Health Benefits Of Keto Bread
Low Carb and Gluten-Free
This keto-friendly bread is not only low-carb, but it’s also gluten-free and paleo-friendly. While most bread options are guaranteed to kick you out of ketosis, the coconut flour and almond flour base of this keto bread make it a perfect choice when you’re craving bread but want to keep it low carb.
And, of course, no grains means no gluten. While some people seem to tolerate gluten, many people do better to avoid it altogether. There’s even evidence that gluten can can trigger symptoms like inflammation and gut issues in those with non-celiac gluten-sensitivity and gluten intolerance[*].
Each slice of your keto bread contains 10 grams of fiber. Fiber is crucial for gut health, and it helps to keep you full and satisfied. And with a variety of fiber sources (coconut flour, psyllium husk, and flax seeds), you’ll get a nice combination of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Getting enough fiber in your diet is essential to a healthy gut as it improves digestion and elimination and serves as fuel for the healthy bacteria in your GI tract[*].

How To Make Keto Bread
To begin, get your oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line the bottom of an 8×4 loaf pan with parchment paper. You may want to also grease the edges with non-stick spray or butter to be safe.
Next, add all dry ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine.
In a large bowl or electric mixer, add eggs, milk, and apple cider vinegar and whip on high for 1-2 minutes until light and frothy. Then slowly add in the dry ingredients mixing to combine, and then the melted butter. Stir well to combine.
Let the mixture sit for 1-2 minutes, then pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the top and edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when poked through the center of the loaf.
Finally, remove your bread from the oven and let it cool to room temperature before slicing.
