The best soft and fluffy low-carb Keto bread made with almond flour in the microwave in just 90 seconds. It’s great for sandwiches, grilled cheese, with butter and much more!
If you’re on a low-carb, paleo or keto diet then you’re going to fall in love with this keto bread recipe. It’s so soft, fluffy and delicious, you’ll find it hard to believe that it’s actually keto. It’s all made in the microwave in just 90 seconds!
This bread is perfect for the mornings when you need a slice of bread to serve with your egg and bacon, for a breakfast or lunch sandwich, or for making grilled cheese. It’s perfectly soft and holds up great, especially when toasted.
For the bowl, I like to use a large ramekin or any small microwave-safe bowl. If you’re making grilled cheese, a small square sandwich size container works great.
To Make Microwave Keto Bread, You will Need:
1 Tablespoon butter or oil
3 Tablespoons Almond Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
To make, simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and pour into a greased microwave-safe bowl or ramekin. Microwave for 90 seconds. Flip out of the ramekin and slice in half.
To toast: butter a pan or skillet over medium heat and toast the bread until golden and crispy. Alternatively, toast in a toaster.
90 Second Low Carb Keto Bread
- 3 tablespoons almond flour or 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon butter or oil
- 1 medium/large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon double acting baking powder
- Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl or ramekin. Add the almond flour, egg and baking powder to the butter. Beat with a fork until completely mix.
- Microwave for about 90 seconds, until firm. Run a knife along the edge and flip over a plate to release. Slice in half, then toast in the toaster or in a skillet.
- To Bake: Pre-heat oven to 375F. Bake in a ramekin for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through.
Tried this today. Taste bad a first. Add everything bagel seasoning. Taste a little better. Will try some of the suggestions in the feed the next time. But. It will work as a bread substitute. Thanks
How do you sub the microwave? I don’t have a microwave!
You can bake in ramekins at 350F for 10 mins or until cooked through.
Thank you for the recipe! Is it just me or that’s how it tastes? I followed the recipe and the result tasted absolutely horrible, I had to put is in the bin. I did a second one beating the egg and I used avocado oil this time instead of butter and I used less than a half the amount of baking soda (less than 1/4 teaspoon) and activated it with a few drops of lemon to avoid that horrible taste from the baking soda. The result is absolutely delicious!

You can add 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter powder and a little package of artificial sweetener. It makes it kinda like dessert.
A little heavy whipping cream and a little artificial sweetener and pour that over it
You need to use baking powder not baking soda…
My family loves these, thank you so much for making my mornings easier 🙂
I want to ask, can I make these and store them in fridge over night?
You can store them in ziplock bags in the fridge and toast as needed.
I’ve had these and are really good. I’ve even passed the recipe to my daughter and she LOVES them. I need to know if I can use egg whites and not the yolk
Made this today and whipped the egg white until peaks formed as suggested in another recipe I found. I also used coconut flour. It came out nice and fluffy. 😁
I’ve experimented with this recipe a few times. Used different types of flours, such as wheat flour and oat flower. Even used flaxseed meal and it worked well. A few times I added some seasonings 🙂 Also, I’ve doubled the recipe and it’s just as easy!
The bread itself is nothing incredible, but it gets the job done for sure. Love the versatility of this recipe the most.
Good but definitely needed salt
How much flaxseed meal did you use as a substitute!

Finally a quick and easy alternative to a traditional English muffin. Hurray!! I added in a little red pepper vinaigrette to the batter to cut down on the egginess, and fried up with melted cheese, arugula and some spicy tuna salad.
Absolutely delicious, and surprisingly filling!
Definitely going to join my regular menu!
Thanks a million!
More of a savory muffin than bread. Not at all the crusty experience, I look for in bread. If this is the type of bread you are used to, you may be okay with it. I was disappointed that it feels more like cake than bread to me.
Roman, try it either in the oven or do what I do! I microwave mine, pop them out, slice then toast them. I think you will love it! I put cheesy egg and bacon between it.
How long do these keep in the refrigerator and can they be frozen?
Absolutely wonderful bread!! Loving it!!

Thank you so much for this recipe, it comes out really delicious. A real keto changer! I added some dry spices to the mix and next time I will try making a double dose to last me a few days.
This is a game changer towards my health goals. Much better than cloud bread (shouldn’t even be compared). I had a backwards everything bagel where I added cream cheese on top and then sprinkled the Mrs. Dash (everything but the salt) seasoning blend with the white top. This recipe was great for satisfying my craving for bread
My almond flour said 4 carbs per 2 tablespoons and my coconut flour said the same. How does the bread have only 2 net carbs? I hope it does because I really like it!
