Light and moist sweet potato bread, made with coconut flour, and bursting with fall flavors!
Ingredients
  • ½ cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Cloves
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Cooked & Mashed Sweet Potato or Yam (about 1 large or 2 small)*
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • ⅓ cup (or ½ cup) Maple Syrup**
  • 3 Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil (measure in melted state)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8.5x4.5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and line with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk to combine Coconut Flour, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Salt. Set aside.
  3. In another large mixing bowl, whisk Eggs. Add in Mashed Sweet Potato/Yam, Maple Syrup, Coconut Oil, and Vanilla, and whisk very well to combine. There may be some small lumps from the sweet potato, and this is ok.
  4. Pour dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients, and stir well to combine.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan, and smooth out the top with a spoon or knife.
  6. Bake for 38-42 minutes, uncovered, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached.
  7. Allow bread to cool in the pan, on a wire rack for about 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Carefully peel away the wax paper before slicing.
  9. Makes 1 loaf.
  10. Store bread in a tightly sealed container, in the refrigerator, for up to 1 week. Bread freezes well, in a ziplock freezer bag, up to 3 months.
Notes
*A darker/redder sweet potato, such as Jewel or Garnet will result in a sweeter, more flavorful bread.

**If the sweet potato you use turns out to be not as sweet in flavor as you'd like, simply increase the amount of maple syrup from ⅓ cup to ½ cup to give the bread a slightly sweeter flavor.
