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.

Serves: 10
Great ‘real-bread’ like recipe for those on a low carb diet.
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter – smooth
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter – extra chunk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tbsp splenda (or other sweetener, optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Blend peanut butter and eggs until smooth (I used my stand mixer) scraping sides of the bowl if necessary.
  3. Add remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour into loaf pan coated with non-stick spray, smooth the top.
  5. Bake 35-40 minutes, let cool before slicing.

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?

This is a great treat to have when bread is on the brain.

    I’ll have to make this for Hubs since it’s gluten and dairy free.

    That looks so much like a regular sweet bread! I keep looking at the recipe and there isn’t even so much as almond flour in it. I’m going to have to try this!

    That sounds really good! Is Keto a type of food lifestyle (like Paleo or Gluten-Free for instance)? I’ve never heard of it before.

      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!

    This sounds good! I think I’ll make it this weekend! 😀

    Do you think this could be made in a breadmaker? I think my hubby would like this.

      Not sure, but I would try it if I had a breadmaker!

    On the few occasions I’ve tried to go carb-free, I’ve really missed doughy / bread-type foods. This looks like a great alternative!

    I love you! LOL! I’m a carb-addict, but if I could have something like this, I could do a Keto diet. Maybe. 🙂

    I’m going to make for my peanut butter loving hubby. He’d really enjoy it.

    Wow, that looks yummy! I definitely want to try it! I am starting a South Beach diet which is low glycemic, and this would fit right in!

    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.

    I have no idea what Keto is, I’ll have to Google it, but this bread sounds good!

    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.

    This is a great recipe! I just made a loaf, and I’m so happy – and full! It’s easy to make and really does have a yummy nutty flavor, and it is indeed very very satisfying. I didn’t have any creamy peanut butter, just chunky, and it still turned out well. Probably a little more airy/less dense than what it would’ve been, but I ain’t complain’n 😉 Thank you!
