Keto Protein Bread – Low Carb Recipe

This is another delicious option of ketogenic bread based on nuts. Try it and accompany it with butter. You can prepare it early for your breakfast and keep it in a dry place for up to three days.

Traditional bread cannot be eaten on a low-carb because of the enriched wheat or white flour that it contains. It’s often the first thing that people who go on a low-carb diet remove from their diet and they often miss it the most!

But our keto baguette bread recipe is one that you can safely enjoy on any diet! In place of white or wheat flour (which contains gluten), we use almond flour, coconut flour, and protein powder as our base. 

Almond flour and coconut flour go together like peanut butter and jelly. Together, they create a dense yet light and filling base for any baked recipe.

Plus, both flours are high in good fats and fiber. They are also very low in carbs. To sweeten the bread, we use organic apple cider vinegar, which contains antibacterial properties to help boost your immune system and detox your body.

Make sure you use unfiltered and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar that contains the “mother” in it. These enzymes and nutrients are killed off during the heating process, which means you’ll want a product that is minimally processed. 

We recommend using a keto-friendly protein powder to complement your keto diet. Look for grass-fed collagen peptides, which helps support joint health as well as hair, skin and nails.

You’ll need three egg whites and one egg yolk for this recipe. Make sure your eggs come from organic and pasture-raised sources of hens, which contain larger amounts of important nutrients such as omega 3 fatty acids, select antioxidants and precursors to vitamins.

How To

Start by making the base for the bread. Heat the water and add the yeast and vinegar. Let the yeast sit in the water for about 15 minutes until it’s fully dissolved.
