  • ¾ cup 175 ml (100 g) coconut flour
  • 13 cup 75 ml (50 g) sesame seeds
  • ½ cup 125 ml (100 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
  • 7 oz. 200 g cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 6 6 eggeggs
  • 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, for topping

Instructions

Instructions are for 20 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Mix all dry ingredients, except the seeds for the topping, in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk all remaining ingredients until smooth.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix thoroughly. Place the dough in a greased bread pan, about 4 x 7 inches (non-stick or use parchment paper). Sprinkle the top with the seeds.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    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

    excelente ... muy buena y rica este pan...gracias por la receta ....

    Oh my it's good! Mine came out like grocery store sliced bread. Maybe because I sifted? Fabulous
  17. Kathi Creed
    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?
    Reply: #169
  19. Kristin Parker Team Diet Doctor
    Almond meal is much coarser than almond flour and will result in a gritty texture in baked goods.
  20. Angel
    One could reason that if coconut oil could be subbed that the butter is sweet cream and unsalted. Coconut oil is not salted.
  21. Robeil
    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.
  33. Margie
    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.
  36. Catherine
    Same here I just baked my bread and followed the instructions, took it out of the tin and parchment to let cool on the rack and it just all started to flop open in all directions so I had to prop it up at either side to support it, however it tastes delicious but I would love to know what I did wrong so if anyone has ideas please reply...thankyou from Ireland ☘️

    I made this recipe yesterday and I thought it was really good. My husband did as well. The only problem was I had to make myself stop eating it, as it was too good. I baked mine for 65 minutes on the lowest level of my gas oven. I added 1 tsp of salt and it was enough. I also lined the pan with parchment paper and didn't grease the pan. We used it for sandwiches and it didn't fall apart. I followed the recipe and used the ground caraway seeds (1 tsp).

    We have not tested this recipe with substitutes for the flax. It may be easier to find a different recipe.

    The full nutrition information is in the Nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients. Psyllium is a powder and you can find it in the laxatives department of your store. Just make sure you get unflavored/unsweetened. If you can't find it locally, many get it from Amazon.

    I baked today , very delicious
    But when i want to slice it was not easy and it is powdered
  43. Sheida
    Does everybody know why my bread is cracked ?
    I did everything base on recepie , i cannot slice easly and it turned powdered
  44. Vita
    A bit disappointed . After reading all these reviews had hoped it would taste closer to real bread. It's pretty dense and smells of egg even though I reduced the eggs from 6 to 4 (after tweaking almond flour & coconut a bit). Still searching for that perfect keto bread recipe.

    Should I use whole flaxseed or flaxseed meal?

    Should I use whole flaxseed or flaxseed meal?

    You can use either, but the whole flaxseed is what was used when we made the recipe.

  47. Marcela
    I just made my bread, but instead of placing dough in a bread pan, I divided my dough and made 20 small rolls. Then I placed them on a cooking sheet and flattened them with my hand a little, they almost look like small pitta breads. Delicious!!!

    You can use sesame seeds in place of the poppy seeds and omit the fennel.

    I'm sorry, I am not aware of a good substitute for cream cheese. Sometimes coconut cream can work well in place of heavy cream.

    Can I use ground flax and sesame seeds? My husband can't stomach whole seeds at all due to Divertikulitis.

    Many people with diverticulitis find that it's best to avoid seeds of any kind to help prevent flare ups. Ground seeds should work well in this though.
