Quick Keto Bread Recipe

I like to make this Quick Keto Bread for myself as a healthy breakfast or lunch option, since I know eating gluten-based foods isn't the best thing for my gut or waist-line. We do still eat a lot of gluten around here, but I like to have tasty alternatives available so I'm not always eating it.

This bread is my take on the 90-second keto bread recipe you might have seen doing the rounds. It's low-carb, gluten-free and pretty darn tasty.

Simply mix all the ingredients together and cook in the microwave for the quickest option possible, or take it one step further and fry your microwaved bread in butter to create a satisfyingly crispy crunch on the outside.

I buy carton egg-whites especially to make this recipe, because I don't like the eggy taste you get with using a whole egg and I find it tedious to separate eggs. However, use whatever you have on hand.

Serves: One
Preparation and cooking time: 8 minutes

  • 3 Tbsp almond meal / ground almonds
  • 3 Tbsp ground flaxseed (if you don't have flaxseed, simply double the almond meal)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 Tbsp egg white (from a carton), or two egg whites, or one whole egg
  • 1 Tbsp unflavoured softened coconut oil
  • Sprinkle of dried oregano, optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Stir together all the ingredients in a bread-sized square or rectangular microwave-safe glass container. (I prefer to use a rectangular container that is about the size of two pieces of bread sitting side-by-side. It results in two thinner slices of bread, when sliced down the middle. Using a square bread-sized container results in a fatter, single piece of bread.)
  2. Smooth the mixture in the container as much as possible.
  3. Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Meanwhile, preheat a frying pan if you're going to fry the bread.
  4. Carefully remove bread from glass container with a spatula. You can eat it as is, but I prefer to do the next step.
  5. Fry the bread on a medium heat in a nob of butter for a couple of minutes on each side to crisp it up.
  6. Plate and serve with your favourite toast or sandwich toppings. You can see I favour basil pesto and fresh tomatoes from my garden when I have them, but I've also eaten this bread as a hamburger bun, eaten it with smoked salmon and cream cheese, and eaten it with fried eggs on top. I simply fried the eggs right alongside the bread.
