Nut-Free and Seed-Free Ketogenic Bread Recipes
We know many of you may have nut allergies or seed allergies, so we’ve intentionally found several nut-free and seed-free ketogenic bread recipes for you to enjoy.
All of the keto bread recipes in this section use coconut flour instead of a nut or seed flour. For most nut-allergy sufferers, coconut flour is a great alternative for baking with. Also, coconut flour is low in carbohydrates so these breads can be enjoyed without kicking you out of ketosis.
If you’re not familiar with coconut flour, then it’s flour made from ground dried coconut meat. Most of the oils is also pressed out of the coconut meat along with the water, so coconut flour is mostly fiber!
When cooking with coconut flour, note that it does not behave like other flours because it doesn’t have hardly any fat or protein in it. So, if you don’t add some sort of binder and some sort of fat to the recipe, then you’ll end up creating something that falls apart and tastes really dry. Most low-carb bread recipes using just coconut flour will also use a lot of eggs as the eggs provide protein and fats to counteract the lack of those components in coconut flour. That’s why bread made using coconut flour can sometimes taste a bit eggy unfortunately.

Crackers and Flat Bread Ketogenic Recipes
Sometimes, what you want to make is a flat bread or a cracker instead of a regular loaf of bread. Flat breads are great to go with curries or for loading salads on. And crackers are even better. Many people love crunchy textures, and keto crackers are a great way to enjoy some food with a crunch. We highly recommend spreading some guacamole or some liver pate on your crackers so that you can enjoy a delicious and super nutritious (and high fat) snack.

Almond Flour Ketogenic Bread Recipes
If you’re looking for some great ketogenic bread recipes, then almond flour recipes will generally produce the best ones. Almond flour has more fat and more protein than coconut flour. That means the bread produced will be less dry and have a texture closer to regular wheat bread.
Almond flour is pretty easy to buy, but if you don’t have access to it, then you can make your own easily by just food processing some whole almonds. You’ll usually end up with a coarser flour (often called almond meal) than store-bought almond flour, but for most ketogenic recipes, it’ll work just fine.
Other nut flours can be used instead of almond flour as well, or if you want to play around with flavors, you can use a mixture of flours. Popular nut flour options include walnut flour, cashew flour, and pecan flours. However, note that while nuts and seeds are considered very low carb foods, they do still contain some carbohydrates (other than fiber). Check out our table here to see which nuts and seeds you shouldn’t eat too much of on a ketogenic diet.
We often get asked if it’s possible to just take a regular wheat flour bread recipe and switch out the wheat flour and put in coconut (or almond) flour instead. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple of a substitution and that’s why we recommend you follow one of these tried and tested ketogenic bread recipes instead of trying to cobble one together by yourself. If you just want to experiment, then please by all means, go ahead. But you might want to use one of these keto recipes as a starting point in your experiments.
If this is your first foray into making keto bread recipes, then we highly recommend giving this next recipe a try. It’s super easy and super quick to make. The Microwave Paleo Bread uses just 5 ingredients, and it takes just 5 minutes to make. That way, if you don’t like keto bread, you’ll find out very quickly and with very little effort!

Other Ketogenic Bread Recipes
In our search for delicious keto bread recipes, we also found a bunch that didn’t quite fit into the other sections. So instead of throwing them out, we’ve listed them here so that you can give them a try at your leisure. All of these bread recipes use nuts or seeds (other than almond flour) as the base flour.
We’ve also added in a recipe for making bread crumbs – it’s not quite the same as bread, but it’s pretty close, and we thought this keto recipe might come in handy if you wanted to make some to scatter on a salad as a crouton substitute.
The next recipe in this list is very different from the others – this ketogenic bread recipe uses probiotic capsules to create a fermented bread taste. Give it a try if you get a chance as it’s definitely something different!
A quick note about flaxseed meal as it’s used in several ketogenic recipes for bread: We’ve found that flaxseeds, when ground, can go rancid very quickly. That’s why we don’t use it in our own recipes anymore. However, if you want to use flaxseed meal, then we recommend you make your own (just buy flax as a whole seed and then place it into a food processor or a coffee grinder and process well). That way you can use freshly ground flaxseed meal that isn’t rancid in recipes.
