Hi Howard, You’re right that this bread doesn’t rise much – the volume comes mostly from whipping the egg whites. If the whites fell too much, the bread might not be tall enough. But even if they didn’t, it might still be shorter than some other tall bread loaves. Feel free to multiply the recipe by 1.5 if you prefer a taller loaf. I’m glad you liked the flavor and texture!

Made this today using my muffin top baking pan. It is perfect for sandwiches and I don’t have to cut them. That is good because my slicing ability is bad. So one batch makes 2 muffin tops. First batch emptied my coconut supply so I did another batch with double almond flour. Found that the almond flour by itself makes for a good sandwich. The batch with coconut and almond flour is sweeter, reminds me a bit of french toast, still good but not what I would like to have for a roast beef sandwich. Think it will be good with some almond butter on it.
Hi Amber, Yes, the baking powder and egg whites do help it rise a bit, just not as much as regular bread. It’s hard to say what went wrong, if anything. Everyone’s palate is a little different, so it’s possible you just didn’t like it, or maybe something didn’t go as it should have. It could be that the batter and whites weren’t folded together quite enough?

Is lemon good for uric acid


I made it tonight and use a mini loaf pan. It came out delicious. I used the http://www.tasteofhome.com/article/how-to-cut-down-recipes/ link to adjust the recipe measurements using the one third column. I used 2 egg whites. The slices will be small but it was delicious with melted butter. Keto bread recipes and I have tried quite a few have not turned out well for me. I do not like to waste expensive ingredients that is why I will usually do a small amount first. This recipe has been the exception. It is good simple and delicious. I will make it again using the recipe as written. Note: I whipped the egg whites for 10 minutes to get the right consistency. I hope this helps and thank You Maya for finally for me making a bread that tastes great and is easy to make.
However, if you would rather have something a little more cheesy instead, then use the ingredients for the Extra Cheesy keto breadsticks instead. Not only will you get the health benefits of the extra cheese, but you will also give your body a good dose of allicin — a plant compound that is found in garlic powder and onion powder. Studies have found that allicin can helps decrease the risk of heart disease and boost brain healing from traumatic injury.

What foods contain D Ribose


These chicken fingers are quite easy to make and would be ideal for a weekend lunch. With all the Asian-inspired spices used here, this would even make a lovely appetizer at an Indian dinner party. The chicken fingers can be eaten with cutlery or without – finger foods for a kids’ lunch? Just team this with a paleo tomato sauce or mayonnaise and everyone will enjoy dipping these spiced treats!

How long does bone broth take to work


Hi Connie, I don’t recommend using whole eggs in this recipe. The two recipes are very different. The egg whites in this recipe are beaten to stiff peaks to create the fluffiness. You could fold the yolks in later, but you’d need to modify the other ingredients, and besides, the bread would turn out very egg-y. The other recipe has fewer eggs than this one, and they are added differently.
This is BY FAR the best Keto Bread recipe anywhere, I make this weekly, and today I tried the same recipe only adding 2T swerve and 2T Raisins (adding 14 grams of carbs to the loaf but well worth it!) to make an Irish Soda Bread and I swear you cannot tell a difference between it and traditional Irish Soda Bread. I am going to try this recipe adding some shredded cheddar next week for a cheese bread, thanks for this versatile keto bread recipe that doesn’t taste like eggs!

How much weight can you lose in three days


I’m notoriously pathetic in the kitchen. But since being on the Keto diet, learning how to try new recipes has become a necessity for me. I think the food I most miss has been bread; so I’ve tried several different recipes in the hope of finding one I actually like. Yours is the only one I can honestly say that I really love! I was sure I had messed up another recipe when I poured it into the bread pan. But it came out smelling fantastic and tasting even better. Thank you for sharing it. Keto on!!
Here is the perfect do-it-yourself lunch for a summertime family picnic! Just arrange the meat and vegetables on a plate and allow each family member to construct their own wraps according to their taste. This can be a good way to encourage youngsters and reluctant veggie-dodgers to try different textures and flavors as the crunchy vegetables are often preferred to cooked ones!
Vegetable wraps. Don’t throw out those leftover leafy greens, use them like a taco shell or wrap instead. Some vegetables that make good vegetable wraps are collard greens, butter lettuce, cabbage leaves, swiss chard, and Lacinato kale. These veggies will also provide you with one of the best ways to get more fiber, mineral, vitamins, and antioxidants into your keto diet. Some of our favorite vegetable wrapped recipes are Low Carb Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls, Spicy Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps, and Vegetarian Greek Collard Wraps. Feel free to use whatever leafy vegetables you’d like with these keto recipes.

