Why is this keto bread recipe 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 and also make your keto bread light a fluffy.

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 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 the desirability of food.

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.

How To Make Keto Bread

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

How to make fresh baked keto bread
When you make this keto bread you’ll see stretch marks from rising while being baked in the oven.
  1. Preheat your oven to 170C/340F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the almond flour, psyllium, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Push the dry mixture to the sides of the bowl, creating a well in the center right down to the base of the bowl. Add the inulin and yeast to the well, followed by the warm water.
  4. Mix the warm water into the yeast and inulin only. Leave for the yeast activate for 10 minutes.
  5. Add the melted butter and eggs 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.

About Our Keto Bread

We have tried and baked tonnes of variation 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 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 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.

    • Thank you so much Evelyn,

      We have added it to the recipe card. If you can’t see the changes you may need clear your browser cache.

      Thanks again.

      Matt 🙂

  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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.

    *bow*

    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) 😉

  3. 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.

      Gerri

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    • 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 🙂

  6. 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

  7. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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!
