Well, I made your Keto bread and was disappointed. It tasted very eggy! I over cooked it like you said and it was still too moist. (I even used thermometer). I’m wondering about maybe an altitude issue since I live in Denver. If I make it again, I’ll try less egg whites. But it still didn’t taste anything like bread. I’m having trouble switching to Paleo! Help.

How much sweeter is acesulfame than sugar


Deb, Thank you so much for leaving a comment – we’re happy to hear you enjoyed the bread! Yes, the yeast in this recipe is for aroma/flavor. Unfortunately we aren’t at high altitude so we don’t have experience baking in that way. We’ve read that it can be helpful to slightly decrease baking powder, slightly increase liquids, and increase oven temperature by 25F. Please let us know how it goes if you try the recipe with any of these changes, and sorry we couldn’t be more help with this!

Is peppermint tea a herbal tea


One of the foods that people tell us they miss most after going keto is bread. (And cookies or cakes, but you get the idea.) We get it, bread is undeniably comfort food. Growing up, it wasn’t unheard of to eat toast for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and maybe even a slice of buttered bread along with dinner. Not only is that ton of carbs, but it’s also a lot of empty calories when we could have been eating real-food alternatives, like this bread made from nutrient-dense ingredients!
A Tex-Mex style casserole packed with bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, and jalapeno, then topped with cheddar cheese. Great served with a dollop of sour cream, or even extra jalapeno if you can handle the heat! If you love Mexican flavors, and meatloaf, then this recipe will be one you enjoy too. To make this meal fast we used a food processor, but you could also chop everything by hand if you don’t happen to have one. You want the vegetables to be a chunky, colorful, and flavor-packed ...

Is eating steak good for you


My husband was just put on a low carb diet for a health issue he is having. He was really missing bread so I made this for him. He is super, super picky and LOVED this bread. I made two loaves at the same time and froze the second. Just thawed it to eat and it takes the same as when it came out of the oven. The hubs eats a slice, toasted with avocado with breakfast every morning. Thanks for this recipe!
Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with making an almond flour bread. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.

Simple replacement (from heavy cream to coconut milk) is adequate in most situations, but in some cases, coconut milk should actually be the go-to! A seafood chowder or creamy broccoli soup does great with coconut milk instead of heavy cream. If you’re looking for more worldly dishes to try at home, consider this coconut Thai soup by Gnom-Gnom or a tom kha gai (coconut chicken soup) by Ketogasm. Both call for coconut milk from the start.


What’s for lunch? If you answer with a less-than-enthusiastic response, something’s wrong. The keto lifestyle is not meant to be a punishment, so your lunches should not be met with a sense of dread or disappointment. If this is your situation, I encourage you to take a look at these awesome keto lunch recipes to add a little spark of excitement back into your daily keto routine!

Not sure about using erythritol in your baking?  Registered Dietitian Frances Largeman-Roth, RD, explains, “Despite their name, sugar alcohols do not contain any alcohol at all. Their chemical structure is a combination of a sugar molecule and an alcohol molecule, but they don’t behave like either one.”  You can read more about erythritol and sugar alcohols here.

I want to say thank you. I don’t always have time to bake, and this is a life saver, of sorts. My brother is diabetic, and his doctor recommended a low-carb diet; I’m diabetic also, and gluten intolerant. This bread has the most wonderful taste and texture, and is so quick and easy, I’ve already committed the recipe to memory. Even my SO, who is neither gluten free nor diabetic, likes the taste and texture. I did cut down the salt, because like some others, I found the 1/4 teaspoon to be too salty. Other than that, raves and kudos!! We are thrilled, and planning all the different ways we’re going to use this bread. Many thanks!!

Can I juice while intermittent fasting


Unlike traditional Caesar salads which are full of dairy and croutons, this one uses kale leaves for added nutrition and a keto-friendly dressing which is dairy-free. This dish is packed with different flavors and textures, making the salad much more interesting. You have fresh, juicy raspberries, soft boiled egg and crispy bacon – a party in your mouth!

How much dark chocolate can you eat on keto


When I was growing up my favorite dessert was my moms’ zebra brownies. They were always from a box, and it was a treat because it was like two desserts in one: brownie base stuffed with creamy cheesecake filling! I can’t believe it took me this long to make this decadent treat because once I did, I realized it’s so simple. This recipe is a spin-off from my favorite keto flourless brownie recipe with a few adjustments. Because the cheesecake filling offers a bit more moisture and weight, ...


I’ve been on Keto for about a week. I’m one of those people who said I could never give carbs or sugar. I’m still not sure that I am, but for week one so far so good. I made your keto bread and it really helped me get through the weekend. I had a brunch to attend at a relative’s house and I was able to bring this bread, toast it up and partake of all the toppings they had to offer. And as I’m typing I’m eating a tuna melt made by frying the bread in butter and topping with cheese and Tuna. I feel like I’m eating a real lunch. So for now, thanks for helping me power on!
Julian Bakery Paleo Bread. Julian Bakery makes loaves of bread that are made out of coconut flour or both coconut flour and almond flour. Both varieties have 1 gram of net carbs per slice and are paleo friendly and gluten free. You can usually find Julian Bakery Paleo Bread at your local health food store or if you can’t find it there, just order it from their website.
Alyssa, one more thing. Both the bowl and the beaters need to be spotlessly clean. If there is one hint of oil anywhere the whites will not beat properly. Nicole is correct about not using a plastic bowl. Plastic will even absorb oil to say nothing of the microscopic amounts that get into the surface when it’s scratched. When baking it is always best to use a metal or glass bowl for all of your mixing.

