Light and fluffy and great for grilled cheese


Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons inulin or maple syrup or honey to feed the yeast
  • 1/2 cup water lukewarm between 105-110F
  • 1-3/4 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup golden flaxseed meal finely ground
  • 1/4 cup whey protein isolate
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk finely ground
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum or 4 teaspoons ground flaxseed meal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 3 egg whites at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed unsalted butter or ghee, melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Directions

  1. LIne a 8.5 x 4.5 loaf pan with parchment paper (an absolute must). Set aside.
  2. Add yeast and honey (or any of the sugars above) to a large bowl. heat up water to 105-110F, and if you don’t have a thermometer it should only feel lightly warm to touch. Pour water over yeast mixture, cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 7 minutes. The mixture should be bubbly, if it isn’t start again (too cold water won’t activate the yeast and too hot will kill it.)
  3. Mix your flours while the yeast is proofing. Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, whey protein powder, psyllium husk, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar and ginger to a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
  4. Once your yeast is proofed, add in the egg, egg whites, lightly cooled melted butter (you don’t want to scramble the eggs or kill the yeast!) and vinegar. Mix with an electric mixer for a couple minutes until light and frothy. Add the flour mixture in two batches, alternating with the sour cream, and mixing until thoroughly incorporated. You want to mix thoroughly and quickly to activate the xanthan gum, thought he dough will become thick as the flours absorb the moisture.
  5. Transfer bread dough to prepared loaf pan, using a wet spatula to even out the top. Cover with a kitchen towle and place in a warm draft-free space for 50-60 minutes until the dough has risen just past the top of the loaf pan. How long it takes depends on your altitude, temperature and humidity – so keep an eye out for it every 15 minutes or so. And keep in mind that if you use a larger loaf pan it won’t rise past the top.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F while the dough is proofing. And if you’re baking at high altitude, you’ll want to bake it at 375F.
  7. Place the loaf pan on a baking tray and transfer gently into the oven. Bake for 45-55 minutes until deep golden, covering with a lose foil dome at minute 10-15 (just as it begins to brown). Just be sure that the foil isn’t resting directly on the bread.
  8. Allow the bread to rest in the loaf pan for 5 minutes and transfer it to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely for best texture – this is an absolute must, as your keto loaf will continue to cook while cooling! Also keep in mind that some slight deflating is normal, don’t sweat it!
  9. Keep stored in an airtight container (or tightly wrapped in cling film) at room temperature for 4-5 days, giving it a light toast before serving. Though you’ll find that this keto bread is surprisingly good even without toasting!

The Best 90 Second Keto Bread

The Best 90 Second Keto Bread (Not Eggy)

  • Servings: 3
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons whey protein isolate
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2-5 teaspoons erythritol or swerve to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or heavy cream
  • Special Equipment
  • microwave-safe mold or ramekin

Directions

  1. Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, whey protein, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined, set aside. Note: feel free to make the flour mix ahead in a large batch and simply measure out 1/2 cup + 6 Tablespoons per bread.
  2. Add egg and sweetener to a large bowl and beat with a whisk or electric mixer for 1 minute or two until airy and lighter in color. With the mixer on, add in the apple cider vinegar and butter.
  3. Add in the dry flour mixture in two parts, alternating with the sour cream. Continue to mix for a minutes until fully incorporated and elastic, the batter will thicken as you mix (think almost cookie dough texture).
  4. Transfer the batter to a microwave-safe dish or mold (use either a large one or divided into 3 ramekins), pressing down and smoothing out the top with a wet fingertip.
  5. If you divide the dough in 3 you’ll cook the bread for 90 seconds on high, but if you cook it all together you’ll want to do 150 seconds (2-1/2 minutes). Time can vary a lot in the microwaves, but to give you an idea mine is 1000 watts. Either way, it’ll come out looking pale and spongy (and not very appetizing at all). But worry not, just wait for it to cool down until just lightly warm (it continues to cook as it cools). Then you’ll definitely want to give it a good toast to get some texture on.
  6. Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days or in the freezer for a couple months. Serve warm with a pat of butter.

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1 cup pork rinds, crushed – your choice of flavor
  • 3 eggs, beaten

Directions

  1. Slice the onion in 1/4″ slices and rinse. Separate the rings carefully. Save the smaller ones for other dishes.
  2. Dip rings in a bowl of beaten eggs, wait for remainder of egg mixture to drip off back into the bowl.
  3. Coat the rings in your choice of crushed pork rinds.
  4. Dip into egg mixture again.
  5. Coat rings in pork rinds again.
  6. Place in air fryer at 380F for 5-7 minutes.
  7. Tip: Use one egg at a time. You do not want to saturate the egg mixture with the pork rinds for the last pieces of onion rings. Also watch out for maltodextrin on the nutrition labels for some of the pork rinds (especially the hot/spicy ones).
