90 Second Almond Flour Keto Bread
The easiest keto bread, made in 90 seconds in the microwave
Bread is one of the foods that people miss most on keto – at least I know I did – and a loaf of almond flour bread is a great alternative. But, for a lot of folks, it’s quite a task to make, because you have to separate eggs, and whisk the whites to stiff peaks and so on. So, for those folks on the go, or those without ovens and those simply without the time or inclination to cook, this 90-second keto bread made in the microwave is the perfect solution. It’s literally as simple as mixing a few ingredients in a mug and popping it in the microwave. And in less than two minutes you have a keto friendly bread, almost as easy as putting bread in the toaster.
Now I’ve used almond flour for this recipe and I’m often if you can just sub the almond flour for coconut flour. Unfortunately, the answer is NO, they are both different flours and react very differently. If you’ve only got coconut flour, try our 90 second coconut flour mug bread instead.
Use your keto bread for just about anything!
I can’t tell you how this changed my life. This keto bread is extremely versatile and can be used for many dishes. I found that just adding a bit of stevia and vanilla to it makes it the perfect replacement for lady finger biscuits or savoiardi in our keto tiramisu. It’s also fantastic to use to make keto bread crumbs with and perfect for burgers or sandwiches. This bread is also just 4 net carbs for the entire mug, so that is a definite plus point. And with 28 grams of fat and 13 grams of protein, it really balances out, macros-wise.

The 90 second Almond flour breas was very easy to make and fast. Only one thing to wash up. Thank you for the recipe. Thank you very much. i really needed a quick bread recipe that tasted great.
My pleasure, very glad you dig the recipe.
Hi Sahil, this is the first time I have seen a video from am so used to the 800Watt that and I love the way you show us how to make the Keto bread in a mug. But can you pleas tell me how many Watt your Microwave is as my new one is 1200 Watt and I am so used to the old 800Watt Microwave that I noticed that everything is getting cooked much quicker and I don’t want to over cook the bread.
I think mine is also 1200 watts. See if you over cook this by 10-20 seconds nothing will happen. Only when you cook for 1 minute or more than the given time will it dry out.
Headbanger Chef Sahil… CAN this be cooked in oven in the mug at about 350F/180C for 15 minutes or so????
>>We don’t believe in RADIATING our Food or Ourselves & don’t use a microwave at all…
Ceejoy – Please don’t give into fear mongering. There is nothing wrong with the microwave. It is 100% safe to use. If you still want to not use one, that’s your choice but please don’t spread incorrect information and try and get people to be fearful of something that is safe. If you have any legit studies to prove this (recent ones) please share those.
Hey, I have the same question about the oven. I don’t have a microwave….what temperature and time would you suggest?
never mind haha i saw a comment re: oven baked. 🙂
Thanks for putting all the macros and calorie count. I love sardines and kippers on toast. Now I can have a wonderful breakfast. Probably I’ll input 550 calories on “Lose It”. . OK I’ll swim 90 minutes to erase the calories from “Lose It”.
I don’t have a microwave, can it be baked in a oven and how long.
And microwaves do change something in protein foods. That is why breast milk is never microwaved.
It can be baked in the oven at 170C for about 10-12 minutes. Use the toothpick to check if it’s done.
Also that’s absolutely wrong information about microwaves. Breast milk is not microwaved because of the uneven heating which can cause ‘hot spots’ which will lead to your baby’s mouth being burned. It does nothing to the nutrition of the milk itself or the proteins. There is a lot of fear mongering about microwaves and most people don’t understand the basic principle of how it works. It’s like people who blindly say there are ‘chemicals’ in food not realizing that everything is a chemical compound, even drinking water. So don’t worry 🙂
Other than what Sahil says I want to add…that breast milk contains lot of live organisms (antibodies, etc) that gives passes from mother to baby and helps protect her from diseases that mother is immune to….so microwaving will destroy these helpful features (and so will heating) which is why it is not recommended.
I want to add that a generation back when radios and TVs were a new thing, people were afraid of them…talked about the rays that are being generated from them, etc etc. But now they are completely acceptable and OK to use in our household! So lets not just give in to this way of fear mongering…and evolve with time. I realize the need to simply and de-app and de-gadgetize our lives, but it cannot be through such baseless rumors.
VEGAN VERSION PLEASE. COULD I make one flax egg instead of egg? Looks yummy!
Hey Kate, feel free to try it and let me know how it goes.
Wow You seem to be very ignorant to what microwaves do to foods, why be mean to those who know the truth and just ask if it can be baked? You claim microwaves do nothing to the nutrition of foods yet that is a complete lie and most likely based in the majority of your recipes use the microwave. I did major research on this 15 years ago and what I found not only had me stop using microwaves but actually removed them from my living space.
Do a quick test on your own, microwave water and let it cool and water a plant with nothing but microwaved water and let me know what happens, then come back to everyone you have been ignorant to about warning about microwaves and apologize.
Please go read up and keep your cocky attitude elsewhere before I just start ignoring you and your fear mongering.
What in the world is with all the old people on here arguing about microwaves? 😂 I swear people are so bored with their lives they’re choosing to go backwards- “microwaves kill you! The earth is flat!” Get a grip people! Lol this is my go to keto microwave bread! It never fails! Love your recipes and your cookbook!
