KETO ALMOND BREAD (RECIPES)

Wow! It’s another beautiful day…. Guess what was running through my mind during the weekend A KETO ALMOND BREAD. A lot of us can’t just do without bread right but do you know you can eat bread with little or no sugar? For me its just the perfect breakfast and dinner.....



Almond flour has a nutritional advantage over many processed flours in that it contains the same nutrient profile as whole almonds. Whole or ground, almonds have more nutrients per serving than any other tree nut. The terms almond flour and meal are often used interchangeably. Almond meal is coarse and prepared from whole almonds with skins. Made from blanched almonds after the skin's been removed, almond flour has a finer texture. 


Ok so as I said earlier, I will be discussing the ingredients, steps in baking an almond bread and its benefits… So sit back!!!

  • 4 tbsp. Butter melted / mayonnaise
  • 3 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar (NOT COMPULSORY THO)

Steps in baking an almond bread
  1. Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
  2.  Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.
  3. Mix the egg yolks, 1/3 of the beaten egg whites, melted butter or mayonnaise, almond flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined. This will be a lumpy thick dough until the whites are added.
  4. Add the remaining 2/3 of the egg whites and gently process until fully uniformed. Be careful not to overmix as this is what gives the bread its volume!
  5. Pour mixture into a buttered pan or a ceramic dish. Bake for 30 minutes.
N.B: You could bake inside an oven or a microwave….
Consuming a diet rich in monounsaturated fats, like those found in almond flour, can help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of blood clots and lower blood pressure. The American Heart Association recognizes that whole and ground almonds meet total fat, cholesterol, sodium and vitamin requirements, qualifying them as heart-healthy food. Almonds and almond flour can display the AHA Heart-Check mark symbol on product packaging.

Almond flour is an excellent grain-free baking option. Its protein and fat content makes it an ideal option for quick breads, muffins, cookies and bars. The protein, fat and fiber in almond flour will also contribute to satiety, the feeling of fullness between meals, which can assist with weight management. In many recipes, almond flour can replace wheat flour in a one-to-one ratio for seamless substitution. Store almond flour in the refrigerator to preserve freshness between uses.
