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.
HOW TO MAKE AMAZING KETO BREAD EVERY TIME
There are two ways you can make this bread.
- The Simple Way OR
- The Keto Bakers Way (The steps are outlined below)
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.
LOW CARB BREAD BAKING TIPS
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.
BUTTER AND COCONUT OIL
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.
WHICH BUTTER SHOULD YOU USE?
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.
