Keto 1 Minute Microwave Bread

Keto 1 Minute Microwave Bread

This Keto 1 Minute Microwave Bread is about to make your low carb life a whole lot easier!

It really does taste like bread. There's no almond flour involved and very little coconut flour so you get a much more realistic bread texture as compared to many other keto bread recipes.

Now this keto microwave bread recipe does contain vital wheat gluten. If you haven't heard of it, it is a very low carb flour created by extracting the protein from wheat (aka the gluten protein).

On it's own gluten flour is mainly protein with a small amount of carbohydrates attached (about the same as a cup of almond flour) so it's very much keto friendly.

The only exception is if you are celiac or gluten intolerant. That is when you'll want to avoid gluten flour and instead try out another keto microwave bread recipe such as this one: Easy Keto Bread Recipe (2 Minutes) 

This recipe also contains lupin flour. Lupin flour is amazing for “softening” keto baked goods and providing a texture you just cannot achieve with any other flour. It makes for a super pliable and fluffy keto sandwich bread. I use the Modern Mountain Flour brand of lupin flour myself. You can try it for 10% off if you use 10SAMMYSAM!

Ingredients In Keto Microwave Bread

  • Vital Wheat Gluten – Gives the bread elasticity and stretch so when we knead the dough, it becomes a little chewier and has structure once baked, just like traditional bread recipes.
  • Oat Fiber – Adds bulk to the recipe without adding hardly any additional carbs. It's very high in fiber as well!
  • Lupin Flour – Super cool newer keto ingredient on the market these days. Like oat fiber, this flour is very low in carbs and high in fiber but it also gives the amazing effect of “softening” low carb bread products. With this ingredient, you get a softer, fluffier bread than you would with any other low carb flour. If you'd like to try it, use discount code 10SAMMYSAM for a 10% discount either on the Modern Mountain Flour website or on Amazon!
  • Coconut Flour – Used in small amounts, this is great for thickening recipes without adding any unwanted flavour or texture! Coconut flour keeps our bread lighter as opposed to almond flour.
  • Xanthan Gum – Similar to vital wheat gluten, this helps to thicken our bread, add elasticity and a bit of chewiness to it. 
  • Baking Powder – Used to create rise in our bread since we are not using yeast! We use quite a bit as keto baked goods require additional leavening as opposed to their traditional counterparts. 
  • Allulose – Used to sweeten the bread ever so slightly! Sweetening keto breads is important because without it, the breads tend to taste bitter due to the different flours used and not the same as what we might be used to. 
  • Salt – Added for flavour of course! You can use any additional spices you'd like as well. Garlic and parmesan seasoning + some italian spices is great if you also want to brush this bread with garlic butter after baking and melt some cheese on it for a keto garlic bread!
  • Olive Oil – Necessary for the bread to stay fresh/soft longer at room temperature. You can add a touch more in place of a little water if you'd like your bread to keep longer. You can also use coconut oil here if you don't mind the flavour!
  • Water – The main ingredient to get the dough to come together! Try adding 1 tbsp low carb milk or heavy cream in place of a tablespoon of water for an even softer bread dough.  vital wheat gluten microwave bread

Tools I Used To Create Keto 1 Minute Microwave Bread

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Parchment Paper (to knead the dough on – optional, can also use a clean surface)
  • Rolling Pin
  • Rubbermaid TakeAlongs Food Storage Container  (optional, you can also use a large plate or rectangle dish! This just creates a nice shape for 2 slices of keto bread)

Tips For Making Keto 1 Minute Microwave Bread

  • This bread calls for allulose as a sweetener to offset the bitter taste of keto flours. Allulose is used because it provides a light sweetness. If using another sweetener that measures like sugar, be sure to use HALF as much sweetener as called for. 
  • Want to soften this bread even more? Use 1 tbsp heavy cream in place of 1 tbsp of water (you might need a touch more water to bring your dough together so just adjust as needed).
  • Try adding spices to this bread if you wish! It's really delicious with garlic, parmesan and italian spices. Spread garlic butter on it after baking and toast it in the oven for a couple minutes with some additional mozzarella and parmesan cheese sprinkle on top!
  • This can also be a sweet bread if you increase the sweetener and use 1 tbsp heavy cream in place of water (add additional water if needed) along with some cinnamon. This works great for later making french toast with!
  • When microwaving your bread, 1 minute is usually ideal for most microwaves but if yours tends to take longer than average to heat things then try 1 minute 20s or 1 min 30s. Just note that this bread will firm up more as it cools so be careful not to over-cook it.
  • For bread that stays fresh longer, try using a little more olive oil. Olive oil helps to preserve the bread's softness. 
  • You can make this bread on a plate or in a rubbermaid container or any other sort of rectangular or square container. Just know, how thin or thick you roll the dough out will adjust the microwave time slightly.
