Recipe Review - Best Keto Bread


Yesterday I came across this bread recipe and video on the Keto Connect website HERE. I like that it doesn't call for any weird specialty ingredients and I had everything on hand to make a loaf today. I did have a couple of concerns though. I'm not keen on low carb breads that taste really eggy, especially when toasted. I don't like that burnt egg flavor at all. My other concern was the fact that the recipe calls for three teaspoons of baking powder. That seemed like an awful lot to me and I know that baking powder can give baked goods a bitter after taste sometimes. I looked through a few of my recipes to see how much baking powder they called for and made the decision to cut back the amount of baking powder from three teaspoons to just one teaspoon. I'm happy to report that it didn't need more than one teaspoon for it to raise properly. My loaf looks pretty much like the one in the video.


I didn't make my batter in a food processor because I'd rather wash a couple of beaters and a bowl. I also thought I'd deflate the eggs whites less by folding them in rather than processing them.


I got 22 thin slices from my loaf but I think I might slice it even thinner next time. It took a little too long to toast it and the crust started to burn before the center got toasted well enough. I got better browning by making a grilled cheese sandwich but the untoasted part of the bread was a little too soft and spongy so I think it would have been better had it been thinner. Another reason to slice it thinner is because the bread is super filling. The slices may look small compared to commercial bread but they're at least twice as filling.


This is a very nice, neutral flavored bread and it doesn't taste too eggy even though it has six eggs in it. It also tasted pretty good toasted except for the black bits on the crust.

    1. Hi Mary-Ellen. I used an 8x4" pan as directed in the recipe. They also mention the pan size in the video. That's the slightly smaller loaf pan size. I'm pretty sure that full-size ones are 9x5"
