Learn how to prepare a low-carb bread ideal for your ketogenic diet
Eating bread often rhymes with consuming carbohydrates . You will find many tips for preparing your keto bread and a low-carb bread recipe with almond flour at the end of the article !
What is the difference between a keto bread and a standard bread?
Ketogenic bread is a mixture of almond flour( or coconut flour), eggs, healthy fats and xanthan gum. The texture is the same as that of a bread you will find at the baker, but it contains about 20 times less carbohydrates than in normal times.
Ketogenic bread can be lactose-free: replace the butter with 1/2 cup of olive oil.
Easy tips before starting the preparation of a keto bread
Mix butter and coconut oil
If your butter was in the fridge, take it out in advance or warm it without melting. Add coconut oil once the butter is soft, then add the eggs, mixing at low speed.
What kind of butter to use ?
You can use any kind of butter, but pasture butter is best. We will soon write an article about butters to give you more details.
Mix the almond flour with xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Then very gradually add this mixture to the previous mixture.

- From guar gum-use a teaspoon
- From chia seeds - use a tablespoon
- Nothing - the result will be good, but a little more crumbly
