Keto Bread Recipe
This is the easiest bread you’ll ever make! It takes just 5 minutes to whip up and with only four ingredients you’ll have yourself a delicious bread alternative in no time at all.
- 150g ground almonds
- 30g butter, softened
- 6 medium eggs
- 3 tsp baking powder
Start by pre heating your oven to 200c. Cut some greaseproof paper to line the inside of your loaf pan.
To a bowl add your softened butter and eggs and whisk these together until the butter is broken down. Next add the almond flour and baking powder and whisk once more.
Because keto bread does not have as many rising agents as conventional bread, it’s a good idea to whisk the mixture for a couple of minutes to get lots of air into the batter. This will give you a lovely light texture.
Now add the batter to your loaf pan, and be sure to scrape down the sides of your bowl to get all the ingredients out.
Bake for 25-30 minutes; the keto bread will rise a little to create a lovely rich golden crust which has a lovely shine to it.
You can check that your keto bread is cooked like you would with a cake; by using a skewer to prick into the centre. If the skewer comes out clean the bread is baked.
Turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool before slicing.

What does keto bread taste like?
Keto bread has a rich and dense texture, and the high fat and protein content makes it incredibly filling and satisfying. It is more moist than usual bread, you can either enjoy it freshly sliced, or toast it to add a little crunch.
The flavour is very subtle, allowing you to add whatever fillings or toppings that you please, just like regular bread!
How many carbs are in a loaf of keto bread?
Just one slice of bread from the leading brand has 18g of carbohydrates. An entire loaf of my keto bread has just 6g! Therefore in one slice there is 0.6g carbs (based on 10 slices per loaf)
There is also a filling 7.6g protein per slice.
Do I need to refridgerate it?
Yes, it is best to store your low carb bread in the fridge in an air tight container. It will last around 7 days like this. I also recommend not slicing the bread ahead of time to prolong the shelf life and keep your keto bread nice and moist.
Can I freeze it?
Yes, your bread will freeze and keep for 6 months. But be sure to thoroughly thaw and do not refreeze. Keto bread is best enjoyed toasted once frozen and thawed.
Where can I buy keto bread in the UK?
Keto has become a popular lifestyle choice for many and with that many great products have come to market that offer convenience for when you don’t wish to bake (although with how easy this recipe is, why would you not!) Here are some products I can recommend trying out:
- Nuco Organic Coconut Wraps
- Carb Zone Low Carb Tortillas (The packaging doesn’t feel gourmet but they do taste good)
- Vegan Keto bread rolls
- Ketogenic Rye Bread
- Hovis Lower Carb (not strictly keto, but a low carb regular bread)
Is keto bread gluten free?
Yes! My keto bread recipe is gluten free making it ideal for coeliacs who are looking for a home baked bread alternative.
However you like, essentially! Because it is a moist loaf than regular bread I liken keto bread to a rye bread: very dense and moist. Because of this I particularly love eating it as an open sandwich, topped with all kinds of things:
- Toasted with peanut butter
- Toasted with scrambled eggs and crumbled feta
- Topped with torn mozzarella and basil
- Topped with smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill
- Topped with smashed avocado, coriander and lime
- Topped with cheddar and Worcestershire sauce and popped under the grill to melt.
