I know that finding the best bread recipe is not easy and you asked me how to to make a keto bread that’s actually edible and tastes good. If you are looking for a bread substitute that is low in carbs, gluten-free, great for sandwiches, you are in the right place.

Since I embarked on this journey, I tried to find the best low carb bread recipe, and after tons of baked almond flour bread, I’m sure I discovered the right one. This recipe I am sharing with you today does not taste eggy or fall apart quickly.

There are other fantastic bread recipes I created with almond flour on this blog and you seem to love the low carb bagels and the fastest one, 90-second bread (can be made with coconut flour too.). Both of these are super quick to make and require ingredients that are easy to find and a staple in every keto kitchen.

To replicate the texture of real bread and make it low carb I used almond flour and psyllium husk powder.

Most keto recipes online use xanthan gum or cream of tartar. I tried all the versions, and I got the best result using psyllium husks powder. Each slice is delicate and airy, just like real bread. This is a classic keto loaf of bread that rises very well; it’s fluffy and delicious without the unwanted carbs and gluten.

Watch the video below to see how easy is to prepare this almond flour bread recipe:

What is a Keto Bread?

Keto bread is a substitute for the high-carb bread that is made using low carb ingredients. You’ll need almond flour and psyllium husk powder instead of the wheat flour. To make a low carb bread, we’ll use healthy fats such as coconut oil, butter or olive oil. This keto bread recipe can be sliced as regular bread and tastes fantastic. You can also add any spices you like.

How To Make Fantastic Keto Bread

How do you make this recipe? We need only 5 low carb ingredients and a few others such as condiments and baking powder.

The five ingredients in this keto bread recipe consist of almond flour, whole eggs, psyllium husk powder, melted butter, and coconut oil. There’s also a touch of salt, baking powder and stevia drops needed in this recipe.

The ingredients are common, and you can find most of them at any grocery store. I think you can get almond flour cheaper on Amazon. I’m always on the quest of finding low carb flours on sale. In the recipe card below, I linked the products I use.

The steps for making this bread are very easy to follow:

  1. Beat the eggs with a hand mixer for about 2-3 minutes or until fluffy. Add the melted coconut oil and butter and continue mixing.
  2. Combine the wet and the dry ingredients.
  3. Transfer the dough mixture into a greased loaf pan, and bake for about 45-50 minutes. Enjoy!

Tips to Make the Perfect Keto Bread?

There are many keto bread recipes online, but none of them tells you all the tips to get the perfect texture. I will tell you a few secrets on how to get a fantastic low carb bread every time that you can slice.

Bake the Keto Bread Long Enough

If your bread is wet inside and tastes eggy, it’s probably because it needs to be baked for longer. Always keep an eye on the bread check with a toothpick to ensure that it’s baked well and all the moisture is gone.

That’s why we cook it for a longer time at a petty low temperature. To avoid this common mistake and get that bread perfectly cooked in the middle, continue baking even after the loop looks golden.

Use Room Temperature Eggs

It seems that using room temperature eggs significantly reduce the eggy taste. The fastest way to bring eggs at room temperature is to put the eggs into a bowl and add warm ( not hot ) water

Cool Down on a Rack Before Slicing

This way the bread will cool down evenly without being moist at the bottom, and you’ll end up having perfect bread slices.

Use Refined Coconut Oil

I tried to make keto bread in the past with cold pressed (virgin) coconut oil, and it gives the bread a coconut flavor that I am not a huge fan of. To avoid the specific coconut taste, I recommend using flavorless refined coconut oil.

How many servings are in this keto bread recipe?

I love to cut my keto bread in about 20 slices, and the nutritional facts listed above the recipe are for one slice. So if you decide to make a keto sandwich and use 2 bread slices, you’ll need to multiply with 2.

Is this Bread Gluten-Free?

This bread recipe is entirely gluten-free because we are not using any wheat flour. Make sure if you are using baking powder to choose one that’s labeled as gluten-free.

