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 solution to make 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.

Ingredients

There are only 6 ingredients required for this recipe:

  • Coconut FlourCoconut flour is a healthy, taste 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 – chia seeds are superfoods that are loaded with nutritional benefits. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Instructions

  • 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.

Storage

  • 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.
Troubleshooting?
  • Bread is undercooked/too doughy: read the blog post above to see why this happens.

  1. If I would like to increase the slices to, for example 20 slices, how do I know how long do I need to bake the bread for?Will it still be 1 hour or do I need to increase the baking time?

    • I am not sure what you mean, if you are going to slice the same recipe into 20 slices, rather than 16, it doesn’t change the quantity of ingredients. Theerefore it won’t impact baking time. Anyway, I don’t recommend doubling up this recipe, it will never bake

  2. 5 stars
    It just came out of the oven. It deflated a lot. Am I supposed to let in cool while I’m the pan or take it out and let it cool on the cooling rack?

  3. 5 stars
    I made this recipe using a a thermomix, and made 12 rolls. It rose and was crispy on top and moist on the inside! It was PERFECT!!! Now I am making the loaf second time around. Will let you know how it turns out!

      Thank you, Carine! This bread is amazing. I found your recipe very easy to follow and the result is amazing. I have to wait the 3 hours for it to cool but took a small corner off to taste and I am so excited that I can eat bread on vegan keto. I am really looking forward to trying more of your recipes.

    Hi, this recipe looks great.
    Can I use peanut flour instead of almond flour?
    Getting almond flour shipped will take weeks and I would really like to try this now.
    Also, can I substitute peanut flour for almond flour for your other keto recipes?

  5. Hi, can I use peanut flour as a substitute for the almond flour? Iwanna make this but getting almond flour right now for me is hard. It will take weeks to ship it to me.

    Can I also substitute almond flour with peanut flour for your other recipes.

  6. Hi,
    I tried it once it was success. I made buns then, but now i want to make loaf. Do you think i can store my doughin fridge over night before baking? Or it will be ruined
    Thanks

    • I never tried this option but wouldn’t recommend that simply because the flours are highly sensitve to moisture. In the fridge they may absorb more moisture and the bread can be very moist. Hope it helps. Carine

    Hi, Carine, thanks for the answer.
    I’ll try to figure out if I can modify this recipe , or look for another one on your blog… My gut won’t tolerate coconut. I looked at sunflower seed flour bread , but there is coconut, too 🙁 … If you have any suggestions (recipe I can do with (no coconut, no eggs, and low carb), I would be sooooo happy to try it ..

    Thanks a lot ! Mirjana

    Hi,
    can the almond flour and the coconut flour be substituted with some other low carb options ? Like chickpea flour, flax seed flour, …? I’m allergic to coconut. Thanks.

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I’m on a low glycemic diet, vegan, yeast free and was dying for bread. I made the bread and dipped it in salt, pepper and olive oil as well as almond based cream cheese and it was heaven. I was so happy! Thank you!

  10. 5 stars
    Thank you for this recipe! I have done it onece. I made a few mistakes but it is edible (a few minutes in the toaster oven beofe eting helped). I will try again and for sure it will be even beter!

  11. Hello, thanks for this recipe. I want to know how much will be the quantity of psyllium husk in tablespoon measure? Thank you

    • I don’t provide the recipe in tablespoons or cups simply because this bread has no eggs and its extremely sensitive to quantities. Tbsp/cups are not precise and often the bread comes out too wet or too dry with this method. Please use a kitchen scale for this particular recipe. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

    Hi!! I tried this two days ago. My first attempt at baking bread so I was pretty nervous but it turned out great!! Only thing it was perfect when it came out of the oven but deflated a bit while cooling. Taste was fab though. Trying it a second time today so fingers crossed! Thank you so so much for this recipe, really well explained especially for a baking novice like me!

  13. Is the temp and cook time for fan mode/convection oven or a regular oven? I’m of the understanding that a regular oven takes longer and/or the temp needs to be higher. I have a regular oven and want to make sure I get the temp and time correct.
    Thank you

  14. Tried this recipe twice now, weighed everything and wet both times. Using whole husk psyllium. Wondering if I should cut the water? I like the taste but not interested in eating a wet lump.

    • If your bread is wet it means that you are missing fibers or it didn’t bake long enough. Try a different brand of coconut flour or husk. I like Now foods, works perfectly every time. Also, you can slice the bread and bring it to the toaster to save your loaf if too wet for now. Finally, if you don’t mind eggs in your bread you may have better result with my almond flour bread loaf recipe. Enjoy, Carine

  15. Hi, I tried out this recipe but my bread formed an outer crust on top which rose like a balloon and hence the middle remained uncooked and doughy even though I pricked holes using a skewer and put it back in the oven for 15 more minutes. What did I do wrong? Did I get the ratios of psyllium husk and chia seeds wrong?

      • Hi Carrine, I used whole husk and not the powder since you have called it out specifically in the notes section. I also measured the ingredients by weight and not by cups. As you have mentioned in a reply to another’s comment, I will try to reduce the amount of baking powder and see how the bread turns out. Also, can I reduce the amount of chia seeds since I didn’t like the texture of them in the bread?

        • You can reduce baking powder but none of the other ingredients. Chia seeds have a role in this recipe, it absorb moisture and give texture, if you decrease the amount the crumb while stay wet and gummy. Enjoy, XOXO Carine
