Traditional bread cannot be eaten on a low-carb because of the enriched wheat or white flour that it contains. It’s often the first thing that people who go on a low-carb diet remove from their diet and they often miss it the most!
Almond flour and coconut flour go together like peanut butter and jam. Together, they create a dense yet light and filling base for any baked recipe.
Plus, both flours are high in good fats and fiber. They are also very low in carbs. To sweeten the bread, we use organic apple cider vinegar, which contains antibacterial properties to help boost your immune system and detox your body.
Make sure you use unfiltered and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar that contains the “mother” in it. These enzymes and nutrients are killed off during the heating process, which means you’ll want a product that is minimally processed.
We recommend using a keto-friendly protein powder to complement your keto diet. Look for grass-fed collagen peptides, which helps support joint health as well as hair, skin and nails.
You’ll need three egg whites and one egg yolk for this recipe. Make sure your eggs come from organic and pasture-raised sources of hens, which contain larger amounts of important nutrients such as omega 3 fatty acids, select antioxidants and precursors to vitamins.
How to make the bread:
Start by making the base for the bread. Heat the water and add the yeast and vinegar. Let the yeast sit in the water for about 15 minutes until it’s fully dissolved.
In a separate bowl, mix together all the solid ingredients, including the coconut and almond flour, xanthan gum, and protein powder. Use your hands to create an opening in the middle of the mixture.
Use another bowl to mix egg whites, whole egg, and almond milk.
Little by little, add this mixture to the dry ingredients.
Use your hands to combine all the ingredients until the dough is no longer sticky.
Let the dough stand for 45 minutes. Then add it to a greased loaf pan and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 300 degrees.
Let it cool before serving
Prepare a low carb bread that doesn’t break the laws of a ketogenic diet. With a chewy interior and a crispy crust, this is a no fail recipe the whole family will love.
