Keto Bread Recipes: Regular, Garlic, Cheese, or Peanut Butter Bread
When I started following the Ketogenic diet the one thing I really missed was BREAD! I missed having bread to dip into my fried egg in the morning.. I missed taking sandwiches to work.. I missed having bread to mop up my oil dressing in my Keto salad.. And I would have killed to be able to spread some of my (low carb) peanut butter on some hot toast occasionally!
But at the end of the day, I did without bread for quite a while. That is until I discovered that I really didn’t need to!
One day, about 4 weeks into my Keto diet, I discovered a basic Keto bread recipe that tasted ok. Not great. Tasted a little too much of almond, tasted a little too eggy, but was functional. But through a whole lot of trial and error, I managed to improved upon this basic Keto bread recipe to eventually make what I think may be the best and most flexible Keto bread recipe available.
In this article I describe a Keto bread recipe that not only tastes amazing, but that can easily be adapted to make other types of Keto bread, such as Keto Garlic Bread, or Keto Cheese Bread, or even Keto Peanut Butter Bread, with little to no extra effort. Also it was important that it sliced well, held together well, toasted well, and tasted unbelievable – oh, and of course, would be low in carbs!
Naturally, don’t expect it to be exactly like the bleached-out supermarket bread we are all used to. But this bread recipe does taste great. In fact lots of non-keto friends who have tried it have said it tastes even better than their usual bread. Some have even taken to making it themselves just because they enjoy the taste! Unbelievable, huh? Well try it yourself!
So without further ado, here is the Keto Fight Club Ultimate Keto Bread Recipe! Enjoy!
Keto Fight Club’s Ultimate Keto Bread Recipe
You will need the following ingredients:
Serving: this recipe will make one loaf, which will cut into approximately 16 slices, providing 1.4g net carbs / 2.8g total carbs per slice.
Notes: In the recipe, the coconut flour takes the edge off the almost taste, and results in a neutral, bread aroma. A teaspoon of yeast contributes to this bread like loveliness, and although it does not cause the mix to rise (as with standard bread), it does contribute to the bread-like flavour. Finally, xantham gum binds the whole mix together and gives it the texture of the bread you are used to.
Once you have your ingredients together – simply follow the method below. You won’t believe how simple and easy this bread is to make!
- Preheat your oven to 180 c (355 F)
- Line a 9″ X 6″ loaf tin with a baking sheet
- Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk thoroughly (if using an electric whisk then whisk high speed for 2 minutes).
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the egg and again mix thoroughly until a thick glutenous consistency.
- Poor mixture into the baking tin and place in the oven.
- Cook for 40-45 minutes. The bread is baked when you can poke a skewer all the way into the center of the bread and pull it out clean.
Keto Garlic Bread
To adapt this bread recipe to make a simple garlic bread simply add 1 Tsp of garlic granules to the above recipe before mixing. Tastes divine – more popular with my family than even the great tasting non-garlic version!
Keto Cheese Bread
Similarly, to make this a Cheese Keto bread I simply add 100 g of mature cheddar cheese, a pinch of black pepper and a teaspoon of parsley to the recipe before mixing. The cheese adds less then 0.1 g net carbs per slice – so next to no difference. This makes a cheese bread that truly stands on its own. You won’t need to spread anything on it!
Keto Peanut Butter Bread
You aren’t going to be very surprised by the method here. Yes, you guessed it.. Simply add 160g of smooth or crunchy peanut butter to the mix. OMG this is soooo good! But be aware that this increases the carb content to 2.6 net carbs / 4.9g total carbs per slice. But you may agree with me that it is worth it!
