Microwave keto bread – No eggs or mug needed !

I am back from holiday and my fridge is empty and of course, it is a public holiday this morning so no stores are open on Anzac Day morning in New Zealand. While the kids are fine on porridge for breakfast, Damien LOVES bread! He is vegan, I love my food healthy low carb. That is how this microwave keto bread or flaxseed bread recipe came to world. A combination of both our diet an empty fridge and a craving for bread. All you need to make this microwave keto bread recipe are 5 simple ingredients.

  • Flax meal – this is my favorite flour at home. Not only because it is low carb – only 2g net carb per 100 grams, but it also contains 30% iron and 20% calcium. A very healthy flour for my vegan husband who source his iron only from plant based food. Feel free to use gold or brown flaxseed, both work great. Golden flaxseed have a smaller bitter flavor.
  • Coconut flour – you don’t need much in this recipe but because it is a egg free keto bread recipe you definitely need the coconut flour to bind the ingredients together.
  • Unsweetened Almond milk – I tried the recipe with water as well and both works great. I simply found the bread lighter using Unsweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk, made from the best California Almonds
  • Baking soda + apple cider vinegaryou can skip those two if you don’t have them ! Don’t worry the recipe works BUT those two add a delicious ‘rise’ to the bread. Highly recommend!

Easy to make. Combine with your hands, shape, dip into seed mix, microwave and enjoy

How to eat the microwave keto bread ?

There 2 ways to enjoy your microwave keto bread. Make sure you always cool down 1-2 minutes on a rack before eating to avoid burning yourself. You can eat it as an:

  1. Toasted.  Split halfway, toast in the toaster on high for 1 minute or so, it will add a delicious crispy texture to the bread. Spread nut butter and enjoy !
  2. Raw. Enjoy your bread as is with your favorite toppings.

My favorite keto vegan sweet toppings – I am a sweet tooth you know that right?

  • Peanut butter + chia seed sugar free strawberry jam
  • Cashew butter + sugar free flavored maple syrup
  • Almond butter + raspberries + desiccated coconut and a drizzle of sugar free flavored maple syrup

How does flaxseed bread taste ?

It is a rich, hard, dense  bread that remind Europen bread. I am French, we love bread that is hard, slightly dry not really moist and fluffy.  Flaxseed are blend in flavors so it does not taste much. You can play with the flavor and add spices to the batter depending on what you intend to make with the bread.

  • Savory spices idea – onion powder, garlic powder, salt, paprika, curry, chilli, parmesan
  • Sweet spices idea – vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange zest, stevia drops

What if I don’t have a microwave?

I got you covered! I tested 2 other cooking methods that works well – simply a bit more time consuming for busy mornings

  • Oven. You can bake your flaxseed bread for 8-12 minutes at 360F (180C). Make sure you place the bread onto a cooking rack covered with parchement paper. Also I recommend to make a larger batch of bread and store the leftover for later. This recipe store really well when baked – up to 2 days. Simply multiply the whole recipe ingredients by 4 times – 1 cup flax meal and make 4 keto bread!
  • Pan. Yes! you can also cook your keto flatbread in a hot pancake pan – the same I used for my coconut flour crepes recipe – for 2-3 minutes on both sides, NO oil needed. Those won’t store for long too but it is a delicious way to make a crispy keto bread in less than 5 minutes in the morning.

