Best Keto Gluten Free Bread
Perfect gluten-free keto sandwich bread. Easy paleo bread recipe without yeast! This almond flour sandwich bread tastes amazing, holds together, and is easy to make! Nothing like homemade bread.
Couldn’t stop the bread cravings this week, so I decided to jump in the deep-end and create a massive loaf of yeast-free sandwich bread.
Even wheat eaters will love this bread loaf!
Trust me, we have plenty of them in this house and they all went crazy for this bread!
We made sandwiches, spread jam and butter on big slabs of sandwich bread, and even made some egg-avocado toast (of course).
The sweet almond-y base makes for totally delicious mellow buttery flavor and a beautiful golden crust.
making keto bread a thing
This bread is literally so easy to make…
Which is one of the many reasons I fell in love with it. 🙂
I wanted to try my hand at a keto bread recipe, because I’ve received a lot of interest in the keto diet.
Personally, I haven’t delved into it, but I don’t mind any excuse to bake; so here we are.
Did I mention the loaf taste buttery as heck?
Dreaming about again right now…
When one slice isn’t enough…
Then stash the leftovers in the freezer in these handy reusable stasher bags.
I love using these for stocking up freezer goods.
I try and meal prep when I’m cooking for the blog throughout the week.
These handy storage bags sure make it easier for me to stay organized.
By the way, totally not sponsored- just a fellow fan over here that nerds out about kitchen things all day.
Enjoy every slice of warm homemade bread.
There is nothing better than diving into a loaf of fresh bread and going crazy with the toppings… 🙂
Hope you like it!
Until next time.

I’m curious as to the flax meal. Whenever I’ve used flax meal, even in lesser amounts, my baking smells fishy. How do you avoid the smell of flax? Thank you.
Hi Shamim, I never have a fish smell when baking with flax and I love baking with it! It really helps with paleo baking to hold things together and make a beautiful crust on breads.
The fishy smell means the omega 3 content of the flax has oxidized and turned rancid. This is why I never buy flax MEAL. Grinding the flax fresh and using it within 20 minutes will not produce a randic fishy odor. It will also be far more nutritionally beneficial and digest much better.
Don’t eat any seeds that smell like fish—that is nature’s way of telling you it’s spoiled.
Thank you Dr. Hurt. This is good information for all of us trying to eliminate things in our diets that cause allergies and other digestive issues. 🙂
Can this be made without eggs
Hi Geneva, I haven’t tried this recipe egg-free, but it might work with flax eggs… it would be different for sure!
Is the calories count for the whole bread or per slice
Hi Elizabeth, it’s per slice.
Is it possible to make 1/2 the recipe into buns? That is a lot of stuff in one loaf…sure there isn’t a typo? 1 cup of flax meal? 8 eggs? As is the loaf would be quite expensive.
Hi Sara, it is all for one loaf, but yes- you could make some of it into buns.
How would this work in a breaks machine?
Hi Jenn, it should- I haven’t tried it to be sure, but that sounds great. 🙂
Could you use olive oil in place of coconut oil?
Hi Nicole, I feel olive oil would have a really strong flavor if it was subbed for coconut oil.
What can be substituted for tapioca flour? I don’t have any and would like to try the recipe. Thanks.
Hi Lena, you can sub tapioca for arrowroot flour. 🙂
Can I make this without the husk powder?
Hi Jackie, yes- you can sub it with more golden flax meal.
If I use flax eggs and also that cup of flax meal would that be to much flax.
Hi Geneva, I’m not sure how else you would do it- not sure that a flax egg will work so well, it’s probably worth a try, but it will probably be gummy and not the same. Make sure to slice it and leave it to “dry out” before eating, because that should help with any gumminess from a flax egg. Hope that helps!
Is there a good substitution for psyllium husk?
Hi Jenny, my best bet would be flax meal. 🙂
I don’t have flax or husk can I use arrow root and rice flour?
Hi Tasha, it will change the recipe and I’m not sure how well it will work, but you can give it a try! I feel like it will either be really dry with the rice flour or really gummy with the arrowroot…
Hi Kaylie, have you tried the recipe with Ottos cassava flour? It’s what I have on hand. Thanks!
Hi Virna, I do not- I used Anthony’s Goods brand of cassava flour.
Hi Kaylie…..I made it today. It’s delicious….Love it. Thanks for the recipe 🙂
Great to hear Ida!
