If you’ve ever bought low carb bread at the store, you probably noticed two main things:

Keto Bread Ingredients

  • Almond flour — We used blanched almond flour because it is slightly finer than almond meal and will create the look of white bread when baked. However, you can use almond meal if that’s what you have on hand, as it is pretty much the same carb-wise.
  • Swerve granular sugar — You can also use Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener*, which is another one of our favorite keto sweeteners.
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Butter — Make sure it’s at room temperature, for easier mixing
  • Cream cheese — Also at room temperature
  • Eggs

*We love Lakanto brand monk fruit sweeteners — if you shop through my link and use code “SOCCERMOM” you can save 15% every time you purchase! This particular sweetener combines the clean taste of monk fruit with the easy mix-ability of erythritol for an unbeatable blend!

How to Make Keto Bread

I love this recipe because it is so simple! Only 7 ingredients and no fussing with yeast, rising time, etc. 

First, you’ll cream the butter and sweetener in a large mixing bowl. Then add the cream cheese and eggs.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, then pour them into the bowl of wet ingredients. Mix until everything is well incorporated.

How do I know when my bread is done?

To make sure your bread is done, you want to look for two things:

  1. The crust is a beautiful golden brown.
  2. When you press down on the middle of the loaf, it bounces right back up.

If the loaf squishes and doesn’t rebound at all when you push on it, you’ll need to bake for a few minutes to make sure it is done in the middle.

How to Store Keto Bread

There are a few different ways that you can store your low carb bread, and I’ll detail the pros/cons to each:

  1. Store at room temperature like regular bread — If you live in a humid climate, I don’t recommend this method because keto bread absorbs moisture faster than normal bread. This bread recipe will last a couple days at room temperature, which is fine if you plan to enjoy it right away. If you want it to last longer, try storing in the fridge or freezing.
  2. Keep refrigerated — To extend the life of your bread, wrap the loaf in paper towels or parchment paper and store on a plate in the fridge. Avoid sealing in a plastic bag, storage container, or anything that will trap moisture and make your bread turn soggy.
  3. Freeze it — Keto bread freezes well and can last for months this way! If you want to enjoy it a slice at a time, wrap individual slices in plastic wrap or parchment paper and keep in a freezer bag. That way you can take out individual slices to thaw. You can also wrap the entire loaf and thaw it all at once.
