Keto Bread – Delicious Low Carb Bread – Fat For Weight Loss

FatForWeightLoss Keto Recipes and Low Carb Nutrition Finding it hard to give up bread? This keto bread will make your life much easier, the best low carb bread on the internet made with almond flour. Most keto bread recipes can taste very eggy or crumble easily. Amazingly, this bread has little to no eggy taste. Best of all, it actually holds together and works for sandwiches and toasties just like wheat bread.

There are two ways you can make this bread. If you just want the simple way,  jump straight to the recipe. If you have chosen the keto bakers way, let me show you some easy tips that will help you make the perfect bread every time. Pro Tip: I use this loaf tin for perfect bread every time. (Amazon link) Otherwise, any 8″X4″ (20 cm x 10 cm) tin will work. Please make sure your eggs are at room temperature before you attempt this recipe. This will reduce the likelihood of the bread tasting eggy. If you keep your eggs in the fridge, no worries. Just pop them into a bowl of hot tap water for 3 minutes. I like to use a magic whisk (pictured below) because it’s much easier than pulling out the electric mixer. Don’t worry if you don’t have one. I just find it easier. If your butter is already at room
temperature, skip this step. If you keep your butter in the fridge, then this step is for you! Cut the butter up and place in a small saucepan over low heat. As soon as you see the butter begin to melt, take it off the heat and just let it sit. You don’t want the butter to be hot, because this might cook the eggs when you combine them. Add the coconut oil once the butter has melted. (Use refined coconut oil if you don’t like the taste of coconut). Once the butter and coconut oil are melted,  slowly stream into the eggs while mixing on low. You can use anything, but grass-fed butter is the best. If you want to know more about the different types of butter, you can read my guide on butter for some clarification. Mix the almond flour with the xanthan gum, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl until well combined. Little by little, add to the egg mixture until very thick. Set your fan-forced oven to 180 C (355 F) and wait till it’s fully heated.  If you have a convection oven, drop the temperature by 5 C (20 F). If you are using a glass loaf pan, also reduce the temperature. (Glass retains heat longer). Make sure to line your baking pan with baking paper if you are not using a silicone tray. Smooth out the top surface of the bread with a spatula or bowl scraper. This helps keep the bread together whilst in the oven. I always set my timer for 10 minutes less than the recipe’s time because all ovens are different. Once small cracks appear on the top and the bread turns a golden brown colour, test with a toothpick or bamboo skewer right into the centre of the bread.  If it comes out clean, the bread is done. If not, you can bake an extra 10 minutes before checking it again. Let the bread cool on a cooling rack so that all the sides cool equally. Cooling it on a bread rack will significantly reduce the eggy taste also. Sometimes if you let the bread sit on a normal bench top or chopping board, the bottom section of the bread will turn a different colour. *Special mention to one of my Facebook readers for suggesting some of these easy keto bread baking tips.* Keto bread is a mixture of almond flour (or coconut flour), eggs, healthy fats and xanthan gum. It resembles normal wheat bread in texture but has about 20 times fewer carbs than regular bread. For those who are confused about the serving size, the bread should make 16 slices, and the nutritional information is for 1 slice only. In simple terms, 1 slice = 1 serving. The whole loaf makes 16 servings total. Yes, just add 1/2 cup olive oil instead of butter. This will give you a very similar result. Xanthan gum is a binding agent that stops the bread from crumbling so it slices like traditional wheat bread. However, if you don’t have xanthan gum, you have a few options to replace it: See the different options in the image below: Instead of adding 2 cups of almond flour, add 1/2 cup of coconut flour. Despite the lower amount of coconut flour, the result will be very similar to using almond flour, as it is much more absorbable than almond flour.

I usually slice it up, then place the sliced pieces into 2 plastic containers.  Keep 1 container in the fridge and 1 container in the freezer for next week. This ketogenic bread recipe only has 1 g of net carbs. Net carbs are total carbs minus fibre. If you want to know more about net carbs, read my full breakdown here. Each bread slice contains 165 calories. This is higher than regular bread, but only because it contains a large amount of healthy butter and coconut oil.

Name Email Shon says Posted on 24 July 2020 at 5:44 am I actually I misread your instructions on almond and coconut flour. So I did one cup almond 1/2 cup coconut. I think it was a happy little accident 😉 turned out delicious. Thank you. FatForWeightLoss says Posted on 24 July 2020 at 9:24 am haha I’m so glad it still worked 🙂 cindy wuer says Posted on 23 July 2020 at 3:16 am This bread is a game-changer for low a low carb diet. I wish I had found it months ago. Did not alter a thing. I think next time I will use olive oil instead of the coconut just to take that bit of sweetness out of it. But it does slice up similar to real bread. It will not hold up as well as traditional flour bread ( crumbles easier) but all in all performs similarly. I used it for Brushetta as well as for piling chicken salad on top of. Will be making this over and over again. Mine looked exactly like the photo’ FatForWeightLoss says Posted on 23 July 2020 at 5:44 am Thanks so much Cindy 🙂 JF says Posted on 22 July 2020 at 3:08 am Any idea how to reduce the EGGY taste?
