Plus, it will give you the added fiber you need while doing a keto diet. It’s a high fiber bread recipe that is low in carbs and keto-friendly. For a keto “white” bread option, check out our Keto cream cheese bread

I love to have this bread for breakfast but it’s a great option any time of day. Bread is one of the foods most people miss when doing a keto diet. I totally understand because this girl loved her bread too.

I especially loved the flavor and texture of whole wheat bread but of course, that had to change once I went keto. The solution would come when I decided to make my own recipe for low carb high fiber bread.

I decided to create a keto high fiber bread not only because I needed a good substitution but because there seems to be a lack of delicious high fiber low carb options for breakfast.

We often get asked if choosing to go low carb keto means that they will not be getting enough fiber in their diet.

The short answer is maybe, if you are eating plenty of green vegetables then fiber will not be an issue on a keto diet.

Remember the majority of the carbs you will consume on a low carb keto plan come from plenty of fresh green vegetables.

High Fiber Low Carb Bread Recipe

Keto's high fiber bread

Where the challenge lies is that most people are just not eating enough vegetables, and by the time they come to a low carb diet, they have spent a lifetime avoiding them.

Which means it will take a little time to embrace them. The other problem is that the few vegetables that they did consume prior to making the switch were usually those high in starches and carbohydrates.

This is where a recipe like my low carb high fiber breakfast bread, can address the need.

I created this low carb high fiber breakfast bread as an excellent way to add more fiber into your diet effortlessly.

If we need to find ways to add more fiber to our diet, why not make it a delicious one?

This recipe is full of nuts, seeds, and psyllium, all the ingredients that ensure you are getting enough of insoluble and soluble fiber.

What’s more, our low carb high fiber breakfast bread is giving you the benefits of important prebiotics.

Most people have heard of probiotics but are not too familiar with prebiotics. However, prebiotics also plays an important role in our diet.

When it comes to a prebiotic it can either be soluble or insoluble fiber. This fiber passes through the upper region of the gastrointestinal tract and both stimulates and grows the beneficial bacteria in the colon.

This is why a keto high fiber breakfast bread makes for the perfect breakfast meal. Not only is it delicious, but it will keep your gut bugs very happy.

This low in carbs, keto-friendly fiber bread slices and toasts beautifully. What’s more, it can easily be customized. Just add your favorite low carb seeds and nuts. And of course, it’s less than 3 net carbs!

So, what can we do if we want to stay regular on a low carb diet? Besides making sure you are drinking enough water and eating the right amount of green leafy vegetables, I would recommend a fiber supplement in the way of psyllium, while your body adjusts.

Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, meaning at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase. 

What you want is a psyllium powder that is plain and not loaded with sugars or other unnecessary fillers.

Once your body gets fully keto-adapted you will find that staying regular is no longer an issue.

Looking for delicious low carb high fiber options is a great way to ensure you are including enough fiber in your diet.

Soluble Fiber

When it comes to psyllium powder it contains mostly soluble fiber. When soluble fiber is digested it creates a gel-like consistency in our digestive track.

Why is this gel consistency a good thing? Because it helps with keeping hunger at bay. It keeps you feeling fuller longer.

A breakfast option like our low carb high fiber breakfast bread, not only gives you the necessary fiber while doing a low carb diet. It also gives you the added satiety you want when trying to lose or maintain your weight.

Soluble fiber has also proven to lower the bad cholesterol in our body and therefore reduce the risk of heart disease.

How To Make Keto High Fiber Bread

Knowing the importance of creating a low carb bread that is both delicious and high in fiber, I am going to share the steps in detail with you.

If you are wanting a dairy-free version of this keto high fiber bread, then simply swap out the butter for the same amount of coconut oil. 

You’ll be using a 9X5 baking pan that has been well greased. I used a glass one but I’ve also made it in a metal pan without issue.

Bake your bread in a preheated 350-degree oven. Your keto high fiber bread will take anywhere from 45- 60 minutes to bake depending on your oven. Check for doneness at the 45-minute mark. If an inserted toothpick comes out clean it’s ready.

