Low Carb Keto Bread Recipe
If you want a Low Carb Keto Bread Recipe, this is it! Of course, it isn’t going to be exactly like your traditional bread recipe, but when you miss bread, this is a great substitution! Perfect for a side to dinner as well as making sandwiches. Just make sure to follow our tips for toasting before eating!
Low Carb Keto Bread Recipe
I’ve had so many people ask if they could cook my 90-Second Bread in the oven or if they could prepare multiple batches to last for several days. After I multiplied my 90-Second French Toast into a large loaf, I knew I could do the same for 90-Second Bread.
I increased my original recipe several times and made the perfect-sized loaf that cooked fabulously in the oven. As always, I am going to be 100% honest with you. Just like my 90-Second Bread, I would not suggest eating this Keto/Low Carb Bread straight out of the oven. Instead, cut a slice and fry it in a skillet in butter or toast it up in a toaster oven or air fryer.
I don’t know why this step makes such a difference, but I promise it does. I’ve heard so many people saying they hated 90-Second Bread until they found my version, and it changed their opinion. Still, the key is doing something after the bread comes out of the oven to crisp it up. Otherwise, it does taste eggy. However, it will knock your socks off once you crisp it up.

HOW TO MAKE BREAD KETO-FRIENDLY
We all love bread. However, bread isn’t the most keto-friendly thing in our pantry. To make bread keto-friendly, we have to make a couple of substitutions. First, we need to cut out the flour and replace it with coconut flour. Coconut flour is great for the keto diet because it doesn’t have a lot of carbs yet still provides a floury texture to the bread. The next ingredient to make bread keto-friendly is eggs. Eggs provide a fluffy thickness to the bread, so it forms a loaf. Now you have a keto-friendly loaf of bread that your whole family will enjoy!
- Coconut Flour– This is a substitute for all-purpose flour. It combines all the ingredients together and makes the bread fluffy.
- Eggs– This helps to make the bread even fluffier. The eggs add volume to the mixture since coconut flour doesn’t make it as fluffy as regular flour.
- Butter– This adds a nice creaminess to the bread to make it dense.
- Sour Cream– This gives the bread moisture, so it’s not crumbly.
- Baking Powder
- Cheddar Cheese– This makes the bread more savory.
Steps to Making Low Carb Bread:
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Melt the butter and set it aside until it is room temperature.
Step 3: Once the butter is at room temperature, add all other ingredients and stir to combine.
Step 4: Grease a loaf pan or line with parchment paper.
Step 5: Pour batter into a loaf pan and cook for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean.
Step 6: Fry each slice in butter or toast in a toaster or air fryer before serving.
Tip: If you skip this step, your bread may taste eggy and not like fluffy bread.
What If I Don’t Have Coconut Flour?
You can always sub for almond flour if you don’t have coconut flour. Remember, the ratio for switching from coconut flour to almond flour is for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour, use 1 cup of almond flour.
Why Is There Cheese in This Low Carb Bread?
The cheese adds a savory flavor to the bread. The cheese also melts into the bread, which helps the bread to stick together.
What If I Don’t Have Sour Cream?
If you don’t have sour cream, you can substitute full-fat Greek yogurt instead!
What Can I Eat With This Bread?
You can eat this bread as is, with some butter, as a sandwich, with cream cheese, etc.

IS this with whole eggs or just eg whites? And do you need to beat the eggs? I have another recipe that I have tried and I have to beat the egg white to stiff peaks
I use whole eggs and I don’t beat them into stiff peaks.
I don’t have a loaf shaped pan. Could you use like a square metal pan or something else to cook the mix in?
I’m sure you could. I’d just try to use a pan that is about the same size, no matter what shape it is.
can I use homemade coconut flour for this? I have access to fresh coconuts.
I haven’t used homemade coconut flour but you could sure try it.
Can I use plain soy yugort instead of the sour cream? does the bread taste too eggy? Thankx
I’ve only fixed the recipe as is so I’m not sure. I don’t think the bread tastes eggy.
Thanks much to you for your bread recipes! I had already made the single serving keto bread in the microwave and loved it; but like a lot of others, I wanted a way to make enough to store use for a couple of days. This recipe was a perfect solution!
Do you use real butter? I usually do, but its really hard for me to use it in that quantity in anything. I’m an old school calorie/fat counter, although I try to keep track of my carbs as well. Daughter’s veggie, so I try to supplement her protein intake also.
I made modifications to the loaf to adjust the fat and calorie content and used 2 cups egg beaters (made of egg whites, which lightens up the eggish taste as per your recipe instructions), mashed 2 ripe avocados (equivalent to 5 Tbsp) and added 5 Tbsp of melted stick margarine as the fat, added 1/4 tsp of salt to match the ratio of baking powder and salt in self rising flour, and baked it in a standard 9″ X 5″ Pyrex loaf pan lined with parchment. It turned out very well and was delicious, but it wasn’t as tall as I’d like. I’m not sure if that was due to the avocado/margarine adaptation or the size of the pan, but I think I’ll make it in my next smaller loaf pan next time which is 8 1/2 X 4 1/2 so it will be a little bit narrower and taller.
Any input you have would be appreciated.
Thank you again for the great recipes!
Glad you enjoyed it. As far as the loaf, I’m not sure. I’ve never tried adding avocado. I do use real butter.
Can I make this in the air fryer?
I’m not sure I personally haven’t tested it in the air fryer.
What size loaf pan?
A standard loaf pan.
Can it be made in a bread maker?
I don’t have any experience with a bread maker. My gut says not for this recipe.
Can you use almond flour in place of coconut flour?
It is not a perfect science and I can’t guarantee the outcome but the general conversion is 1/4 cup coconut flour equals 1 cup almond flour.
Hi there, do you have a recipe for cloud bread?
