Keto bread is a type of bread that is specifically designed for individuals following a ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that aims to put the body into a metabolic state called ketosis, where it primarily burns fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.
Traditional bread is usually high in carbohydrates due to the presence of wheat flour or other grain-based flours. To make keto bread, the recipe typically replaces these high-carb flours with low-carb alternatives such as almond flour, coconut flour, or flaxseed meal.
Here’s a basic recipe for keto bread:
- 2 cups almond flour
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 5 large eggs
- ¼ cup melted butter or coconut oil
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk (or any low-carb milk)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