I made this twice yesterday. Baked the second time for 80 minutes. Knife came out clean, but after cooking and slicing, the center is still moist. I tried to dry them out a bit but no luck. Do I need to just cook longer? The only change I made was to add more flax since I cannot use the psyllium husk powder.
Hi Brandi, the more flax you add the more it will be gooey and not dry out- I suggest using psyllium husk for the same results.
This recipe looks so much simpler than the other gluten-free bread recipes out there. I am tempted to try but hesitate using 8 eggs. Any idea what could potentially happen if I use 4 eggs instead?
I don’t know how that would go over- it would be too thick and wouldn’t rise as much.
Thanks for the delicious bread.
Just made this.. it’s delish! I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller loaf pan. It came out as smaller slices (naturally), but love the way it rose! Tastes like a hearty gluten-full bread!!
Great to hear Anna! Thank you 🙂
Is there Substitute for tapioca flour (and not arrowroot)? It doesn’t seem very keto friendly with that high of carbs and I think it’s because of the tapioca flour.
Hi Melissa, can you do flax meal in it’s place? That should work okay.
Is it’s using tapioca flour/starch or cassava flour? I get confused between cassava flour and tapioca flour all the time.
Hi Lani, tapioca is different than cassava flour. 🙂
Kaylie- this is the best best gluten or grain free bread EVER! And I have been trying different recipes for 7 years! I’m so happy I found this recipe!! My 2 year old loves it as well and I feel so much better feeding this to her since it is full of nutrients from eggs, almond, flax etc and not just rice flour and starch like your standard gluten free loaf we would buy at the grocery store. I also broke down the price of the bread and for what I pay for pastured eggs, flours and all other ingredients the price per loaf came out to about $6.50, which in my book is amazing! We pay that or more for a junky loaf of gluten free bread at the store! If you compare that price to your standard loaf of wonderbread, obviously it’s much higher but you can’t really compare anything to wonderbread since it’s basically garbage 😬 Thanks again for the recipe!!!
That is so amazing to hear, thank you Cara!
Delicious! I’ve made it twice and my family loves it!! We haven’t had regular gluten filled bread for months so they LOVE getting to have sandwiches and bread for breakfast! Thank you!!
Side Note: I have made probably 70% of everything on your blog and every single time I make it 1) everyone loves it and 2) it turns out the exact way you described it! Thank you for the videos (youtube and instagram) and for the clear instructions. My parents always joke with me and say, “Oh is this your paleo friend’s recipe?” haha even though we’ve never met but it’s because I am always cooking your recipes! I appreciate you! Thanks for making all these awesome recipes!!
Oh hiiii Kelsey! Thank you so much, that is so sweet- and so nice to “meet” you, such a loyal fan haha! 🙂
How big are the slices? 1/2 inch?
Yes, probably around there… I honestly can’t remember exactly!
Your bread recipes look great but the ones I’ve wanted to try all contain flaxseed, which I’m allergic to. (I can’t use Chia seeds either ). Any good substitutions to use for the flaxseed? Thanks in advance.
Hmm, I’m not really sure?
It says 22 carbs?? Per slice?? Do you recommend this wonderful bread for Keto? There a lot of carb in it, right?
Hi! I’m from Argentina and here it is very difficult to find tasty GF breads, or even with real healthy ingredients. I’ve done this recipe on Sunday and turned out incredible. I’m so happy!!!!!! I really thank you for share this with people that have health problems and don’t find a way to eat tasty.
I’m intolerant to millet flax, so instead i’ve used Rice Flour and turned out excellent!.
Can the tapioca and arrowhead flour be omitted?
Hi Kathy, not in this recipe unfortunately.
I baked this recipe today and this is really good, thank you so much.
Thank you Maria!
How does this taste? Is it eggy? I’ve tried paleo bread recipes on the internet but I haven’t found one that doesn’t taste like egg…
can i use brown flax meal instead of gold?
Hi Layla, yes- I have tried that and it works!
Would it work if I use liquid coconut MCT oil rather than the melted solid coconut oil?
Hi Cassie, I’m not sure- I haven’t baked with MCT oil… can you consume that much of it at one time?
Just to help the legitimacy of things, Tapioca flour is not Keto Friendly. It is an absolute no-no. It has nearly no fibre or any protein. It is a carbohydrate. Hope this helps.
