I have a new favourite low carb bread recipe and it is by far this one! It is so like the real thing it is just not funny!

Let’s start by addressing that this low carb bread recipe does contain gluten. So for those of you who cannot tolerate it or choose not to consume any gluten this keto recipe is totally out for you.

Since starting blogging keto I have had my share of people telling me what is or is not keto foods. Keto is actually based on the state of ketosis right? Eating a very low carb diet to maintain a ketones in the blood is “being keto”. This recipe still suits that lifestyle but this bread does contain grain.

The low carb bread only has 1g net carbs per slice, based on 20 slices per loaf, or 2g net carbs per roll, based on a 10 x 60g rolls from one batch of this recipe.

Originally inspired by Deidres Bread Maker Bread, Keto.luna, and She Calls Me Hobbit this is easily one of the best low carb bread recipes I have tried.

  1. Activate the yeast. The yeast I use is just the dried stuff you can buy in every supermarket. Activate it in warm water with the inulin. Inulin (or sugar) helps to activate the yeast and help give great rise to this keto bread.
  2. Cover the bowl or jug you are activating it in with a cling film and silicone mat if you have one. If you don’t wrap it in a towel and place in the warmest place in the house until it thick and foamy (it should double in size). If the yeast does not activate throw it out and start again. It will not all of sudden rise if you place it in the bread. Yeast does have an expiry date.
  3. When adding all your ingredients never add the yeast near the salt. Salt kills yeast. If you add your salt after the eggs and flours then pour the yeast starter aver the top this is enough to separate the two and not kill your rise.
  4. After kneading for 5 minutes (this helps to activate the gluten) flatten out into a rectangle the same width as your tin. Roll the dough over into loaf shape. Place into bread tin, seam side down and cover and leave to prove in warm place in the house. Bread should rise above the tin edge before baking. Leave until it has risen. This can take longer in colder weather.
  5. Bake then cool on wire rack before slicing and serving.

There are some specialty ingredients in this recipe. I have sourced them all from iHerb as it was the most convenient and all in the one place. Click here to see my entire cart. Many of these ingredients have NO substitutes so please don’t ask what they can be changed with.

  1. Inulin is prebiotic insoluble fibre sourced from plants. It has sweet properties naturally occurring and can be used to feed and activate yeast as well as be used in baking and sweets. It has around 2.7g carbs per 5g and is around a third of the sweetness of sugar.  Other sweeteners like xylitol and erythritol will not activate yeast. However if you do use sugar or honey the carbohydrates will be eaten by the yeast thus reducing carbs.
  2. Oat fibre is the hull of the oat ground into a fine powder. It is all fibre and hence, the no carb value. It has a nice fine powdery consistency that works well in this bread.
  3. Vital Wheat Gluten a natural protein found in wheat that is high in minerals and low in carbs. Vital wheat gluten has no substitutes and creates beautiful texture low carb breads.
  4. Golden flax meal a delicious tasting meal that adds earthiness to this recipe. Substitute more oat fibre or almond meal if you don’t have it, but it is recommended.

It is so simple to make this low carb bread recipe.

  1. Activate yeast
  2. Mix and knead for approximately 5 minutes (if dough sticks to your hands add more Vital Gluten Flour)
  3. Rest and allow to rise (this depends on how cosy it is – leave longer if need be to get the right amount of rise)
  4. Bake
  5. Eat like any normal bread.

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon inulin
  • 7 g yeast (2-3 teaspoons)
  • 2 eggs room temperature large eggs
  • Pinch salt flakes
  • 2/3 cup golden flaxmeal (80g) or pepita meal (if you do not like the flaxseed taste)
  • 1/2 cup oat fiber (50g) click for supplier see blog post for substitutes
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten flour (180g) click for supplier
  • 70 g butter cubed



  • Mix inulin and yeast into water and cover with cling film and a silicone mat and leave in a warm place until yeast activates. This can take 20-40 minutes.
  • Add all ingredients to mixer, including activated yeast. Using dough hook attachment knead dough for minimum 5 minutes (dough will be smooth, soft and supple and not wet)
  • Stretch dough out to large rectangle roughly as wide as your loaf tin. Roll dough over lengthwise to form a roll. Place into loaf tin seam side down.
  • Cover loaf with clean towel or silicone mat and leave in warm place for approximately 1 hour until loaf has risen.
  • Preheat oven to 170℃. Line a 23cm x 13cm loaf tin or up to 900g Mackies tin
  • Bake 40-45 minutes. Cool on wire rack.


  • Mix inulin and yeast into water and cover with cling film and a silicone mat and leave in a warm place until yeast activates. This can take 20-40 minutes.
  • Mix all ingredients to mixer, including activated yeast 5 minutes/dough setting. Follow from step 2 above.



1. This bread can be frozen.
2. Oat Fibre is zero net carb and zero calories
3. Vital Gluten is high protein and low carb. Derived from the protein found in the endosperm of wheat this flour does contain gluten.
4. This recipe makes approximately a 600g loaf or 10 x 60g bread rolls. For rolls; roll into shape and rest to rise the same as the loaf. They take only about 20 minutes to bake in the oven.
5. While I have this loaf baked in a small loaf tin you can however cook this in a tin up to a 900g loaf tin and still get a good rise and more yield (but not as high).

    I’m trying this out in my bread maker right now; fingers crossed it comes out ok! I had quite a dilemma trying to decide if I needed to use the white or grain option on the bread maker settings; I ended up going for the white option and hoping for the best.

    • Renee says:

      How did it go in the bread maker Loise?

    • Anonymous says:

      I would love to know your results, my bread maker has been collecting dust for a few years now would love to be able to use it again.

      • Louise says:

        It did not rise enough to be light and fluffy like I wanted. I have seen others have had better results than me; I think I need to activate the yeast first and find a setting that gives more kneading. I have ordered a loaf tin and will try again in the oven.

    This is the BEST low carb I have ever made! I’ve just finished my first leaf and will definitely be making it again!

    This is a game changer for me, I’m so excited. Yes you have to buy some different ingredients, but the list Megan suggests from IHerb will make many loaves. I made this bread and 5 days later it was still fresh and soft. It freezes well, it toasts beautifully, it makes awesome sandwiches. It tastes just like normal bread and is so easy to make. You won’t be sorry investing in these ingredients. ❤️ Thank you for such an awesome recipe Megan, this weekend I am making it again and a batch of rolls for burgers 🍔

    • Megan says:

      That is so awesome to hear Caroline. The ingredients do make a load of bread don’t they. So glad you are enjoying eating bread again.

    Yummo – and it’s worth playing around and re-doing a few times to get it just how you like it. I had sure missed toast with an egg on it for a few years! Excellent game changer thanks Megan!
