Not only does the pumpkin give this bread a beautiful orange hue, but it provides you with a great source of Vitamin A and many other eye, skin, and lung protecting carotenoids as well. The coconut milk used in this keto recipe will give you some energy-boosting saturated fats called medium chain triglycerides, and the almond flour will help you meet your fiber, protein, and mineral needs for the day.

I was so excited about making this bread. I recently cut all grains out of my life and I’m also in the process of going gluten free because i have a lot of digestive issues. I followed the recipe precisely. Checked the temp before taking it out of oven. It looked amazing nice and golden brown. I cut into it and i couldn’t wait for that first bite. I was so disappointed it has an odd flavor I just couldnt stomach and it was very salty to me. I tried a few tiny bites with different condiments and couldn’t eat it. After reading some comments, I see it is supposed to be unsalted butter. I used salted, but why did it seem to have a bitter sour taste to it?

Can I eat sugar during intermittent fasting


I went to buy Xanthan gum at a store in my little town and it was like $17! I wasn’t paying that much, so I made it without but I will be ordering some online. I followed your directions exactly (minus Xanthan) and used Swerve for the sweetener. I couldn’t wait for it to cool so I had a piece right after it came out of the oven, it was delicious! I find it a tad sweet for bread, but that’s ok I’ll just cut back on the sweetener if I want to eat it for a sandwich..all sweeteners are a little different. It had a beautiful crust on it and was a tiny bit crumbly, almost reminds me more of muffin texture, I’m thinking maybe the Xanthan will give it more of a chewy bread texture?

I’m sure some of you grew up eating Swedish meatballs, but many of us associate this recipe with shopping at Ikea and that’s perfectly fine too. Flavor packed keto Swedish meatballs are served in creamy beef gravy. We kept the carbs low by skipping the breadcrumbs and using xanthan gum as a thickener. For even more flavor you could try doing this recipe with a 50/50 mixture of ground beef and ground pork. This recipe could also be great for meal prep if you do a little planning ahead. ...

Is coconut flour OK for diabetics


Stir fries and sautees are so quick to make that they are the best meals when you are short of time for cooking. This one only takes five minutes and is filling and delicious. This is a combination of ground beef and vegetables flavored with garlic and oregano, but you could use whatever ground meat you have; turkey works really well here. This is a low carb meal suitable for the keto diet.
When you buy chicken, it’s often a better deal to buy a whole chicken and divide it into pieces yourself. Chicken breast is usually the most expensive part and also the leanest. We suggest leaving it in the store and opt for thighs, with or without the bone in, instead. They often come cheaper, have more natural fat and therefore more flavor. If you can get pieces with the skin on, it’s even better! You’ll find more tips on how to cook chicken below.
To Make Sure You Get the Best Rise: Make sure your baking powder and yeast are fresh. Let your egg whites come to room temperature before using. Cook for the recommended amount of time (and make sure your oven is properly calibrated). Measure all ingredients carefully (we recommend weighing the dry ingredients). Try to avoid the temptation to slice it while it's hot because this can cause the loaf to fall. 

Hi Brenda, There are various reasons but the most common one is that coconut flour is extremely absorbent and needs a lot of eggs to offset how much moisture it absorbs. If you used a liquid like milk or water, it would fall apart. That being said, this recipe is not dry or dense. Did you try making it? Whipping the egg whites creates the exact opposite effect and the bread turns out light and fluffy. Hope you’ll give it a try!

Can I eat rice noodles on Candida Diet


Cooking meat like chicken in cooking foil is the best way to ensure the meat stays juicy and tender and allows the chicken to absorb the flavor of the garlic. The resulting chicken breast can be eaten hot or cold, served with a salad or simply with a salsa, and it also makes an excellent dish for your lunchbox for work. Fresh herbs could also be added to the garlic and ghee to boost the flavor even more!

