EGG FREE KETO “SOURDOUGH”

EGG FREE KETO “SOURDOUGH”

I wanted to create a grain free bread that does not contain egg because some of my readers have allergies. This bread uses yeast, which makes it fluffy and gives a good rise. The whey protein powder and the xanthan help with texture and a stronger crumb structure. I think it tastes a bit like white sourdough!

I N G R E D I E N T S
1 1/2 cup / 150g almond flour
8 tbsp / 40g whey protein
powder (unflavoured)
2 tsp active dry yeast
2 tsp inulin (or sugar / honey)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup / 160 ml warm water

P R O T I P
Make sure the water is warm to
touch so the yeast can thrive.

Too cold and it can’t activate and
water that’s too hot will kill it.

Proof the yeast by adding it to the warm water (105F / 40C) together with the inulin or sugar.

Cover with a tea towel and put in a warm place (I put mine on top of a radiator) for 7-10 minutes. Wait for bubbles to form!
Stir together the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Once the yeast has produced bubbles, add the yeast water to the dry ingredients. Mix with a spatula or a for until a sticky dough forms.
Put into a 20 x 10 cm casserole dish lined with parchment paper. Cover and place back into your warm place for circa 45 – 60 minutes for the dough to rise.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F and bake for around 25-30 minutes. IMPORTANT – Check after 10 minutes and if the top is sufficiently browned, cover loosely with aluminium paper for the remainder of the
time.
Let cool completely before you remove the bread from the container. It’s very soft and fragile while hot and will firm up as it cools.

Keto FARMER’S BREAD

Keto FARMER’S BREAD

This bread is dense and rustic, so be sure to slice it thinly. It is wonderful with anything savoury, from mashed avocado to a grown-up cheese like Gruyere. I love that it is egg free.

I N G R E D I E N T S

2 cup / 200g almond flour

1 ½ cup / 200g sunflower seeds

½ cup / 50g pecan halves

½ cup / 80g chia seeds

2 tbsp psyllium husk powder

2 tsp baking powder

1 ¼ cup / 300 ml warm water

tbsp / 30g coconut oil, melted 1 tsp salt

P R O T I P

Toasting takes this bread to the next level! I love to freeze the entire loaf sliced and then toast straight from frozen.

D I R E C T I O N S

Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F.

  • Pulse the sunflower seeds and pecan nuts in a food processor until you have a mix of medium and small pieces (we want a little crunch in the bread).
  • Add to a bowl with the almond flour, chia seeds, psyllium husk powder and baking powder and stir until combined.
  • Add the warm water and coconut oil and knead until you have a smooth dough. Let the mix rest for 10 minutes.
  • Form a bread loaf and bake for around 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Keto COCONUT FLOUR BREAD

Keto COCONUT FLOUR BREAD

A fluffy, soft bread that reminds me of white sandwich bread. It has a slight coconut flavour so it’s perfect with butter and sugar free jam.

S E R V I N G S : 1 4 P R E P T I M E : 1 0 M I N U T E S B A K E T I M E : 3 5 M I N U T E S

I N G R E D I E N T S

6 egg whites

2 egg yolks

½ cup / 60g coconut flour

¼ cup / 50g butter melted

¼ cup / 65g natural yoghurt 1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

P R O T I P

You can toast this bread, but be careful not to burn it! Coconut flour browns quickly.

D I R E C T I O N   Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 Fahrenheit.

  • Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • In a separate bowl, mix all other ingredients until combined.

  • Add egg whites to the dry ingredients and blend with an electric mixer until just combined, making sure to keep in as much air as possible.

  • Fill dough into a small bread tin lined with parchment paper and bake for 35 minutes or until lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
