A quick keto bread craving fix !

Calling all the bread lovers for this keto microwave bread recipe ! (are you ?) We are all missing a good sandwich at some point on keto. Let’s face it, bread is life. However, when the urge to eat bread comes we don’t have the patience to bake my  tasty keto bread loaf. So this 90 second keto mug bread is the solution. Even more, it is a life-saver.

What’s a microwave bread?

A microwave bread is simply a bread recipe baked in your microwave. Even though it looks simple, you won’t be able to use your regular bread recipe to make keto microwave bread. Microwave is a ultra fast cooking method and it can dry out food that doesn’t contains enough liquid. Consequently, you can’t use my keto bread roll recipe in the microwave. Indeed, the best way to make a 90 second keto bread is to use eggs as a binder. This will keep the bread soft, chewy and moist.

How to make your keto bread ?

Great news, making a low carb bread recipe in the microwave is easy. Everyone can make it with those 5 simple ingredients.

  • Almond flour or almond meal – both works but almond meal tend to dry out the mixture so it is recommended to use almond flour
  • Coconut flour – it is a keto bread coconut flour and almond combined to add the more real bread texture you dream of !
  • Egg – yes there is egg in this recipe. Check out my 90 second keto bread no egg if you are on a vegan keto diet

How to eat your bread ?

It should be noted that microwave bread must be toasted. Indeed, after 90 seconds in the microwave your keto bread is very soft, moist and airy. In order to create a delicious bread toast or sandwich you must either toast the bread or pan fry in butter. This will reveal all the bread flavor, add crispiness and also mask any slight egg flavor you may not want.

Tips to flavor your bread

Obviously this microwave bread recipe intend to be bland in order to be used in any way you like : sweet or savory. Like any regular soft bread from the store, it is a soft, airy bread with many possibilities! Some of my tips to boost your bread with flavor are the addition of dry spices, cheese or sweetener.

Let’s see below some of the great flavor your can create with this simple recipe.

  • Keto cinnamon toast – add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, pumpkin spices along with 1 tablespoon of sugar-free crystal. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter or coconut oil in a pan and fry the bread on both side. Serve with sugar-free maple syrup.
  • Italian bread. Give your 90 second keto bread some Italian flavor, add 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan
  • Garlic bread. Missing garlic bread? try to add 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and fry the bread in 1 tablespoon of melted butter

A keto sandwich bread

While this is one of the best keto recipes for breakfast yet it is also an amazing keto sandwich bread.  Who doesn’t love a club sandwich ? I am sure you do too! Not sure how to make a keto sandwich using this microwave bread recipe ? Here are some great keto sandwich ideas for anytime of the day

tasty keto bread

  • Breakfast sandwich – bacon, scramble eggs with cheese and scallion
  • Keto lunch sandwich – ham & cheese and spinach. Play with the cheese flavor, mix parmesan, edam, cheeddar or any cheese! add some mayonnaise and pickles if you like !
  • Keto vegetarian – mayonnaise, avocado, thin cucumber slices and baby spinach

Finally, if you are not fond of eggs in your keto bread recipe but still want a quick keto bread recipe, try my egg-free keto bread in the microwave. As a result the texture will be dryer, dense and closer to artisan bread.

How to store a keto bread microwave recipe ?

I hear you, you are busy and you want to make ahead some quick tasty keto bread. Contrary to oven baking, microwave cook your food so fast that the texture dry out very quickly if stored for too long. Clearly, it won’t taste as good the next day but it is still possible to make-ahead, 24 hour before. Those are my recommendation. First, cook the bread in the microwave and cool down on a rack until it each room temperature. Next, wrap your keto bread microwave recipe in plastic film to keep it moist and place in the fridge. Finally, the next day toast your bread in the toaster the next day or pan fry in butter.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup almond flour (24g)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (6g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda or 1/2 teaspoon baking powder if you don't like the taste of baking soda
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil (7.5 ml)
  • 1 large egg , beaten
  • 1-2 tablespoon water (30ml)

Some optional savory flavor

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika, garlic powder or oregano

