Peanut Butter Bread (Keto, Gluten-Free)
Peanut butter bread is a healthy moist keto bread perfect for breakfast toast or afternoon tea with only 5 grams net carb per slice.
Plus, it is gluten-free and dairy-free. This healthy peanut butter bread is a dream. My two favorite things come together into the most delicious comforting keto bread.
Is Peanut Butter Keto?
Yes, you can safely eat peanuts or peanut butter on a keto diet while staying in ketosis.
Note that 100 grams of peanuts contain 16 grams of carbs but 9 grams of fiber.
It means that you get only 7 grams of net carbs per 100 grams of peanuts.
Also, you never go more than 30 grams of peanut butter at once, so you will barely get 2 grams of net carbs per serving!
Obviously, you must use peanut butter with no added sugar to keep it in the safe range, and don’t overdo it.
But overall, you can definitely have a slice of this bread to fix any sweet bread cravings safely.
What Is Keto Peanut Butter Bread?
A keto peanut butter bread is a simple sweet bread recipe made with peanut butter, keto flour, and eggs.
It has a soft fluffy bread texture delicious for breakfast toast with sugar-free strawberry jam or on its own.
How To Make Peanut Butter Bread
More than keto bread, this is a healthy peanut butter bread made only with wholesome ingredients.
Indeed, this bread contains lots of plant-based fiber and protein.
Let’s see what you need to make this.
- Peanut butter – make sure fresh, runny peanut butter that has no oil or sugar added in the peanut butter.
- Eggs – this adds the fluffy texture to the bread, and because the recipe use only 2 eggs, it has no eggy flavor at all.
- Almond flour – I used fine almond flour which gives the best result. Almond meal works but makes the bread heavier and denser.
- Psyllium husk – I used the whole husk. It is my secret ingredient to this soft bread texture. Don’t use Metamucil fiber supplements in my recipes. This is 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.
- Baking powder, or you can use half the amount of baking soda.
- Unsweetened almond milk – I am using Almond breeze as always because it has no aftertaste in my recipes and contains barely a few carbs, and no added sugar.
- Vanilla – optional but always delicious with it! Use vanilla seeds if you cant find a sugar-free vanilla extract.
- Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, you need this to activate the baking powder as the recipe is gluten-free.
Serving Peanut Butter Bread?
This is a delicious sweet bread for breakfast toast. First, I recommend spreading sugar-free chia seed am on top or simply butter. Also, you can toast the slices to add a little crispiness!
Finally, you can serve this bread as a breakfast bread. One slice with a cup of my bulletproof coffee for breakfast is delicious to start the day.

Keto Peanut Butter Bread
Want My Kitchen Equipment?
- 1 cup Natural Peanut Butter fresh, runny, no added oil or sugar
- 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- ⅔ cup Crystal Sweetener
- 1 ¾ cup Almond Flour
- 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
- ⅓ cup Whole Psyllium Husk see note on how to choose yours
- Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C), fan-forced if you can otherwise regular baking mode.
- Line a 9×5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a food processor, with the S blade attachment, add peanut butter, unsweetened almond milk (at room temperature, not too cold, or it will harden the peanut butter), eggs, vanilla, and sugar-free crystal sweetener.
- Close the food processor and process until smooth about 40 seconds.
- Open the food processor and add almond flour, apple cider vinegar, and baking powder.
- Process again on medium/high speed until the almond flour is well incorporated, about 30-40 seconds.
- Open the food processor and add psyllium husk. You can add husk in the previous step, with almond flour but it can form lumps so I prefer to add them separately. Process again on medium/high speed for 40 seconds to combine all the ingredients and form the peanut butter bread batter.
- Pour the peanut butter bread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes. I recommend wrapping the loaf pan with a piece of foil after 20 minutes to prevent the top of the bread from burning. Bake for at least 50 minutes up to 70 minutes if needed, or until the bread has set in the center. Check if it is cooked by inserting a pick in the middle of the bread. If it comes out clean it is cooked.
- Remove the pan from the oven. Cool down for 10 minutes into the pan then loosen the side with a knife and pull out the bread from the pan using the pieces of parchment paper.
- Cool down on a rack for at least 3 hours or overnight before slicing.
- You can store your bread in an airtight box or wrapped in a clean towel for up to 4 days at room temperature.
- Otherwise, freeze the sliced bread in an airtight container or bag. Defrost the slices 1 hour before at least or overnight at room temperature and bring to the toaster to add some crispiness.
- Enjoy your bread slice raw or bring it to the toaster to add some crispiness.
- I recommend spreading butter, sugar-free chia seed jam or sugar-free chocolate spread for extra decadence! Use this bread as a base for my keto French toast recipe if you like!

Can I use tahini instead of peanut butter? Do you think it will still work? And will it still be keto?