How many carbs should I eat a day to lose weight


Echoing what so many here said already: tried so many keto bread recipes and finally found the BEST!!! I’m excited to have a yeasty bread again. And I’m thinking of making this my basic recipe and then adding things like blueberries or Lily’s chocolate chips or cinnamon or Italian seasoning. etc. Also a little bit of monk fruit sweetener or erythritol. Any harm in those additions?

What is keto bread made of


Like a warm hug for those chilly evenings. Or if you’re looking for something simple yet satiating to bring to work, these options are perfect. Easy to reheat, so you can focus on enjoying a warm meal whenever you need it. We have a lot of Indian curries and South American delicacies, packed with tons of flavor and nutrition. You can also use your slow cooker to make the preparation process even smoother.

Which cheese is best for keto diet


On the top of the benefits of protein, the flaxseeds in this keto bread recipe have many health benefits as well. For example, they contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid that has been proven to possess heart health benefits and decrease the risk of stroke. Flaxseeds are also one of the most abundant sources of plant compounds called lignans. Lignans have been found to reduce the risk of cancers like breast cancer and prostate cancer.

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!

What can I use in meatloaf instead of breadcrumbs


I just made this bread today and MAN, IS IT GOOD!!!! I realized I used salted butter and pink sea salt and maybe that gave it an added boost too. It was super hard for me to try and fold in the almond flour mixture to the egg whites, but now that I watch the video, I see I could have mixed the food processor part more first. I was so scared to collapse my egg whites. I also see your bread was the same size as mine, so I must have done ok. I will say again, WOW it is sooo good! I already ate two pieces with butter, just because. oops! Good thing it was only 1 carb each. =)))) Thank you, thank you!
A Tex-Mex style casserole packed with bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, and jalapeno, then topped with cheddar cheese. Great served with a dollop of sour cream, or even extra jalapeno if you can handle the heat! If you love Mexican flavors, and meatloaf, then this recipe will be one you enjoy too. To make this meal fast we used a food processor, but you could also chop everything by hand if you don’t happen to have one. You want the vegetables to be a chunky, colorful, and flavor-packed ...
I tried this recipe today and I’m blown away. I haven’t started Keto yet but I am soon. I’ve been trying recipes out, and I truly didn’t expect this to come out right the first time because I’ve never whipped egg whites or folded them into anything. I’m a terrible baker. It was so easy! Even my toddler and husband loves this! I didn’t use the sweetener and love the way it tastes!

Is rhubarb good for weight loss


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.

What is L Arginine used for


Hello!! Went grain free about two months ago to reverse a chronic illness. Am feeling great but was jonesing for a piece of bread!! Big time!! And that’s what you gave me! I wish I could share the photos I have of this loaf which baked up beautifully!! It is light and airy and tastes mild and yummy. Interestingly, when I toasted it up, a hint of coconut came out (obviously from the coconut flour). Thank you so much for sharing this… sandwich here I come!!

Cant lose weight with intermittent fasting


Nice and firm. Baked it on the recommended temp, added 6 or 7 minutes. Pressed the middle and it was great. I let it cool. What was nice about it was obviously it’s low carb bread…hurray for that, but it cut well. Got 18 slices easily about 1/2 inch thick without breakage. Most importantly, it wasn’t greasy, or almond tasting overload, just delicious.

Casseroles are a real timesaver. Creamy and delicious. These recipes are simple to make, family-friendly and can feed a crowd. Any night of the week! If you’re feeling adventurous, why not conquer the whole world? Travel to India with our Keto chicken garam masala, explore Italy with a Keto chicken Caprese casserole, and get a taste of Greece with a succulent Low-carb moussaka. If you want to try an unusual Swedish curiosity, check out the Flying Jacob casserole!
Can you put any yeast in the mixture? And if you did, would it help it rise more in addition to tasing more “yeasty”? I have been making (with great results) a browner, wheat colored bread from a recipe called Diedre’s For Real Low Carb Bread. It uses yeast and only has one rise after kneading with my dough hook attachment on my mixer. I would like to try some white bread.
These fajita skewers are so easy to make, since the meat is marinated for 30 minutes. Just enough time to chop the veggies, thread them up and off you go! Whether you are feeding just the family or a bigger group, these can be made quite cheaply and it is so easy to serve. If you are using chicken, it is a good idea to use metal skewers as they ensure the meat is cooked right through.

