Ingredients

  • 1 cup 250 ml (125 g) almond flour
  • ¾ cup 175 ml (100 g) coconut flour
  • 513 tbsp 80 ml (50 g) sesame seeds
  • ½ cup 120 ml (75 g) flaxseed
  • ¼ cup 60 ml (30 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • 3 tsp 3 tsp (15 g) baking powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp ground fennel seeds or ground caraway seeds
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
  • 6 6 eggeggs
  • 7 oz. 200 g cream cheese
  • ½ cup 125 ml melted butter or melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup 175 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (10 g) poppy seeds or sesame seeds

Instructions

Instructions are for 20 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Take the cream cheese out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature, that way it blends better.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  3. Mix all dry ingredients, except the seeds for the topping (poppy or sesame seeds) in a bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk all remaining ingredients until smooth.
  5. Add the dry mixture to the batter and mix thoroughly. Place the dough in a greased bread pan, about 4 x 7 inches (non-stick or use parchment paper).
  6. Bake for about 45 minutes on the lower rack in the oven. Prick the bread with a knife to see if it's ready, it should come out clean. Take it out of the oven and remove the bread from the form.
  7. Remove the parchment paper and let the loaf cool on a rack. If the loaf is allowed to cool in the form the crust will be soggy.
  8. Serve it freshly baked with your favorite toppings.

Serving suggestions

This bread is great for toasting and can also be used to make your favorite sandwiches. Fill it with bacon, lettuce and tomato for an awesome BLT or serve it as a side to your favorite low-carb or keto soup.

Storing the bread

This bread needs to be stored in the fridge or in the freezer. When stored in the fridge it keeps up to 5 days. If you want to store it in the freezer we suggest slicing it before doing so. Place a bit of parchment paper between each slice to make single servings easier. Thaw the bread in the fridge or in room temperature and then toast it for best flavor.

    It only calls for 1tsp Salt. Maybe you used a Tablespoon? I once made a cake and added 1 cup instead of teaspoon of salt. LOL

    Excellent bread. Best tasting I've found in 3 years of a keto WOE. Thank you

    The bread is amazing!! Better than anything I’ve ever bought at the store. This was my first time making bread and not just Keto bread but it was easy and it tastes amazing. I used a silicone mold (9x5) and sprayed with non-stick butter flavor. Since my mold was bigger than what was recommended, my loaf was smaller but wider. I was able to easily cut 20 slices. The bread has a slight crisp but is so soft on the inside.

    I followed the recipe to the tee, and this bread is awesome !!

    If unsalted butter is supposed to be used, the recipe should state that. This recipe just says “butter”. Here in the US, “butter” means salted.

    In the oven now but more like a batter than a dough and had to use a tin twice the size than the one stated. Hope it comes out okay!

    Can this be made in a bread maker? Are there any changes that need to be made?

    Hi Roydon did you get a response to what constitutes heavy whipping cream? I have just been using thickened cream? Not sure if that is ok. I am not aiming for a keto diet - low carb only. Cheers

    Heavy whipping cream is usually 35-40% fat.

    Click the Nutrition tab under the list of ingredients. That carb count is the net carb count.

    Hello there, In the UK, double cream is close to 45-50%.

    Do you have to whip the cream before incorporating in the mixture?

    Thanks

    Oh my it's good! Mine came out like grocery store sliced bread. Maybe because I sifted? Fabulous

    turned out excellent but i knew when I looked at the mix it would call for a bigger pan. I used a regular sized loaf pan and cook time was perfect.

    Can you use almond meal (ground almonds) instead of almond flour?

    Almond meal is much coarser than almond flour and will result in a gritty texture in baked goods.

    One could reason that if coconut oil could be subbed that the butter is sweet cream and unsalted. Coconut oil is not salted.

    I'm shocked this bread came out so delicious...
    I initially forgot to add the eggs and had already mixed wet and dry ingredients but I beat the eggs and added them to the mixture. What a sticky mess the dough was, I had to use my hands to mix it all then slop in the pan lol... I would recommend using unsalted butter as I find it slightly salty. I might also try coconut oil but I do like the buttery taste of it at the moment.
    The measurements should definitely be by weight in grams as I'm using my scale more since eating Keto and it would make the bread more accurate for everyone.
    This bread reminds me of a beer bread I used to make before Keto.
    I will make it again...

    Mine turned out grey in colour and pretty solid. Nothing like the picture.

    I just made the bread today and used ground flax seed as the body absorbs it better than the whole seeds. This is definitely better than any bread I have ever baked, including whole wheat bread made from wheat we grew on the farm and milled it before baking it.

    Has anyone used coconut cream instead of cream in this recipe??

    Oh. My. Goodness. Best Keto bread! Have tried all the cloud bread, fat head dough, etc. Always a little disappointed. But this — It slices beautifully, looks like bread, tastes like bread, smells like like bread. I ate two warm slices, one with butter and one with Keto lemon curd. The only changes I made were leaving out the ground fennel (didn’t have any) and using hemp seeds in place of sesame seeds in the batter. Brilliant recipe.

    Love the great results for the bread, as I am so used to the wheat flavor and texture, thank you, I will try it. What is actually the best psyllium to use because it says on the recipe , “it depend on the psyllium you use”, that throws it off and leaves you not knowing what to buy. Also, not many east or quick snacks for the time a person is switching over.

    We use Now brand psyllium when developing our recipes.

    My bread came out really crumbly and fell apart. The texture is sort of like a crumbly banana bread. I followed the recipe exactly. I am wondering if it is my almond flour that is the problem.