Can I eat too much cheese on keto


I found your recipes and was eager to try them! This morning I made the almond and coconut flour bread, blueberry muffin and the pancakes for family breakfast. They were all delicious!! I was amazed at how moist they were. However, even thought the bread was light, it did not achieve the height shown with the recipe. I need advice on how to achieve a higher loaf. My family was delighted at the healthier version of our Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you, Maya, for the time and effort spent in perfecting and sharing your recipes.
Made this 2 times. The 2nd batch turned out much better and more delicious . I use coconut sugar in place of the sweetner listed. However, I am having trouble with the egg whites and the consistency pictured. My egg whites turn into a foamy meringue. I have made meringue before, and I knew it would stiffen up, and it did. Otherwise the rise was much better on the 2nd attempt and looked very much like the bread pictured. I seemed to fold in the mixture better 2nd time around. 1st time it looked like I had pockets of uncooked dough though the temp reading at 2 locations showed above 200 deg F. I blamed it on not folding the mixture with the eggs well enough.

Can dogs eat bananas


I made 2 loaves, but put them into the oven at the same time. This made the first loaf rested for 30 minutes. It raised up above the pan.! I used the xanthan gum and the cream of tartar. The second one did not rise as it did not sit. I baked the tall one for 43 minutes while the lower one was only 35 minutes. We LOVE IT! Tastes just like regular bread.

I followed the recipe to a tee, used all recommended ingredients. I’ve attempted making it twice, the first time I didn’t have a food processor and that was a complete fail. The second time, today, I bought a food processor and attempted it again. The egg whites were fluffy but never got to stiff peaks… maybe my eggs were too cold? Anyway, I baked for 30 mins, and it wasn’t even golden brown on the top so I didn’t put the foil on time and cooked it another 20 mins. I just pulled it out about 20 mins ago and it is golden brown. However, it is a very moist almost like a banana bread texture. I just popped it back in the oven hoping it will “dry up”. Any recommendations? Do I need to cook for and hour ? 

How many calories should a woman with PCOS eat


This recipe uses cauliflower to stretch the lobster without losing the wonderful flavor. It’s so delicious you can eat it straight out of the bowl or wrapped in romaine lettuce. We highly suggest using mayo made from olive, coconut, or avocado oil instead of ones made using sunflower or canola oil. Keep a jar of this healthy avocado mayo in your fridge to make quick and easy keto recipes.
Hi Kristi, I’m glad you liked the taste! Sorry it didn’t rise for you. It’s hard to say what happened without being in the kitchen with you. Were the peaks in the egg whites not firm enough, or did they fall too much when folding with the rest of the batter? That is the main culprit I can think of, as the egg whites are a big part of what creates the volume in this bread.

What is L Arginine used for


Hi Danielle, The bread will not rise without the baking powder, but you could try it if you don’t mind that. Some people make homemade baking powder with baking soda, cream of tartar, and arrowroot powder. But, arrowroot is still a very small amount of starch. Divided among the slices, it’s actually fewer carbs than some of the other ingredients (e.g. almond flour has a small amount of carbs also).
Egg-based wraps. These take a bit of preparation, but they are absolutely delicious with the right ingredients. My favorite egg-based wrap recipes are the Ultimate Breakfast Roll Ups and the Spinach, Herb & Feta Wrap. Both of them come packed with unique flavors and keto-friendly ingredients that make for the perfect high-protein, high-fat breakfast.
I so miss bread fresh from the oven (I’m going to be adding the yeast)! You are absolutely correct about beaten egg whites creating air pockets. My family has always made buttermilk pancakes from scratch and we always separate the eggs, beat the whites to soft peaks and fold them in at the last minute. The pancakes rise beautifully! Have you tried this with your keto pancakes?

Does diet soda cause insulin spike


Well my Bread wasn’t tall enough for say sandwich stuff, and I am not sure if I did anything wrong, I know I used the wrong sized bread pan so that is one thing. However, I couldn’t believe how great it tasted, it was more like a moist custard shortbread. The texture and color were perfect. I cut some thick slices and buttered both sides cooked them in a pan. I spread some sugar-free preserves on top, wow is that good. I may not have made it as intended but I can’t complain. The flavor is amazing.

