This Keto Egg Loaf is a delicious recipe to make keto breakfast toasts or keto French toasts with only 2 grams of net carbs per slice.

Keto Egg Loaf

Bonus, this keto bread loaf is also gluten-free!

What’s A Keto Egg Loaf?

A keto egg loaf is a spongy keto bread made of eggs, cream cheese, and butter.

Some variations of the recipe add keto sugar-free sweetener, cinnamon, or a touch of keto flours to create a firmer bread texture.

It’s a very low-carb bread recipe often used as a pancake or French toast substitute on a keto diet.

How To Make Keto Egg Loaf For French Toasts

This egg loaf recipe is the easiest keto bread to make as a keto beginner.

In fact, if you want to see an easy way of making this recipe, why not check my web story: making the keto egg loaf.

Egg Loaf Ingredients

All you have to do is blend all the ingredients below together, bake, slice, and enjoy.

Let’s see below what you need to make the most delicious egg loaf recipe.

  • Large eggs – you need large eggs at room temperature for this recipe. Don’t worry, Eggs are very low in carbs!
  • Melted butter – you can also use melted coconut oil for this recipe. Butter is a great keto-friendly dairy product.
  • Coconut flour – most egg loaf recipes don’t use any keto flour, but I recommend a touch of coconut flour for so many reasons. First, it adds texture and structure to your bread. It’s much more enjoyable as a base for toast and won’t get soggy if used for Keto French toast. Next, it makes the bread less spongy, and it won’t sink in the middle after baking. Finally, coconut flour adds a lovely naturally sweet flavor to the bread.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon – a keto egg white bread with cinnamon tastes 100 times better, especially if you intend to make French toast with the recipe.
  • Erythritol or monk fruit drops –  this is optional, and I personally don’t add sweetener to my egg loaf bread. I prefer to add only vanilla, and cinnamon and then drizzle sugar-free maple syrup on each slice. Find out my Top-4 Keto-friendly Sweeteners.

Make the batter with a food processor

I highly recommend a food processor or a blender to make this recipe. It creates the best smooth bread batter, and your egg loaf won’t sink in the middle.

If you don’t have one of these kitchen tools, use an electric hand mixer—first, pulse cream cheese and eggs. Then, add the ingredients, following my recipe below.

Keto Egg Loaf

Bake 45 minutes

Transfer the batter into a loaf pan covered with greased parchment paper. Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C) for 45 minutes to 55 minutes or until the top of the bread is set and golden brown.

You can insert a skewer in the center of the bread to check if it’s cooked through. If the skewer comes out clean, the egg loaf is ready to cool down.

Cooldown

Always cool down the bread for 5 minutes in the bread pan before releasing it onto a cooling rack.

This also prevents the egg loaf from sinking in the middle and keeps its lovely shape.

Can I swap coconut flour for almond flour?

Yes, you can, but your egg loaf texture will be more soggy, spongy, and most probably sink in the middle.

Also, the ratio will be very different. Aim for 3/4 cup to 1 cup of almond flour to swap the 7 tablespoons of coconut flour used in this recipe.

How To Store Egg Loaf

You must store this bread in the fridge in a sealed container. You can slice the bread ahead of time or just before serving.

Overall it stores up to 4 days in the fridge or can be frozen, and sliced for 3 months.

Thaw the egg loaf on a plate at room temperature just before serving.

How Many Carbs Are In An Egg Loaf?

This egg loaf makes 12 slices. One slice is one serving and contains 3.4 grams of total carbs, 1.4 grams of fiber, and only 2 grams of net carbs.

It’s the perfect keto breakfast to fix a bread or pancake craving.

Does It Taste Eggy?

We all have a different sensitivity to egg flavor in food. But let’s reckon that yes, egg loaf does have a light, eggy flavor.

Any recipe with more than 4 eggs has an egg flavor, but egg loaves are used as a base for French toasts.

As a result, the added vanilla, cinnamon, and toppings totally cover up any egg flavor.

All you feel is a spongy, thick bread with delicious vanilla, cinnamon, and maple flavor.

It perfectly mimics bread and fixes any craving for bread you might have for breakfast with such a low amount of total carbs.

How To Serve Egg Loaf

Slice a piece of egg loaf and use it as:

  • Toast or keto pancake replacement – melt a teaspoon of butter in a frying pan and fry bread on both sides: drizzle sugar-free maple syrup and keto fruits on top.
  • Sandwich – don’t add any vanilla, cinnamon, or sweetener to the batter, and use 2 slices of egg loaf to make a sandwich. Add bacon, ham, lettuce, or any keto vegetable to make a quick keto lunch.
  • French toasts – follow my Keto French Toast recipe here.

