90 Second Keto Bread
Fluffy keto sandwich bread in 90 seconds
The best airy, fluffy keto bread that looks and tastes like bread - all without that eggy flavor typical of most keto bread recipes. Just 90 seconds to bake and you see what this recipe is better than sliced bread.
Being able to make gluten-free keto bread in minutes is key to sticking to the low carb lifestyle. In fact, having access to easy portion-controlled recipes are ideal for when cravings hit, like these keto hostess cupcakes, which makes 2 cupcakes, or this sugar free chocolate mug cake.
If you have tried other recipes for 90 second keto bread before, you may have been disappointed. Most recipes for this quick bread fall flat because they have an overwhelming eggy flavor, taste like baking powder, have a strange yellow appearance or don’t taste like bread at all.
I tested many variations and came up with a recipe that looks like real sandwich bread. This 90 second bread made with almond flour is a fluffy low carb version of white bread with air holes through out to make it spongy and ready to soak up butter or mayonnaise. In fact it’s perfect for making sandwiches like grilled cheese. We disguise the eggy flavor thanks to a key ingredient. With instructions for baking bread in the microwave or oven, you simply can’t beat this recipe.
The best part is that this keto sliced bread toasts in a toaster to give you that perfectly golden brown crust and crunchy texture! Now you can have a side of toast with your eggs and bacon.
How to make 90 second keto bread
- Mix together the dry ingredients. Add almond flour, protein powder, baking powder, allulose and salt (if using) and mix until combined.
- Mix in wet ingredients. Add softened butter, egg white, sour cream and heavy cream.
- Bake in the microwave or oven. Pour into baking dish. Use a microwave or oven-safe baking dish lined with parchment paper. Bake for 90 seconds in the microwave or 9 minutes in the oven.
- Slice and serve. After cooling, slice down the middle to make 2 slices.
- Almond flour – I use almond flour in the majority of keto baking as it is easily accessible to most in the grocery store or online. If you have a nut allergy, you can substitute with sunflower seed flour. It measures cup for cup with almond flour.
- Protein powder – Protein powder is added to keto breads and baked goods to help puff them up and give them a fluffy texture without the need for additional eggs. The protein powder I use is a zero carb whey protein powder. You can substitute with any type of protein powder for this recipe.
- Baking powder – The baking powder acts as an leavening agent to help the bread rise but it also contributes to flavor and browning effect when you toast or cook the bread in a griddle. It’s the key ingredient to give this low carb bread that perfect golden brown crust and crunch.
- Allulose – An optional ingredient, a small amount of sweetener is added just for a touch of sweetness.
- Salt – This is also an optional ingredient. You may want to omit this if you are making grilled cheese sandwiches as the cheese provides enough salt.
- Butter – We use softened unsalted butter in this recipe to add fat, flavor and moisture. Many 90 second keto bread recipes can be dry. Butter helps to off-set this.
- Egg white – The egg in keto bread helps to make the bread rise and provides structure and support. You could you an whole egg instead but it will change the color of your bread from white bread to yellow bread. If you do use a whole egg, omit the heavy cream.
- Sour cream – This is my secret ingredient in keto baking to mask over any eggy flavor that eggs give off in a recipe. You could substitute with a low carb Greek yogurt – possibly cream cheese, although I haven’t experimented with this.
- Heavy cream – Add for an extra bit of moisture so our bread isn’t dry. You can substitute with nut milk if needed.
- Square baking dish – The baking dish I used is both microwave safe and oven safe. It is square and came in a meal prep set similar to this set. The dish I used holds 781 ml.
- Parchment paper – This will keep the bread from sticking to the sides of the baking dish. It also makes it easier to lift our your bread loaf.

Is there any thing we can replace the protein powder with
I have experimented without it because I knew I wanted to use it for it’s baking properties, but you can try omitting it. It may change the texture of the bread.
Hey! I just love you!!! Can you use xanthan gum instead of the protein powder?? Thank you for everything!
Hi Stephanie! I haven’t tried that substitution. I think you could get away with not using the protein powder…maybe even adding in a little more almond flour. The protein powder is there just for texture.
I used collagen to replace protein powder.
Please provide a recipe for making a loaf of this bread
I second that. Seems like so many keto baking recipes are for one serving.
you can increase the amount of ingredients for the size of baking loaf you have.
I have only doubled the recipe – which works, but haven’t tried a loaf yet
Oh my goodness!!! This is such a good and versitile recipe. I realized last minute that I was out of sour cream so I subbed ricotta cheese instead and topped with everything but the bagel seasoning before microwaving. This was so stinking good. It didn’t even need butter on top and I couldn’t stop eating it warm right out of the microwave. Thank you Annie!
Ah ricotta! I am gonna test it soon. Sounds amazing!