Can you feel when you are in ketosis


The two major issues that will lead to a flat loaf is not whipping the egg whites and gently folding them in OR using almond meal instead of a finely ground almond flour. If you’ve tried everything and they don’t seem to be working for you, the next best option will be to make a larger recipe. Try making 1.5x this recipe (it’s easy to do using the servings slide bar) and you’ll have a much larger loaf.

Is dark chocolate anti inflammatory


I have a question I hope you can set me straight. I was putting the almond flour in my dry measuring cup and it didn’t seem right. I checked around the internet and found someone who said always weigh almond flour. So, I did. 8oz. = 1 cup so 8oz almond flour. It looks like enough but so much more than one dry measure cup. I got as far as doing the food processor part and realized I needed more eggs. So, I’m kinda in holding until I go to the store so, I thought I’d ask.. have I made a terrible mistake and wasted a lot of supplies or am I cool?

Does black coffee interfere with autophagy


Stir fries and sautees are so quick to make that they are the best meals when you are short of time for cooking. This one only takes five minutes and is filling and delicious. This is a combination of ground beef and vegetables flavored with garlic and oregano, but you could use whatever ground meat you have; turkey works really well here. This is a low carb meal suitable for the keto diet.

Can I eat olives on keto


To Make Sure You Get the Best Rise: Make sure your baking powder and yeast are fresh. Let your egg whites come to room temperature before using. Cook for the recommended amount of time (and make sure your oven is properly calibrated). Measure all ingredients carefully (we recommend weighing the dry ingredients). Try to avoid the temptation to slice it while it's hot because this can cause the loaf to fall. 

What bread is good for diabetics


I’m sure some of you grew up eating Swedish meatballs, but many of us associate this recipe with shopping at Ikea and that’s perfectly fine too. Flavor packed keto Swedish meatballs are served in creamy beef gravy. We kept the carbs low by skipping the breadcrumbs and using xanthan gum as a thickener. For even more flavor you could try doing this recipe with a 50/50 mixture of ground beef and ground pork. This recipe could also be great for meal prep if you do a little planning ahead. ... 

What is the best exercise for thyroid


Note that the U.S. Department of Agriculture advises against cooking frozen chicken in a slow cooker or crock pot because slow cookers cook at a low temperature and may not heat chicken up to 165F, which is the minimum temperature to destroy any dangerous bacteria and ensure that chicken is fully cooked. So if you’re using a crock pot or slow cooker to make Crack Chicken, make sure to defrost it first!
Hey Maya!! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried off your website and again I love it!! Turned out really well. I can have sandwiches again or a quick piece Of toast when I’m in a hurry to get out the door. I was skeptical about the xanthan gum since I tried a recipe using psyllium husk powder. I did not like it. I can’t taste the xanthan gum so I have no problem using it going forward. Thanks again for the recipe!!!

Is the Air Fryer good for keto diet


Maya, I can’t tell you how excited I am to find this recipe! I have three young cats who are on a raw diet. In my previous life I was a home economics major and was taught not to waste anything. So from making their raw food I have the byproducts of egg whites and chicken bones and skin. It all gets frozen for future use. I use the bones and skin to make my own bone broth but I have egg whites out the ying yang! They are frozen in jars with the measurement of the contents on the lid. Now I’m going to thaw some and make bread! Have you tried making french toast with this?
My bread came out a teeny bit “eggy”…which wasn’t bad, I still enjoyed it. Maybe some egg yolk made it in the batter??? Anyway, the slight egginess made me think of French toast. So with the last few pieces, that’s what I made. I mixed an egg, heavy cream, and a little vanilla to coat the bread…used browned butter to sub for syrup…then topped off with Swerve confectioners sugar. It was delicious!

Is Halo ice cream Keto


My lady and I have been on the Keto diet for a little while now, and always on the lookout for new recipes. I came across this recipe because I knew I wanted to use pork rinds, but wanted to see what others had come up with. We just finished eating dinner (drumsticks and thighs with skin on) and used hot and spicy pork rinds. We both couldn’t stop raving about how good these were! I have never written a review on a recipe online before this, but I felt I had to let you know how amazing this was!

Hi Ashley, Usually egg whites take just a few minutes to beat to stiff peaks. Definitely not 40 minutes. Old eggs can sometimes be the culprit, or a bit of leftover fat/grease from something else in the bowl can prevent stiff peaks (this is especially common when using a plastic bowl). Lastly, it could be that your mixer isn’t powerful enough to beat that many whites to stiff peaks, but this reason is a last resort and probably less likely. Cream of tartar is a huge help in reaching stiff peaks so you can try adding that next time.
