A keto friendly yeast bread recipe to make in a bread machine! It’s the best homemade low carb yeast bread with just 5 grams of net carbs per slice. Plus, it gets great results every time.
My near zero carb bread made with pork rinds is one of the most popular recipes on the website. But some may want a low carb bread recipe that has closer texture to regular wheat bread.
When I first started on a low carb diet, I wasn’t concerned about gluten or soy. So I used a lot of ingredients that I wouldn’t use today. And one of my favorite recipes was a keto bread machine recipe.
After several failed attempts at making a low carb yeast bread in my bread machine, I finally found success. But I had to rely on a tried and true recipe found at Low Carb Luxury called Gabi’s World-Famous Bread.
Before going gluten-free, I’d make the recipe frequently because it’s so close to the real thing. But these days, with the popularity of the keto diet, there are a lot more options available. However, this is still a great recipe for those wanting to still use their bread machine after cutting carbs.
How to make a low carb bread machine recipe
It’s really easy to make keto yeast bread in a bread machine. First, you’ll proof the yeast to make sure it’s active. To do that, you simply mix it with sugar and warm water. The temperature of the water needs to be warm enough to activate the yeast, ideally over 80°F.
If the yeast mixture bubbles, it means it’s active and you can go ahead and add the dry ingredients. But they should be combined in a bowl first before adding.
With this low carb yeast bread recipe, I set the machine for a large 1.5 pound loaf with a medium baking control selection. Of course, the settings will depend on your specific bread machine model.
I let the machine run through its automatic cycle which took about 3 hours. However, you can experiment with the keto yeast bread recipe to determine the best time needed for your machine.
Does the type of bread machine matter?
My bread machine is made by Welbilt I have owned for over twenty years. It’s got a vertical loaf pan whereas a lot of the newer styles have a standard horizontal pan.
Since going low carb, this machine hasn’t got much use. Before learning how to make this keto bread with yeast, I just used a low carb bread mix.
However, commercially sold mixes tend to be a little pricey. That’s why it’s good to have an easy low carb bread recipe for a bread machine.
Low Carb Yeast Bread Recipe for a Bread Machine
I haven’t figured out how to make a gluten-free keto yeast bread in the machine that’s low in carbs. And I’m not sure if it’s possible since gluten is usually needed for yeast bread.
Psyllium husk powder can be used to make keto breads with a texture similar to regular bread. However, there’s no need to have a rise cycle with psyllium so the bread machine isn’t needed.
And psyllium has zero net carbs because it’s all fiber. A packet of active dry yeast has about 1.5 grams of net carbs.
Low Carb Sandwich Bread
Do you miss real bread? It can be tough to find a loaf of bread low in carbs that’s commercially made. And if you do it tends to be very expensive.
But there aren’t a lot of keto yeast bread recipes. Most are quick breads without gluten like the ones below:
- Sunflower Seed Bread
- Keto Gluten-Free Egg-Free Bread
- Psyllium Husk Keto Bread
- Keto Cheese Bread
- Low Carb Flaxseed Bread
