This keto bread is excellent toasted with butter on top, holds up well, and it’s made with almond flour. It has no eggy taste and each slice has only 2g net carbs for a slice.
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.

Tips to Make the Perfect Bread & FAQ
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 reduces 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?

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.

- In a bowl crack the eggs and beat with a hand mixer for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the melted coconut oil and butter and mix for 1 minute.
- Mix in the almond flour, psyllium husks powder, baking powder, salt and stevia drops (optional) until all the ingredients are well combined.
- Transfer the dough mixture into a greased 8.5 x 4.5-inch loaf pan.
- Bake for about 50 minutes until it gets a nice golden brown color. Use a toothpick to make sure the bread is cooked through.
- Let it cool for about 10 minutes, then slice it and enjoy!
- 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.

- 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.