Some people read one article and all of a sudden they are an expert on microwaves.
This recipe is by far the best low carb bread recipe I have tried! The texture and flavor is close to an English muffin especially when lightly grilled. It holds up to any topping! In addition it keeps me full for hours! Thank you for your culinary creativity in creating this recipe! It has made the low carb way of eating easier!
Delicious recipe.Enjoyed making and eating.Thank you and God bless you for sharing.No Horns up.
Thanks for that great recipe Sahil. I am new to Keto and just trying out new recipes. I have made your bread twice now, and came out great each time. I toasted mine in Ghee on the pan and added some cooked spinach and bell peppers on top to make open faced sandwiches.
Thanks so much for this recipe – it’s a staple. I always have some in the fridge and take it with me to restaurants – no more lettuce buns! I tweaked it a bit using some other keto supplies i had on hand – 1/4 tsp xanthan gum makes it less dense, 1-2 tsp of psyllium husk makes it a bit more bready, and then a spash of avacado or coconut oil to add moister and fat. I will sometimes fold in chedder and jalapenos for added flavor boost. Again, thank you -this recipe has helped me fulfill my need for bread on this diet.
How many serves of the almond bread can i have per day
Thank you for this recipe! I’ve just started keto and I’m having fever dreams about baguettes and various pastries raining from the sky. Let’s hope this helps, before a mug a baker.
You’re welcome. Good luck with your journey on keto and I hope this helps.
Thank you SO very much for this recipe and your YouTube channel and site! For a newbie in Keto, you’ve been my go-to person to rely on for simple recipes that are satiating. This bread was delicious and will certainly help me not miss “regular” bread! Thanks again!!
thank you for the kind words 🙂
I just made your almond bread and it rocks!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe how delicious and easy it is. Great idea to do when traveling. Thanks a bunch.
Thank you 🙂
I just tried this recipe in my kitchen. OMG thank you so so much for this wonderful idea! The only thing I think I will try next time is to add just a dash or so of salt to the mug before microwaving (although it already tastes great!). I think it will be fun to experiment with adding some different seasonings or herbs to the batter before baking it, too, just for variety.
One of the hardest things to do when I travel is to find something to take for lunch OTHER than salads–that gets old fast! This will be a HUGE help so that I can add “bread” back into my lunch menus! Thank you VERY much! So fast, so easy, and VERY usable for those of us stuck in hotel rooms with limited options for eating in. It really does have the texture of whole-grain type of bread!! You’re a life saver! 😀
Thank you for the kind words Tara. Glad you dig the recipe.
You can also add Cheese and bacon to this bread, it’s really good too
Great idea!!! Thanks.
I add vanilla and cinnamon also delicious and kind of sweet
i liked this recipe it looks very simple .how make same bread without eggs? im vegan
Unable to find a way to work it without eggs. I’m sorry.
Wouldn’t Chia seeds and psyllium husk work as an egg alternative for vegans ??
I have never used them so it is hard for me to say.
A flax seed egg is an often used replacement, just mix 1 tbsp flax seed with 3 tbsp of water.
Other vegan options, though usually for sweeter bakings, are 1/2 a medium banana (mashed), 4 tbsp of applesauce and 4 tbsp of silken tofu.
All these are replacements for 1 egg, but I haven’t used hem myself, so you’ll have to try them out yourself to find which you prefer.
Be careful with the macro’s though, banana is certainly not keto.
I asked the same thing. I was wondering how a flax egg would work.
Try it and let me know 🙂
Best recipe!! i love this! really needed a bread-option on keto :)! Used lots of recipes from your youtube channel! Keep up the good work!! 😀
Thank you so much 🙂
I’m trying to figure out how to make it rise higher any suggestions
I absolutely love this! I have missed bread for a long while now, and this is perfect to ease the craving. Thank you!
Um….this came out spongey….any advice?
It is a spongy bread, you will need to toast it to make it crisp.
This will sound crazy, but we don’t own a microwave at all. Has anyone ever made this in the oven, and if so what temp and how long did you bake it for? I really want to make this so any help you can offer would be appreciated.
No problem, you can bake at 180C for about 10 minutes or till the toothpick comes out clean
Glad you asked as I don’t have a microwave either! Will definitely give it a go 🙂
i don’t like using microwaves so if i use an oven how long do you think do I have to put them in? I’m thinking of making cup cakes out of this 🙂
180C for 10 minutes or the toothpick comes out clean
Just tried this. Added a teaspoon of flax powder. Came out really well. Then toasted it in ghee and slathered on cream cheese and powdered pepper on top. Delicious ?.
Initially tasted good THEN had a horrible chemical taste to it !! Used organic egg, 100% almond meal, Kerry gold butter and baking powder (only 1/2 teaspoon) so I assuming it’s the baking powder , perhaps it’s got aluminium in it Although package says gluten free
Hi Darren, I can only imagine the baking powder giving it that taste. Try making one without it and see if you still get that taste. I can’t imagine why that should be the case.
Gluten and aluminium aren’t the same thing. Gluten is just a protein. You have to look for aluminum free baking powder to eliminate that taste. Cheers
I’ve done this before and realized I used Baking soda instead of baking powder. Definitely tasted like metal.