Totally a winner !!! Taste is amazing, i doubled the salt because I like my bread salty and no sweet allulose for me. It toasts beautifully, I baked it for 11 minutes then let it cool and then toasted it. I made an amazing sandwich with mayo, lettuce, avocado, and tomato.
This recipe is life changing! I am gluten free as well as a keto follower. This is so delicious and the texture and flavor make it perfect for grilled cheese.
Thanks for sharing!
Grilled Cheese is amazing… also BLT’s!
Hello can you tell me please the power/wattage of your microwave oven, as they all vary. Thankyou
Hi Elizabeth, it is a 1200 watt microwave.
Oh My God!!!!! is right… so so good and dangerous. I never would have thought we could make something like this in the microwave.
This has changed my life ! Followed the recipe to a T and the results are outstanding. Dare I say I prefer this over regular bread . Most keto recipes I find are very labour intensive but whipped this up in less than 5 minutes on my lunch break .
Wish there were instructions for making a whole loaf. I get that you could triple or quadruple the recipe however I can see how one wrong step can alter the texture ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hi. Can WPI ( Whey Protein Isolate) be used instead of the protein powder?
Yes, you can use any type of protein powder
Could this be made a little thicker to use for french toast and what adjustments should be made?
Try adding more almond flour to add more substance…maybe 1/3 cup
This so delicious! I know this is supposed to a quick one serving, but I’d love to be able to make a loaf of this. Do you have a recipe for a loaf? Thanks!
I haven’t tried a whole loaf yet. I did double the recipe, which worked. It was pretty moist, so I recommend cooling it before cutting.
I can’t wait to try this. I was wondering though, because I prefer to batch cook some things, can this recipe be increased & baked on a sheet pan rather like a flat bread, then sliced into servings? If I were to attempt this, what temperature would you recommend for the oven & would you suggest regular oven or convection? Thank you for the recipe!
Baking it in a sheet pan is a good idea! I haven’t tried that but I think it would work if you wanted to make a larger batch
Did not rise enough to slice successfully for me. I will try doubling the recipe next time. Only sub. I made was stevia instead of alluose and I used a whole egg- I don’t care about color or eggy taste. Quite sweet, it had a hint of almond cookie. I’m loving the Keto lifestyle!
Hi… I made this bread earlier today. I baked at 350 degrees in a glass baking dish (3 and 3/4 inch by 3 and 3/4 inch). It took more than 20 minutes to bake. I think adding 1/3 cup almond flour would have given it a thicker consistency. I used protein powder with a blend of fermented pea protein, goji berry and hemp seed protein. I do not use whey protein because it raises insulin levels and is not good for Keto. The bread came out good and I enjoyed it toasted. Thank you.
I love this! I’vebeen experimenting…I added a whole egg, just easier, and split the batter into two 5 or so inch ramekins. 9 min in the air fryer. I might try some milk kefir instead of the sour cream, since I don’t always have sour cream on hand. This recipe is a winner!!!
Would it be the same without protein powder and add a tbsp of almond flour instead?
The texture might be different but you can try it
This was SO tasty – came across it on Instagram and made it the next day, but the bottom of the bread came out wet on the parchment. Have you come across this and how did you solve it? Was every bit as spongy as described, went right in the toaster (which helped) and was the first time I’ve had avocado toast in a while. YUMMO!
To use it as a sandwich bread, you do have to let it cool. It’s hard to use right away because it will be so moist.
I just made the recipe but mine still seems very wet on the bottom Even after 90 seconds…
Like I mentioned, you have to let it cool
Mine was not cooked i could see on top so i just went for 30 sec more. That worked for me.
The toasty looks great. First came across this “bread” on Ketoserts some time ago. It’s a game changer for sandwiches.
AHHHHHHmazing! Seriously tastes like bread. Best recipe I have found.
I have made this 4 times, each time using a large bottom cereal bowl, so it makes a thicker round result. It is wonderful. I cook it in my toaster oven, once it sliced in half. I made it today, and I choose to make French toast. It was wonderful! Very filling as well, probably from more protein in the egg mislxture to make it. I’m so glad that I watched your video. Thanks alot. It truly is a great bread. Now, what can I do with all my egg yokes🤔. More research…
This is, hands down, my FAVORITE keto recipe so far. I really liked it when I took that first bite, but omygoodness…after I toasted it? Amazing! Thank you!
I have unflavored Vital Proteins collagen powder Do you think could use that in place of the whey protein you used?
I haven’t tried that yet in this keto bread recipe, but if you try it let me know how it turns out
This! This right here is the best Keto bread we have ever tried! I made it exactly like the recipe is written.. You really need to let it cool completely or you won’t be able to slice it very well. But if you can’t wait, just put the pieces in a buttered skillet and toast it that way. The texture did not make you think *Keto* it felt like regular bread.
I’m ready to start exploring other options! Add the vanilla protein powder and cinnamon..cinnamon bread! Garlic and cheddar in a different shape? Garlic biscuits for your fish night!
