How to Bake Low Carb Keto Bread at Home
This keto bread is excellent for those who follow a low-carb diet. It allows them to enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches or French toast without sacrificing their carb count. Plus, it’s delicious.
Using more eggs and healthy fat is the secret to making a light and airy keto bread that could hold up to the toaster. When it comes to ghee, you need to cook it longer to remove milk solids. This, in turn, makes it a better option for those with lactose sensitivities.
You can add a teaspoon of stevia to the batter and top it with Paleo ice-cream or berries if you want to get a sponge cake-like bread. Also, replacing an almond meal with almond flour will give a finer texture to the bread.
Use a hand mixer on high speed to beat the eggs. This will give you an airier finished product because of the air incorporated into the eggs. Then, add the melted ghee and beat it, as well as the dry ingredients. After forming a batter, transfer it into a loaf pan.
Don’t forget to line the pan with parchment paper first. Bake at 350F for around 40 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan using a sharp knife, pulling the parchment paper up to get the bread out. Let it cool for ten minutes and then slice.
