This keto bread recipe is ready in 90 seconds and it’s a great alternative to regular bread with just a fraction of the carbs.
Every time I go on a low carb diet, I start craving bread, pizza, pasta and rice. All things with way more carbohydrates than I can have.
Thankfully with the popularization of the keto diet, most of these things now have amazing substitutes.
This recipe can be used as regular bread in sandwiches and burgers or as a base for pizza.
What is even more amazing is that the texture is really bread-like and this recipe is ready in 90 seconds!!
When I cook it for a pizza base, I just use a plate instead of a bowl so that the dough is thinner and longer. I’ve tried cauliflower pizza crusts, but they are very time consuming and are too soft for my taste. I prefer to use this recipe or a low carb tortilla wrap instead.
This base recipe for Keto Bread can also be altered to be sweet or savory. Add cheese and herbs or cinnamon and a sweetener for variety.
- 3 tbsp almond flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe container. Make sure there are no lumps and egg is well incorporated.
- Microwave on high for 90 secs. Let it rest for a minute before removing.
- Toast or serve as is.
Is keto bread really like regular bread?
The short answer is no. The texture is very similar which makes it a great substitute, but nothing tastes like regular bread.
There are two big differences you might notice right away about this Keto Bread. One is that the keto bread is softer than regular bread. This textural difference however can be addressed by toasting the keto bread.
The second difference is the noticeable egg smell. Since this bread is only made with 4 ingredients, you might smell the egg in it more prominently. I’ve tried cooking it with just egg white or just yolk and the result is the same, but if you toast it, somehow, the egg smell is replaced by a nuttier smell from the almond flour.
