What’s A Keto Blueberry Bread?

Keto Blueberry Breads are low-carb pound cakes made with keto-friendly flours and low-carb sweeteners.

They combine the taste of a classic pound cake with minimal carbs, which is the hallmark of a keto diet.

I really believe this is the best keto blueberry bread recipe ever. In fact, the combo of lemon juice, fresh blueberry, a pinch of ginger, and toasted sliced almonds works like magic.

The texture of this keto blueberry bread with almond flour is moist and soft like a traditional French blueberry breakfast cake.

How To Make Keto Blueberry Bread

All you need to make this keto blueberry cake are a few simple ingredients and just 15 minutes.

Let’s see what you need to prepare this lovely moist keto blueberry lemon bread:

  • Almond flour – I recommend fine almond flour and not almond meal for the best result. Almond meal is made with unpeeled almonds. It gives a gritty texture to cakes. Learn more about keto-friendly flours.
  • Coconut flour – since this blueberry bread is keto, it is made with coconut flour and almond flour. I found the combo of both almond and coconut flour to deliver the best texture. So don’t replace coconut flour with almond flour!
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – I love a good Monk fruit and erythritol blend, but you can also use pure erythritol crystal or even xylitol in the same amount. Learn how to choose your keto sweeteners!
  • Eggs – make sure you use large eggs at room temperature.
  • Coconut oil – melted, make sure your coconut oil is not burning hot, or it would cook the eggs!
  • Lemon juice – I love a light touch of lemon in my blueberry bread. If you don’t feel like it, you can use orange juice, but it brings more carbs!
  • Vanilla
  • Ground ginger – just because lemon and ginger are made to be together! It is optional though, don’t use it if you are not a fan of ginger.
  • Xanthan gum or guar gum – this makes the bread hold together really well. Don’t skip for the best results.
  • Blueberries – fresh or frozen, blueberries are a low-carb fruit.

Making The Batter

Start the keto blueberry bread batter by combining the eggs and sweetener in a large mixing bowl.

Beat them with an electric beater for 30 seconds until they are well combined.

Pour the dry ingredients into another large mixing bowl: almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and ground ginger.

Make sure there’s no flour lump before pouring the egg mixture into the dry ingredients.

Add melted coconut oil, lemon juice, and vanilla.

Stir the pound cake batter with a silicone spatula or a wooden spoon until it is well distributed.

Add the fresh blueberries and incorporate them gently so they keep their shape and integrity.

Cooking The Bread

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

Bake the blueberry bread for 60 to 75 minutes in the oven preheated to 350°F (180°C).

Tip: Add Foil After 20 Minutes

Add a piece of aluminum foil on top of the pan after 20 minutes of baking time to prevent the top from browning.

Let the blueberry bread cool down for at least 30 minutes in the loaf pan before taking it out.

It allows the bottom of the bread to finish baking.

Pull it out of the pan and let the keto blueberry bread cool down on a cooling rack for 3 hours before slicing it.

Storage Tips

This blueberry pound cake can be stored in the pantry for up to 3 days, in an airtight container.

You can also freeze bread slices in an airtight container.

Defrost them the day before on a plate at room temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use frozen blueberries in my lemon blueberry bread recipe?

Sure, you can use frozen blueberries or fresh blueberries. Both options work perfectly. However, frozen blueberries may add some more liquid to the batter.

The result is a softer keto blueberry cake but as good!

How Many Carbs Are In Blueberry Bread?

Classic blueberry bread contains upwards of 30 grams of carbs per slice.

This low-carb version only contains3.9 grams of net carbs per slice.

Allergy Swaps

If you have food allergies, you can do the following substitutions:

  • Xanthan Gum: replace it with Guar Gum.
  • Coconut Oil: Swaps it with melted butter.
  • Blueberries: though it won’t be a blueberry bread anymore you can swap them for any other fresh or frozen berries.

Serving Low-Carb Blueberry Pound Cake

This lemon blueberry bread recipe is very much inspired by my keto lemon pound recipe.

This recipe has a similar buttery-pound-cake texture to my previous lemon cake recipe.

However, the addition of spices, crunchy sliced almonds, and blueberry make the whole bread different and delicious for breakfast.

