Tip!

You can store the bread in the fridge for 2-3 days or slice it and freeze for later use. Reheat on low temperature in the oven or microwave. You can even use the toaster for additional crispiness.

If you are looking for an excellent dish to go with the bread, try our Turkish baked shrimp recipe. Yum!

    It's a shame this recipe doesn't have better instructions, I hope someone reworks it as it is the best tasting kept bread I have made but there are issues with the ingredient instructions. More concerning is that the comments don't seem to be acted upon... hoping against hope that this recipe might even become a video.

    Good job adding the grams too! Keep up the good work

    Just made this bread! Wonderful! My son says it’s the best Keto Bread we’ve tried so far! Thank you for these amazing recipes-

    This is my favorite bread. It is flat but can be cut open to make thin bread slices for small sandwiches. Just right for summer tomato 'samwches'

    This is also my favourite bread. I have made it twice, once in a loaf tin and it turned out great. Today I used a 6 hole bagel pan, cut the recipe ingredients to 6 serves and baked for 20 minutes. Lovely.

    I just measured 2 tbsp of Psyllium Husk powder and it was 27g, not 15g. Should I be using 1 tbsp? (8 servings)

    Curious - could you make this bread in a break maker?

    What can I use to substitute for eggs? Any thoughts??

    Hello everyone! I tried this one last night and came out just perfect!! Taste and appearance (not purple at all)... If there were only a thing to improve would be the "airy" inside the bread... I couldn't get to make it with more "bubbles" (?) inside of it... any advice??? I did two weeks ago the "Coconut-flour bread" and it was the same thing: Excelent flavor, only a bit heavy in consistency. So im guessing its something im doing grong. Thanks in advance!!
  12. César
    YES.. this is important so the seeds can "glue" to the bread... also you can get a crispy crust on top of it.. i would even recommend to brush it with a whisked egg.
  13. César
    I did the 10 servings version and i used the exact amount of tbsp's the recipe says... so i would recommend you do the same.

    Made the sesame Ket bread, it was delicious, but the bread did not rise, and yes I did follow the recipe... any suggestions!

    thanks

    Hi Everyone,
    Can this bread be made in a bread maker (made and cooked)? any adjustments needed?

    Unfortunately not - there is no need for keto dough to be kneaded and left to rise.

    I found this mix to be extremely runny. I checked and re-checked the ingredients, and I had them correct, but it was really runny. is I added more almond flour and some coconut flour to stiffen the mix, but the bread turned out stodgy. It looked more like a cake consistency, nothing at all like the picture. Is the mixture supposed to be very runny?

    I added 1 tablespoon of Nutritional Yeast and 1 tsp of instant yeast for flavoring. It is one of the best breads ever.
  19. Kimberley
    I love this bread. It turned out perfectly. I typically will cut thin slices, toast them on a frying pan, and then add my toppings. So good.

    Hi!
    Is it possible to use Soya Flour instead of Almond flour? How would the rest of the proportions change, in that case?

    We have not tested this recipe with soy flour. 1/4c is 10g carbs, which is higher than almond flour. Many people avoid soy as it can be a hormone disruptor.

    I did the bread recipe and found it runny also so add another cup of almond flour turned out find

    Hi,

    I used goat cheese instand of the cream cheese. The batter was almost like dough, a little bit more running.
    I made 4 servings and used a small round pan and it turned out quite nicely. The taste is great, I tasted it still warm, but it seems to be quit nice. I dont untherstand how the picture of the recepi shows us a white bread. It is more like cornbread , the psyllium husk turns mostly every bread colered (but not purple!).

    I am going to expirement with different pans but not with the recepe!

    Enjoy

    sorry for the typo's...

    This is very good! I followed the recipe, and I too added nutritional yeast to the batter. Also, sprinkled chia seeds with the sesame seeds on top.
    And to my surprise, the color is golden! The first keto bread, I have made, that isn't purple LOL.
  26. Angel
    I absolutely love this bread but once its been out the over for any time it collapses and goes very stoggy and wet at the bottom ... is there anything im doing wrong .. Im following the recipe but failing at this one thing
  27. Diane S
    Followed the recipe exactly, and I did not get a “dough”. It was more like a batter. Would have been impossible to brush with oil, so I sprinkled the sesame seeds anyway. Hoping for the best, it’s still in the oven. At 30 min, I poked it, and the knife came out clean. Took it out of the oven....smells great. I’ll check back in when we slice it...fingers crossed!
  28. Diane S
    OK, just cut the bread.....looks nothing like the picture! No “airy holes” like the picture. So let’s talk. Many of you said it turned out perfect, but I also followed the recipe perfectly with a different result. It tastes great, but I’m wondering why the difference. Is it possible the recipe is inaccurate? Just sayin’.

    So I made this, I agree with other comments...I would call this a batter, not a dough. I added an additional 1/2 cup of almond flour to thicken to the consistency of cornbread batter.

    I always calculate my recipes... this one winds up 5 net carbs per slice/190 calories/15g fat/7protein/12 slices per loaf, the way I made it... not sure if it was the type of cream cheese I used, or if these slices should just be paper thin!

    It's in the oven now.. smells great, had risen beautifully (make sure to use fresh baking powder!) can't wait to taste!

    I just made 8 servings, i followed the recipe and it turned out beautifully!

    is there anything I can use instead of the ground psyllium husk powder as I am unable to get hold of this in my area?

    Just made this, turned out great, crumbly on the outside, very soft and fluff on the inside. After reading comments of people who found the batter too runny, I decided to leave out the cream cheese and it still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe, very easy with very handy ingredients in a Keto pantry.

    Unfortunately there is not a good substitute for the psyllium in this recipe.

    Just made a loaf (10 portion). I did leave out the cream cheese - had read the reviews - certainly not a dough, more batter like. Baked 30 min, tested , cooled down and sliced. A very fine textured result, held together well, sliced well.
    I live right at sea level and have found that most of my baking had to be adjusted in some form - wonder if it could be anyone else's issue?
    Will make again
  35. clacina
    Forgot to say, the slice are quite golden - like the pics.

    mills and grams for metric countries?

    All of our recipes have a US/Metric toggle above the list of ingredients.

  38. Snezana
    I have tried both the version with and, as suggested here, without the cream cheese. Love them both but have to admit that the version with cream cheese tastes more like a savoury cake whereas the one without is more (corn)bread like. I followed the recipe and added 1 tbs of nutritional yeast (thanks for the idea DonnaL). Thanks for the recipe(s), this is my top 3 keto bread :)

    Anyone know how many slices are included in a serving?? Do you jut cut loaf into eight slices and each is one serving?

    That depends on how many slices you cut! If you cut 8 slices, then yes, one slice is a serving. If you cut 16 slices then 2 slices is a serving.