Is this Keto Bread Paleo or Dairy-Free?

If you are following a paleo diet, there is a way to transform the keto bread recipe into a paleo compliant one.

All you have to do is to replace the quantity of butter with the same amount of olive oil. You can also use refined coconut oil (because it has no taste) instead of the butter. That way you get the best paleo bread that is also a dairy free bread.

Can I Substitute Almond Flour With Coconut Flour?

Yes, that’s possible to replace almond flour with coconut flour. Although the texture will be a little different, it’s worth a try.

As you may know coconut flour absorbs liquids pretty well, so instead of 2 cups of almond flour/ almond meal use only 1/2 cup coconut flour. Pay attention to the consistency of the batter and if you find it a little too thick add a bit more water.

How Many Carbs Are in The Keto Bread?

Each slice of this ketogenic bread has only 2g net carbs.

If you are wondering where those carbs come from, they come from the almond flour and the psyllium husk powder. Even eggs have a trace of carbs in them.

To figure out the net carbs content in the bread all you have to do is to subtract the fiber content from the total carbs content.

Why Is This The Most Popular Low Carb Keto Bread recipe On The Internet?

This keto bread is so popular because of so many reasons. It has no eggy taste and an incredible texture!

I absolutely love how this bread turned out. The texture is fantastic, and there’s no eggy taste (in my opinion) if you cook it the right way.

If you are just switching to a ketogenic diet from a high carb diet, you’ll find out that’s pretty hard to find a good bread recipe to kill carb cravings. But, that’s no impossible.

With this low carb recipe, you’ll enjoy a good slice of carb free keto bread that fits well your keto macros.

There are a few brands on the market that sell low carb bread, but some of them use non-approved keto ingredients. This bread is perfect for the Atkins diet, and it’s a cheaper low carb bread alternative.

Can You Put It in a Bread Machine?

If you have a bread making machine, you should definitely try the keto bread using the bread machine. It will be way easier to make low carb bread.

One of our readers suggested adding one and a half tsp yeast and one-half tsp of sugar (to activate the yeast). Mix the ingredients before adding them into the bread machine and use regular quick bake. The bread might not rise as much as the one baked in the oven but it will still smell and taste amazing.

Other Easy Low Carb Bread Recipes You Might Love

  • 90-second bread – This is a super popular easy keto bread that is ready in 90 seconds. Some call it mug bread because all you have to do is to mix all the ingredients in a mug and microwave it for 90 seconds. It tastes excellent toasted in some butter, and you can use either coconut or almond flour. I love both versions.
  • Keto Bread Buns – These hamburger buns are great for burgers and super easy to make. I usually make them when we want to have keto burgers. You’ll need almond flour and psyllium husk powder. They are super fluffy and versatile.
  • Oopsie bread / Cloud Bread – The oopsie bread or cloud bread is one of those bread replacements that need no low carb flours. So, if you are looking for a cheap low carb bread recipe that still tastes good use my cloud bread recipe.
  • Keto Bagels – One of my favorite low carb bread recipes, it has no eggy taste, and it’s incredibly delicious. The texture is fantastic, and they are freezer friendly. These keto bagels are made from the famous fat head dough. You’ll instantly love them.

Notes

  1. Make sure you use the psyllium husks powder I linked in the ingredients list. I noticed that other brands make my bread purple or green. 
  2. Use room temperature eggs to reduce the eggy taste.
  3. Cook the bread long enough. It’s better to overcook the keto bread loaf, rather than undercook it. If the bread is moist inside and tastes eggy, it probably needs to be cooked for longer.
  4. Add a few stevia drops, not to sweeten the bread but to reduce the eggy taste.

  1. I'm wondering, instead of the psyllium husks powder, would it work just as well to use either ground chia seeds? Or Garden of Life Raw Fiber? GOL Raw Fiber is a blend of many sprouted grains.