Once your keto bread is baked allow to cool for 15 minutes and then run a butter knife around the edges to loosen it from the pan and then wait another 20 minutes or so before unmolding. 

Make sure you allow your bread to be fully cooled before slicing and storing in your refrigerator.

Does Fiber Count As A Carb?

Most people who do a low carb keto diet do not count fiber in their carb count.

BUT…why is this?

It’s because although most fiber is indeed a carbohydrate, fiber doesn’t cause a rise in blood sugar levels. So, the majority of people who adhere to this lifestyle opt not to count it.

However, I will caution you that this is not a green light to consume lots of processed low carb products. Reason being that the majority of those are loaded with artificial ingredients. Instead, stick to all natural products as much as possible. There are many great brands out there who make natural products that are low in carbs.

A great example is Perfect Keto’s Nut Butter (which now comes in single serving packets!) which we love to spread on our high fiber bread for a delicious keto breakfast that’s high in fiber and fat.

I sure hope you will give this recipe a try. Once you do, make sure you remember to tag us on Instagram and Facebook. It’s what keeps this girl encouraged to keep sharing and perfecting her recipes.

  1. Today I had the pleasure of enjoying this bread and I am sold! It is actually better than any bread I've ever had! Thanks Hilda for this treat !!
     
  2. This looks delicious! :)
     
  3. I made this today and both my husband and I love it! I had to make one substitution. I was out of flax seeds, so I decided to grind up some walnuts instead. It really worked well. I also threw in some poppy seeds.This recipe is Very Good! Thanks!
     
  4. I calculated total carbs in complete recipe at 52 - 53. Carbs without sesame seeds = 36. The sesame seeds are 10.3 net carbs in the 1/2 cup. You might reduce sesame seeds to 2 tablespoons (at 1.1 carb per tablespoon). If you reduce sesame seeds to 2 tablespoons, rather than 1/2 cup, the recipe would be 38 carbs total. Carb count for 10 slices would be 3.8 each. 12 slices would be 3.1 each.
     
    • Wow Glenda, you're the best??? can you tell me what you used to calculate? I need to start adding to all my recipes. Thanks for taking the time to do this for the readers ?
       
      • I wish I could tell you that I have one place to check carb counts, but I don't. I go several places until I find what I am looking for, however, not all are created equal. Several places had 1/2 cup sesame seeds at 17 net carbs, but then I found several others that had it at 10.3. I then found that not all sesame seeds are equal - the plain dried ones are lowest carb. The toasted and salted ones are higher. Most places I use will list carbs and fiber, but you have to calculate the net carbs from that. I wish I could find an app to do net carbs for me. I haven't found one yet, but I keep looking. Anyway, here are several places I used: http://carb-counter.org/ http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/carbcounter.shtml
         
      • Thanks lovely ? that's why I haven't posted the nutrition facts. I can't find one that makes it easy. ?
         
  5. Fantastic! Thank you!
     
  6. I really don't like the gritty texture of phsyllium husk powder. Is there a substitution I could use?
     
    • Hi Rose, I suppose you can just add more almond flour but it just won't be as high in fiber. My low carb "corn" bread may be a better recipe for you. ?
       
      • Can u make one more adjustment to the ingredients plz add optional to whatever I can remove as I need to lower the serving calories
         
      • Hi Rollan, not sure what you are hoping for. Can you give me more details as to what you would like to substitute and I can start from there. Otherwise, you could opt for smaller portions to reduce the overall calories and carbs.
         
  7. iamquiltpixie
    maybe I missed it, but couldn't find how many servings to a loaf of bread and what the nutritional facts are ... carbs per slice etc?
     
  8. This bread is perfection!! I reeeeaally like it. It's the best bread I've made yet. I used ground flax instead of psyllium husk. It was actually fun making this with all the seeds and nuts, Thanks for yet another awesome recipe!
     
