The easiest keto bread, made in 90 seconds in the microwave
Bread is one of the foods that people miss most on keto – at least I know I did – and a loaf of almond flour bread
is a great alternative. But, for a lot of folks, it’s quite a task to make, because you have to separate eggs, and whisk the whites to stiff peaks and so on. So, for those folks on the go, or those without ovens and those simply without the time or inclination to cook, this 90-second keto bread made in the microwave is the perfect solution. It’s literally as simple as mixing a few ingredients in a mug and popping it in the microwave. And in less than two minutes you have a keto friendly bread, almost as easy as putting bread in the toaster.
Use your keto bread for just about anything!
I can’t tell you how this changed my life. This keto bread is extremely versatile and can be used for many dishes. I found that just adding a bit of stevia and vanilla to it makes it the perfect replacement for lady finger biscuits or savoiardi in our keto tiramisu. It’s also fantastic to use to make keto bread crumbs with and perfect for burgers or sandwiches. This bread is also just 4 net carbs for the entire mug, so that is a definite plus point. And with 28 grams of fat and 13 grams of protein, it really balances out, macros-wise.

This recipe makes 1 serving. 1 serving = 1 full mug bread. Get this recipe on myfitnesspal.
This recipe makes enough for six round slices of bread approximately 2 ½ inches in diameter and ½ inch thick, so you will need a tall and wide mug that holds at least 16 ounces of liquid.
You should use a wide mug because if your mug is too narrow, it will be difficult to cook the bread all the way through and your bread slices will be very small. The mug I used is 4 inches tall and 3 ¼ inches wide.
And of course, since this bread is being cooked in the microwave, make sure your mug is also microwave-safe!
HOW TO SERVE THE BREAD
The small rounds can be used for sliders, small sandwiches, canapes, fancy toasts. I like toasting mine before spreading almond butter on top or mashed avocados.
Any leftover bread should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. It can keep for about 3 days. It will need to be reheated before consuming.
