Sure, keto bread is now available at the grocery store; however, many of those low carb loaves contain gluten - which is not ideal on the keto diet. This recipe for fluffy keto bread with almond flour is gluten-free and tastes like actual bread without being dense and it's around 2 grams of carbs per slice!

Low Carb Bread Recipe

Do you remember the days when your mom would bake a loaf of bread? I sure do! Warm, fragrant, and fresh from the oven – nothing beats that smell or flavor. Traditional, carb loaded wheat based bread is not allowed on the keto diet; however, it’s easy to make a low carb loaf of bread in around 30 minutes with this recipe.

There’s no need to buy keto bread from the store. Not only is it expensive, but it also contains vital wheat protein. So it may be zero carbs; however, wheat protein still contains gluten. Many of us try to avoid gluten on the keto diet as it can cause weight gain, bloating and inflammation. This recipe homemade keto bread with almond flour is your solution so you can enjoy a sliced bread with your sandwiches, french toast or served next to some lasagna!

The best part about this recipe is that you can make it anytime you have a craving for a crusty loaf of bread. Unlike other keto bread recipes that call for strange ingredients like psyllium husk, xanthan gum or vital wheat protein. With just some minimal ingredients that can be found in most keto pantries and refrigerators you can make a delicious loaf of gluten free bread that the whole family will love. So whip up a batch today and enjoy those sweet memories with your loved ones while they last 🙂

Store Bought Ketogenic Bread

I know you are probably thinking that it’s easier to buy keto bread from the store. Companies like Franz and Sola tastes delicious and are readily available; however, they are expensive and contain gluten (a frown upon ingredient on the keto diet). There are some gluten free keto bread options out there, like Base Culture, but at $10 a loaf, you may only want to have that on special occasions.

Other than the gluten, I love that there are ready made loaves available at many stores and online. This keto bread recipe is for those that want to control the ingredients you put into your bread (without the gluten or preservatives) and for those watching their budget. Plus it’s easy to stay low carb while still enjoying bread on the keto diet!

Protein Powder

The unflavored protein powder is a necessary ingredient in this recipe. It helps provide structure and helps fluff up this loaf. It’s also what helps to provide an airy texture for this almond flour based bread. There is no substitute for the protein powder and I do use it in a lot of my keto baking so I recommend you invest in a high quality, low carb protein powder. My favorite brand is by Isopure as their whey protein powder is zero carbs and it comes in different flavors.

I use protein powder in my parmesan bread puffs, keto donuts and milkshakes. It’s one ingredient that I know you will use over and over again!

Real Bread Flavor

My secret ingredient that I like to use in many of my keto bread recipes is sour cream. Not only does the acid in the sour cream help the bread to rise, but it also adds to the flavor of the bread. Some substitutions for the sour cream include, heavy cream mixed with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or plain greek yogurt.

Storage

Once you make this homemade keto bread, it will disappear fast – probably within a day or two. If you do want to make it up ahead of time and store it or it does end up lasting you more than a few days as it is an almond flour based bread, I would store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or the freezer for 3 months. Make sure you wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer safe bag.
