You follow a ketogenic diet, and you have a desire for bread but think it will take too long to prepare a low carb friendly loaf.

Today we have a keto microwave bread made from flaxseed, and it takes less 10 minutes to make from start to finish.

Keto bread can be made using flours such as coconut or .

This bread recipe uses flaxseed or linseed meal which in the finished recipe looks similar to whole wheat bread.

One slice of this low carb bread will provide 14.5g fat and just 4g of carbs compared to standard 13-15g carbs for a slice of white bread.

We buy whole flax seeds and grind them up for a few seconds in a NutriBullet. I find it gives a fresher taste compared to pre-ground store-bought varieties, but you can use pre-made to save time.

You will also need a small Pyrex glass square dish, a ramekin, or something similar to make your microwave bread and get that square bread shape.

A simple and quick bread recipe to replace high-carb bread products and help your and keep you in ketosis.

  1. I eat this bread every day for breakfast, and frequently for lunch or dinner. There are endless variations on it. I add a tbs. of cocoa and ounce of Torani s f syrup and it makes guilt free chocolate cake. Works great made in a bowl topped with chili, or in the morning topped with fresh fruit and homemade yogurt. I gradually eliminated the added fat, except with the chocolate cake. Just didn’t need it and why add the calories?
    Some versions call for 1/3 cup of flax meal and a spoonful or two of water, but substituting the torani syrup for the water adds a lot of flavor. It’s available in limited flavors at Sam’s Club, or in a wide variety of flavors at Smart and Final, very inexpensively. It is pricy at regular stores.
    The entire recipe only adds 1/2 gram of net carb.

  2. OK, my note (this is my second morning of making this bread):
    1. Please note somewhere that the nutrition information is for 1 serving, not full recipe
    2. Not everybody has “a small Pyrex glass square dish”, it would be great to know measurements for orientation (my first dish was too big)
    3. I found this advice in other recipe, but if you do not like egg-y taste of the product, add several drops of stevia. Adding 3-5 drops of stevia does not make the bread sweet, but lessens the egg-like taste of bread and makes it taste more like a read bread.

    Otherwise I like the simplicity of recipe.


  3. This was brilliant! I added 10g of collagen for added protein and nutrition and I swapped butter for coconut oil and it came out as perfect sliceable, toastable, delicious nutty bread with a great texture and not eggy at all. My new go to (I’ve been let down by so many microwaveable breads in the past: eggy, too dry, too soggy, fall apart, chalky, bland, higher carb etc.)
    With the added collagen macros worked out to a perfect 1% carb/ 75% fat/ 24% protein