Can you whip quark


How am I JUST coming across this recipe after almost two years of being keto? This is THE ONE!! After I made the first loaf, I knew this was going to be used for my Thanksgiving stuffing. I did a test run, and, no lie, you cannot tell that this is a keto stuffing! I’m downright giddy! So I made six loaves of this amazing bread today and put them in the freezer for Thanksgiving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this recipe. I’m making two more loaves tomorrow for sandwiches and toast. Oh, and I used all the ingredients, including the optional ones, and the results were perfect. Hands down the best keto sandwich bread out there (and I’ve literally tried dozens).

Will I lose weight on 1000 calories a day


This keto shepherd's pie casserole is a recipe you’ll make again and again. It’s filling comfort food at it’s finest, and a great dish to prepare when you’re trying to make sure you have leftover. Well-seasoned ground lamb is topped with a creamy cauliflower mash, then baked in the oven until golden. This recipe is a great way to use up any ground meat that you have on hand. We’re using lamb but you could also do this with chicken or beef. Just make sure that the cooked cauliflower is ...

Can I have cream in my coffee while intermittent fasting


Among the keto dessert recipes, this my all-time favorite. This easy nutty fudge recipe will make creating keto desserts a breeze for you. You can make a large batch and store in your fridge for when guests come over or just make a few to enjoy as a quick Keto snack whenever you feel like it. Why not create additional flavors (e.g., by using a different nut butter or adding in cinnamon or cacao powder) for variation and fun?
Agree with post regarding salt omitted salt, grilled it first time. It definitely reminds me of corn muffins texture. This morning make recipe added 1 T. of swerve brown sugar and dash or cinnamon,nutmeg and chopped walnuts OMG. It was great topped with cream cheese frosting(cream cheese,butter ,vanilla and swerve confection .Thanks can’t wait to try pumpkin spice next time I’m craving carrot cake thanks so much!
I made this for Sunday breakfast. Not EXACTLY like bread, but had excellent texture, structural integrity, and not eggy. I used a glass Pyrex and digital thermometer to verify a center temp of 205 degrees F. It did cook through and expanded no more than 10%. After completely cool it settle by about 25% and reminded me of how angelfood cake will sink if not cooled upside down. Next time I will use my angelfood cake pan, skip the parchment, and cool inverted for a taller bread and cook for an additional 10 mins for a drier bread to improve toasting. This is the first keto bread I ever made, and was pleased with the overall results. I did make croutons in a fry pan with butter,salt and garlic powder for a salad topper. I also plan on making some crostini for snacking and soups.
If there is one thing I'd change about this book - it's that it's not spiral-bound. (As a side note: this is professionally printed on HEAVY paper - not the cheap print-on-demand paper you often see. It definitely is built to last.) I can envision myself using it enough that I think I'll take it to be spiral bound myself. That will make it 100X easier to use.

What is xanthan gum Walmart


It’s very exciting to see how easy it is to make a classic dish like chicken cacciatore into something that’s keto friendly. With simple substitutions and cooking it in the instant pot, this will quickly be a meal you’ll add to your weekly rotation. The sauce is so hearty and chunky with juicy chicken that simply breaks apart because it’s so tender! Serve over spaghetti squash or vegetable noodle and enjoy!  
Hi Eva, That’s awesome that you are helping your son this way. I haven’t tried this with other tools, but you could probably use either the blender or the food processor. The key is to pulse in step 5, not just constantly blend, so that the whites don’t fully break down. Other than that, it should be pretty similar. As for the yolks, if you don’t want to make creme brulee, I usually just put a couple extras into an omelet (or breakfast casserole, or any other dish requiring cooked eggs) mixed with whole eggs.

Just made this and as a normal bread lover, I am very impressed! But do have a question. Can you over cook this? Mine seems a bit light inside, like a teenie bit mooshy, and can’t see it holding up in a sandwich. The temp was at 200 inside but I had already had it in for like 50 minutes longer than the posted time and I could still hear a little squish but didn’t want to over cook.

How much weight can you lose in three days


I have an EXTREMELY ignorant question…. Does tenting mean you just cover it? Or do you actually make it look like a little tent and keep the ends open so the air can get it? I just made this, and just covered it. The bread looked AWESOME after the first 40 minutes but then after covering it it came out a lot flatter. First slice was still pretty yummy, even though I probably should have cooked it a little longer. THANKS!! 

Is sugar bad for PCOS


Hi Jodi, I haven’t tried that, but don’t think it would work well for this recipe. First, yeast needs sugar (for it to consume – it’s not typically in the end result), so you’d need to add that. But also, just with how we are making the bread fluffy with beaten egg whites, I don’t think yeast would work. If you want to try adding yeast to a low carb bread, I would do it with this low carb bread recipe instead.
