The Missing Ingredient for Amazing Keto Bread

If you’re like me, you came to the keto world with a terrible carb addiction and every meal was bread. Sandwich bread, pizza crust, or even just my terrible tempting nemesis… Toast. Like you I’m sure, I tried every keto-friendly bread recipe I could find. So many of these look like fluffy loaves of bread, but they all we’re missing something in either the taste or texture departments, sometimes both. Or worse, their main constituent ingredient was whipped eggs, and the result was basically an omelette loaf.

The good news after trying so many recipes, I found one recipe that was almost the one… It was just missing a final ingredient to give it everything you need for mouth watering keto french toast, sandwiches and so much more. It’s become a staple part of our keto diet here and I know when you give it a try you’ll find baking in your oven regularly too! The magic ingredient is sour cream. It gives your bread a smooth texture, kicks the taste up a notch in complexity and keeps the texture from being crumbly. The whole loaf of bread comes out to 12 grams of carbohydrates, that’s lower than 1 slice of store bought bread.

My bread pan was to big 9x5x3 but it still came out great so don't worry how big your pan is.

I wanted to note that in this recipe I used blanched almonds.

Pictures below are to show what it looks like to use a smaller bread pan and I used the same recipe!




Mug Bread

Whats awesome about this recipe is that you can mix it up how you want. You can make different flavors of bread, cheesy mug bread, garlic mug bread, even sweet cake mug cakes!

Whatever tickles fancy.  Mix ingredients in mug, than put in microwave for 90 seconds. That’s it, turn it into PBandJ,  ham and cheese, BLT, turkey lettuce bacon and cheese, vegan style or even little pizza’s.

The Base Ingredients are:

6 tbsp Almond Flour  (just under a 1/2 cup)

1 Egg

2 tsp Butter

1/2 tsp Baking powder

Sprinkle salt to taste

For mug cakes

Add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and your sweetener and chocolate if you want chocolate mug cake. So fun and easy.


Put on a wire rack and cool before cutting slices and for the garlic bread or any spices add to taste.

Don’t forget to pig out keto style!