Just made the bread after watching you on YouTube and I have to say GREAT.
Awesome recipe! I just made this after craving a sandwich all day. It was extremely simple and tasted great. So glad I stumbled across your site.
Glad to hear that.
Great recipe, tried it tonight and it was super easy. One question, does it toast alright or no?
Yes it toasts quite well
Do you have to leave it to cool down, perhaps overnight, before toasting?
Nope, just pop it in the toaster after it comes out.
Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe! I discovered it on your YT channel this weekend and I have made it several times already!
I was wondering how this keeps in the fridge. I would like to make this the night before and have a quick breakfast to grab in the morning.
Your channel is a game changer, thank you!
thank you for the kind words.
Have you tried refrigerating the bread? How long does it last?
A week easy and yes I put it in the fridge if I don’t eat it all.
Why don’t you just mix all ingredients the night before? Then cook fresh in the morning. Its less than a minute to cook and will be nice and warm. Mind you, it took me less than 5 minutes to prepare…..
Thank you for sharing a wonderful bread recipe! I just made it and enjoyed it with a ton of butter. It’s crazy how a little bread can make Keto a whole lot easier. You rock!
thank you, glad to hear that.
Trie this twice and really love it! I’ve missed bread for so long and now have this as my go-to when I’m having those cravings. Thank you!!
I’m just starting a new low carb diet and I love your channel. You have so many great and easy recipes but I will definitely be trying this bread out. I love burgers, and was sad I won’t be able to have a bun anymore. I tried a different recipe before and it just tasted like eggs. This looks like it will work much better for me. I may try and make a few batches all at once in the oven and then freeze it for later. Rock on! \m/
This recipe was THE game changer for me. I make one everyday but with different seasonings so I don’t repeat or get bored. I just grab whatever herbs are about to pass on in my refrigerator. Rosemary and feta, red pepper flakes, basil, tarragon and a few drops of lemon… the possibilities are endless. Thank you so much.
This is absolutely wonderful. I’ve cheated a couple times and ate tortillas because of my bread cravings. Now I no longer have to. Can’t thank you enough!
Glad to hear that, thank you.
Like you say on your show, I am a foodie and hate it when recipes on websites turn out tasting bleh. This bread has a great texture. After making it a few times plain now, I added some sesame seeds to the batter and that turned out great too. I make an open faced breakfast sandwich with a slice of this almond flour bread, plenty of cream cheese and scrambled eggs. Paired with coffee. So tasty, that I can’t tell it isn’t a regular scrumptious egg sandwich.
Very glad to hear that Anu, thanks for sharing your variations and food ideas too.
Love this quick recipe. After the first time, I thought it needed a little *umpff *. So today I added dehydrated onion and parsley. It was really delicious. I spread avicado on it, and had a, microwaved, poached egg with cheese sauce…. a 10min breakfast….
The avocado and egg idea sounds amazing!
Love your channel, been experimenting with the keto lifestyle and ive been making this recipe for the last couple of days. while they turn out great i did notice that slightly bitter aftertaste in one batch (im assuming is baking powder) which doesnt happen everytime. Could I have used too much?
Also that eggy taste- is that normal? or could my measurements be off? Please help 🙂
Yes that aftertaste is probably the baking powder. Also yeah the eggy taste is normal because it’s got egg. The best you can do is buy fresher eggs or these days you can even find ‘odourless’ eggs in the market.
Hello, thank you for the recipe! I’m only a short time on the Keto program and miss carbs SOOO much! Tried this bread for the first time tonight and have a few things to say. For anyone not on the metric system, it works out to be about 3.2 tablespoons for the flour and 2.1 teaspoons for the butter. I’m assuming mine came out okay with those measurements but, if someone came up with a different amount, please let me know. Now, the bread came out exactly as you said it would. I cut mine in slices and put it straight into the toaster oven until it started to brown on top and get a little crunchy. For my filling I used some aged white cheddar and a couple thin slices of organic ham. With the cup I used, this came out about 2/3 the size of an English muffin. I was so excited for the first bite! Now, the negatives, which I’m hoping to fix. As it was microwaving, and when I pulled it out, there was just a really unpleasant, weird egg smell. I’m SOOO over eggs right now that I’m hoping I can figure out a way for that to go away. Maybe adding some garlic to the mix??? Also, I could taste the egg in the bread. Maybe for a breakfast sandwich it wouldn’t be so noticeable but, for the sandwich I made, it almost hid the taste of my ham and cheese. Back to the positives. This was only my first attempt and I’m THRILLED that I felt like I was having a sandwich. I like how some people have added their “recipes.” If I come up with a good one, I’ll write a quick replay. Thanks again for the recipe!!!!
You da real MVP, thanks!
This is brilliant. I made it today not in a mug but a cereal bowl. So it was bigger. I could only eat half. Rather filling. I layered it with cream cheese and a thin slice of smoked ham for mid afternoon snack. Slight bitter after taste which i think is from the baking powder. I am going to make it again with herbs like some others have suggested. Thanks HBK?
