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.
So this is a labor intensive recipe and organization of ingredients a must. Review and plan is the best advice here. It will be your satisfying goto “i need some bread” recipe. I store mine in a cake tin container, since I’m the only one on Keto it lasts me the week. This doesn’t have a high rise but does rise and the texture is good. The biggest plus is it doesn’t taste eggy like other Keto bread recipes.Using only the egg whites and added psyllium husk help with this. Good luck.
Hi Brenda, There are various reasons but the most common one is that coconut flour is extremely absorbent and needs a lot of eggs to offset how much moisture it absorbs. If you used a liquid like milk or water, it would fall apart. That being said, this recipe is not dry or dense. Did you try making it? Whipping the egg whites creates the exact opposite effect and the bread turns out light and fluffy. Hope you’ll give it a try!

Zucchini is also an excellent source of potassium, an important mineral that plays a vital role in cardiovascular health because of its vasodilating properties. In other words, potassium helps your blood vessels relax to allow blood to flow more freely. As a result, it helps reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke and hypertension.

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 sagging breast be firm again


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!

Love this recipe! I use all the optional ingredients. A tsp Monkfruit sweetener. Two Tbsp psyllium powder for the best results – firm and slices easily. Tried one without psyllium (I ran out) but it didn’t hold together as well. I wrap the loaf in a lint-free cotton towel and freeze. You don’t need a food processor. I beat the egg whites, move them to a separate bowl, then use the mixing bowl for dry ingredients and proceed. Seems to work just fine and with less cleanup. My favorite way to eat this is to toast it. Delicious, thank you!


This recipe has its roots in Puerto Rican cuisine and, with only a few ingredients, is a cheap yet filling meal. Steak and onions is a true favorite with most meat lovers and with the seasoning on this meat the whole dish is bound to be delicious. For a slightly sweeter taste, try using red onions instead of white. This is a lovely filling dish to serve for lunch on a chilly day.

My bread came out a teeny bit “eggy”…which wasn’t bad, I still enjoyed it. Maybe some egg yolk made it in the batter??? Anyway, the slight egginess made me think of French toast. So with the last few pieces, that’s what I made. I mixed an egg, heavy cream, and a little vanilla to coat the bread…used browned butter to sub for syrup…then topped off with Swerve confectioners sugar. It was delicious!

I went to buy Xanthan gum at a store in my little town and it was like $17! I wasn’t paying that much, so I made it without but I will be ordering some online. I followed your directions exactly (minus Xanthan) and used Swerve for the sweetener. I couldn’t wait for it to cool so I had a piece right after it came out of the oven, it was delicious! I find it a tad sweet for bread, but that’s ok I’ll just cut back on the sweetener if I want to eat it for a sandwich..all sweeteners are a little different. It had a beautiful crust on it and was a tiny bit crumbly, almost reminds me more of muffin texture, I’m thinking maybe the Xanthan will give it more of a chewy bread texture?
Tried this… texture is great… only issue is that we couldn’t find unflavored whey protein!! locally, so we just grabbed some vanilla… definitely affects the taste (more like a pound cake… didn’t rise that much (I did use my bread-maker), but going to change out the whey protein as soon as unflavored comes in and think I will add a pack of yeast and just a bit of sugar to see if that makes it rise better.
Hi Maya, I’m new to your website and I’m anxious to try out this bread recipe. I’m helping my 27 year old son lose some weight. He’s on some pretty potent medication that has caused him to crave carbs thus putting on quite a bit of weight over the past few years. Since I’m his caregiver and also a Certified Nutritionist, I’m looking for some healthy alternatives to make his transition a bit easier and he loves bread.

