Getting To Know Keto-friendly Bread Ingredients
Making your own keto bread may seem daunting, especially when the recipes call for unfamiliar ingredients like psyllium fiber, almond flour, coconut flour, or flaxseed. Let’s take a closer look at these ingredients.
Almond or coconut flour: These nontraditional ingredients aim to replace the gluten and starches in traditional wheat flour. These alternative flours provide bulk but need eggs or other protein sources to replace the structure gluten typically provides.
Eggs: Because protein is used as a substitute, many keto bread recipes call for whole eggs, egg whites, or whey protein isolate. Some even call for dairy products like mozzarella cheese or cream cheese. These ingredients help create a consistency similar to traditional bread.
Psyllium fiber or flaxseed: These ingredients serve as binders, one of the uses of gluten and starches in wheat-derived bread.
Veggies: Tomato, avocado, lettuce, and pickles add a dash of color, fiber, and vitamins.
How to Use Keto Bread?
Great, you found a recipe you really like now… how do you use keto bread? The same way you would use any white bread!
- Use it as keto sandwich bread! What’s your favorite sandwich, and what do you usually put in it? We love turkey, lettuce, homemade avocado, and some crispy bacon.
- Toast it and serve with some tasty chimichurri sauce, butter, or olive oil.
- Make some delicious grilled cheese… need we say more?
- Top it with some cream cheese – there are many options out there. Some of these recipes pair well with the honey pecan variety.
