Low Carb Almond Bread
Low Carb Almond Bread
It is crazy how cheese can be made into something so bread-like!! Low Carb Almond Bread has a spongy texture and a chewy bread-like feel. It’s sturdy enough for your favourite sandwich and warms nicely in the toaster for your fried egg. This low carb, Keto-friendly bread also tastes great!!
You can use regular cream cheese, but I like to use flavoured for this recipe for something a little different. I like the garden vegetable for regular sandwiches and the herb and garlic for bread to serve with soup or stew. This great recipe is also super quick, being ready in about half an hour. Serve slightly warm right out of the pan, room temperature or lightly toasted in the toaster. You can use Low Carb Almond Bread for sandwiches, croutons, as a dipping bread, or a base for fried eggs and tuna melts. It’s a great way to keep your Keto diet on track with only 2.4 net carbs per slice. Enjoy!

- 1 cup almond flour/meal
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 8 ounces cream cheese, preferrably flavoured
- 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
- 3 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly spray a 10"x15" baking tray with non-stick spray and line with parchment if desired.
- Stir together almond flour and baking powder.
- To a large bowl add the cream cheese and mozzarella. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and return to microwave for another minute. Stir until smoothed out. Add eggs one at a time whisking with a fork to incorporate each fully. Stir in parmesan cheese and dry ingredients. Spread evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 17-20 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool cut into 12 squares.
-I like to use garden vegetable or herb and garlic cream cheese. They add a nice twist to the taste.
-The cut squares will last up to a month in the freezer in an airtight container or Ziplock bag.
-Room temperature squares can be warmed in the toaster.
-This bread holds up well when used for sandwiches, but also great topped with a fried egg or as a tuna melt.
