You don’t have to give up bread all together on the low carb / keto diet. There are ways to get around using traditional flour for baking bread, AND keep on track with your carb count!
I use some of these recipes to prep beforehand and keep in the fridge or freezer, so that when I feel the need for something starchy, I have a low carb back up.
Here are some of my favorite basic low carb bread recipes found in my searches on the web…
1. Traditional loaf bread
You can make this bread in under an hour, keep in the fridge or freeze it sliced beforehand to make French toast or grilled cheese sandwiches – without sacrificing your carb count:
2. Quick and easy mug bread
This 90 second Keto bun made in the microwave oven is a quick and easy go-to recipe when you need it. It is a good substitute for muffins, buns and hamburger rolls – especially good when toasted. Stock up with almond flour and coconut flour for this one:

4. Keto fathead bagels
