The thing I missed most after leaving carbs is bread. I would have eggs on toast in the morning and a peanut butter sandwich as a snack every day. Cutting out bread when I got on the keto diet was a very hard thing for me to do.
If you’re like me and you love your bread, rejoice! I bring you a recipe for low-carb bread, perfect for sandwiches. The void in my life is filled – with bread. Who said you have to give up good food to get into keto?
Serving size: 20 slices
Prep & Cooking time: 45-60 minutes
- 8 large eggs
- 1 ½ cup almond flour – I highly recommend Urban Platter’s Almond Flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 4 tbsp butter
- Sea salt if you have it, regular salt will do just fine
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
|Of which saturated||46.8||grams|
|Of which sugars||10.8||grams|
1 slice has: 84.2 kcals, 8.6g fats, 3.34g carbs, 4.22g protein.
In comparison, 1 slice (ONE SLICE!) of regular bread has 15 g of carbs!
- Preheat the oven at 350F.
- Break the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites.
- Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat it with a mixer. Keep beating it until it is creamy and white. If you pull out the mixer and it leaves soft “horns” in the whites, then you’re done. Don’t beat it any longer.
- Mix almond flour, baking powder, butter, garlic powder and egg yolk together. Keep mixing until it becomes thick dough.
- Mix in half of the whites into the dough and keep mixing until it all combines together smoothly.
- Add the rest of the whites and mix until it is smooth and sticky.
- Put it in a bread pan (or a baking tray) and bake it in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Check the bread often if it is cooked by pricking it with a toothpick.
- Slice into 20 slices and enjoy.
Protip: If you don’t have an oven, don’t worry. You can place a tawa on the gas with a non stick pan on top. Cover the pan with a lid wrapped in cloth and you have your own home made oven!
You can garnish with basil, thyme and grated cheese for an Italian style bread. I use this blend of Italian spices.
Everyone loves bread. Just because you’re on keto doesn’t mean you have to avoid it. Make a loaf of delicious keto bread once a week and the lifestyle change to a keto diet will be much easier.
