Ever since I had my first coconut bread, or pan de coco, as they call it in Panama, I am obsessed with it!  While I was there, I had coconut bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every day. There’s nothing I love more than the subtle nutty aroma and the incredible smell of a freshly baked loaf of coconut bread! It reminds me of holidays, of wandering through the streets of Bocas del Toro, a bag of coconut bread in hand, on the way to the beach. When I found this recipe on Averie Cooks I knew that it was time to try to make it myself.

The addition of coconut milk does not make this a sweet loaf though. No, this Vegan Coconut Milk Sandwich Bread doesn’t have a very strong coconut flavour at all so you can even serve this to those, who are not too fond of coconut. What the coconut milk lends to this sandwich bread, is more a soft and moist texture along with a light sweetness and nuttiness.

We also add some oats to the bread dough which we soak in some hot coconut milk before we knead all the ingredients together. The oats add a certain heartiness to the vegan sandwich bread and give it a nice chewy texture. A few tablespoons of  Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil* instead of butter make this sandwich loaf extra healthy!

The bread dough is very easy to make. To help you with the shaping process of the dough I added a little picture guide:

Make the sandwich bread dough as described in the recipe and let it rise until doubled in size. Knead it for about 3 minutes and shape it into an oval (picture 1). Fold a third over the middle and seal it with the back of your hand. Do the same with the other half of the dough. Fold the dough in half and place the loaf with the seam down in your oiled baking pan. Push the dough down and into the corners and let it rise for the second time. The dough should not rise higher than an inch over the baking pan or it will collapse in the oven. So keep an eye on it!

I am sure you guys will love this Vegan Coconut Milk Sandwich Bread! It is a great vegan alternative to normal toast and makes such great sandwiches. Try it once and I am sure it will become a staple!

  • 1 cup coconut milk 250 ml
  • 1 cup old-fashioned whole rolled oats not quick cook or instant, 90g
  • 1/4 cup water lukewarm, 50 ml
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 250 g
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil canola or vegetable oil may be substitued, melted
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar packed
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast 7 g
  • 1 tsp of salt or to taste


  1. In a microwave-safe small bowl, heat the coconut milk until it just begins to boil.
  2. Add the oatmeal to the milk and stir to combine. Set the mixture aside and let cool until temperature reaches about 50 Celsius, that's 120 to 130F and stir in 1/4 cup of lukewarm tap water.
  3. Toss all the ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook and knead for 5 to 7 minutes on low speed, or until a moist, shaggy dough forms. The dough will be sticky, so try and resist the temptation to add additional flour, unless the dough does not come together at all. Or the other way round: if it's too dry, add a bit of water. Generally, it's better to go too wet than to dry.
  4. After kneading, turn the dough out into a large, greased bowl, cover with plasticwrap, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  5. Spray an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside.
  6. After the dough has doubled, punch it down, turn it out onto a floured surface and knead it for about 3 minutes.
  7. Shape the dough as shown in the blogpost and put it in your pan.
  8. Cover pan with plasticwrap, and allow dough to rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 60 minutes.
  9. In the last 10 minutes of rising, preheat oven to 350F, or 175 Celsius. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the bread is lightly golden and puffy. If you want, you can rotate the pan midway through baking.
  10. When tapped, bread should sound hollow and the internal temperature should reach 210F or 89 Celsius.
  11. Allow the bread to cool in pan for 5 to 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
  12. Note that the cooling process is very important sp try to not slice into warm bread.
  13. You can store the bread by wrapping a fully cooled loaf in cling film , and place it inside XXL Ziplock, where it stays fresh for about 5 days. The Coconut Sandwich Bread also freezes very well when placed in a freezer-safe airtight container or a ziplock.
