I am a little confused about beating the egg whites with a hand mixer. I used 12 large egg whites as the recipe says. However, I did not add cream of tartar as I have none. I have been beating these egg whites for almost 40 minutes with an electric hand mixer and I still have not yet come to the consistency as your photo shows for stiff egg whites. So my questions are, is this amount of time normal for beating the egg whites? And what amount of time would you recommend if this is not the normal amount of time?

keto recipes chicken breast


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!!

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!
Without being there in the kitchen with you, it’s difficult to say what the issue was; however, I can definitely help you troubleshoot…did you cook it for the full amount of time the recipe calls for, and did you cover the top with foil for the last 15 minutes? If so, there might be an issue with your oven’s calibration (you can get an inexpensive oven thermometer to check this). Another tip is to let your eggs come to room temperature first. Another factor is the altitude at which you’re baking; if you’re at high altitude, you might need to slightly adjust the oven temperature and bake time. The other thing to remember is that there will usually be a little bit of fall to most keto breads (in fact, every keto bread we’ve ever made) because keto flours lack gluten and are naturally quite dense; however, you can see in the photos, we still got a fairly good rise on this loaf. I hope these tips help!

Just made my 3rd loaf. My technique has been improving each time so I am getting a better result! I had never baked anything before like this and there is an art involved. But the deliciousness has never been absent… the mixture of these ingredients has been amazing. Just going from Salvador Dali bread to Leonardo Divinci for style is the new goal!
Chili is one of my go-to meals because I can make it in large batches and freeze for future use. It’s nice to know I can make it keto friendly and have all the same familiar flavors and spices that I love in regular chili. By making this tomatillo keto chili in the instant pot the flavors meld together and the meat breakdowns faster and infuse into the sauce.

Lemon garlic chicken is a recipe that will never go out of style and as a bonus, its keto approved! The fresh lemon and garlic infuse into the chicken making it juicy and so flavorful. The instant pot takes the guesswork out of cooking chicken. To complete this keto friendly meal serve the lemon garlic chicken with a dark green vegetable that’ll fill you up!
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.

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


Hi Anita, I double checked my carton egg whites. 3/4 cup of egg whites is equivalent to 4 large whole eggs, not 4 large egg whites. Mine has a chart for converting whole eggs, and the conversion for egg whites only is below the chart. It says 2 tablespoons of liquid egg whites are equivalent to the egg white of 1 whole egg. So, 12 large egg whites would be 24 tablespoons, or 1 1/2 cups as written in the recipe. Hope this helps!

Can I lose 60 pounds in 3 months


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!
Hi Christy, It might be a little more difficult, but in theory possible. You’d need to stir the dry ingredients, then use a hand mixer instead of food processor to mix them with the butter. Then, after beating the egg whites separately, you’d need to mix in part of them, trying not to break them down, then fold in the rest once it’s easier to fold.
If you are like me and are a great fan of tuna salad, here is a fantastic recipe for you to try! Make these for a tasty lunch and you will really enjoy the combination of soft and creamy tuna salad with the zingy taste of the pickles. Using small pickles would also make these ‘sandwiches’ perfect as party food. If you don’t like pickles you can substitute cucumber, but you will lose some of the flavor.
Sushi Nori Wraps. If you like sushi, then you’ll love using nori as a keto-friendly wrap. When you add moist ingredients to it, the nori will transform from a brittle chip to a durable, pliable wrap. What’s even better is that nori wraps have no net carbs at all and only come with ten calories per sheet. Plus, they are easy to find in the grocery store, and you can even get them shipped directly to your house (just search for Nori Wraps on Amazon).

There are delicious lactose-free dairy products out there, including cream cheese, sour cream, and even some yogurts. Furthermore, the higher the fat concentration in your dairy (e.g. butter, ghee, heavy cream, hard cheeses like parmesan and romano), the less lactose there usually is in the dairy product. But if you’re sensitive to all forms of dairy, you might need a vegan alternative, even if you’re not vegan.

Does intermittent fasting work for 12 hours


To Make Sure You Get the Best Rise: Make sure your baking powder and yeast are fresh. Let your egg whites come to room temperature before using. Cook for the recommended amount of time (and make sure your oven is properly calibrated). Measure all ingredients carefully (we recommend weighing the dry ingredients). Try to avoid the temptation to slice it while it's hot because this can cause the loaf to fall. 
I havie tried MANY bread recipes and they are all so eggy. They taste like burnt eggs! I LOVE the recipes on this site. You can tell she has tried them until they work. I make her bread recipes I. my breadmaker and they are fabulous. They do not rise quite as much as a regular loaf but taste fantastic. I do add 1 1/2 tsp yeast and a 1/2 tsp of sugar to activate the yeast; I put these in with a 1/4 cup of hot water and userhe quick bread setting. It is the only low carb bread I have tried that actually smells like bread when it comes out of the bread machine! My family was home for a visit and they all loved it. I had just told my husband that I wished this woman would come out with a recipe book….I got on this morning and what do you know!! We have loved most of her recipes. Her cream cheese pancakes made in a waffle maker with a few blueberries added in, along with sugar free syrup are FANTASTIC! I felt like I was eating at cracker barrel:)

Why is the ketogenic diet good for epilepsy


I’ve fallen in love with mackerel! It’s an oily fish that’s consumed all over the world, but not something I got into until recently. It’s high in omega-3’s, which is something I’m always looking to get more of. This recipe takes mackerel and turns it into a flavor-packed meal. We marinate the fish in ginger, lemon, and coconut aminos before roasting it in the oven. The base of the bowl is broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, and peppers. Then everything is finished off with roasted almonds and ...

