A quick and easy low carb bread recipe you can enjoy as toast with breakfast to complement eggs, as part of a sandwich for lunch, or as a dinner appetizer.
It’s no secret that the one thing low carbers miss most is bread. Whether it’s a garlic bread with your favorite salad, enjoying a hearty sandwich, or just that morning slice of toast, bread is usually thought about with a sign of regret and longing.
But there’s good news! There are actually many keto bread recipes you can try; low carb dieters are no longer bread free. From low carb sweet breads to psyllium breads, there’s a recipe to suit every taste.
The keto bread recipe you’re going to try today is gluten free, sugar free, yeast free, and high in protein.
Low Carb Bread Without Too Much Egg Taste
Eggs are used for leavening, which makes the bread a little more dense than if you used baking powder and soda, but it doesn’t have a heavy flavor and the texture is just right, especially for toast.
While some have said they can taste the egg a little too much when it’s uncooked, the solution is using this for a grilled sandwich or as toast if you can taste it. Or you can just enjoy the flavor; it’s rich and satisfying and (in my opinion!) delicious!
Another option is to use the Soul bread recipe instead; it’s one that could be easily thrown together with ingredients you’d typically have on hand. It’s the perfect replacement for simple white bread.
If you were looking for a more allergen friendly low carb bread recipe, you can check out this nut free bread instead.
You can also substitue psyllium eggs for some of the whole eggs in the recipe, although I don’t suggest doing it for all of them. It’s generally 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder with 2 tablespoons of water.
Lastly, you can reduce the eggs and add baking powder (see the recipe notes for more instructions on this).
How to Make Gluten-Free Bread Rise
This low carb bread doesn’t have that fluffy look that some recipes have, but the flavor and texture are still fine. To make a taller loaf, you could just use a smaller pan.
I baked the bread in a standard 9×5-inch loaf pan. However, if you use an 8×4-inch pan instead, the height of the bread will be more like regular bread.
Of course, you’ll get fewer slices in the smaller pan and the carb count will be slightly higher, which is why the larger loaf pan is better for those on the keto diet or wanting to watch their carb intake, but if that more traditional loaf shape is important then go ahead and mix up the pan size.
To help the bread rise more, be sure to whip the eggs on high with an electric mixer. The eggs will have more froth to them, and the added air will increase the volume of the batter.
So what do you need to make this simple low carb bread recipe?
- Melted butter
- Liquified coconut oil
- Almond flour (finely ground works best)
- Coconut flour
- Xanthan gum
Nice and healthy with lots of protein and practically no carbs!
How To Make a Low Carb Bread Recipe with Almond Flour & Coconut Flour
You can make this bread with your food processor or, if you don’t have one handy, a mixing bowl and some good stirring will work just as well (just mix those eggs well). And, if you have a bread machine with a Quick Bread cycle, that can be used too.
To start, whip together the cracked eggs with melted butter and coconut oil. Be sure to whip the eggs up for a minute or two with an electric mixer to help the bread rise better.
Next, add in the dry ingredients and process them until well blended. Pay extra special attention to this step if you are mixing the ingredients by hand; you don’t want dry, powdery pockets in your finished loaf.
Once you make the batter, simply spread it out in a loaf pan and bake until it’s cooked completely through. This will take about 40-50 minutes depending on the size of the pan you’ve used.
Serving & Storing the Bread
This simple low carb bread is a great option that even non-keto eaters will enjoy if you want to share it with the whole family or have company over. Using it for sandwiches and serving it with soup are great ways to enjoy it, but don’t forget to try it for cinnamon French toast or paired with your favorite eggs, too!
You can also use it to make low carb croutons for your avocado parmesan kale salad or breadcrumbs for baked chicken or low carb stuffing. Isn’t it wonderful that you aren’t at all limited on a low carb diet now?
Store the bread in an airtight container on your counter for several days or in the fridge for up to a week. You can freeze this bread, but it will taste better toasted once it has thawed. It’s easy to make up a batch to use for the week’s lunches or to add to your meal plan for breakfast or dinner, too.
