I have been making Maria’s bread in my convection oven for a while and I had to lower the temp considerably to make sure it didn’t burn on the outside (even with a shorter baking time). I have a “portable” convection oven and I had always assumed that convection was the way to go for baking. Then I read some more about it and saw that convection is best for meats, etc. but not for baking, and I tried using the ‘normal” baking setting. My bread was MUCH better baked on normal. I used the temperature in the recipe and the timing and it came out perfect. No monkeying around with settings or duration.
Unlike other low-carb bagels that require conventional cheese to bind them together, this keto bread recipe uses psyllium husk to create the same dense texture. You may want to enjoy these bagels split in half, since each one contains 7 net carbs. Keep every bite more Bulletproof and use grass-fed ghee, swap white vinegar for apple cider vinegar, trade olive oil for avocado oil, and avoid eating psyllium, garlic, or sesame seeds too often.
Hey there… I’m new to keto, so I’m hoping my questions don’t come across as really stupid. Your bread looks great, and if I can get bread again, then that’s simply awesome. The pictures remind me of banana bread. Is there a way of adding this flavor without going insanely overboard on the carbs? And without that artificial banana taste? Also, would this recipe work as muffins? Thanks, Kelly
I've been hesitant about keto baking; seemed like a lot of work and I would just rather skip it all. However, I decided to make these for the first time for my Easter dinner. I was a little nervous since I had read that sometimes the batch will fail without really knowing why or I was afraid that maybe I over mixed or under cooked. But thankfully, it all worked out splendidly!

When I was a young boy I instinctively ate tons of bread – I would put everything between two slices of bread and my sister always criticized my eating habits – but I was known as the fastest kid on the street and it does give you “at-the-ready” instant energy. Dr Robt. Haas “Eat to Win” book stresses carbs over proteins and fats and look at the wins of Martina Navratilova . Happy New Year, Norm
The best part about this bread is that it makes it so much easier to eat a low carb diet. Yes, there are some savage beasts (joking) that don’t miss bread at all and are happy to just eat bacon seven times a day, but if you’re anything like me, bread was a staple of your diet growing up and you still have a look of yearning in your eyes when they drop that bread basket in the middle of the table at family dinner. I feel your pain. This low carb bread recipe is your shoulder to cry on.
Theresa, Thanks so much for your comment! We aren’t sure what you mean though; our recipe above calls for 2 cups (224g) of almond flour, which is the same measurement you mentioned from the brand you use (112g per 1 cup X 2 cups = 224g). It may be helpful to reach out to a particular almond flour manufacturer if you have a product-specific question. We hope this helps and happy keto baking!
Stir frys are incredibly easy meals to prepare, require very few net carbs and typically only require one skillet. Plus, frozen vegetables (and frozen seafood, for that matter) work great in stir fry recipes. Purchase a bag of frozen mixed veggies and keep on hand — you’ll be able to prepare a delicious dinner, even when you forgot to grocery shop.
I can’t find an 8×4 pan in the local stores, so while I wait for one to be shipped I went ahead and made these into hamburger bun shape. I don’t have a kitchen scale so I just measured everything super precise and got great results. I only have NOW brand psyllium husk powder so yes, they are an odd shade of purple but they taste great so I don’t care. What I really wanted was a vessel for butter and it made for a great snack before bed- which I know I’m not supposed to have but I was too curious to wait until morning! 🙂 Thanks for the update on this recipe, it made all the difference!
Weigh your ingredients. This will forever be a staple recommendation for any sort of gluten free baking here at gnom-gnom. As aside from leading to less dirty dishes, it will ensure consistent results time and time again. Remember that gluten free (and particularly keto) baking is notoriously finicky, and measuring by cups is anything but accurate. And if you don’t own a baking scale, measure with cups by dropping the ingredients onto them rather than scooping them out (which often leads to overpacking).
There are three instances where there’s research to back up a ketogenic diet, including to help control type 2 diabetes, as part of epilepsy treatment, or for weight loss, says Mattinson. “In terms of diabetes, there is some promising research showing that the ketogenic diet may improve glycemic control. It may cause a reduction in A1C — a key test for diabetes that measures a person’s average blood sugar control over two to three months — something that may help you reduce medication use,” she says.

