Baking bread based on sweet almond flour is one of my favorite treats to keep in the freezer! They pair well with coffee or tea, are packed with protein and healthy fats, and are easy to warm up for busy workday mornings for breakfast. My Morning Glory Bread is so popular in my family that I’m consistently on the lookout for new flavors to make!

As a nutritionist, I’m always looking for ways to enjoy delicious baked goods in the healthiest way possible. Using almond flour as a base provides healthy fats and also increases the protein content! This coconut-flavored bread is also loaded with MCT oil from coconuts. MCT oil enables your body to produce ketones which are beneficial for cognitive health! This is a healthy bread cake recipe that you can enjoy any time of day.

How to make almond flour bread cookies

Here are the simple ingredients you will need:

  • Almond flour
  • Grated coconut
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Full fat cans of coconut milk
  • Egg
  • Coconut oil
  • Darling
  • Unsweetened grated coconut
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Almond Extract
  • Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. You start by combining the dry ingredients: flour, coconut flakes, baking soda and salt. We will also have separate bowls with wet ingredients: coconut milk, eggs, coconut oil and honey. Mix the wet and dry ingredients and pour into the loaf tin. Transfer to the oven!

This recipe comes with a prep time of about 10 minutes and a baking time of 40 minutes. Remove the shortbread from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Set the oven to bake! We will now make the glaze. Place coconut and coconut flakes on a baking sheet and bake until browned for 1-2 minutes. Meanwhile, stir the coconut milk, almond extract and powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Transfer the loaf cakes to the parchment paper. Drizzle the glaze over the top, then sprinkle with the toasted coconut.

Serve and Store

Once cool, cut and serve! Store in an airtight container in the fridge or counter for up to 5 days. If you want to freeze and enjoy it at a later date, wrap it in individual pieces first. Simply bring it to room temperature before enjoying. It will take about 25 minutes.