Absolutely both are keto friendly
Can I ask for a hard copy of your keto low carb recipe please. I’m having a hard time to look for your recipe here in your video. Tell me how can I get it. Thank you and God bless you richly and your YouTube vlog.
You can check my recipe eBook for printable version of my recipes.
Hi, thanks for sharing your recipe. I reckon I can substitute oat milk for almond milk & honey for erythritol for this recipe? 😉
Yes, this should work well
This recipe was super easy and very quick to both make and clean up. I was expecting it to be dense, and just a good keto bread, but not necessarily a good bread, but it’s so light and fluffy with a surprisingly nice taste. You could easily reduce the sweetener and add fresh herbs to make it more savoury, or throw in sugar-free chocolate chips to make muffins. I used two flax eggs to keep it vegan and it came out perfect.
would omitting the sugar affect the overall outcone ofcthis recipe?
It won’t be sweet at all but the batter should hold well without the sugar free sweetener
hello i would like to try this peanut butter bread out can i use a mixer i don’t own a blender will it work with mixer???
Sure, a food processor will work well too
what about using finely ground psyllium?
You can use ground husk by some brands turns food blue purple. Also, you will need less since it’s a ground the volume needed will be different.
OMG, so good!! I put the batter in silicon donut molds, so cute, and tasty!
Thanks, today I am making the peanut butter loaf, I hope it will come out like on the video and pic ! How do I get your receipts ?
I am not sure what your question is, do you meant recipe ? The recipe ingredient measurement are before this comment section in the recipe card if its what you need. Enjoy the bread, XOXO Carine
Can I replace almond flour for chickpea flour?almond flours use to be very expensive here in Brasil.
No sorry you can’t. First chickpea flour is not keto approved, high in carbs and it’s way heavier than almond flour, the bread will come out very hard and dense. XOXO Carine
Hi Carine! I wanted to clarify the almond flour measurement with you. I have calculated 1 3/4 Almond flour as 175 grams and you indicate 210 grams. I am in the US so I am not sure if our fine Almond flour is a bit different? I was just hoping for your guidance before I make this delicious looking bread. I’ve enjoyed every recipe of yours I have tried.
Can I use almond meal instead of almond flour? I will like to try these recipe and so many more.
Kind regards and thanks 😊
Yes but note than almond meal give a gritty texture to keto baking recipes. Enjoy.
Hello ! I am using US standard cups and ultra fine almond flour as you have in US grocery store. So if you follow my recipe in cups you will be all good anytime. It easy to have 10/20% difference when you convert cups to weight because it depends of the method you used to fill the cups and as you said the structure of the flour. If you are measuring slightly less flour in your cups it might be because your almond flour is coarser, therefore you fit less in the cup, or you didn’t pack the cup as much. But overall don’t worry too much, if you follow the recipe in cups it will be fine. Enjoy the lovely bread. XOXO Carine
this was awesome !…I made it vegan by replacing the eggs for tofu and foamy beaten aquafaba (I bought my aquafaba on amazon. It’s powder and has No fat, carbs, or calories), so the tofu replaced the protein and moisture. ( i also added1 tbsp. chia seeds). The macro’s were still Keto friendly after amending and it was delicious. Thank You for all your wonderful recipes and helpful knowledge on keto…so far I have lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks !
That’s amazing ! Thanks for following me here. Enjoy the recipes and keep up the great weight lose ! XOXO Carine
Hello, can you substitute the psyllium husk for flaxseed?
I guess it could work here but the texture will dense and compact. Enjoy, XOXO Carine
Think it will be ok without a food processor?
Sure but make sure you are using a runny peanut butter and al ingredients at room temperature or it will solidify the peanut butter making it hard to blend by hand. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine
Thank you so much, Take care, Carine
Topped with Nutella would be Awesome!
Hi if I omit the sweetener and add 1tsp salt would the texture be the same?
It will change the texture slightly but still be good! Enjoy, XOXO Carine
Made this today. Didn’t bother with any sweetener.
Just sliced it and had a nibble at the ends.
Very tasty, reminded me of some of the European dark breads.
Looking forward to having my first bread meal tomorrow.
Gluten intolerant hubby also going to give it a go with jam in the morning. Thanks.
I’m finding it hard to find recipes that are peanut and gluten-free as well…so it’s double trouble for me to be able to use the ones I have found. I am not celiac but have sensitivities so it does not hurt once in awhile but otherwise not.
Don’t worry, I have plenty of peanuts free and gluten free bread recipe on the blog. You should try my bluberry bread loaf recipe or pumpkin bread recipe or my keto bread loaf recipe if you are looking for a sandwich bread recipe. All are gluten free + peanut s freee! Enjoy. XOXO Carine.