Did you hear the news? I have a new cookbook out called Keto Instant Pot Recipes book! But this is not just any Instant Pot cookbook. This keto cookbook has a ton recipes with BOTH Instant Pot directions AND slow cooker directions! I also started an Instagram account on my favorite Keto Instant Pot Recipes and giveaways called @KetoInstantPotRecipes! 
Well 18 is pretty close to 20, and I’m so mad at myself for letting it happen! I kept thinking I could lose it all fast by getting back on the wagon, but now it will probably take me months. So irritating! Congrats on three pounds and getting a head start on us! Keep us posted in the weekly Saturday thread on how you’re doing OK? And yes, DRINK MORE WATER! ha ha!
Today is day one! Breakfast was delicious. So happy I found your blog and thank you for the recipes and especially the shopping list! You’ve left me with no excuses and actually a little bit excited to begin this 21 day adventure. This is huge. I’ve done Paleo before, felt good, but it didn’t last long term. My body needs to be low carb, no sugar, so again, thank you.
My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.
I am used to everyone in the rest of Canada sneering at us in BC. (Now that extends to some in the US, too, I guess. More often most in the US don't even know we exist; we often have to say "just above Seattle.") It all started decades ago when British Columbia decided to put "Beautiful BC" on its licence plates and in all its marketing. Albertans got especially incensed, not helped now by the fact we are in a heated dispute between the two provinces about pipelines vs environment. BC tends to attract people who put a high value on the environment, gardening, nature, having backyard chickens. All BC cities have bylaws that allow chickens - there are lots of coops in my urban neighborhood. This is my normal.
Well… it turned out beautifully. It rose evenly, it was light, fluffy and baked through. It tasted very good, both plain and toasted with butter. I truthfully do not know if I would add the butter the next time I make a loaf because I was so pleased with this version. I will likely reduce the erythritol to 1 tablespoon or less for a more subtle sweetness in the future. This recipe has so many flavour possibilities and I look forward to trying out all of my ideas using this excellent base. It is also good to know that it can be made without the additional fat component. Don’t get me wrong, I am keto and a committed high fat enthusiast but slathering some fat on top of the bread… butter, pâté, nut butter… will work just fine for me.

Well, everyone, I am sensitive to psyllium so I experimented and it kind of worked! I made a half recipe using chia seed I ground in my Vitamix into 5 buns. They didn’t really rise but the flavor was quite good. Might add garlic and onion powder next time. I was able to slice the skinny bun and have a burger on it. Yum! Hadn’t had a burger on a bun for ages! Worth a try! I did weigh everything and was very precise so inaccurate quantities would not be an issue. Maria, any ideas on how to make this mixture rise some? I’m sure I’m not the only one with psyllium issues. Can’t have flax much either and I think if I have the chia too often that will give me tummy trouble also. One more question Maria. Is there a reason for no salt in the egg white protein bread? I don’t really like the flavor or texture but thought salt and seasonings would help. Thank you, Maria! You have made my meals so much more enjoyable! So grateful!
These nutty tasting Sandwich Thins will help keep you, well, thin! The protein and fiber in this healthiest bread supply more than a third of these calories, which will keep you satisfied—not stuffed. If you’re worried this low-cal lunchtime alternative won’t be enough to keep you full through the afternoon, add plenty of water-filled veggies and some of the high-fiber foods for weight loss to your sandwich.
Asked if bread should be considered a “junk” food, Aune says the opposite is true. “Whole-grain breads are healthy, and a high intake of whole grains is associated with a large range of health benefits,” he says, citing links to lower rates of heart disease, cancer, and mortality. In fact, his research has found that eating the equivalent of 7.5 slices of whole-grain bread per day is linked with “optimal” health outcomes.
In low carb and keto baking, we’re concerned with two things: 1) keeping carbs low, and 2) still achieving a baked good that has great flavor and texture (because if we can’t gag it down there’s just no point, right? Lol). Low carb bread recipes are usually gluten free and grain free (although we’ve seen a couple that use oat fiber), but then the challenge is to get creative to get the right combination of ingredients to yield something that rises properly and tastes good.

