Our high summer temperatures are finally breaking and it is beginning to feel like fall at last. Yippee! We can start up the ovens again. That means homemade bread! I can think of no other comfort food that brings back such fond childhood memories as warm, straight out of the oven bread topped with real butter. Yum!
The cool thing about this bread is that it does not taste eggy like some Keto recipes. It also has a beautiful texture- just like the bread that you are used to seeing.
The initial recipe for this bread comes from All Recipes. It was listed as the BEST Keto bread. I thought that it could be even better by making it a little more savory. Adding the “Everything bagel” spice mix, walnuts and roasted pepitas did the trick. I LOVE the onion/ garlic flavor of the Everything bagel mix, but, of course, that is optional as well. If you are interested, check out the reader comments on the bread at Allrecipes.com for more variations.
Walnuts and peptitas do add a few carbs to the overall count, but not enough to keep me from eating a couple slices when I’m craving a sandwich.
Hearty Keto bread with walnuts and pepitas
The Everything bagel spice mix along with the walnuts and pepitas are completely optional. Without them the bread is still excellent for sandwiches. If you do not use the spice mix, add 1/2 tsp salt to the dry ingredients.
- 6 eggs at room temperature
- 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup roasted, salted pepitas
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 tbs garlic powder
- 2 tbs Everything spice mix (the one that you use to make Everything bagels)
- 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with non-stick, non-aerosol spray. (I like the avocado oil)
Whisk eggs in a bowl until smooth and creamy- about 3 minutes. Add melted butter and olive oil until well combined.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl- mix well. Add gradually into the egg bowl, mixing to form a thick batter.
Pour batter into loaf pan and smooth top with a spatula.
Bake about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Run a dinner knife around the edges and tip the bread out onto a cooling rack.
Enjoy . ❤
