KetoConnect and Headbanger’s Kitchen collaborate on keto bread
If you’re on keto, you probably know about KetoConnect. Matt and Megha have some of the most informative and comprehensive keto content out there, so when they emailed me asking me if I was interested in a collab video, it seemed like a great idea. We each decided to each pick a dish from the other’s videos and make them on our respective YouTube channels. I picked up their almond flour bread recipe which was a total winner. It’s still one of their most popular recipes to date. In fact, I hadn’t tried a single keto bread right up till this recipe because of how expensive almond flour was. But then I figured out how to make almond flour at home and it opened up so many more possibilities. Like this two-minute microwave keto mug bread, for instance, or even this low carb fathead pizza crust .
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, KetoConnect picked up my flourless chocolate cake to make in turn. You can watch it here
Low carb bread essentials
For a light, springy keto bread, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Sift the almond flour before using it; this weeds out the lumps and gives you a smoother batter. If you don’t have cream of tartar to stabilise the egg whites, use a few drops of lemon or vinegar instead. Also, use a very, very light hand to fold in the egg whites into the batter to keep from deflating it. If you find this bread too eggy, leaving it overnight in the fridge seems to help reduce that aftertaste.
And apologies, but you can’t make this without eggs and you can’t substitute almond flour with coconut flour. If you must use coconut flour, here’s a recipe for keto coconut mug bread.