As always, I’m late to the party. Thank you so much for this fantastic resource! I did this 6 years ago, lost 60 lbs. and maintained it for five years. But over the past year or so, my weight has gone up and down the same 18 lbs. To add insult to injury, I’m now borderline pre-diabetic (higher A1C than is healthy), my anxiety attacks have returned and so I’m on medication for that. It’s time to go back to what I know makes me feel better and get off the sugar and garbage once and for all.
Hey Maya!! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried off your website and again I love it!! Turned out really well. I can have sandwiches again or a quick piece Of toast when I’m in a hurry to get out the door. I was skeptical about the xanthan gum since I tried a recipe using psyllium husk powder. I did not like it. I can’t taste the xanthan gum so I have no problem using it going forward. Thanks again for the recipe!!!

Bread deserves an important place in the diet because it is inexpensive, low in fat and provides a range of nutrients. Bread is one of the oldest processed foods - and various types include different grains, including wheat, spelt, rye, oats and barley, as well as seeds such as sesame, sunflower and linseeds.Bread products also include unleavened flat bread such as pita and Lebanese breads, either with or without added yeast, as well as roti, chapatti, and pumpernickel bread.Sourdough (the traditional, slow-fermenting, artisan-produced) bread is a chewy, sour-tasting bread produced using a starter culture containing natural bacteria and yeasts (rather than commercial baker’s yeast). Many sourdough loaves are based on rye flour, but others feature white or wholegrain flours.Many breads have added ingredients, such as extra grains, soy, seeds, olives, nuts and fruit as well as yeast and salt (needed for the action of the yeast). More highly processed breads may contain added fats and associated emulsifiers and a range of permitted chemicals to keep the bread soft and delay staling.Nutritional composition of breadBread is a valuable source of protein, carbohydrate, dietary fibre, many B group vitamins and some minerals.Much of the bread eaten in Australia is made from wheat.The wheat grain consists of 3 main componentsbranthe outer layer of the seed which contains much of the fibregermthe small part of the seed from which a new plant would grow. This contains vitamins (including vitamin E) and minerals.endosperm (the kernel)the largest portion of the seed - mainly starch and protein, this provides the nutrition for the growing seedThe nutritional value of bread depends largely on how the grain is treated during the milling process to make the flour. During milling, the bran and germ can be removed, leaving the starchy endosperm which is ground to make white flour. In Australia, white flour used for bread is not bleached.Choosing breadWhite breadis made from white flour ground from the endosperm only.Wholemeal breadis made from flour in which the entire grain is ground.Wholegrain breadhas a small amount of unground grain left in the flour. However, in Australia, the label “wholegrain” can be used to describe foods which have been completely milled or ground, as long as the entire grain is used and the grain constituents are still there in their original proportions. See the effect this has on the glycaemic index (GI ) of the bread, below.Multi-grain breadis usually made with white flour with a mixture of whole grains added, usually wheat and rye – it’s basically white bread with added grains.Bread made with wholegrain flour generally has more fibre, vitamins and minerals, especially iron, than white bread, however, white flour breads in Australia still contain a significant nutrient content.Glycaemic Index of breadThe GI ranks foods according to the extent to which they cause blood glucose levels to rise. The concept is particularly important for people with diabetes and especially relevant for foods that form the basis of a meal.White flour has a high glycaemic index (GI) which makes most white breads less suitable for those with diabetes and also for those who lead sedentary lives. Physical activity increase the chances of using the glucose that results from consuming bread as fuel. The dough conditioners (often called rapid dough risers) added to commercial sliced loaves decrease the fermentation time and change the nature of the starch granules in bread, increasing its GI.Traditional slow-fermented sourdough breads tend to have a low GI.Most wholemeal bread is made from white flour recombined with wheatgerm and bran in approximately the same proportions as the original wheat. These loaves contain the nutrients of the original wheat, including the overall level of dietary fibre, and can legally be labelled as wholemeal, but the disruption of the original grain makes the carbohydrate easier to breakdown