This recipe is better than any homemade ketogenic bread we’ve had yet. That can be attributed mostly to the aroma and texture achieved by adding yeast.

Making keto bread is one of our favorite low-carb foods to make as it satisfies that part of the diet many people miss.

  1. Preheat your oven to 170C/340F.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add the yeast and inulin, followed by the warm water. Mix well and leave to proof in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the almond flour, psyllium, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Add the melted butter and eggs and mix well.
  5. Add the proofed yeast and mix well.
  6. Once the mixture is combined, pour into a 9x5in loaf pan that has been lined with parchment paper.
  7. Leave your batter to prove for 20 minutes in a warm spot, covered with a tea towel.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, the bread is cooked when golden brown and makes a hollow sound when tapped.
  9. Remove from the tin and leave to cool on a rack.

Once it has been baked and cooled slice the keto bread loaf into 16 slices and enjoy straight away or store in the fridge for later.

Keto Bread
New and Improved Keto Bread Recipe – The best homemade version you’ll find.

Most keto bread recipes lack a special ingredient that most high-carb baked doughs have. An ingredient that when it wafts past your nose instantly turns your senses on and also makes your keto bread light and fluffy.

How To Store Keto Bread

Store Keto Bread in the fridge for 3 days, it can also be stored in sandwich bags and frozen for up to 3 months.

One loaf of keto bread makes 16 serves. 1 serving is one slice and has 1g net carbs.

Secret For The Best Keto Bread

The secret ingredient that makes this keto bread so good is yeast. Yeast is what gives this keto bread recipe a cut above the rest.

Yep, we know, “yeast”. The reason that yeast is left out of keto bread recipes is that commonly it requires sugar to rise.

What most people don’t know is that you can bake using a natural product called inulin instead.

Inulin (not “insulin”) is a soluble prebiotic fiber that is food for the yeast to consume (like it also feeds on sugar) allowing our keto bread recipe to rise and become soft and fluffy.

Why Add Yeast To Keto Bread Recipes?

There are three reasons we like to add yeast to some of our keto baked goods.

  1. Keto Breads are typically dense and often grainy and dry. Yeast won’t make it as light and fluffy as the high carb bread that we’re used to in the supermarket. But it does make it lighter and more doughy than other low-carb bread.
  2. Inulin that the yeast feeds on is a super prebiotic and has a multitude of health benefits.
  3. The aroma. We have used yeast a number of times in our keto recipes purely for the aroma.

Your sense of smell is every bit as important as taste when it comes to the desirability of food and yeast does that with bread.

We tested that theory with our famous ketogenic soft pretzels recipe.

About Our Keto Bread

We have tried and baked tonnes of variations of keto bread. This recipe was a work in progress through lots of trial and error.

We looked high and low to come up with a solution that would not only taste great but bake like real bread with the same aroma.

The bread needed to be yeasty, fluffy, and soft without the carbs required for normal bread to rise yet also stay within the keto diet macros.

This is, without a doubt, the best keto bread recipe we’ve both made and tried. Just try it once (exactly per the instructions) and you’ll never try another again.

This Keto bread is also Gluten-Free, Paleo Friendly, and of course very low-carb.

How Many Carbs Per Serving Of Keto Bread?

Due to the fact that we don’t use any sugar or high carb flower our Keto bread contains only 1g net carbs per serve.

To make this keto bread even more ketogenic serve it with quality grass-fed butter that also has near-zero carbs per serve.

Kerry Gold is our favorite butter.

Calories In Keto Bread

There are only 140 calories per slice of our special Keto bread recipe.

This keto bread is baked using only the most ideal ingredients for a ketogenic diet.

Two slices of this ultra low carb keto bread make the perfect combination for sandwiches and burgers still keeping within your daily macro limits.

Servings Per Loaf of Keto bread

This loaf makes 16 slices, which is one slice per serve.

For counting your calories and macros simply multiply by each slice, eg, two slices are 2 x 140 calories = 280 calories total.

Can I Substitute The Keto bread Ingredients?

We get this question a lot with almost all of our recipes.

Sometimes you can get away with substituting ingredients but with our Keto bread recipe, it is recommended that you don’t use anything except for what we use to bake it. It took a lot of experimentation to come up with this keto bread recipe and to achieve the texture and flavor.

So the short answer is no. I’m sorry on this occasion, please stick to the recommendations above if you want the best Keto bread you’ve ever tasted.

Keto Bread Meal Ideas

I like to eat my keto bread warm with a slab of butter. But it goes well in the toaster and it’s an excellent replacement for hamburger buns. Try our flavored butter recipes for some variety.

You can make keto french toast with it. I love to eat my keto bread toasted with Maple Ricotta topping for breakfast.

Try drying it out in a low oven to make Keto Croutons. Put it in a food processor for crumbing chicken, fish, or schnitzels.

  1. Mine turned out perfectly well; I baked it in my toaster oven at 350 degrees (it doesn’t go to 340) for 20 minutes, then turned it down to 325 for 5 minutes, and it looks just like the picture. Thank you!
