4 ingredient low carb bread made with coconut flour gelatin parsnips coconut oil

Thank you again for all the sweet words on Lori’s pregnancy journey. I am so happy for her and Gary. And Jax of course. Our dad loves to shop on Amazon and every now and then we get a surprise box in the mail. Yesterday Lori got a special delivery in the mail. Baby toys for baby M.  Gotta love grandparents!

Jax was a little confused on why we did not give him the toys. He sat there in the kitchen looking up at the counter as Lori and I unwrapped everything.  Don’t worry Jax, there will be plenty of toys for you too!

Oh boy was it hot yesterday. We took Jax to the park and only lasted about 10 minutes. All of us were sweating. Summer time is here in full force. Not complaining as I love the hot weather. I think that comes from growing up in south Florida. I love my sun and I know Lori does too! One thing that has been cooling us off lately is fresh fruit – mainly peaches and figs. Our top 2 favorite fruits.

And we’ve been playing around with some new recipes that will be coming to the blog soon. Today we are sharing one recipe that we randomly put together during our road trip to Duck Key on our vacation. A few of you mentioned that you wanted that recipe.  But… we did not write down exactly what we did, therefore we had to play around with some ideas and pray one would work!

Once we got home we were determined to figure out how to make that low-carb bread again. Well, lower in carbs than normal white processed bread 🙂

parsnip fries to make bread

The key ingredient of this bread recipe is plantains parsnips!!

We love parsnips, especially cooked up as fries! A favorite side dish to many of our dinners. See how we make parsnip fries here.

How to make low-carb, grain-free parsnip bread.

When discussing this recipe we knew the ingredients were short and simple.  We also knew that it was similar to our 3 ingredient plantain bread.

All you really need to make this low-carb is 4 main ingredients.  Parsnips, eggs, coconut flour and coconut oil.  This recipe makes a moist, dense bread.

We also played around with another version to make a lighter style of bread.

This one we took out the coconut oil and added in a nut butter. We used macadamia nut butter. Again you can use anything you want, even a seed butter would work.

Just see how easy it is to make! You will fall in love with this new bread! We sure have!

How to make low-carb grain-free bread recipe (2 recipes)

Quick and easy low-carb bread recipe. Made from just 4 simple ingredients. A soft, moist bread that taste amazing. Real food bread recipe. Paleo friendly.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 whole eggs (if small use 5)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 4oz cooked parsnips (about 200g raw)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (optional)

  2. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Place cooked parsnips, eggs and coconut flour in blender.
  4. Blend together.

  6. Continue to blend.
  7. Next add in coconut oil.
  8. Blend until smooth.
  9. Pour batter into a bread loaf (we used a 9×4 pan) or can use a 7-8 inch pan of choice. Or make mini breads in a muffin pan.
  10. Bake bread for about 22-25 minutes.

  • Serving Size: serves 2

Now we added in baking powder to the next recipe but again it is optional as well as the gelatin. We added gelatin in for the additional protein and gut healing properties. Plus, we like finding ways to get more gelatin into our diet besides our morning breakfast mush or sugar-free marshmallows.

Why use baking powder? It helps to lift the bread even more to create a lighter bread.

4 ingredient low carb bread made from parsnips coconut flour and nut butter

We got 4 slices of bread out of each recipe. Each slice of bread has 7 grams of carbs and 2 grams of fiber.

And made from just 4  real food ingredients, depending if you use gelatin and baking powder or not.

So go ahead and enjoy this bread guilt free with your favorite sandwich toppings.

Don’t parsnips have a slight turnip zing? How does that translate to the bread? You two must buy all the plantains and parsnips in your area!

purelytwins July 16, 2014 - 4:13 pm

Deana we like the taste, never has bothered us. The bread just tastes like parsnips.

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More July 16, 2014 - 11:49 am

Hmmm..I’m definitely intrigued! I LOVE the plantain bread. It’s been my favorite for pre-long run meals. I used half of it with tahini, avocado and eggs for an open-faced sandwich for dinner the night before, then the next morning I have the other half with almond butter & banana. It makes me feel like I’m eating how I would otherwise but with a gluten-free, grain-free option that my tummy will like. 🙂

Why aren’t your recipe instructions complete? It doesn’t say when to add the nut flour. And you don’t have coconut oil listed in the ingredients, so I had no idea how much to add. Hopefully it turns out! In the oven now. Also,I out it into the Vitamix and the ingredients would not blend after the initial blend. I had to stir in the gelatin and baking soda by hand because it was too thick in the blender. Once I added the coconut oil though it blended better. Hoping this turns out!

Reply
purelytwins July 21, 2014 - 8:53 am

we will update that recipe, the nut butter goes in with the eggs and parsnips part at the beginning. In the video we show all the steps too.

Reply
Raelyn July 22, 2014 - 1:50 pm

Thanks for the update! I don’t see a video on this page. Maybe because I’m using my iPad? One more suggestion…. I think the pan really needs to be greased (maybe with coconut oil) beforehand. My loaf stuck to the pan so I lost the bottom of it when I tried to get it out. Also, I used the gelatin and baking powder in my recipe. The bread definitely rose while it was in the oven, but it dropped as soon as I took it out and the bread was only maybe an inch thick? I’m not sure the baking powder made that much of a difference?

Reply
purelytwins July 22, 2014 - 3:42 pm

sorry that the video is not working for you. yes oiling the pan is fine to do to help with sticking. it is not a thick bread, it is more soft and dense

woah I can’t wait to make this!

how do you guys make your protein mush again? I forget! I want to try it!

Hey katie, sorry we missed this comment. We make our mush my adding in our protein powder into a small bowl and slowly add water until it is thick. We also add in some coconut oil.

Hello lovely ladies! I am wondering if this recipe could work with flax eggs to make it vegan? Thanks!

We haven’t tried that yet so unsure if it would. But if you try it, it might just be very dense and moist. It already is using eggs.