Ingredients

Mixed Seed toppings

Instructions

  • In a small mixing bowl, add flax meal, coconut flour, baking soda, apple cider vinegar and unsweetened almond milk
  • Use your hand to bring the ingredients together and form a ball. It should not take more than 1 minute. The dough is slightly sticky at first but easily comes together into a bread ball. At contrary, if it is too dry, slightly add a bit more almond milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time. It may happen if you use fresh grounded flaxseed that tend to be finer and absorb liquid a bit more. 
  • Mix the seed onto a plate, place the bread ball onto the seed, press with your hand to flatten the dough and stick the seed on one side. Repeat on the other side. You should end up with a 1 cm thick bread with seeds on both side.
  • Place the bread on a plate, microwave on high for 1 minutes. You can add 30 seconds if you like your bread very tough/hard as French people does.
  • Remove from the microwave and cool down on a rack for 1 minute. The bottom of the bread that sit on the plate is always a bit moist, that is normal, it will dry on the rack very quickly.
  • Slice your bread half, and enjoy with your favorite nut butter and sugar free sweetener. Feel free to toast your bread slices in a toaster for extra crispiness. Use bagel mode and toast for 1 minute on high.
Storage: this bread doesn't store more than 1 hour. Texture will change with time so it is better to prepare your bread just before eating. You can simply mix the dry ingredients the day before, add almond milk in the morning and it is ready in 90 seconds!
Milk: use milk of your choice. I recommend almond milk as a dairy free low calorie milk.
No Microwave? That is ok, bake your bread at 360 F (180C) in the oven for 8-12 minutes. Make sure you place your bread on a baking rack covered with parchment paper. This technique makes bread even crispier and store better than the microwave one! Perfect if you want to make ahead some bread for breakfast sandwich.

  1. followed the recipe to a tee (the bake in the oven version) and they were a total fail. They crumbled and fell apart and were so dry.
    Any idea what went wrong there? Also the colour of the dough was much darker from start to finish when i compare to the photos in this recipe. 🙁

    • You may have used a thicker flaxmeal which explain why it is darker and dryer. You must use a very thin ground flaxmeal for success with this recipe. If the dough if too dry before baking you can always add 1 tablespoon water or almond milk. Also note that this intend to be a microwave bread recipe meaning that oven baking can dry them significantly. If you prefer oven bread recipe try my keto bread rolls. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.


  2. Hi carine! I just tried it and I liked it pretty much! The only thing I should warn about is the amounts of vinegar, I used a bit too much and it tasted a little weird. I realized actually that was my mistake after making it twice. And also I needed a bit more of milk. Anyways that odd taste can be easily hidden with some spread 😆😆
    I stored it also on the fridge and still kept a great texture! Xoxo

    • Hi ! I see what you mean, it happens to me before and too much ACV can make found bitter but I am sure you will follow the right amount next time and end up with the most beautiful bread. So glad you enjoy them anyway! Enjoy the recipes around here. XOXO Carine.


  3. Thank you for this. I’ve been searching for a recipe that doesn’t use so much nut flour so that it’s both lower calorie and lower in saturated fat. I replaced the coconut flour with 2 teaspoons of almond flour, added salt, and made a big flat cracker, no seeds, for my tuna salad. 170 calories, 12.5 g total fat, 9g protein, 1/3 g carbs. Next time I’ll try Monica’s psyllium husk substitution, and lower the macros even more. Fabulous!

  4. Hi, Carine! This looks great!
    I’m interested in baking a larger batch (1 cup of flax). Should I also qudruple the baking soda and vinegar?

    • I never cooked this recipe in the oven in large batch so I have got no idea how it will turn out or how you should work out the measurement. I guess you should quadruple everything but baking i not always as simple maths so you may need more or less liquid … Let me know if you give this a go, it is interesting ! XOXO Carine.


  5. What a delicious way to get all the health benefits of flaxmeal, and low carb too – this bread was wonderfu! I baked mine in the air fryer at 350°. I added onion powder and topped with cream cheese. It was reminiscent of an onion bagel. Next time I will flatten it a bit more to make a crispier disc! Btw, 140 calories is correct for 1/4 cup of flax. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!


  6. I made these for breakfast this morning. So quick to make and also so tasty. They passed the 5 year old child test which is also a bonus, she asked if we could have them again, and she enjoyed helping to make them. I used milled flax seeds that had goji berries in as this is all i had and it made them slightly sweet. They are eaten so fast that I haven’t had a chance to even put any fillings in. I’ve pinned your recipe ( https://www.pinterest.co.uk/stuff4vegans/vegan-recipes/ ) . Thank you.

