With a basic keto bread recipe like this, you have no need to be missing bread while doing keto. This bread slices and toasts beautifully or bake it in a muffin tin for individual keto rolls. 

I know firsthand what it feels like to miss bread when doing a keto diet. I was that girl who LOVED to make homemade bread and made it all the time for our family and friends. To have to say goodbye to bread was not easy. But I knew it was a must if I was going to succeed. 

There is a special backstory to this keto cream cheese bread recipe. You see it was the fans of my very popular  Keto Cream Cheese Pound Cake that made me aware that if you removed the sweetener from that pound cake recipe it made a fantastic bread recipe too. 

When I heard about this, I thought it was a genius idea. I then thought why on earth had this not occurred to me? Well, thankfully my lovely readers pointed this out to me.

The creativity of the low carb community never ceases to amaze me. They have come up with all sorts of hacks to replace the high carb foods they’ve missed.

From using alternative flours in keto baking to making breading from pork rinds, the keto community is known for their out of the box ideas.

The first time I took my readers advice I used my recipe for keto cream cheese coconut flour cake. I removed the sweetener and baked the recipe in a tin for rolls and it was well received. 

But it was time I shared how easy it is to also make a keto bread that’s made with almond flour too.

How To Make Keto Cream Cheese Almond Flour Bread

The following are all the ingredients you’ll need to make this keto cream cheese bread (almond flour). 

I highly recommend that all your wet ingredients always be at room temperature before mixing. It will make the process of incorporating all the ingredients smoother plus the final outcome is always consistent.

Notice that I do not use low-fat cream cheese in this recipe nor do I use the kind of cream cheese that is whipped with air and comes in a tub. Unfortunately, that type of cream cheese will not garner good results so use the kind that comes in a foil brick instead. 

I add one tablespoon of sugar substitute to the batter. This is totally optional. However, traditional white bread has a little bit of sweetness and I wanted to mimic the flavor perfectly. I use a granulated sugar substitute for this. Use your favorite since any number of them will work in this keto cream cheese bread recipe. 

How To Store Your Keto Cream Cheese Bread

This keto bread recipe stores well both sliced or whole in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Just remember to keep it covered so that it does not absorb the flavor of anything else that may be in your fridge.

Alternatively, you can freeze this keto cream cheese bread. You can choose to slice it prior to freezing or freeze the entire loaf whole. Just remember you need to make sure it’s covered well with cling wrap and foil or place the bread slices or whole loaf in a freezer bag. The bread will freeze well for up to 30 days.

  1. Help! My loaf turned out half the height of your pictures! It tastes fine, but is definitely not useable as a sandwich bread.

    • Hi Kristen, There could be many reasons why this could have happened. What size pan did you use? Where the ingredients at room temperature before baking? I encourage you to check out my detailed post that gives all my Keto Baking Tips to assist you.

  2. Mine also turned out half the size and can’t be used as sandwich bread. I followed the directions exactly. Used an 8 inch loaf pan, all ingredients room temperature, etc. The baking powder I used is fresh. Is 1 teaspoon really enough? I was wondering if that could be why the bread didn’t rise as well as your pictures. Would really like to solve this so I can use the bread for sandwiches. Thanks!

    • Hi Lynn, I’ve updated the post to reflect 2 teaspoons of baking powder. Putting only one teaspoon was an error on my part. Hope this helps it rise properly.

  3. Hi. May I ask how many net carbs is this recipe?

  4. I made your delicious Cream Cheese Pound Cake (thank you) and topped a slice with a few sliced strawberries macerated with a scant teaspoon of monk fruit sweetener… it was heaven. I did use an 8″ loaf pan. I’d like to make this bread. Can I double this recipe and use the same pan? Maybe double it and use 3/4 of the batter in the loaf pan and a few mini muffins. How much more time would my bake times be? I really want to go to Ham Sandwich heaven. Thank You Hilda, you inspire me.

    Hi Hilda, thanks for sharing your amazing creations with us. I was wondering if i could use dry yeast in place of baking powder. Thanks.

    • Hi Leide, It’s my honor to serve you. As far as swapping baking powder for yeast that is simply not possible. Because there is no gluten in almond flour it will not rise properly. You can add a couple of tablespoons of yeast that has been proofed as a flavor enhancer but not as a rising agent.
