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.
I like to have a piece of toasted microwave keto bread for breakfast or with a bowl of HEALTHY KETO ZUPPA TOSCANA SOUP, KETO CAULIFLOWER SOUP, or this KETO EGG SALAD RECIPE WITH AVOCADO.
Also, you can use my easy low carb bread to make this KETO GRILLED CHEESE. Alternatively, make this DUTCH OVEN PULLED PORK RECIPE to create a flavorful sloppy joe style sandwich.
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.
