Calling all the bread lovers with this new low-carb coconut flour bread recipe! Wondering how to make low-carb bread without eggs? I hear you.

There is nothing worse than an eggy taste in bread.

So this coconut flour bread recipe comes to the rescue! A dense, soft keto and eggless bread recipe, similar to my best keto bread, but with coconut flour!

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 FlourCoconut 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 FlourAlmond 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

Is Egg-Free Keto Baking Easy?

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.

What Bread Texture Should I Expect?

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.

Why Is My Keto Bread Doughy Or Not Cooking?

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.

  • Preheat oven 350°F (180°C), fan mode works the best and faster. Otherwise, use conventional baking mode. Line a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Measure all your ingredients carefully before you start. I highly recommend weighing your ingredients in grams or oz for precision rather than cups. If you use cups, make sure they are packed, leveled up using flour with no lumps.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  • Add apple cider vinegar and lukewarm water (think hot bath temperature, cold water won't activate the fiber in the flour, and the ingredients won't bind)0
  • Combine with a spoon at first. It will be very liquid and will dry out as you go. After 30 seconds, the dough is moist, not liquid, and slightly crumbles apart. Knead the dough, press/squeeze with your hands for at least 1 minute, or until you can form a ball.
  • Form a dough ball and set it aside on the benchtop for 10 minutes to let the fiber absorb all the water and hold the ingredients together.
  • Now the dough should be soft, elastic, and slightly moist but should hold perfectly together.
    Shape a cylinder, bread loaf shape. Don't press the dough too much. It's a gluten-free loaf, it won't rise, and the shape you give will be the shape you get. If you press too much, it will be very dense, doughy.
  • Another option is to shape 14 small buns to make bread rolls. If so, bake on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. It will bake faster – only 35 minutes on the bottom rack.
  • Place the loaf onto the prepared loaf pan covered with parchment paper.
  • If cracks appear on top, wet your fingers with water and massage the top of the bread to fix cracks. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds or poppy seeds to decorate (optional).
  • Bake on the bottom rack of the oven (first rack from the bottom) for 45 minutes then switch to the middle rack for 15 extra minutes. You can add a piece of foil paper on top of the loaf if the color gets too brown.
  • Insert a skewer in the middle of the bread to check the texture. It should come out dry with no or very few crumbs on it.
  • Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 4 hours or overnight before slicing.

How to serve

  • The texture is dense, soft, and can be slightly packed or moist at the bottom if you press the dough too much or your husk is too thick (change brand next time for a better result!). If so, toast the bread slices to add some crispiness and dry out. Otherwise, serve directly as a sandwich bread with butter, avocado, spinach, lettuce, chicken, or cheese.


  • Store up to 3 days in the pantry or fridge. Slice when needed to keep the bread moist.
  • Slice into 14 slices and freeze the slices in a zip lock bag.
  • Defrost the day before and toast before using it.


Net carbs per slice: 3.6g for 14 slices in the loaf (9 inches x 5 inches).
Psyllium husk: don’t use Metamucil fiber supplements in this recipe. It’s 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.
  • Bread is undercooked/too doughy: read the blog post above to see why this happens.

    303 Thoughts On The Best Keto Bread Without Eggs

  1. 4 stars
    This is the best keto loaf so far! But mine isn’t rising at all, not sure if it’s meant to- but wondering why. Thanks

  2. I make all of my GF breads in cast iron pans. Do you think this would also work in a cast iron pan? Just shape it and lay on parchment paper in the 8″ preheated pan. Same temperature and bake time?

    I just about cried, when I realised my phone had lost this recipe which I cooked yesterday. I’m not well off at the mo, and throwing out the last four loaves from previous recipes has not been fun. I cannot believe what you’ve achieved here with this recipe, despite so much advice online to not make bread with egg replacements. This is sooooooooo close to what I want, I added a few things to make it perfect for me!!!! Thank you so much! I just want to save money by making my own bread and after weeks of trying I finally can. I’ll list the things I did because it’s quite interesting and I did get it to rise more than any of the other recipes which were supposed to rise!

    So, I like oat fibre (not oat flour) and it’s zero carbs. I also like lupin flour, and fancied trying a flour blend. I wanted yeasty bread to fix my cravings. It all worked! But, I need less oat flour and less psyllium husk to balance out the 2. eggs.

    In place of the almond entry, I made a blend of

    1oz oat fibre
    2 large tbsp almond flour
    and made up to the original weight listed using lupin flour.

    2 well whisked large eggs

    1tbsp butter

    7gm fast acting yeast

    2 tsp sugar for the yeast and because I was desperate for it to rise so may not be that much in future.

    I used only 65gm chia seeds

    Next time I will reduce the oat fibre , it can create a cotton feeling if too much and highly absorbant so the loaf was too wet, but only a little bit. I’m loving it toasted. I’ll increase the lupin and consider reducing some psyllium.

    The bread raised! A good chunck! I placed it in 30°C for half an hour. I know I changed it a lot but it’s just such a good recipe to base it from.

  4. 5 stars
    A game changer for me! More cake than bread, I left out the sweetener and used 1/4 tsp xanthan gum instead of physillium husk. I can no longer eat scones and other cakes, but this is now my ‘go to’ as a dessert or tea staple. I look forward to experimenting with toppings and fillings. Thank you!

  5. Can i add a yeast wash (2 1/4 tsp ) as in the yeast bread recipe. That owner has egg this doesn’t . If so what proportions do i need to adjust other ingredients ie liquids
    Thank you

  6. 5 stars
    I can’t make enough of this delicious bread.
    My nephews aged 9&11 devour it and even ask me to make some to take home.

  7. Hi! Is it possible for you to share the brands that you use for the flours and psyllium? I tried once with ground psyllium and it was purple and wet. I purchased whole psyllium instead, weighed my ingredients this time, and it was the correct color but still very wet and dense- I cooked over the recommended time and it was still so gummy and collapsed.i also am at 7K feet elevation so I’m wondering if that is changing the baking as well. But it wasn’t the correct texture when mixing, so I think it may be a brand thing? Thx!

  8. I’m in South Africa anna just want to check my conversions, do you work on 1 cup = 250ml? I’m asking because here 1/4cup is 60ml but the recipe reeds to 2 1/4 cups as being 530ml instead of 560ml. This recipe looks fantastic and i’d love to make our today

  9. 4 stars
    I made the bread and it turned out great! very close to normal bread.
    I am wondering whether I could mix in some mixed seeds next time? to make it as a seeded bread
    thanks for the great recipe

  10. 5 stars
    The easiest and delicious bread recipe. I made small rolls. The texture was really good , soft. One thing I need to figure out that the rolls started to rise while cooking, they were round, but after I took them out of oven, they collapsed and became more flat. Is that expected? Regardless , I love the texture and taste. .

  11. 5 stars
    Hey, thanks for a great recipe! Love flavor and texture! Had to use flax seed meal because I couldn’t find psyllium husks, and ended up to wet to form a ball so I had to knead in a little more coconut flour. Came out awesome, even the “I’m not doing keto” husband thinks it’s good, and that’s high praise indeed!

  12. 5 stars
    I am French and I love your recipes
    This bread is just awesome!!
    In France we are behind on everything keto
    Fortunately, I read and speak English, it helps me a lot.
