    • Hi Melanie,

      To be completely honest, I have never even used a bread maker in my life, so I have no idea how they work in order to give you accurate advice. All I can suggest is giving it a go, if you want to experiment, and please pop back and let me know!

  1. Gerri, thank you for this! I have a keto bread machine recipe that calls for 1 tsp of HONEY (8 grams) as food for the YEAST (also 8 grams) 1.) Can I substitute INULIN for the honey? and 2.) Would it be an equal swap? Thanks so much!

    • Hi Mary,

      My general rule for inulin is to use equal amounts to the yeast, so 1 tsp yeast and 1 tsp of inulin. I hope that helps!

    • Hi Lenny,

      I’m honestly not sure what could be happening here without further information about your ingredients and oven.

      Are your ingredients fresh, or have they been sitting around for a while?
      Does your oven run true to temperature?
      Are you weighing the ingredients or estimating the cup amounts?
      Is your loaf tin 9x5in, or smaller or larger?
      Have you substituted any ingredients?

  2. Followed the recipe to the letter for my first loaf. It’s beautiful and also a little bit eggy. Will try next time with one or two fewer eggs. Also liked some people’s addition of some protein powder…

  3. Wow this bread is amazing! I had this on my list of recipes to try for a while because I was hesitant about the 7 eggs in the recipe. I should have tried this sooner! It smelled so good while it was baking with the yeast in the bread, what a wonderful aroma. And once it cooled and I sliced it up, I didn’t even put any butter or anything on it, I just wanted to try the bread by itself. It is the best keto bread I have ever had. It slices easily, even thin slices. It has a nice tight crumb and the flavor is AWESOME! I will definitely be making this one again … and again … Thank you = )

    • Hi Sylvia,

      As much as I would love to add the cup and tablespoon amounts for all the ingredients in this recipe, it is just not suitable. Due to the different volumes of cups and spoons between the US and Australia, and also the different ways that people choose to fill their cups, there is too much variation for me to provide an accurate measurement.

      For this recipe (and many other baking recipes), I highly recommend investing in a food scale.

  4. Excellent!! I read the comments and suggestions and prepared my bread exactly a the recipe stated and perfect! Nice to have a slice of keto bread that doesn’t taste like cardboard!

  5. Are there any substitutes for xanthan gum? And can I use almond meal instead of almond flour? This is my first time baking so I have no idea what these ingredients are, any advice would be great 🙂

    • Hi Tracy,

      I don’t recommend leaving out the xanthan gum, it acts like gluten to give the bread a nice chewy texture. You can use almond meal instead of flour, the crumb of the bread might just be a bit larger than normal. If your almond meal feels a bit chunky, you can blend it in a food processer to make it finer.

      Happy first time baking! I hope you enjoy the process and the results 🙂

    • Hi Kate,

      I have no idea, as I have never made a starter style yeast. If you feel like experimenting, I’d love to hear how it turns out!

  6. 5 stars
    This recipe is by far the best out there. One change I made was to use honey instead of inulin. Perhaps, I’m wrong, but I believe the yeast consumes the sugar/carbs in the honey (or enough that what’s left is negligible). I would be interested if any food scientist out there could either confirm this or debunk my theory.

  7. 5 stars
    I’ve made this twice. My husband said he likes this bread better than any of the others we’ve tried. I was wondering if you have any ideas what I might be doing wrong though, because both times the loaf has sunk in the middle while baking. Do you use a mixer to mix the dough or do you mix it by hand? I used a mixer both times.

    • Hi Val,

      First port of call – check the expiry on your baking powder! I always mix by hand, maybe try a batch by hand and see how that goes. Otherwise, I would suggest baking for a few minutes longer. I hope that helps:)

      • Thank you, my baking powder is okay, but I was wondering about the mixing by hand vs mixer. I’ll try the hand mixing and see if that helps. Thank you for the suggestions!

  8. 5 stars
    I’ve made plenty of Keto breads over the last few months and this one is definitely the best I’ve found so far. There is still a slight egg taste to the bread, but having the taste of the yeast really helps make it so satisfying to eat. The recipe is quick and simple to make. Because of how successful the bread was I’m really excited to try some of the other recipes on this site.

  9. Can monk fruit be used to replace the inulin? I can’t wait? It looked very expensive on Amazon! to try this but I don’t have inulin. Where do you buy it?

  10. 5 stars
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I just made this bread following the recipe exactly. The bread smelled delicious and tasted beyond delicious. This recipe will make it so easy to stick to my low carb lifestyle. I look forward to trying lots of your other recipes.

  11. 5 stars
    Echoing what so many here said already: tried so many keto bread recipes and finally found the BEST!!! I’m excited to have a yeasty bread again. And I’m thinking of making this my basic recipe and then adding things like blueberries or Lily’s chocolate chips or cinnamon or Italian seasoning. etc. Also a little bit of monk fruit sweetener or erythritol. Any harm in those additions?

    • Thank you for your kind words, Annette!

      I haven’t tried adding other ingredients, but I think a tablespoon of herbs or spices would work great. I’m not so sure about blueberries, as they can release a bit of extra moisture. If you try different flavors, I’d love to know how they turn out.

  12. 5 stars
    I’ve been making this bread for several months, and it always turns out great. I did make a small change, added 1/2 cup golden flax meal for the Omegas, and it still comes out perfect. Just wanted to let you know that this is the best keto bread recipe I’ve found, and to say thanks!

  13. Why is there Insulin in this recipe? The science behind Keto is to reduce carbs to reduce insulin release. Insulins action in the body to quickly pull energy into the cells, thus reducing blood levels of glucose. Elevated insulin means more energy gets pulled into the fat cells. Adding Insulin is the opposite of what a Keto diet means to health and weight loss, especially those with insulin resistance.

