Equipment

  • 8 inch loaf pan

Ingredients
 

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup egg white powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter (sub for oil)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 325°F
  • In a mixing bowl add all dry ingredients and give a mix to blend it together. I suggest you sift the egg white powder but the recipe can be made without sifting.
  • Melt butter. Pour water into dry mix, crack egg and add in melted butter. Mix everything well until smooth.
  • Line a 8 in loaf pan with parchment paper. Just the long sides. The short sides will release pretty well.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until done. To test doness give a light tap on the top. When the bread is hard all the way across it's done. If any spot feels squishy or airy let it firm up more.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool then serve.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Does it taste eggy? This can only be prevented by adding an additional flavor. I use egg whites which helps create that bread-like flavor and texture for toasting. But, if not paired with something you will get a light egg flavor if you don't toast it. To prevent this I add yeast to my recipe. If you wonder if yeast is keto I have an entire video and blog post explaining it. The yeast will only provide flavor, without the addition of sugar it can't activate to cause any rise. A option is adding things like flaxseed or even herbs will help. Whatever you use is what the bread will taste like.
  • Can I use egg whites instead of powder, for this recipe I use the powder for several reasons. If you want to skip it I suggest using a recipe that uses that by another food blogger. There are several that have done this well.
  • For best flavor, toast in or with butter. As mentioned above the bread takes the flavor of whatever you use. This includes when you toast it in butter. The flavor comes through very well!