in the intestine and raises the GI.Wholegrain breads that contain whole grains are low in GI, because the seeds and grainy ‘bits’ slow down the digestive process.Multi-grain breads, despite being made with white flour, can have quite low GI because of the added grains.Supplementation of breadWheat flour used in bread-making in Australia must be supplemented with folic acid (except flour labelled “organic”) and thiamin, and the salt used must be iodised salt (again, this is optional in ‘organic’ loaves).Salt in breadBecause it is widely consumed, bread is a major source of salt in the Australian diet. This is a concern as a high-salt diet is known to be linked to high blood pressure and increased risk of heart disease. For this reason, leading bread manufacturers have voluntarily agreed to reduce sodium in their bread products to 400 mg per 100 g or less by the end of 2013. Note, however, that many foods, including fast foods, soups and sauces contain much higher concentrations of added salt.Tips for buying breadLook for the first ingredients in the list – as the ingredients are listed in order of quantity used. Depending on what type of bread you want, look at the flour used and additives. Whole grains and seeds in the bread add extra nutritional value and reduce the GI.“Wheat flour“ essentially means white flour, whereas “wholemeal” flour is flour where the whole grain is used, usually by recombining white flour with bran and wheatgerm. Wholegrain flour may be made by grinding the whole wheat grain rather than recombining the elements of the wheat grain. Also, look for the percentage of the flour, as further down the list you may find other flours in lesser amounts if the bread is made with mixed flours.Look for salt content – a slice of some breads can contain as much as 580 mg sodium. The Heart Foundation recommends choosing breads that have 400 mg sodium or less per 100 g.High fibre content is a nutritional advantage and wholegrain breads usually have at least 6 g or more per 100 g.All you really need to make bread is flour, yeast, water and salt, however, supermarket breads have various additives and preservatives added to extend shelf life and to improve the look, texture and taste of bread.The list of ingredients can include sugar, added vitamins and minerals, dough improvers (make the dough rise more rapidly), emulsifiers (keep the fat evenly distributed in the bread) and various preservatives or mould inhibitors (usually used in summer or humid areas of Australia). In some countries, brown bread is coloured but this is no longer the case in Australia.If you are buying bread from a bakery and it's unlabelled, you can ask the baker what has been added to the loaf. Some national bread chains list the nutritional composition of their breads on their websites.With sourdough, there is no regulation in Australia, so make sure you ask the baker if it’s authentic slow-fermented sourdough. Traditional sourdough contains just flour, salt and water and is made from a starter piece of dough containing natural or some added yeast. Many supermarket sourdoughs are more like regular white breads made using commercial baker’s yeast and flavoured with vinegar to give them a slightly sour taste. A proper sourdough is chewy, unlike the versions which just melt in your mouth and are high GI.Health benefits of breadConsuming wholegrain and high cereal fibre daily is associated with several health benefits:reduced risk of heart disease;reduced risk of type 2 diabetes;reduced risk of bowel cancer in adults;preventing weight gain.Bread and glutenGluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley and therefore, in most breads. Oats contain a related protein which can cause reactions in those with gluten intolerance.Despite our current obsession with gluten-free foods, the number of people who have been clinically diagnosed with coeliac disease and who must therefore avoid all gluten is small. Some estimate that it may be as high as 1 person in every 100, although that figure has yet to be confirmed in any large studies in Australia.Nevertheless, some people report that eating bread causes them to feel bloated and have digestive disturbances. If you have trouble after eating wheat-based products, such as bread, cereals, couscous, tabbouli or pasta, talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian about whether you might have coeliac disease or wheat sensitivity.Proper medical diagnosis using appropriate testing for coeliac disease is important before trialling a gluten-free diet. If testing rules out coeliac disease, your doctor or dietitian may suggest you trial a wheat-free diet to see if symptoms subside. But, always consult your doctor or dietitian before making any big change, like this, to your diet, as the symptoms may have another cause and there there may be nutritional considerations you haven’t thought of.

