Almond Keto Bread 

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

That’s right. I said BREAD.

This is a familiar recipe that I have seen floating around the interwebs.

A very simple one pan bread recipe which you can microwave or bake in the oven. I have only used the microwave, but I will include basic oven baking instructions.

So let’s get to it, shall we!

Wait! What is Ketosis? 

Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons Almond Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

The how to’s: 

  1. If using a microwave, use a microwave safe dish.
  2. If using the oven, preheat to 350 degrees and use an oven safe dish.
  3. Put the almond flour, baking powder, and salt in the dish. Mix to blend.
  4. Add the eggs and melted coconut oil. Mix completely.
  5. Microwave: place uncovered in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds on high.
  6. Oven: bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15-20 minutes. (I have a convection oven the time will vary for each oven so check every few minutes after the 12 minute mark)
  7. Remove from the pan and slice horizontal to spilt the “loaf” like an English muffin. Then cut in half.
  8. Toast in a skillet with butter on both sides to crisp the “bread.”

Look at that gorgeous loaf of bread!

If you don’t have time to toast the bread in a pan, use a toaster!

Look at that!! You can make Cinnamon Toast with this bread by simply adding a granulated Keto approved sweetener such as Swerve or Truvia and a few sprinkles of cinnamon! ~You’re Welcome!

Beautiful Golden Brown!

Toast these in a skillet or refrigerate and toast in a toaster oven as needed. 


Make these ahead for the week to have a quick “sandwich bread” ready for those days when you need something quick, full of fat, and easy to eat on the go!

The School year is coming up…use these for your #ketokid school lunch!

Use this simple and quick keto bread as a breakfast toast or make a grilled cheese if you tolerate dairy! How awesome is that!!! You can be keto and have a grilled cheese sandwich…with wine!

Now tell me how how it is to cut the crappy carbage out of your life!

Now that looks like roughing it in the wild doesn’t it?!

We bought a travel trailer and hit the road! 


Just for a few days.

But it’s fun to dream of hauling our Flagstaff Classic Super Lite and hitting the open road and dropping our hitch wherever and whenever the urge strikes.

For now, the frequent weekends and maybe even weekdays of hooking up and rolling off to some remote location are what we’ll take…for now.

We still have a little adulting to do before we grow into Full-timers!

I was ecstatic to get this Travel Trailer!

My greatest memories from my childhood are of camping with parents!

My Dad, who passed in 2009 and my Mom, who’s still kicking life in the teeth, were amazing and hard working people who took time off on the weekends to experience life with me.  I was never bored or tired or hot or cold when we were at the lake or some other kind of campground.

The greatest thing about these trips besides the fishing, swimming, cliff jumping (at Lake Whitney, Texas) water skiing, tubing, firefly catching, bike riding, squirrel feeding, hammock napping, and nature walking, were the meals my Mom would make on a little slide-in truck bed camper kitchen.

How she could go in that little camper and come out with the food she did was absolutely amazing, even though I didn’t realize it was amazing at the time.

For me it was normal. It was MY normal. She has always made it look easy. I hope that I inherited that from her. A learned behavior or genetic…either way, I will take it! She had and still has skills!

Ingredients: 

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp raw local honey (to keep this strictly Ketogenic use granulated Swerve)
  • 4 tbsp organic unsweetened peanut butter or other nut butter
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts 
  • 2 handfuls of dark chocolate chips of choice (Choose a brand like Lily’s to keep it Keto or chop up some 90%-100% dark chocolate bar) 

Preheat oven to **325 degrees for a camper stove 350 for home stove.

**Camper stoves run a bit hot on the bottom. Dropping the baking temperature down by 25 degrees helps keep the bottom from burning.

The how to’s:

  1. In an 8 inch cast iron skillet, add all the dry ingredients and mix with a fork or whisk. 
  2. Add the eggs, vanilla, honey, nut butter and coconut oil and mix well. 
  3. Add the walnuts and chocolate chips. Blend. 
  4. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Don’t over-bake! Take it out of the oven when the center is just setting. It will keep baking in the cast iron skillet when you remove it from the oven. 

Serve this with a creamy scoop of Halo Top ice cream or make your own if you plan ahead! This was an impromptu camping trip for us so I opted to just purchase the Halo Top. The first night we had Mint chocolate chip and the second night I found S’mores Halo Top at the local Brookshire’s grocery store!!! Now that tastes like camping! 


The camper smells so good!!!

Someone sure is enjoying the camping life!

Luke the Goldendoodle took one of the chairs as his own. He definitely has no idea that he’s a dog.

We were rolling along just fine and then…

The Maiden Voyage blow out!!! Ewww, that’s a gnarly looking tire!

Cue the Sad face picture!


Funny thing…the spare that came with our trailer wasn’t the right one!

We had a screw in our tire…at least we know why it blew!

That’s where this guy Dan came into the picture! We called our road side assistance and a couple of hours later we were on the road again. Thanks Dan!!! Look up Dan’s Tire Service if you’re ever in the area of Stephenville, Texas! 325-646-8595


Then it was off to play a game of Taboo. Luke makes a pretty good partner. He can’t read or talk. But those eyes say it all don’t they!


Now back to why you’re here. That cookie pie! Mmmmmmm!
