One of the things I miss most on the keto program is the loss of bread. I am not a huge fan of bread – in fact most of the time when we would buy it, it would go bad before we could eat a full loaf. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it occasionally. One of my absolute favorite meals is a hamburger on bread – not a bun. I am determined to recreate something like that.
This bread recipe definitely calms down the craving for bread. It is a bit more dense than a normal slice of bread but to me that works because it is also that much more filling.
This bread cooks up nicely and relatively quickly. It even slides out of the loaf pan very easily.
I also love that it doesn’t have a ton of ingredients and those that it does have are pretty typical to have in your pantry when following keto.
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 6 large eggs separated
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 pinch of himalayan sea salt
- 10 drops liquid stevia (or more if you’d like)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Separate your eggs – egg whites in one container and yolks in another. I use all 6 egg whites but only 4 yolks to try to cut down on the egg taste. If you need an easy way to separate the whites from the yolks check this out… It works – easy as can be.
In a bowl mix the egg whites with the cream of tartar and blend until soft peaks form. Then remove 2/3 of that mixture. With the 1/3 – add butter, egg yolks, almond flour, baking powder, salt and stevia and blend.
Once you do that add the remaining 2/3 of the egg white mixture and mix gently just until it is fully mixed in.
Pour into a loaf pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean – approximately 25 minutes.
