Best Keto Bread

We absolutely love bread. It’s tasty, versatile, full of possibilities, and it’s great for a quick yet filling sandwich when you’re on the go. But what about if you’re following a keto diet, have a gluten allergy, or simply feel that regular, store-bought bread isn’t a healthy option?

Does this mean no more hot, buttered toast or sandwiches?

Absolutely not. Keto bread is a handy and delicious alternative to regular bread. However, you might decide against buying keto bread from the store, since it’s very expensive. Especially if you have a family and one loaf won’t last very long, it might be cheaper and easier to bake your own keto bread.

Baking bread can be fun and rewarding. There’s nothing quite like the smell of delicious, fresh bread, and if you have small children, they’ll love helping you with the recipes. It also means that you know exactly what ingredients are going into your bread.

So, without further ado, here are a selection of seven easy and delicious keto bread recipes. You can choose your favorite, or simply experiment!

Best Keto Bread

#1  5-Minute Keto Bread

This was one of the simplest recipes I found, and certainly the quickest; prep time and cooking time adds up to just 5 minutes. It also has the benefit of being low-carb, with only approximately 1 carb per slice of bread.

If you haven’t made keto bread before, why not start with this one? While you’re not likely to get a huge, family-size loaf from these measurements, it does make an ideal breakfast. If you are serving it for breakfast, it’s quick and easy to make.


Putting it all together is simple. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix until they’re well combined. You should have a thick batter by the time you’re done.

Then coat a microwave-safe dish with a baking spray and spread your batter in the dish, making sure it’s nice and even.

Then it’s time to cook. Depending on how powerful your microwave is, you’ll need to cook the batter for 1-2 minutes.

Then let the bread cool. Once it’s cooled, slice up and enjoy, maybe with a pat of butter on a fresh slice of the bread.

#2  4 Ingredient Avocado Keto Bread

This is another simple recipe. It needs only 4 ingredients that you probably already have on hand in your kitchen. This recipe makes a more substantial loaf, and if you like avocado, it’s sure to be a hit.

You’ll need a blender or hand mixer for this recipe. When making this keto bread, you won’t get the solid kind of dough that’s associated with regular bread. It forms a batter that rises and firms up during cooking.

You might find the taste and texture a little different if you aren’t used to keto bread, but it still has the delicious, chewy, bread-like texture that we all love.


  • 2 medium avocados (approximately 1 ¼ cups)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2tbs Everything Bagel Seasoning (an absolute must to give this recipe that extra crunch and taste!)
  • 8oz Cream Cheese (should be at room temperature)

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the avocados and cream cheese until the mixture is smooth and well combined, using either the blender or hand mixer. Add the eggs and bagel seasoning into the batter, and mix well.

Taking a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and cooking spray, pour your batter into the pan and spread it out evenly.

Tip: Add some extra Bagel Seasoning to the top of the batter before baking. This will add some extra flavor and crunch to the loaf.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked all the way through.

Serve warm, and enjoy!

#3 Keto Lemon Loaf Bread

You don’t need to just make plain loaves of keto bread. There are so many recipes available to try, and if you’ve got a sweet tooth, why not try a “dessert” loaf? It can be difficult to find suitable desserts on a gluten-free or keto diet, so it might be worth making a sweet loaf of keto bread instead.

This lemon loaf is sweet and delicious and includes a glaze to add on top. If you like lemon muffins and drizzles, this is ideal for you. It can be used as a dessert, a snack, or even a breakfast. It’s low-carb, and of course, keto-friendly.

This is also a simple recipe, with ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen. You can leave out the glaze if you want something a bit less sweet.


For the loaf:


For the glaze:

  • 2 tsps. Lemon Juice
  • ¼ cup Sweetener

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Add the eggs, butter, lemon extract, and sweeter to a bowl and whisk until well combined. Add the coconut flour and almond flour, blending gradually.

Once everything is well mixed together, pour the whole mixture into a prepared loaf tin. Line the loaf tin with parchment to avoid the bread sticking. Bake the bread mixture for 30 minutes.

While the bread is baking, mix the lemon juice and sweetener together to form a thick glaze.

Let the bread cool, and then drizzle the glaze on top.

