The keto bread

Finding it hard to give up bread? This keto bread will make your life much easier, the best low carb bread on the internet made with almond flour.
Keto bread is a mixture of almond flour (or coconut flour), eggs, healthy fats and xanthan gum. It resembles normal wheat bread in texture but has about 20 times fewer carbs than regular bread.

  • 1 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Erythritol(optional)
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder.

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. Whisk in the eggs
  3. Melt butter, add to mixture and whisk
  4. Divide mixture equally into 6 parts, place into a Muffin Top pan or equivalent
  5. Bake for 12-17 minutes at 350 degrees (varies by oven, watch the first time)
  6. Let cool on a wire rack

How much carbs does the keto bread contain?
The keto bread contains 2 net carbs per bun (a similar bun of regular bread may contain about 20 grams of carbs). This makes it a decent option on a ketogenic diet. Expand the nutrition tab above for the full nutrition facts.

Can I substitute ingredients?
In all baking, and especially in low-carb baking, the ingredients and amounts used are important. The eggs and ground psyllium husk are hard to replace in this recipe.

If you don't like almond flour or if you have an allergy, you can make this recipe with coconut flour instead. Substitute the amount of almond flour for a third as much of coconut flour and double the number of egg whites.

For a different look and some crunch, sprinkle seeds on the buns before you pop them into the oven – poppy seeds, sesame seeds or why not some salt flakes and herbs?

Flavor your bread with your favorite seasoning to make them perfect for what ever you're serving them with. You can use garlic powder, crushed caraway seeds or your homemade bread seasoning.

Keto Bakers Expert Tips
Please make sure your eggs are at room temperature before you attempt this recipe. This will reduce the likelihood of the bread tasting eggy. If you keep your eggs in the fridge, no worries. Just pop them into a bowl of hot tap water for 3 minutes.

Butter and Coconut Oil
If your butter is at room temperature, skip this step. If you keep your butter in the fridge, then this step is for you!

Cut the butter up and place in a small saucepan over low heat. As soon as you see the butter begin to melt, take it off the heat and just let it sit. You don't want the butter to be hot, because this might cook the eggs once you combine them. Once the butter and coconut oil are melted, slowly stream into the eggs while mixing on low.

Dry Ingredients
Mix the almond flour with the xanthan gum, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl until well combined. Little by little, add it to the egg mixture until very thick.

Oven Tips
Set your fan forced oven to 180 C (355 F) and wait till it’s fully heated. If you have a convection oven, drop the temperature by 5 C (20 F). If you are using a glass loaf pan, also reduce the temperature. (Glass retains heat longer).

I always set my timer for 10 minutes less than the recipe’s time because all ovens are different. Make sure to line your baking pan with baking paper if you are not using a silicone tray. Smooth out the top surface of the bread with a spatula or bowl scraper. This helps keep the bread together whilst in the oven.
Once small cracks appear on the top and the bread turns a golden brown colour, test with a toothpick or bamboo skewer right into the centre of the bread. If it comes out clean, the bread it is done. If not, you can add an extra 10 minutes and check it again.

Cooling Tips
Let the bread cool on a cooling rack so that all sides cool equally. Cooling it on a bread rack will significantly reduce the eggy taste also. Sometimes if you let it sit on a normal bench top or chopping board, the bottom section of the bread will turn a different colour.

I Don't Have Xanthan Gum, What Can I Use Instead?
Gelatine Powder - Use 1 teaspoonGuar Gum - Use 1 teaspoonGround Chia Seeds - Use 1 TablespoonPsyllium Husk Powder - Use 1 TablespoonOmit Xanthan Gum- Still gets a good result.
How Do I Store Keto Bread?

I usually slice it up, then place the sliced pieces into 2 plastic containers. Keep 1 container in the fridge and 1 container in the freezer for next week.

Can I Make This In A Bread Machine?
Here are some tips when it comes to making this almond flour bread in a bread machine:
  • Mix the ingredients in a bowl before adding to the bread maker
  • Set the loaf size to medium.
  • Set the crust to light.
  • Use the regular wheat bread setting.
