Ever wonder how to make keto bread?! I have to say, this is the best keto bread recipe around! This is one of the most highly requested recipes in the keto world. Finally after TWO years of keto, I have found the best keto sandwich bread recipe that will save a lot of cheat days.
The best part of this recipe is that it is SO EASY. Honestly, it takes me about 5 minutes to whip up plus 20-25 minutes in the oven. SO EASY.
Now let’s talk about baking with almond flour and protein powder. There’s no substituting in this recipe. Both are needed, but especially the protein powder.
In regular bread, gluten is a prime ingredients and it is a protein. So when replicating a bread without gluten, you’ll need the extra protein to make sure it rises and acts similar to bread.
For this recipe, I used whey protein isolate. I have tried this with soy isolate and it has NOT worked, however I have heard feedback from other keto-ers that you could replace the whey with casein or egg protein and you will have similar results to the video.
Again, no substitutions.. if you try this with coconut flour, you’ll need another nut-free flour to go with it otherwise the bread will turn out incredibly stiff and more like cardboard and styrofoam. I have tried and the results were NOT pretty.My first book – Keto Cravings – is on Amazon now!
The best loaf pan size for this bread is 9×5.. if you use something bigger, you may have to double the recipe.
This keto sandwich bread will be great for toasting, french toast, grilled cheese and so much more!
Try it with our keto butter chicken, chicken pot pie, lasagna, chili con carne, and chile relleno!

is there any way to substitute xanthan gum with any other ingredient?
You could probably use psyllium husk powder but I haven’t tried it!
I tried your bread rolls that I found on pinterest. They are sooo goood!!! My kids where getting tired of the eggy or cheesy tast of keto bread, and I don’t like the tast and texture of psyllium husk in bread so your bread is our new favorit!
Thank you so much!
So glad you like it!!
I made your Keto White Bread today, or rather a flavored version of it! Unfortunately I did not realize that my Isopure whey powder was banana flavored until after I mixed ingredients together. Just grabbed the jar and missed that it said banana! Decided to go ahead and add some sweetening and other extras and went ahead and baked it. Not what I was going for, but it turned out very nicely. Just wanted to let you know that this is a recipe that you can doctor up. I will have more almond flour later this evening and plan to make the loaf as written at that time, and looking forward to it. Thank you for a great recipe!
I love this bread! It is so easy to make and tastes great. What is the best way to freeze this bread?
Id probably wrap it tightly in seran/cling wrap and then some foil!
Great recipe… just took it out of the oven and I had a slice buttered. no eggy taste! Can’t wait to use this for sandwiches! Next time I think I will add a little flavoring like garlic or onion.
Can’t wait to try this! Is there a whey protein isolate you recommend? I’m new to Keto baking.
Hey! I recommend isopure! It’s the best I’ve found!
I’ve made this bread several times now and just love it. It has a texture kind of between a very fine pound cake and artisan white bread. It toasts beautifully, and is even good just plain, untoasted, with nothing on it. I like to put a few chopped nuts in the dough and then cover the unbaked loaf thickly with seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, etc.). I have been looking for a low carb bread recipe to replicate the fabulous nut and seeds breads I had in Scandinavia last fall, and this really fills the bill!
Do you think this could also be used to make buns?
yes! i’ve done it! check this recipe out: Keto Dinner Rolls
Can I use pea protein isolate instead?
I think that should be fine but I haven’t tried!
Just made your bread recipe and it’s so nice to have bread again. Thank you so much for the wondrful recipe.
What’s the best way to store it?
i stored it on the counter wrapped in cling wrap!
I have whey protein powder, but it does not say isolate. Will it still turn out? Also can you please give a weight for the amount of protein powder. Thanks you
yes it should still work. 2 cups is approximately 130g.
I dont have any kind of whey protein. What can I substitute it with?
you can use another form of protein like casein or egg, but it needs the protein powder unfortunately.