  9. I have no almond flour. could I replace it with an extra 1/4 c. coconut flour? Maybe a little more milk or butter? Hate to use more than 6 eggs. Thank you. Otherwise I have made this about 4 times and it is amazing !!!
     
  10. Hi! Is there any way to calculate calories per slice and how much fiber per slice? Thanks.
     
  11. Peggy Kerbs
    I just made it for the first time. It turned out beautiful! It tasted so good! Thank you for sharing!
     
  12. If I made this and left out the sesame seeds, pecans, flax seeds, and coconut flakes would it still turn out ok?
     
  13. I absolutely HATE the taste of coconut. Can you taste it in this bread? There's so much going on I feel like it may be masked well, but I'm nervous to try. It looks so darn yummy though!
     
    • Hi Tanya, You really can't taste much of the coconut flour in this recipe because of all the added ingredients. But I would take out the shredded coconut. It won't affect the integrity of the bread. Enjoy!
       
  14. Can you use oat fiber instead of psyllium husks?
     
  15. I honestly can’t stand the taste of coconut flour, either, and each time I’m told it’s unnoticeable, it’s all I can taste! Is it possible to replace the coconut flour with additional almond flour, or do you have any ideas for additional substitutes? Your recipes are some of the best! Thanks for sharing!!
     
  16. Kay Daddona
    I'm a little new at looking up recipes like this one. However, I can't find the recipe. I was ready to start cooking a different recipe then came across your our luscious looking loaf!! Still rummaging through your blog? to find the recipe. Also, what is the "code" you gave us for? Thanks, Kay
     
  17. This looks amazing but I was wondering about the amount of sugar substitute. Seems like it would make the loaf quite sweet.
     
    • Hi Luci, You can certainly reduce the sweetener or leave it out completely if you prefer. My goal was for it to taste as close to the whole wheat bread we grew up on and a quick look at the label would show you that they too have sweeteners added.
       
  18. Hi Hilda,I’ve made a few of your recipes and have to say, you never disappoint. This bread is amazing. It came out perfect and since I didn’t have sesame seeds, I used slivered almonds and replaced the psyllium husk powder ( which I’m not a fan of) with flaxseed meal. It was perfect. Deeeeeelish.Thank you once again. <3Rose
     
  19. Hi Hilda I made the loaf and left out the sweetener and the coconut and added in pumpkin seeds. Tasted great though didn't rise as much as yours. Was quite dense so I'm wondering if I overworked it. So far it's the best keto bread I've tasted, so thank you for the recipe. We're metric in Australia so that might have made some difference too as our cup size it a little larger than yours. I'll make it again because I did like the flavour.
     
    • Hi Luci, Thanks for getting back to us. The bread is a little denser because of the fiber but perhaps the measurement it a little different. I hope in the future to be able to give my readers a metric option too but that may be a little while from now. Glad you enjoyed the flavor!
       
  20. Can this bread be made in a bread machine ?
     
  21. Hilda, this recipe looks great. How would I substitute maple syrup for sweetener?
     
  22. Could I leave out the shredded coconut?
     
  23. What sugar substitute do you use?
     
    • Hi Amanda, I used Lakanto Monk Fruit https://www.lakanto.com/collections/shop-products/products/lakanto-classic-sugar-free-sweetener-family-size-800g?aff=99 but any of your favorite sugar substitutes would work. Enjoy!
       
  24. This bread is awesome. So good for sandwiches and buttered. Great recipe. Thanks.
     
  25. Can I add sunflower and pumpkin seeds and will it add to the carbs.
     
  26. Yet another loaf I’ve made that despite following the recipe to the letter has resulted in a wet, heavy bread. Oh and it was purple which I believe is the psyllium husk. I’m about to give up EVER making bread again. HELP what am I doing wrong!?
     
