Keto Bread

My Keto Bread

I’m a firm believer that Germans bake the best bread on the planet, and boy… do I love bread! Unfortunately, the tastiest food is almost always full of carbs. As a general food lover who is 51 (at the time of this article) and tends to be on the stronger side of physical appearance – to put it carefully – I am committed to avoiding carbs like the devil avoids holy water, eating healthy and stay relatively lean.

This Keto Bread recipe is perfect for satisfying my bread cravings while keeping my diet on track. It’s extremely low in carbs, high in healthy fats and protein, and really delicious. Give it a try and enjoy a guilt-free proper German-style bread!

Ingredients

  • 250 g (2 cups) almond flour
  • 50 g (1/2 cup) flaxseed meal
  • 6 g (0.2 oz) ground psyllium husk (1 tbsp)
  • 12 g (0.4 oz) baking powder (1 tbsp)
  • 5 g (0.18 oz) salt (1 tsp)
  • 15 g (0.5 oz) apple cider vinegar (1 tbsp)
  • 5 eggs
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup or 2 fl oz) olive oil or melted butter
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup or 4 fl oz) hot water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F) and prepare a loaf pan by greasing it or lining it with parchment paper.

  2. Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl, thoroughly mix the almond flour, flaxseed meal, ground psyllium husk, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Add wet ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil (or melted butter). Not the hot water!

  4. Make the dough: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Gradually add the hot water while stirring until the dough is thick and evenly mixed.

  5. Bake: Pour the dough into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes, until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  6. Let cool: Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then take it out of the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack.

What Are Net Carbs?

Net carbs are the carbohydrates that your body can digest and convert into glucose, which can affect your blood sugar levels. They are calculated by subtracting the fiber content from the total carbohydrates. Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that your body cannot digest, so it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels.

Net carbs are especially important for those following a low-carb or ketogenic diet because they focus on the carbs that impact blood sugar.

This bread is extremely low in net carbs.
