Anti-Inflammatory Bread: Coconut, Lime & Turmeric Loaf

close up of anti-inflammatory bread loaf


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1.5 cups buckwheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • A good pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Start by pre-heating the oven to 350 degrees F/ 180 C and line a loaf pan with baking (parchment) paper.
  2. Now blend the milk, syrup, coconut flakes, vanilla, and lime until the coconut flakes are blended down to being very small. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, turmeric powder, pepper and cinnamon. Now start adding the wet mixture a bit at a time, until it forms a thick batter and then transfer this to the loaf tin.
  4. Sprinkle with a little extra coconut, and optionally some ginger powder too, and then bake for 45-50 minutes, or until it’s crisp on top and a knife put into the middle comes out clean.
  5. Allow to cool for 5-10 mins and then remove from the tin and cool completely.
  6. Serve with coconut cream, or butter, or eat as it is.

This anti-inflammatory bread will store in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container, but like all bread, is best eaten fresh out of the oven!   With zero nuts, it also makes a brilliant snack for school lunchboxes!

      With all matters relating to a diagnosed condition, you need to speak to your physician with questions.

        Hi ROSS,
        I am already a vegan need to get the right everyday meal plan down to a science. My son is high functioning Autism and he loves sweets. He has BRADYCADIA which I have managed through good supplements to keep his heart at 50/55 . But it drops sometimes. We only eat non gmo foods except for restaurants which I try to go to sustainable places. Can your program help him with gluten free options and myself as I approach 60. Everyone saids i look 40-45 . I put on 30 pounds after COVID . At 58 yrs. after being 130 pds until now. Lost 10 after getting really sick . Possible from VAXX shedding. My veins are bulging . Really need a everyday non boring regime to stay on track and reverse some issues probably autoimmune that I am not aware of..
        Can you give some insight??? Thank you for your response!!!

    I can’t eat buckwheat – it bothers my stomach. Can I use sprouted spelt flour? Or oat flour?
    Thanks, Kathy


    Hi Ross thanks for this amazing recipe for the anti-inflammatory, coconut, lime and turmeric bread.
    I have the same question as Charmaine about baking soda – it’s mentioned in the instructions but not in the list of ingredients.
    Is the baking soda meant to be in the list of ingredients?
    Thanks for your help. Katie

      Ignore – not needed. It was in, then I made without – made no difference so I took it out!

    Bean soup is delicious, I just made it and loved it. Added some slightly steamed broccoli to it for texture.

    As someone else asked, the ingredients list does not list baking soda but the instructions mention using it. How much baking soda? I cant wait to try this bread! thanks so much.

    Hi Ross thanks for this recipe – it looks amazing but I notice there’s no baking soda mentioned in the list of ingredients. However, the instructions mention both baking powder and baking soda.

    Is there any baking soda needed in this recipe please – and how much – thanks. I’m all ready to make this bread, but holding off for your response.

    Many thanks, again.

    Please, please could you add metric measurements to your recipes? For us in the UK/EU cups are just so vague.
    Are coconut flakes in Oz what we call shredded coconut?
    Thank you

      Mine are coconut flakes from Woolies!

      Google will translate the other measurements for you – or just have measuring cups on hand. They’re what I use to cook with and make it so easy!

    Hi Ross,
    in the ingredients it doesn´t say baking soda, but in the recipe it mentions it. Which is correct please?

    Thanks for your time.
