Delicious Homemade Keto Bread

You’re not going to want to miss out on this Delicious Homemade Keto Bread. This is one of those recipes that you’ll be double and triple-checking to make certain you’ve not fallen off the Keto train. It’s seriously that good and keto-friendly!

One of the top items people miss while following dietary restrictions is bread. You don’t think it’s going to be a big deal until you don’t have it. Then you start to realize just how often it was used in some of your favorite meals. Plus, the body craves carbs anyways and bread can be the number one source for them. Believe me, you’re not alone in your struggle. I’ve been through the weight loss struggle and bread was a huge craving of mine.

Eating Keto is so much more than just a way of cooking. It’s actually a way of life that affords us so much more. Keto isn’t just some fad diet that’s been making the rounds. This is a popular diet followed by hundreds of thousands of people. And like any diet, the longer that it’s been around, the more recipes become available. (Learn more about the keto diet here!)

This is why I’m super excited to share this keto bread recipe with you today. Not only does it satisfy the bread craving your body has been desiring, but it also doesn’t ruin the diet you’ve strictly followed. 

Due to my craving for a keto bread, I decided it was a must to create a bread that would fit into my diet restrictions. That’s how this Keto Bread was born and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. I was so bored with most of the healthier breads because I would choke trying to swallow them or they would taste nothing short of cardboard. Let’s not mention the denseness of the “healthy” store-bought bread. This bread trumps them all and, quite honestly, caught me by surprise. You may even want to try it with recipes like this Apple Gouda Grilled Cheese, which isn’t typically keto-friendly when used with that store-bought bread you crossed off your shopping list.

What Bread is OK on Keto?

Some of the more commonly used types of bread for keto users are cloud bread or oopsie bread. These two types of bread are commonly made at home. However, since keto has become so popular, along with low carb options, most stores carry brands that make keto-friendly bread. Do not expect them to taste just like the bread you’re used to because they won’t come near it. As mentioned earlier, keto bread or healthier bread, in general, can be very disappointing. It’s often dry, tough, thick, not fluffy, and the flavor is nothing to write home about. My quest to find keto-friendly bread is exactly why I created this recipe in the first place.

What is keto bread made of?

This Keto recipe is created using almond flour or coconut flour. Not exactly the flour your grandmother used, but these flours still give this bread that fluffy and bread-like texture but make it easy to eat when living Keto. Personally, my favorite flour to use is almond flour. I’ve been making this homemade bread loaf for a while now and it’s a hit every single time.

What is Xanthan Gum?

This is an added ingredient that you’ll find in a lot of keto recipes. Its main purpose is to help stabilize and bind together the recipes. The majority of breads you find in stores typically have gluten to bind together the ingredients.

If the xanthan gum wasn’t added, there’s a good possibility that the bread wouldn’t hold together at all in the shape of a loaf. 

How do you know when the keto bread is done baking in the oven?

Making certain that the bread is fully done. No one wants to take a bite of raw bread! The good news is that you’d test this just like you would a regular bread recipe. 

Grab a toothpick or knife and insert it into the middle of the bread. If toothpick or knife is clean, your bread is finished baking. However, if you pull it out of the bread and it’s still covered in batter, bake the bread a bit longer and check it periodically. I recommend only baking it for 2-3 more minutes at a time and testing again to ensure that you don’t over bake it.

How do you store keto bread once it’s cooked?

Storing the keto bread in an airtight container is key to keep it fresh. The air is your enemy here! I like to actually leave the bread whole (besides the few slices that I’ve eaten already) and store it in a container or baggie and leave it sitting on the counter. The key is to keep the air out and you need to make certain that whatever you’re using is doing that.

I also recommend eating your keto bread within 48 hours of baking it. This ensures that it has the best taste and flavor. If you notice that it’s starting to dry out a bit but is still good, you can always opt for toasting it in the oven, toaster, Air Fryer or convection oven and eating it that way.

Notes

  • Make sure the eggs are at room temperature. It will be fluffier that way.
  • Make sure to beat the eggs with an electric beater or in a stand mixer to make sure adequate air is whipped into the eggs.

Tips for Making Keto Bread

 

  • When storing in the freezer, slice the bread and place it in an airtight container. The bread will do best with wax paper separating the slices.
  • For storing in the fridge, simply place the loaf in an airtight container, there’s no need to slice it.
  • Be sure to tap your loaf pan lightly after pouring the batter in it. This will remove air bubbles and make it a smoother baking process. 
  • This recipe must be made with an electric mixer. Hand whipping the eggs will not make them fluffy enough. Further, hand mixing the other ingredients will not mix them as thoroughly as they need to be. 
  • For a fluffier bread, make sure eggs are room temperature instead of pulling them straight from the fridge. 

 

I promise you won’t feel like you’re missing out on your precious bread once you try this recipe. I swear by it and I’m always excited to share it with friends and family. This Keto Bread is a total game-changer and definitely broadens the recipe horizon for those with dietary restrictions.
