I am a bread person. I grew up on bread. It was the main staple of my diet for the longest time. And I miss eating bread. A. Lot. … My food and healthy eating journey started back in early 2013 when I started phasing out processed foods, but late last summer I went a step further and went Primal/Paleo or almost Ketogenic. So, being the bread person that I am I needed a replacement staple and this is what I came up with.

Now, look – there are tons of Keto Bread recipes or low carb bread recipes on the Internet. Accordingly I did not have to re-invent the wheel, but I decided to add my own spin to some recipes as I was not necessarily impressed with some of the results based on other people’s recipes. This is just one of those keto Bread variations that is just different enough to really make me love this keto bread.
Why is this Keto Bread Recipe so different?
This bread is soft and fluffy. Unlike many other recipes that use Almond flour, the keto bread made from this recipe is soft and fluffy, but still strong enough to make good sandwiches. It does not feel to thick or dense and the secret ingredient that I use seems to make the difference.
Most keto bread recipes use the same ingredients and this one is no different. I guess my personal spin on this is adding this one ingredient and by upping up some of the amounts used for some other ingredients. What I love about this Keto Bread is how easy it is to make and how little time is required to make it. On top of that, I do not need a whole lot of equipment. My trusty NutriBullet (buy it at Amazon here (affiliate link)) is all I need + the usual things like measuring cups, knife, spoon, etc.
Total time needed for preparation is about 10 minutes + about 30 minutes to bake this delicious keto bread.
Here are the ingredients needed for my version of a Keto Bread:
- 6 Eggs
- ¼ cup Cream Cheese
- ¼ cup Kerrygold Butter
- 3 tbsps. Baking Powder
- 1.5 cups of Almond Flower
- Pinch of Salt
Yep, that is all you need to bake this fantastic Keto Bread. Now, follow these steps to the dot and ideally you will be able to enjoy this ketogenic bread within the hour.
Instructions to bake a loaf of Keto Bread
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees (sea-level – adjust if needed if you live at higher altitude).
- Separate egg yolks from egg whites. Add the ¼ cup of cream cheese to the egg whites and mix nicely in your favorite food processor or blender. I use my NutriBullet for that.
- Melt the ¼ butter either on a stove or in a microwave. I usually microwave the butter for 25 seconds followed by 2 spurts of 15 seconds. (I use a measuring set like this to get the right amount of butter)
- Mix the melted butter with the egg yolks.
- Now add the baking powder, salt, and half of the Almond flour to the egg yolk/butter mix. Lightly stir with a spoon and then add half of the egg whites/cream cheese mix. Mix well using your food processor of choice. Now add the remaining ingredients and again -mix it using your favorite food processor.
- Take a bread pan/baking form and grease it well. Now pour the bread mix from your food processor into the baking form. Place the baking form in your oven and let it bake for about 30-35 minutes.
- At the 30 minute marker I usually check the inside of the bread to make sure it is fully done. If all looks good, I get the bread out of the oven and let it cool down for about 30 minutes. If I am hungry I cannot wait that long + a slice of warm, freshly baked bread is simply irresistible.
I enjoy my keto low carb bread in different ways, but some of my favorites are Braunschweiger Liver Sausage, smoked salmon, just Kerrygold Butter, or with Avacado Mayonnaise and sliced (hard-boiled) eggs. Of course you can also toast this bread and then make small sandwiches from it. Unfortunately it does not rise as much as conventional bread, but this works for me.
Based on the ingredients being used, I would expect this keto bread about 1 gram of carbs per slice. This is a guess, please decide for yourself how you rate this.