    Before “Keto” I was an every week bread baker. The house always had that soothing yeast homemade bread aroma. For months I have been trying everyone’s “best” bread recipes, only to be so let down….. NOW I have that delicious taste and aroma again. This is it guys, this bread hands down is the BEST. I had no xanthum gum so I added a bit more psyllium husk, I also rounded the yeast measurements cuz I love that yeast aroma and taste. It turned out WONDERFUL!! Don’t be afraid of this one guys!

  15. I just made your bread recipe. I very carefully followed the recipe and instructions. The final result was awesome. Thanks! One variation I had was the 20 minute proof time. It hadn’t risen much at all in 20 minutes so I left it. It about doubled in an hour and 10 minutes. It held most of it rise even after slicing it warm. I’ll definitely be making more.

  16. Just pulled my loaf out of the oven and it’s perfect and tasty with butter while it’s still hot. I made another recipe yesterday that turned out green and tasted terrible so thank you so much, this bread is awesome!! Grilled Cheese and Bacon and Tomato sandwiches ahead and so looking forward to it! Very Much Appreciated, Thank You!

  17. 5 stars
    Thank you for the lovely bread recipe. I like to add about 40 g of mixed seeds to the mix. My favourite way to eat it is with a drizzle of Sukrin Gold syrup.

  18. 5 stars
    Oh my! This stuff is awesome! I was skeptical as I live at high altitude (8000 ft) and have never been successful at making “regular ” bread. This came out beautifully. I love the texture and the flavor. Made French toast this AM with my Keto blueberry syrup. What a treat! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  19. 5 stars
    Many thanks for working out this recipe. This the closest thing to a “real” bread we‘ve come across. We‘ve done OK without breads but it’s so nice to have a tasty and faithful option.

  20. Baking my second loaf right now! Family loved having French toast this morning. This is the best bread recipe And I have tried many.
    I just subbed one teaspoon sugar for the yeast to feed on and it worked great! One teaspoon of sugar divided by 16 slices seems doable. My family and I thank you!

    • Hi Francesca,

      You sure can. I would recommend coconut oil, or another mild flavored olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil may be a bit over powering.

    • Hi Joyce,

      The inulin is essential for our bread. It is the food for the yeast, which provides rise, without it the bread will be flat.

    • Hi Jackie,

      The bread mixture is more of a batter than a dough, you could try pouring it into a muffin tin and baking for dinner rolls.

  21. I just made this bread and it completely exceeded my expectations! I made a coiple of alterations. one by mistake and the others out of necessity and by design. So here is some feedback that may be helpful to others. 1) I didn’t have psyllium husk powder and foubnd it was going to be pretty spendy. When it only needed 1 Tbsp it didn’t seem worth it so I researched it and found ground chia seed can be substituted.(Chia seed are less expensive in my neck of the woods). The texture was flawless so I’d call that a success. 2) I accidentally read the yeast as 2 Tablespoons instead of teaspoons so my yeast was actually triple the amount called for. It was wonderfully fluffy. I don’t know how it turns out with the normal amount of yeast but I know it is good the way I made it so I will continue to do it that way. 3) Lastly, I like my bread with a hint of sweetness so I added a pinch of pure powdered stevia and it was perfection! Thank you for a fantastic recipe!

    • Hi Lisa,

      I’m glad that the ground chia worked out for you, and 2 tablespoons of yeast! Wow, that would be one fluffy, yeasty loaf! Thanks for stopping by.

  22. This is my 2nd loaf, I made some changes added two scoops of collagen protein power, a tbsp of nutritional yeast flakes . So I increased the yeast to 3tsp and inulin to 11/2 tsp, baking power 11/2 tsp and 9eggs.
    It came out great . I wish I could send you a picture. I really like this bread but needed to add to it for nutrition about my self. Thank you

    • Hi Gay,

      The bread mixture is more of a batter than a dough, you could bake it in a muffin tin to make dinner rolls. I hope that helps 🙂

  23. I made this tonight. It is very good. I’ve been making various “new” recipes for Keto bread. Some with yeast, some no yeast. This one is by far the best. It’s moist, but not slimy. It has a nice/mild yeast scent. The texture I’d spot on. By far the best Keto Bread recipe to date.

  24. I’ve been searching, experimenting and baked more bread loaves than I can count, looking for something my whole family (we all eat keto) will agree on. This got the unanimous vote for the best Keto Bread! Thank you.

  25. I know one shouldn’t make sub bc it might not turn out the same. Though has anyone had experience making this without the insulin? I have vital wheat gluten, would that help instead? Thanks

    • Hi Simi,

      The inulin is the food for the yeast, which helps the bread rise. Vital wheat gluten doesn’t work the same, so substituting will stop the bread from rising as much. If you do want to take the risk, let me know how it goes.


  26. The only words I can use to describe this: IT’S REALLY BREAD! You have really cracked the secret code to Keto bread. It’s amazing. To see bread actually rise again – wow. I thought those days were over.

    I didn’t taste the egg so much, but if anyone does – I suggest you butter it and toast in a pan for French toast.

    You’ve won my heart with this one. I am making the pretzels today. I look forward to checking out the site.


    Can’t wait to try your pretzels!

    • Hi Jesamine,

      Thank you so much for your kind words, you’ve made my day! I’m sure you will love the pretzels (I know I do) 😉

  27. Made my first loaf of this bread today. My husband loved it! I thought it tasted a little eggy, but it is by far the best bread I have tried so far. Will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing it!

    • Hi Lori,

      It is a huge challenge to create a keto bread that is the same taste and texture as “normal” bread! Thank you for your kind words 🙂

    • Thank you so much Evelyn,