While there are delicious-looking ketogenic recipes and meal plans online, experts like Weaver warn that you’ll want to avoid relying too much on artificial sweeteners and unhealthy foods for your keto diet menu. Make sure your grocery list includes healthy fats like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. This is what really happens to your body on the keto diet.
Maria, can you clarify the recipe as far as fluid ounces versus weighted ounces? For example, for the boiling water, 1.5 cups of water is 12 fluid ounces, but 1.5 cups of water does not weigh 12 weighted ounces. As I watch your video, you weigh the boiling water in a measuring cup, but once again I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be 12 fluid or weighted ounces. And is that true for the vinegar and egg whites as well… fluid ounces versus weighted ounces?
This was my first time baking anything EVER and it turned out perfectly! I do find that the bread does taste a tad “eggy” but it’s soft and a perfect replacement for sandwich bread. I can finally have grilled cheese sandwiches again!! Next time around, I’ll double the recipe because the bread was smaller than expected. Thanks for this amazing recipe!
I made dressing/stuffing out of this bread! I cut the bread into slices, then cut the slices into cubes. I put them on a metal pan and into my toaster oven on low temperature and let them crisp up. It takes a good while, but they DO get crisp! Then I have my croutons for the dressing. The dressing I made was delicious. I think the next time I make the bread to use for croutons I’m going to add onion powder and sage to the mixture before baking so the croutons will be seasoned some before I begin making the dressing! Love this bread! It is the most like wheat flour bread that I have tried! Thanks Maya!

Updated 10/23/2015: I left this be for over a year....I had reached the point I could start running and have now completed lots of 10K's and some longer....started trail running (love that!)....and hit a plateau....I remembered this diet - got the book back out....read more and AGAIN was so surprised that this works! lol. Even after it works for you....all you ever hear is that carbs are bad....and bread is evil....so you forget this concept! I broke thru my plateau and now continue to lose and yes, I am running more than 20 miles a week now...but I also 'fuel' myself with bread a lot - and apples and bannanas - and I find I have SO much more energy on the carbs than on the heavy salad and chicken routine. Dropped a quick 5-10 in a few weeks, even with a lot of treats to myself in the eating dept. lol.

Attempt #4 or 5, I lost count 🙂 I measured everything by weight (ounces and grams as you listed) not by cups or tsps, etc. Put in oven at 375 since I don’t have convection and the previous attempts didn’t rise. This one rose beautifully! Nice beautiful color! Cooked 80 minutes. Let cool completely in my 8×4 metal loaf pan. Several hours later, I decided to take out of pan and cut a slice. It caved a little in on the sides, it looks similar to your 12 oz water picture, but it is wet. I’m not sure you’d call it gummy but definitely too much moisture again. And, I thought I finally had one! Back to the testing…I’ve gone thru 1/2 my Honeyville 5 lb bag and haven’t had one successful loaf yet 🙁
I’m a little late to comment but I had to say how amazing this bread tastes. It has a chewy crust and light a fluffy inside. I’ve been keto for over two years and trust me I’ve tried every bread recipe out there. My husband and two kids, 10 and 7 years old, are also full keto and it’s unanimous that this was their favorite. I made this recipe adding 1/2 more of all the ingredients and ended up with a nice sized loaf. Thank you. Will definitely keep trying all your recipes. You certainly hit this one out of the park.

We’ve included a printable shopping list and meal plan for your convenience! Again, use these tools as a reference and not as the be all end all. If you see something else on sale that you enjoy eating, go for that! This can be used as a framework for how to eat on keto. This isn’t the most ideal meal plan for optimal health, but it’s a pretty good one for cheap. I would recommend getting some coconut oil in this plan if possible, but we couldn’t fit it into our all-inclusive approach. If you buy in bulk on amazon coconut oil is cheap!


