What’s A Vegan Eggless Keto Bread?

I am so excited to share this vegan keto bread loaf recipe with you. Believe me or not, I am testing and eating all the easy keto recipes on this blog.

This bread creation has been the most challenging so far as I really wanted to create a keto vegan bread, meaning with no eggs or dairy.

I tested at least 10 low-carb vegan bread recipe options over the past 2 months until I finally came out with the perfect recipe.

So here you go, but first, let me answer some keto diet facts about psyllium husk, one of the main ingredients of this recipe.

Is Psyllium Husk Keto-friendly?

Psyllium husk, also known as whole psyllium husk is a dietary fiber that contains very few carbs since over 80% of the carbs in psyllium husk are fiber not absorbed by your intestine.

Because of this, psyllium husk is an excellent addition to your keto diet because it’s a no-carb food that adds fiber to your diet.

Fibers are an essential part of the low-carb keto diet to keep your gut healthy and your stomach full.

Read my Keto Flour Guide to learn how to choose the best flour for your keto diet!

Psyllium Husk, a Sugar-Free Fiber Supplement

Research on psyllium husk has shown that it lowers blood cholesterol and blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

It makes psyllium husk a great sugar-free fiber supplement for people with diabetes.

Therefore, adding psyllium husk into your keto bread will help you stabilize your blood sugar level too.

THE BEST KETO BREAD LOAF

How To Make Vegan Keto Bread Loaf

So this is my secret blend of ingredients to make a delicious eggless paleo bread or vegan keto bread.

Ingredients

Please don’t swap or replace any flour, it’s an egg-free keto bread, and any change will impact the result of the recipe:

  • Almond Flour – I used ultra-fine blanched almond flour. Don’t use unblanched flour. It would make the bread heavier, too dense. Almond flour is a great keto-friendly flour.
  • Coconut Flour – make sure you are using fresh coconut flour with no lumps.
  • Psyllium husk – use whole psyllium husk, not husk powder supplements that are loaded with artificial ingredients and generally contain less than 50% husk.
  • Flaxseed Meal – use ground flaxseed meal. Feel free to use the gold flaxseed meal or dark flaxseed meal. The gold one creates a lighter bread color.
  • Lukewarm Water – make sure the water is at around 100°F (40°C), it will activate the fiber of the flour faster, and the texture will come out lighter and softer.
  • Salt
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – or any vinegar. This will activate the baking powder, don’t skip it.
  • Baking Powder – that is the leavening ingredient. Don’t replace it.

Is Almond Flour Keto?

Yes, 10 times, yes! Almond Flour is probably the best keto-friendly flour!

It has only 10.6 grams of net carbs per 100g with 14.2 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein.

Compared with all-purpose flour with 90 grams of carbs and only 1.2 grams of fat, you realize that Almond Flour is the absolute ideal flour for a low-carb diet!

Making The Best Vegan Almond Flour Bread

Let’s face it. We all miss a good bread sandwich on the low-carb diet.

I have been fixing my sandwich cravings using my egg-free keto bread roll recipe for a while now, but I was really missing a sandwich with bread slices.

I am French, so I was used to eating ham sandwich bread my entire childhood.

This keto almond flour bread recipe has been the best so far. It really brings memories back, no guilt – as there are very few carbs – and so much flavor!

Serving Keto Vegan Bread

There are many ways to serve your vegan keto bread. Here are a few of my favorite ways to use these delicious slices.

  • Cinnamon toast – toast the slices in the toaster, spread a tablespoon of butter, and sprinkle erythritol, cinnamon, and fresh keto fruits like raspberries.
  • Jam toast – spread some homemade chia seed jam on top.
  • French toast – use this bread as a base in my keto french toast recipe.
  • Breakfast poached eggs – toast bread, add mashed avocado, grilled bacon, and poached eggs.
  • Sandwich – add any cheese, keto vegetables, and cured meat for a delicious keto sandwich.

Texture And Taste

This simple eggless keto bread has everything you could expect from a bread loaf:

  • A relatively dark outside brown color with a perfect crust that glows and shines.
  • The crumb or the inside of the loaf is tender, not too tight, not dry at all, and has holes.
  • It holds really well, the center doesn’t deflate, and you can easily slice it in thin slices like regular bread.

Tips For Making The Perfect Vegan Keto Bread

Low-carb vegan baking is a form of art! I have been a baking lover since I am a kid.

I have always been the one baking cakes for birthday parties from an early age. Since I am a low-carb baker, I can tell this is art.

It’s an art to play with low-carb flours and no eggs!

It’s not hard, though. Once you have the hang of it, it’s actually quite easy. It simply takes time to understand how these flours work.

They are loaded with fiber, so they absorb tons of liquid, but they need time for the magic to happen.

Low-Carb Baking Advice For Beginners

  • Be patientknead the dough for 2 minutes. It might seem long, but it’s what it takes to make the perfect keto bread loaf. Think of all the calories you are burning kneading that dough! Then, always set aside the dough for 10 minutes to let the fiber absorb the moisture.
  • Shape it as playdoh – do you remember playing playdoh as a kid? It’s the same for low-carb dough. Shape it as you want to see it when baked. Low-carb baking loaves don’t expand much when baking. If you want your loaf like mine with a lovely top bun, don’t press/flatten the dough! Shape it with that lovely round top “belly”. It will slightly raise while baking but not as much, so if you flatten the top or press it firmly, your bread will end up dense and dry with no holes in the crumbs.
  • Repeat – it takes time and practice. So don’t give up your creations will get more beautiful each time.