    1. 5 stars
      So, I gave it a go and tweaked a little by adding lots of seeds and sundried tomato. I’m not sure how it compares to others, but I noticed:
      1. It had no eggy flavour at all – I did the room temp thing and added some (granulated) stevia
      2. The texture was more eggy than I expected- like a light omelette but a tad firmer
      3. It handled my extra additions well in terms of the seeds and tomato being well-distributed through the loaf
      Next time, I’m going to try to reduce the egg and use flaxseed and maybe increase the baking soda, to aim for a heavier bread.
      If anyone has any tips, I’d be glad to hear them but grateful for this recipe getting me started on a keto / gluten-free loaf!

  2. At first you say the recipe call for Almond FLOUR, but then, you talk about using Almond MEAL.
    Please let us know which we are to use, thank you.

  3. Would love to make this in my bread machine. Where can I find the directions for using my machine (i.e., same ingredients, cook time, etc)? Thank you.

  4. Hi I’m really trying to lose weight on the keto diet and am just starting out with this diet having lost 6lbs so far and want to carry on as I really do love this diet and find this is the best diet I’ve ever done or found a as it’s not really like a diet.its just brilliant.and every things.just great and fits so much.around it so I think it’s the best I’ve tried.as I’m never hungry all the time now as you get so much choice with it.and is never mundane it’s a really good and nice diet to do and you don’t find it.a real hardship to do it’s realitively pretty much simple to do.as with my other diet plans. I’ll definitely say goodbye to that regime.as it was nothing but hell on earth to do.so restrictive and so only thing it did do is start to make you constantly hungry and obsessing about food all the while wondering when you’re next meal is coming and you would want anything.where in the end you could not stick to it.as i found it very very hard to stick to.and just built you up to fail at it.and fail you did do on this diet.as that’s how that diet was designed to do.and this diet only builds bad eating habits in the long run.so I’m afraid to say that I won’t be shedding any more tears over that diet that diet.that diet is well and truly over now.and hello keto./as this diet is by far the best I’ve ever tried to do and eating is a absolute pleasure. There just no restrictions on it and no more hunger.as you just never think about food anymore.its just brilliant.to do I find it and so does my husband.we find it just brilliant to do and who ever in vented that diet is an absolute shear genius.thats what we think. We find it a real bonus not to keep thinking about food all the while.but yes we have got weight to lose but it’s gonna be a hell of a lot easier to do.than it used to be or before.as in the old days it was just shear hell for me to do or my husband as he absolutely hated all those other torturous diets.as he says this is by far the best one that he’s ever done or saw.he has been able to stick to it.as there’s just no hardship for us or to this diet and would wholeheartedly recommend this diet to anyone that wants a diet to do as it’s just the best.anyway thank you bye take care.

  5. Hi. How and what, if anything, should I adjust to try to make this in a bread machine?
    Your recipe looks simple and good with just the almond flour.
    I’ve had 0 success with the bread machine so far…expensive Cuisinart thing that’s just made soggy flat bricks and wasted my almond flour no matter what I try. I’m getting ready to send it back to Amazon.

  6. The Best Keto Bread says it has 139kcal. Using a converter, that means 139,000 calories! That hardly seems right. Please clarify.

  7. Hi Ioana,

    I have tried your brownie’s recipe twice already, as the family really loved them :)!!!
    I also tried the almond flour buns, however I am still getting the almond taste.

    I want to try this bread recipe now, however I am not sure if by replacing almond flour with coconut flour, will it taste more like coconut 🙂 ?
    Are there any way to make the almond taste less tense? Maybe try different almond flour brands?

    Thank you for making my keto diet a happy ride with your recipes :). Keep it up!

    1. Hi! I’m thrilled you all liked my keto brownies recipes. You could try another almond flour brand, maybe get some blanched almond flour. Completely replacing the coconut flour in this recipe will make it taste coconutty for sure. Maybe you could add some spices. Hopefully, it will turn out perfect for you!
