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.

      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/

    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?

      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.

    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

      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.

      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.

    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!

    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!

    Can I use butter instead of olive oil? If so, how much? A tablespoon as well?

    Thank you!!

    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
