This a great keto bread recipe for busy days when you don't feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. It's incredibly fluffy, low in carbs and high in protein. It's the perfect vessel for just about any topping you can think of.

This white bread recipe is adapted from my 90 Second Keto Bread. I wanted to create a lower calorie, lower fat and higher protein version similar to Maria Emmerich's popular Protein Sparing Bread but with additional nut flour for texture.

How to Make Quick White Keto Bread

All you need to make this easy grain-free bread is almond flour, psyllium powder, protein powder, cream of tartar, salt and egg whites.

You'll need to beat the egg whites with cream of tartar (or apple cider vinegar). This will stabilize the egg whites and keep them fluffy. Then you'll slowly beat in the remaining ingredients until well combined

You'll then transfer the mixture in a square microwave-friendly container (or beat directly in it like I did), and cook in the microwave until fully set. This should take about just 90 seconds.

I tested four recipes before I ended up with the version I wanted. The third was almost perfect but needed some more tweaks. Here's what I learnt:

  • Don't use whole eggs. You want light and fluffy texture. Whole eggs are also more likely to make the bread taste eggy.
  • Don't use just protein powder but instead combine it with nut or seed flours. It may be down to the fact that this is a microwave recipe and too much protein powder makes it dense and very spongy. My first two attempts failed because I used too much protein powder (3 tbsp instead of 1 tbsp). After a few hours they were hard as cardboard and the taste wasn't good either.
  • Wondering which protein powder to use? Unflavored, plain egg white protein powder, powdered egg whites or whey protein powder will all work well in this recipe. I tried them all.

Recipe Tips

Nut-Free Quick Keto Bread

If you need to make this keto bread nut-free, replace the almond flour with the same amount (1/4 cup) of ground sunflower seeds. The bread won't be white but it will be just as fluffy.

I haven't tried using coconut flour but if you do, start with 1 1/2 tbsp coconut flour. Coconut flour is dense so the egg whites will be more deflated and the bread won't be as fluffy as the one made with almond flour.

Do I Have to Use Protein Powder and Psyllium?

I tried the exact same recipe but without protein powder and also without psyllium. It was good when toasted but otherwise it didn't rise as much and was too moist. Instead of skipping these ingredients, use some of the alternatives below but keep in mind they won't produce the same results.

If you want to avoid protein powder, you will need to add about 2 tablespoons of almond flour, or 1 1/2 teaspoons of coconut flour.

If you want to avoid using psyllium powder, you can either add 2 tablespoons of almond flour or 1 teaspoon of flax meal or 1 teaspoon of ground chia seeds.

No Microwave?

You can make this in the oven too! While I haven't tested this myself, I'll give you some general tips based on my experience with similar recipes.

If you don't have a microwave, pour in a small ovenproof baking dish lined with parchment paper and bake at 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional) until fully set and lightly browned on top. Depending on the size of the container, this should take 15-20 minutes. The smaller the container, the longer it will take to bake through as the bread will be thicker. If you use the oven, it's better to double or triple the recipe.

What To Do with Leftover Egg Yolks

Use any leftover egg yolks to make some Low-Carb Lemon Curd, Creamy Keto Vanilla Ice Cream or our Super Creamy Keto Vanilla Popsicles. You can even use the egg yolks to make some Creamy Keto Coffee for breakfast.

How to Use Keto White Bread

You can use this easy Low-carb 90 Second Bread to make Keto French Toast, Keto Grilled Cheese Sandwich or even this Keto Bread Pudding.

I topped mine with a generous layer of creamy mascarpone cheese and some of my Chunky Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam. Sweet or savory, the options are endless!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

For such a simple recipe and a rather innocuous-looking bread, this is absolutely genius!! I often have a couple of egg whites left over after making keto ice cream or custard and this is the perfect way to use them up. The recipe makes two generous slices and after toasting it's delicious as a base for a thick slathering of butter, marmite, duck rillettes, pate, pesto, anything really! It would almost make a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich bread, although I haven't tried that yet. Thank you so much for another fabulous recipe, Martina, everyone should try this!

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Anu!

What can we use if we don't have the egg powder? Any simple, common replacement?
Thank you!

The recipe won't be the same unless you use one of the three listed options (egg white protein powder, powdered egg whites or whey protein powder) but you could add a teaspoon more psyllium or 2-3 tsp flax meal.

I see you mixed in the same container you cook in, does that mean it wasn't greased?

That's correct, greasing wasn't necessary. A small amount may stick but the batter will shrink and detach from it as it cooks.

Hi!  Mine came out it possible that i cooked it too long?  I'm new to the keto bread thing, but the only substitution I made was 1 T. almond flour for the psyillium powder.  Thanks!

Hi Cara, I think it's more likely the cooking time/power rather than the substitution. I made this without the psyllium and it was still soft and fluffy, maybe a little more moist. It could also be the size of the cooking bowl as it will take less to cook if it'a bigger (the batter will spread out thinner). Try cooking it in 30 second intervals instead the full 90 seconds. You may need just 60 seconds.

Do you think this would cook appropriately on a griddle or fry pan? Thank you for the recipe, I plan on making this one in the morning!

I think this may cook well or a regular (not griddle) pan. I'd either use a non stick our a well seasoned cast iron skillet, both lightly greased. I hope that works! 😊

Definitely better than the recipe you got inspiration from (without any lack of respect for Maria, of course... but this one is far way better both for texture and flavour, neutral to be adapted to sweet/savory dishes, but with a less "anonimous"and fake feeling in the mouth): great improvement, thanks Martina 😊

Thank you so much Roberta! I think Maria's bread is great for those who really need to keep their carbs as low as possible (therapeutic uses) and those doing carnivore. This on the other hand is a bread with more authentic texture if you don't mind the few extra carbs 😊

What are the dimensions of your baking dish?

I used a glass container where the base is about 10 cm (4 inches) and goes slightly wider on top.

Martina, can I use something other than 1 tsp psyllium powder?  I don't react well to it.

You could add 1-2 tbsp more almond flour. I made 4 versions and version 3 wasn't actually that bad but it was a bit too moist. In that bread I used 2 egg whites (beaten until fluffy with cream of tartar and a pinch of salt) and added 1/4 cup of fine almond flour (ideally sifted to avoid clumps). I skipped both psyllium and protein powder so it's not 100% comparable. The bread was great when toasted but without toasting it was a bit too wet. I think adding 1-2 tablespoons of almond flour and skipping the psyllium will make a good bread. (Recipe tips updated)

Thank you so much for the suggestions!
