Here is the mouthwatering, gluten & dairy-free coconut lime bread:
- 2 eggs (room temperature)
- ¾ cup tapioca starch
- 1 cup of coconut sugar
- 1 & 1/2 cups flaked coconut
- 6 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 & 1/4 cups coconut milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 & 1/3 cup finely ground almond flour

Lime glaze ingredients:
- 1 cup powdered sugar, (sugar-free option bellow)
- 2–3 tbsp fresh lime juice
- zest from 1/3 of a lime
*Note for sugar-free option, you need to blend 4 tsp of stevia with 2 cups of potato or arrowroot starch.
At first, preheat your oven to 350 °F (180°C). In the meantime, grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan with coconut oil. Then, in a medium bowl add the coconut milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and lime zest. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
Using a mixer on low speed, combine the almond flour, flaked coconut, coconut sugar, tapioca starch, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
Remaining on low speed, pour in the egg mixture and mix until perfectly combined. Now, add coconut oil, and mix again.
Pour the batter into your loaf pan, and bake for 60-75 minutes, or when a toothpick from the bread comes out clean. Once the bread is cooled, prepare the lime glaze.
Lime Glaze Preparation:
In a small bowl, mix the lime juice with the powdered sugar. Lastly, drizzle the glaze over the bread and sprinkle it with lime zest. Enjoy!
