KETO BREAD | LOW CARB BREAD RECIPE
The first thing every person new to eating low-carb wants is to find dessert and Keto bread options they love. It’s an awesome idea to be prepared and to have these recipes on hand for when the cravings turn to temptations. But, it can be tough to find a bread recipe that actually turn out like they’re supposed to.

WHAT MAKES THIS KETO BREAD RECIPE AWESOME?
I find myself disappointed often when I try Keto bread recipes. Not because I have the bar for bread set too high, but because I find most of the Keto friendly bread recipes I try don’t end up like the recipe says they will.

So when I started out making this gluten free almond flour bread, I knew I wanted to test it over and over again before I put it out here for your guys to make too.

When I finished creating and testing this recipe myself, I had several members from that group test out this bread to see what they thought before I posted the recipe here and it was a hit!

WHAT IS THE TEXTURE OF THIS KETO BREAD LIKE?
The problem with most keto breads is that they are either taste like egg, or that they don’t hold together. This is as close as you will come to a Keto white bread. I struggled to find a gluten free ketogenic recipe that made a good slice of bread, but didn’t taste like you were eating a handful of raw egg. Finally, it was the inclusion of chia seeds that helped the bread gel together without over-reliance on the eggs.

In this recipe, chia seeds are NOT optional. In fact, in all of my keto baking recipes, if I ask you to use chia seeds, they usually serve a function.

If you have a picky eater, or someone with sensory issues, consider grinding the chia seeds before adding to the keto friendly dough. You can use black chia seeds or white chia seeds (easier to hide in the bread). The chia seeds add a pleasant, crunchy texture.

WHAT IS KETO BREAD MADE OF?
Not all keto breads are made with the same ingredients, so it’s hard to give you a universal answer. However, I can tell you what ingredients are in my low carb bread:
HOW TO MAKE KETO BREAD
Step One: Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 4-cup loaf pan (8 x 4 inch) and set aside. Do not use olive oil. It will alter the taste of your keto bread.

Step 2: Mix dry ingredients in a bowl with egg and other ingredients and stir until the batter is well mixed and not lumpy. If using a food processor, be careful not to over mix.

Step 3: Pour dough into the greased loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes. Allow the bread to rest in the pan for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Remove and place on a rack to fully cool it. If you just can’t wait for it, get out some butter and have at it!

WHAT BREAD CAN YOU EAT ON THE KETO DIET?
Alternative Flours. You can enjoy breads made with almond flour and coconut flour. Those are the most popular for first starting to swap out regular flour. This Keto bread recipe is made with almond flour.
Net Carbs. Per slice, this recipe has 5 net carbs. Net carbs are the carb count minus the fiber count, making it perfect for a low-carb or keto diet. You can buy both almond and coconut flour in most grocery stores right next to AP flour.
Make it. My keto friendly bread is very much like regular bread and holds its shape well without being dry. It’s great by itself, slathered in butter, as toast, or as sandwich bread. A couple of the testers not only toasted it but cut it up into cubes and baked it for croutons and liked the way those turned out well too. I plan to try to make grilled cheese out of it in my air fryer one day soon.
Store Bought. If you just can’t even deal with making your own keto bread, this is the brand I’ve tried that comes closest to real bread for me.
Have fun. The biggest part of baking for me is having fun! Bring in the kids or spouse to help you bake this bread.
HOW DO YOU STORE KETO BREAD?
Parchment Paper. Keto bread doesn’t last quite as long as the regular store-bought bread you may be used to. So if you plan on eating the whole loaf in a few days, I would suggest wrapping in parchment paper once completely cooled.
Freezing. Avoid storing inside anything that retains moisture. If you don’t think you’ll eat this bread recipe fast enough, you can absolutely freeze this keto bread. If you choose to try freezing this, slice up the bread, and freeze flat so that you can remove one slice at a time if needed.
TIPS AND TRICKS TO MAKING LOW CARB BREAD:
If you have a picky eater, or someone with sensory issues, consider grinding the chia seeds.
Do not even THINK of omitting the chia seeds, nor of subbing coconut flour for almond flour. The chia seeds hold the bread dough together. Almond flour and coconut flour are NOT interchangeable.
Let the bread cool thoroughly. Most almond flour products don’t hold together that well when steaming hot.
I’ve been told this makes great french toast. But not as good as white bread. So don’t try it fresh out of the oven. Wait until the next day to try.
If you want to try store-bought keto bread, my favorite is sola bread.
We all know that Macadamia nuts are low in carbs, but don’t think about adding them to this bread. It wouldn’t end well.
Need Keto Buns? Cut into slices, toast, and voila! Keto buns.
I tested this recipe with baking soda, but you can try extra baking powder. Three times the normal amount of baking powder is needed for replacement. Take note that it may cause the recipe to taste slightly bitter.
Some breads use Xanthan Gum but we wanted to keep ours with as few ingreeients as possible.
Sprinkle Sesame Seeds or Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on top for a little extra flair!

All in all, I’m happy with how this Keto Bread turned out, and am excited to have a recipe on hand that I can use over and over again! I wanted to make it easy for you to enjoy a Keto lifestyle with the Best Keto Bread recipe.

Looking for an easy Keto Bread recipe that actually turns out like real bread? This Keto Bread is simple to make, and is delicious! No eggy taste, just great keto bread.
Ingredients
7 (7) Eggs
4 cup (116 g) Superfine Almond Flour
1/5 cup (89 g) Black Chia Seeds, (white if you can get them or black if you can’t)
1/7 cup (67.5 g) Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/7 cup (54.5 g) Coconut Oil or Melted Butter
5 teaspoons (2 teaspoons) Baking Soda
1/5 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) Kosher Salt
Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Grease a 7-cup loaf pan (8 x 4 inch) and set aside. Do not use a larger loaf pan as the bread will be very flat. You might choose to bake it in two mini pans if you want your bread to rise more.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir until the batter is well mixed and not lumpy.
Pour into the greased loaf pan and bake for 30 minutes. Allow the bread to rest in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove and place on a rack to fully cool it. If you just can’t wait for it, get out some butter and have at it!
If you have a picky eater, or someone with sensory issues, consider grinding the chia seeds.
In the photo, I’ve used white chia seeds. In the video, I used black chia seeds so you can see how the two turn out differently.
Do not even THINK of omitting the chia seeds, nor of subbing coconut flour for almond flour. The chia seeds hold the bread together. Almond flour and coconut flour are NOT interchangeable.
Let the bread cool thoroughly. Most almond flour products don’t hold together that well when steaming hot.
If you choose to try freezing this, slice up the bread, and freeze flat so that you can remove one slice at a time if needed.
If you want to try store-bought keto bread, my favorite is sola bread.
