Oopsie Bread, A Great Low Carb Option

oopsie bread

Oopsie bread what kind of name is that anyway? Well, these low carb bread substitutes got their name because they were first made by mistake.

Don’t you just love it when an oops becomes a game-changer and is better than what you were first going for?

The original recipe is from Dr. Akins called Diet Revolution Rolls. Legend has it, that a low carb mistook the original recipe’s cottage cheese for cream cheese.

Today, you can’t go far in the low carb community and not find a version of the oopsie bread.

Make sure you remember to also check out our Keto Cream Cheese Recipes for other delicious recipes that feature cream cheese.

Oopsie Bread – Credit Where Credit Is Due

I tried to find out who created this fabulous mistake to give them proper attribution because I know how discouraging it is to create a recipe only to see it elsewhere without any credit to the originator.

That’s what happened to me with my Low Carb Keto Cream Cheese Pound Cake.  It’s so unfair but it seems to be the case all too frequently.

Unfortunately, I finally had to give up after searching for what seemed like forever. If anyone knows who to give the proper credit to, please let me know. I would be thrilled to tag them in this post.

What I did, however, find while searching is how many people have adapted this recipe to fit their own personal preferences.

Customize Your Oopsie Bread

You can really have fun tweaking Oopsie Bread Recipe. I saw many people substitute the cream cheese for sour cream, and many more just add their favorite herbs and spices.

Basically, all you need to remember is to keep the egg to cream cheese or sour cream ratio them the same.

Well, if so many were already customizing the oopsie bread, you know I had to do the same. In order to keep things super easy to create and to have enough for leftovers, I made a bigger batch than most versions out there.

I used an entire 8-ounce package of cream cheese and added coconut flour to mine. The addition of coconut flour makes for a better bread-like texture in my book. I also chose to bake mine at 350 degrees instead of the original 300.

I encourage you to enjoy experimenting in your low carb keto kitchen. Whatever you do, don’t make missing bread a reason to not go low carb.

  4. I have used a different variation of oopsie bread in the past, but look forward to this alternative…. When I have made oopsie bread, I found it to be a little “eggy” tasting, but I was making a BLT and decided to try grilling on both sides in butter (almost like a grilled cheese sandwich) and it came out great 🙂
