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’s 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. Microwaving is an ultra fast cooking method and it can dry out food that doesn’t contains enough moisture. Therefore, 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 the 5 simple ingredients below.

  • Almond flour or almond meal – both work but almond meal tends to dry out the mixture so it’s recommended to use almond flour
  • Coconut flour – it’s a keto bread that uses coconut flour and almond combined to add the bread-like texture you dream of!
  • Egg – yes, there is egg in this recipe. Check out my 90-second keto bread with no egg if you are on a vegan keto diet
  • Baking soda to give your bread a little raise
  • Water

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 it in butter. This will reveal all the bread flavor, add crispness 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’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 sweetener.

Let’s see below some of the great flavors 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, it’s 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 any time 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, cheddar 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 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 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, 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-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 in the fridge. Finally, the next day, toast your bread in the toaster or pan fry in butter.

  • 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 silicone 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. 
This recipe serve 2 slices of bread. Nutrition panel is for one slice. One slice contains 3.2 g net carbs.

    • I live in New Zealand and I found this in my local supermarket. Otherwise you an bake this recipe in mug or ramekin and slice. It will make round slices perfect for a sandwich too. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

  1. Hi, I gave this a try – tastes great by the way. The only thing is when I entered the recipe into My Fitness pal (scanned the ingredients I used) the nutritional information differs hugely from yours, specifically the calories which for mine is 356 calories per slice. I realise different brands vary, but surely the caloric results shouldn’t double. Does this make sense to you?

    • My recipe serve 2 maybe you enter the whole recipe as 1 serving which explain why the calories on my fitness pal are two times mine. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine

    • I can find coconut flour in my regular supermarket here in New Zealand. It is sold next to regular wheat flour. In Europe I know you buy it from health food store or organic store. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

    • Thanks for trying my recipes ! I am French so English is my third language and always a big challenge to write in English. I will try to correct as much as I can. Thank you, XOXO Carine.

    Two thumbs up. Enjoyed EVERY bite. Have been looking forward to a sandwich, ticked all the boxes for us. I had a leftover roast meat , lettuce, tomato, cucumber and mayo. My partner cut his toast into bite sized portions, and had smoked salmon etc, and absolutely devoured his. Will be a repeat recipe in our book.

    Just made this today and WOW! I cannot have almonds, so the one substitution I made was using sunflower seed meal instead of almond flour and let me just say it still turned out beautifully! My husband was quite skeptical when hearing I was making bread in the microwave, but when he tried it he loved it…even more than standard rye bread. I’ve made several Keto mug bread recipes and truly love this one. Thank you so much for sharing.

    • I am so happy to read your comment and if it passed the hubby test it means a lot right ? 🙂 I didn’t try the recipe with sunflower seed flour so I am glad to hear it work. A great nut free keto bread options 🙂 Thanks again for trying my recipes, XOXO Carine.

    Tonight was my 4th time to make this. First time I made for my husband. I’m diabetic so I have to eat low carb, the husband isn’t. I decided to have egg frittata and ham for dinner and thought why not? Let’s have the keto bread. He LOVED it. Said it reminds him of crumpets1 Thanks you again for another great keto recipe.

    • I love when hubby gets on board especially if he doesn’t have to eat low carb! That is wonderful that you both can share the same food. Thanks for the lovely feeback. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.

  5. Hi! I tried the recipe yesterday but it crumbled a bit when I made a sandwitch. What could have gone wrong? I used a little more water in the recipe because it wasn’t as liquid as yours, and I baked it in a plastic container for 30 more seconds in the microwave. Oh, and I used baking powder.
    I also wanted to ask if I could use two egg whites instead of a whole egg, because I don’t like the eggy flavor so much. Actually, I am going to try it today and let you know the results, but if you have already tried it, I’d like to know how it came out. Thank you!

    • Sure 2 egg white should work but you shouldn’t bake more than 90 seconds and don’t add any extra liquid. It probably crumble because it was too dry as you cook your bread longer. Microwave dry out food very quickly, and an extra 30 seconds burst is actually a lot. Thanks for trying my recipes, XOXO Carine.

  6. In the nutritional facts it states 2 slices – 161 calories is that for 1slice or 2 slices
    (This recipe serve 2 slices of bread. Nutrition panel is for one slice. One slice contains 3.2 g net carbs.

    • Yes this recipe makes 2 slices and I provide the panel for only 1 slice simply because we all have different macro target. People on keto may want to enjoy only one slice while others on low carb may go for the whole recipe, 2 slices. Simply serve as much that you can fit in your macro and daily meal plan. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    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.

    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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
