This Paleo Yeast Bread makes about 8 servings.
Approximate prep and bake time: 1 hour
3/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs ground flaxseed
2 tsp honey
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 eggs, room temperature
1/2 ripe banana, mashed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Put the honey and yeast in a mixing bowl with 1/2 cup warm water. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes until the yeast mixture is bubbly.
Add the coconut flour, flax, baking powder, and salt. Mix with a paddle attachment or a spatula until well combined and then add the eggs and mashed banana.
Blend until you have a smooth dough. Turn it onto a clean surface and knead for 5 minutes. Shape the loaf however you like and lay it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Slash the top if you want it to look more like a traditional rustic loaf.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
If you want a nicely browned top, preheat your oven’s broiler and insert the pan for 3-4 minutes, watching it the entire time. Remove when you have the desired color.
Allow to cool completely before slicing.
