How to make Keto French Baguettes

As a French girl, creating my own keto baguette recipe for breakfast is a dream! Imagine a crusty breadstick with yeasty bread crumbs and only 2.8 grams of net carbs. Keep reading to learn how to make a keto baguette in your own kitchen with only simple ingredients.

Ingredients for keto baguette

All you need to make these egg-free keto bread recipes are a few simple ingredients. First, you need a combination of keto flours to mimic a real French artisan baguette’s texture.

No flour substitution is allowed in this recipe, or the result wouldn’t be good!

Then, a touch of dried yeast for flavor and finally some olive oil adds a delicious earthy flavor to the bread.

  • Almond flour – you need ultra-fine almond flour for this recipe. It means ultra-fine golden almond flour, not a thick almond meal, or the bread dough won’t come together and be very wet. For more on keto flours, please read about my favorite keto-friendly flours.
  • Coconut flour  – you can’t swap coconut flour with more almond flour.
  • Flaxseed meal – this refers to finely ground flaxseed, preferably golden flaxseed, to avoid a fishy hearty smell often present in brown flaxseeds.
  • Dried yeast – this won’t raise the bread, but it adds a delicious yeasty flavor similar to French sourdough bread. Note that yeast can’t raise keto gluten-free bread very much.
  • Inulin – this is the best sugar-free yeast activator. Otherwise, you can use maple syrup. Since the yeast feed on maple syrup, there is no sugar left in the recipe at the end.
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
  • Lukewarm water – at 98F/37C, think batch temperature. Don’t use boiling water, or the bread dough will be overly elastic.

For a different perspective on this recipe, watch my web story: making the keto baguette step by step.

Yeast mixture

First, prepare the yeast mixture. Whisk together the dried active yeast with lukewarm water and inulin or maple syrup. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Dry ingredients

In another large mixing bowl, combine the keto flours. It’s essential to whisk the flours evenly, so the fibers are well distributed in the bowl. This prevents the psyllium husk from forming lumps when in contact with liquids in the next steps.

Form the baguette dough

Pour the yeast mixture and olive oil, and apple cider vinegar onto the bowl with the keto flours. First, stir with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula. Then, lightly oil your hands and knead the dough for at least 1 minute to give the fiber time to soak the liquid.

Slightly rub the surface of the dough ball with olive oil. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and set it aside for 30 minutes.

Divide dough into baguettes

Now, split the dough into 2 equal portions and roll each portion into an 8-inch/20 cm cylinder. Place each cylinder onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and form cuts on top of the cylinder using a sharp knife.

How to make KETO French Baguette recipe

Bake the baguette

Bake the bread in preheated oven 350F for about 40-50 minutes or until crusty and golden brown on the outside.

Can I add an egg to this recipe?

No, you can’t remove the psyllium husk to add eggs or egg whites in this recipe. It won’t work well, and you will lose the chewy crumb texture of this delicious French keto bread recipe.

How many servings per baguette?

On a ketogenic diet, you must count your net carbs to reach your macro and lose or maintain weight.

If you want to integrate this keto baguette recipe as part of your keto meal plan, note that each 8-inch keto baguette serves 6 slices. One slice weighs about 45 grams/ 1.6 oz and provides 2.8 grams of net carbs.

How to eat keto baguette?

You can use this keto vegan baguette bread to make sandwiches. Add butter, ham cheese, and keto vegetables for a fulfilling keto sandwich.

Another option is to use this bread to make keto garlic bread. Add garlic butter on top of the bread. Finally, if you are a sweet tooth like me, use this bread for breakfast.

Keto french bread

Spread keto chia seed jam, almond butter, or butter on top of your slice for a delicious sweet keto breakfast. Note that you can toast the bread slices to boost the crispy texture of your bread.

Tips to make egg-free keto bread

This is an egg-free keto bread recipe, which means that you must measure your ingredient with precision to achieve a bread that is not wet in the center. My top keto baking tips to make keto bread without eggs or cheese is to use

  • Ground psyllium husk – don’t use whole husk, or the bread turns wet inside and often changes into blue, purple color. My favorite brand is Now food psyllium husk powder.
  • Scoop and sweep method – this is how you should measure all the ingredients in this recipe to avoid adding too much flour. Scoop the flour from the bag, slightly pack and sweep any extra to level the measuring cup perfectly.

More keto bread recipe without eggs or dairy

If you follow me for a while, you know how much I love to create keto bread recipes that are dairy-free with no eggy taste. The reason is purely based on taste! Keto bread can be eggy or cheesy and consequently disappointing if you miss real bread. My keto bread recipes are always balanced to avoid an eggy flavor, and some below are another great one for you to try!

