KETO BROWN BREAD

KETO BROWN BREAD

A delicious brown bread that can be used for sandwiches, toasting or even by itself!!

Now, you may notice, this recipe is incredibly similar to my ‘white bread’ recipe. In fact, it’s nearly identical, but the one difference is that this bread has yeast in it. I know, I know, it’s not typical ‘multigrain’ or anything but with the addition of yeast, it creates a taste similar to brown bread, while if we leave it out, the taste is more white bread. So that is how I am naming them. 

I always say this, so I will say it again. When using yeast, it needs sugar to rise. You can use inulin, which is keto (but also $$$) but I used sugar because it is cheaper. AGAIN – the carbs from the sugar DO NOT COUNT. The sugar is eaten by the yeast to make carbon dioxide, hence how it rises. It should not affect your blood sugar levels.

Let’s quickly talk about protein. In normal wheat bread, gluten is the protein, so when we take it out, we need some protein to replace it. The best way – protein powder. I use whey because it’s incredibly versatile, but I get so many comments saying how whey will spike insulin and that too much protein will kick you out of ketosis. 

While both are true, there are many variables and the amount of whey protein per serving (slice of bread) is around 12g.. less than a chicken breast. Each person is different, but to kick yourself out of ketosis with protein, you’d have to eat more than half the bread and definitely MORE than your macros suggest.

Now, again, whey does spike insulin, which could be concerning to those with diabetes or insulin resistance, but let’s keep in mind that whey comes from milk and is also in cheese, sour cream and yogurt. Something most consume on keto. 

If you don’t want to use whey – you could try casein, pea or another type of vegan protein powder. However I have NOT tried it with anything other than soy (and it did not work!). So keep that in mind. Someone did try the bagels with egg protein powder and they said it was delicious. 

Ok I will stop talking now! 

What you will need:

2.5 cups (250g) almond flour
2 cups (140g/4.5 scoops) protein isolate (I used whey)
1 tbsp xanthan gum
1 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar (or inulin)
salt
1.25 cup (300ml) warm water

In a mixing bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients, including the instant yeast.

Slowly pour in the warm water and whisk until incorporated. You should have a thick cake batter type consistency.

Pour the batter into a 9×5 loaf pan that is greased or lined with parchment paper.

Cover and let rise in a warm area for 45 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.

Spritz a little water on top of the dough so it is moist (the top will have dried out during the rise)

Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190°C for 20-25 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

** keep an eye on while baking, if it starts browning too early, cover with foil.

This makes roughly 16 slices.