This bread was very good. I have made many keto breads over the past 18 months and I liked the taste, texture and crumb of this one. I did include one big change in making it, though. I always keep powdered egg whites in the pantry to reduce having to find uses for dozens of yolks not utilized in keto recipes. I used a half cup of powdered whites, 1 tsp cream of tartar and 3/4 cup of warm water in my stand mixer. Beat at low speed until all the lumps are dissolved and then at high speed for 6 to 8 minutes. This produced a large bowl full of very stiff whites perfect for standing up to folding into a stiff batter. I buy the powdered eggs online for about $15. A one pound package is the equivalent of 90 non-GMO, USDA certified, USA raised eggs and always on hand. I have found over the years that these are less expensive than fresh eggs with no waste from unused yolks. They are great for meringues, puddings, cakes, etc and can be stirred into batters without reconstituting – and no separating eggs or worrying about errant yolk in the whites. My bread also cooked quicker. I placed it in a preheated 325F oven and it was light brown at 37 minutes. I tented it and 18 minutes later the interior temp was 206F. It was great toasted for breakfast the next morning and I am looking forward to French toast this week, too. Thanks for the recipe!

Is dry mouth a sign of ketosis


Ketogenic diet bread is not low calorie – swapping gluten out for almond flour and whey isolate adds a lot of calories. If you are watching your caloric intake, always consult with a doctor about a keto diet. This bread is in no way meant to be a lower calorie option – but merely a different way to get a light, bread texture without using gluten or grains.


Sardines are a really good source of fish oils, vitamins and minerals and can be bought very cheaply, so a quick keto salad like this would be perfect for people on a budget or for students. The sardines are packed with flavor and require no cooking so even novice cooks can manage this for lunch or dinner. The cider vinegar offsets the oiliness of the fish giving the salad a lovely freshness.
You’d never have thought that Chinese cuisine would naturally produce delicious Keto burgers, but there it is! This has been one of my favorite dishes growing up in a Chinese household, and I’m really excited to finally share it with you. This eggplant burger recipe sticks pretty closely to the traditional Chinese recipe (often called Qiezi He or Qie He).

Hi Barbara, I haven’t tried making this recipe into a lemon blueberry bread, but what you’d want to do is add a bit more sweetener (a few tablespoons? depending on how sweet you want it), lemon zest (not lemon juice to avoid too much liquid), and fold in blueberries carefully to avoid breaking down the whites. As for the other recipe you tried, it shouldn’t be gritty (though this one you’re looking at is definitely more fluffy) – did you use a super finely ground blanched almond flour?

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!

Thank you for the terrific recipe. I must admit that this really turned out to be “oopsie bread” for me. Due to the expensive nature of the recipe (organic eggs, almond flour, grass fed butter) I really attempted to follow the recipe perfectly instead of going with my usual improvisational style. I also do not have a food processor however that did not impede anything… a hand mixer and a deft hand did the trick. I did add the optional xanthum gum and erythritol but not the cream of tartar. The batter filled my silicone loaf pan to the top, I smoothed it out and popped it into the oven. Then, to my horror, I saw the little pot of melted butter still on the stovetop. There was nothing to be done except cross my fingers and hope for the best.

When I was growing up my favorite dessert was my moms’ zebra brownies.

Stir fries and sautees are so quick to make that they are the best meals when you are short of time for cooking. This one only takes five minutes and is filling and delicious. This is a combination of ground beef and vegetables flavored with garlic and oregano, but you could use whatever ground meat you have; turkey works really well here. This is a low carb meal suitable for the keto diet.
So I was really excited to make this bread. Went and bought all the supplies. The bread didn’t come out good at all. The outside looked good but when I sliced it the center was still moist. So I put it back in the oven with the tented foil probably for another 30 to 45 and still most. I’m def bummed that I waisted a whole carton of eggs. Is there something I could’ve done wrong?

For Keto, this bread is awesome! I have made it a few times, once with almond meal instead of blanched almond flour.. came out equally as good, just gives the look of a wheat bread. I slice it up once cool, and leave it on the counter for a few days. Then whatever is left goes into the fridge where it lasts for at least a week (if it actually lasts that long.) I like having bread around when doing Keto.. it helps with ease of a last-minute meal. Think Turkey sandwich, avocado toast, egg or chicken salad sandwich! Thank you!


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).