Wondering how many carb foods you can eat and still be “in ketosis”? The traditional ketogenic diet, created for those with epilepsy consisted of getting about 75 percent of calories from sources of fat (such as oils or fattier cuts of meat), 5 percent from carbohydrates and 20 percent from protein. For most people a less strict version (what I call a “modified keto diet”) can still help promote weight loss in a safe, and often very fast, way.
I have pancreatitis, well controlled, which is the way I want to keep it. The biggest difficulty I have with keto is this: I eat a small portion of steel cut oats in the morning. When I don’t, within two days , I start having bleeding, dark in colour. My endrocrinolagest feels that I need the roughage in the steel cut oats to replete the bowel lining. I have great difficulty loosing weight, always have, even though I eat very clean, no junk food, never eat out, don’t like pop, don’t crave sugar, cook all food fresh. Any comment? Willing to try anything you can suggest.
On a ketogenic diet, your entire body switches its fuel supply to run mostly on fat, burning fat 24-7. When insulin levels become very low, fat burning can increase dramatically. It becomes easier to access your fat stores to burn them off. This is great if you’re trying to lose weight, but there are also other less obvious benefits, such as less hunger and a steady supply of energy. This may help keep you alert and focused.
It’s simple. Bread is not fattening. An average slice contains 70 calories; an average roll is 113 calories. Bread is filling, helping to reduce the craving for higher calorie foods during the meal. A baked potato, for example, (104 calories) with butter (102 calories -level tablespoon) and sour cream (122 calories – 2 oz). It’s easy to see how a roll or  bread, with just a little butter (or, better, none) can replace many calories (and fat) during a meal; in the baked potato example.
Angie, I’m happy to hear you and your hubby enjoyed the taste, but sorry to hear the bread was flat! The egg whites don’t need to be whipped for this recipe, but I’ll try to help you troubleshoot…first I would check to make sure that your baking powder is fresh. Also, did you use the full cup of egg whites? Did you make any ingredient substitutions or adjustments? Did you use a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan? Did you cook it at 350F and is your oven properly calibrated? Did you bake it for the amount of time the recipe calls for? I hope this helps!
If you do not have an Instant Pot yet, I have to tell you, I am not a gadget girl and I adore my slow cooker. I like the idea of filling my slow cooker the night before, place the shell in the fridge overnight and turning it on in the morning and allow the meal to cook while I am working or exploring nature all day. However, the Instant Pot was easy to fall in love with. It is also a slow cooker! And on days when I forget to plan ahead, I can make a delicious meal in minutes. Click HERE to find the Instant Pot I love. 
Avocado’s are a huge staple food for most keto dieters and we’re no different. You might be able to find a good deal on premade guacamole though. If that’s the case, feel free to go for that and sub out the avocado. If you don’t like broccoli or cauliflower you can try mushrooms or zucchini. If you don’t like any of those you should probably learn to like vegetables!!! But you could also just double down on the salad.

In part, keto diet weight loss is a real thing because high-fat, low-carb diets can both help diminish hunger and boost weight loss through their hormonal effects. As described above, when we eat very little foods that supply us with carbohydrates, we release less insulin. With lower insulin levels, the body doesn’t store extra energy in the form of fat for later use, and instead is able to reach into existing fat stores for energy.
This is a wealth of information. My husband and I are starting the keto diet tomorrow and I knew nothing about it. When I sat down to look up information about it, I found this. Thank you! This is everything I need to know in one place. We are not as healthy as we’d like to be and I am optimistic this will help us obtain our goals, along with an exercise plan.

We like Alvarado St. Bakery Essential Flaxseed Bread, made from sprouted organic whole flax seeds and wheat berries. It’s incredibly low in calories (one of the few where you’ll see two slices for a single serving), low in sodium and carbs. Pick up a loaf through their online store, or in supermarkets and natural food stores throughout the country. 
Thanks for this post, I am always on the look out for new blogs I haven’t discovered yet and you have provided a couple. I am also on the look out for new dinner recipes ( this is not to say I don’t appreciate your dessert recipes cause boy do I ) but my husband cannot eat red meat of any kind so this makes it even harder to make a low carb dinner for us. I have gotten used to subbing ground turkey for beef and have discovered that using broth from dried porcinis gives it a very beefy flavor. Now I have a few more recipes to try, Thanks for that.

