Recipe: Keto Rustic Bread
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
- 1/4 cup psyllium husk powder
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- Optional: sesame seeds, chia seeds, or flaxseeds for topping
Preparing the Dough:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a standard-sized loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, ground flaxseed meal, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix these dry ingredients thoroughly.
- In another bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten. Add the olive oil, warm water, and apple cider vinegar to the eggs, and whisk until combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir well to form a dough. The dough should be thick and sticky.
Shaping and Baking:
- Transfer the dough into the prepared loaf pan. Use a spatula or wet hands to smooth the top of the dough.
- If desired, sprinkle sesame seeds, chia seeds, or flaxseeds on top of the loaf.
- Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until it’s firm to the touch and golden brown on the outside.
Cooling and Serving:
- Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 15-20 minutes.
- After it has cooled slightly, transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the bread is completely cool, slice it into thin or thick slices, depending on your preference.
