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 bread is the solution. Even more, it’s a life-saver.
What’s a microwave bread?
A microwave bread, or 90-second keto bread because it cooks in 90 seconds, 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 contain enough moisture.
Therefore, you can’t use my keto bread roll recipe in the microwave. Indeed, the best way to make a keto 90-second bread is to use eggs as a binder. This will keep the bread soft, chewy, and moist.
What are the ingredients in the keto 90-second 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!
And that’s it, only 5 simple ingredients (water excluded) for a dairy-free keto microwave bread!

How to make the 90-second keto cake?
The title says it all, it only takes 90 seconds to bake it in the microwave.
But before that, you have to mix the ingredients.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl
Add the eggs, water, and olive oil and whisk.
Set aside for 10 minutes
Spread the dough on an oiled microwave-safe pan
Microwave for 90 seconds
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 intends to be neutral in flavor 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 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 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
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 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-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 whisk 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 look 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 6-inch x 6-inch ceramic pan size.
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 releases is very hot!
Slice in half to form a 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 serves 2 slices of bread. Nutrition panel is for one slice. One slice contains 3.2 g net carbs.