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl,add almond flour, coconut flour and baking soda. Use baking powder if you don't appreciate the taste of baking soda.
  • Give a good stir with a whish or spatula to combine
  • Add in olive oil, water and beaten egg.
  • Whisk the ingredients together to form a bread batter. If it is too dry, add the water 1 tablespoon a time up to 2 tablespoons. The batter is liquid but thick and it should looks like a cake batter.
  • Set aside for 10 minutes to let the coconut flour fiber activate with liquid.
  • Spray oil on a microwave safe pan, I used a square ceramic pan size 6 inches x 6 inches (15 cm x 15 cm).
  • Spread the batter evenly into the pan.
  • Microwave on high for 90 seconds until the bread is cooked through. Add an extra 30 seconds if your microwave is not powerful
  • Remove from the microwave and loosen the sides of the bread using a sharp knife.
  • Place a chopping board or plate on top of your pan.
  • Flip over to release the bread. You may have to shake or 'bang' the pan slightly on its bottom to release the bread from the pan. Otherwise, lift out from the pan with a silicon spatula, be careful the steam it release is very hot!
  • Slice in half to form triangle shape.
  • Bring each bread slice into a toaster and toast on medium heat for 1 or 2 minutes depending on how you like your bread. The longer the crispier it will be.
  • Add your favorite toppings and enjoy straight away as a toast or sandwich.
No microwave? You can bake the bread for 8-15 minutes in a ceramic oven-proof baking pan at 180 C. Stop baking when a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread come out clean.
Storage: if you are using the microwave method, store for a maximum of 24 hours, in the fridge, wrapped in plastic wrap to keep the bread soft and moist. It is recommended to make this bread just before eating to enjoy all it is flavor and texture.

  1. Well, this time I tried the recipe again using baking powder instead of baking soda. What a difference! It tastes like a coconutty nutty healthy yummy bread. The recipe that had baking soda only tasted like baking soda. It literally tasted like eating straight baking soda but in bread form. My suggestion to those who have not tried this recipe yet is to make it with the baking powder. You will be glad that you did! On a scale of 1 to 10 it went from a minus 5 (baking soda recipe) to a plus 8 (baking powder recipe) I love it now, and I love that I can make it so fast and so easy when there is not a lot of time to cook.

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to retest the recipe with baking powder ! I am so happy that you now enjoy this simple bread recipe because it is such a life saver when you crave bread! Enjoy the recipes on the blog and thanks for this amazing comment that will help many others. XOXO Carine.


  2. This was so easy to make, I am craving bread on keto and this is my go-to recipe now. Thank you/Merci !your French follower


  3. Hi Carine
    I just madethis 90 seconds bread. I roasted It in the pan and topped with ham and cheese. It would be délicious but for one thing : I didn’t like the taste of baking soda( 1/2 teaspoon). Is It nécessary in the list of ingrédients and could I replace It by baking powder or xantham gum?
    Always a pleasure to taste your succulent recipes.

    • Hi ! I am glad you enjoy the recipe. As I replied to many you can always swap baking soda for baking powder if you don’t appreciate the flavor of it. Use 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder instead of the baking soda and it will be perfect. Enjoy the recipe on the blog and thank YOU so much for your lovely comment. XOXO Carine.

  4. I followed this recipe to the T. It came out wet, not dry, and took longer than the 150 seconds instead of 90 to cook (twice I did it for 30 seconds more) But worse than all of that, it tasted like baking soda! I am not a perfectionist in taste, but it tasted completely like baking soda so much that it felt like I was eating soap and even got worried that something else had gotten in there. It took over an hour, lots of water drinking and eating real bread to get the taste out of my mouth. This recipe looks so good on your blog so I was very disappointed. I went over the recipe 3 more times to see what I could have done wrong but it was all the same measurements. Are you sure there is no typo in this recipe? Are you sure it should be that much baking soda, or maybe there should be more flour? I had to throw the rest away because I could not offer it to my husband after what happened to me. There must be some mistake here.

    • The recipe is absolutely fine, I made this many times. Baking soda is not to the taste of everyone and you can always substitute for baking powder in a recipe. Make sure you are using 2 times more baking powder. So if the recipe calls for 1/4 teaspoon baking soda replace by 1/2 baking powder. If your batter is too wet it might be because your coconut flour is not fresh and it has lost its absorbent properties or your egg is very big. I recommend you add the water 1 tablespoon at a time and stop when it has a cake batter texture. The texture must be thick but liquid and wet. I hope you had better results next time. XOXO Carine.

    • Baking powder is basically made of 50% baking soda and additives that could includes starch. So if you want to aoid additives you use baking soda and use half the amount of baking powder. Not everyone enjoy the flavor of baking soda so it is up to you to use it or use double amount of baking powder instead. Enjoy the bread! XOXO Carine.

    • I might be that your egg is small and you are mixing liquid. Did you follow the recipe in grams for precision. Otherwise add a 1 tbsp of water or milk and it will come out great. XOXO Carine.

  5. Can you tell me the dimensions of the small square pan that is shown in the recipe video? The bread look delicious. As a type 2 diabetic I have to keep close control of my carbohydrate to keep my blood sugar in check. I am a new viewer to your web site and enjoy the recipes so far.

    • Hello! I am so glad you found my blog! All my recipes are low carb and diabetes friendly so I hope you will enjoy some of them. My pan is a 6 inches x 6 inches (15 cm x 15 cm). I slice the bread in half and the nutrition panel is for one half. Enjoy the recipe ! XOXO Carine.

  6. Is there a substitute for almond flour? I heard that growing almonds is very water intensive so I’m trying to not use almond products too much.
