Low Carb High Fiber Breakfast Bread

low carb psyllium bread

One of the questions we get asked frequently when a person chooses to go on a low carb keto diet, is if they will be able to get enough fiber on this plan. The short answer is yes, if you are eating plenty of green vegetables. Remember the majority of the carbs you will consume on a low carb plan come from plenty of fresh vegetables.

Where the challenge lies is that most people are just not eating enough vegetables, and by the time they come to a low carb diet, they have spent a lifetime avoiding them. Which means it will take a little time to embrace them. The other problem is that the few vegetables that they did consume were usually those high in starches and carbohydrates.

So what’s the solution? Besides making sure you are drinking enough water and eating the right vegetables, I would recommend a fiber supplement in the way of psyllium, while your body adjusts. What you want is a psyllium powder that is plain and not loaded with sugars or other unnecessary fillers. Once your body gets fully keto-adapted you will find that being regular is not an issue.

I created this breakfast low carb high fiber bread as an excellent way to add more fiber into your diet effortlessly. This recipe is full of nuts, seeds and psyllium, all the ingredients that ensure you are getting enough fiber and prebiotics.

This recipe makes a delicious filling bread that slices and toasts beautifully. It can easily be customized by using your favorite seeds and nuts. I hope you will give it a try!

½ cup coconut flour

1 cup of almond flour

1 stick of melted butter (1/2 cup)

½ cup of plain psyllium powder

½ cup of sugar substitute (I use Swerve)

½ teaspoon of sea salt

1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder

½ cup sesame seeds

½ cup of chopped pecans

½ cup of raw whole flaxseeds

½ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes

6 large eggs

1 cup of coconut or almond milk

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Melt the butter and allow to cool. In a large stand-up mixer add all the dry ingredients including all the nuts, seeds and combine well. Next add the eggs one at a time, the coconut or almond milk and the cooled melted butter. Mix the batter well until fully incorporated. Note that this batter will be thick.

Place the batter into a well-greased large loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean. Allow the bread to fully cool before slicing. Store in refrigerator or freeze. Enjoy toasted with butter or your favorite low carb topping.

    I made this today and both my husband and I love it! I had to make one substitution. I was out of flax seeds, so I decided to grind up some walnuts instead. It really worked well. I also threw in some poppy seeds.

    This recipe is Very Good! Thanks!

    I calculated total carbs in complete recipe at 52 – 53. Carbs without sesame seeds = 36.
    The sesame seeds are 10.3 net carbs in the 1/2 cup. You might reduce sesame seeds to 2 tablespoons (at 1.1 carb per tablespoon). If you reduce sesame seeds to 2 tablespoons, rather than 1/2 cup, the recipe would be 38 carbs total. Carb count for 10 slices would be 3.8 each. 12 slices would be 3.1 each.

        I wish I could tell you that I have one place to check carb counts, but I don’t. I go several places until I find what I am looking for, however, not all are created equal. Several places had 1/2 cup sesame seeds at 17 net carbs, but then I found several others that had it at 10.3. I then found that not all sesame seeds are equal – the plain dried ones are lowest carb. The toasted and salted ones are higher. Most places I use will list carbs and fiber, but you have to calculate the net carbs from that. I wish I could find an app to do net carbs for me. I haven’t found one yet, but I keep looking. Anyway, here are several places I used:

    This bread is perfection!! I reeeeaally like it. It’s the best bread I’ve made yet. I used ground flax instead of psyllium husk. It was actually fun making this with all the seeds and nuts, Thanks for yet another awesome recipe!
