Coconut Cream Bread

This coconut cream bread recipe has the texture of regular bread without the added carbs. It is great for sandwiches and I eat it quite often for breakfast. I toast this in a pan rather than a toaster because it is so delicate.


1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon unflavored protein powder
1 tablespoons heavy cream
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten

In a bowl mix together the coconut flour, baking powder and the protein powder. Add the egg, melted butter and heavy cream. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until the mixture looks creamy. Microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds or until done. This makes a spongy soft bread.

    Hi Jay, I just found you via DJFoofie and I love your food
    Really enjoy your uTube videos. So nice to hang with someone
    Upbeat and happy. Atkins muffin in a minute, amazing. Will try
    The coconut bread next.

  3. Deb says:

    what size bowl…it looks like you need a flat bottom bowl about 5 inches in diameter?

  4. Jay says:

    Awesome! Sounds great as a pizza base, I am going to try that. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. Claire T says:

    I love this bread recipe, it’s the bread recipe I always return to, I love to use it as an individual pizza base. The only change I make is instead of protein powder I use ground almond meal & it turns out great.

  6. Jay says:

    Welcome Linda! Thank you so much for your kind words. I am happy to hear that you are enjoying my recipes:)

  7. Linda says:

    Jay, your recipes have really helped me stay on track and this recipe especially has been fun because it is so easy to take it in a few directions. I had a tablespoon or two of grated sharp cheddar for a cheesy taste, I add a tsp of flax meal as well sometimes for the extra fiber, I change it up with reg or vanilla protien powder to make it sweet or savory. It is a super bedtime snack if ihave had a lower carb day than ususal. Very awesome recipe. Found you on the ROKU channel, nice vids, thanks for sharing and helping with staying healthy and in control.

  8. Jay says:

    Thanks for taking the risk….lol. They are good:)

  9. Maria says:

    Just tried this recipe. Was skeptical. Wound up making six! It is wonderful!

  10. Crissy Young says:

    Is there a substitute for whey protien powder? I don’t have any.

  11. Jay says:

    Hi Erica, I have never tired it in an oven. If you do, please let me know how it turns out.

  12. Erica says:

    Hi Jay, I love your recipes, but I don’t have a microwave. Can I make this in the oven???

  13. Karen says:

    what is with the protein powder? hard to find, expensive, can I omit it?

  14. Jay says:

    Woohoo!! You guys are doing Awesome!! Keep it up. Thank you for commenting and sharing your success:)

  15. Renee says:

    You are an angel sent straight from Heaven. I failed at Atkin’s last year after only one month. I became bored with boiled eggs, grilled chicken breast, salads, etc. My entire family decided to give Atkin’s another go. We started January 12th and have all had great success. My daughter is down 6 lbs, my boyfriend is down 10 lbs and I am down 11 lbs. I have to give your wonderful recipes and positive attitude credit. We’ve already tried several of your recipes and have yet to find one we didn’t like. Keep up the awesome job and thanks for sharing you knowledge and encouragement!!!

  16. Jay says:

    Your welcome Paige, thanks for commenting and I am happy you enjoyed the bread. It’s one of my favorites!

  17. Jay says:

    Aww, welcome back! You wil ove this bread recipe: )

  18. Iva says:

    Hey Jay,

    I’ve kind of lost touch with you, but since cleaning up my foods, immediately thought of your website. This recipe sounds amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Paige Kittles says:

    Okay, so for round two I had to play around with it. I know my husband wouldn’t eat it bc of the slight aftertaste from the coconut flour.

    2 Tbsp melted butter
    1 egg, beaten
    1 Tbsp heavy cream
    3 Tbsp mashed sweet potatoes (they are low GI)
    1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp coconut flour
    2 Tbsp vanilla whey protein
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 Tbsp sugar free pancake syrup (Hungry Jack butter flavor-yum! OR 1 Tsp liquid sweetener

    Mix wet ingredients first then add dry ingredients. Pour into clean, presprayed bowl and cook about 2 minutes (maybe a little longer). If the bottom is still too moist but it otherwise has good form, flip onto a plate and go another 20 seconds or so.

    After cooling and slicing, I fried both sides of each slice in a teaspoon of butter. Serve with sugar free syrup as french toast or enjoy as a mildly sweet bread. YUMMO!

    For the record, my husband loved it and he does not eat anything with a ‘funny’ taste 🙂

    Thanks again Jay! This is life changing for me!

