One of the biggest struggles in the Keto lifestyle is adjusting to a life without bread. Sandwiches? Toast? Hamburgers with buns? All a thing of the past. Or are they? Recently I came across a recipe for a low carb ketogenic friendly bread that really takes a bite out of those cravings! While this bread isn’t difficult to make it does take special attention so some finer details to make it “fluffy” enough to match that feel that only bread provides. This recipe is adapted from ketoconnect.net.
Low Carb Keto Bread
- 1 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
- 6 Large Eggs
- 4 Tbsp Butter, Melted
- 3 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 Tsp Cream of Tartar
- 1 Pinch of Salt
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating separate the eggs splitting the whites and yolks into different bowls. Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat the eggs with a hand mixer (KitchenAid 7-Speed Digital Hand Mixer) until peaks are formed. Whipping air into the egg whites at this stage are what gives the bread that fluffy texture. If you want denser bread go easy on this step or not at all.
Mix the egg yolks, butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt in a food processor (Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Food Processor) until all the ingredients are combined well. Some lumps won’t matter but it’s best to try and get them all out at this stage.
Add 1/3 of the egg whites to the mixture and continue to process it until it is well mixed.
Critical point! Add the remainder of of the egg whites to the processor and mix it in. Do this only long enough to mix it and no longer. This will insure the air isn’t worked out of the egg whites entirely and add the fluff we’re looking to create!
Finally pour the mixture into a buttered 8×4 loaf pan (Calphalon Bakeware Loaf Pan) and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Check the bread by piecing it in the middle with a toothpick. If the tooth pick comes out clean it’s done. If there is some dough stuck to it then it needs more time.