  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, prepare the yeast mixture, combine lukewarm water, dried yeast, and inulin. Set aside 10 minutes.
  • In another large mixing bowl, whisk all the flour: almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseed meal, psyllium husk, and salt.
  • Pour the yeast mixture, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar into the flour bowl.
  • Combine with a spoon at first, then lightly oil your hands and knead the dough for at least 2 minutes. The dough is very wet at first and dries out as you go. It should stay soft, slightly sticky, but not overly wet. If so, add more husk, up to 1 tablespoon, until the dough is soft and holds as a ball.
  • Form a dough ball, slightly oil the outside of the dough ball with olive oil and cover the mixing bowl with a towel. Set aside 30 minutes.
  • Divide the dough ball into 2 equal portions and shape each portion into a long loaf (about 8-inch/20cm long and 1.5 inches in diameter), with pointed ends to look like a French baguette.
  • Place each baguette onto the prepared baking tray, leaving a 2-thumb space between each baguette.
  • Using a sharp knife to make 4 elongated slashes on each baguette.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes or until brown and crusty.
  • Cool down on a rack before slicing. The crust will soften with time, but you can toast baguette slices in the bread toaster before serving.
  • Each baguette can be sliced into 6 equal slices of about 45g/1.6 oz each. Nutrition panel is for 1 slice.


  • Store the baguette wrapped in a clean towel for up to 4 days at room temperature or freeze and thaw at room temperature the day before.

  1. Hi, I’m type 1 diabetic. Do I still have to count total carbs as some fibre is broken down into sugar in the body? Concerned if I just count net carbs my blood glucose will increase too much. Just so I can dose my insulin correctly. Thank you.

  2. I do not have flaxseed meal. Can I use more ground psyllium husk and if so what is the total amount of ground psyllium husk to use? Thanks

  3. Yippee! As a long time bread baker, my baguette pan has been very lonely! Haven’t used it in years.

    It’s the kind of pan with holes throughout the bottom. For a crisp crust. Can I use it in this recipe?

    I could put parchment underneath it if needed.

  4. Followed the recipe to a tee. Proofed for 30 minutes at 90 degrees. Didn’t rise at all (yeast was brand new).
    Baked for 50 minutes…wet inside. Kept adding another 10 minutes for a total of 90 minutes. Still too moist. Had to toast each slice and I guess it was edible, dipped in olive oil.
    Recipe suxks.

    • I am sorry you didn’t enjoy this recipe but this recipe won’t raise as clearly mentioned in the recipe. It’s a gluten-free bread and flour without gluten can’t raise, it’s chemistry. The purpose of yeast in keto bread is only to add a bread-like flavor. Finally, if your bread is wet inside it means you didn’t use a husk brand made for baking, only husk supplement result in wet bread, which is not suitable for baking.

  5. Followed to a T. It’s purple and heavy and took 2 hours to dry out enough to eat. What did I do wrong? Thank you for posting this. I am determined to get this one right lol

    • If your bread is so wet and turned purple it means you are not using a brand of husk made for baking. Change brand, use psyllium husk for keto baking, not Metamucil or food supplement,

    • No, it won’t feed the yeast, there is two way to activate yeast : sugar or inulin. In both cases, there’s no sugar left in the recipe because the yeast turn sugar into carbon dioxide.

  6. Hi, thank you for recipe, I am new to keto,I was just wandering if I can I substitute flaxseed meal with egg? Or anything else. Thanks

  7. Hi made this bread and it’s really tasty one of the most bread like keto recipes I’ve tried however I have a question about the psyllium husk. The metric recipe says 59 g which when I convert to 1/4 cup is a major difference. Can you let me know exactly how much psyllium husk I need to use. My bread was a little moist and I’m wondering if I need more p husk. I used a heafty 1/4 cup which weighed 27g. Thanks

    • I am glad you enjoyed the baguette! The metric convection has an issue, you need 1/4 cup of ground husk -which is 20g. If you used whole husk you may need way more to achieve the same texture.

      • Hi thanks for the response. Not sure why the bread was a little moist as I actually used 27g of p husk powder. And I’ve used this brand of husk with good results in many other recipes. My bread was also pretty flat. Is there something you can use to give a little rise without affecting the recipe?

  8. I’ve made this several times now, and we love it! Easy to make and tasty! Can the recipe be doubled to make larger loaves?

  9. Hi I’m making this today but just realised I don’t have any coconut flour can I substitute with something else? Thank you

  10. Is there a way to make this bread with a gluten-free sour dough starter or kefir instead of yeast? I have HS and I cannot have gluten, regular yeast that is meant to go in breads. I can tolerate kefir, yogurts, vinegar and sour dough in moderation… I miss baguettes!

  11. there is no leavening in this? I am going to Mothers Day celebration and bring this for garlic bread so it needs to be right :-/ I’m scared 🙂 TY

  12. Hi, can I use honey instead of inulin or maple syrup to feed the yeast? This is my first time working with yeast and plus being on a low carb sugar free diet, I don’t really wanna get a new bottle of maple syrup. My kids prefer honey that’s why I have some at home.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  13. 5 stars
    Can’t wait to try this recipe! Does this recipe call for double acting baking powder or regular? Thank you for sharing your expertise with us xoxo

  14. I can’t find ground or powder psylium husk here, is it ok if I grind the whole husk in the coffee grinder?

  15. 5 stars
    I think this is something I’m doing wrong because this happened with An Irish soda bread too, but do you know why my breads keep coming out super dark in the middle? Almost looks like rye bread 🤷🏻‍♀️
