Do you think living a LCHF Ketogenic lifestyle means no more bread? Well think again! There are many low carb bread recipes out there and I like a few, but I was still searching for a chewy sandwich bread. Recently I had a family member contact me to ask if I had heard of this bread book and the author and if I hadn’t could I look into it. So I diligently took to researching both the author, Kelley Herring, and the book.* Allow me to share one of her recipes that paired with my chowder just beautifully. Out of all the bread recipes I have tried this is one my kids have said they liked the best. I am going to change out the baking powder for baking soda and see if that makes a difference, if it does I will update the recipe.
What you need:
- 3/4 cups blanched almond flour
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt or pink himalayan salt
- 3 tsp psyllium husk powder
- 3 eggs + 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar(braggs or similar with the “mother”)
- 1/4 cup hot water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F(177C), grease a 7.5″x 3×5″ loaf pan(mine is a tad bigger than this as it was the smallest I could find so my loaf is not as tall as I would like). Place a parchment sling in the greased pan, covering the bottom and extending over the edges.
In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients. While it is not totally necessary I find that sifting the dry ingredients works nicely and eliminates lumps.
In another bowl whisk the eggs, egg white and vinegar together. I use my hand blender for this, but as long as they are well beaten that is all that matters. Add the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Pour in hot water and stir vigorously. Batter will be thick and sticky like oatmeal. Spread into prepared pan and transfer to oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Once bread is done turn oven off leaving bread in the oven for 5 minutes, then cool in pan for 10 min and transfer to a wire rack until cooled completely. Store in an airtight container….if you have any leftovers that is!

* The author, Kelley Herring, seemed to have good research and her recipes were spot on. After some independent research I found only high praise from those that had tried her earlier recipes so I decided to take the leap and give it a try. Her newest book is Keto Breads and has many recipes I am anxious to try. The big negative was the ordering process was very painful as it continued trying to upsell more and more things and kept taking me to pages to buy more things. I did not appreciate this at all. I just wanted to buy the book so I could review the recipes, not spend oodles more or try to be upsold on things. I do not like websites that do this type of thing which is why I am not adding a link. That was very disappointing.
