Ingredients

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large regular bowl), add the Carbalose, powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener, sugar and yeast. Whisk to combine.
  • Fit your bowl into the stand mixer and add the dough hook attachment. (If you don't have a stand mixer, simply use a large wooden spoon).
  • Add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and salt and start the mixer on the lowest setting (for a bowl, just start to stir the oil and salt into the rest of the ingredients).
  • Slowly add the 1 1/4 cups of the water to the mixture and continue to stir or mix. Add the extra couple tablespoons one at a time as needed to moisten the dough. (Our goal here is to have all of the flour completely blended into the dough and to achieve a dough that's soft but not sticking to everything).
  • Continue the stand mixer on low for another 5min. If you are doing this by hand, you'll want to start kneading the dough once all of the ingredients are mixed together. Knead the dough on a well oiled surface for ~10min.
  • Once the 5min is up. Remove the dough from the stand mixer and begin kneading it for another 3-4min. (If you kneaded it by hand, you can knead for 3 more minutes or go straight to step 7 and 8 if you think your dough is kneaded enough).
  • To tell if you dough is kneaded enough, pick it up in one hand with your fingers slightly spread apart. Does it hold its shape relatively well? Then it's done! The dough should also stretch a bit without breaking and a finger pressed into the dough should result in it springing back slowly (doesn't have to spring back 100%). If in doubt, knead for another 2-3min.
  • Knead the dough one last time and form it into a nice large oval (doesn't have to be perfect!) Place the dough into a greased 8 x 4 inch loaf pan and cover it loosely with saran wrap or a towel and set it aside to rise for ~1 hour or until doubled in size. (If your kitchen is relatively warm, just leave it on a counter. If it's a bit chilly like mine then you can heat a glass of water for a minute in the microwave, then remove it and set the dough inside to rise (depending on how warm it is, you may want to leave the door ajar, we don't want it rising TOO quickly either).
  • After your dough has pretty much doubled in size, pre-heat your oven to 325*F.
  • Once the oven comes to temperature, remove the saran wrap or towel and bake the bread for 50-65min. It will be pale in colour but golden around the edges and the top will be hard if you give it a tap.
  • Let it cool slightly before dumping it out of the pan (you may need to gently run a knife along the edges if it doesn't come out of the pan right away). Slice, serve and enjoy your Easy Keto Bread!

Notes

Tips For Making Keto Bread With Yeast
  • You can also use regular yeast, just be sure to proof it first before adding it to the dry ingredients. 
  • Make sure your water is warm but not hot when adding it to the dry ingredients.
  • Add a bit more water to the dough as you mix it if there are still dry ingredients that are not yet incorporated. 
  • To check if the dough is kneaded enough, follow the directions in the instructions. It should be able to hold its shape and when a finger is pressed into it, it should slowly rise to fill the hole (it's okay if it doesn't 100% spring back but it should to some degree).
  • When baking the bread, always ere on the side of baking MORE rather than less if you are unsure if it's done. 
  • If you want to impart more flavour into the bread, try adding some spices and herbs such as basil, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, etc. 
  • You could even add some parmesan to the dough and sprinkle the top of the bread with cheese part-way through baking for a cheese bread!
  • I recommend thin slices for better toasting and sandwiches as this is a denser, more filling bread!