This is the perfect use for chicken leftovers. Pair them with some fresh leafy greens and a good dip or dressing and your low-carb and keto lunch or dinner is served. There are many traditional salads with a modern keto twist featuring the mighty chicken. Check out the Keto Caesar salad, the Keto chopped hoagie bowl, the delicious Keto Cobb salad with an amazing ranch dressing, and of course our popular Keto chicken BLT salad.
Hi Al, I’m glad you liked the taste and am honored you chose my site for your first ever comment! 🙂 I haven’t tried this recipe in a bread machine. Most likely the biggest issue with your bread being flat is that you didn’t fold the egg whites in – breaking them down would definitely make the bread flat. I haven’t tried adding yolks as most people want their bread less egg-y, not more. I’d have some concerns about the bread being too “wet” by adding them though, even if you like an eggy taste. A better option might be to brush the top with yolks for color.

Can you drink coffee on a 72 hour fast


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.

Hi Howard, You’re right that this bread doesn’t rise much – the volume comes mostly from whipping the egg whites. If the whites fell too much, the bread might not be tall enough. But even if they didn’t, it might still be shorter than some other tall bread loaves. Feel free to multiply the recipe by 1.5 if you prefer a taller loaf. I’m glad you liked the flavor and texture!

These stuffed poblano peppers are all the fun of chile rellenos without all the work of breading and frying them. This dish is packed full of flavors from the shrimp and cheesy pepper stuffings. First, we’ll roast and skin the peppers. Then we’ll stuff them with shrimp, garlicky cauliflower rice, and seasoned cream cheese. Then Monterey jack is melted over the top, and the whole thing is brought together with the fresh flavors of lime and cilantro. Yields 8 servings of Keto Cilantro ...


This was so yummy! Great for sandwiches. I’m a total amateur when it comes to baking and I was so sure I’d messed this up. The instructions seem a little intimidating- I usually avoid all recipes that even involve separating eggs. I don’t have a hand mixer so used my immersion blender in too wide/flat of a bowl for fluffing the eggs, so they didn’t get thoroughly “fluffed.” But despite that, the consistency of the bread was great. It was just shorter than I’d have expected. So happy I tried this! Great instructions and tips.

Hi Aamash, Sometimes egg whites from a carton are more difficult to beat to stiff peaks, though I do use those all the time myself. Usually it’s best to add some cream of tartar when beating especially if you are using the whites from a carton. This will help them come to stiff peaks. Having the egg whites at room temperature also helps, versus cold from the fridge.

Does Ramadan make you lose muscle


I so miss bread fresh from the oven (I’m going to be adding the yeast)! You are absolutely correct about beaten egg whites creating air pockets. My family has always made buttermilk pancakes from scratch and we always separate the eggs, beat the whites to soft peaks and fold them in at the last minute. The pancakes rise beautifully! Have you tried this with your keto pancakes?

Just made this and as a normal bread lover, I am very impressed! But do have a question. Can you over cook this? Mine seems a bit light inside, like a teenie bit mooshy, and can’t see it holding up in a sandwich. The temp was at 200 inside but I had already had it in for like 50 minutes longer than the posted time and I could still hear a little squish but didn’t want to over cook.

Why is the ketogenic diet good for epilepsy


This chili dish packs quite a punch, but you can always reduce the cayenne pepper if you like it a bit milder. It also freezes well so it’s ideal for batch cooking. It is full of authentic Indian spices and will leave you wanting more when you breathe in the aromas from this delicious dish. Fresh ginger works so well with this chili and remember, you can freeze the leftover ginger and simply grate off what you need for each dish.

Is it safe to fast every other day


Hi Melissa, Are you beating the whole eggs? It needs to be egg whites only. Whole eggs will never form peaks. Adding a little cream of tartar helps, as well as making sure you start with a very clean bowl (preferably not plastic if you’re having issues). Having the egg whites at room temperature can be a little easier, too, though I usually don’t need to. Hope this answers your question!

