This recipe makes a perfect keto loaf bread for sandwiches or breakfast toast.
I like to call it “gluten free protein bread” because it’s packed full of all the good stuff, without any of the junk – including 12 grams of protein for 2 slices, at just 1.7 net carbs per thick slice and 85% healthy fats.
The end result: an amazingly delicious low carb grilled cheese!
That was THE BEST keto sandwich I’ve ever had. 🙂
I have to say though, I ate three other slices of this low carb sliced bread as is – and loved it plain too, hot or cold.
It’s so good, not grainy or course like other low carb breads, and not spongy or eggy like a lot of keto bread recipes.
It’s not as dense either, although it’s quite firm (holds together well) but also soft & fluffy.
You know I’m not much of a cook and definitely not a recipe developer! So this is the SAME recipe I have repeated multiple times that started out as keto waffles turned into keto blueberry muffins turned into a keto banana walnut bread recipe.
It was that “better than the real thing” low carb banana bread that gave me the idea for this PLAIN keto sliced bread recipe. 😉
Just like those recipes, the STAR ingredient in this bread is a beautiful nut butter. This time a delicious macadamia, cashew, coconut butter blend: Perfect Keto Nut Butter.
I have two discount codes this weekend for BIG savings at Perfect Keto! For this nut butter, you can get 40% off two 8oz jars on this page – this weekend only.
Or use code LC20 for 20% off ANYTHING at Perfect Keto this weekend.
Tip: You can use BOTH codes if you want both deals. Just place two separate orders, one with each code, to maximize your savings. 😉
I fell in love with the Perfect Keto Nut Butter travel packs, so I bought two jars to enjoy at home! Unfortunately they no longer offer the single-serve squeeze packs, but they did just come out with three new flavored nut butters that are delicious: so rich & sweet!
This original nut butter is NOT sweet, so it makes a perfect keto loaf bread for sandwiches or breakfast toast.
You can use a different nut butter, but this recipe works best with a super soft nut like macadamia nut butter or pili nut butter.
The Perfect Keto nut butter is, well… Perfect for this recipe. 🙂
Keto Loaf Bread Recipe
This is smaller than a store bought loaf of bread and while it’s not heavy, grainy or spongy like most low carb bread recipes, it’s quite filling!
You could experiment to make a larger loaf if you like, you’ll just need to adjust the cooking times accordingly.
As is, with the ingredients and amounts below that I used, and cut into 15 thick bread slices, here’s how the macros work out for this bread recipe:
196 calories per slice
88 grams of fat per slice
6 grams of protein per slice
1.7 net carbs per slice

- 1 8oz Jar Perfect Keto Nut Butter* room temperature
- 8 Large Eggs
- 4 TBSP Melted Coconut Oil
- 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- optional: parmesan and/or Everything seasoning for a savory crust
* My coupon code is LOWCARBTRAVELER for a discount at Perfect Keto
You’ll need a loaf-sized silicone mold, or you’ll want to grease a bread pan liberally. I haven’t tried other pans like a glass dish or metal baking pan, so you may find you have to adjust the baking times if you don’t use the same size silicone mold I used – or if you change the recipe in any way.
This silicone loaf mold is PERFECT for this exact recipe, as it is above, and the entire loaf of bread pops right out with NO sticking.
You’ll want a sharp bread knife. I had one in this pretty knife set I got on Amazon. I love how the handles are shaped for easy handling, and how colorful it is. 🙂
This beautiful knife set makes a GREAT gift, btw!;)
It helps if your eggs are not TOO cold, to prevent the melted butter or coconut oil from clumping on you. You definitely want your nut butter to be room temperature too.
I usually whisk my eggs first and set them aside on the counter while preparing everything else.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Stir together the first three ingredients (eggs, nut butter & oil/butter) until smooth. Add the other ingredients. Mix well. I find it easy enough to mix the ingredients by hand with a large spoon, without using a hand mixer.
Place your silicone loaf mold on a baking sheet, and pour the batter into the mold.
Make a “foil tent” to cover the loaf and leave room for rising, and bake it covered the first half hour.
Bake at 325 degrees 50-60 minutes until golden brown.
Optional: Make a blend of parmesan and Everything Seasoning to create a savory top crust, and sprinkle that on the top of the loaf 10-15 minutes before it finishes baking. You want it to “stick” to the bread but not scorch or burn.
