What is keto bread?

Many people who follow a keto diet miss the smell and taste of bread enormously. Bread is an important part of many breakfast and lunch meals, and therefore eliminating bread completely is a tricky task for many people.

Keto-bread uses friendly options instead of wheat and other grains. The trick is to go for low-carb ingredients, such as almond or coconut flour. The taste will be different than you are used to, but certainly just as delicious. Besides, nothing beats the smell of home-baked bread.

Ingredients you encounter when you bake keto

There are plenty of ways to prepare keto-bread yourself. The required ingredients differ per recipe and personal preference. In general though, you can come across the following ingredients:


There are a lot of eggs in keto-bread, usually half a dozen. Make sure to separate the yolks from the whites. This allows you to beat the egg white nicely until it becomes a fluffy whole. By whipping it gently you get light and airy bread.

Baking powder

Keto-bread contains about 3 teaspoons of baking powder. This ensures that the keto-bread rises nicely and retains its airy composition.

Sweetener and salt

Normal bread often is sweetened with sugar, which doesn’t bode well with a healthy diet. Instead, keto-bread opts for an alternative sweetener, usually Stevia. To enhance the taste of the bread, you can add a hint of Himalayan salt.


Butter adds flavour to the bread and ensures that it tastes wonderfully creamy. If you would prefer a dairy-free alternative, you can opt for coconut or avocado oil.

Gluten-free flour

There are many types of flour to use as an alternative to grains and wheat. In principle, nothing else changes in the baking process. A big difference with the use of the ingredients below is that these flours do not contain gluten. As a result, there will be no fermentation process when the flour comes into contact with yeast. The dough will not rise, as you are used to with normal dough.

Almond flour

A commonly used variant for wheat and grains is baking with almond flour. Almond flour is becoming increasingly popular and therefore is more readily available. Almond flour is gluten-free and suitable for people with a gluten intolerance or allergy. You can make the flour yourself too by grinding almonds, or you can get it ground ready-made. Almond flour has a delicious, nutty and buttery taste.

Coconut flour

Another common alternative in keto bread is coconut flour. Coconut flour gives the bread a delicious taste and is easy to prepare. Coconut flour is made from cold-pressed coconut meat, which contains many important nutrients. Coconut flour is also gluten-free, safe to use for people with a gluten intolerance or allergy.

Buckwheat flour

Buckwheat flour is also a gluten-free type of flour and is used for preparing keto bread. The flour is easily digestible and is a source of protein and magnesium. It is also readily available and is relatively affordable. Buckwheat can be bought as seeds, to grind yourself, or as ready-made flour.

How many carbohydrates are in a keto bread?

A ketogenic diet is all about consuming as few carbohydrates as possible. Compared to normal bread, keto bread contains hardly any carbohydrates. On average, a keto bread contains only 2 carbohydrates per slice. This is very low as a normal slice of bread contains about 20 grams of carbohydrates. Of course, this depends on the type of flour and butter you chose to use. To accurately measure how many carbohydrates your keto bread contains, you can view the ingredients of your bread and note how many carbohydrates it contains per ingredient.

Can I substitute ingredients?

You can put keto bread together entirely according to your wishes and preferences. From the different types of flour for flavour, to the array of sweeteners for taste, you can build your keto-bread to your preference. You can also consider replacing the butter with coconut oil, avocado oil or ghee.

To give the bread a spicy or spicy taste, you can add ingredients such as garlic powder or cumin seeds. You can also finish the bread by sprinkling a crispy layer of nuts or seeds over the bread, such as sesame or poppy seeds. This completes the bread giving it a delicious bite.

Keto bread in 90 seconds

The best soft and fluffy low carb keto bread made with almond flour in the microwave in just 90 seconds. It’s great for sandwiches, grilled cheese, with butter and more!


Whisk the egg, milk, oil, coconut flour, nut flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. Add the cheese and scallions or herbs if desired, and stir to combine.

Pour into a large microwave-safe mug and tap the bottom of the counter firmly a few times to make air bubbles rise and pop. Microwave for 1 minute, 30 seconds on high heat.

Invert the mug onto a cutting board and let the bread slide out. Cut crosswise into 1,5-2,5cm thick slices. To toast, heat a teaspoon of oil in a small skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the slices and roast until golden brown, about 30 seconds per side.
