Best Keto Bread Recipe – No eggy taste

Best Keto Bread Recipe – No eggy taste

Share This Recipe

In my opinion this really is the best keto bread recipe.  Even better than my others!

It’s funny to me this bread doesn’t quite look as great as the Daily Keto Bread, but yeah in my opinion I actually think flavour-wise and versatility this bread totally wins out.

The Best Keto Bread gets a big tick for flavour, the texture in your mouth is good, and toasting is bloody awesome.  Read on for some great keto bread variations.

Best Keto Bread Recipe Variations

I have successfully made this grain free bread recipe into burger buns, and pizza bases.  Basically I did them as a 45 g and 70 g ball that I flattened and pushed out to a large disc and cooked for around 15 minutes and then store in an airtight container until you want to use or freeze as easy to use bases.

I have to say my first test got eaten just topped with loads of butter and vegemite.  Sooooo good!

Keto Bread Consistency

Just an FYI on making this bread.  The dough is a dough not a runny batter like a lot of my other recipes.  It is stiff and needs some wet hands to push it gently and shape it in the tin before baking.  It works perfectly in a tortilla press for pizza bases or burger buns as well.

While there is rosemary in the recipe trust me when I say it doesn’t overpower or even seem wrong, even if eating with peanut butter or vegemite.  For the pizza bases I added mixed Italian herbs as well.

This bread is more dense and not unlike a gentler consistency of pumpernickel.  Just like pumpernickel, cut this bread very thin.  It still toasts amazing and works in any meal.

Megan’s tips on getting the perfect rise

  1.  Use the right size tin.  If you only have a larger tin then increase your mix size by half or double.  This will not only give you a fully risen loaf, but will ensure you do not end up with a flat dry loaf
  2. Measure your eggs.  As we all know eggs sizes are crazy and all weigh so different please ensure you have 520g of eggs.  Even if you have a whole dozen eggs in there to get to this weight, TRUST ME it will not taste eggy!
  3. Score your loaf.  If you deeply score the top of the loaf before placing in the oven this allows for the leavening and rise of the loaf4.Use Bobs Red Mill Baking Powder.  It is a double action and will help the rise of the loaf. Always check your baking powder is in date and is kept in a cool dry place
  4. Freshly ground flaxmeal works better in baking
  5. Almond meal can be substituted for sunflower meal.
  6. Coconut flour can be substitute for hemp flour.
  7. If you only have psyllium husks, please mill to produce a fine powder

Keto Bread Flavour

It is delicious!  No weird eggy taste, or nutty weirdness.  I think it is just lovely.  It has well and truly past the Dave test hence my need to do a double batch today, which by the way fits in the Thermomix® perfectly, just be sure to give it an extra knead to ensure it is properly mixed.

  1. Lovely tasting bread, toasted really well will definitely make this again!

    1. Thanks Sharon. Glad you enjoyed it

  2. This bread is so good. I’ve missed having Vegemite on toast and this bread toasts really well. It slices easily into 20 slices and also freezes really well. It passed the taste test with my family and eggs on toast or a chicken, cheese and avocado sandwich for breakfast or lunch is now possible thanks to this awesome new bread.

    1. thanks Lynda.Glad you liked it

  3. I made this on the weekend and used ground sunflower seeds for a nut free version & it was great! Texture wasn’t eggy neither was the taste.

    1. Thanks for the review Camille. I am glad you enjoyed it

  4. i just made it today.. its fantastic, my new keto bread for sure!

    1. Thanks for your feedback Debbie

  5. Made this and had it toasted with butter and vegemite. It was delicious. No eggy taste and very filling. Very easy to make as well.

    1. Thanks for the review Leanne. I agree it is fab with a lot of butter and Vegemite.

    2. Omg yeeeessss I miss Vegemite on toast the most

  6. Made this last night. Really easy to make and came out great.
    Very nice bread. Dense but that’s how I like my bread. I left out the rosemary and didn’t feel it was missing anything. Hubby even liked and and sent a photo and the link to a Work colleague who is doing keto.
    Will definitely be my staple bread recipe for the future.

