Keto Bread Loaf with 1 cut sliced and buttered

This Keto Bread Recipe is an excellent grain-free, low carb toasting bread. It has a close crumb that holds together well. When you toast it, it keeps its shape, browns nicely, and is sturdy. This zero net carb bread recipe makes awesome avocado toast and is perfect for dipping a buttered slice into your egg yolk!

The main ingredients in this recipe are almond flour, eggs, collagen powder, and psyllium husk. The eggs are whole, no separating and folding into your batter, thus saving time! To enhance the flavor, I added a small amount of sweetener as well as melted butter. It is just enough to give the loaf a nice aroma without making it a sweet bread. This is likely to be my go to recipe whenever I want to make toast or grilled cheese sandwiches!

Why I created my own Keto Bread Recipe

When you start the Keto diet, it is very likely you will miss your bread. For the most part, I only miss it when I want toast, or a grilled sandwich. I have never been a huge sandwich eater unless it was toasted in some way, shape, or form. I tried buying low carb bread, only to find out it tasted like cardboard, and I hated it! So, I went about trying several recipes that I found on the internet to create a loaf of bread that would satisfy Grumpy and me both

There wasn’t a single recipe that I tried that we wouldn’t eat. To be quite honest, I made the Diet Doctor Psyllium Rolls several times when I first started to make bread. Then, I made Cassidy’s Craveable Creations Authentic Bread Recipe and made them into slider buns.

What I thought about the homemade keto bread recipes I tried

The Diet Doctor rolls were fine and was the first keto bread like recipe I made that Grumpy actually would eat. The one thing I didn’t like was they felt rubbery in my mouth. Probably because of the psyllium. However, they smell amazing when baking. Nice and buttery and it felt like yeast bread was in the oven.

For me, Cassidy’s recipe was a step up from Diet Doctor. I made Keto Slider Buns with her recipe. She added the stevia for one, which made it much more pleasant. I even subbed the Psyllium Husks for the powder and they turned out great and not as gummy. But, I still wanted to try a bread that had collagen powder, or protein powder in it to see if it would amp up the texture and give me a more. So, that was my next natural step. To take what I had learned and attempt my own loaf!

How I made my own Homemade Bread Recipe

  • I used Psyllium Husks (not the powder).
  • I used the French Vanilla Stevia in the recipe (like Cassidy did).
  • Egg whites were not folded into the batter. I added the eggs whole and only used 4.
  • The bread “batter” is not shaped with your hands. It is added to the loaf pan like a quick bread and the top smoothed out.
Great for avocado toast!

My thoughts on Keto Bread with Almond Flour

I wasn’t sure if I was going to regret how I made my recipe or not. I had no idea how the bread would turn out and I got lucky on my first try! The loaf browned up nicely, came out of the pan easily, and was able to be sliced while still warm!

I enjoyed this keto bread fresh out of the oven with a little butter, toasted with butter, and with some mashed avocado and crispy bacon. This bread would also be amazing for making seasoned croutons for your salad!

I highly recommend using Collagen Powder this recipe. The body it gives the bread in this recipe as well as the tender yet firm crumb. I feel this ingredient is what aids in helping to hold the bread together and won’t make it without it!

    I looove that you have made a nice Keto bread possible and shared it with us! I was wondering if I can store the bread at room temp or should I keep it in the fridge? … also, have you tried freezing the loaves? (so can I make multiple loaves and store them in the freezer) Blessings to you!

    • Shelby Law Ruttan April 23, 2019 at 6:08 pm - Reply

      Hi Lolli, I’ve let it sit on the counter a couple of days, but I would store it in the refrigerator if it lasts longer than that. I haven’t frozen it yet, but think that it should be ok frozen. Just seal it well and make sure no air is in the packaging. I also might slice it before freezing it so I could just take what I wanted out instead of a whole loaf. thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the bread!

    I made keto naan with psyllium and it upset our digestive systems for days. It was like cooking with laxative. I know several of the keto breads call for it but I won’t cook with it again. Is there a substitute? I really do miss good bread that you can toast.

    • Shelby Law Ruttan July 12, 2019 at 8:15 am - Reply

      Hi Sandy, yes, you can! After I read your question this morning, I decided to remake this recipe, eliminating the psyllium husks. I subbed 1/4 cup coconut flour and 1 tsp of xanthan gum. My reasons for these substitutions are thickening and binding. It turned out great with a really nice crumb. I took a few photos and will update my post with this info later, but wanted to let you know as soon as possible what you can do to eliminate the psyllium.

    Can I substitute Collagen powder?

    • Shelby Law Ruttan August 9, 2019 at 8:38 pm - Reply

      Hi Judy, I haven’t made this without collagen powder so I can’t say how the recipe would turn out. You could try substituting whey and see how that works. If you do, please let me know how it turned out!

    Is there a way to make this recipe into burger bins?

      Hi Lynn, this particular recipe will not work as burger buns. I have a keto slider roll recipe. If you search for it on the search bar you should be able to find it easily.

    Hi Shelby 🙋‍♀️,

    thaaaank you sooooo much for this delicious keto bread recipe 👍👌👍👌👍! This one is the best so far and I’ve tried really many many keto bread recipes!

    On my second try I added 3 tbsp psyllium husk and it’s getting better and better 😁😊☺ and on top I added poppy seeds – ooooooh sooooooo yummy 👌👌👌!

    Now is the next bread in the oven and I added instant yeast and I can’t wait to get it out if the oven and give it a try 😊

    Nice greetings from Germany,
    Ela

      Hi Ela, so glad to hear you are happy with the recipe and I think it’s great you’ve worked on it. I’m really curious how the yeast works with it! Thank you for stopping by! Shelby

        Hi Shelby 🙋‍♀️,

        the instant yeast in the batter was great, I let it sit for at least 30 minutes and the batter almost doubled the size and the taste and texture was very very close to the “traditional” bread 👍👌👍🤗!!

        Next time I will add also potato fibers, let’s see how this will turn out!?!

        Nice greetings from Germany,
        Ela 😘

    Can this bread be made without the stevia. I cannot tolerate the taste of stevia 😒

    • Shelby Law Ruttan July 31, 2020 at 6:00 am - Reply

      Hi Cheryl, you can make this with any keto friendly sweetener you prefer. Enjoy! Shelby
