Low Carb Keto Peanut Butter Bread Recipe

I’m on day two of starting my keto journey once again, and after having a really rough night of craving sweets, headaches, and a baby that would not sleep I decided I needed to make a low carb/keto bread alternative so I can have some toast with butter.

This was the first time I tried this recipe, and tweaked it a bit from the original. The changes were made partly out of curiosity, and partly out of running out of smooth peanut butter–and wanting a sweeter bread (hence adding a smidge more sweetener than the original recipe called for.)

It didn’t come out as tall as a regular loaf of bread, which is fine by me considering I was just going to eat it as a piece of toast with real butter. It is extremely moist and chewy for being low-carb and not having any flour or grain of any kind. I am in love with the flavor, as it is nutty and sweet and leaves me with a full feeling I don’t get with Oopsie Rolls for example.

Below are the individual ingredients and their carb/calorie/etc amount, when this loaf is sliced into 10 pieces it comes out to roughly 6 carbs per slice. Take into consideration I’m still learning the My Fitness Pal nutrition calculator, and I don’t think this is the net carb amount. But better safe than sorry, right?

      Yes! Keto is similar in many ways to Paleo, but is more strict about the carbs you can consume. Essentially it helps you put your body into Ketosis where you body burns fat instead of carbs/sugars. It is a lifesaver for me!

    I am not familiar with Keto. Will have to look more into this. I love bread, and the added bonus of it being gluten free and dairy free is even better.

    That looks yummy.

    My wife is on a low carb/no wheat diet right now (she’s not intolerant to wheat – it’s a matter of choice) and we have been baking bread with einkorn and Khorasan wheat. When I say no wheat I mean no modern wheat.

    That looks like another good alternative. She loves peanut butter anyway so I might give that a try. Thanks for sharing.
