This keto bread is simple and full of delicious flavor. The ingredients are super healthy, but that doesn’t take away from its amazingly chewy texture and taste!
Keto recipes that taste good are hard to find! A few of my favorite keto recipes are this macaroni and cheese, delicious brownies, and MUST TRY keto ice cream.
What is Keto Bread?
It doesn’t matter if you are following a keto diet or just looking for a healthier and delicious tasting bread. This keto bread is for everyone! A keto diet means that you follow a low carbohydrate diet. So you need food that fills you up without all carbohydrates. This bread does just that. It uses almond flour and flax seeds, which makes it delicious and hearty.
The texture alone is to die for. It’s so soft and chewy, just like you imagine bread tastes like. But then when you add the delicious flavors and realize there’s no sugar involved in making this, you’ll be hooked! Don’t let homemade bread scare you away! This recipe is delicious, healthy and easy… It’s the best of both worlds! And… if you want it to taste a little sweeter, add a teaspoon of cinnamon. It makes it so delicious!
Ingredients for Making Keto Bread
If you’re on a keto diet, you probably already have most of these ingredients in your kitchen. If not, then you should go ahead and get those things and have them on hand anyway. They are perfect for healthy recipes! See the recipe card at the bottom of the article for exact measurements.
- Almond powder: It is extremely low in carbs which is why it is commonly used in Keto diets.
- Flax seed meal: Flaxseeds make this bread hearty and has a nice nutty flavor.
- Quick rising yeast: Get a quick-rising (not instant!) yeast for this bread.
- Salt: This salt will enhance all the flavors of the bread.
- Baking soda: Be sure to use fresh baking soda. I always make sure my baking soda is less than 30 days old.
- Eggs: You will separate the eggs for this recipe. When whipping the egg whites, make sure they form a stiff peak before mixing them with everything else.
- Liquid Stevia: This helps remove the egg taste.
- Apple Cider Vinegar: This makes the bread soft and chewy.
- Melted butter: Butter adds flavor and a chewy texture to bread.
This keto bread has a short prep time and takes less than 45 minutes to bake. It’s super simple, and even if you’re just starting out, you can cook anything!
- Preheat and prepare the pan: Preheat oven to 350° and line a 9×5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Mix the dry ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, flaxseed meal, baking powder (for flavor, not as a leavening agent), salt and baking soda.
- Whisk: In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, stevia, vinegar and melted butter. Then, in another bowl, whip the egg whites until they reach very stiff peaks.
- Add the egg yolks to the dry ingredients then incorporate the egg whites: Add the egg yolk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix using a hand mixer or stand mixer until well blended. Mix ⅓ of the egg whites into the batter to loosen the batter. It will still be quite thick, so as gently as possible, fold in the remaining egg whites until they are fully incorporated and no traces of white remain.
- Pour and cook: Pour into prepared loaf pan and cover with foil. Then bake for 25 minutes before removing the foil and baking for another 25 minutes. Let cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.
Is Keto Bread Dairy Free?
This recipe calls for melted butter, but you can easily swap it out for coconut oil or avocado oil if you’re trying to make a dairy-free version of this bread!
How to store leftovers
Keto Bread should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Store it like wholemeal bread and only slice it when you eat it. It will keep for 7 to 10 days in the fridge!

For a sweeter bread, try adding a teaspoon of ground cinnamon! It goes very well with the nutty taste of bread.
