Keto Bread

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

This keto bread recipe is a new and improved version of those we’ve baked in the past.

We’ve really nailed it with this one, you’ll love the taste and aroma.

We know when a recipe is a hit, everyone talks about it and wants the recipe. The feedback is it’s the best keto bread recipe anyone has tried.

Why is this keto bread so special?

Most keto bread recipes lack a special ingredient that most high carb baked doughs have.

An ingredient that when it wafts past your nose it instantly turns your senses on.

The Keto Bread Secret Ingredient

The secret ingredient that makes this keto bread so good is yeast.

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

Look at the keto bread stretch marks from rising in the oven. Cant wait to cut it open.

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

Inulin is a soluble prebiotic fiber that is food for the yeast to consume like it also feeds on sugar.

Why Add Yeast To Low Carb 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 rubbish 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.

The sense of smell is every bit as important as taste when it comes to a foods desirability. We tested that theory with our famous ketogenic soft pretzels recipe.

Ready for the oven, our keto bread mix has some special ingredients.

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.

One loaf of keto bread makes 16 serves, 1 serve is one slice.

Slices of this keto bread can be stored in sandwich bags and frozen up to 3 months.

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 loaded with smashed avocado and a fried egg for breakfast.

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