Hi Maya, I’m new to your website and I’m anxious to try out this bread recipe. I’m helping my 27 year old son lose some weight. He’s on some pretty potent medication that has caused him to crave carbs thus putting on quite a bit of weight over the past few years. Since I’m his caregiver and also a Certified Nutritionist, I’m looking for some healthy alternatives to make his transition a bit easier and he loves bread.
I haven’t tried this recipe with anything other than cream cheese. The cream cheese is a pretty integral part of this recipe and is something I consider a “keto staple.” With that said, you could try using mascarpone cheese as a substitute. Or, take full-fat cottage cheese, blend it up in the food processor or blender, and use that as a substitute. Whatever you do choose as a substitute, make sure it has plenty of fat in it. Hope this helps!
Alyssa, one more thing. Both the bowl and the beaters need to be spotlessly clean. If there is one hint of oil anywhere the whites will not beat properly. Nicole is correct about not using a plastic bowl. Plastic will even absorb oil to say nothing of the microscopic amounts that get into the surface when it’s scratched. When baking it is always best to use a metal or glass bowl for all of your mixing.
This is now my go to for lo-carb bread recipe. It is SO EASY! I made it last weekend, Instead of Xanthan gum I used konjac root powder, it worked just fine, my baking time was more like 50 minutes and I did cover the top loosely with foil for the first 15 minutes so the top wouldn’t brown so quickly (maybe why my cooking time was so long?) I also added a pinch of Bakers yeast (brewers yeast is NOT gluten free) just for flavor and stevia 3/4 T. This bread makes really good grilled cheese or avocado toast! Very yummy! Thanks for this recipe!
As I'm sure you know, eating chocolate bars and lollipops aren't exactly conducive to keeping in ketosis. But you can still enjoy treats on a Keto diet...like these amazing Keto peppermint cups. The delicious filling uses a mixture of coconut butter and coconut oil flavored with peppermint extract and stevia. But, be careful, peppermint tends to be pretty strong, so a little goes a long way.

What happens when you dont eat for 20 hours
Hi Ashley, Usually egg whites take just a few minutes to beat to stiff peaks. Definitely not 40 minutes. Old eggs can sometimes be the culprit, or a bit of leftover fat/grease from something else in the bowl can prevent stiff peaks (this is especially common when using a plastic bowl). Lastly, it could be that your mixer isn’t powerful enough to beat that many whites to stiff peaks, but this reason is a last resort and probably less likely. Cream of tartar is a huge help in reaching stiff peaks so you can try adding that next time.
To Make Sure You Get the Best Rise: Make sure your baking powder and yeast are fresh. Let your egg whites come to room temperature before using. Cook for the recommended amount of time (and make sure your oven is properly calibrated). Measure all ingredients carefully (we recommend weighing the dry ingredients). Try to avoid the temptation to slice it while it's hot because this can cause the loaf to fall.
3 months intermittent fasting
I found your recipes and was eager to try them! This morning I made the almond and coconut flour bread, blueberry muffin and the pancakes for family breakfast. They were all delicious!! I was amazed at how moist they were. However, even thought the bread was light, it did not achieve the height shown with the recipe. I need advice on how to achieve a higher loaf. My family was delighted at the healthier version of our Sunday morning breakfast. Thank you, Maya, for the time and effort spent in perfecting and sharing your recipes.
How many eggs should I eat for breakfast on keto
I’ve been on Keto for about a week. I’m one of those people who said I could never give carbs or sugar. I’m still not sure that I am, but for week one so far so good. I made your keto bread and it really helped me get through the weekend. I had a brunch to attend at a relative’s house and I was able to bring this bread, toast it up and partake of all the toppings they had to offer. And as I’m typing I’m eating a tuna melt made by frying the bread in butter and topping with cheese and Tuna. I feel like I’m eating a real lunch. So for now, thanks for helping me power on!
