Almond flour will become one of your best friends while on keto. This mild and delicious bread will remind you of a much less-sweet banana bread and goes excellent with savory and sweet spreads or toppings.

  7. Add half of the whipped whites to the bowl, and fold gently with a spatula.
  8. Add in the other half of the whipped whites, and combine.
  9. Line an 8.5in by 4.5in bread pan with parchment paper, and coat it with baking spray.
  10. Add the batter to the loaf pan, and work the batter from the sides to the middle of the loaf, so that it rises properly.

#3 Coconut Flour Bread

Coconut bread

Great as toast or as a side to a keto-centric meal, this dense bread has a ton of nutritional benefits. Word to the wise: you may need a tad more liquid, or you may need to add an extra egg in most recipes. 


  • 6 organic eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F).
  2. Use a medium bowl, mix eggs, coconut oil, and honey (optional).
  3. Mix until all the wet ingredients are combined.
  4. Add coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking powder, and salt to the wet mixture and mix until the batter is lump-free.
  5. Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Scoop batter into a greased bread pan (I used a medium bread pan, 7 3/8″ x 3 5/8″ x 2″).
  7. Bake bread until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.

#4 No-Eggs Keto Bread

No-Eggs Keto Bread

Here’s a bread for all the vegans and baby chick fans out there! With a little practice, this bread can be light and airy and have a wonderful golden color.


  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1.5 tablespoon whole psyllium husk
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 
  • 530 ml lukewarm water


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F). Line a loaf pan 9 inches x 5 inches with a piece of parchment paper. Slightly oil the paper to make sure the bread doesn’t stick to the pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients, order doesn’t matter. Combine with a spatula or spoon then use your hand to knead the dough for about 1-2 minutes The batter is very moist at first, getting dryer as you go. After 2 minutes, it should come together easily to form a dough. If not, too sticky, add more husk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, knead for 30 sec and see how it goes. The dough will always be a bit moist, but it shouldn’t stick to your hands at all. If so, the bread will be too moist when baked.
  4. Set aside 10 minutes to let the fiber fully absorb the liquid.
  5. Shape the dough as you want your bread to look like when baked. I mean you want a lovely round bun on top of your loaf so shape a cylinder of dough that matches the length of the pan but DO NOT press/ flatten the top of your loaf or you will end up with a more dense/tight crumb. Keep the top round shape, it is what will create a bread loaf that is soft and light with holes in the crumb.
  6. Slightly rub your hand with water and massage the surface of the bread to remove any holes and create a smooth surface.
  7. Bake for 50-55 minutes in the center of the oven, fan-bake mode is the best.
  8. After 50 minutes, prick the center of the loaf with a skewer to test. If it comes out clean, it is cooked. If not, it means the bread is still wet inside, cover the loaf pan with a piece of foil, and keep baking for 20-30 minutes until cooked in the middle.
  9. Lift the bread out of the pan using the parchment paper.
  10. Fully cool down on a rack before slicing – at least 3 hours for the best result.
  11. Slice into 16 slices. Store in the fridge up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months, in airtight containers.
