For keto bread, few precautions must be considered. Sift the almond flour before using it; this weeds out the lumps and gives you a smoother batter. If you don’t have cream of tartar to stabilize the egg whites, use a few drops of lemon or vinegar instead. Also, use a very, very light hand to fold in the egg whites into the batter to keep from deflating it. If you find this bread too eggy, leaving it overnight in the fridge seems to help reduce that aftertaste.
Note: You can’t make this without eggs and you can’t substitute almond flour with coconut flour.
- 1 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
- 6 Large eggs Separated
- 1/4 cup Butter melted
- 3 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
- 1 pinch Pink Himalayan Salt
- 6 drops Liquid Stevia optional
Preheat oven to 375.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.
In a food processor combine the egg yolks, 1/3 of the beaten egg whites, melted butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt (Adding ~6 drops of liquid stevia to the batter can help reduce the mild egg taste). Mix until combined. This will be a lumpy thick dough until the whites are added.
Add the remaining 2/3 of the egg whites and gently process until fully incorporated. Be careful not to overmix as this is what gives the bread it’s volume!
Pour mixture into a buttered 8 x 4 loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure the bread is cooked through. Enjoy! 1 loaf makes 20 slices.
Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour?
There’s no need to try making this recipe using coconut flour when we’ve created this amazing coconut flour bread recipe for you. It’s a slight variation on this recipe and is the perfect coconut flour loaf for those of you with nut allergies or if you just hate almonds.
How do I get rid of the egg taste?
There is a mild egg taste to this bread, which we happen to love, but some people don’t like it. We’ve tested a couple of different ways to eliminate it and here is what we’ve come up with:
- Stevia – It might sound crazy, but adding a few drops of stevia to this recipe is the best way to eliminate the egg taste. Just a few drops will do! We typically use 6 drops of stevia. That amount will not make the bread sweet to the taste at all, but it will greatly reduce the egg taste.
- Yeast – Adding a tablespoon of Active Dry Yeast to this recipe can result in a more traditional bread flavor. The yeast won’t make the bread rise or anything since we’re not using sugar or gluten, but the flavor will still come through.
- Butter – This might be the best way 🙂 Just add some delicious butter to the top of a slice and you will think you’re eating traditional bread!
How do I store Keto Bread?
Slicing to order is going to be your best bet from a shelf life standpoint. We pop the entire loaf in the fridge, either in a tupperware container or a ziploc bag and cut off slices as we eat it. It will last in the fridge for 7-10 days.
How do I get my loaf to be taller and fluffier?
The 2 major issues that will lead to a flat loaf is not whipping the egg whites and gently folding them in OR using almond meal instead of a finely ground almond flour. If you’ve tried everything and they don’t seem to be working for you, the next best option will be to make a larger recipe. Try making 1.5x this recipe (it’s easy to do using the servings slide bar) and you’ll have a much larger loaf.
