This yeast-free Cassava Bread recipe uses cassava flour and a touch of almond flour to cut the carbs and keep the texture perfectly soft and sliceable for sandwiches.

Bonus, this cassava flour bread recipe is also gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo!

Cassava Flour Bread

What’s Cassava Flour?

Cassava flour is a gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free flour often used in paleo bread recipes.

It’s made from cassava roots, and it’s high in starch and carbs but a healthier option to wheat flour on a paleo diet.

Cassava flour can also be used to make delicious cassava pancakes.

Grain Free BreadGrain Free Bread

Is Cassava Flour Keto-Friendly?

Cassava flour is in a grey area on a keto diet. Let me explain why. On its own, cassava flour is a high-starch flour with 26 grams of net carbs per 100 grams.

It’s not too far from coconut flour (21 grams of net carbs per 100g).

As a result, you can’t make an entire bread using only cassava flour without topping 10 grams of net carbs per slice.

But, when used in small amounts and combined with other low-carb keto flours like almond flour, you can make cassava bread with only 5 grams of net carb per slice.

Cassava flour is a healthy grain-free flour that adds lovely real bread flour to your keto baking. So if you are after a swap to almond flour keto bread, try this cassava bread instead!

What’s Cassava Bread?

Cassava bread is a paleo bread recipe to serve as a savory bread for sandwich recipe or side to a healthy soup or keto salads.

The cassava flour bread is naturally dairy-free, but you can add some cheese to add a boost of savory flavor to your low-carb bread recipe.

How To Make Cassava Bread

Here I am going to share two options. First, a keto cassava bread option, using a mix of cassava flour and almond flour. The goal is to enjoy a bread that tastes like wheat flour but with way fewer carbs.

Next, a nut-free cassava bread recipe using only cassava flour. This raises the carbs but, if you are only on the look for grain-free or nut-free bread, that’s a good option.

How to make Cassava Bread


  • Cassava flour
  • Almond flour – simply replace the amount of almond flour with the same amount of cassava flour if you don’t mind the extra carbs and you only want a paleo bread recipe. Learn how to choose your keto flours.
  • Eggs – you can’t make vegan cassava flour bread. It’s way too dense.
  • Salt
  • Baking powder
  • Warm water
  • Olive oil

Pick a Savory or Sweet Option

Now, choose some flavoring below. If you want to make a savory bread for sandwich or side, add some:

  • Garlic powder
  • Italian herbs

Or for a sweet bread to use as toast with chia seed jam, use some of the below:

  • Stevia drops or sugar-free erythritol  – add 1/4 cup erythritol or 1 teaspoon vanilla stevia drops.
  • Cinnamon – add about 1 teaspoon.

Make The Paleo Bread Batter

In a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, add all the wet ingredients: eggs, water, olive oil, and beat on high speed until the eggs are lighter in color and foamy.

Stir in the dry ingredients:  cassava flour, almond flour, baking, powder salt, and spices, sweet or savory.

Stir gently with a spatula to keep the batter runny and fluffy.

The batter is very liquid, and that’s normal! Don’t try to thicken the batter by adding more flour, or the bread won’t be as light and airy.

Adding Flavors!

This cassava bread use 5 eggs, and some people won’t enjoy the flavor of eggs in their bread.

To cover the egg flavor, you can add in the batter some of the below ingredients, between 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of:

  • Grated cheese like cheddar or Emmental
  • Diced ham
  • Olives
  • Bacon bits

Baking The Bread

Transfer the bread batter into a 5-inch x 9-inch loaf pan lined with lightly oiled parchment paper.

Bake in preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) for 40-45 minutes on the center rack.

To check the baking time, insert a pick in the center of the bread if it comes out clean, you’re done!

Cool down on a rack for a few hours before slicing.


This cassava bread is delicious to make a low-carb breakfast sandwich, or if you didn’t add savory flavoring, a base for toast.

For a sweet keto breakfast, add some of the below on your bread:


This bread contains eggs, and it’s, therefore, better to store in the fridge. It lasts up to 4 days in the fridge or three months in the freezer.

To freeze the cassava bread, slice it first, then place it in a ziplock bag or airtight container and thaw a slice the day before at room temperature.

Rewarm bread in a toaster to add crispy texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Reduce The Egg Flavor In My Bread?

If you are sensitive to egg flavor in the bread, remove 2 egg yolks in the recipe or use eggs at room temperature, not cold. These decrease the egg flavor in the bread.

Plus, add some spices like garlic powder, grated parmesan, Italian herbs, or a low-carb sweetener of your choice.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 5-inch x 9-inch baking loaf pan with parchment paper. Slightly oil paper with olive oil. Set aside.
  • In a bowl of a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, beat all the wet ingredients: eggs, olive oil, water. Beat with the whisk attachment or a hand mixer on high speed for 90 seconds or until light, fluffy, and whiter in color.
  • Using a spatula, gently fold in the dry ingredients: cassava flour, almond flour, salt, and spices of choice – garlic powder, Italian herbs, or skip if you don't want a savory flavor in the bread! The batter should be thin and runny. That's normal.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle Everything bagel seasoning on top of the bread.
  • Bake in the center rack of the oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown on top and a pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool it down immediately on a rack, avoid big differences of temperature between oven and room, or the bread can deflate slightly.
  • Cool down for 3 hours before slicing.


  • Store in the fridge for up to 4-5 days or freeze slices in ziplock bags for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature the day before and rewarm in the bread toaster.

    20 Thoughts On Cassava Bread Recipe (Low-Carb)
  1. 5 stars
    Really enjoyed this recipe! Tastes great! But sorry…. couldn’t wait 3 hours to cut! 🙂 do you have a grain free recipie that makes a full size sandwich bread? Most I have found are only half as high as regular bread.

  2. 5 stars
    This bread is delicious and I found it very easy to make. It was however, gritty in texture. Can you advise why this might be?
    Thank you.

  3. Hi, my batter was thick and sticky as opposed to thin and runny like the recipe said. I measured everything accurately. What do you think caused that and how can I fix it? Thank you!

    • It looks like you either added too much flour, or used a coarse almond meal that is more liquid absorbent or used smaller eggs. Always measure flour by filling the cup, sweep top and don’t over pack flour in the cup. I hope it helps

  4. 5 stars
    Very easy and delicious. Thank you for sharing.the spices you can add are amazing. Appreciate recipes .
    Thank you 😊

  5. Thank you for your creative creations. I was so excited when I found cassava flour since my options on the AIP diet were very limited. Over time, however, I have realized that cassava lowers my thyroid. This is apparently not the case for everyone I know, but still something to watch.

  6. You have laid down the gauntlet! I’m gonna figure out how to make a fluffy vegan cassava bread! Thank you for the recipe. I have two gluten free nieces and I’m excited to make this!!

  7. 5 stars
    I really love your recipes. I made this bread with 2 tbsp of Swerve and 1 tsp of cardamome; it reminds me of the taste of pulla bread. So delicious and the texture is incredible. Thank you for your incredible recipes!!!!

  8. Have you ever used sesame seed flour to bake with? If so please give us a recipe.I love your blog and the recipes are great.