Storing Vegan Keto Bread Loaf

I recommend slicing the loaf before freezing them.

I usually get 16 slices from this recipe. Store your bread in the fridge in an airtight plastic box or airtight zip-lock bag.

You can also freeze your bread for up to 3 months. I like to freeze my bread slices in a zip-lock plastic bag and defrost my slice the day before on the bench.

I always toast my bread after it has been frozen. It is up to you! I hope you enjoy this new low-carb bread recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Use Psyllium Husk In Keto Recipes?

The best way to add psyllium husk to your keto diet is to use whole psyllium husk as a flour swap in keto baking recipes. 

It adds a chewy bread-like texture to baked goods, and therefore, it’s an amazing ingredient in creating egg-less keto recipes like this vegan keto bread.

Don’t use Metamucil fiber supplements in keto recipes. 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.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C), preferably using the convection mode. Line a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Slightly oil the paper to make sure the bread doesn't stick to the pan. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients, whisk to combine. 
  • Add the liquid ingredients. The order doesn't matter. Combine with a spatula or a spoon, then use your hands to knead the dough for about 1-2 minutes. The batter is very moist at first, getting dryer as you go. After 2 minutes, it should come together easily to form a dough. If it is still sticky, add more husk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, knead for 30 seconds and see how it goes. The dough will always be a bit moist, but it shouldn't stick to your hands at all. If so, the egg-free keto bread will be too moist when baked. 
  • Set aside 10 minutes to let the fiber fully absorb the liquid. 
  • Shape the dough as you want your bread to look when baked. You surely want a lovely round bun on top of your loaf. So shape a cylinder of dough that matches the pan's length, but DO NOT press or flatten the top of your loaf, or you will end up with a denser/tight crumb. Keep the top's shape round. It's what will create a light and soft bread loaf with holes in the crumb.
  • Slightly rub your hand with water and massage the bread's surface to remove holes and create a smooth surface. 
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes in the oven's center. The fan-bake mode is the best. 
  • After 50 minutes, prick the center of the loaf with a skewer to test. If it comes out clean, it is cooked. If not, it means the bread is still wet inside, cover the loaf pan with a piece of foil, reduce heat to 350°F (180°C), and keep baking for 20-30 minutes until cooked in the middle. 
  • Lift the bread out of the pan using the parchment paper.
  • Fully cool down on a rack before slicing – at least 3 hours for best results.
  • Slice into 16 slices. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months in airtight containers.
Freeze: slice the bread into 16 slices and freeze into a ziplock plastic bag or airtight container. It is better to defrost on the bench-top the day before, then toast until hot and crispy. 
Fridge: store well up to 5 days in the fridge in an airtight container or ziplock bag. I recommend you toast the bread slice for a few minutes in the toaster before serving.
Flours swap: don’t replace any flour in this recipe for perfect results.
Bread color: if your bread turns purple, it will be because of the psyllium husk brand you choose. For some reason, a few husk brands turn blue/purple when baked. It doesn’t impact the flavor or quality of your bread. Use a different brand to avoid this next time. Make sure you are using a blanched almond meal and gold flax meal for a lighter bread color.
Net carbs per slice: 3.3 grams of net carbs.
Psyllium husk: don’t use Metamucil fiber supplement 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 the bread dry, purple, or blue.

    Have you tried making this bread into stuffing? Any suggestions for how to turn this into stuffing without it becoming gummy? Thanks!

  2. 5 stars
    This bread is absolutely delicious! The only challenge I had was to wait “about 3 hours”. That did not happen. I couldn’t resist. I waited about an hour only. It turned out so good! Lots os good stuff in it. I’ll definitely make this over and over again. Easy recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  3. 5 stars
    I made this yesterday, and it’s delicious! I used CASSAVA flour instead of coconut, and ground chia seeds instead of flax. I did have to add almost 1/4 cup extra of the whole psyllium husks during the kneading process, to reduce the stickiness of the cassava, and it turned out perfect. Thank you so much for the recipe!

  4. 5 stars
    Love this bread No yucky Egg taste. Came out prefect every time I make it.thanks for this wonderful recipe.

  5. This is the most amazing bread. I gave up vegan keto but kept making this. It’s so easily digested. I’ve made lots of variations e.g. adding caraway seeds, or sundried tomatoes & rosemary, or cinnamon & raisin. When adding anything wet like tomatoes or soaked raisins, I add about 1/2 tablespoon extra of psyllium husk and it works out perfectly every time. I’ll keep experimenting with it!

  6. Looks great and I will try it tomorrow. Just curious about how well it toasts? That’s always a problem with most keto breads. I miss my crunchy toast!

  7. 5 stars
    I don’t think you understand the level of self-control that was necessary for me to NOT eat the whole dang loaf!!!! It’s SO delicious! almost like a cake-bread. This will be my go-to bread recipe forever!!!! Thank you!

    • 5 stars
      How much yeast would you add for flavour? Do you need to add sugar with the yeast? I’ve made my 1st loaf and it was delicious. Want to make another.

      • I would probably add 2 teaspoon by won’t worry about sugar activation, just activate in some of the lukewarm water used in the recipe, the yeast won’t make the bread raise – since its a gluten-free bread – but add a great flavor.

  8. 5 stars
