What Is Keto Bread?
Keto bread is low-carb, diabetes-friendly bread made with low-carb flour and usually requires many eggs.
Therefore, most keto bread recipes have an eggy taste that many don’t appreciate.
The reason why keto bread uses so many eggs is simple. Low-carb flours are high in fibers, wheat-free, and starch-free. Starch and wheat usually bind ingredients in regular bread, forming a bulk.
To hold ingredients together, people often use eggs in keto bread recipes to create a bulky, soft, fluffy bread loaf. However, an egg is not the only way of making good keto bread loaves.
I am so excited to show you how you can actually make keto bread eggless!

How To Make A Keto Bread Loaf Without Eggs
As mentioned before, eggs are used in keto bread recipes to hold low-carb flour together.
But, I am here going to show you that this is not the only way to make keto bread.
The trick is to use a combo of natural high-fiber ingredients that will act like eggs in your recipe.
This coconut-flour-based recipe uses a combo of whole psyllium husk and chia seed that when in contact with lukewarm water, holds low-carb flour as eggs would do.
It results in the best keto bread recipe, soft and dense with no eggy taste.
There are only 6 ingredients required for this recipe:
- Coconut Flour – Coconut flour is a healthy, tasty keto-flour option that comes loaded with fiber and nutrients. It’s highly water absorbent and is essential for this keto bread’s texture.
- Almond Flour – Almond flour is my favorite low-carb flour because it’s about 7 times lower in carbs than all-purpose flour while behaving very similarly in baking recipes. Pick ultra-fine almond flour for the best results.
- Psyllium Husk – Psyllium husk is as close to pure fiber as it gets. It contains about 70% fiber and is a great way to replace eggs. It is, however, not a straight replacer for eggs, so recipes need to be purpose-made with husk. This recipe requires whole psyllium husk, not ground.
- Chia Seeds – You can use either white chia or black chia seeds.
- Baking Powder – this contributes to rising the bread dough.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Serving Keto Bread
This keto bread recipe is delicious to make:
- Breakfast toast – add mashed avocado on top or homemade chia seed jam or cream cheese and keto fruits like raspberries if you don’t have time to make jam.
- Sandwiches – use two slices of this keto bread stuffed with butter, cheese, cured meat, or crunchy raw keto vegetables. You can also toast the sandwich in a sandwich press and butter the outside slices for a crispy sandwich.
- French toast – dip the bread slices in beaten eggs and almond milk, then fry in butter. Serve with a pinch of ground cinnamon and sugar-free crystal sweetener.
Frequently Asked Questions
It’s not difficult to make keto bread without eggs. However, if you are new to the keto diet, there are a few things you must keep in mind.
1. Stick to the ingredients list – if the recipe calls for fine almond flour, don’t replace it with a coarser almond meal. Same for the whole psyllium husk, don’t use Metamucil fiber supplements in my recipes. This is not the same product as whole psyllium husk fiber. Metamucil is a husk powder that is not suitable for baking keto bread. It will turn food dry, purple, or blue.
2. Weigh ingredients – keto baking uses high-fiber flours. Too much or too little of it, even in tiny amounts, will impact the bread texture a lot. Therefore, cups are not precise enough to achieve the best result every time. In fact, when you measure ingredients in cups, it’s easy to add a little bit too much of one flour (it would dry out your bread) or miss some flour resulting in moist undercooked bread.
3. Practice. Keto baking is different from what you used for baking before. You need practice and time to learn how to bake with these new flours. Repeat the recipe, be precise. You will learn each time.
4. Find your favorite flour brands. Yes, all flour brands are different. For example, some almond flours are finer than others. Experiment with different brands until you find the one that gives the best outcomes for your keto bread. Also, remember that the most expensive brands are not necessarily the best ones. I personally use my supermarket brands to make this recipe at a very low price.
The slices of this keto bread are soft, with a compact, dense crumb.
This is a gluten-free, egg-free keto bread, so it will not rise much, and will not be that fluffy or airy because there are no eggs in the eggless keto bread.
It can be slightly moist if you did not weigh the ingredients properly or if you used coarse flour.
But this can be fixed by toasting your bread slices! The taste is very similar to a whole-wheat artisan bread with no eggy taste.
That is probably the question I get the most about egg-free keto baking. Experience shows me that doughy bread is always due to one of 3 things:
1. You didn’t weigh your ingredients – the wrong flour/water ratio makes the dough too moist. Weigh your ingredients, don’t use cups!
2. Your husk or almond flour is too coarse and doesn’t absorb moisture. Change brand, experiment until you find your favorite one.
3. Your oven temperature is wrong/too cold. Old ovens or conventional modes are less powerful than the fan mode. You can try to increase your oven temperature by 35°F (20°C), so bake this bread at 400°F (200°C) if your oven doesn’t cook well enough.
