Y'all, I am sooooo happy to be bringing this recipe to you!

Just like most of you, going keto can be rough when it comes to cravings. I missed the pasta, potatoes, and rice, all of those carby things that we grew up eating.

But most of all I missed bread! 

I was the PB&J girl, the grilled cheese sandwich girl, the french toast on the weekends girl. Bread was such a huge part of my life pre-keto. But I actually did pretty good with those cravings for a couple of years after I started the low carb lifestyle.

Then I got sick last February and cooking became something that was so hard for me. I had to rely on the Mr. to do most of it, or eat things that were easy to grab and make. So bread snuck back into my diet. A quick sandwich was easy to throw together for lunch.

But man, the carbs added up so fast doing that. I mean there are 13 grams of carbs in just one slice of regular white bread. Make a sandwich and you are packing in 26 grams of carbs before you even put anything between those slices! 

Most people try to stay below 30 net carbs for the day so you have blown that in just one meal!!

No thanks!

But, with me trying to get back on track, yet craving bread like crazy, I hit the interwebs to try to figure out what I could make that with feed those cravings without blowing my carb count out of the water. I had already tried just about every store-bought "keto" bread with very little luck. I didn't mind the Sola bread I found and still use it from time to time, but it is super pricey and still kinda left me wanting more. It is good in a pinch, but just not 100% what I was craving. 

That is when I found Diedre's low carb bread on YouTube. I was shocked by how amazing the bread looked in the video. 

I quickly purchased all of the ingredients,  including a bread machine, and got to baking! 

After giving her recipe a try, I checked out a few more low carb bread recipes I found. Most just had minor tweaks here and there, some used baking powder, some used lupin flour, some used psyllium husk powder. 

I eventually settled on this version as I feel it has the best look, texture, and taste. I now make this bread every single week! Even my non-keto son had no clue it was keto!!

FAQS ABOUT THE BEST KETO BREAD


Can I have honey on the keto diet? Normally the answer would be no. Honey is a "healthier" alternative to sugar but is high in calories and carbs, so not keto-approved. However, in this recipe, the amount is extremely small and the yeast used to allow the bread to rise actually "eats" the honey so the carbs are consumed by the yeast. The honey in this recipe will not spike blood sugar or kick you out of ketosis.

What is vital wheat gluten? Vital wheat gluten is like a superhero when it comes to low carb baking. It a "flour" that is all gluten and very little starch. It’s not technically flour itself, but it’s made from wheat flour that has been hydrated to activate the gluten and then processed to remove everything but that gluten. It’s then dried and ground back into a powder. It helps to improve the elasticity and rise of the raw dough and the crumb and chewiness of the finished bread.

Can I eat vital wheat gluten on the keto diet? Yes, vital wheat gluten is low in carbs and high in protein it is considered to be keto-friendly. It does not spike blood sugar. However, if you are gluten-free it will not work for you. I am gluten sensitive and can consume it though.

Is oat fiber keto-friendly? Yes, it is, however many people confuse oat fiber with oat flour. Oat flour is not keto-friendly, while oat fiber is. Although, you need to be careful when choosing the oat fiber you use. Many are actually pretty high in carbs. The brand I listed contains zero net carbs.

Is this keto bread really keto-friendly? It depends on what type of keto diet you are on. If you are strict keto I would say probably not. Strict keto avoids all wheat, sugars, etc. If you are on a lazy or dirty keto diet, this bread is perfectly acceptable.

Last thoughts about The BEST Keto Bread


I gotta say, this bread recipe has been a game-changer for me!

Don't get me wrong, I love a good lettuce wrap or "un-wich" like the next keto person. But, when I am really craving a true sandwich, I can now indulge without dealing with the dense caky texture of some homemade keto bread, or the cardboard flavor that most store-bought keto bread offers.

This bread is soft and springy like you would expect bread to be, with a mild flavor that actually allows the flavors of your sandwich ingredients to shine. 

I cut my slices super thin so I can actually get quite a few sandwiches out of one loaf. That also means the carbs are even less per slice. 

I purchased this bread slicer to help me make even thin cuts because I am a bit wild with my cutting skills at times 😂
