Dr Jockers Comments:
Bread is one of our greatest comfort foods but also one of the most inflammatory foods we can consume. This is because most of the bread on the market contains gluten and they are also very high carbohydrates. This recipe is loaded with healthy fats, clean proteins and great prebiotic fibers.
Coconut flour is a preferred flour as it is low in carbohydrates, hypoallergenic (unlike almond flour which many individuals have food sensitivities too) and full of healthy pre-biotic fibers that nourish the beneficial microflora.
In general, this recipe is low-carb although adding the honey would bump up carb content. If you are really focused on weight loss and/or reducing inflammation than I wouldn’t use honey very often. If you are making this for a special occasion and want to impress, put the honey in there!
This is a fantastic bread to make on occasion so you can enjoy your favorite comfort food in a much healthier way.
