When you switch to a keto diet, one thing most people wonder about is bread. When carbs are off the menu what do you do when you want a sandwich?
Well the good news is that keto recipe adapters have been trying to solve the problem of making bread for years. Almond flour, coconut flour, and flaxmeal can all be used in place of wheat flour to make keto-friendly bread.
All these flours are high in fat and low in carbs so they keep your macros in check. Keto bread is a little different from traditional bread but is still delicious. These flours lack the gluten found in wheat flour, so the elastic texture in keto bread dough is missing. However, by using ingredients such as psyllium husk and xanthan gum, this problem can be solved.
Another way of making bread is using fat head dough which you’ll find in many of these recipes. It’s a way of making elastic dough by melting Mozzarella and cream cheese. Keto bread doesn’t usually use yeast so you can make it far quicker than wheat flour bread that needs to prove and rise, twice.
If you love bread, you don’t have to miss out on a keto diet. Here’s our recipe round up of 15 of the best breads.