Absolutely wonderful recipe! Recently switched to KETO diet for my diabetes since the recommended diet wasn’t working (without loads of insulin, etc.) and hubby recently deemed pre-diabetic. My poor mother, who is a 71-year-old diabetic carb-o-holic, has been a very unhappy camper with the changes, until today. She had a delicious hamburger (using your recipe made in a wider dish) and jicama fries. She actually FINISHED her meal with a smile! Maybe now she won’t kill me in my sleep for tossing all the bread/carbs. ? Thanks!
Keto is a journey … With you along it seems so easy peasy.. Thank you.. My 90 secs turned out the best…
I have not tried this yet, but i intend to tonight. will this also work with some coco powder and sweeter for cake ?
Yeah it should
Hello from Jakarta, Indonesia! I just tried your recipe coz i was making an eggs bennedict & needed something for “bread”. Your recipe was BY FAR the easiest to make & quite tasty! Initially i was worried about the “eggy” taste, but didn’t happen. I think i will be making this often… i will pre-measure the 30gr of almond flour & cut up 10gr of butter pieces for easier assembly in the mornings. Cheers!
Glad to hear that!
Eggs Benedict! Oh yes I can now make it again!
Fab idea x
you have just made this diet 100x better for ne this substitute is by far the best thing iv had in ages
Love the simplicity, but I’m having a lot of issues with actually heating it. 90 on high leads to it boiling over.
Use a bigger cup
Omg thank you I LOVE this. Simply toasted and slathered in salted butter. Delicious!
Tried the bread this morning. What a treat! I’m wondering how the calorie count is 324?
Thanks for this recipe that will dramatically change my meal planning!
Glad to hear that. The almond flour and the egg. Almond flour is nearly 600 calories for 100 grams. Egg is about 90 calories for a large one
can this be done with coconut flour instead?
Yes but use my other recipe. This one https://headbangerskitchen.com/recipe/keto-coconut-flour-mug-bread/
This has saved me – A great quick bread and I only found yesterday- what a fantastic recipe- as soon as I found I tried it after watching & worked perfectly- I’m about to make another serve today
And then read through all your other recipes!
This is really the only thing I miss on keto! I just tried this and it is really THE game changer for me too. So many options for breakfast now! Thank you for making it. so simple and quick.
Just made a batch for 10 rounds. 300 grams flour. 100 grams of frozen butter. 1.5 tablespoons of baking powder and 8 home grown large eggs. I got 12 out of this mixture. Will freeze some. Fridge some and making tiramisu out of 2 for dessert tonight. So great to be organised for my week back on the wagon. Thanks for the recipe.
I’m a little confused over the Nutrition Info? Or at least the 2g of net carbs.
28 grams of Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour has 9 grams of carbs, and 3 grams of fiber, so wouldn’t that make this 6 net carbs?
I agree. I was doing the calculations, and double checking everything, and the almond flour alone pushes it over 6 net carbs :/
I love this bread so much. I am always making it!! Sometimes I make it with coconut flour and then toast it in butter. So good !
I love you. This is a game changer!
I just made it- but I don’t have anything to say- I just find it amusing that you seem to answer everyone and wanted to see if you would.
hahaha well I do value the people who take the time to comment so at least while it’s humanly possible for me to reply I like to try and do that 🙂
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but mine did not turn out.
I have baked with almond flour for years so it’s not inexperience.
I do not own a microwave but converted the 180c to 350f and baked for 10 min. It was still liquid.
hey Kim so maybe try 200C and just bake for longer till it sets? That should work.
It took 25 min at 350 in an counter top oven using unblanched almond flour, but we like it! I plan on baking batches for the week in ramekins.
Made this for my dad and exited to see his reaction! Thanks for this awesome recipie ,?
love this bread! but mine turns out a little skinny and sad,but good! could it be I’m at a high altitude and would you happen to know if I should add or decrease something?
Soooooo fluffy, yummy and versatile! I just made it for the first time. Been making the coconut flour mug bread the past couple of days but this is so less dense. Grilled a couple of pieces and HOLY HELL it’s amazing! Love your site and your recipes. Coconut flour wraps (love wrapping my salad) are next! Neither bread has affected my keto either. I’m also 100% Paleo. Swapping out the cream for ghee in the coconut mug bread works really well!
This love’s coming from an original, 80s headbanger, by the way. I’m talking Haunting the Chapel, Fistful of Metal and Killing is My Business on vinyl, along with a slew of others ? Yeah, I’m old ?
hahaha you’re only as old as you feel and those are all classics 🙂
Oh well in that case, I’m about 22 ?
The Almond mug bread was incredibly easy to make and very tasty as well. I toasted in on a pan using 1tsp ghee and topped it with Avocado. Yummm…
Only question I have: Shouldn’t the net barbs be 6g or 5g, not 3g, since the almoand flour in itself has 9g total carb and 3g fiber? May be my calculations are wrong?
I will recheck my calculations. Just looking right now online it says 6 grams of carbohydrates, and 3 grams of fiber for every 1/4 cup.
I want to incorporate milled flax seed with my almond flour one – do you have anything like that?
So use this recipe and use 1/2 the amount of almond flour and 1/2 the amount ground flax seeds.