Tip: Add a small amount of glaze while the bread is still warm. Gently pierce the bread in a few places with a thin, sharp knife to allow the glaze to seep into the bread. This should make it moister and lemonier.

#4 Keto Blueberry Bread

We’re continuing on the sweet dessert side of keto bread here! Like the Lemon Loaf Bread, this contains an optional lemon glaze (definitely recommended!).

A loaf of blueberry bread.

There are more ingredients and a little more work in putting this recipe together, but it’s absolutely worth the effort. Like all the recipes we’ve looked at so far, keto Blueberry Bread is healthy and low-carb, an ideal dessert or snack.

This particular recipe makes about 10-12 servings, and since it’s made with natural ingredients and no preservatives, you can freeze it and keep it for a few months if necessary.


  • ½ cup Monk fruit Sweetener
  • 2 ½ cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 3 Eggs (large)
  • 1/3 cup Butter (melted)
  • ½ tbsp Gluten-Free Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ Xanthan Gum (optional, for texture)
  • ½ Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ¾ cup Blueberries (you can use frozen, but don’t thaw them before baking)
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Zest
  • 1/3 cup Powdered Sweetener (for the glaze)

Once we’ve got our formidable list of ingredients together, the rest is rather simple.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix the dry ingredients together: baking powder, sweetener, salt, almond flour, and xanthan gum.

Now add the eggs, butter, almond milk, and vanilla, and stir well until smooth. Then add the lemon zest. Gently fold in the blueberries. If you stir too much or too vigorously, you’ll crush the berries, and your whole loaf will be purple.

Pour the batter into a pre-prepared loaf tin, lined with parchment paper. You should have quite a thick batter.

Bake for 40 minutes. Remove the loaf from the oven, add a foil tent, and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until baked all the way through. Let the bread cool.

While the bread is baking, stir 1tbsp of lemon juice with powdered sweetener to make the glaze. Keep adding sweetener until your glaze is the right thickness for you.

Pour the glaze over the cooled loaf, and enjoy.

#5 Keto Garlic Cheese Bread

This recipe is every bit as stodgy, delicious, and cheesy as it sounds. This recipe makes about 10-12 servings and can easily be used as a main dish! It takes a few more ingredients a bit more prep time than some simpler keto bread dishes, but then, those dishes aren’t as cheesy and garlicky as this one!

This keto bread is almost like a pizza, with a much flatter loaf-shape and toppings. The recipe calls for almond flour, but you can use ½ cup of coconut flour if you prefer, and add 2 more eggs.


For the dough:

  • 1 ½ cups Almond Flour
  • ½ tbsp Gluten-Free Baking Powder
  • 1 packet Active Dry Yeast (approximately 2 ¼ tsp)
  • 2oz Cream Cheese
  • 3 cups Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 1 tsp Inulin Powder


For the toppings:

  • 1 ½ cups Mozzarella Cheese (ideally, shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Butter (melted)
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Italian Seasoning

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix the inulin, yeast, and warm water together, and set aside for about 15 minutes.

Mix the eggs, baking powder, and almond flour together. A food processor is recommended for this.

Take the cream cheese and mozzarella and melt together in a bowl, stirring to make sure it’s smooth. Be careful not to let the cheese cool. Add it to the food processor with the already mixed ingredients and blend. A dough should form once the ingredients are properly blended.

When the yeast is ready, add this to the dough. It should be just combined, don’t mix too much. You may need to let your dough chill for 15-30 minutes if it still feels sticky.

Now you’re ready to start rolling your dough. Form it into a ball, then roll it out, flattening the dough into a disc of about 7-inches wide and ¾ inch deep. If the dough is sticky after this, you might need to chill it for another 15 minutes.

Take a knife and cut rows in your disc, cutting almost all the way through, but don’t completely sever the dough. Cut more rows in the opposite direction to form squares.

For the toppings, mix the seasoning, garlic powder, and melted butter together. Brush the mixture thoroughly over the dough disc. Take the shredded mozzarella and stuff it evenly into the dough squares. Leave a border around the edge of the disc to avoid leaking when baking.

Bake the keto cheesy garlic bread for about 15-20 minutes, or until fully cooked. The dough squares should allow for cheesy, pull-apart bread. Enjoy!