    • Hi Alison, Not sure what could have gone wrong but the brand of psyllium husk matters. That's why I suggested the NOW brand because it doesn't cause the bread to turn purple. Here is my post on keto baking: https://www.fittoservegroup.com/favorite-low-carb-keto-baking-tips/ There is a learning curve when it comes to baking with alternative flours.
       
  27. How much will it add to the carbs to add some sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds
     
  28. Hilda, I've made this bread and it is absolutely delicious. It will be on my weekly menu.
     
  29. Diane taber
    Hi I’m really trying to to lose weight.and am missing things some times.not all the time but there is the odd accasion that I find I’m really missing hi fibre bread.some times.and wondered if you had any recipes please for this please.as I just love a keto friendly one to eat now and again please as that would be really great thank you bye.
     
  30. Psyllium husk where can i buy that?
     
  31. Made this bread with Maple Flavored Monkfruit Syrup as the sugar substitute, it was fabulous!! I would agree that 2 TB of maple syrup should be enough. But the addes amount was terrific💕
     
  32. Is this bread eggy at all?
     
  33. I love this bread! By far, the best Keto bread I have tried. I did substitute water for the coconut or almond milk, since I did not have any. Also used chopped walnuts instead of pecans. It is fantastic!
     
  34. Can this bread be made omitting the sugar substitute and not replacing it with anything?
     
  35. Margaret C
    My daughter is a vegan so could I substitute chia or flax egg for the eggs in recipe
     
    • Hi Margaret, I have not tried substituting the egg for a chia or flax egg so I can't really vouch for it. But it should work in theory. Let me know if you decide to try and if it worked well for you.
       
  36. Juanita Hazelton
    My husband is allergic to psyllium powder. What can I substitute for it?
     
  37. Suzanne Bustamantez
    I got 10 slices out of mine instead of 18 what size pan did you use I used a standard bread loaf pan. So if that's the case would that make my slices 3.96 net carbs each. I did 2.2 multiplied by 18 then divided it by 10.
     
  38. I was only able to get 20 slices out of it. What size pan did you use. I had a regular size bread loaf pan. Does that mean each slice would be close to 4 net carbs per slice. I multiplied your net carb count by 18 to get net carbs for whole recipe. Then I divided it by 10 and got 3.96 net carb does that sound right?
     
  39. This looks great. Is it filling? I have trouble with fiber and I wonder if this bloats you up? Especially the chia seeds for me. I wonder if I can leave them out. Also, could I use flax meal instead of flax seeds?
     
    • Hi Sara, feel free to leave out the seeds from this recipe. I didn't add chia seeds to this recipe though. I do not recommend you use flax meal instead of flax seeds just leave them out entirely. You will still have a high fiber bread with the omission of the seeds.Enjoy!
       
  40. I have not made it yet but my question is with all the coconut ingredients will it be a strong flavor?
     
    • Hi Jessie, Although this bread uses coconut flour and coconut flavor the bread does not have a pronounced coconut flavor. However, you can opt to leave the coconut flakes out of the recipe if you prefer.
       
  41. I used oat fiber instead of psyllium and found that I couldn’t toast it. The bread fell apart but was oh so tasty!!!!
     
    • Hi Midge, I have not used oat fiber but I do not think it behaves exactly like psyllium husk powder. Psyllium really helps with the structure of the recipe. Leaving it out would explain why the bread fell apart when you tried to toast it.
       
  42. Sheri Dugan
    love this bread! Didn't have pecans or flax seeds. Used chia and sesame seeds. Made savory, so no sweetner or flaked coconut. Will experiment with adding garlic powder and other savory seasonings. Also will make sweet, try adding cinnamon, pecans & coconut flakes. I easily got 14 slices. Thanks for this!
     
  43. This bread is FABULOUS!! It works well with Shred10 as well as Keto! Wonderful taste, dense, lots of tasty ingredients! I added 2T chia seed, 1/3c Oatmeal, and put Pumpkin Seeds on top to decorate it! Great recipe!
     
  44. I am definitely going to make this bread! I like how you respond to each comment. Thanks for this keto recipe.
