- Combine water and yeast and let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes.
- Combine flour, coconut oil, sugar, salt, and yeast mixture in a bowl. Knead until silky-smooth, about 15 minutes. Place dough in a large, lightly-oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.
- Punch down dough and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a loaf and place into the prepared pan. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
- Uncover and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes for an Italian-style loaf or 45 minutes for a sandwich-style bread.
- Cook's Notes:
- If using a bread machine, add the dry ingredients, then start the machine on the dough cycle and slowly add coconut oil and the yeast mixture.
- If you are using a clay baker, soak the baker in water while preheating the oven. Bake the bread for 30 minutes with the cover on, and bake uncovered for 15 additional minutes to get a nice brown crust on top.
- I also use this recipe for naan (just roll out into 1/4-inch-thick discs and fry on a griddle) or pizza (skip the second rising and just roll it out). I use coconut oil or olive oil around the edge of the pizza dough to give the crust a nice golden brown.
- Use 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast and a bit more salt if using this recipe at a low altitude.

first bread recipe I've made at altitude that has actually turned out well!
We live at 6000 feet. Made the recipe as-is and it was ok. The dough was a bit hard to work with. The second time we added a tsp of the sugar to the yeast-water mixture. Much more satiny dough. ...
This was delicious! Super easy and so fun. I substituted canola oil as that was the only oil I had on hand. I will definitely make this again and grab some coconut oil for next time!
Great recipe. I live at 8500 ft. and this turned out wonderful. I did decrease the yeast by 1/2 tsp. and increased flour and liquid by 2 tbs.
