Quick Keto Bread – For all those loving bread but should avoid it

It’s been a while since I wrote anything, but I’ll keep all good excuses for some other post. This one will be about a greatest discovery of the past month. 🙂 At least I think it’s great.

A month and so ago, I went to see the doctor, nothing serious, just to get antibiotics for tonsillitis that struck at the very bad time. We were done already, I was dressing up and saying “Thank you and good bye.”, but instead of saying that, I pointed how blurry my vision is when I read that eye sight checking poster. One thing led to another, he measured my blood pressure, took my bloods and next day I was put on strict low carbs diet. Well… I was not put on it – it was suggested, so I decided to listen to the doctor. He also suggested intermittent fasting, something that I am aware of, but I know myself – I have to eat or my acid gets very high, I get extremely hungry, feeling dizzy, will faint, can’t work…

Long story short – explanation was – it’s all because of too much bad carbs. And truth be told – I was eating loads of junk and somewhat less junky stuff lately (healthy protein bars, healthy fruit bars, healthy [put any marketing junk here] bars), and a bunch of chocolate loaded with sugar. It’s not something that I do often, but…. it happens. 🙂

Now, when Dina was pregnant with Max, she was on insulin and was not allowed to eat anything sweet, but for some reason I never googled anything using term – “low carbs. On day 4 of my diet, I googled “low carb recipes” and somewhere in the wild corners of the internet, a “Quick 90 seconds keto bread” popped up. I clicked on it, I’ve red the recipe, I was highly sceptic and was expecting a massive failure – but …The love was born. 🙂

And that’s why you are reading this.

I’s not that I need bread I just need something to put various healthy spreads on it. This is not really a bread, and it’s consistency is more like a savory cake, but – it is quick, easy and awesome.

And it goes like this:

– 1 egg in a mug
– pinch of salt
– 1 spoon of oil (coconut, olive, anything you like)
– 1 spoon of milk
– 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
– almond flour

Mix all that with a fork, and add almonds slowly until you get nice and somewhat thick batter. Hit the counter with the mug lightly a few times just to release any air bubbles out (if you care about it), and put the mug into the microwave for 90 seconds on high power (900w in my case).

Take it out, turn the mug upside down on the cutting board – and voila! Your bread is here.

As said, it’s not really a bread, but if you want to make it “even better”, slice it and toast it – and it feels much closer to toasted bread.

I liked it so much, that I started making it every other day, and, as written in the original recipe – you can add different spices and/or cheese into it, so this is my personal favorite:

– 2 eggs (into a big beer mug, size of 1 pint)
– pinch of salt
– 1 spoon of oil
– 1 spoon of milk
– 1/2 – 1 spoon of baking powder
– oregano (as much as you like)
– dill (to your liking)
– thyme (to your liking)
– paprika powder
– smoked paprika powder
– garlic granules (Which I should not eat for different reasons, but…)
– 1 spoon of soft cheese (cream cheese)
– 1 – 2 spoons of grated cheese
– 3/4 almond flour
– 1/4 coconut flour

Mix it all well again, make a thick batter (as on the photo) and put it into the microwave for 3 minutes and 30 seconds on high power (900w in my case).

I didn’t grill this one on the photos today, as I needed it to stay ready to soak the fat from the grilled sausages, but it’s absolute winner.

It’s so good, that when Dina tried it, she said – I was pregnant, I was on diet for 9 months, and you found nothing. You are on diet for 4 days, and you already have this which beats all my attempts to eat something bread-like? Nice. 🙂

There – If you like almonds, have no allergies, and have no vegan dilemmas around eggs and cheese – do yourself a favor and try this. Absolutely brilliant.

And yeah, for the purpose of this Blog, I’ve intentionally made more and left three slices for 24 hours to see if it’s equally good next day. It was covered with another plate – ate them next evening – fresh and good as when they were baked a day before!

So good, that it caused a blog post after a while. 🙂
Till the next one – stay safe and negative (covid-19).
