I have a confession to make. While I LOVE to cook, I’m not a great baker. Am I allowed to say that as a sort of food blogger? Baking just doesn’t come naturally to me, which means I have to work a lot harder at perfecting my baked good recipes on here. The good news is that this keto bread recipe is ridiculously easy (even for me)!
Great News! You Do NOT Have to Give Up Your Favorite Bread, Sandwiches & Pizza to Follow a 100% Paleo or Ketogenic Diet…
There are few foods more comforting and enjoyable than bread…
Whether it is a warm piece of focaccia dipped in olive oil… a sandwich on a chewy baguette… a flaky croissant… or even the simplest slice of toast with butter…
Just thinking about these foods makes your mouth water!
And the blissful “intoxication” you experience when you eat bread is real.
In fact, you might say bread is the original food addiction.
Traditional bread produces compounds called gluteomorphins. And as their name implies, these compounds engage opioid receptors in your brain – the same receptors triggered by drugs like morphine and heroin.
Very similar compounds, called casomorphins, are found in cheese.
That would certainly explain the euphoric rush of pleasure you feel, when biting into a crusty slice of pizza with bubbly, melted cheese!
Following a low carb diet doesn’t have to mean lettuce-wrapped sandwiches for life! With this quick bread recipe, you can have French toast or grilled cheese sandwiches without sacrificing your carb count.
The secret to creating a light and airy keto bread that can hold up to the toaster is using plenty of eggs and healthy fat. Ghee is a butterfat that is cooked longer to filter out the milk solids, which makes it much easier on the digestive system for people with lactose sensitivities.
Grass-fed ghee is also high in the fatty acid CLA, which is beneficial for protecting cells and reducing oxidative damage.
If you want to make this bread taste more like a sponge cake style bread to top with berries or Paleo ice cream, add a teaspoon of stevia or other Paleo approved sweetener to the batter. To get a finer texture, use almond flour instead of almond meal.
Start by beating the eggs using a hand mixer on high speed. This incorporates air into the eggs, which creates an airier finished product.
Next, beat in the melted ghee followed by the dry ingredients to form a batter. Pour the mixture into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes. Use a sharp knife to gently remove the bread from pan and using the parchment paper to lift the bread out of the pan. Cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
Tip: This bread also doubles as delicious savory or sweet muffins. Stir in blueberries to make blueberry muffins (keep in mind, however, that the carb count will go up) or chopped jalapeños and nutritional yeast for a spicy muffin with a cheesy twist.