Should you wear a bra to bed


Hi Amber, Yes, the baking powder and egg whites do help it rise a bit, just not as much as regular bread. It’s hard to say what went wrong, if anything. Everyone’s palate is a little different, so it’s possible you just didn’t like it, or maybe something didn’t go as it should have. It could be that the batter and whites weren’t folded together quite enough?
Well my Bread wasn’t tall enough for say sandwich stuff, and I am not sure if I did anything wrong, I know I used the wrong sized bread pan so that is one thing. However, I couldn’t believe how great it tasted, it was more like a moist custard shortbread. The texture and color were perfect. I cut some thick slices and buttered both sides cooked them in a pan. I spread some sugar-free preserves on top, wow is that good. I may not have made it as intended but I can’t complain. The flavor is amazing.
When cookie season rolls around, you are going to need something to tide you over. These cookies are easy to make and are great for tea, packed lunches, or for a work potluck. Or if your house is anything like mine, stash them in a decorative tin as gifts. Everyone loves baked goods! The recipe itself has minimal prep and execution time; the most time-consuming part will be if you choose to separate the egg whites. To cut down on prep time, you can use packaged egg whites from a grocery ...
I have a question I hope you can set me straight. I was putting the almond flour in my dry measuring cup and it didn’t seem right. I checked around the internet and found someone who said always weigh almond flour. So, I did. 8oz. = 1 cup so 8oz almond flour. It looks like enough but so much more than one dry measure cup. I got as far as doing the food processor part and realized I needed more eggs. So, I’m kinda in holding until I go to the store so, I thought I’d ask.. have I made a terrible mistake and wasted a lot of supplies or am I cool? 

Can you eat mcdonalds on keto


Really miss bread! Made per recipe including options. Looked really good. Sliced good. But it had spots and tasted very much like eggs. Could not get past egg taste. Next day made grilled cheese sandwiches. Texture was good and sandwich looked great. Again tasted too much like eggs. May try again using less sweetner and lots less eggs. However I will be trying your other recipes.
I am a little confused about beating the egg whites with a hand mixer. I used 12 large egg whites as the recipe says. However, I did not add cream of tartar as I have none.

I had some Ricotta cheese that I needed to use so I decided to make this recipe. Although I wasn’t exactly sure how to calculate 1 1/2 lb to cups, I guesstimated using the Ricotta that I had which was about 24 oz. It turned out delicious!!! I also used an emulsifier instead of a blender. I didn’t want to have to scrape off the sides because I didn’t want to waste any of this deliciousness. I used strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. OH MY–DELISH!!!! Thanks so much for putting this recipe out there for us.

How do you check your blood pressure with your fingers


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!
Hi Jen, It sounds like it needed to bake for longer – this is why it sunk and was still moist. The timing varies by ovens and even different pans. I hope you’ll try it again and just keep it in there for longer. You can cover the top if it starts to brown too much. For the one you made, depending on how moist it was in the middle, you may be able to salvage it somewhat by pan frying the slices.

Did Shark Tank invest in PureFit Keto


Hi Howard, You’re right that this bread doesn’t rise much – the volume comes mostly from whipping the egg whites. If the whites fell too much, the bread might not be tall enough. But even if they didn’t, it might still be shorter than some other tall bread loaves. Feel free to multiply the recipe by 1.5 if you prefer a taller loaf. I’m glad you liked the flavor and texture!

Is there a topical cream for arthritis


This is now my go to for lo-carb bread recipe. It is SO EASY! I made it last weekend, Instead of Xanthan gum I used konjac root powder, it worked just fine, my baking time was more like 50 minutes and I did cover the top loosely with foil for the first 15 minutes so the top wouldn’t brown so quickly (maybe why my cooking time was so long?) I also added a pinch of Bakers yeast (brewers yeast is NOT gluten free) just for flavor and stevia 3/4 T. This bread makes really good grilled cheese or avocado toast! Very yummy! Thanks for this recipe!
Not in the mood for something savory or cheesy? How about something sweet and delicious instead? Try out the third keto breadstick variety, Cinnamon sugar. Don’t worry, you will not be consuming any sugar. With this recipe, you will be using calorie-free swerve sweetener, butter, and cinnamon, which will come together to create a delicious sugar-free alternative to cinnamon sugar that will help lower your blood sugar levels.

Does diet soda break ketosis


Going keto might compel you to start experimenting with ingredients you would have never used otherwise. These vegan treats, for example, are held together with aquafaba—the liquid from a can of chickpeas, believe it or not. Still, the shredded coconut and the smooth chocolate on the bottom make them taste like the mouthwatering macaroons you know and love.

Does gluten cause belly fat


The best part about this bread is that it makes it so much easier to eat a low carb diet. Yes, there are some savage beasts (joking) that don’t miss bread at all and are happy to just eat bacon seven times a day, but if you’re anything like me, bread was a staple of your diet growing up and you still have a look of yearning in your eyes when they drop that bread basket in the middle of the table at family dinner. I feel your pain. This low carb bread recipe is your shoulder to cry on.