    • Oh great ! I am so glad your little one enjoy this bread too. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine


  7. Generally I use soy milk. has anyone tried making this with soy milk instead of almond milk? It looks great and I have almost all the ingredients….. Shopping tomorrow for the rest. 🙂


  8. This was so good! Mine ended up being a bit smaller and a little tough to slice in half but perhaps it was just a bit dry. They were excellent nonetheless. I’m not vegan but for health reasons I have to avoid grains and I just really don’t like how Keto Fathead dough is so so cheesy (in a bad way). Thank you so much for posting it, you’ve saved me a lot of possible cheating and further putting my health at risk.

    • Yeah for great tasty bread! I am also not a big fan of cheesy Fathead dough so most of the recipe bread on my blog are cheese free and often egg free too. I am so glad you like it. Thanks for trying my recipes. XOXO Carine.


  9. Hello!
    I’ve just tried the bread, but I replaced coconut flour with psyllium husk and it seems that it worked very well!

    • Sorry for the mistake in the recipe note – the temperature was fine in the post but I did a mistake in the note. I use celsius where I live, trying to convert in F for US readers but sometimes I get confused and I apologize. So yes bake your bread at 360 F (180C) if you don’t have microwave! ENjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.


    • I’ve just made two of these rolls in the oven and subbed almond flour for coconut flour as I don’t like the taste. I had to put more flour in but they worked just fine. Might put a bit of salt in next time but loved the dense nature of them. So nice to have an egg free breakfast option now! Thanks!

      • That is amazing! I did not try to bake those or sub the coconut flour so it is a great comment for the future attempt. Thanks for trying my recipes on the blog. Enjoy! XOXO Carine.

    • I am sorry to hear that but you need coconut flour for this particular recipe. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.


  10. This bread was amazing! Just whipped it up, topped with avocado and cream cheese, poached egg, bacon and spinach.
    Needless to say I’m in a food coma 😂😂 Thank you for a simple, nutritious and filling recipe.

    • Thank YOU for trying my recipe and haring such a beautiful comment. I love your toppings too, it makes me so hungry right now ! Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

  11. hello _ I did not try yet but this nutrition info looks incorrect – a 1/4 cup flax has WAY more than 14 calories I would guess this is closer to 200 calories?

    • Thanks for notifying the issue. It was a technical error with the plugin not displaying the right information it is all fix now. Enjoy the lovely microwave bread and all the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.


  12. Wow! I was skeptical about a microwave bread, but this was SOOOO good! Slathered some grass-fed butter and nut butter on it, and it was yummy! Will definitely be adding this to my regular rotation :).

    • That is what I love to hear on a Monday morning! I am so happy you love that simple bread recipe. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.


  13. Excited to try this. Curious – what do you mean it keeps only for an hour? What happens after the hour? Is there any way to preserve e.g. freezing?

    • I mean that anything cooked in the microwave does not taste very good if you store it for long. Like mug cake or mug muffin the texture harden and dry out after an hour and I simply don’t think it is tasty as fresh from microwave. If you use the oven method it will store much better. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine.


  14. I was skeptical, few ingredients and super easy to make! But I loved it! This is a definite keeper for me! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe ❤️

    • I know what you mean! I was also doubtful when I developed this recipe but sometimes the easiest recipes taste the best right?! I am so happy you enjoyed those crusty keto bread. Enjoy all the low arb recipes on the blog and thanks for trying some and sharing such a nice feedback. Also, don’t forget to tag me on instagram with your beautiful creation that I can share with others !!! XOXO Carine.


  15. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
    I live in the US but ever since starting Keto and adding good Irish butter to my diet, I have been longing for the dense wholesome breads I enjoyed on a trip to Ireland last year. My favorite part of the day was slathering local Irish butter on the warm breads they served with breakfast and this recipe has recreated that moment for me! I did not have the seeds you used on hand so I pressed my bread in sliced almonds and it was still delicious. Can’t wait to try your seed recommendations though and make this again soon! Slathered in Kerrygold butter, it was the perfect accompaniment to my morning coffee… Many thanks!

