KETO BLUEBERRY BREAD
After my pumpkin bread turned out so good, I was excited to experiment with various other flavors. The challenge in creating a recipe for breads that are keto friendly is you don’t want them to taste eggy because when you are craving bread, you aren’t craving eggs. (Can I get an amen?) I was shocked at how good this Keto Blueberry Bread turned out. Somehow, the bread was amazingly crusty, which means that it is definitely not eggy! I call that a success. When I asked my 11 yr old son to taste it he responded with, “Mom, that is really really good. Yum!” That in itself is a success in my book.

I would love to write some quirky little story to go along with the recipe but I respect all y’all’s time too much and I personally hate scrolling through 15 paragraphs of inspiration behind the creation.
Fact is. This is my 4th week of keto and I got bored of the same old same old and I like to cook, so here it goes. Used the base recipe from Keto Connect, improvised the rest.
1 1/2 c blanched almond flour
4 T unsalted butter
1/4 t salt
3 t baking powder
1/4 t cream of tartar
2 t liquid stevia
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 c blueberries
DIRECTIONS: PREHEAT OVEN TO 375
- Separate 6 eggs into two bowls.
- In the egg white bowl, add 1/4 t cream of tartar, blend until soft peaks. (About 1-2 minutes)
- In the yolk bowl, add 4T melted butter, 3 t baking powder, 1/4 t salt, 1 t vanilla extract and 2 t liquid stevia. Blend while adding the 1 1/2 c of almond flour 1/3 at a time.
- Pour half of the fluffy egg whites into the mix.
- Pour the last of the egg whites in and softly fold in with a spatula.
- Lightly spray a standard bread pan with the oil of your choice, I use coconut oil cooking spray.
- Pour in half of the mixture, sprinkle in the 1/2 cup of blueberries. Then pour in the rest of the mix. (I pour in a little mix first to prevent the blueberries from sticking to the bottom)
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Set on a wire rack, let cool for 10 minutes before taking out of pan and cutting.