    1. It is always good to hear that the hubby likes it. Most of them are harsh critics

  7. A lovely well risen loaf. I chose to leave out the rosemary and enjoyed a slice with butter and Lchf lemon curd. Very simple recipe……thanks

  8. A lovely well risen loaf. I chose to leave out the rosemary and enjoyed a slice with butter and Lchf lemon curd. Very simple recipe……thanks

    1. Thanks for the review Mia and the use of your fab pictures

  9. It’s really the best keto bread. It’s very tasty and great plain or as toast. I slice mine and keep it in the freezer for an easy sandwich or eggs on toast. So good to have something that will soak up egg yolk.

  10. I really enjoyed this bread, it was really tasty and made wonderful toast! Really fixed my craving for toast and butter. It was also really easy to make sure will definitely become a regular on our menu.

  11. Is there any coconut taste (at all) in this bread please?

    1. Absolutely none that I detect Leisa.

  12. We love this bread, I’ve made into traditional bread shape along with burger buns, baguette, focaccia. It’s super tasty & amazingly versatile.

    1. Thanks Christine.

  13. Love, love, love this bread. It comes out nice and crispy. It also toasts well, and finally I can smear garlic on a keto bread that does not crumble; add butter, sardines and a bit of lemon juice, yum

    1. Oh yum! Now I may need to pop a tin of sardines in the fridge for tomorrow!

  14. This bread is so delicious and easy to make!

    1. Thanks Kathryn x

  15. I made this for the first time this morning and WOWSER! Its just perfect! I threw a wee bit of Basil in to sub the rosemary I didnt have and it tasted great. Happy with the non crumbly consistency which held up to my fave cheese on toast brekkie…Just a fabulous loaf of ‘like-real bread’

    1. Glad you like it Shelleen. I am pretty happy with this recipe.

  16. Hello Megan, I am enjoying a slice with butter and vegemite right now; and a creamy coffee alongside! What’s the penalty for not waiting the full cooling hour? 😉 Best Keto Bread I’ve tried so far! Thank you!

  17. I must have done something wrong because my mixture poured into the tin and it wouldn’t score and the mixture just covered over again. It didn’t rise as much as the picture but the taste was there and it toasted well, so I have no idea what went wrong. I used my Thermi and everything got weighed even the eggs.

  18. Just made this for the second time. Delicious! Whisked the eggs the second time to get a slightly bigger rise ☺️

  19. Hi my wife doesn’t like coconut can I just use more almond flour?

    1. You sure can Michael

  20. Going to try this today sounds yummy. Just to set my mind at ease. So net carbs are 1 if made and serving size as directed. At this stage in my weight loss I can’t waste 4 GMs carbs on a slice of bread. TIA

    1. Yes Debra it is only 1g net carbs per slice.

  21. Thanks Megan

  22. So is it 1 net carb per slice?

    1. Yes it is

  23. Mine didn’t rise so well …. made entirely as directed. Any thoughts?
    Taste is brilliant though, going very nicely at the moment with mashed avocado and lemon pepper. Incredibly easy to throw together.
    To those who are asking – you can’t even taste the coconut, so don’t worry about subbing!

    1. Hi Lindy, 3 things really affect rise. Bobs Red Mill Double Action baking powder makes a HUGE difference. The eggs regardless of how many need to weigh 560g in total weight. Lastly pan size if you use a larger pan this can also affect the rise considerably. I don’t think it affects the taste at all but these are the main 3 things I find work better. (as a side not I also think fresh milled flaxseeds also help as well) Glad you like it, and I agree I taste no coconut flour in the mixture.

  24. Might be a silly question but are the eggs weighed with or without shells

    1. Yes they are jenny

      1. Hi. Is this with or without the shell? Thanks Megan.

        1. Yes Kim

  25. Oh wow, thanks a bunch Megan, a hit with my family! Even my 9 month old adored it! Def a keeper and will be sharing this with family and friends!💖

  26. Making this right now……. wish me luck 🙏🏼🙏🏼

  27. Just wondering if this can be made in a bread maker at all?
    Thinking I may try and see if it works!

    1. I haven’t tried it in the bread maker sorry.
