A Healthy Low Carb Bread Recipe
The secret step in this recipe that takes this carb-free bread from good to great is the separation of the eggs. You’re going to want to separate the yolks and the whites. The reason for this is that we’re going to whip the egg whites until they are fluffy. We’re looking for soft peaks. This will add some volume to the otherwise dense keto bread.
Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with making an almond flour bread. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 eggy taste?
There is a mild eggy 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 eggy 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 eggy 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!
Is the keto bread dairy-free?
This recipe calls for melted butter, but you can swap that out for whatever kind of dairy-free fat you like best. Ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil would all be great options. Let us know if you try the swap and how your bread turns out.
Is the recipe gluten-free?
Yes! This keto bread recipe and all of our other keto recipes are gluten free. The bread is made with finely ground almond flour instead of wheat flour, which means you and your gluten-free friends can enjoy a slice.
Do you need to refrigerate keto bread?
Yes, it is best to store keto bread in the refrigerator. It is also best to not slice the bread ahead of time. To prolong the shelf life of your keto bread you will want to slice it when you are hungry, and keep the entire loaf in a Ziploc bag, or a Tupperware container in the fridge. It will last in the fridge for 7-10 days.
How do I get my loaf to be taller and fluffier?
The two 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.
What Bread is Keto Friendly?
In general keto friendly breads are made of coconut flour or almond flour. These flours are used to produce a bread that is very low in carbs, as well as being free from common allergens like soy and gluten. Making homemade bread will give you the best of both worlds as far as taste and ingredient quality go.
Store bought low carb breads will typically use a much larger list of ingredients. Some common ingredients in store bought keto breads are vital wheat gluten, oat fiber, soy flour, wheat protein, and more. While these breads taste good and are more convenient than making a loaf of bread from scratch, they do contain some ingredients most keto dieters would like to avoid.
Where to buy Keto Bread near me?
If you’re not a fan of baking but you’re a fan of eating bread, there are places to get keto friendly bread these days.
- Keto Bread at Whole Foods Market – There are a few different options in the freezer section at Whole Foods. These breads will be labeled as “Paleo Bread” and will usually cost you $10+ per loaf!
- Keto Bread at Aldi – Aldi has a new product called “L’Oven Fresh Zero Net Carb Bread”. It seems to be flying off the shelves since we have not been able to get our hands on a loaf yet to review it. Be on the lookout for keto bread next time you are at Aldi.
- Keto Bread at Sprouts – Sprouts carries a line of high protein, low carb breads under the brand name Chompie’s. We were recently able to try Chompie’s, and while it did taste pretty good, the ingredients are not the best. It’s not something we would buy again.
- Local Keto Bread – The last option would be to find a local bakery near you that makes keto bread. There are more companies catering to the low carb customer than ever before, so while this might not be an option in every city, it’s worth a look!
Where to buy Keto Bread online?
If you’re willing to order online there are a number of good options to choose from. We haven’t tried all the options available but a few of our favorites are:
How Many Carbs are in Keto Bread?
A good keto bread should contain fewer than 3g of carbs per slice. This recipe comes out to 1g of net carbs per slice, making it a great option. Depending on the type of flour you are using and the recipe you follow, your keto bread may come out with a different carb count, but it will still be a healthier alternative to normal bread.
Best Keto Bread
- 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 8×4 loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure the bread is cooked through. Enjoy! 1 loaf makes 20 slices.
