Keto Soul Bread is a winner all round! 

A keto bread that is very easy to make. It isn’t terribly expensive and it is pretty damn great for toast and sandwiches. What’s more is this is one keto loaf that is safe for the school lunchbox and playground. A delicious nut free bread recipe!

If you have been searching for the perfect low carb bread recipe that is grain free and suitable for the ketogenic diet and nut-free lunchbox recipe then look no further.

Dietary Variations of Soul Bread

  1. Egg Free I have yet to trial this for an egg free bread recipe I am sure it would work perfectly with some whipped aquafaba.
  2. Dairy Free – swapping the whey protein for pea protein, cream cheese for this fabulous dairy free cream cheese recipe and the cream for coconut yoghurt for the cream. Where this is a will there is a whey…I mean way!
  3. What is great is that this loaf is already a nut free bread recipe, grain free, gluten free, sugar free, and seed free. No bits! The kids will love it!

This recipe is just a simple adaptation of Souls Song – Soul Bread.

It is crunchy on the outside and soft in the centre.  A great bread to add a slab of butter and a scrape of Vegemite. Also fabulous for a cheese and tomato toastie!

Soul Bread Super Star Ingredients.

Before you ask Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) should not be substituted. WPI keeps the bread low carb, high protein, and actually helps provide the structure of the bread.

Bob’s Red Mill Double Acting Baking Powder is seriously the magic I sprinkle in many of my baked recipes. In baking this kind of baking powder produces some bubbles when the ingredients are mixed. THEN most of the rising occurs once heat is applied as the powder produces more bubbles under the heat. I get this product through Elite Health Supplements.

  1. A fabulous bread alternative on keto

  2. I am looking forward to giving this one a go…. I’ve only made oopsie bread once (rolls) but found it eggy so am keen to try your recipe 😀

  3. Is there a good replacement for the unflavored whey?

    1. You can use almond meal, but the whey contributes to the lightness of the crumb

  4. You’re link for Instagram doesn’t work.

    1. Thanks so much Michelle. I needed to fix a few socials in that banner.

  5. what is thickening cream?

    1. Dollop cream. Whatever is the thickest cream you have in Canada

  6. If I would like to make mini loaves, how long would I cook them for please?

  7. Best Keto bread ever! Light and fluffy and it tastes like bread, looks like bread, freezes and toasts like bread. It’s amazing!

    1. Thanks so much for the great review Kerri x

  8. This bread is the closest thing to white bread !! I slice it and freeze it in individual slices and it defrosts well and is also delicious toasted. It is great to have a sandwich or even better a toasted sandwich. It’s one delicious versatile loaf of bread .

    1. Thanks Lynda you are a gem x

  9. finally a bread that I can slice and toast to have my favorite avocado toasts. I was missing this treat.

    1. So happy that you enjoyed the bread Carole x

  10. This recipe looks and sounds delicious, especially the cream cheese part! And doesn’t have coconut or almond flour, neither of which I can have. Question for you, can I substitute pea protein powder for the whey powder?

    1. You sure can Marie.

  11. This bread is amazing! It actually toasts almost as good as carb loaded bread. Tastes good too!

  14. Amazing. Worked perfectly the first time. Had to slice it up and quickly put it in the freezer before I ate it all.

    1. Haha! Glad you enjoyed it Tracy

  15. Made this last night, very quick and easy, and it made a good-sized loaf also, not those tiny little things you normally get with a paleo or keto bread. Also tastes amazing, not eggy – thanks so much!

  16. I only have choc and vanilla Isopure, could I use Egg White Protein Powder by any chance?
