Fluffy Keto Almond Flour Bread
What is keto cuisine?
Which is better flaxseed or psyllium?
- 2 cups almond flour
- ½ cup psyllium husk powder
- ½ cup ground golden flax meal
- 4 teaspoons baking powder, heaped
- 2½ tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 5 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1¾ cups boiling water
- 4 egg whites
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon white sesame seed
Preheat oven to 350F / 175C.
Boil a kettle of water and have it ready to use.
Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, ground flax meal, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl with a metal fork.
Crack the eggs and mix the eggs whites, together with the 2 whole eggs and vinegar lightly, until combined, using a fork.
Add the wet egg/vinegar mixture with the dry ingredients.
Continue with the fork and mix for about ±30 seconds, no need to use a whisk, but you can do it should you prefer.
The reason why I prefer to use a fork, being that the dough gets stuck in the inside of the whisk, and a hassle to get out, and I already used the fork.
Now add the hot water and mix for another 40-50 seconds and towards the end fold the dough from side to side in the bowl.
Use the same action as if you used your hands to fold the dough over.
Again, I used a fork and it works perfectly well.
You will notice that with time the mixture will appear more dough-like.
I prepared a single bread pan and lined it with parchment paper and dropped the dough in the pan and used a wet palm to smooth the dough lightly.
Sprinkle with sesame seed (optional).
Bake for 50 minutes, turn off the oven and leave for another 5 minutes in the cooling oven and then remove from oven.
Pick the bread up by grabbing hold on the parchment paper, while the bread is still hot. Pull it out of the bread pan and let cool on a wire rack
If you can and have enough willpower, wait until it's cold enough to slice.
Butter well and add topping and enjoy.
I had some Cured Salmon Gravlax and oh boy, was that tasty on the freshly baked bread with a cuppa coffee.

I tip I picked up on the web:
If you do feel that the bread tastes eggy, feel free to add approximately 6 drops of Stevia to your bread recipe as it will reduce and take away the eggy taste, Fortunately, the Stevia will not make the bread sweet to the taste, as it only reduces the eggy taste, so give it a try and please let me know what you think. I have not used Stevia in this recipe, but that does not mean you feel the same.

I am using this and the only issue I have is that I did not start earlier! 😢 This is a fantastic feature and plugin, to have on your blog when you share recipes. Your recipe has a set structure and Google loves it. Would you like it and have Google include it and show it as a search result when someone searches for a recipe? Yes OR No?
My guess would be that you will answer YES to the above. For that reason alone, it’s highly beneficial to use the WP Tasty plugin!
You can type it out in the body of your post, but having a recipe card that’s aesthetically pleasing and when laid out for sure has a benefit in that it will keep your readers on your page longer to read the full recipe and hopefully leave a comment and try your recipe. Tasty Links
