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.
So what are you going to do with this bread? Perhaps use our Keto Peanut Butter and Keto Mayonnaise recipes to make sandwiches? Or a keto sausage and egg McMuffin? Let us know in the comments below!

Low Carb Keto Bread Recipe
A keto almond flour loaf that's almost better than the real thing.
- 150 Grams Almond Flour I use this one
- 6 Eggs Separated into yolks and whites
- 1 Tsp Baking Powder I recommend this one
- 1/4 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
- 4 Tbsp Melted Butter I recommend this one
- Preheat the oven to 175C (350 F).
- In a clean bowl, begin whipping the egg whites. Add the lemon juice when the whites become frothy.
- Whisk the egg white on medium speed to stiff peaks.
- In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolk until pale yellow.
- Add the salt, baking power and butter to the egg yolks and whisk till it doubles in volume.
- Fold the almond flour into the egg yolks in three additions.
- Once the almond flour is completely incorporated into the egg yolk mixture, fold in the egg whites. First add a third of the whites in, folding gently to lighten the mix. Then fold in the remaining egg white in two batches.
- Grease your loaf tin and pour in your batter.
- Bake the bread for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in it comes out clean.
- Allow the bread to cool, then slice and serve.
Sieve the almond flour to get rid of any lumps in the batter.
When you're separating your eggs, make sure absolutely no yolk gets in the whites. Even a trace of yolk means the egg white won't whip up at all.
Fold in the egg whites very gently, trying to deflate the mix as little as possible for the springiest bread.
If the bread tastes too eggy, an overnight stay in the fridge should reduce the aftertaste.

I’m curious as to why you folded in the flour rather than adding the 2 egg whites and blending to remove lumps. I found your method to be extremely thick and hard to fold in the 1st third of the egg whites. Baking right now so I’ll post back on how it came out.
Sahil MakhijaJanuary 31, 2018 at 11:29 am
I did this recipe ages ago so I can’t remember right now why I did what I did actually.
MandyJune 20, 2019 at 12:49 am
Same. Unable to hold in egg white
LouJanuary 29, 2018 at 11:20 pm
If you’re wanting cornbread, this could be your go-to recipe. Tasty, but not what I was looking for.
John GNovember 26, 2020 at 11:04 pm
This recipe is a good eggy bread but a GREAT cornbread recipe can be found here –> https://thatlowcarblife.com/low-carb-cornbread/
I have made this several times and it’s amazing!
TeriFebruary 21, 2018 at 1:50 am
This is such a tasty bread recipe and I followed the recipe to a T. Even my 19-yr picky son enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing
Sahil MakhijaFebruary 21, 2018 at 3:49 am
Really glad to hear that.
EstelleMarch 23, 2018 at 12:32 am
We loved it!! Perfect cure for our missing bread. Thank you so much!
Deepak MSApril 5, 2018 at 5:14 am
Can we reduce the no of eggs to reduce the eggyness?
Sahil MakhijaApril 6, 2018 at 3:24 am
Yes but it won’t rise much then. Best to get fresh eggs and better quality eggs as they smell less. Also use fresh garlic and rosemary to flavour it and that helps tone down the eggyness of the bread.
DaniMay 3, 2018 at 7:56 pm
I made a half of recipe to see if I liked it first as almond flour is so expensive. Next time I will make the full recipe so it comes out not so flat. But this is by far my favorite keto bread recipe. I cut back on the amount of almond flour a bit and replaced that portion with hemp flour that had protein added to it. Then took your recommendation in another comment to add garlic and herbs to cut back on the eggy taste plus added 2 TBSP of Parmesan. It came out with an earthy color from the hemp but it was amazing. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

I have a surplus of eggwhites in my freezer. Wo dering if I could us all whites in this recipe?
Sahil MakhijaSeptember 5, 2018 at 10:41 am
Am pretty sure you can.
lynleeSeptember 17, 2018 at 3:26 pm
This was delicious! I liked that the beaten egg whites made it a little less dense. Have you tried this method with the coconut flour bread? I like that one too but the slices are really small due to it being so dense.
LiatSeptember 19, 2018 at 4:50 pm
Can I do this without lemon extract?
Sahil MakhijaSeptember 20, 2018 at 2:47 am
For whipping the egg whites? No that won’t work, you need either the lime/lemon, vinegar or cream of tartar.
RubyOctober 27, 2018 at 4:02 pm
What is the weight of the bread loaf that will come out of it?
Sahil MakhijaOctober 28, 2018 at 2:39 am
I do not remember, I think this was the first and last time I made the bread so it’s been about 2 years.
StaceyApril 1, 2019 at 4:26 pm
Do you store in fridge afterwards to keep it or does it keep fine in a baggy in bread box?
Sahil MakhijaApril 2, 2019 at 3:34 am
MeenalMay 18, 2019 at 6:42 pm
Hey Sahil , recently started keto hence watching your recipe ,but I don’t eat eggs hence can you please suggest what substitutes shall I take ?? Tried with baking soda only but does not work , & Apple sauce is high in carb hence can you pls suggest .
Sahil MakhijaMay 19, 2019 at 4:29 am
I’m sorry Meenal there is no substitute for eggs. All I can say is if you don’t eat eggs because you think they are not vegetarian then please start eating them they are as vegetarian as milk/dairy is. 🙂
HankgJuly 15, 2019 at 1:58 pm
Cream of tartar is mentioned in the article “to stabilise ” the egg whites. But then it’s not a listed ingredient in the recipe!! ??
Sahil MakhijaJuly 16, 2019 at 3:12 am
I will check and fix it. Cheers! 🙂
ASHIS ROYJuly 30, 2019 at 1:33 pm
Thank you for the recipe.
For some reason my loaf did not rise as much, was eggy and more off white than yellow as the picture shows. Any suggestions?
SoniraSeptember 4, 2019 at 2:56 am
Looking for a man almond flour Keto bread that uses yeast. Not happy with the ones I have found online so far. Pls help
Deepti UnniSeptember 4, 2019 at 4:02 am
It’s a bit tough because you don’t have gluten to help the dough trap the gases from the yeast and rise like normal bread but people have got keto bread to taste more like regular bread by using nutritional yeast. Maybe try that?
EvonneJuly 4, 2020 at 10:17 am

Hello Sahil! How can I store the bread? In want temperature? And for how long can I store it?
Sahil MakhijaAugust 8, 2020 at 3:12 am
I usually stored it in the fridge for a week to 10 days tops.
Sharmista GanapaFebruary 24, 2021 at 6:44 am
Hello Sahil! I really enjoyed making and eating this bread. However I would like to know if it’s best to store the slices in an airtight box at room temperature or is it suitable to store the same in the fridge
Sahil MakhijaFebruary 24, 2021 at 9:19 am
I prefer to store this in the fridge.
Carla MiguelMay 18, 2021 at 10:38 am
Thank you for this amazing recipe of the almond bread, I’ve doing since I found your page here in the net.
Gulfira Ballack (Jabbarov)June 21, 2021 at 4:09 am
Hello Sahil! Just found your recipes, and was amazed to see my former coworker in our video. What a small world, I used to work with Mat at Bracket Global in SF. Now I live in AZ. Thank you for the recipe, I will try to make it this wee.
