Sweet, Low Carb Quick Bread
Looking for something to brighten up a cold winters day? Are you in need of something tropical to get you excited for warm days to come? We have the recipe for you! Coconut caramel bread has it all. Seriously- it covers all the bases, satisfying any craving you may have! It is sweet yet has lots of veggies baked inside. It has tropical coconut flavors yet also has the warm taste of caramel. You can put the whole bread together in 15 minutes and, of course, it is low carb. Only 4 net carbs per serving! Yes, this bread has it all.
You may be wondering about the vegetable that we baked into this bread. Well, there are actually two! First, we used riced cauliflower as one of the main ingredients. The cauliflower in this recipe takes the place of flour and also adds a little moisture as well. In traditional baking, flour is often the main component of the baked good as it gives structure and strength to whatever you may be baking. Of course, a keto diet restricts the use of flour since it is very high in unwanted carbs. Cauliflower, however, can also give a baked good structure and strength! It is also so much healthier than almost any flour out there. With lots of fiber and B vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients, who wouldn’t want to eat a baked good made with cauliflower?!
Cauliflower does have a stronger taste that you may not automatically think of as conducive to baking something sweet. Yet the erythritol, vanilla, pumpkin and coconut topping completely masks that cauliflower taste, leaving you with a sweet, moist, caramely bread. It is a total win!
Speaking of pumpkin, that is the second vegetable that we have baked into this sweet, quick bread. Pumpkin has several jobs within this recipe, one of which is to add more moisture. A little pumpkin in any baked good will give it a creamy, soft texture that is simply irresistible. Pumpkin is also slightly sweet and has a caramel taste yet none of the carbs as found in a “normal” caramel sauce. It is also a great, healthy, keto-approved veggie! Vitamin A, antioxidants, beta-carotene and so much more are all readily available in pumpkin!
So yes, there are vegetables in this sweet bread but they are there for good reason and they make this dessert-style baked good extremely healthy. Make this recipe on a cold day to warm you up, on a hot day as a tropical, coco-nutty treat or on a regular old Tuesday as a fast way to do some healthy keto baking! Perfect for breakfast, lunch, dessert or even as a snack- it couldn’t be more amazing!