Love this bread! So fast and easy, toasts well too! I add a tablespoon of truvia sweetener and salt; today I added a handful of blueberries and put some sugar free syrup on the slices– heaven. I missed pancakes, this helps!! Thanks again!!
Makes the best French toast EVER
It’s been 1.5 weeks since I started the keto diet and I was really craving for some bread, and my mom could feel my struggle. She stumbled upon your recipe and didn’t think twice to make it.
Thank you for sharing this recipe!! I now have plans to make it tomorrow, for breakfast, in my office 😉
Can someone give me the recipe in tsp, tbl etc.? Can’t do the grand ounces thing well.
There is a converter on the recipe box. But please do buy a scale and start to use that it’s more accurate.
Hi Sahil do you think I could add a few seeds / grains etc to this bread please
Sure! I don’t see why not.
OK. This looks just the ticket. Guess what I’m trying out tomorrow? 😀
Could you make this adding cinnamon and bit of stevia as a sweet muffin?
Yes absolutely! It might have a more corn-bread like texture though
Can you make this dairy free?
Replace the butter with oil and you are good I think.
Hi, Sahil! Just wondering if the sizing of the mug matters, I’ve skimmed the comments to maybe see if anyone else had a similar question, but I may have missed it, if so. I like to say the mug I used is the average size, but seems like my little cylinder bread is wonky, are air bubbles an issue, also? Thanks! ?
Sounds like the Keto bread to me it’s a cylindrical load and depending on how well it’s mixed it has those air bubbles.
Fantastic! So easy to make. Not sure if I didn’t mix mine well enough, but it had a couple of “air holes” in it after baking. Did not matter…tastes great. I made a grilled cheese out of two of the slices…delicious! I can’t wait to try some of the ideas from the comments: adding herbs and/or spices, adding cinnamon and stevia, etc. Seems the possibilities are endless.
One minor suggestion (that could help those who only look at the typed recipe and don’t watch the video), the Salted Butter ingredients could say Salted, Melted Butter 🙂 Thanks for this recipe!
Sure thing, thanks a ton.
OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG.
Mi mancava proprio gustare una fetta di pane. Oggi ho provato la tua ricetta.. Fantastico. Possibile sostituire il burro con l’olio di oliva? Se la risposta è positiva, quantità uguale al burro? Grazie
Sì, puoi sostituire il burro con olio d’oliva e sì, la stessa quantità.
First time trying it and I love it. It had the eggy smell, but no eggy taste if u let it sit awhile. And no bitter after taste either. One serving is a lot of bread. It’s kinda sitting in my stomach for the past 12 hours…
Yeah I rarely eat a whole one myself in 1 go.
Wow… I made this for the first time yesterday and feel like I don’t need bread anymore this is a real game changer. It turned out a little dry the first time, but then I adjusted the time (80 seconds) and it made all the difference! I also added a little bit of swerve and it tasted like regular bread to me!! Toasted it and topped with Philadelphia 😀
I love this recipe. I add wheat bran to it sometimes. 1 carbon per tbsp and it give more fiber and texture.
Ok – just made it. Yes, it’s a bit eggy but I love eggs and not so much when you have toppings on it.
I just used 1/3rd cup Almond Flour with 2 tsp of melted butter (with the baking soda and egg) and it was fabulous. For us US cooks that don’t want to weigh things. 80 Seconds in my micro.
If I am dairy free will a butter substitute work? Or even ghee?
This was great. Just started doing keto a few days ago and had some stuff in my kitchen and went with this quick bread recipe and whipped up a cheese burger real quick. Will be doing this very often. Thanks!
I would love to know if you put this in the oven, did you use a muffin pan or loaf pan? Have you ever considered doing a keto donut recipe?
I just use any oven friendly dish in the shape I want the bread and yeah I will look into a keto doughnut recipe 🙂
Wow!! Just started keto/Low carb. This is amazing! Just made an experimental batch.. toasted with butter… mmmmmm
Awesome, thanks, a simplified and better recipe than the one I had been using. Went down great last night when I sliced it, smothered it in garlic butter topped with cheese and baked it for cheesy garlic bread.
Loved it! Made it late one night after the kid went to bed and the bf refused to believe it wasn’t real bread! He made me make a whole second mug ‘s worth just to prove it (and then ate half of it). Looking forward to experimenting with add-ins!
I DOUBLED EVERYTHING BUT THE EGG AND USED A BIGGER MUG. I WAS TRYING TO GET TWO BUNS FROM IT. IT CAME OUT GOOD AFTER 90 SECONDS BUT I COULDN’T SLICE IT TO MAKE THE TWO BUNS IT WASN’T SPONGY ENOUGH 🙁 DO YOU THINK MAYBE BECAUSE I ONLY USED ONE EGG? WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR INPUT MY GOOD MAN SAHIL. THANK YOU!
Yes, if you double the recipe you have to double every ingredient. 1 egg cannot handle that amount of almond flour as the egg is what makes it spongy.
It’s actually surprised by this bread. It turned out really well. I actually sliced it topped it with a little bit of coconut cream mixed with stevia and put a couple of slices of fresh strawberries on it to have my own strawberry short cake like dessert. Who’s pretty good
Has anyone tried freezing this?
Love the recipe – thanks for sharing!
