If you’ve been monitoring your carbs and missing bread, my recipe for keto cream cheese bread is about to change that once and for all.
This recipe produces a great tasting low carb bread that is airy, light and best of all it’s made with easy to come by ingredients.
Since this keto cream cheese bread uses coconut flour, 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.
I already have several keto bread recipes on the site that people are using on a regular basis. A couple of popular ones right now are both my Keto Cornbread Recipe made with almond flour and my Keto Coconut Flour Cornbread.

Keto-Friendly Bread Substitute
A ketogenic diet has the potential to really improve your health, that is if you can stick with it long enough.
Randy and I made great strides in our health when we both dove into this lifestyle but that’s not to say it’s always been easy to stick with it.
The fact that we combine the ketogenic diet with our Christian Faith is what we attribute our longterm dedication.
Whenever I’ve questioned people who’ve abandoned the keto diet before it had a chance to make a difference in their lives, all too often I hear the words ” I missed bread too much”
Over and over people tell me they could pass up the sweets, but what they can’t seem to be able to live without is bread.
You Don’t Have To Miss Bread While Doing Keto
Trust me when I tell you that I understand their pain. Because in the early years of doing keto, I too missed bread. Especially since this girl used to make homemade bread all the time.
However, as I approach year five of doing keto, bread just doesn’t tempt me the way it once did.
I say all that to say, it’s worth staying the course because the benefits of a ketogenic diet go far beyond the bathroom scale.
Creating keto-friendly bread substitutes like this easy keto cream cheese bread is my way of giving back to the community. It’s the very reason I started sharing my recipes, to begin with.
So if you’ve been on the quest to finding a keto-friendly bread substitute, today is your day.
The Origins Of Keto Cream Cheese Bread
I am excited to share a little backstory as to how this keto 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.
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.
Once again I want to thank Kate and Tracy for bringing this fabulous idea to my attention. It’s readers like them that keep me motivated to keep creating.

If you are wanting to do a keto diet effectively, don’t forget to test your ketone levels.
Although ketone strips work well initially, the Gold standard is the blood ketone test. This test is taken just like the glucose test that diabetics use to track their sugar levels.
After 10 seconds the ketone meter will give you an accurate reading.
Testing is not necessary in order to do a ketogenic diet, but it can serve as a powerful tool to track your ketone levels and help you see your ketosis progress.

- Allow your eggs, cream cheese, butter to come to room temperature.
- Pre-heat 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 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 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 the 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 mixture and fold in the 1/2 cup of sour cream gently. Making sure the sour cream gets fully incorporated into the batter but being 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 one 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.
- If you are baking your keto cream cheese bread in a 10 inch loaf, bake the bread for up to 90 minutes. Check your bread at 60 minutes for doneness and allow to cook longer if necessary.
