I’ve been making a loaf every sunday for the past few weeks and would recommend that to anyone. It’s so nice to have a loaf of bread at your disposal when you’re on a low carb diet. It almost feels like cheating. Check out this recipe and start making the best keto bread you’ve ever tried today!
The Secret Step
The secret step in this recipe that takes this bread from good to great is the separation of the eggs. You’re going to want to separate the yolks and the whites. The reason for this is that we’re going to whip the egg whites until they are fluffy. We’re looking for soft peaks. This will add some volume to the otherwise dense bread. Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with using almond flour. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.
What makes this the best keto bread recipe you’re likely to find is the fact that you can use it the same way you use actual bread. Sounds crazy right? If you search for keto bread on pinterest, or the internet you’ll find a different recipe for everything you might want to make. Want to make french toast? sandwiches? croutons? avocado toast? You can do it all with this bread recipe. You can even get crazy and throw this bread in a food processor and use it as italian bread crumbs. The possibilities are endless.
The Best Part About This Bread?
The best part about this bread is that it makes it so much easier to eat a low carb diet. Yes, there are some savage beasts(joking) that don’t miss bread at all and are happy to just eat bacon 7 times a day, but if you’re anything like me, bread was a staple of your diet growing up and you still have a look of yearning in your eyes when they drop that bread basket in the middle of the table at family dinner. I feel your pain. This bread your shoulder to cry on.

Net Carbs: 1.35g
- 1 1/2 Cup Almond Flour we get ours on amazon
- 6 Large eggs Separated
- 4 tbsp Butter melted
- 3 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar You can omit this. It only slightly improves the bread.
- 1 pinch salt
Preheat oven to 375.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.
In a food processor combine the egg yolks, butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined. This will be a lumpy thick dough until the whites are added.
Add the beaten egg whites to the mixture and further process. Be careful not to over mix! Once the whites are incorporated stop mixing. (If you do not have a food processor you can use a blender. You can try by hand but it might be tough to pull off)
Pour mixture into a buttered 8×4 loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure the bread is cooked through. Enjoy! 1 loaf makes 20 slices.
