespoon as well?
Yes no problem. Same amount of butter as the oil.
Fantastic man, thanks! Made them like u sed, but added a dash of garlic powder. They taste great!
I put them on skillet in butter, toasted, then add cream cheese and flax seeds. Great breakfast. Hubby is amazed that i just made bread in bout 3 minutes
Are the calories and fat for the whole mug bread or just a slice?
Whole mug bread.
Thank you for the recipe. Mine came out brilliant.
How often can we have this mug bread.
You can eat it daily. If you counting macros then just figure it into the plan.
Hi Sahil. Just a question on tablespoon sizes in your recipes. Do you use American spoons or the larger European sized spoons?
Yeah so I have a set of measures that made in India. So not sure if they match USA or Europe but the TBSP is about 15grams/ml in weight volume approx. Obviously heavier items sometimes end up being about 20grams in weight.
The USA tablespoon is approx 15ml but the European one is 20ml. I have made some of this coconut bread using my European spoons and it hasn’t quite come out right. A bit dry as two (large) tablespoons of coconut flour is probably too much for the amount of liquid. I will have to try a set of American tablespoons. Note that it is only the tablespoon that is different in size.
Thank you for the awesome videos and recipes. As a prediabetic I have to change my diet and lifestyle, I am still learning the keto way but your YouTube videos have inspired and encouraged me to take control of my health. It’s actually so much fun its not even a chore anymore!
So glad to hear that!! Cheers!
Hello Keto Angel!
I never had the courage to start Keto until now that you make it seem more than possible. Already a fan of your work! Love from Canada
Hi can I steam it rather than microwave.? Thanks.
Yes should be ok
Hi! My husband and I are new to keto and l was already craving bread. Tried your coconut mug bread and such an easy recipe. I like your recipes as they’re so easy to make and will surely help me stick to my diet. Will be trying out variations after reading all the comments.
Lots of warm wishes from Dubai.
Hi! Tried your mug bread and it was really easy to make. Will be trying out variations after reading all the comments. Since my husband and I are new to keto I will be trying out your recipes as they are really great. Lots of warm wishes from Dubai.
Just had with wee bit of goat cheese and prosciutto, delicious!
Hi I tried this and it’s nice .
However I’ve put it into my carb /diet tracker. And it’s saying the net carbs is 17.8g for one mug
Most of that is fiber. We don’t count fiber, we count net carbs which is minus fiber.
You saved me ! I was so hungry and didn’t want to indulge in anything full of carbs.
this was so gooood!
I just found this recipe by chance on Google. I followed it to a T and it came out great! Had an egg and cheese sandwich and it was fantastic. Thanks for the detailed recipe.
I just made this mug cake….oh my goodness!!1. It is delicious!!! the texture, the taste, Yum! I followed the recipe to the tee. Can add pure vanilla essence for extra scent. Thank you, i can’t wait to try all other recipes <3.