  20. Paige Kittles says:

    Oh how I wish I could upload a picture of my sandwich here. It was as pretty as it was tasty! Thank you so much for the recipe as this will now make it far more realistic to think I can stay low carb for life. The hardest part is having to prepare a full on meal everytime Im hungry but now I wont have to! Im going to make a large batch, preslice and freeze. Voila! Easy to toast and make a quick sandwich. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  21. Jay says:

    You may have a sensitivity to baking powder. So sorry to hear this:(

  22. Jay says:

    Yes, I have been making cakes with this recipe too. I am so happy to hear that you are enjoying this recipe.

  23. Marci says:

    Like the commenter before me, I made a little cake out of this by adding 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp erythritol & 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I topped it with some sugar free low carb cream cheese frosting. Genius!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  24. mark says:

    i made this exactly as you describe above but there is a nasty acidic aftertaste which is making it a bit unbearable, any idea what ingredient causes this? then I can try again with less of it

  25. Jay says:

    Hi, thank you for sharing all your wonderful tips for the coconut cream bread. You could also add sweetener to this bread recipe and make it into a delicious dessert. Enjoy~

  26. Momofthree says:

    Good Morning,

    I just finished making the bread. It was pretty good. I toasted it and spread cream cheese on it. I topped it with scrambled eggs, sliced turkey and of course cheese. It was delightful. Next time, I will add a dash of garlic pwdr, parm. cheese, and itallian herbs. I will use the cream cheese w/ chives for extra flavor. Yum.

  27. Kelly says:

    I love your recipes!. I signed up for your newsletter, but I haven’t been getting it lately.

  28. Evette says:

    I do not own a microwave. Can I bake this instead?

  29. Marlee says:

    I’m not sure about it as a sandwich bread but its an awesome dessert! I add a little vanilla and some Splenda brown suger to the batter and then a little sprinkle of cinnamon once its done cooking. I’ve also added just a few dark choc chips (pretty low in carbs). It makes a super good little cake. Takes care of a sweet tooth and its very filling. Yum!

  30. Di says:

    OMG!!!!!!!! Thank you thank you! This is PERFECT for several things. Excellent! My grandson even loves them. Wonderful… yay!

  31. Barbo Gold says:


    I want to make this and would like to know if you
    have ever doubled the recipe? Also what size container
    did you cook this in?


  32. Jay says:

    Sounds great, will have to try your way soon: )

  33. Storm'n says:

    Replace egg with two egg whites, butter with one tble spoon coconut oil, protein powder with flax seed meal (wheat free) heavy cream with 1/2 and 1/2. Total calories now only 204 vs 366 save 162 calories. Wow still really good !!

  34. Jay says:

    I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it 🙂 I think it will make a really great french toast, I will be trying that one really soon.

  35. Shakespeare72 says:

    Wow! This really hit the spot. The bread is light and fluffy, but firm enough that it could be used to support a sandwich. I toasted it in the skillet with a little butter then enjoyed it with my scrambled eggs. In fact, I ended up eating half of it before the eggs were ready.

    Used 3/4 tsp AMP60 vanilla protein powder instead of 1 tsp of unflavord and it gave it a very nice flavor.

    I wonder how this would be as French Toast 🙂 I’m feeling breakfast for dinner coming on…

  36. Renee Boisvert says:

    This is an AWEsome recipe! It is actually yummy, even without toasting! (Like cake)

  37. Jay says:

    Great! I am happy to hear that she enjoy it ~

  38. Phil says:

    My wife tried this with heavy whipping cream (we use to make butter with)and really like it, Thank you

  39. Jay says:

    Vanilla whey will work well. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it : )

  40. Laura says:

    I just tried this and it is wonderful!!! I didn’t have unflavored whey so I used vanilla and it is fantastic!!

  41. Jay says:

    The protein powder is necessary for this recipe. You could try it without the protein powder but I cannot say if the outcome will be similar. I use the Jay Rob brand which can be purchased here:

  42. Angel says:

    What can I use instead of protein powder? I have never purchased that before. What kind do you use? Also, what size of bowl is that? Thank you!

  43. Tracy says:

    I made the coconut cream bread this morning and it’s wonderful! Very light texture with a hint of coconut flavor. I made a breakfast sandwich with egg and avocado. I’ll be making this again. Thanks!

  44. Jay says:

    I suppose you can bake it, although I have never tried too. Microwaving was much quicker for me.

  45. Michelle says:

    Can you bake this instead of microwave?

  46. Jay says:

    It’s important to use heavy cream in this recipe, almond milk will not work.

  47. Queen Dee says:

    Yes, I followed exactly it didn’t seem like enough coconut flour. Will try again. I didn’t have cream so used almond milk. Also, i wanted to tell you that i enjoy your recipes it makes it easy to stay on my low carb journey.

  48. Jay says:

    Did you use the coconut flour?

  49. Queen Dee says:

    My bread came out more of an eggy texture that yours. Could it be because i used whey protien powder?