Lazy keto diet: Last but not least, the Lazy keto diet often gets confused with dirty keto … but they’re different, as the “lazy” refers to simply not carefully tracking the fat and protein macros (or calories, for that matter). Meanwhile, the one aspect that remains strict? Not eating over 20 net carb grams per day. Some people find this version less intimidating to start with or end with … but I will caution that your results will be less impressive.

I see your point – but at the same time some people are squeamish about the normal terms and when I first heard shark week I laughed out loud so I thought it might be fun to inject some humor into a sometimes totally humorless subject, especially for people who have really painful and debilitating cycles every month. Glad you’re enjoying the site though and thanks for letting me know! :)


We’ve been on the Keto journey since the end of February last year and this is my favourite bread recipe so far, I just made a loaf and it turned out great. I don’t have a food processor so I did use my blender and for ingredients I only used the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, butter, salt, 8 egg whites (all I had left in the fridge) and the only optional ingredient I added was stevia. The texture was still really nice without the extra ingredients which is a nice option and this tasted like a regular loaf of bread, I’ll definitely be making this again!!
I still have trouble finding it palatable with savory sandwitches, though. I wanted to try the receipe with gluten free oat flour or using other more neutral flours or starches that don’t contain that much PUFA’s and are more heat stable (vs. almond), since I do OK with carbs on training days. The amount of flour will still be quit low in this receipe.
Your bread recipe is the first recipe which turns out like bread! I was so excited. I loved the texture and the smell. Even though i wasn’t using a mixer, it’s still very delicious. Even more delicious when i toast it whenever i wanna have a slice. Can’t wait to try the rest of your recipes. Thanks Katrin. p/s: i didn’t have xanthan gum, so i replaced with arabica gum.

My first attempt at cloud bread was a major success. My only alteration to the recipe was adding 1/8 tsp more of cream of tartar to the egg whites. I can't believe how good this "bread" is. It was great out of the oven, and I tried a slice again today with mayo and turkey and it is still awesome out of the fridge. I find storing in the fridge layered with parchment in between each slice is key. Enjoy!

Hi Kelly, All packaged foods will have a nutrition label that list the macros per serving, including fat, protein and cabrohydrates. Net carbs, which is what most people look at for low carb and keto, are total carbs (the amount on the label) minus fiber and sugar alcohols, as explained in the article above. I have a low carb food list here that gives you a full list of all the foods you can eat, and the net carbs in each. You can also sign up above to be notified about the meal plans, which are a great way to get started.
I am in my 65th year and have been vegetarian/vegan for much of my life and I am frequently told that I look 20 years younger. I am slim and energetic and my husband and I love to dance. I love to eat good breads and potatoes. One of the big problems is that many people consume far too much sugar, salt and fats and oils. Animal fats in particular are extremely bad for us and place a huge load on our livers which in turn effects our skin, hair. eyes,— in fact everything, and make it difficult to lose weight. However it is fine to have ‘ a little’ of these.

Hi Cyn, The numbers are general guidelines but will vary depending on many factors, such as activity level, insulin resistance, weight and more. There is no single magic number, just conventional recommendations that are a good starting point. I will have a macro calculator coming soon that will help determine what is best for each person, but even then it’s an approximation. The only way to know for sure is to test. If keto is your goal, it’s usually best to start lower and then see if you can stay in ketosis when increasing.

The first month or two on keto you may experience some strange periods (aka. Shark Week.) Don’t be alarmed. When you lose weight and your body detoxes from sugar and excess carbs, all kinds of hormonal changes (for the better) occur. Initially though, you may experience heavier periods than normal, more extreme PMS symptoms, etc. This is normal, and while it’s inconvenient it shouldn’t last more than a few months at the most.If your weight loss is rapid on keto (let’s hope), you may also lose more hair than normal for a month or two. It can be disconcerting, but it’s not permanent and will stop when your hormones regulate.
