Keto Friendly Food

Super Easy Low Carb Bread Recipe with 10 Min Prep Time

Not eating bread regularly is difficult for most people although the core principle of a Keto diet is cutting down the food high in carbohydrates.  The Internet told us that lots of many options for low carb bread are available. Because we wanted to eat fresh bread, we baked a “Keto friendly bread” on our own and then moved on to trying packaged bread for comparison.

Super Easy Recipes

We reviewed several YouTube channels and Google searched easy low carb bread recipes. Soon we found this simple recipe using coconut flour. You’ll be amazed by how yummy this low carb bread is from such a simple recipe!

Nutrition fact:

One loaf of bread includes 40g of carbohydrates and 24g of fiber which translates into only 16g of net carb. If you slice a load into 6 pieces, each slice will only have less than 3g of net carb. Hooray!

Equipment you need:
  • A Bowl to Mix Ingredients in
  • A Hand Mixer – if you don’t have one, manual blending will do it but it takes longer
  • A Silicon Loaf Pan or Baking Tin – if you use baking tin, need a piece of baking paper. A silicon loaf pan is pretty cheat at Amazon.
  • A Spatula or a large spoon
Ingredients for one load of bread:
  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour (approx. 56g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Salted Butter (approx. 115g)
  • 5 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of Xanthan Gumhttps (only if you want to make it chewier)
Easy 5 Steps:

1. Mix all ingredients listed above altogether. Let the mix sit until consistency to be thick.

2. In a silicon loaf pan, spray olive oil or if you are using a baking tin, lay baking paper so that the ingredients won’t stick

3. Using a spatula (or the back of a large spoon), pour the mixture to the pan and smooth the top part

4. Place the pan in the oven for at 190F (355C) for 45 minutes

5. Remove the pan from the oven, cut the bread out and serve while it’s moist and soft!

Ways to Serve:

My preference is to eat it while still hot with no spread and enjoy the ingredients, but you can use it for sandwiches to a French toast. My husband loves eating it with peanut butter just like a kid.

Keep It Fresh!

I love homemade food because the recipe doesn‘t use preservatives. But it means the bread won’t last 3 weeks like bagged bread from the grocery store. I recommend eating all part within 2 to 3 days. After 3 days, you’ll see signs of becoming stale. To prolong its freshness, please keep the bread in an air-tight container (air-tight tin, bread bag, bread box, paper bag folded). Don’t wrap it in plastic as it will mold faster from internal moisture.


Other Options

For those of you who prefer buying bread from a store or online, here are two of popular products we tried and liked:

  1. ThinSlim Foods Love-the-Taste ZERO CARB Bread HoneyZero carb bread

Nutrition fact: Each slice, 1 oz., has 45 calories, 7g of protein and 0 net carb (total carb minus fibers). How is this possible? Unfortunately, the Company website does not reveal the secret.

Price: It’s $7.99 per 14oz bag, so it’s not cheapest but not too expensive for a no net card bread which is a miracle. Shipping is free for an over $100.

Pros: Tastes just like bread, no insulin spike as it doesn’t contain sugar (0 net carbs),

Cons: When it’s toasted, it gets kinda dry and lackluster. I recommend using with spread or for a sandwich. Eating it as grilled cheese sandwiches is the best!

Overall Score: 75. It’s guilt-free, but it doesn’t taste the same. Anyone who tries it blindly can tell it’s somewhat different from regular bread. In addition, a good number of Amazon reviewer noted that their packages arrived with mold….… disappointing!

2. Paleo Thin Bread Almond from Julian Bakery Low carb bread

Nutrition fact: Each slice, 43g, has 60 calories, 7g of protein and a 1g net carb (total carb minus fibers). The spec is good. Ingredients includes almond flour and organic coconut flour.

Price: Not sure why but it‘s only available as a pack of 3 and cost $29,99.

Pros: Fresh and so soft. If you freeze it as soon as it arrives, it will last up to 6 months. Also, 1g net carb is acceptable under keto protocol.

Cons: If you don’t refrigerate the pieces you are not freezing for later use, it will rot. Must refrigerate it all the time.

Overall Score: 50 because it’s hard to keep it fresh. Flavor is good enough but since it’s on a softer side, I had to toast it to hold spread better. I don’t recommend using it as a sandwich bread.

    Since I started indulging in a keto lifestyle, I had to drop bread because of its high carb content. I’m really happy to see a bread recipe that’s keto friendly. I’ve never really given this a thought. Making bread with coconut flour would really suit my needs, as my local stores don’t sell low carb breads. I bet it would taste even better!

    Thanks for the information, loved it!

    This is a really great post about another way of healthy living.  I could have even thought making low carb bread might cost a fortune, but never really know that it is actually easy to eat healthily. There is actually a huge advantage in making some food like this at home. It not even advisable to eat such food like this from the grocery’s store because might be stale and its nutrient might have gone. It is a really good idea to make such food from the house.