How do you starve without being hungry


I made it tonight and use a mini loaf pan. It came out delicious. I used the http://www.tasteofhome.com/article/how-to-cut-down-recipes/ link to adjust the recipe measurements using the one third column. I used 2 egg whites. The slices will be small but it was delicious with melted butter. Keto bread recipes and I have tried quite a few have not turned out well for me. I do not like to waste expensive ingredients that is why I will usually do a small amount first. This recipe has been the exception. It is good simple and delicious. I will make it again using the recipe as written. Note: I whipped the egg whites for 10 minutes to get the right consistency. I hope this helps and thank You Maya for finally for me making a bread that tastes great and is easy to make.

Is sugar bad for PCOS


I’ve made plenty of Keto breads over the last few months and this one is definitely the best I’ve found so far. There is still a slight egg taste to the bread, but having the taste of the yeast really helps make it so satisfying to eat. The recipe is quick and simple to make. Because of how successful the bread was I’m really excited to try some of the other recipes on this site.

Is coconut allowed in Keto


I’m so glad you love it, Tanya! Yes, $17 sounds like a lot for xanthan gum. I use this one here. Swerve is sweeter than erythritol, so you’d need less of it – I have a conversion chart here. You’re absolutely right about the xanthan gum and texture – it will make the bread more chewy. It will still be more of a “light and fluffy” bread, but definitely less muffin-like with the xanthan gum. I haven’t tried add-ins yet – let me know how it goes if you try!
This smoothie is so delicious that even kids will like it! There can’t be many people who don’t like strawberries and with the addition of the almonds and chia seeds, this is a filling way to start the day. Strawberries are naturally sweet so you won’t need to add any other sweetener and the cinnamon, which studies show is good for controlling blood sugars, makes this smoothie extra tasty.

Because sardines are a good source of protein and B vitamins, they really are brain food! They are quick and easy to prepare and in this dish the olives add a lovely contrast in texture and flavor. Black olives are very healthy and the Kalamata ones are the best, but you can use whatever ones you have. This is a very low carb meal but full of taste and goodness and so keto-friendly!

keto 20 recipes


The main ingredients in this recipe (chicken, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and bacon) are all part of a low-carb, ketogenic diet. We skipped the store-bought Ranch seasoning mix because it usually contains sugar, quite a bit of salt, and preservatives that we try to avoid if possible. Instead we used a keto-friendly mix of dried chives, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, dried dill, salt, and black pepper to season our Crack Chicken.
Hi Jodi, I haven’t tried that, but don’t think it would work well for this recipe. First, yeast needs sugar (for it to consume – it’s not typically in the end result), so you’d need to add that. But also, just with how we are making the bread fluffy with beaten egg whites, I don’t think yeast would work. If you want to try adding yeast to a low carb bread, I would do it with this low carb bread recipe instead.

This recipe is a slant on a traditional Italian dish and makes great use of olives and garlic, two of Italy’s most common ingredients. Although this is a wonderful meal, you might be a little put off by the use of anchovies. Don’t panic! It is quite easy to use chopped bacon instead to add a bit of smokiness. You can also omit the chili flakes if you don’t like the heat.

I made your bread yesterday. You are right–it IS the best tasting keto bread yet! And I’ve made dozens of recipes through the years! I enlarged it–made a recipe and a half, and used a 9×5 glass pan. I confess, I did make a mess of it at one point. I used carton egg whites, and they didn’t do as well as fresh egg whites do. I ended up with a lot of foam on top and liquid on the bottom. I tried adding the dough to it, but had trouble smoothing out the many lumps. Soooo, I used my hand mixer to mix the whole mess. I put it in the pan and decided to just throw it out, thinking it could never turn into a good loaf of bread. But I went ahead and put it in the oven, and it turned out great! The rise was higher than any other almond flour bread I’ve ever made. So it’s obviously a very “forgivable” recipe. Many thanks!!