Fantastic recipe! I just used this for a burger bun and was so impressed with how well it held together! No crumbling or falling apart at all – brilliant! I’ve tried your coconut flour version, too and it also works very well! I’ll have to experiment with flavourings and such now, but I love them both plain, too. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂
Thank you for not writing a damn novel and getting to what we came for, the recipe. I do not like having to scroll through my entire data plan in order to read the ingredients.
I was just wondering, is there a way to bake this instead of microwave?
180 C for maybe 10 minutes or the toothpick comes out clean
Thinking outside of the box tonight. O made the mug bread yesterday. Afterwards I realized what a great base platform it is.
Tonight I wanted stuffed pork chops.
I made two portions in flat soups bowls. Added a hard boiled egg & grilled onions from the pork rendering and sage dressing spices. It was awesome. The only thing I could have done to make it better would have been a quarter cup or less of water in the skillet for the flavor and poured it on top of the dressing. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this awesome bread recipe.
Can you please give us the amounts to use to microwave a whole loaf?
Just double or tripple or quadruple the recipe and use as per the size of your microwave dish
Thank you Sahil for this wonderful recipe! I tried it today and it came out superb! I was worried about the after tastes, so was little conservative using the egg. Here’s what I did, 1/4 cup = almond flour, 1 tbsp = ground flaxseed with mixed berries, 0.5 egg white, little salt, pinch of baking powder, 1 tsp of butter and 1 tsp of olive oil.
The bread came out super spongy and delicious, no after tastes and could toast them on the pan! Had them with egg white omelet, they tasted yummy as my breakfast.
Love this bread but it is eggy. I always toast it in a skillet and I also add chia seeds.
I just came across this recipe less than a hour ago. I doubled the ingredients, put in microwave for 3 minutes and it came out absolutely perfect!! Then I sliced it in half, put cheese and sliced onion on it and toasted it in a skillet the same way I would do a grilled cheese sandwich. Great way to start my day!!
I’m not sure that I understand the carb count. My Almond flour is 5g per 14 g serving size. The recipe calls for 30g. There is 1g of fiber per serving. How does the recipe come out to 2g net carbs.? I must be missing something.
Sir, you are an angel, descended from heaven. I tried the recipe & it came out perfectly. Immediately thereafter, I texted & emailed your link to all my friends & family on Keto. Def a game changer. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have just one question: can the recipe be doubled or tripled?
Your new fan
hahaha thank you Luis you are too kind 🙂
Does it stick to the cup or does it come out easily? Do you need butter or Pam in the cup?
Comes out easily.
This recipe is amazingly versatile. I have used in three ways:
1. Breakfast bread in a bowl: I added a bit of salt and stevia to taste, then 30 grams of blueberries. I have an 800 watt microwave, so to compensate for both the blueberries and the lower wattage, added 20 seconds. I put butter on the top and eat it right out of the bowl.
2. Same recipe as above, but in a mug. I slice the blueberry bread. I toast my slices in a pan coated with a bit of coconut oil, then add a little bit of butter on top.
3. Garlic Toast: add a bit of salt to your recipe. Microwave at for 1:40 (800 watts). Slice, butter, and add garlic powder (not garlic salt). Toast in a pan. Loved it.
What could be a substitute for the egg in this recipe? I’m on a keto diet with some additional restrictions, like no dairy, no egg. Can you help me?
I am sorry I don’t have an egg substitute.
Your recipes are functional and delicious. You should consider putting all this knowledge into a cook book.
If I get an offer from a publisher I don’t see why not 🙂
Thanks so much for this recipe! A real game changer and soo very versatile & EASY! I love that when making dinner for the family, and just I need to eat Keto, I can make this just for me while the rest of them are having their whole wheat breads, ciabatta, rye, etc breads! So fast!
How have i just found your recipes? I made this in my oven and turned out great. Very filling and not time consuming at all. It holds together very well, loved it toasted.
It made up beautifully but has a metallic-bitter taste. What do I need to know?
Change your baking powder. I think you might have used baking soda instead. That’s generally where the issue is. Taste your almond flour and see that it tastes fine on it’s own.
Thanks for this marvellous recipe. This bread-addicted diabetic is getting much better numbers now! All I have to do now is figure out how to stop the husband eating it. Every time I make a ‘muffin’ (as we call it) he wants half of it. Love your site and videos, especially the jibber-jabber.
thanks for the recipes, it is a close replacement for bread. tastes great with burgers, breakfast, or a quick sandwich
Made these this morning, and my kids loved ’em! However, I had convert grams to cups and spoons. Your mileage may vary, but here is what worked for me:
1/3 cup almond flour
2.25 tsp coconut oil
pinch of salt
1/2 t baking powder
Mix and nuke for 90 seconds
Thank you sir for this recipe. So simple and quick. You make keto world a lot easier for me.
Just tried this tonight- was going to make a flat bread but realized I didn’t have a rolling pin. I used it to make two little grilled cheese and veggie sammies…so yummy, thanks!
Its not bad. But it is eggy. Still searching for the perfect bread substitute….
Delicious. I added a little shredded parm, pinch of sage and some crumbled bacon to the recipe and it was a perfect breakfast biscuit to start the day. Thank you!
