Keto Bread Recipe
I have been living a grain-free life for many years. It’s not like I have a chip on my shoulder when it comes to wheat. I just think in general, we eat too much of it. Plus, most commercial or homemade bread recipes contain a TON of carbs.
That's where this easy and delicious Keto Bread Recipe comes into play. So easy to make as well as ridiculously healthy and absolutely delicious.
The BEST Paleo Bread Recipe
How do I know it’s the best keto and paleo bread recipe best? Well, I’ve tried just about every keto bread recipe over the past three years and decided that nothing tasted like regular bread. There are a couple that are good, but I still have yet to find perfection.
So, instead of trying to recreate a paleo bread recipe that was just like regular commercial bread, I decided to create a keto nut and seed bread that would be as satisfying (and healthier and heartier!) than regular bread.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s simple, and once you have it down, you can replicate this keto bread recipe and flavour it however you want. I’ve been making a low-carb loaf every other Sunday for the past few weeks, store slices in the freezer so that I am ready for any snack attack!
It’s so nice to have a loaf of bread at your disposal when you’re on a keto diet. It almost feels like cheating. And, since it is Whole30, Paleo, Gluten-free and Dairy-Free, there is absolutely no guilt when indulging in this keto bread recipe!
Nordic Nut and Seed Bread
I first saw Nordic Nut and Seed Bread Recipes when I first started this blog. Unlike American bread, this Nordic version isn't really like any bread you grew up with. There is no flour, yeast or leavening agent in this bread. As for the texture, it is super dense and REALLY filling.
If you look in the specialty bread section of your grocery store, you will notice that the European bread, such as Mestemacher Natural High Fiber Bread, are typically nut or seed-based, only contain a handful of ingredients and are also very dense and small loaves.
So, by copying the basic formula, this Nordic Nut and Seed Bread ends up creating a nice, super healthy, nutrient-packed dense loaf that is so filling, it will keep you satisfied for hours!
Don't freak out when you read the ingredient list...yes...there are actually about 6 cups of nuts and seeds in this loaf. But since this bread is so satisfying, I actually slice it VERY thinly and get about 20 slices per loaf.
Why Make This Easy and Healthy Gluten-Free Bread?
Unfortunately, in today’s world, they have created what I like to refer to as “super wheat”. When wheat was first created, the amount of gluten (the protein component in the wheat grain) was not as high as it is today.
By genetically modifying the wheat plant, the food industry has been able to create a new wheat variety that has a very high level of gluten. This GMO plant means that less wheat is needed in order to create the same amount of bread.
That’s great news for the wheat industry but bad news for many people that can not tolerate the higher levels of gluten. Hence, the rise in a gluten-intolerant population.
Although there are many “gluten-free” bread products, most of these products have a lot of additives as well as added sugars. I don't know about you, but most gluten-free products also do not taste very good and have a very limited nutritional value.

Tips for Whole30 Bread Recipe
- Use a combination of nuts and seeds. Use whatever you have lying around, it will work as long as you follow the rest of the directions.
- If you want, you can chop the nuts or leave them whole. I have made it both ways and once the bread has fully cooled, the large nuts will cut when the bread is sliced
- Do not omit the flax seed, and if possible use ground flax seeds. These, along with the egg, serve as a binder for the bread.
- Cook for the specified length of time. You won't be able to do a chopstick test on it while it's hot. There's not a lot that truly needs cooking forever, but I haven't had time to experiment with shorter cook times. I can tell you it works beautifully at 45 minutes.
- Be sure to grease the pan well so that the keto bread recipe pops right out.
- Serve with lots of butter, a slice of cheese or any plain
- I like to freeze the bread and then slice it - this makes slicing really thin slices much easier.
Is this keto bread recipe dairy-free?
This recipe calls for oil, which makes it dairy-free. You could always use melted butter, Ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil as other options.
Is the Whole30 Bread recipe gluten-free?
Yes! This Whole30 bread recipe and all of my other keto bread recipes are gluten-free.
Do you need to refrigerate this Paleo bread recipe?
No. You do not need to refrigerate this bread. However, since this keto bread recipe makes over 20 slices, you may need to refrigerate or freeze it if you are not going to eat the entire loaf within about 5 days.
I always freeze my loaf and then slice it very thinly. I store the slices in a storage bag in the freezer. Whenever I am craving a snack, I simply pull out a slice and heat it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
How Many Carbs are in this Keto Bread Recipe?
A good keto bread should contain fewer than 3g of carbs per slice. This Nordic Nut and Seed Bread recipe is as close to no-carb bread as you can get. It comes out to about 2 grams of net carbs per slice (and 9 grams of fiber per slice!), making it a great option. Depending on the type of nut and seeds you are using, your keto bread may come out with a different carb count, but it will still be a healthier alternative to wheat bread.