Ingredients

Optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a loaf 9-inch x 5-inch pan with a piece of parchment paper. Lightly oil the paper to make sure the pound cake doesn't stick to the pan. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat eggs and sweetener for 30 seconds until combined. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and ground ginger (if you like ginger).
  • Pour the beaten egg mixture, melted coconut oil (not hot, or it will cook your eggs), lemon juice, vanilla onto the flour blend. Stir with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  • Stir in fresh blueberries and transfer the blueberry bread batter onto the prepared loaf pan.
  • Sprinkle some sliced almonds on top of the bread if desired and slightly press them on the top to stick.
  • Bake for 60-75 minutes, making sure that you add a piece of foil on top of the loaf pan after 20 minutes to prevent the top of the bread from burning.
  • Check the baking process after 60 minutes. Remove the piece of foil, insert a skewer in the center of the bread. If the skewer comes out clean or with few crumbs on it, it is cooked. You can remove the loaf pan from your oven. Otherwise, bring back the piece of foil on top of the loaf and keep baking by 10 minutes burst, checking every 10 minutes up to 75 minutes.
  • Cool down in the loaf pan for 30 minutes, then lift out the blueberry bread from the pan by pulling on the pieces of parchment paper.
  • Cool on a rack for 3 hours or overnight before slicing. It is a crucial step to make sure the bread doesn't fall apart when you slice it.

Storage and freezing

  • Store in the pantry for up to 3 days, in an airtight container.
  • Freeze the bread sliced in an airtight container. Defrost the day before on a plate at room temperature.
Net carbs: 3.9 grams per slice, including sliced almonds on top.

    85 Thoughts On Keto Blueberry Bread
    1 2 3
  1. HI there. I’ve just made this recipe and typed the ingredients into cronometer so I can add it to my daily totals a portion at a time but cronometer came out with the same calories per portion but 12.7g net carbs per portion – just wanted to check that 3.9g is correct?

    • There might be an ingredient in your application that has been registered with the wrong amount of carbs or fiber. It can be also because your app count carbs from erythritol (sugar free crystal sweetener). Or on keto diet net carbs are always carbs take away fiber and sugar alcohol. So yes, I confirm that the bread makes 16 slices, 5.5 g carbs per slice, 1.6 g fiber and come out with 3.9 g net carbs. Enjoy! XOXO Carine

  2. 5 stars
    I made the bread yesterday and I have to tell you, it’s the best recipe I have tried ever! I have been on keto for about two months and have tried other bread recipes. Most were disappointing – either too eggy or minus any flavour. But this! I am so thrilled to have stumbled on this site. Thank you so much!!

    • Yeah! I like to read that and thank you so much for trying my recipes. I can’t wait to see what you will try next ! XOXO Carine.

  3. I notice under the notes that the carbs are 3.9 grams per slice is 3.9 but under nutrition it indicates 5.5. Which amount is correct?

    • The nutrition panel provides the total carbs which is indeed 5.5 g but on keto diet you count NET carbs. Unfortunately my nutrition panel tool don’t show net carbs so I always do the math for you and add this info as an extra note to my recipe cards. Net carbs are the one your body assimilate. You always calculate net carbs as total carbs takeaway the fiber! As there is 1.6 g of fiber per serving, one slice of bread comes to 3.9 g net carb. I hope it make sense. Enjoy the bread, XOXO Carine.

  4. 5 stars
    This is the best keto sweet bread I have tried so far! I am obsessed with it and so is everyone that has tried it when I’ve made it. Thank you!!

    • You need a sweetener in the bread like erythritol, xylitol, or monk fruit crystal. Otherwise if not on keto diet an healthy option is coconut sugar. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine

    • No you can’t because coconut flour is 4 times more absorbent thn almond flour it will be a very different recipe to create probably including way less flour. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine

    • I didn’t try something else so I am unsure. Usually the best nut free keto flour to replace almond flour in a 1:! ratio is sunflower seed flour. Enjoy the recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.

  5. 5 stars
    This looks great and I will definitely try it. I just wish there were a printable version… I’ve been looking and don’t see any button for one. I will do a couple of screen shots but that is kind of a kludge.

    • There is definitely print option on all my recipe. First one is on top of page after the recipe title, there is a ‘print recipe link’. Second is in the recipe card next to rating, another ‘print recipe link’ on your right. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine.