Your net carb count is totally wrong. It works out to be nearly 9g of net carbs, NOT 2g. The almond flower alone is 9g total carbs and an egg has .7g of carbs. Please either correct your nutritional data or prove me wrong…:) Thanks!
You are right. It’s not 2g it’s 4g per mug bread. We use 30 grams of almond flour which is 6g carbs and 1g from the egg which is 4g net carbs. I’ve corrected it. My earlier calculation was with ‘Trader Joe’s Almond Flour’. Bob’s Red Mill is what’ I’ve used now. Also almond flour = ground almonds which have 10g net carbs per 100g so we’re anyway looking at 3g net carbs for 30 grams of almond flour plus the .7g from the egg. So 4g is about right.
Not quite sure if I’m doing it wrong but the mixture isn’t liquidy at all, it’s almost dry, it’s a bit difficult to mix and I had to add a tablespoon of water to even mix it. It didn’t come out fluffy looking like yours did, it’s rather dense (I guess from overmixing), but it doesn’t taste bad. I also added a pinch of oregano, cumin and garlic powder. I toasted it and had some hummus with it. 🙂 Any idea how to fix the batter or what I’m doing wrong?
Maybe it’s the size of the egg. Perhaps your eggs are much smaller, so you could try adding 2 eggs.
I love that it’s quick, easy and one serving. I tried it as a burger bun but found it too dry and eggy for that. It does however make an excellent french toast if you dip it in some cream and cinnamon and fry it up.
I am very new to keto(2 weeks) and am missing my bread like crazy. I am going to try this tonight for dinner. I am already so excited for it.
Hello Sahil! Amazing recipe as always. Wanted to enquire if the same could be made in an oven and if so how much time would it take?
10 minutes at 180C or so. Use the toothpick test to check if done.
Was very skeptical, a lot of recipes using almond flour are really dry but this wasn’t. Thanks so much.
Just made this!! Added some onion salt and pepper and grilled afterwards for a toasty muffin. Amazing!! Thank you x
I just tried this and it was easy and good !!! I am new to using Almond flour and have not had any success except this one. THANK YOU for sharing this recipe.
I add some garlic powder and oregano. It tastes amazing. I generally make a grilled cheese sandwich or eat it with Keto pau bhaji !!
You sir, have made my keto journey SO. MUCH. FREAKING. EASIER.
I have been craving mozzarella sticks something chronic and, being an Aussie, nobody has any of that fancy ‘low carb’ crap in the stores!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. I shall now eat my weight in mozzarella sticks!!!!! *happy dance*
My pleasure Bri. Thank you for the kind words.
Hi Sahil, I ‘ve just made the almond bread and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast and easy it was to make and how good it was. Nice spongey texture and I’m already thinking it would be tasty with some sweetness and cinnamon… I’ve also watched your cooking channel and enjoy your approach-fun and straightforward! Thanks again Sahil
Hi, I made this into a pizza base by spreading it on a plate and microwaving it, then I topped it with tomato paste, herbs, onion flakes, cheese and vegetables for pizza. Cooked it in the oven for 15-20 mins, delicious….thank you for the great recipe
Love the recipe and it comes out well every single time! Thanks! Just wanted to ask u, for how long can this bread be stored incase I need to prepare it in advance and how should the bread be stored?
Hey Sunayana, it lasts for a week in the fridge at least and just put it in a tupperware box and store it. Ziplock bags etc are all fine as well.
What a wonderfully minimalist recipe. I was a bit skeptical at first, but it turned out surprisingly good.
Thank you so much for sharing. Cheers!
Thank you for the recipe, very helpful. Maybe update with the oven cooking temp and time for those of us who don’t own microwaves. By the way, I’ve been researching microwave oven health risks for 20 years and the truth is that there is evidence on BOTH sides, so for you to tell people it’s “fear mongering” and “not to worry” is extremely irresponsible.
I don’t mean to be combative with you, but it is POSSIBLE that microwave ovens are harmful in some small way, and it all adds up, all the toxins and pollutants in our environment all add up at the end of the day, and some of us want to play it safe by not using a microwave, just in case…
I will agree to disagree. I think it’s fear mongering. But it’s a free world, those are want to avoid using it because they ‘suspect’ that it’s not safe. They can go ahead. Hope you can respect my stand on it.
What a wonderful recipe!! The texture is amazing. Thanks Sahil?
Sahil- i was dying to have some bread in my breakfast.. made this today morning. added oregano and chilli flakes for twist. and it turned out so good… made a delicious cheese tomato sandwich with this toasted bread.. so amazingly good…
Just tried a modified version of this mug bread in a mini waffle maker and it works!
Basically I added cinnamon and a sweetener to the mix then cooked half the batter in a mini waffle maker and BAM.. waffles. =D
I have a severe allergy to wheat- anaphylactic shock, epipen, all the fun stuff. As such, I have several flour alternatives in the house. To lighten up the almond flour taste I used:
20g almond flour
5g coconut flour
5g sweet white sorghum flour
I added an herb salt and crushed rosemary; Toasted is my preference, with cream cheese for breakfast, with tuna for snack or lunch. It more than satisfies my need for bread. I am eternally grateful having found this option
I’m diabetic and not allowed bread usually , I have missed the convenience of it so very much thank you tremendously I love it and it beats lettuce wraps!
