Coconut Bread Stuffing

Coconut bread stuffing

This is a really easy recipe for classic bread stuffing, but with a twist! Make it into a Candida diet-friendly recipe by using a loaf of our gluten-free Coconut Bread instead of regular bread.

It has a perfect blend of savory herbs, vegetables and bread cubes, creating that traditional flavor you’ve come to know. If you make coconut bread regularly, as many Candida dieters do, then you might have already prepared one of the main ingredients.

If you haven’t got into the habit of baking coconut bread regularly, give it a try! It’s a wonderfully tasty, low-carb alternative to regular bread. It’s completely gluten-free and free of added sugars, and packs a much more powerful nutritional punch than your regular store-bought loaf.

This Coconut Bread Stuffing is the perfect complement to our Roast Turkey with Sage Pesto. Are you ready to start a new, healthy tradition for your holiday dinners? Your family will find it filling and satisfying, and you’ll all feel much healthier the next day. The kids might not even realize what they’re eating!
