I think this is the third review I've done on this recipe. I was out of butter yesterday so I made it with coconut oil. It came out delicious. I also add half a teaspoon of truvia sweetener, eighth of a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and stir in 1/4 cup of blueberries. Read More

Needed to complete my review. It s a different flavor. More egg taste than bread flavor. I cooked 2 min. In microwave slipped right out of mug. Texture was moist and held together like a bread. Easy but needs some flavoring added to cover up the egg taste and I love eggs. May try sweetener or even more almond flour or toast it and butter it. Won t make again as recipe is. Read More

This recipe has changed my life!! After making the original recipe I tried it different ways. So far I have made this every day. I have covered the batter with seeds(sunflower, sesame and poppy seed) and used for an open face sloppy joe. I really wanted something sweet so I added a non-sugar sweetener (monk fruit) and a little vanilla and it was as good as any regular muffin. Next I plan on doing it with lemon and poppy seeds and may try with garlic butter. I have also thought this could be used as croutons on a salad (which I really miss!). I I am not even doing a keto diet-I just wanted to cut back on grains and I do not miss breads at all. You have to be careful not to over cook (mine usually is done in less than 90 sec) and it takes less time than making toast or frying an egg and so much healthier. And don't be afraid to really mix the batter well. ( I use a small whisk). Unlike grain flours that need to be handled gently so the gluten will form, you can just beat the heck out of almond flour. I find I get different textures depending on how well I mix. The longer I mix, the more cake-like texture I get. Read More

I decided to try out the keto diet and was looking for recipes of things I knew I would miss. Quick, keto-bread in under 3 minutes (from start to finish)? Sure why not. It definitely did not taste like regular bread, but the texture was just like it. In terms of taste, to me, it was more like a corn-bread (a bit more dry than regular bread). After making it (and being amazed at how it changed from a runny glob to something spongey), I sliced it up and popped the slices in the toaster. Added butter on one piece (was still kind of dry), but added cream cheese to another one. Not bad at all! Definitely helps if you're wanting "toast" Read More

I'm a carbetarian that is trying to make it on Keto. This might just be what saves me. Is it the best bread I've ever had? No, its not but it was 100 times better than I imagined when I saw I could make a low carb bread in 2 mins. Its actually a pretty decent bread. Read More

This was really good, and super easy too! The texture was almost exactly like regular bread. I added a tiny bit of xanthan gum and it was sturdy enough to make thin slices. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Ok I made this this morning. I am four days on keto and when I tasted it my first thought was wow I miss bread. Then the second bite wow this is kind of like cornbread. ****idea Keto chicken cornbread dressing **** so I doubled the recipe using only one egg and adding 1/4cup chicken broth zero carbs poultry season and chopped chicken. I didn’t have green onions but used dry chives....... yum! Still improving but thank you Baby Jesus! Read More

I love love love this bread! I have used it for keto grilled ham & cheese and most recently for a keto pizza. It’s fast, easy and delicious. It’s a great alternative to traditional bread when you want a sandwich (or pizza). I personally prefer it grilled or toasted as it gives it a bit more of a “crust”. Thanks for this awesome recipe! I’ll be sharing the heck out of it !! Read More

It’s very good. Very bread like. Nice texture. Firm enough to make a sandwich. Flavour is nice and mild. Good bread substitute for low carb and wheat free people. Will definitely make again! Read More
