Keto Soul Bread is a winner all round! 

A keto bread that is very easy to make. It isn’t terribly expensive and it is pretty damn great for toast and sandwiches. What’s more is this is one keto loaf that is safe for the school lunchbox and playground. A delicious nut free bread recipe!

If you have been searching for the perfect low carb bread recipe that is grain free and suitable for the ketogenic diet and nut-free lunchbox recipe then look no further.

Dietary Variations of Soul Bread

  1. Egg Free I have yet to trial this for an egg free bread recipe I am sure it would work perfectly with some whipped aquafaba.
  2. Dairy Free – swapping the whey protein for pea protein, cream cheese for this fabulous dairy free cream cheese recipe and the cream for coconut yoghurt for the cream. Where this is a will there is a whey…I mean way!
  3. What is great is that this loaf is already a nut free bread recipe, grain free, gluten free, sugar free, and seed free. No bits! The kids will love it!

This recipe is just a simple adaptation of Souls Song – Soul Bread.

It is crunchy on the outside and soft in the centre.  A great bread to add a slab of butter and a scrape of Vegemite. Also fabulous for a cheese and tomato toastie!

Soul Bread Super Star Ingredients.

Before you ask Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) should not be substituted. WPI keeps the bread low carb, high protein, and actually helps provide the structure of the bread.

Bob’s Red Mill Double Acting Baking Powder is seriously the magic I sprinkle in many of my baked recipes. In baking this kind of baking powder produces some bubbles when the ingredients are mixed. THEN most of the rising occurs once heat is applied as the powder produces more bubbles under the heat. I get this product through Elite Health Supplements.
