Meal prep is such a big part of our keto success, and by making most things in bulk, including this Keto Mug Bread, our lives are a whole lot easier! We like to keep a big jar of this mixture right next to the microwave in times of need, such as when carb cravings hit or when we need to add some substance to a meal. Its take two minutes to make the mixture and another two to make the bread!
Note: This recipe is for a large batch of keto mug bread mix, not for a single batch.

Keto Microwave Bread
Making bread in the microwave may sound weird, but it is something you have to try before you dismiss it. Many people miss bread when they first start a keto diet, so the fact that this delicious keto mug bread can be made in just a few minutes can be a huge relief.
Don’t Have a Microwave?
Not to worry! You can still make this recipe even if you don’t have a microwave. Follow the recipe the same way as described below, but instead of microwaving it, you can bake it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. The truth is it will probably taste even better fresh from the oven.
Make a Bigger Batch
If you want to make a larger serving of bread at one time, the cooking time will increase. A standard size mug bread will take between 70-80 seconds, but if you want to make a double batch it may take closer to two minutes in the microwave.
Coconut Flour vs. Almond Flour
A question we always get asked is if you can substitute between these two keto friendly flours. Typically you are best served by not trying to make the swap because coconut flour is much more absorbent than almond flour. That being said, to make this recipe using coconut flour, try using just over 1/2 cup in place of the 2 cups of almond flour.
