Eggless Keto bread is something Ketonians and low-carbers want to perfect to the fullest potential. Over the past few years as I am specialising in the Keto diet and targeted meal plans for individuals, I’ve worked with numerous clients directly and indirectly. Everyone has different needs, goals and requirements. Interestingly, one thing keeps appearing as an obstacle. – I will miss the bread, what can I do? Let’s face it, it’s been the main food for humans for several thousands of years and it left a stronger cultural impact on different nations than any other food. Of course, humans were healthier before the cereal industry, but even prior to it, they kept mixing some sort of ground grains and seeds with water, salt, and bake it.
Life without bread
You will not believe how many times I’ve heard this sentence after creating a Keto-Mediterranean meal plan and presenting it to my clients. It sometimes comes in a different form, but the contest is always the same. Here’s a list of the most common bread-related questions I get:
- Can I at least eat half a slice of normal bread? – No.
- Can I have a cheat day? – No.
- Isn’t the integral bread better? – It’s actually the worst!
- I saw a recipe online, tried it and it tasted too eggy – You can make it without eggs!
- How can make keto bread and count my macros? – A good Keto recipe has to have nutritional values per slice!
- How will it grow without yeast? – There are Keto bread recipes that include the fermentation process, but I don’t recommend them. Baking soda with lemon juice will do the trick.
- How can I stop myself from overeating Keto bread? – Oh, don’t worry, you’ll have troubles finishing the whole 2 slices of this bread.
How to recognise a good Keto bread recipe?
The first thing we have to think about when preparing a Keto bread is how natural are the ingredients? OK, we want to quit our overprocessed and industrialised lifestyle! So, why should we go backwards in our progress by including industrial additives, such as guar gum, xanthan gum or any gum what so ever? You want to get healthier by switching to Keto. Especially if you opt for a Keto-Mediterranean version of healing dieting. Here in the Mediterranean countries, we have a love affair with ancient times and ancient ingredients in our cuisine. Especially the delicious sesame seeds that have been used for thousands of years. Some of these ingredients have proven to be the healthiest for us. They are also, widely, available in the market today.
Following the organic paths
If you want your Keto bread to be nutritious and really serve the purpose in your diet, you’ll not compromise! I know, organic is expensive, especially in countries of the western world. This is a big problem for humanity these days. But, you cannot go for low-quality, overprocessed ingredients! They are usually filled with additives and with suspicious storage history. This is why I created a recipe that cannot go wrong! You’ll not throw it and you’ll enjoy it with all the benefits. Baking your own bread is a kind of art! This is why you’ll need to approach it with all the passion and patience.
Eggless Keto bread creativity
Unlike the majority of Keto bread recipes available online, I decided to make a tasty bread that calls for no eggs! Many people end up disliking Keto bread due to the specific aroma eggs give to the dough. This happens due to the lack of spices and the reaction of eggs with baking soda. Well, as I wrote earlier, eggs are extremely healthy and you should consume more of them. But for this specific recipe, you will not need them. Of course, you can use them for making the most delicious french toast with this bread!
Enjoyment of KMD lifestyle
This recipe is created for all of you who still want to enjoy life, explore the culinary possibilities and gastronomy while following a ketogenic diet and lifestyle. It’s also one of the tastiest bread with perfect macros that many Keto bread recipes fail to deliver. Oh yes, let me not forget – keep your eggs for omelettes, homemade mayo or french-toasting, this recipe calls for no eggs! Very possible! 😉
Eggless Keto breadCourse: Keto breadCuisine: Keto MediterraneanDifficulty: Medium
300 g (10,5 oz) sesame paste – tahini
2 tbsp psyllium powder
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp grass-fed beef gelatine
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
500g (17.6 oz) goat* yoghurt (strained, Greek style)
200 ml (2,7 fl oz) warm water
- Spice mix
1 tsp ground rosemary
1 tsp mahlep (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder
- Place warm water in a deep mixing bowl and add gelatine and psyllium powder. Mix well and let it create a gel-alike mixture. Now add goat yoghurt to this mixture and stir with a whisk.
- Add sesame paste and coconut flour. Keep mixing. Mix apple cider vinegar, salt and baking soda and add to the batter. You can use an electric mixer for better unification.
- Finally, add all the spices and pour the mixture into a bread mould lined with parchment paper. You can sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
- Bake for 30 minutes at 170ºC and then reduce the heat to 120ºC and bake for another 30 minutes.
- If you bake this bread on a wide baking pan, it will not grow significantly so you will get a flat-bread.
- *Goat yoghurt generally has 4g carbs per 100g while cow’s yoghurt offers 11g. If you cannot find goat yoghurt in your market, you can use organic sour cream instead.
- Make sure your psyllium powder is light in colour. If you cannot find it in powdered form, you can ground psyllium husk in a coffee grinder.
- Some ovens will require longer baking. If your bread appears soft in the middle after 60 minutes of baking, return it to the oven for additional 20 minutes at a lower temperature.
- Try to cut the bread very thin to get 24 slices so that you can utilise the nutritional label.
