To keep your total carb intake low (so you can stay in that fat-burning state known as ketosis), the best keto bread recipes forgo traditional flour for high-fiber and high-fat ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, eggs, and healthy fats like grass-fed butter or avocado oil. This not only helps you hit your keto macros, but it ups your intake of some awesome nutrients as well.
Almond flour is packed with vitamin E and magnesium, coconut flour and psyllium husk (which is an amazing binder) are sky-high in fiber to keep blood sugar balanced and boost the health of your microbiome, and glorious eggs are a potent source of choline, vitamin K2, and biotin, among other nutrients.
Together, these ingredients somehow manage to achieve almost-authentic bread flavor. Of course, you’re not going to achieve that perfect crumb and bouncy texture of breads made with traditional flour (gluten is responsible for that classic elasticity), but the final product is certainly good enough for your next round of avocado toast.
Now, enough with the chit chat. Let’s make some keto bread!
