Keto Flax Bread Recipe

I remember growing up, bread was a staple part of my diet. Whether it was eggs with toast for breakfast, a sandwich in my school lunch, or a quick PB & J as a snack, I couldn’t go a day without eating bread!

Since making the leap to Keto, I’ve completely eliminated this staple from my diet, but I still have the occasional craving. I miss the smell of visiting my grandma’s house, and being engulfed by the smell of fresh baked banana bread upon entry.

Obviously, bananas, and most fruits in general, are a no-go because of their high sugar content, but that didn’t stop me from experimenting! I’ve made flax bread in the past, but I figured, why not try and make a flavored bread? Here’s my take on a keto-friendly banana bread recipe:

Low Carb Flax Bread (Banana Flavored)

Low Carb Flax Bread

Ingredients

  • 3 Whole eggs
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of sweetener
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of baking powder

Directions

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients
  • Crack the eggs into the mixing bowl and whisk in the eggs and imitation banana extract with the dry ingredients
  • Thoroughly grease or butter a baking tray and pour the mixture into it
  • Place the tray into a 350 F degree oven, and bake for 15-20minutes or until fully cooked (test with a toothpick). I love using my small toaster oven for baking small batches!
  • Remove from the oven, and let it cool before serving


Keto Bread RecipeThis keto-friendly bread came out better than I expected! Sure, I didn’t use a pan that was ideal for sandwiches, but with the banana and sweet flavor to the bread, it was almost like a keto cake! You could even toss in half of a banana if you’ve some carbs to spare, or follow a paleo diet for more banana flavor.

When serving this sweet loaf of bread, I just topped it with a knob of butter since I enjoy my bread a little moist. You could also top it with cream cheese or sugar free syrup and treat it like a bagel!

While I made a sweet loaf of bread, you can always take out the sweetener, cinnamon, and banana extract to make a savory loaf. Heck, you could even add in some fresh rosemary, thyme or basil to make an aromatic loaf of bread!

Using ground flaxseed as a base, you can make all types of low carb friendly breads, muffins, and even pancakes. I love cooking with flax since it’s a great source of dietary fiber and a ton of other great health benefits. Experiment around and let me know what combination of ingredients you decide to use!

You give nutrition values but didn’t include the fiber. Is the 7 grams carbohydrates the NET fiber? Please advise. Thanks. I’ll try this IF the NET carbs are lower than 7 grams carbs posted. I can make the Keto Bread from Keto King and add banana flavoring and nuts to it for the 2.2 NET carbs it has per slice. Your recipe really does look good though! Hope it has less carbs than the 7.
Thanks for the post.

    Hey Jeanne! Sorry about the lack of clarity. I posted this back in the day where My Fitness Pal didn’t show the breakdown between Carbohydrates and Fiber. I had to take a look at the recipe again just to confirm.

    https://www.bobsredmill.com/flaxseed-meal.html based on the nutritional information for the product that I used (may vary slightly based on the brand of ground flax seed), the carb to fiber ratio was 75% so in this case it should be about 2-2.5g net carbs per portion as well. The only ingredients that contain carbs would be the flax seed (almost all fiber) since the other ingredients have a very negligible amount of carbs (<1g for the other flavouring ingredients).
