This keto sandwich bread is perfect to replace your lunch sandwiches with, or meal-prep ahead of time to set yourself up for healthy meals. This sandwich bread recipe is also suitable for a paleo diet. This bread is free of gluten and dairy.
I used to make this bread as a 90-second keto bread, which is made in the microwave. But recently I don’t use nor own a microwave anymore. So I made this larger keto bread, that is just as easy and delicious and work as a great substitute for wheat bread, and can be prepared in the oven.
One sandwich has only 6 grams of net carbs.
The ingredients for this keto sandwich bread
Almond flour: Almond flour is the base for this recipe. You can’t substitute with coconut flour. I tried and it failed. Choose a fine, ground, blanched almond flour.
Baking powder: go for a gluten-free baking powder. Make sure to add it, this helps the bread to rise and gives it a nice consistency.
Eggs: In this recipe, you’ll need 3 whole eggs (3 yolks, 3 egg white) and 1 egg white.
Salt: Sea salt or Himalayan salt is recommended.
MCT oil: MCT oil is made from coconuts and works great as a healthy fat to cook or bake with. If you don’t have MCT oil, you can substitute it with melted coconut oil.
