This Keto Bread Recipe is an excellent grain-free, low carb toasting bread. It has a close crumb that holds together well. When you toast it, it keeps its shape, browns nicely, and is sturdy. This zero net carb bread recipe makes awesome avocado toast and is perfect for dipping a buttered slice into your egg yolk!
The main ingredients in this recipe are almond flour, eggs, collagen powder, and psyllium husk. The eggs are whole, no separating and folding into your batter, thus saving time! To enhance the flavor, I added a small amount of sweetener as well as melted butter. It is just enough to give the loaf a nice aroma without making it a sweet bread. This is likely to be my go to recipe whenever I want to make toast or grilled cheese sandwiches!
Why I created my own Keto Bread Recipe
When you start the Keto diet, it is very likely you will miss your bread. For the most part, I only miss it when I want toast, or a grilled sandwich. I have never been a huge sandwich eater unless it was toasted in some way, shape, or form. I tried buying low carb bread, only to find out it tasted like cardboard, and I hated it! So, I went about trying several recipes that I found on the internet to create a loaf of bread that would satisfy Grumpy and me both
There wasn’t a single recipe that I tried that we wouldn’t eat. To be quite honest, I made the Diet Doctor Psyllium Rolls several times when I first started to make bread. Then, I made Cassidy’s Craveable Creations Authentic Bread Recipe and made them into slider buns.
What I thought about the homemade keto bread recipes I tried
The Diet Doctor rolls were fine and was the first keto bread like recipe I made that Grumpy actually would eat. The one thing I didn’t like was they felt rubbery in my mouth. Probably because of the psyllium. However, they smell amazing when baking. Nice and buttery and it felt like yeast bread was in the oven.
For me, Cassidy’s recipe was a step up from Diet Doctor. I made Keto Slider Buns with her recipe. She added the stevia for one, which made it much more pleasant. I even subbed the Psyllium Husks for the powder and they turned out great and not as gummy. But, I still wanted to try a bread that had collagen powder, or protein powder in it to see if it would amp up the texture and give me a more. So, that was my next natural step. To take what I had learned and attempt my own loaf!
How I made my own Homemade Bread Recipe
I used Psyllium Husks (not the powder).
I used the French Vanilla Stevia in the recipe (like Cassidy did).
Egg whites were not folded into the batter. I added the eggs whole and only used 4.
The bread “batter” is not shaped with your hands. It is added to the loaf pan like a quick bread and the top smoothed out.
Step by step process for Homemade Keto Bread

A nice firm loaf of almond flour bread that is perfect for sandwiches and toast!
Gather together your ingredients
Measure ingredients for recipe and set in place.
Whisk together your dry and ingredients separately.
Add almond flour, psyllium husks, collagen powder, and baking powder to mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. In another bowl, whisk the eggs. Place butter in microwaveable dish and heat until just melted.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients
Make a hole in the center of your dry ingredients. Add the eggs and melted butter mixture to dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Transfer batter to loaf pan and bake
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, then spray with cooking spray. Next, transfer the better to the loaf pan and smooth the top out with a spatula. Place in oven to bake.
Once the bread is baked, remove from the oven and place on cooling rack. Cool at least 10 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
My thoughts on Keto Bread with Almond Flour
I wasn’t sure if I was going to regret how I made my recipe or not. I had no idea how the bread would turn out and I got lucky on my first try! The loaf browned up nicely, came out of the pan easily, and was able to be sliced while still warm!
I enjoyed this keto bread fresh out of the oven with a little butter, toasted with butter, and with some mashed avocado and crispy bacon. This bread would also be amazing for making seasoned croutons for your salad!

I highly recommend using Collagen Powder this recipe. The body it gives the bread in this recipe as well as the tender yet firm crumb. I feel this ingredient is what aids in helping to hold the bread together and won’t make it without it!
