I have formulated the BEST all-purpose keto bread – soft on the inside, crusty on the outside. Finding low-carb alternatives to your favorite grain or startch-based foods can a lot of trial and error. Well, now I’ve taken the guess work out of the equation and am very happy to present this recipe.
This could be the ONLY bread replacement you need.
Listed as the first recipe in The Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking, this is the best all-purpose keto bread! From Cinnamon French Toast to grilled cheese, you can do anything with it. Use it for “breadcrumbs”, soaking up sauces and dipping into soups.
ONLY TWO CARBS per slice!
The satisfyingly bready combination of coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, egg and oil adds up to Macros Per Slice: 9.8 g fat, 7 g carb, 2 g net carb, 3.9 g protein
Psyllium husk powder?
Psyllium husk powder is the special ingredient essential for creating a light, spongy, wheat-bread like texture. Generally, recipes with psyllium husk have longer baking times but it is well worth the wait. This all-purpose keto bread is 100% satisfying, so far it has held up well against all tests (sandwiches, soaking up soups, French toast, grilled cheese…).
Use psyllium husk powder, not psyllium husk! The powder combines well in the bread dough and makes a smooth textured bread once baked. If you use the whole husk, it does not incorporate well into the dough and will leave grainy bits in your bread. These little bits get gritty after getting baked. Avoid the disappointment and be sure to use psyllium husk powder.
Shopping Suggestion: Finely Ground Psyllium Husk Powder
Our favorite Keto Bread Recipe | All purpose grain-free low-carb bread
This keto bread rises well thanks to the abundance of eggs. Little air bubbles burst open creating beautiful pockets, just like white bread! My favorite element of this keto bread is the crunchy outside that encases a soft flexible inside. The crust is a crisp shell, reminiscent of French bread. The loaf slices easily and has never gummed up on the knife.
Compared to other coconut flour loaves…
Speaking of French bread, I use my Grain-Free Coconut Flour Bread as a French Bread replacement. With different ratios of coconut flour to egg and the lack of psyllium, it does not rise at all. Simple to make, the directions walk you through the process of blending the batter, packing into a loaf pan and baking. Once you remove it from the oven, you have a nice dense loaf. It is much smaller in size and better suited for bruschetta, toasted garlic bread, and serving with pesto or olive tapanade as you would French bread.
The Grain-Free Coconut Flour Bread was my first successful keto bread recipe and I have used it often! It is very nice when you want just a little texture and extra bulk to a meal. In The Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking, I provide a number of fun flavor variations and ways to enhance it with herbal infused oils and medicinal spices.
