The two major issues that will lead to a flat loaf is not whipping the egg whites and gently folding them in OR using almond meal instead of a finely ground almond flour. If you’ve tried everything and they don’t seem to be working for you, the next best option will be to make a larger recipe. Try making 1.5x this recipe (it’s easy to do using the servings slide bar) and you’ll have a much larger loaf.

However, if you would rather have something a little more cheesy instead, then use the ingredients for the Extra Cheesy keto breadsticks instead. Not only will you get the health benefits of the extra cheese, but you will also give your body a good dose of allicin — a plant compound that is found in garlic powder and onion powder. Studies have found that allicin can helps decrease the risk of heart disease and boost brain healing from traumatic injury.
You’ve heard of green tea ice cream, but have you heard of avocado coconut ice cream?! It’s a healthy source of fats and great for curbing those sugar cravings. The toasted coconut flakes nicely compliment the smooth flavor of avocado. This ice cream is great for a girl’s night or to snack on during a Netflix binge. There is quite a bit of prep time involved, and an ice cream maker is required. You can substitute Allulose for another preferred sugar substitute. Yields 8 servings of ...

I found your recipes and was eager to try them! This morning I made the almond and coconut flour bread, blueberry muffin and the pancakes for family breakfast. They were all delicious!! I was amazed at how moist they were. However, even thought the bread was light, it did not achieve the height shown with the recipe. I need advice on how to achieve a higher loaf. My family was delighted at the healthier version of our Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you, Maya, for the time and effort spent in perfecting and sharing your recipes.
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!
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!

Made this today using my muffin top baking pan. It is perfect for sandwiches and I don’t have to cut them. That is good because my slicing ability is bad. So one batch makes 2 muffin tops. First batch emptied my coconut supply so I did another batch with double almond flour. Found that the almond flour by itself makes for a good sandwich. The batch with coconut and almond flour is sweeter, reminds me a bit of french toast, still good but not what I would like to have for a roast beef sandwich. Think it will be good with some almond butter on it.

Do Blue Zones eat eggs


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!
Eating Keto gives us plenty of opportunities to get our daily dose of meat, but sometimes I get a huge craving for a plate of vegetables! Not only are they healthy and full of vitamins, but a meatless main course can be a great way to change up your Keto meal routine. That's why I've put together a list of 32 Keto-friendly meatless recipes, with delicious options to get your veggies in for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Finally made this recipe, is my second bread recipe I’ve made and the top is nice but the inside always feels moist … I am putting it in the oven a bit more to see if it dries out, is that the texture that it should have because of the butter or what? I liked the flavor! Just not sure of how is supposed to be inside. I haven’t watched the video yet. Thanks!!

Can losing weight increase chances of pregnancy


Nice and firm. Baked it on the recommended temp, added 6 or 7 minutes. Pressed the middle and it was great. I let it cool. What was nice about it was obviously it’s low carb bread…hurray for that, but it cut well. Got 18 slices easily about 1/2 inch thick without breakage. Most importantly, it wasn’t greasy, or almond tasting overload, just delicious.

The most common reason that any bread falls is that it needed to bake for longer. That being said, I’ll be perfectly honest – sometimes this keto bread recipe falls anyway, even despite doing everything else right. Fortunately this isn’t a huge deal because it still tastes delicious – IF you baked it for long enough and the center is cooked through.

How many eggs can I eat a day to lose weight


Hi Kaylee, I’ve substituted raw sunflower seeds ground dry in my bullet for almonds. I found it to taste better. Expect the color to be similar to the color of the seeds. I sub 113g sunflower seeds for every 1 cup of almond flour. As for eggs, shop around. I get pastured eggs for berween $4 to $6.50. Usually, on sale. Like this week, sprouts has buy 1get one free so that’s 2 dozens for $6.50. Even Publix to my surprise will mark down their pastture raised eggs to $3.50/dozen.

Where can I get growth hormone


Hi Mindy, That sounds very odd. The salted butter is probably why it was too salty, but I think one of your ingredients must have gone bad, because the bread shouldn’t have a bitter or sour taste at all. Or did you use baking soda instead of baking powder? That would taste both bitter and sour, so that could be it. It needs to be baking powder, not baking soda. Hope you’ll try again!
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?

I just made this bread and it’s lovely but when I work out the ingredients I used it works out a far greater fat content that yours. I used ground almonds as that is what we use for almond flour in the uk, I don’t know if that makes a difference. Per serving (half the recipe) this is what I get: cal 240, fat 21.3g, net carb 2.2g, protein 9.4g. Any idea why mine is so much more?
Theresa, Thanks so much for your comment! We aren’t sure what you mean though; our recipe above calls for 2 cups (224g) of almond flour, which is the same measurement you mentioned from the brand you use (112g per 1 cup X 2 cups = 224g). It may be helpful to reach out to a particular almond flour manufacturer if you have a product-specific question. We hope this helps and happy keto baking!