#6 Keto Pull-Apart Bagel Bread

Just like the keto garlic cheese bread, this is a filling, savory recipe. It’s unique among the other traditionally shaped loaves; the dough is rolled into many small balls and baked together.

This gives it an interesting look and makes it practical to pull apart easily. It’s a great dish to serve at a party or gathering, and it’s especially fun for the kids to help you make!


For the dough:

  • 8oz Mozzarella (shredded)
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Butter (melted)
  • 1/3 cup Sour Cream
  • 6 tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ cup Unflavored Whey Protein Powder


For the Seasoning:

  • 1 tsp Dried Onion Flakes
  • 1 tsp Dried Garlic Flakes
  • 2 tsp Sesame Seeds
  • ½ tsp Coarse Salt
  • 2 tsp Poppy Seeds

Alternatively, you could use Everything Bagel Seasoning Blend.

Preheat the oven to 375F. You’ll want to prepare your baking tin ahead of time. Use a round, 8-inch metal pan, and put a small, ovenproof ramekin rim down in the center. This will give your bread its “bagel” shape. Grease it all thoroughly.

(If you’re making our own seasoning instead of the Seasoning Blend, simply stir all the ingredients together in a bowl until well mixed.)

Whisk the dry ingredients together: the whey protein, baking powder, almond and coconut flour, and garlic powder.

Melt the cheese until it can be stirred smoothly. Don’t allow it to cool, but add the dry ingredients mix over the melted cheese. Add the sour cream and the eggs, and stir the mixture thoroughly, kneading the dough against the sides of the bowl.

Now it’s time to roll our dough! Wet your hands to prevent the dough sticking, and roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Add the dough balls to the prepared baking tin.

Once there’s a layer of dough balls in the tin, brush some melted butter over the dough and sprinkle with seasoning. Keep doing this until all the dough balls are in the tin, then add some more butter and seasoning.

Tip: Reserve some of the butter and seasoning to add after the bread comes out of the oven.

Bake the bread for 20-30 minutes, until it’s golden brown. Allow to cool, then remove the ramekin from the center. Add the leftover butter and seasoning over the top. Now you have a delicious, bagel-shaped keto loaf!

#7 Keto Cinnamon Bread

Last but not least, we have a traditional keto cinnamon loaf. It’s perfect for breakfasts and desserts and looks and smells delicious.

This is another ideal bread for those with a sweet tooth. Be careful when marbling the cinnamon in the uncooked batter, as this should provide a “swirling” effect, where the cinnamon mixture goes through the loaf.

Don’t worry about the cinnamon flavoring not being even, as we’ll also add cinnamon to the bread batter.


For the batter:

  • ½ cup Lakanto Golden Sweetener
  • ¼ cup Sour Cream
  • ¼ cup Butter (softened)
  • 3 Eggs
  • ¼ cup Water
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 ¾ cups Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon


For the cinnamon swirl:

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Cream together the sweetener and softened butter until the mixture is light and fluffy, then whisk in the eggs.

When the mixture is well combined, add the cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and sour cream. Stir well. Then add the baking powder, water, and almond flour, and set aside.

For the cinnamon swirl, stir the cinnamon, sweetener, and butter separately in another bowl.

Pour half of the batter into a bowl. Then carefully drizzle over half of the cinnamon swirl mixture. Pour in the remaining cinnamon swirl and batter.

Next, we want to gently marble the mixture, so use a knife to carefully swirl through the batter. This will marble the cinnamon through the mixture, spreading the flavor and giving it the cinnamon “swirl” look.

Then bake the loaf for 40-55 minutes, or until it’s cooked all the way through. Allow to cool.

Then you have a delicious cinnamon swirl keto bread loaf, more like a cake than bread!

There are so many different keto bread recipes out there; it would be a shame not to try them out! These are popular household favorites and are simple and easy to make. Baking bread can be a fun and rewarding experience, not to mention a healthier eating choice.

Many of the keto bread recipes here are sweet, and they’ll give you that sugary kick without being full of additives and sugars. Many of the ingredients here, like butter, can be easily substituted for non-dairy options, and often (but not always), you can substitute coconut flour for the almond flour.

The possibilities are endless, so get baking!