To get “net” carbs you have to subtract fiber. So I’m guessing your almond flour has about 3 grams of fiber per 2 tables, something like that?
Tammy L says
I recently started a low carb diet and have been making cloud bread. This provides nice variety. I love that has baking powder in it and gets a rise. I used egg beaters instead of an egg and it came out fine. It totally satisfy the desire for something bread like. I may try a pinch of salt in it next time.
Delicious with cream cheese and everything bagel seasoning. Yum.
Thank you for the recipe. My husband was over joyed with this recipe. The texture, the look of it, she’s the taste was aawesome
My first attempt at keto—sorry, may need to acquire a taste for this or do a little tweaking—maybe add a pinch of sweetener? It was a little dry and grainy and eggy; but what I’m mainly wondering is the calorie count—shouldnt it be about 292?
Right?? The calories are way, way off. One egg is about 70 calories; 3 Tbs of almond flour is about 180 calories; 1 Tbs olive oil is about 120 calories. That’s about 370 calories, not 220. They really gotta update this. The recipe is tasty for sure, though!
So light and yummy.
Is this 2 gram net carbs?
Could you tell me if Is is total carbs listed, 4g or net carbs?
I make this often and really like it, but lately it has tasted bitter. My almond flour is new and stored in the fridge, do you have any idea why I am getting this bitter taste, or maybe you have a suggestion to make it go away? Thanks!
Maybe the baking powder? does it contain aluminion?
Omg, I’m so embarrassed, I think I might have used baking soda lately by mistake.
No worries! Happens more than you think 😀
Hi- I thought I followed this recipe, but it had a metallic taste and temporarily turned my tongue purple, lol! Any idea what I could’ve done wrong?
Oh no! Did you use baking soda or baking powder?
Yeah throw your baking powder away and get a new can of it.
Matt Reeves says
These are so easy and great, toasted in a frying pan with butter and made a ham and cheese sammy. Wonderful, thank you so much.
Np! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Julie Lancaster says
I used these when I made sliders. I was really impressed that they held together with the hamburger meat on them. Definitely a keeper!
Julie Lancaster says
Awesome taste, versatile recipe and so easy to make.
It is so dry. What would help thus?
Your microwave may be a little strong. Next time, try microwaving it a few seconds less and see if the texture changes.
Just made this so easy peasy microwave bread. I can see many thing’s I can add to this recipe or just keep as it. Adding to my list of favorite recipes .
Add extra oil or butter
This is so good, I put cream cheese on mine. Will add a pinch of salt next time, and thinking I can turn this into a keto cake too. Thank you!
You are most welcome 🙂
Adele sweeting says
I made it and i added a pinch of salt a tablespoon of keto sugar and a tablespoon of MCT oil and it came out fabulous i use my bread to make stuffing for my Turkey just delicious
What is double acting baking powder?
Rebecca VandeWettering says
Basically and baking powder you buy at your local grocery store will be “double acting” baking powder, in fact you’d be hard pressed to find some that ISN’T double acting.

How would this be as a hamburger bun?
I made this today and all I can say is DELICIOUS! Yes, it’s a little eggy, but still berry good. I added a little pink salt and shredded cheddar. Topped it with an egg and cheese. Wonderful. Thanks 😀
Christine, try egg whites instead, not eggy at all.
This was delicious but I have a question about the nutrition facts. How is there only 4 grams of protein when an egg has 6 grams?
An egg is .60 carbs not 6
Sorry Nick!! I was referring to carbs
Allison Sonnier says
I really like the bread but do find it pretty dry! Any tips for making it less dry?
Add extra butter or oil
Mary A Martin says
Mine came out really fluffy. I’m glad that I have a wide slot toaster because slice it half they just fit. Toasted on setting 2.5 and it was perfect! Also, one is surprisingly filling. I thought I was going to have to make another one, but found that I didn’t need to. Can’t wait to try for a slider or a deli meat sandwich.
Great recipe! I tried it once with almond flour and once with coconut flour. The coconut flour tasted much better but easily crumbled. The almond flour stayed together great but needed some seasoning.
Thanks for sharing this!
Just made this recipe but added a tiny amount of salt and I toasted it in a pan on the stovetop. It was very delicious and I was very impressed with it. Even my fussy husband tried a piece and loved it. Thank You.
