Soft keto seed bread

Here's a good keto bread option, baked with almond and coconut flour. It's compact and very satisfying. One or two slices with plenty of toppings will go a long way.

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" (10 x 18 cm), 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.

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.

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.

    Sadly this recipe did not work well for me as your keto buns recipe that i used before. It turned out to be more of a pound cake than a loaf of bread, not sure what i did wrong. Was also very coconutty because i also used coconut oil instead of butter and it was crumbly even after cooling and toasting. Sadness. But i do love the other recipe and will try out a loaf with that.

    Rather than adapting this Seed Bread recipe to have no seeds, try this one https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/the-keto-bread

    I made this for the first time yesterday, following the instructions exactly as written. However, the bread is very crumbly and falls apart (although the taste is delicious!). I removed the loaf from the baking pan immediately, as stated. What could have happened here?

    Hmm, I'm not sure. Were all of your ingredients fresh? It seems like something didn't bind correctly.

    My first time baking bread, ever! Oh how I missed you! Came out awesome and the aroma, wow! Only thing I will change next time is the amount of poppy seeds for the topping....one teaspoon is sufficient. Came out looking burnt.

    Can it be done in a bread maker?

    Can it be done in a bread maker?

    There is no gluten in this recipe, therefore there is no need for a kneading stage. In general, bread makers are not necessary when making low carb bread recipes.

    I baked this last night (20 servings) in a standard loaf pan. It took about double the time listed here. I kept checking it at 10-15 minute intervals with an instant thermometer and at 212 F it was done and perfect and beautiful. I was out of heavy cream so substituted buttermilk, which turned out to be no problem at all--a bit less keto perhaps, but lord was it ever yummy!

    It is always a good idea to use temperature as a test for doneness when you can. I am glad you enjoyed this one!

    When you say flaxseed do you mean whole seeds or milled/ground flaxseed?

    Hi, Sarah! In this instance, it would be whole seeds.

    We have not tested the recipe with alternatives for the cream cheese or heavy whipping cream, but this recipe is in our testing queue and we will be sure to investigate if alternative ingredients will offer the same results.

    Seems great recipe, i am new in KETO diet! I will try it today but i will change the poppy seeds for chia seeds. I read that they are Keto friendly also! Thanks a lot for the recipe!

    Chia seeds are likely to absorb a lot of moisture. If the substitution doesn't work, try it with the poppy seeds as listed!

    I made one this past weekend! Great success with the grandkids. Today I decided to make 3 loafs and will freeze them & take them out when needed. It’s delicious toasted too! Thank you, wonderful recipe!

    We have not tested this recipe without the flax seed or with alternatives. If you need to avoid the ingredient, you can try one of our other bread recipes instead!

    Hi, how low carb is coconut flour? I bought a packet which says 57grams of carbs in 100grams. Should I be using that or do at all coz that sounds too much to me?

    This will depend, as different brands tend to have different carb counts. Coconut flour is used in small amounts per serving size, so the carbs used tend to be low.

    Does not look anything like the photo????????????????????
    Was disappointed that It did not have enough seeds. Next time I will add my vision.
    The bread was okay but had no creature.