We all love some sweet keto breakfasts to change from fried eggs. Keto scrambled eggs or omelette.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with greased parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, with the S blade attachment, blend eggs, melted butter, softened cream cheese, and vanilla extract if used. Blend on high speed until smooth.
  • Stop the food processor and add in baking powder, coconut flour, erythritol, and cinnamon, if used. Blend again on high speed to combine and form a smooth loaf batter with no lumps.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the top has puffed and has a lovely golden brown color. You can insert a skewer in the center of the loaf to test the baking. If it comes out clean, the egg loaf is cooked through.
  • Cool it down for 5 minutes in the pan, then pull out the hanging part of parchment paper to release the egg loaf.
  • Transfer onto a cooling rack, the loaf will slightly sink in the center at room temperature, and that's normal.
  • Use as breakfast toast or to make French toasts following my Keto French Toast recipe.

    33 Thoughts On Keto Egg Loaf Recipe

  1. Can I sub the erythritol with pure monk fruit or powdered stevia? Erythritol causes severe stomach distress over time for many people so I can’t use it. Thank you

  2. 5 stars
    I made it and it tasted good and is very filling. I sliced and browned with a little butter served with sugar free syrup My loaf browned but not in all areas and I baked for 55 min. It did not sink

  3. 5 stars
    I tried this recipe for the first time, I love it!! Super moist and spongy! I added a teaspoon of MTC oil, added 1 Tblsp of coconut flour and increased the cinnamon to a full tsp. It turned out divine!!

  4. 5 stars
    I haven’t tried this yet but it looks lovely but wondering if I could leave out the cinnamon or can I replace it with something else? Thanks for the recipe

  5. Ignore my last comment. Apparently I’m losing it. I thought I used almond flour but it turns out I actually did use coconut flour. 🤦🏼‍♀️

  6. 5 stars
    I made your Egg Loaf recipe today and it turned out perfectly! The top was golden brown and, once taken out of the oven, didn’t collapse at all! I am so excited to use the loaf to make French toast this upcoming Valentine’s Day. I’m so glad I tried this recipe, because I can see that it will be one that I will make often. I am especially happy that it is made with coconut flour and, thus, nut free. Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes and website! I am a big fan!❤️😋

  7. 5 stars
    The bread is wonderfully rich and delicious. Curious to know if this would work in a silicone or other muffin pan? Similar to a Hawaiian roll or Portuguese sweet bread as the texture is very similar and then can be used as a slider vs sandwich bread.

    I had brain fog today as I baked this Egg Loaf. (Multitasking is not my strong suit 🙂
    I had 2 recipes on tap for the day, this Egg Loaf and Nana’s Cream Cheese Pie (Crustless Cheesecake Recipe) from lowcarbmaven.com
    I thought I was so smart, I took out (3) 8 oz pkgs Cream Cheese, 1/4 cup Butter as well as a dozen Eggs and went about my day as they did their thing coming to room temp.
    I made the Egg Loaf first and was happy with the look of it after following the directions to a T (or sooooo I thought!), baked it 55 minutes.
    Then ….. I lowered the oven temp and started to mix up the Cream Cheese Pie and realized it only called for 4 large Eggs.
    WHOA!
    I still have 8 room temp Eggs left!
    Obviously, I was distracted and misread the directions meaning I only used 4 Eggs in this Egg Loaf recipe.
    Too late now, it is out of the oven, out of the baking pan and cooling on a wire rack.
    But it sure looks and smells wonderful so I was hoping for the best.
    WOWOWOW! I am impressed! I guess you can’t mess this recipe up 🙂
    After it cooled I cut slim slices off both ends and tasted them slathered with butter, YUM!
    Sliced the rest of the loaf into 12 slices and it is chilling, hanging out in the frig and tomorrow I will be making French Toast.
    Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
    This will NOT be the last time I make this ~ it is a KEEPER for sure!

  9. 5 stars
    absolutely enjoyed this recipe. been dying to have bread since starting keto. it’s better as is rather than altering into a sandwich though. definitely 5 stars!

  10. 5 stars
    absolutely loved the bread! thank you so much. I have been dying to eat bread ever since I started the Keto diet. I liked it better as is rather than altering it to create a sandwich. definitely 5 stars

  11. 5 stars
    I made doesn’t and turned it into French toast. OMG this is so yummy and even my husband love it. Win win

  12. Is Coconut flour gluten free? I just started keto and been gluten free many years. I love to bake and miss a good French toast. Cannot wait to try this recipe and may others from your site. I enjoy baking and would love to start again but it’s hard to find good recipes that are gluten free/keto and taste good.

    • Well, keto flours are rich in fat and therefore high in calories as well, btu you don’t count calories on keto only carbs. Since you are not allowed more than 25 g net carb a day (roughly), you can fit more than a slice or two in your day, and since they are super high in fiber they will keep you full at least 6 hours!

  13. 5 stars
    This recipe is perfect, and a “keeper.” I used a high-speed blender, and it didn’t sink at all! I cut it into slices for French toast tomorrow morning. If I want larger slices, I will bake in a smaller size pan the next time.
