Does anyone else just dream about bread? It’s something I never really appreciated enough before I went grain-free, but now I get the green-eyed monster over sourdough toast! Of course, it’s always the simple things that we love and miss the most.
Speaking of simple things; I’ve created the most straightforward Vegan Keto Bread recipe for those of you following a low carb diet, and who can’t have nuts or are looking for an eggless keto bread.
Most keto breads contain eggs, sometimes too many and can taste eggy. Today I wanted to make an eggless keto bread. My almond flour vegan keto bread will be coming to the blog soon (so stay tuned) but I thought I’d challenge myself and start with a nut free vegan keto bread.
I cannot get enough of this recipe. As soon as it’s out the oven it disappears! Gloriously tasty, easy, and nut-free; even your grain-loving friends and family will adore this recipe.
Achieving the perfect texture
For those of you who follow a keto, low carb, paleo, or on any other grain free diet, the world of faux bread can be a bit of a minefield. A major sticking point with keto bread has always been texture. Baking it often meant you had to sacrifice the soft, spongy texture and wholesome toasty flavour of a fresh baked loaf made with wheat flour. But sacrifice no more my fellow grain-free bread lovers, I’m about to introduce you to the secret weapon of keto bread.
Meet your new best friend; psyllium husks.
This truly magic ingredient, in a nutshell, is a gluten substitute. Subsequently it acts as a binding agent and a texture enhancer, to achieve that fluffy, wonderfully chewy loaf, and even without eggs. The days of dry, crumbly, sink a duck keto bread are over; we’re only munching on blissfully soft bread from now on.
