If you’ve been monitoring your carbs and missing bread, my recipe for keto cream cheese bread recipe is about to make the diet easier.
This recipe produces a great tasting low carb bread that is airy, light, fluffy, and best of all it’s made with easy to come by ingredients.
Since this is a keto coconut bread, not only is it grain-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free, it’s also nut-free.
The use of coconut flour makes it a recipe option for individuals who have to avoid nuts due to allergies but are able to consume coconut flour. A major plus since the majority low carb bread recipes have nuts, which is a definite problem for those with nut allergies.
But even if you are not an individual that has a nut allergy this delicious coconut flour option also happens to be lower in carbs than their nut flour counterparts.
Not a fan of coconut flour? Well, if it’s a flavor thing, I assure you that this recipe isn’t dry and dense like other coconut flour bread. I’ve managed to crack the code on using coconut flour that ensures that the final product is not only moist but that the flavor of coconut is quite mild.
With that being said if you prefer a nut flour version my Keto Cream Cheese Almond Flour Bread is a favorite with my readers.
In the end, both these keto cream cheese bread recipes make a great white bread option.

Keto Cream Cheese Bread Recipe
I am excited to share a little backstory as to how this keto cream cheese bread recipe came to be. It’s a shout out to my loyal readers.
You see apparently for a good bit now people have been using my Keto Cream Cheese Pound Cake recipe and making it into a bread substitute.
How? By simply leaving out the sugar substitute in the cake recipe.
When I heard about this, I thought it was a genius idea. I mean it doesn’t get easier than this to make a Keto Bread option.
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.
Easy Keto Bread Recipe
But when I heard that many in the keto community were using our well-loved low carb pound cake to also make a Keto Bread, well if floored me.
My first reaction was wow why had I not thought of this? Thankfully, my smart followers figured it out all by themselves.
The first time I became aware of this trend was when someone tagged me on Instagram with their picture. Then I kept seeing others stating they were doing the same thing.
On Instagram, Kate was thanking her friend Tracy for the idea. The picture below is the one she tagged me on. Doesn’t her Keto Cream Cheese Bread look stunning?
Well needless to say I was curious. But since I still had a list of other keto recipes I wanted to create for you all, I still had not attempted to try this myself.
But it was always in the back of my mind because I knew that it would help so many of you looking for an easy keto bread recipe.
I finally decided it was time to use this technique when I created a Keto Cream Cheese Coconut Flour Pound Cake.
I knew then that it was time to stop holding back this brilliant idea with you all.
Well, all I can say I am so glad that Kate and others let me in on their keto hack. Because both my almond and coconut flour pound cake recipes when you remove the sweetener make an excellent white bread substitute.
In both instances, it produces a light and airy keto bread that can be sliced and toasted easily. Can I hear an amen for easy keto wins?
Since my goal has always been to offer you recipes that can be created with ingredients that can be found at most grocery stores, I was thrilled with the results.
I also love that this keto cream cheese bread recipe was birthed from my readers’ ingenuity. It’s a lovely reminder of how generous the keto community is and why I can’t do this by myself.
I truly need your input, support, and encouragement. So please don’t be a stranger and let know how I can best serve you.
How To Make Keto Cream Cheese Bread
A few things to keep in mind when making this recipe is the importance of having your eggs, cream cheese, and butter at room temperature before mixing. Trust me when I tell you that it makes a big difference in the final result.
I did opt to add one tablespoon of sugar substitute to the batter only because traditional white bread has a little bit of sweetness and I wanted to mimic the flavor perfectly. This, of course, is totally optional.
Keep in mind that this keto coconut flour bread recipe uses a total of 8 eggs and therefore you’ll notice that when combining your eggs, butter and cream cheese that the mixture will not fully incorporate until you add your dry ingredients.
Once you add the coconut flour to the wet ingredients, the keto bread recipe comes together quickly.
Adding the ½ cup of sour cream to the batter at the end ensures that the bread is moist. It’s a little trick I discovered when using coconut flour in some of my other recipes.
Cheese Bread Keto With Coconut Flour And Egg
Another name for keto bread is keto egg loaf. Traditionally this recipe uses a large number of eggs and it’s therefore known for its eggy flavor.
That is NOT the case with this recipe for keto cream cheese bread. I believe that’s the case because the addition of cream cheese helps balance the egg flavor as well as the coconut flour.
I encourage you to read the comments at the end of the post where readers have confirmed that this bread does not have the pronounced egg flavor that is typical in a keto egg loaf.
Keto Bread Muffins
I thought I would bake my keto cream cheese bread in a well-greased muffin tin. But you can easily bake this recipe in a 10-inch loaf pan if what you wanting is a bread you can slice.
If you opt to make it in a loaf pan you will have to bake the keto coconut bread for up to 90 minutes in a 350-degree oven.
What’s nice about a recipe batter that uses coconut flour is that it makes a thick batter. This allowed me to overfill my tin pan just a tad allowing for a lovely muffin top to form as the bread baked.
Before placing the bread in the oven, I brushed the tops of the keto muffins with a simple egg wash and sprinkled them with sesame seeds.
By no means are the sesame seeds necessary. But what it did do is give me a license to continue to make other keto bread recipes with all sorts of yummy add-ins. So stay tuned for those.
If you’ve been secretly making a Keto Bread out of my pound cake recipe, do take a moment to leave a comment. I would love to hear all about it.

- Allow your eggs, cream cheese, butter to come to room temperature.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 12 cavity muffin pan generously with butter or a 10-inch loaf pan.
- In a medium-sized bowl combine your coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, sugar substitute, and set aside.
- In a large bowl using a hand mixer, handheld electric mixer or a standup mixer beat together the room temperature butter, cream cheese until light and fluffy. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl several times to make sure the mixture is well blended.
- To this butter and cream cheese mixture add the 8 eggs one at a time. Making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl several times. Note that due to a large number of eggs the mixture will not fully combine, this is normal. Once you add the dry ingredients to this wet mixture, the ingredients will come together perfectly.
- To the wet ingredients slowly add all the dry ingredients on a low mixing setting. Making sure to scrape the bowl a couple of times.
- Once the two mixtures are fully combined stop using the electric mixer and fold in the 1/2 cup of sour cream gently. Making sure the sour cream gets fully incorporated into the batter but be careful to not over mix. Note that the batter will be very thick and fluffy. This is the normal texture when using coconut flour exclusively in a recipe.
- Overfill the muffin pan just slightly. The thick batter will not cause the muffins to spread. Slightly overfilling your muffin tins will create a nice muffin top.
- With an additional whole egg and a tablespoon of water create an egg wash. Baste the top of each muffin with the egg wash and then sprinkle the sesame seeds on top of each muffin. This step is optional.
- Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes until lightly brown on the top and when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Refer to the notes section for instructions in baking into loaf pans.
Keto Cream Cheese Coconut Flour Loaf

If baking in two 8x5 inch loaf pans bake the loaves for 45-60 minutes.
