When I speak to people who are looking to take on the ketogenic lifestyle but have not fully committed themselves I encounter the same concern most every time. ” I can give up everything but bread” I will admit this was a concern for me as well. I had been weaning myself off of bread for years before I even started my ketogenic journey. Years of practice and desperation (mostly desperation) gave me the push to give keto a chance.
I created this recipe to bust the excuses! You don’t have to eliminate things, just modify them. After all, we’re in this for the long haul and it’s easier to stick to a lifestyle where you have options. Can I get an Amen!
The Easiest Bread Recipe
Bread is a staple to have in your refrigerator. Y0u can simply enjoy it with butter or use it as a base for many other dishes (french toast being my favorite). Given this reason, I decided to create a recipe so easy I could whip up a batch in as little time possible using the least amount of dishes. Don’t get me wrong I love my food processor and my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, but I do not like having to wash them (especially when I don’t have to). You can re-create this recipe in as little as one bowl! And guess what? You won’t be sacrificing flavor or texture for convenience.
Delicious Low Carb Bread- Ketogenic
- 6 Eggs
- 1 Cup Almond Flour
- 3/4 Cup Almond or Coconut Milk
- 1/2 Cup Butter melted
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
- 2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tsp Salt
- dash Sesame Seeds
Pre-heat the oven to 350Fo
Beat eggs by hand or in a stand mixer until 2X-3X in volume. Add melted butter and non- dairy milk.
Combine all dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix.
Slowly combine wet and dry mixture. Check for consistency, the final mixture should not be too runny nor thick but just in between. Add milk (to loosen) or coconut flour (to thicken) until desired texture is achieved.
Pour the mixture into a greased 8"X4" loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes. Optional: Sprinkle sesame seeds on top for extra pazzaz.
Insert a wooden toothpick to confirm the bread is fully cooked. The toothpick will come out clean if it's ready!
Set aside to cool for 30 minutes.
Slice and enjoy!
Before You Begin…
- When beating the eggs make sure you don’t over do it! You’re looking for the eggs to increase 2x-3x in volume. Once you’ve emulsified the egg yolk and the egg white you should be done. Over beating the eggs can lead to a crumbly bread texture in the end, we don’t want that.
- You may have to adjust the amount of milk you add to the recipe based on the absorbency of your coconut flour. All brands are different and will yield different results. Start with 1/2 cup of coconut or almond milk and work your way up. You’re looking for the consistency to be fluid enough to fill the shape of your loaf pan with just a little help from your spatula.
- Keto/Paleo bread generally need to be cooked for a longer period of time. If you think the bread needs another 10 minutes don’t be afraid to leave it in the oven for a bit longer.
Spice It Up! Don’t be afraid to add your favorite combination of herbs and spices. Mine is garlic and rosemary *drools*
