Bread is often considered one of the harder things to give up on the keto diet. (Usually mentioned along with pasta and desserts.) Full of carbohydrates, it’s hard to imagine incorporating bread into a low-carb diet—but keto bread recipes exist. Do they actually help conquer carb cravings?
Regular bread may be a no-no on a ketogenic diet, but some small changes can create a loaf that tastes delicious and stays within your macros. These keto bread recipes capture the same spongy, chewy and toasty texture as ordinary loaves, all while keeping you more full and focused.
Keto bread ingredients to watch out for
When researching keto bread recipes, keep in mind that not all low-carb ingredients play well with everyone’s digestion. For some, yeast, wheat and dairy can all cause stomach upset or bloating, as can artificial sweeteners. There’s a difference between natural erythritol and sucralose.
Psyllium husk, xanthan gum, cream of tartar and nuts or even nut butters can also cause issues. Be aware of nutrition facts, and note serving sizes when purchasing store-bought keto bread.
That said, you know your body best, and we always recommend listening to what your body is telling you. Starting a new way of eating can be a difficult adjustment for your lifestyle and biology, so don’t feel discouraged if it takes some time to enjoy all of the benefits and feel your best.
