Best Keto Bread Recipe – No eggy taste

Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

In my opinion this really is the best keto bread recipe.  Even better than my others!

It’s funny to me this bread doesn’t quite look as great as the Daily Keto Bread, but yeah in my opinion I actually think flavour-wise and versatility this bread totally wins out.

The Best Keto Bread gets a big tick for flavour, the texture in your mouth is good, and toasting is bloody awesome.  Read on for some great keto bread variations.

Best Keto Bread Recipe Variations

I have successfully made this grain free bread recipe into burger buns, and pizza bases.  Basically I did them as a 45 g and 70 g ball that I flattened and pushed out to a large disc and cooked for around 15 minutes and then store in an airtight container until you want to use or freeze as easy to use bases.

I have to say my first test got eaten just topped with loads of butter and vegemite.  Sooooo good!

Keto Bread Consistency

Just an FYI on making this bread.  The dough is a dough not a runny batter like a lot of my other recipes.  It is stiff and needs some wet hands to push it gently and shape it in the tin before baking.  It works perfectly in a tortilla press for pizza bases or burger buns as well.

While there is rosemary in the recipe trust me when I say it doesn’t overpower or even seem wrong, even if eating with peanut butter or vegemite.  For the pizza bases I added mixed Italian herbs as well.

This bread is more dense and not unlike a gentler consistency of pumpernickel.  Just like pumpernickel, cut this bread very thin.  It still toasts amazing and works in any meal.

Megan’s tips on getting the perfect rise

  1.  Use the right size tin.  If you only have a larger tin then increase your mix size by half or double.  This will not only give you a fully risen loaf, but will ensure you do not end up with a flat dry loaf
  2. Measure your eggs.  As we all know eggs sizes are crazy and all weigh so different please ensure you have 520g of eggs.  Even if you have a whole dozen eggs in there to get to this weight, TRUST ME it will not taste eggy!
  3. Score your loaf.  If you deeply score the top of the loaf before placing in the oven this allows for the leavening and rise of the loaf4.Use Bobs Red Mill Baking Powder.  It is a double action and will help the rise of the loaf. Always check your baking powder is in date and is kept in a cool dry place
  4. Freshly ground flaxmeal works better in baking
  5. Almond meal can be substituted for sunflower meal.
  6. Coconut flour can be substitute for hemp flour.
  7. If you only have psyllium husks, please mill to produce a fine powder

Keto Bread Flavour

It is delicious!  No weird eggy taste, or nutty weirdness.  I think it is just lovely.  It has well and truly past the Dave test hence my need to do a double batch today, which by the way fits in the Thermomix® perfectly, just be sure to give it an extra knead to ensure it is properly mixed.

    So is it 1 net carb per slice?

  • Lindy says:

    Mine didn’t rise so well …. made entirely as directed. Any thoughts?
    Taste is brilliant though, going very nicely at the moment with mashed avocado and lemon pepper. Incredibly easy to throw together.
    To those who are asking – you can’t even taste the coconut, so don’t worry about subbing!

    • Megan says:

      Hi Lindy, 3 things really affect rise. Bobs Red Mill Double Action baking powder makes a HUGE difference. The eggs regardless of how many need to weigh 560g in total weight. Lastly pan size if you use a larger pan this can also affect the rise considerably. I don’t think it affects the taste at all but these are the main 3 things I find work better. (as a side not I also think fresh milled flaxseeds also help as well) Glad you like it, and I agree I taste no coconut flour in the mixture.

    Might be a silly question but are the eggs weighed with or without shells

    Oh wow, thanks a bunch Megan, a hit with my family! Even my 9 month old adored it! Def a keeper and will be sharing this with family and friends!💖

  • Lis says:

    Making this right now……. wish me luck 🙏🏼🙏🏼

  • Lesley says:

    Just wondering if this can be made in a bread maker at all?
    Thinking I may try and see if it works!

  • Rosalind S says:

    Suprised with so many eggs that it does not taste eggy

  • Kat says:

    I am confused reading all the comments! unfortunately it soooo tastes of eggs 🥴 where did I go wrong!? followed the exact descriptions ….

  • Don says:

    If you separate the eggs, and whisk the whites, you should achieve a lighter texture and therefore better rise….just my $0.02

  • Don says:

    Your answer is pretty ambiguous about the weighing of the eggs. Are the eggs weighed in the shell?