How do you starve without being hungry


Hello!! Went grain free about two months ago to reverse a chronic illness. Am feeling great but was jonesing for a piece of bread!! Big time!! And that’s what you gave me! I wish I could share the photos I have of this loaf which baked up beautifully!! It is light and airy and tastes mild and yummy. Interestingly, when I toasted it up, a hint of coconut came out (obviously from the coconut flour). Thank you so much for sharing this… sandwich here I come!!
The somewhat sweet roasted pumpkin combined with salty cheese is an amazing experience. This salad is somewhat higher in carbs than we would normally post, so keep in mind that it’s better for those of you who are eating within a shorter time period each day. You can lessen the carbs by reducing the amount of pumpkin used and replace it with a lower-carb vegetable like cauliflower or zucchini. Every time we post a recipe with halloumi, we get a lot of questions about it. Look, halloumi is ...

How do you prepare rhubarb for baking


This recipe provides a fun spin on chia pudding. Instead of it just being one flavor, we’re layering several to create a Neapolitan style dessert. First, we create the base chia seed pudding recipe.  Then we divide it up into three bowls and create the vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors.  If you want to dress this up like the pictures, then layer some thinly sliced strawberries inside.  You can top with whipped cream and garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder too.  We also added ...

Can I eat an apple on a low carb diet


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!
Hey Maya!! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried off your website and again I love it!! Turned out really well. I can have sandwiches again or a quick piece Of toast when I’m in a hurry to get out the door. I was skeptical about the xanthan gum since I tried a recipe using psyllium husk powder. I did not like it. I can’t taste the xanthan gum so I have no problem using it going forward. Thanks again for the recipe!!!

How do you prepare rhubarb for baking


This recently published cookbook is penned by Jennifer Marie Garza, who dealt with yo-yo dieting throughout her life until she discovered keto. She wanted to share her positive experience (and her love of recipe building) with others, so she even started a blog and a couple of crazy successful Facebook groups where fans flock for her delicious recipes and to cheer each other on. Given her keto journey thus far, a keto cookbook seems like a totally fitting next endeavor.

Is Bacon bad for diabetics


Thank you so much for your recipe. This is the best keto bread recipe I have come across. There is only one suggestion it’s better to use medium size 8X4 inch pan to get perfect size slices. There is one question., can we replace coconut flour with almond flour completely? If yes what is the quantity for almond flour in this case? Thank you once again.
As I'm sure you know, eating chocolate bars and lollipops aren't exactly conducive to keeping in ketosis. But you can still enjoy treats on a Keto diet...like these amazing Keto peppermint cups. The delicious filling uses a mixture of coconut butter and coconut oil flavored with peppermint extract and stevia. But, be careful, peppermint tends to be pretty strong, so a little goes a long way.

EXCELLENT plain ole white bread. Perfect for sandwiches, toast, french toast, grilled cheese. I’m really enjoying it. Your instructions and additional comments were spot on. I did add half of the recommended sweetener, I used Swerve, but omitted the xanthan gum and cream of tartar. Perfect consistency and taste. Trying the lemon, blueberry, zucchini bread in the next couple of days. Also will look through your recipes for a good keto seeded bread loaf. Can’t wait!

Can I eat an apple on a low carb diet


On the top of the benefits of protein, the flaxseeds in this keto bread recipe have many health benefits as well. For example, they contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid that has been proven to possess heart health benefits and decrease the risk of stroke. Flaxseeds are also one of the most abundant sources of plant compounds called lignans. Lignans have been found to reduce the risk of cancers like breast cancer and prostate cancer.
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!
Hi, I’ve made this recipe twice and LOVE the taste. However, both times the bread would rise so high in the oven, but as soon as I take it out to cool it deflated and middle sink down. What could’ve gone wrong? Over mixing? I did switch coconut flour to all almond flour instead. Could that be a problem? Please help as I’m anxious to make another batch. Thank you.

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.
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


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.
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!

intermittent fasting


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!!

This was so yummy! Great for sandwiches. I’m a total amateur when it comes to baking and I was so sure I’d messed this up. The instructions seem a little intimidating- I usually avoid all recipes that even involve separating eggs. I don’t have a hand mixer so used my immersion blender in too wide/flat of a bowl for fluffing the eggs, so they didn’t get thoroughly “fluffed.” But despite that, the consistency of the bread was great. It was just shorter than I’d have expected. So happy I tried this! Great instructions and tips.
