Gluten-Free Meatloaf with Coconut Flour

Gluten-Free Meatloaf with Coconut Flour

Who doesn’t love meatloaf? Rich, savory and comforting, it’s been a family favorite for generations. Our Gluten-Free Meatloaf with Coconut Flour maintains all the best things you love about this dish, including the salty-sweet glazed ketchup on top. But we skip the cracker and cereal crumbs and add gluten-free coconut flour to help bind the loaf without adding grains.

Coconut flour, which is made from dried, ground coconut meat, is high absorbent. Adding two eggs, instead of the usual one, and milk or broth will keep the meatloaf moist. The coconut flour will also help retain the natural juices from the meat. Be sure to let your fully cooked meatloaf set for the suggested time so all those delicious juices don’t run out when you cut that first slice.