THANK YOU THANK YOU for such an awesome recipe!
Hi, wondering if I can use collagen or gelatin powder? I don’t normally use whey. Also, wondering if that will work in the corn chip recipe 🙂 thanks
I haven’t tried it with the collagen powder. It would probably be fine with the bread recipe but not sure how it would work with the chips.
Just stumbled across this recipe. Outstanding! I tried 6 or more with the egg white only. Decided on the next 2, to use the whole egg. Other than the yellow color, it tasted every bit as good. I agree, now how to make a loaf of this? Thanks alot🍞
What went wrong? I veered from the recipe by whipping the egg whites. Mine turned out more the texture of cornbread! I used finely ground almond flour. Should I have used extra fine flour. I may try again leaving out the baking powder and not beating the egg whites.
Probably user error!
I love this bread after I cooked in microwave I toasted in my air fryer Omg so good! like a flaky tea biscuit
I made a double batch. It looked more like batter than dough. I microwaved for 9 minutes and it was burned to a crisp. Any suggestions?
Maybe don’t microwave for 9 minutes! LOL! No wonder it burned. If you double the recipe, the baking time will be a little longer than 90 seconds but not 9 minutes.
Is the nutrition facts for the whole servings or half the recipe? Calories 181. Is that for half of the recipe?
Nutrition facts is for one slice. The recipe makes two slices
I just made this bread yesterday and had a sandwich for the first time in a long time! It was delicious!! Thank you so much for this delicious easy recipe!
My only gripe is with your serving calculations. You say this serves 2 with a serving equaling 1 slice. I presume that slice is after you cut the “loaf” that comes out of the microwave. So if I make a sandwich and eat 2 slices I’d effectively double your per-serving calorie counts (carbs, fat, etc). However, even doubling all your macro numbers doesn’t come close to totaling my calculations! I use a calorie tracker that scans bar codes and logs the macro counts. One quarter cup of almond flour alone is 320 calories! Add the other ingredients and I’m up to 688 calories! Sure I could say this serves 2 and make one “slice” of the “loaf” equal 344 calories which is closer to doubling your per-slice macro numbers, but the fact remains that all the ingredients that went in the bowl (688 calories) went into two “slices” that made up my sandwich and therefore I ate 100% of the ingredients. I’m at a loss as to how you’re coming up with numbers so low!!! Help! I want to love this recipe and use it frequently, but I can’t eat half my calories for an entire day in JUST the bread portion of a sandwich! Am I missing something here?
I revisited the macros. I use myfitnespal and scan labels of the items used to calculate macros. There was an error with the almond flour, the app didn’t halved the macros for the almond flour even though the correct amount was entered in. I have updated the macros. The correct ones are 240 calories per slice and 2.1 g net carbs per slice. You values will depend on your products used (almond flour, protein powder, sour cream).
Hi, I used the whole egg and my dash griddle, instead of the microwave. It made 2 slices. Awesome. Thanks for the recipe
Hi. Just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to post this recipe and video. I had almost given up trying to find a palatable keto bread recipe. Man, this is a game changer. Not only that, but so many options you can do with this. Also, a few key ingredients here has given me the “missing link” to issues with some of my own keto recipes. Much appreciated.
As a side note: I don’t understand why people get so worked up over the nutritional info. I have apps for that. I just appreciate the recipe and your time.
I popped it into my waffle iron. This seriously makes the BEST waffles ever! It made 2 mini waffles. Thanks for the recipe.
Is egg white protein powder okay to use? I think I saw another one of your videos forna different recipe where you said egg white protein powder wouldn’t work well so I just want to make sure.
I had people comment in the YouTube video that said they used it and it worked fine.
I just made this. Came out formed but wet. I was wondering when I used my xlarge egg if it was too big. What do you think? I’ll let it air out a little and see what happens when I toast it.
It could be the egg size. I usually use large or medium eggs.
Oh my gosh this bread is so good. It’s the best keto bread I’ve had. I’m trying to go dairy free. But this bread will be hard to give up. 😔
Very nice receipt!
Do you have the ingredients in metrics (grams)?
That would be very helpful!
Just squirreled this away for breakfast tomorrow. Before I did, had a little sample, and was very happy with taste, and texture. The best I’ve made so far. Saw the keto twins today, and yours garnished much compliments. Thank you
i tried this recipe and kept failing, tried it different ways, still couldnt get there. all were too moist cake like not toasting. I gaved up, I love keto focus but chuck this one as a something in Florida vs Connecticut.Time passed. Watched the Keto twins hoping they may have a better recipe and this recipes was the winner. So decided to give it another try. Changed the melted butter for avocado oil, did egg white from a carton, and here for me where i think the big difference is, mymicrowave is only 900 watts, I have no doubt she has a much better microwave than me, most of the US has a better microwave than me 🙂 so i cooked it for 2 mins. and yes it worked for me, its fantastic, it toasted this time! much less spongy.
