I was playing around the kitchen this week trying to make a new bread recipe for stuffing. Last year I had used my Ultimate Keto Buns to make stuffing and had basically tripled the batch, but this year I wanted to try making a new recipe just for fun. It took me a couple of tries to get the right consistency as the first tries were either too soft, wet or too eggy. I usually like to make breads or baked goods when my boyfriend comes over so that I can make him taste and he usually tells me if anything is weird tasting. If he approves, then I'll upload it to the blog because he doesn't eat low carb so low carb treats are usually something he's not interested in unless it tastes like the real thing.
I wanted to make a bread that didn't need xanthan gum or psyllium to hold it together so I thought of separating the egg whites and yolks and making it like the way I make sponge cakes. On my first try, I had only put homemade almond butter in the batter and it wasn't firm enough and tasted like eggs too much so for my final round, I added some coconut flour to absorb some of the excess liquid, decreased the eggs, upped the almond butter and added some spices. Don't worry, the bread does not have any coconut taste! I personally hate coconut so the amount that I put in was just so that it made the batter thicker! I actually also have a second gluten-free low carb bread recipe that I'll upload soon and this one is made with oat fiber!
If you'd like to try a lower carb option, you can definitely use this keto bread recipe. It's made with a mix of almond flour, chia seeds and eggs so it's relatively low carb.
You can use any type of nut butter for this recipe, cashew butter tastes awesome, but it's a little higher in carbs. Also, the bread itself isn't very big, I just used a 9x5inch loaf pan. I ending up cutting it up, toasting it and making some delicious Low Carb Stuffing this year with it. You can accompany the stuffing with some delicious Keto Turkey Giblet Gravy and don't forget the Keto Thanksgiving Turkey! You'll have the perfect menu for Thanksgiving!
Low Carb Paleo Bread
- 3 eggs
- ¾ cup almond butter (210g/7.4oz)
- 4 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion flakes
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- Preheat the oven to 150C/300F.
- Separate the egg whites and egg yolks into two different bowls.
- Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
- In the egg yolks bowl, add the almond butter, almond milk and lemon juice. Mix with a hand mixer until you get a nice thick cream.
- Add the dry ingredients to the batter and continue to mix.
- Add ⅓ of the egg whites to the batter and mix with your hand mixer. Add the next third and mix again, and add the last ⅓, but this time fold it in with a silicone spatula instead of the hand mixer.
- Line some parchment paper to the sides of a small loaf pan (9x5inch/23x13cm). Pour the bread batter inside the pan and place in the oven.
- Bake for 50 minutes. Take it out of the oven and let completely cool before slicing.

Just finished making 2 loaves! So easy to make. I can’t believe how tasty this bread is! My best friend and I fell in love. If your thinking about doing this....do it. We followed the very easy instructions and can not wait to have more tomorrow for breakfast! Wish I can post my pictures but Thanks for this Mira!
Just made this. So easy. I love that there are so few ingredients. It is deli ious with a realnice crust. I understand it is not easy to get it to rise much but any suggestions to get it a little higher. Would putting it in a smaller thin effect the bake time.
Just wondering if this recipe will work with roasted crunchy peanut butter as its the only nut I can have?
Yep, any nut butter will work.
Hello:) Can I use regular butter or ghee instead of almond? I'd like to avoid baking nuts...
Hi Kasia, butter and ghee are not the same as almond butter. Almond butter is not an oil so you can't replace it with butter/ghee. Almond butter is a nut paste. You can sub the almond butter for other nut butters like cashew butter, macadamia butter, etc.
Would all-natural peanut butter (no sugar) work instead of almond butter?
I missed toast with pâté!
Cman you replace the coconut flour with almond flour?
The coconut flour was to thicken the batter a bit, so you'd need to add a a bit more almond flour.
Is there more flour of somekind besides 2 tbs of coconut flour??
It’s an almond butter bread so the flour is actually the almond butter! The coconut flour is just to thicken the batter a little.
Thanks so much for this recipe! I have all the ingredients except the lemon juice ... would vinegar work instead do you think? Thanks! Carol
