Keto herb bread

This is the most delicious savoury ketogenic herb bread we have created so far. Peppered with thyme and chia seeds. This bread has a great texture without being eggy.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 2 tbs psyllium husks
  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 2 tbs dried thyme
  • 1 cup edam cheese cubed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups of hot water or mild earl gray tea
  • 1 tsp almond essence
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 egg yolks 
  • 1 tbs Blyss monkfruit sweetener
  • 50g butter
  • 40g olive oil
  • optional: 1/2 cup sliced black pitted olives

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees C
  2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks and immediately beat them to a soft peak. Add cream of tartar and beat till whites are stiff.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and stir in the softened butter, yolk and olive ail. Add in the hot tea and stir till combined. Leave it for 2 minutes till water is absorbed and it becomes a drier dough. Mix in the cheese cubes. 
  4. With oiled hands, shape into buns on a lined tray and bake for 25-30 min. If you are baking into a loaf, extend cooking time by ten min. Place on rack to cool and allow leftover moisture to evaporate.
