Hello Everyone! Tell me it hasn’t been as long as I think it has…Well, I suppose life has kinda been happening to me for the last few years and this blog has taken a back seat. The good news is I have still been baking and creating, just not sharing. I do want to get back into posting, as I am always trying to remember which recipes I used, loved, hated, etc., and this blog kind of helps me keep it all sorted.
Life update: I have just finished my junior year of my bachelors degree in health administration. It is crazy to think I am almost there! Whoohoo!!! Raise of hands for all you beautiful people who work about full time and do school full time! I am proud of you! It it takes a lot of guts, but hey it literally_pays off_sorry! That was corny.
Anyways, enough about me and now about this food. So I am actually working on this new kind of cooking. I am not officially on the Keto diet because, lets be honest, this girl could never stick to something like that forever. I am, however, trying to eat a lot less sugar and flour and more protein for the summer months. Low and behold a lot of Keto recipes do just that! I am going to try a ton of Keto recipes in my kitchen this summer and share the ones that taste the most like my beloved baked-goods and home-kitchen, food with y’all! (yes, living in the south for 5 years does something to ya!)
My new personal favorite is Keto Cream Cheese Pancakes, which I will be sharing soon. I didn’t save enough to photograph. That should wet your appetite!
This week, I will be sharing the best Keto bread! It is a recipe from Keto Connect. After doing Keto for 3 years, they stated this was one of the best. Needless to say, I believed them and found it was delicious!
When I originally started off doing no flour and sugar, I was a mess because I wanted bread. I have never done a health kick, because I can’t give it up! So I am trying to find something I can eat that will satisfy my
bread addiction love of bread. Now, if you are expecting good ole’ fashion wheat flour bread….AIN’T NOTHIN’ GONNA REPLACE IT! But, let me tell ya folks, this bread here is an acceptable supplement. Especially if you toast these little babies and put some sort of compliant sauce (avocado mayo, mustard, or whatever you do) on this and make a sandwich, it does fill the craving of a sandwich. I have found also toasting this and adding cream-cheese or butter with coffee is a nice way to start the day. 🙂 There is hope my healthy friends!
Original Recipe from Keto Connect can be found here.
BEST KETO BREAD
♥ 1 1/ Cups Almond Flour
♥ 6 Large Eggs Separated
♥ 1/4 Cup of Melted Butter
♥ 1/4 tsp of Cream of Tartar
♥1 Pinch of Salt
♥ 6 Drops of Liquid Stevia (to lessen the egg flavor)
Preheat oven to 375.
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.
In a food processor combine the egg yolks, 1/3 of the beaten egg whites, melted butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt (Adding ~6 drops of liquid stevia to the batter can help reduce the mild egg taste). Mix until combined. This will be a lumpy thick dough until the whites are added.
Add the remaining 2/3 of the egg whites and gently process until fully incorporated. Be careful not to overmix as this is what gives the bread it’s volume!
Pour mixture into a buttered 8×4 loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure the bread is cooked through. Enjoy! 1 loaf makes 20 slices.
