This delicious, made in a microwave, 90 second keto bread recipe is a perfect low carb and gluten-free bread for those who're following a keto diet. Toast it, fry it, make your favorite sandwiches with it!
I can’t say that I crave bread that often, but my partner does. So, I had to come up with some kind of quick-to-make keto microwave bread recipe to keep us on track with our diet. What can be easier than a low carb bread that you can make in 5 minutes using your microwave?
Ingredients and substitutions
Flour - A blend of almond flour and coconut flour will give this keto friendly bread a texture and taste close to your regular bread.
Psyllium husk powder - This powder acts as gluten in this recipe. It gives the bread more elasticity and also helps with the flavor profile.
Baking powder and apple cider vinegar - Our bread needs a little bit of help to lift and create all those lovely bubbles in the texture. To achieve that, we need baking powder (use a gluten-free one if needed) and apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar act as a "jump-start" for the baking powder to start the reaction and release carbon dioxide gas that will lift the bread fast.
Egg - We need one medium egg at room temperature to bind all the dry ingredients together.
Butter - Use unsalted butter.
Cream cheese - Cream cheese helps to remove the eggy flavor and improves texture. Use full-fat cream cheese.
Salt and sweetener - Salt is a must here, but you can skip sweetener if you like. Optionally you can add dried herbs or even a tablespoon of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or crushed nuts for extra crunch.
Step by step directions
We start by combining our dry ingredients - the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husk powder, keto-friendly sweetener of your choice, and a pinch of salt in a microwave-safe bowl.
In another small mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients - the cream cheese, melted unsalted butter, one egg at room temperature, and apple cider vinegar. Lastly, add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix together well with a small whisk or fork until fully combined and microwave for 1.5-2 minutes on high power (800w).
Carefully (it’s going to be super-hot) take the microwave-safe bowl or ramekin out from the microwave and let it cool down a little bit. Then, flip it upside down to take out our gluten-free easy keto bread and slice it in half.
Carbs in 90 second keto bread
This “recipe for one” will provide you with 2 slices of bread with only around 1.5g net carbs per slice. If you make this recipe in a ramekin, you might be able to cut it in 3 smaller round slices with only 1g net carbs per slice.
Made with a blend of almond flour and coconut flour, with a little bit of psyllium husk powder (dietary fiber), this bread is perfect for those who want to avoid or can’t tolerate gluten and who follow a low carb diet.
Yes, you can! Place it in a zip-lock bag, remove, as much air as possible, and freeze for up to 3 months.
