This Paleo Blackberry Coconut Soufflé Bake is light and creamy. It’s a great low-carb, high-protein breakfast or brunch, and it’s perfect for feeding a crowd!
Recently, I had a group of friends over for a weekend brunch. Before the brunch, I polled them about what they’d like me to make, and the results were unanimous. Everyone wanted something sweet—similar to a bread pudding. Requests also involved the pudding being gluten-free, low-carb, high-protein, and Paleo.
It was a tall order, but this Paleo-loving baker was up for a challenge. I knew exactly what would make their taste buds sing: Paleo Blackberry Coconut Soufflé Bake!
This Paleo bake is packed with healthy ingredients, including fresh eggs, coconut milk, almond flour, and coconut flour. It’s light, airy, and bursting with sweet blackberries. It’s creamy in the center (like a custard), and incredibly flavorful!
A few extra steps are required to prep this dish. But trust me, when you smell the rich, decadent flavors baking in the oven, the work is well worth it!
To make this Paleo Blackberry Coconut Soufflé Bake, you’ll need to start by separating the egg whites from the yolks in separate bowls. Then on the stove, heat the coconut milk and oil in a small pot over medium-low heat, and whisk in the flours until they become thick like a rue.
Next, beat the egg whites until they peak, and keep beating as you add the sugar. Set it aside as you prep the yolks. Whisk the yolks together in a bowl with the vanilla, salt, and flour mixture; it’ll get creamy like a custard.
At this point, gently fold the yolk mixture into the white mixture, along with shredded coconut and blackberries. Then transfer it to your prepared baking dish, and wait patiently as it bakes.
I served my brunch guests this Paleo Blackberry Coconut Soufflé Bake with a smorgasbord of optional toppings, such as powdered sugar, fresh berries, honey, maple syrup, and raw nuts. Everyone loved it, and I’m sure you will too!
