For a long time I have been enjoying just my best keto bread which happens to be one of the most popular recipes on the blog.
I am still and will always be a fan of that recipe made with the best low carb dough This almond bread recipe was born out of the constant request from YOU my amazing readers for a recipe that didn't require cheese.
Having a lot of choices in a chosen lifestyle is never a bad thing. In fact it's actually a good thing.
This almond bread recipe is delicious and has no eggy taste at all, one of my top qualities for great keto/ Low carb breads. Since I am not in search of an omelette, I see no reason why my bread should taste like one. Eat an omelette when you want one and a piece of bread when you want one.
What makes a great keto bread?
- Not eggy
- Has the yeast flavor
- Lightly sweetened
And this low carb almond bread has all the above qualities.
How to make this keto/Low carb almond flour bread.
First off, Low carb breads require special sized loaf pans. This is because they usually don't rise much. Smaller loaf pans help to give keto breads some height.
This loaf pan is the one I use for most of my keto bread recipe. I also love that it comes in a pack of 2. This pan measures 7.75 x 3.75 x 2.75. If you don't have this size and you have a 8 x 4 loaf pan, that would work too.
Now that we have our pan sorted out here are a few tricks. Don't forger to watch the video to see how I make it.
Ingredients to make Keto/Low carb Almond bread.
With testing, I have found that a mix of whole eggs and egg whites work best for taste. When I used only whole eggs, the bread was quite pliable but eggy so I decided to gradually reduce the whole eggs in the recipe till I got to the perfect taste without tasting eggy.
The Other winning ingredient in this recipe is the yeast. Note: the yeast in this recipe is there for the yeast flavor and not as a leavening agent. The leavening agent here is the baking powder.
The Xanthan gum helps to give the almond bread the bread like texture. It acts as Gluten which is very important in low carb baking.
The sweetener is totally optional but like I said I like my keto breads tasting as close it's high carb counterpart as possible.
My sweetener of choice is either the Powdered Lakanto Classic or Powdered erythritol. If what you have is the granular sweetener, simply blend till smooth in coffee grinder. I show exactly how I do it in this post you can check it out for tips and tricks.
I have nut allergies can I use coconut flour for this recipe.
If you have nut allergies, you can use coconut flour in this recipe but not the same quantity because coconut flour is more absorbent than almond flour. I would ⅓ of a cup of coconut flour.
Another good nut free option is the sesame seed flour. Use the same quantity as with almond flour.
Can I make this Almond bread ahead?
This bread keeps well in the freezer for up to a month ( I am sure it can keep for longer but it hasn't lasted that long because it's all eaten up before a month )
Usually I make 2 batches at a time because I know other non keto members of my family always want to have some of this almond bread 😋😀.