Thank you…made mug bread today and used for bread omelet, garlic cheese toast,sandwich.it goes well with 3.
OMG. It really works!!!!
Thank you very much for all of your hard work and delicious recipes.
I think if you put the batter in a 3-1/2″ to 4″ ramekin, the bread will be perfectly sized for a water buffalo burger.
This exceeded my expectations! What a great idea! It was so easy. Thank you!
Mr. Makhija, you have CHANGED MY LIFE, with this obscenely easy almond flour bread. ??♥️? *crying*
Hi chef , if I don’t have microwave and oven, can I steam the bread?
Yes you should be able to but do you have a regular oven? Bake it instead. Much better results.
Hi , I made it. I steam it ,takes about 10-12 minutes. As a typical Chinese family in Malaysia , we don’t have oven or microwave in house. But hey …. it turn out very well. Thank you much for the recipe.
Thank you so much for taking the time to make such great recipes. The mug bread came out perfectly…I tried someone else recipe and all I got was strange scrammbled eggs :/ I had it for lunch with Colombian beef rib soup (I swapped turnips for potatoes). It was fantastic! I tried keto once before, but all the recipes I found were bland. And for a latina like me, that’s not a good look! I have ordered your cookbook, can’t wait! THNX again. Mx
Have just started keto and found your sight and joined.
Tried the mug bread in microwave- it didn’t rise much and didn’t look like yours – Def couldn’t slice it to use – where did I go wrong,?
No sure Chris, might be the size of the mug perhaps. As long as the egg and almond flour is used it will come out fine.
Thanks Sahil – very quick, simple and versatile bread recipe. Your methods and good humour make Keto a lot more approachable. Keep rockin and down with the begrudgers.
I tried this recipe and YES it’s EASY and DELCIOUS in fact better than real bread, BUT I have one complaint, the recipe does not make enough all I get is one satisfying sitting, I want to make larger batches. I assume if I was to quadruple the measurements of all the ingredients would do the trick BUT would I quadruple the microwave time from 90 secs to 360 secs?
I guess it would say the same, you can keep checking after 90 seconds and add 30 seconds as needed.
Love all your keto recipes and cooking tips. Can this bread be made ahead and stored refrigerated or frozen. When I am watching my grandchildren ( 3 under the age of 3) even 90 uninterrupted seconds is hard to find some days.
yeah you should be able to do that no problem.
Sahil you are a fucking GENIUS!!!! Brother this IS a life-changing recipe!! I am SO happy there aren’t even words, this FEELS like and TASTES like a delicious buttery soft white bread with the crusts cut off!!! I just made it and had some doubts but I could wait no longer.
Measured the amounts exact, stirred it up in the mug and into the microwave for 90 seconds. For a moment I smelled egg and thought this was going to be a fail. 90 seconds up, and I pulled it from the microwave. It was a bit….”jiggly”…and I said outloud to my wife “oh well, it sounded too good to be true” as I tipped it out on the cutting board. It cooled for about 2 minutes and I said “well, might as well try it”, so I cut a slice. It LOOKED and cut like bread! I cut the rest for a total of 5 slices. In that time it was like magic, it BECAME bread!!
I’m in the USA and peanut butter and jelly is the TRUE TEST of bread. Most of us grew up on PB&J on soft white bread, crusts cut off. It is iconic and requires real bread to pull it off…
UNTIL YOU CAME ALONG AND FUCKING ALTERED TIME AND SPACE and created this AMAZING BREAD!! It is PERFECT!! NO egg taste. Mouthfeel is PERFECT! I could have sworn I was eating real white bread, soft and delicious!! And in 90 seconds start to finish!!!
You just changed my fucking LIFE brother! This is going to be such a savior for me. Did keto 20+ years ago (Atkins) and lost a lot of weight, but bread….man I missed it. Now I’m starting keto again and wanted to make meatballs, so I looked for keto bread crumb recipe and wound up here. Thanks for sharing all this knowledge and recipes, no joke, THIS is a life changing recipe, it’s brilliant!!! I’ll let ya know how the meatballs using this for breadcrumbs goes! Also a metal guitarist for 30+ years, love the tracks ya posted, will lock ya in on Spotify!
Up the irons my headbangin brother!!!

I am an absolute fan of your channel. The only reason i have been able to stick to Keto is your easy to make recipes.
One question on this recipe – Is there a substitute for egg in this recipe ?
Sadly there are no substitutes for eggs in any of my recipes. I’d just say eat the egg.
Delicious! Thank you.
Wow, what a game-changer! It is a perfectly good bread substitute, and bread is something I miss the most. There are so many things that you might want to put on bread or a cracker, and this fits the bill. Cheese, smoked salmon, etc, just aren’t ‘right’ unless on bread or a cracker.
Looking forward to trying this with Eggs Benedict.
I tried to experiment i used homemade soy flour 15gm and 15gm dessicated coconut and other ingredients it came out perfect soft and bready one slice of it was enough with omlette.
Thanks for sharing recipes 😊
Same i did with mug cake it came out delicious today will pour fat bomb on mug cake and eat.