My daughter suggested this recipe. I tried to make cauliflower thins for sandwiches and they fell apart. I’m looking forward to this recipe.
I use 1 Tbsp of coconut flour plus 2 Tbsp Almond flour . I love this recipe, this is the only bread I eat. If I’m craving sweets,. I warm 1/2 slice of keto bread in microwave, put a handful of frozen blue berries in microwave to UN thaw, put them on the keto bread , the juice soaks up in the bread . I spray with Reddi Whip & it satisfies my hunger for something sweet. It’s delicious. You can als use strawberries👍
Julie Craig says
I make these EVERY morning now, everyone loves them, even the non Keto crew 🙂
My question is, can I make some a day ahead and just toast the next morning?
I make them up the night before. Found that cooking them in the oven tasted a lot better but they stick. This time I mixed everything together in a bowl, sprayed the ramekins with cooking spray then baked. Game Changer!
Alice L Shockley says
OH I’d love to try to bake this. How long did you bake them?
Rish Burkholder says
I love this his bread. For a cinnamon toast version, add 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the mix. French toast flavor? Add 1 tablespoon of Walden Farms Maple syrup to your mix. Your bread will be soft and moist. Awesome in the toaster.
Great bread recipe and super fast / easy to make. I’m going to try making it in a bigger batch next time.
I loved this! It’s a little too eggy but it’s ok. I put some olive oil, garlic and onion seasoning and salt for healthy garlic bread
looks wonderful – can you bake it instead of using the microwave? I don’t actually have a microwave.
Is it possible to sub the Almond flour for coconut flour?
Patricia Garcia says
It DOES say in the recipe, 3tbsp almond OR 1 tbsp coconut.
That said, I made the coconut one last night, I plan to compare both but don’t need to make or eat multiples at once. Used the biggest fattest mug because my ramekins are too small or too big. I wasn’t expecting it to shrink so much if at all since directions say to loosen edges after cooking- mine had a half inch gap all the way around. My big fat mug bread shrunk to smaller than a regular mug size. Idk if that’s the flour type or not, so be forewarned.
You can try subbing with a 1:4 ratio of coconut to almond flour
Rita Scarborough says
Added a dash of salt and a dash of erythrital and it was great! Thanks for sharing!
Lovely, quick bread. It was too messy mixing it in the ramekin itself. I poured it out into a desert bowl, cooking it in the ramekin. It mushroomed in the ramekin. I cooked the second one in the desert bowl. The second one came out better, but I need to find the perfect container to cook the break, rectangular would be perfect. Awesome bread though..
I just made this recipe and it turned out great! I added a little bit of sea salt and oregano and then I toasted in the pan. I paired it with sunny side up egg and avocado and it was very filling. Will definitely do it again. Thanks for all the tips.
Peggy Reed says
I rarely write reviews but had to on this one. Absolutely delicious! Had been doing Keto diet for a short time and seeing good results, but missed bread very much. This was so easy and turned out perfectly. It was delicious straight out of the toaster but I did sprinkle on some cinnamon and a bit of Stevia… Yum! It will definitely be a regular on my list of “allowable” foods.
So happy to hear that!
Shannan Carroll says
First time trying. Fluffed up nicely. No flavor though. Will try adding spices next time
Used it to make grilled cheese and the bread toasted very nicely and held together really well. Very easy to make also!
It was easy to make and tasted good. I really miss bread and this is a great substitute!
Mine came out terrible. So disappointed. The baking powder was overpowering. Thinking I will try again using less baking powder and see what happens.
Did the baking powder contain aluminum?
Is the nutrition value (1 bread) one slice or whole mug? When I calculate the ingredients myself I come up with a lot more so it would appear to be 1/2 mug (1 slice)? Wish I had realized it before eating it.
The nutritional value is for the entire mug (everything in the recipe) which can be sliced into 2-3 slices.
Charlotte pentecost says
Just wonderful, thank you for helping me have the things l miss most
Mary Bollmann says
We have tried other keto recipes. And I’ve got to say…….this is the best, most moist, flavorful bread we have ever tried!!!! And it was so easy to make!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! We just made mini ham sandwiches with it, they were so tasty!!!
What a treat!
Tamara Irene Carr says
Wow. You are so right. I’ve spent so much money on keto breads. Some loaves cost near $10 and just taste so nasty. Plus they have so many carbs in them. This recipe is completely without carbs and is delicious. Who ever invented this recipe I thank-you.
