Don’t have an hour to spend on your sandwich? You can make this 5-minute bread with simple ingredients like coconut flour and unsweetened almond milk. All you have to do is toss it in the microwave for five minutes or so after you mix up the batter.
This keto breakfast bread is also a versatile and easy option with a great texture, or try keto cloud bread, which uses mostly eggs and cream cheese for a super low carb version of bread. You might also want to try a recipe for keto cornbread or keto banana bread.
Of course, if your goal is to eat a sandwich, you could just do without the bread. Protein from the deli meat you typically buy is still a great option and you can substitute lettuce wraps for your bread. You can still pile on all of your favorite keto toppings like mayo, bacon, and avocado, and you will not have to worry about whether it will kick you out of ketosis. On Ketogenic.com, you’ll find recipes for salmon salad lettuce wraps, shrimp lettuce wraps, and Asian chicken lettuce wraps.
Is Store-Bought Keto Bread Really Keto?
Spend a little time perusing your local grocery store and you are likely to find many bread options that claim to be keto-friendly on the packaging. Unfortunately, you are likely to spend three times as much on some of these keto loaves simply because they come with this desirable label.
It may be time to peel back the label on some of these bread options to see: are they really keto?
Aldi is one store that boasts an affordable solution with their La Oven brand, which boasts zero net carbs (total carbohydrates minus fiber). At under $3.00 per loaf, it seems like a great option, but it could still impact your metabolism. To find out if it really passes muster, we take a deep dive into Aldi keto bread in our article here.
The bottom line with store-bought products? Take a look at the ingredients, do your own research, check to see if it’s Ketogenic Certified, and, most importantly, find out how your own body reacts. One way is to test your ketones before and after eating the product.
