How to Make Keto Almond Flour Bread

I love how straightforward this recipe is. With a basic almond flour and sour cream bread recipe like this, you’ll not need to crave bread while on a keto diet.

What’s more, it’s a keto bread that doesn’t have an eggy taste.

You can bake this in a loaf pan for slices, make hamburger buns, or even in a muffin tin for individual rolls.

I opted to add one tablespoon of sugar substitute to the batter. This, however, is totally optional.

But keep in mind that traditional white bread has a little bit of sweetness, and I wanted to mimic the flavor perfectly. I used a granulated monk fruit sugar substitute for this, but you can use whichever you prefer.

To make this low-carb sour cream bread, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, measure and sift almond flour and combine it with baking powder, sugar substitute, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.

Grease an 8-inch loaf pan with butter and line it with parchment paper.

In a separate bowl, use an electric beater to mix softened butter and sour cream until light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs one at a time, being careful not to overmix.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while mixing at a low setting.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake on the center rack for 30–40 minutes until golden brown.

Once baked, allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a baking rack to cool completely for about 20 minutes.

You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze them for up to 3 weeks.

What Does Sour Cream Do In Baking?

In traditional baking, sour cream makes baked goods moister; this is no different from keto baking.

The creamy texture of sour cream when making a quick bread that uses keto-friendly flour also helps the bread to be a little fluffier.

Baking with sour cream moistens the crumb of this bread and adds the perfect amount of tanginess. It’s a trick I learned years ago when I would bake traditionally and have now employed in my low-carb baking.

That being said, you could substitute the sour cream in this keto bread recipe for Greek full-fat yogurt if that is your preference.
