Quick, Homemade, Low Carb Mug Bread
When you think of making bread, you probably think that it will be a very time-consuming process. Most bread recipes require you to knead the dough, let it rise, shape the bread, and let it rise again before you even get to put the bread in the oven. While bread made this way tastes good, we don’t always have a full day to spend making bread (I know I don’t!). Yeast raised breads are also typically made using white flour which is a big keto-no. So what to do when you still want bread, want it to be low carb, and want it right away? Keto mug bread of course!
You have probably heard of mug cake by now as it is a trendy way to make individually sized desserts. Lots of mug cakes are also keto-friendly since almond flour and coconut flour are the go-to ingredients to make most mug cakes. However, mug bread is a little newer to the scene but it is just as easy and just as delicious.
To make keto mug bread, all you need to do is put all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir them together. That means the almond flour, egg, baking powder, salt, butter, pepper, and garlic powder just get tossed in a bowl and mixed. How easy is that?!? Only seven ingredients and one step to make this awesome bread! If you want to save yourself a few dishes, you can even mix everything together right inside the mug you will be “baking” in. I like to use a bowl though to make sure everything is blended well. Since the bowl has more space, you can really beat the ingredients together thoroughly where I find the mug to be a little restricting.
Once you have your bread batter made, it is poured into a microwave-safe mug and then cooked in the microwave for 90 seconds. The bread should look set and not wet at all once it has baked. If you touch the center of the bread, it should also spring back to the touch and feel slightly spongy. At this point, you can drizzle more melted butter over the top of the bread to make it extra decadent and delicious. Since butter is like a keto dieter’s fuel (yay for all those fats!), feel free to add a little more!
Pop the low carb mug bread out of the mug and you have a perfect, round, slice of bread that you can then use however you’d like! Double the recipe, make two breads and you can put together a quick keto sandwich. Skip the garlic powder and pepper in the recipe and you have a sweeter bread ready to smother with almond butter. Roast a clove or two of garlic and spread the soft clove across the mug bread to enjoy your own, homemade garlic bread. The possibilities are endless!
You can use this bread in place of any regular, high carb bread so you don’t have to ever skip eating bread again! This recipe is fast, it is tasty and it gives us keto followers an enjoyable bread that we usually can’t have on this diet. Give it a try today and let us know what you think! There is nothing quite as delicious as biting into your own, homemade bread without worrying about carbs. Enjoy!
