How to make keto 90-second bread?
It’s very simple to make a keto microwave bread.
All you need to make yours are 6 simple ingredients:
Almond flour or almond meal – both options work very well. However, almond meals make the bread darker in color and a bit gritty in texture. If you are a keto beginner, I highly recommend ultra-fine almond flour to enjoy this keto bread 90-second recipe. Read how to choose your keto flours to become an expert!
Coconut flour – the combination of both flours creates the best bread texture, similar to wheat-based bread, without the carbs. If you don’t have coconut flour, you can replace it with more almond flour, but the bread crumb will have a softer, more cake-like texture.
Egg – this recipe needs an egg. It won’t work with egg replacers like flax egg or chia eggs. Try my egg-free 90-second keto bread recipe if you are after an egg-free keto bread recipe or on a vegan keto diet.
Baking powder to give your bread a little rise.
Olive oil or melted butter.
Combine the dry and wet ingredients
Now, in a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Then, add the beaten egg, water, and olive oil and whisk until a smooth batter forms.
Spread the batter in a microwave-safe bowl.

There is few different mugs or container you can use to bake your 90-second bread recipe.
A regular 12 oz coffee mug – this is the best way to make a small individual bread loaf with a cylinder shape. Then, slice the bread cylinder into 4 thin slices.
A microwave-safe square pan – to make triangle sandwiches as seen in my pictures. Cut the square in half to make triangles.
How to bake 90-second keto bread in a mug?
Check your microwave power settings
Most microwave runs at 900W, but some also run at higher power up to 1200W or lower intensity of 600W. Depending on the watts of the microwave, the regular 90 seconds of baking time won’t deliver the same bread texture.
In fact, when we call this recipe a 90-second microwavable low-carb keto bread recipe, it’s for a standard microwave setting of 900W!
Adjusting the baking time to the power of your microwave
If your microwave runs at:
900W – microwave the bread for 90 seconds.
600W – microwave the bread for 90 seconds, then add 10 extra seconds if the bread is still moist or wet in the center.
1200W – microwave the bread for 60 seconds, then check the consistency and add an extra 10 seconds if it is still moist or wet in the center.
Don’t know what the power of your microwave is? Play it safe and microwave the bread at the minimum baking time of 60 seconds. Then, check the texture and return to the microwave by 10-second bursts until the center is set, not wet or liquid.
Remember that it’s always better to underbake microwave bread. In fact, you can always bring it back to the microwave in small 10-seconds bursts. But if you overcook it, it will be very dry and not pleasant to eat.
Toast the bread
Now that the bread is cooked, it’s very soft. So you have two options to give some texture to the bread.
Toast in a bread toaster until crispy.
Create a sandwich and toast in a sandwich press, spreading butter generously on the outside bread slices.
Bacon and fried eggs to make a keto breakfast sandwich.
Cream cheese and bagel seasonings.
Tips to flavor your bread
Obviously, this microwave bread recipe intends to be neutral in flavor to be used in any way you like: sweet or savory.
Like any regular soft bread from the store, it’s 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 sweeteners.
Let’s see below some of the great flavors you 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 sides. Serve with sugar-free maple syrup.
Italian bread. Give your 90-second keto bread some Italian flavor, add 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of ground paprika, and 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan.
Garlic bread. Missing garlic bread? Try to add 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of 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, it’s also an amazing keto sandwich bread.

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

In another bowl, beat the egg with olive oil and water.

Spray oil on a tall 12 oz coffee mug or a microwave-safe pan. I used a square 6-inch x 6-inch ceramic pan.
Pour the batter into the coffee mug or spread evenly into the pan.
Microwave on high (900W) for 90 seconds until the bread is cooked through. If your microwave has a lower or higher power setting, read my post above for baking time recommendation.
Remove from the microwave carefully as it's hot. Then, use a sharp knife to loosen the sides of the bread and flip over a plate or chopping board.
If baked in a coffee mug, you end up with a cylinder shape, slice in 2 thick slices, or if made in a square pan, slice in half to make 2 triangles.
Bring each bread slice into a bread toaster and toast until crispy or make a sandwich, spread butter on the outside of the bread slices, and toast in a sandwich press or frying pan until crispy.
No microwave? You can bake the bread for 8-15 minutes in a ceramic oven-proof baking pan at 350F/180C. 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. This recipe serves 2 slices of bread. The nutrition panel is for one slice.
