Are you transitioning to a low carb or keto diet but don’t think you can cut bread from your life? You’re not alone. Bread is virtually everywhere and it’s one of the hardest carbs to give up.

But whether you like multigrain, white, whole-wheat, rye, baguettes, ciabatta, brioche, naan or any other bread — we have the perfect keto bread substitution.

This Keto Almond Bread contains less than three grams of net carbs per slice while packing  healthy fats and key vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, riboflavin, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and iron. So what’s in this recipe that makes this almond bread low carb while being a perfectly satiating snack?

The main ingredients in this recipe are: 

  • Butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Almond flour
  • Eggs

Seems simple enough, right?

It is. Here’s why this bread is so good for you:

3 Health Benefits Of Almond Bread

#1: Packed With Healthy Fats

The butter and coconut oil in this recipe give your energy a boost by helping increase your ketones levels. They also provide the fat your cells need to function efficiently. Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, a type of saturated fatty acids that has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Plus, both these fats keep you satisfied.

#2: Rich In Micronutrients

Almond flour is significantly healthier than wheat flour.

When almonds are used for flour instead of wheat or grains, you’ll have a dose of healthy fats (56g per cup) plus minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium[*].

You’ll also get 24g of protein, 12g of dietary fiber, and only 12g of net carbs per cup too[*].

#3: Gives Your Brain A Boost

There are 7 eggs in this bread — which means a lot of choline. Choline is a vitamin-like essential nutrient that later turns into acetylcholine, an important brain neurotransmitter.

If you’ve been craving bread on keto, you can indulge with this recipe without any guilt or coming out of ketosis. Just add a tablespoon of butter on top for a comforting, satiating way to start the day.

  1. Great texture and taste- super easy to make. Error in the recipe- no mention of when and how to add the almond flour- but easy enough to guess.

  2. Really tasty as a BLT. I used a standard loaf pan, but the slices turned out very, very thin. If I can find a thinner loaf pan I will definitely make this again !
