The Keto way of eating has been the easiest “diet” I have ever tried… and boy have I tried a lot!
Bacon, Cheese, and avocados… oh my!
But let’s be honest, Eventually, a burger needs a bun. A BLT needs bread, and how in the world was I supposed to make a panini? Can’t exactly sub that out for cauliflower, lol. In a later post I will share my top 5 breads I have tried. Of the 5 successful recipes, this “loaf” bread has been my favorite. It doesn’t mask itself with cheese, it doesn’t have a ton of ingredients, and it is the closest I have found to normal bread.
Let’s get started. Before I get my bake on, I always set the mood. What better way to try out a new recipe than with a little T-swift in the back ground. So, I turned on my Pandora to my Taylor Swift station and gathered my ingredients.
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 6 large eggs separated
- 4 tbsp butter melted
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 pinch of salt
It is so much easier for me to bake when I have everything laid out in front of me to work with. I hate having to stop and measure things or dig through my pantry looking for ingredients when I have already started a recipe.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
- Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. I started out with a strainer and tried to simply crack the eggs into the strainer over a bowl. Let’s all take a minute to laugh together at how that went. Yolk was everywhere. I resorted to the harder way of using the egg shells to separate the eggs. I recommend having a yolk bowl, a whites bowl, and a bowl just for separating the two over. That way if you mess up you don’t potentially waste all of your hard work.
- Mix the whites and the cream of tartar in your electric mixer. You can do this by hand with a whisk, but you better be a very quick whisker. They must be mixed until they come to a foamy white texture.
- In your food processor, or in my case- my Ninja Mixer with the sharp blade attachment, mix the remaining ingredients. Once they are fully combined you can add the egg whites.
- Once everything is mixed really well and lump free, pour your mix into your VERY WELL GREASED/SPRAYED loaf pan.
- Put in to your pre-heated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Make sure to check it at the 25 minute mark.
- Once you remove it from the oven, let it cool for a good 20 minutes.
Now, is the best part! What all am I going to do with this delicious bread? Toast for breakfast? PB&(sugar free) J, my aforementioned beloved panini? D all of the above!! The options are endless and at only 2 carbs a slice, I think I will have my bread and eat it, too!