Depending on your oven, the dish you use and the size of loaf, cooking time may vary. You’ll know it’s done when it’s golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
* pictured below is my banana bread loaf, made almost exactly the same way just with different ingredients.
Let it cool completely before slicing.
If for some reason it’s not done in the middle when you do slice it, cover it and put it back in the oven on 325 degrees again and keep an eye on it.
Use a sharp bread knife to cut 15 thick & fluffy slices from your loaf.
This loaf bread is IDEAL for making traditional french toast for breakfast, that’s guilt free and keto friendly!
The first thing I did though, was make a very buttery and very cheesy KETO GRLLED CHEESE sandwich.
The grilled cheese had to be my favorite way to use this bread, but like I said earlier… it was even great as a “plain cold slice” straight out of the refrigerator.
Store it in the refrigerator after it cools completely since it’s made with all natural ingredients.
Enjoy this beautiful Keto Loaf Bread Recipe!
I’ve been promising you this one for awhile, since I first made it last Spring, so my apologies for taking so long to get it to you. 😉
Earlier today I found this coupon code to get the Perfect Keto nut butter I used in this recipe for 40% off, so I figured I better get this recipe out to you before that deal expires on Sunday night!
It’s not cheap because it’s made out of expensive, high quality ingredients so almost half off is a GREAT deal.
I don’t know if you’ve ever made your own macadamia nut butter (with just nuts alone, not including the cashews and MCT and coconut butter etc in this Perfect Keto nut butter) but I have – and it takes A LOT of macadamia nuts to make a substantial amount of butter. 😛
Here are the Perfect Keto Nut Butter ingredients by the way. It’s super clean and keto friendly with high quality ingredients:
This coupon code for 40% off the original Perfect Keto Nut Butter only works on two 8oz jars of the original nut butter.
It doesn’t work on the 6-jar bundle or any of the new flavored nut butters – but I have another code you can use if you want to order other things at Perfect Keto.
Use code KETOBUTTER40 for 40% off (this weekend only)
I also scored you a 20% off weekend special that will work on ANYTHING at Perfect Keto – in case you want to get some of my favorites there:
Unflavored Collagen Powder
Keto Bars (Almond Butter Brownie is my fave!)
Original Nut Butter
NEW: Flavored Nut Butters !!!
The deal: get 20% off your order of $40+ with code LC20.
If you go to: http://perfectketo.com/LC20 it will add the discount code automatically at checkout for you.
* (technically, the minimum order amount is $39.98, just in case you want to try out the brand new 2-pack flavored nut butter packs)
discount code: LC20
TIP: You can use BOTH codes if you want both deals. Just place two separate orders to maximize your savings!
If you ONLY want two jars of the original Perfect Keto nut butter, the KETOBUTTER40 code gives you the best deal. If you want to get the 6-Jar deal which is already discounted 25%, use code LC20 instead to get an additional 20% off this weekend.
6 Jars with code LC20 = $64.76
2 Jars with code KETOBUTTER40 = $21.60
Either way it comes out to almost exactly the same price per jar, you just have to use the right code for 2 jars or 6 jars to get it that cheap while both these offers are valid this weekend.
Honestly it’s EXPENSIVE nut butter (for good reason), so I only get it when it’s on sale like this myself. 😉
I love their bars too, and a lot of people have mentioned the price of those. ALL bars are expensive in my book (even the ones on store shelves) so I definitely watch for the deals.
But I will say that the Perfect Keto bars actually satisfy me and hold me over WAY better than other bars, I’m guessing due to the collagen and mct plus the 11 grams of protein etc. But they actually make for a good meal replacement, which makes them a good value. Especially when I get them during sales like this one. 😉
If you already have the original Perfect Keto nut butter, whip up a loaf of this keto bread and make some DIVINE french toast this weekend!
Take advantage of the sale, or one or both discount codes this weekend too. If you’ve been wanting to try the new Perfect Keto flavored nut butters or their bars, or need to restock on collagen powder or mct oil powder, it’s a great opportunity to do that!
p.s. I do NOT use anything with exogenous ketones so skip those products at Perfect Keto, including their “base” which has those too.
I recently did a Perfect Keto Q&A Video, specifically about what I use (and don’t use!) and how I use their collagen powder & MCT oil:
