Bulletproof Bread: Keto, Low Carb Bread Recipe

Bake Bulletproof Bread With This Keto, Low Carb Bread Recipe

When I recommend that people give up gluten (which I do regularly) one of the most common responses is “I could never stop eating bread.”
No surprise – bread is delicious, and it was probably a dietary staple for most of us growing up. It’s also fairly toxic. For many people, gluten (and therefore bread) links to gut inflammation, brain fog, weight gain, and autoimmune disease. To top it off, wheat is especially susceptible to mold growth and mycotoxin contamination, which brings with it a whole host of health problems, from hormone disruption to cancer. No wonder so many people are going gluten-free1.
As the gluten-free diet grows in popularity, so does the rise of gluten-free, low carb bread (no pun intended). Often, though, gluten-free breads are no better than the loafs they imitate. They usually have an equally high glycemic load and contain ingredients derived from corn, potatoes, or soy. Not Bulletproof. But what if you could have your bread and eat it, too?
That’s where Bulletproof bread – keto, low carb bread – comes in. It’s pure fat and protein, so it’ll keep you in a fat-burning, energy-producing ketogenic state (you can read up on ketosis here). It’s also a near perfect replacement for normal bread, from texture to taste. Try it with butter, serve a burger on it, make a BLT with it – it’s firm and chewy enough to stand in for bread in pretty much any recipe.
Oh, and did I mention it’s only three ingredients?
Learn how to make it here in this awesome video from Bulletproof Ambassador Veronica Culver. The original recipe suggests whey protein, but baking denatures whey and can cause inflammation. Try using collagen instead. The bread will still turn out beautifully.

Bulletproof Bread Recipe For Keto, Low Carb Bread:

Makes 1 Loaf
Ingredients:

  1. 6 pastured eggs, separated
  2. 1/2 cup grass-fed Bulletproof Collagen Protein
  3. Grass-fed butter (to grease pan)

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Use middle rack and remove any racks above as bread will expand while baking.
Generously butter a loaf pan/dish with grass-fed butter. (Side note: If possible, use a ceramic pan. The bread will cook evenly without sticking, and a ceramic pan won’t leach chemicals like Teflon cookware will.)
Beat 6 egg whites until stiff peaks form – a hand mixer on high works well. Really beat the whites until the peaks are VERY stiff. If you don’t beat them enough, they’ll collapse when you add the whey and egg yolks, and you’ll end up with a Styrofoam-like concoction. Yuck.
Add ½ cup of  Bulletproof Collagen Protein and the 6 yolks. Blend gently on low just until fully incorporated. The batter will be fluffy.
Pour batter into prepared dish and place in oven.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool completely. The loaf will sink to a normal height.
Once fully cooled, release from dish, slice and serve.
Leftovers will keep in the fridge for a few1 days.
Reheating recommendation: Heat a skillet to medium-high and add ghee or grass-fed butter, sear bread slices in skillet until lightly toasted on each side, about 30 seconds per side. Do not overheat.
Use heat-stable collagen over whey protein, and keep in mind that oxidized cholesterol from the cooked egg yolks can cause a little inflammation, so don’t eat this every day. Stick to every few days, if you can control yourself. 😉

This recipe was adapted from “The Ketogenic Cookbook” by Jimmy Moore and Maria Emmerich.

8 Of The Best Low Carb & Keto Soups You Should Be Eating

8 paleo, keto, grain-free, dairy-free and low carb soup recipes that the whole family will love, regardless of their eating style. Plus, a new recipe for Keto Fat Bomb Hamburger Soup.
There are few things that I love more than a warm bowl of keto soup on a cold day. If approached correctly (no need to confuse “correctly” with taking oodles of time out of your day), soups can deliver some serious keto nutrients, effortlessly.
The problem with conventional soups – think: the creamed soup at that cafe you really love, is that many of them hide some pretty funky (nasty) ingredients. Vegetable oils (increases inflammation), low-quality dairy (encourages disaster pants situations), starches (gives you the nasty sugar lows followed by insatiable hunger), the list goes on.
CREATE A HEALTHY + HOT BODY… FOR LIFEMaking healthy, low carb, keto soup that won’t sap your energy is easy – a couple of fresh ingredients, a blender, stove top, that’s it. Don’t have a blender? That’s okay. Let’s not get too fancy here.
8 of The Best Low Carb Soups You Should Be Eating #keto #lowcarb #paleoThe first key to making healthy, keto soup is in the ingredients. The Environmental Working Group classified common soup ingredients like bell peppers, kale, carrots, summer squash, tomatoes, mushrooms, cauliflower and onions as being the most pesticide rich crops in North America. In this case “rich” is not a good thing. If your keto soup has any of these ingredients, go organic.
And, choosing grass-fed (and finished!) red meat goes a long way in providing your body with omega-3 rice fats, vitamins D, K and more carotene than an equal amount of carrots. For chicken, opt for soy-free, corn-free, pasture raised chicken whenever you can.
The second key to making a healthy, keto soup is in the preparation. Burned or blackened vegetables or meats cause havoc in your body. In fact, charred food has the same carcinogenic compounds as cigarette smoke! There’s no need to over-cook your healthy, keto soup ingredients. Cook until firm-tender and dig in! You’ll get the most nutrients this way.
Vegan Low Carb Cream of Tomato Soup #keto #lowcarb #paleo
5-Minute Vegan Keto Cream of Tomato Soup: Macadamia nuts are what makes this soup so creamy and delicious. Made of raw, keto ingredients and blended, many of the nutrients in this soup are left in tact. Served best with a side of Homemade Keto Thyme and Onion Crackers.
Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup #keto #lowcarb #paleo
Vegan Keto Cream of Broccoli Soup: My husband came up with the idea of using blended cauliflower as a base for keto soup. Brilliant man he is. The recipe for this low carb, keto soup couldn’t be simpler. Just a couple of keto ingredients, all whole food-based.
Pump Up Your Greens Soup #keto #lowcarb #paleo
Pump Up Your Greens Keto Creamed Soup: This keto soup has everything you need to stay hydrated, fueled and on top of your game. Luscious greens blended with health-promoting fats. It’s health, in a bowl.
Dairy-free Cream of Mushroom Soup #keto #lowcarb #paleo
Vegan, Grain-free, and Keto Cream of Mushroom Soup: There’s no cream in this keto mushroom soup! Completely safe for practically everyone. Unless of course you can’t do mushrooms…
Roasted Garlic Soup #keto #lowcarb #paleo
Keto Roasted Garlic Soup: Another dairy-free cream keto soup for the books. With just 11 grams of carbs per bowl, you can rest easy knowing that the healthy fats you’re pumping in your body will go to good use. Amp up the nutrient value by using homemade beef broth in place of vegetable broth.
Rutabaga Greens Stew #keto #lowcarb #paleo
Rutabaga Greens Stew: More greens! If one of your 2015 goals is to eat more greens, this stew has you covered. You won’t even taste the sea vegetables. Sounds scary? I promise it isn’t. The rutabagas add crunch without the potato sugar-high, you’ll be in keto stew loving heaven.
Low Carb Gazpacho #keto #lowcarb #paleo
Gazpacho: If fresh is the name of your game, this soup is your kinda party. Made with raw ingredients, this vegetable-based soup is great on its own, or used as a meat marinade. Yes, I just suggested you soak your meats in this soup!
Fat Bomb Hamburger Soup #keto #lowcarb #paleoKeto Fat Bomb Hamburger Soup (recipe below): I created this keto recipe a couple of months ago, before I underwent surgery (it’s all good, I’m fine!). I’m convinced that the high concentration of fats paired with the collagen from the homemade beef stock was the catalyst for my phenomenally fast recovery.

I used red palm oil in this keto soup recipe. It’s another healthy saturated fat, my favorite saturated fat for roasted keto vegetables.
Fat Bomb Roasted Vegetable Hamburger Soup-3914
As I mentioned above, be sure to use grass-fed and finished ground beef in this keto recipe. The fats are highly nutritious. If you can’t get your paws on grass-fed beef, replace the regular ground beef in this keto recipe with lean. Animal fat holds toxins. If you’re eating conventional meat, there will be toxins in its fat.

I added a bit of extra homemade grass-fed tallow to the keto mix… you can do that as well, especially if you use a leaner meat.

My homemade beef stock is very thick and has oil on the top. I threw it ALL in there.

Once the meat is cooked, spices can be added.

The brilliantly golden roasted vegetables are best added into the soup at the very end, for extra crunch!

The Secret Step

The secret step in this recipe that takes this bread from good to great is the separation of the eggs. You’re going to want to separate the yolks and the whites. The reason for this is that we’re going to whip the egg whites until they are fluffy. We’re looking for soft peaks. This will add some volume to the otherwise dense bread. Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with using almond flour. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.
What makes this the best keto bread recipe you’re likely to find is the fact that you can use it the same way you use actual bread. Sounds crazy right? If you search for keto bread on pinterest, or the internet you’ll find a different recipe for everything you might want to make. Want to make french toast? sandwiches? croutons? avocado toast?

Fiber: 0.9g
Net Carbs: 1.35g

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 Cup Almond Flour we get ours on amazon
  • 6 Large eggs Separated
  • 4 tbsp Butter melted
  • 3 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar You can omit this. It only slightly improves the bread.
  • 1 pinch salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.
  3. In a food processor combine the egg yolks, butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined. This will be a lumpy thick dough until the whites are added.
  4. Add the beaten egg whites to the mixture and further process. Be careful not to over mix! Once the whites are incorporated stop mixing. (If you do not have a food processor you can use a blender. You can try by hand but it might be tough to pull off)
  5. Pour mixture into a buttered 8×4 loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure the bread is cooked through. Enjoy! 1 loaf makes 20 slices.
