Making the BEST keto bread

Print recipe

Ever wondered how to make keto friendly bread? This delicious recipe is easy to prepare and uses common keto ingredients (without cream of tartar)!

It only takes 10 minutes to get this low carb bread into the oven. In less than an hour, you’ll have warm, fresh keto bread for your family to enjoy. I make a loaf of this bread weekly and will make sandwiches and sometimes just melt butter on top of it. It really fits the bill when I’m craving a slice but want to stick to my keto diet.

You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer with the paddle attachment for this recipe. I like to use the stand mixer because it does all the work for me!

Start by preheating the oven and lining a loaf pan with parchment paper. The parchment paper prevents the bread from sticking to the pan and makes for easy cleanup.

In a large bowl or stand mixer, add the eggs, flaxseed meal, butter, and water. Mix until smooth and bubbles start to form.

Add the remaining ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined and thick. Scrape the batter into the loaf pan.

Bake for 45 minutes or until bread is golden brown. A toothpick should come out clean when you put it through the middle of the loaf.

I often toast the bread and top it with butter, or use the slices to make a keto grilled cheese. This bread is also a key ingredient in my Keto Sausage Stuffing recipe.

This bread stores well in the fridge or freezer. Store it in the fridge for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to a month!

These keto dinner rolls are a keto-friendly version of sweet Hawaiian rolls. Craving a bagel? These Keto Everything Bagels are delicious by themselves or with a little cream cheese on top.

    I’m breastfeeding and baby is sensitive to dairy. Do you think olive oil or coconut oil would work in place of the melted butter?

      Yes! I have not tried it, but I believe coconut oil or olive oil should work. Congratulations on the new baby!

    This bread is amazing! It tastes like eating a light oat bread-simply delicious. Thank you! I have enjoyed a piece with salads, with eggs, and even for “dessert”. I softened up cream cheese and blended some blackberries in it. Spread on a piece of Keto Bread, it was sweet and tasty with nothing to add!

    Is that really 1 Tbls. of baking powder? Seems like 1 tsp. Would be more like it. Afraid to use precious Almond flour and mess it up. Thank you.

      1 tbsp is the correct amount. Almond flour takes a little bit more baking powder to rise compared to regular flour. Enjoy!

    This bread was rather nice . First time making any keto bread. I was very surprised. I added a little chopped rosemary & some garlic powder in the mix. Will be making again.

    I was wondering if another flour, like coconut, might work? I’m intolerant to almonds, especially almond flour.

      Hi There! Unfortunately coconut flour doesn’t work quite the same as almond flour. Basic rule of thumb is that you use 1/4-1/3 the amount of almond flour and replace it with coconut flour…. sometimes it works and other times it doesn’t. I will be working on some nut-free recipes in the future.

    Can yiu make the bread minus the flax? My husband is doing keto, but I am the bread maker and avoid flax while pregnant.

      I haven’t tested this without the flax, so its hard to say. There are lots of great recipes online without flax, so that may be your best bet!

    Best Keto bread I have tried so far! I love the little bit of crunchiness with the ground flax meal.

    I just took a loaf out of the oven and it is delicious! I’m following keto but my brother is diabetic. Do you know the total carbs? He can’t deduct the fiber and I need to know the exact total carbs so he knows how much insulin to take. Thanks so much!

    I purchased your book last week and started keto yesterday. I made your tuna cakes yesterday and I just finished making the bread. Both items are delicious and your book, Simply Keto, is wonderful. I have purchased books on keto in the last few months and ended up returning them within days. Your book is so easy to follow and you have inspired me so much. I thank you for inspiring me. I am so looking forward to this journey and plan on purchasing your other book, Beyond Keto as soon as possible. Plan on making the Swedish meatballs tomorrow.

    Thank you once again.