    • Hi from New Zealand ! Like you I love the wholesome dense bread, I am French and I am used to that delicious texture. That’s what I tried to recreate with this simple keto bread recipe and I am so glad you love it too! Most of the keto bread recipe are soft and mimic really well soft bread but not the European Dutch style bread. Thanks so much for this lovely comment, go to butter on that bread too! Enjoy the recipe on the blog and thanks so much for taking a minute to add such a beautiful comment. XOXO Carine.


  16. This is one of the most creative great recipes for bread as a diabetic I bow to this recipe thanks a million for this

    • You are so lovely ! I am very happy that you enjoyed this simple bread recipe. I was a prediabetic too 5 years ago and I still can’t eat much carbs (but I am such a bread lover!). This recipe is my go to recipe when I craving bread in the morning and I am happy you love it too. Good luck with the diabetes struggles as well !!! XOXO Carine.


  17. This was so delicious. I realized I don’t like the eggy taste of some keto bread but this was just a treat. I added a little stevia for sweet bread but it was an afterthought and only stayed on some parts of it. Thank you

    • I am s glad you like those simple keto microwave bread! I love low carb recipes but I am not a big fan of the strong eggy taste on some bread, pancakes or crepes recipes. That is why I love this bread so much too! I am happy that this suits you too 🙂 Enjoy the low carb recipe on the blog! XOXO Carine.


  18. Wow, I’m so glad I stumbled upon this recipie! I had the ingredients just sitting in my cupboard and was able to make this and so quickly! No faffing about, little mess and not using a dozen eggs to make it. ( a lot of keto bread recipes have this unfortunately and I don’t want to illiminate high sugar levels by replacing with high cholesterol!) I have recently been diagnosed with a rare endocrine syndrome meaning I get fluctuating insulin responses and now mustn’t touch grans, and starchy stuff like pasta and rice; very low carbs basically to help stabilize this. I was pretty depressed about the bread situation but now I’ve found your recipie I feel like I’ve found the holy grail to my sanity to have bread again and feel normal! Thank you so much. Xx

    • Your comment remind me why I am sharing recipes on this blog. Makes people HAPPY! It makes me feel so good to read your comment, your story and I am so glad I could have help you a little bit from New Zealand with my fav microwave flax bread! Thank you SO much for reading the blog, I hope you will find more low carb recipes here that could help you live happy with your difficult health issue. Love from NZ. XOXO Carine.

    • Thank you SO much ! I am so happy you enjoyed that simple flaxseed bread recipe 🙂 (I am French that is where my name is coming from !) XOXO Carine.


  19. This was SO good ! I love the taste of flaxseed and I was missing dense bread since gone keto. This was a quick fix Love it, will make it again !!


  20. My husband is a longtime family practice doc. We follow the basic principles of the diet proposed by the Cleveland Heart Lab: eliminating as many empty carbs from our diet as possible (wheat and wheat byproducts, white and brown rice and their byproducts, , potatoes, sugar); Minimal beef and pork. Lots of salmon, sardines, etc., ancient grains, fresh veggies especially cruciferous veggies; Almond milk, Walnuts, Plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, etc. I am also very allergic to aspartame/ aspartamine and I
    almost died after drinking a Diet Coke years ago! Anyhoo, I am loving your wonderful, healthful recipes!!! Many thanks!

    • That Diet Coke story is so scary my love! I hate artificial sweeteners too. I am using natural unrefined sweetener and when possible sugar free natural options like monk fruit sugar or stevia. I am so glad you found nice recipe on the blog. Mine are 100% vegetarian and most of my desserts are healthy vegan recipes – no butter, cream, eggs or refined flour/sugar. Enjoy my little space. I am so happy to have you on board. You r diet/story is so inspiring!!! XOXO Carine.


  21. Have you tried this with oat flour by chance? The amount of fat I have to intake is pretty low and wondering if I can make it higher in carbs? Still excited to try though!

    • No I didn’t. Oat flour contains less fiber so this recipe won’t work the same with similar ratio. I won’t replace the flaxseed it will be a different recipe if you use oat flour. Remember that fat from seeds are healthy ones ! Enjoy the blog! XOXO Carine.
