Any other avocado toast fans out there?

This loaf is my favorite way to enjoy avocado toast — I like to toast the slices and then spread with avocado mixed with a little lemon juice, salt and pepper — not only is this a far healthier and filling way than spreading avocado on bread, it’s also far tastier as this loaf is delicious on its own.

To lower the carb content, you can use zucchini only as the vegetable content (though it’s tastier with all three vegetables). You can also change up the seeds with nuts if you prefer, and add in some dried herbs to change the flavour profile.

This loaf freezes really well, which makes it a great make-ahead meal option. Simply take a slice out of the freezer and pop it in the toaster for a quick and easy breakfast or snack.

Ingredients (makes 12 slices)

  • 1 cup almond flour (100 g/ 3.5 oz)
  • 1/2 cup mixed seeds (65 g/ 2.3 oz) (I used pumpkin, flax seeds, sunflower, sesame)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour (40 g/ 1.4 oz)
  • 2 tbsp psyllium husks (8 g/ 0.3 oz)
  • 1 large grated zucchini (320 g/ 11.3 oz)
  • 1 small grated carrot (50 g/ 1.8 oz)
  • 1 cup grated pumpkin (115 g/ 4.1 oz)
  • 4 extra large eggs or 5 medium eggs
  • 1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp pink Himalayan salt, or to taste
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds, to garnish


  1. Heat oven to 170 °C/ 340 °F (conventional), or 150 °C/ 300 °F (fan assisted). Combine the dry ingredients (almond meal, spices, salt, coconut flour and psyllium, and seeds and baking powder) in a bowl.
    Note: If you are worried about moisture issues (which depends on the vegetables), increase the temperature to 180 °C/ 355 °F (conventional), or 160 °C/ 320 °F (fan assisted). Savory Keto Veggie Loaf
  2. Grate veggies and stir through ghee and eggs in a separate bowl, then add dry mix to veggie mix and stir to combine. The mixture will be fairly dry.

Great yummy recipe

This is a wonderfully easy and forgiving recipe and an amazing loaf for breakfast (if you're a savoury kind of person like me). I have played around with different Veg or just gone for 1 veg, added feta or olives. I love how easy it is to make and keeps me full for a long time! Thank you for collaborating. Would love to see more loaves 😉

Thank you for this great recipe. I just started on keto, but like to prepare delicious food. I made this today, forgot the pumpkin, added some celery and it turned out so delicious. Luckily I made double as I am freezing the rest.

Thank you for your lovely feedback, glad you enjoyed!

Hi, what can I use instead of pumpkin? Can I use more zucchini and carrots instead?
Thanks in advance 😊

Hi Rose, more zucchini and carrots will be great!

It tastes very good, but mine was too moist even if I cooked it for 65 min fan assisted. I hope oven temperature should be better at 160 /170° fan assisted and not 150. This is my experience!

Thank you Martina, let me double check and add a note. Could it be that there was more moisture in the veggies you used?

I don't have extra large eggs. Just large ones. Can I add an additional large egg to make up the difference? or maybe some water/chia seeds?

Hi Shelli, I added an option for medium eggs - you can use 5 medium eggs instead or 4 extra large. I hope this helps!

one of my staples!I occasionally change the spice around,but it has never failed yet!Thanks for the many recipies!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed!

This was excellent. Such a brilliant idea!  It is like a vegetarian meatloaf.  We ate it for dinner with avocado smeared on top and a green salad.  Very filling.  Look forward to having the leftovers tomorrow.  Next time I will use a bit less cumin as it was a little strong for my family’s tastes, although still delicious 😀

Thank you Krissie!

Is there a nut free option that anyone has tried for this recipe?

You could replace the almond flour with ground sunflower seeds (same amount) - that is what I generally use.

Is one slice, one serving?

Yes that's correct. One slice = 1 serving.

I have never used grated pumpkin.  It's March in MA to boot.
What kind of pumpkin?  Sounds like a lot of work???
Please advise

Hi Jeanne, it's ok to use just zucchini if you can't find pumpkin. I like Hokkaido and delicata squash. Also butternut squash is nice but has more carbs that the other two.

Can I use Butternut squash instead of pumpkin we can only get pumpkin in Oct &Nov thank you

Absolutely! The only difference is that you'll get 4.1 g net carbs per slice (not a big increase) 😊

This looks so delicious.  My husband does not like anything coconut!  I want to bake it for both of us. Could I juse extra almond flour instead?  Thank you.

Absolutely! You can use 1 more cup of almond flour (less absorbent than coconut flour so you need more) or 1/2 to 3/4 cup of flax meal. I hope this helps! 😊

Can’t wait to try   I only have psyllium husk powder. Will that work?  Thanks

Hi Janet, you can use psyllium powder instead (just 1 tablespoon will be enough).

Hi Martina, looks amazing. One question however, could I use psylium flower in stead of the whole husks and how much should I use then ? Thank you.

Thank you Ann! You can use psyllium powder instead (just 1 tablespoon will be enough).

Thank you Martina for the recipe and for your answer ! 😊

This looks lovely. However I cannot have psyllium.  Any substitutes?
Xanthan maybe? and if so how much?

Hi Leslie, flax meal would be the best alternative. Because it's less absorbent, I'd use 4 tablespoons. I hope this helps!
