It can be hard to find low carb recipes that align with those drool-worthy loaves we’re all used to… but this loaf is fluffy, soft and has the perfect crumb and texture!
It’s one of those almond flour recipes that’ll transform your life – from sandwiches to healthy snacks, this bread will become your go-to recipe! Anddd, it’s SO easy. Let’s get started!
This almond flour bread recipe is the ideal loaf for any meal you have planned.

- Basic ingredients that are inexpensive and easy to find!

You won’t even believe how effortless this almond bread is. One bowl, one bread pan, one hour, and you’re done! The hardest part is waiting for it to cool!
There are a couple of important ingredients that help keep this almond flour bread recipe keto and low carb…
Almond Flour – It’s low in carbs, and has a slightly sweet (ala almonds) taste that’s perfect for bread. A finer grain is going to give you the melt in your mouth crumb you’re looking for. My favorite brands are Bob’s Red Mill or Trader Joes.
Psyllium husk – This important fiber helps gluten-free flours to bind together, giving it structure and the fluff you long for in a loaf of bread.
The NOW brand produces the best results, and I STRONGLY recommend you use it! Different brands of psyllium husk vary in the amount of water they absorb. They can also give recipes a blue-ish purple tint. I haven’t experienced either of these issues with NOW psyllium husk!
Tools To Make
I love how easy this almond flour bread recipe is. You’ll only need a few tools:
- A bowl for mixing.
- Parchment paper for the pan.
- And, a bread pan! You can use glass or metal, you’ll just want to lower the temp by 25 degrees for glass.
This almond flour bread recipe is SO scrumptious, I don’t think you’ll have any leftover! But, I guess, in the hypothetical argument that there are some slices left, just place them in an airtight container in the fridge.
Can You Freeze This?
You can totally freeze this bread, which is especially helpful if you want to make several loaves at a time. Just slice, wrap well in layers of plastic wrap, toss in a large ziplock and store. Take out slices as you need them, let them thaw or toast them!
You’re gonna fall in love with how versatile this almond flour bread recipe is!
How Can I Serve This Bread?
This almond loaf has a mild flavor, good texture, it slices well, and is just perfect as a low carb sandwich bread. For burgers, you can use this slight variation in almond flour hamburger buns or maybe try these low carb hamburger buns.
Psst — For another great sandwich or breakfast option, try this delicious and easy low carb bagel recipe.
How Can I Make This More Nutritious?
I love that this low carb almond flour bread recipe is filled with such clean ingredients. Although it’s NOT a vegan almond flour bread recipe (due to the added eggs), it’s a great vehicle to pack more nutrients in, especially with the toppings…
I like to add some veggies into the mix by serving a slice with mashed avocado (low carb avocado toast anyone?) or making a veggie grilled cheese (sauteed bell peppers and onions with fresh arugula are some of my faves to add here!).
If you’d prefer a loaf that’s loaded with nutrition, opt for this superfood cauliflower bread, sweet and easy low carb banana bread, or this vitamin-filled low carb zucchini bread!
Can I Add Pumpkin To This Recipe?
You know I love a good healthy pumpkin bread recipe, especially since pumpkin is one of my FAVORITE superfoods! However, throwing pumpkin into this recipe would throw our liquid to solid ratio out of whack…
That said, if low carb pumpkin bread is what you’re craving, check out this recipe instead!
Can I Add Toppings To This Bread?
Like toppings on your bread? Such as a crunch, or little something sweet?
Sprinkle a handful of your favorite nuts and seeds on top, for a delicious seed bread with just the right amount of crunch. Or for a sweet version, add some erythritol into the mix, and top it with your favorite low carb frosting — low carb cinnamon rolls bread anyone?!
Can I Turn This Into Muffins?
Muffins are such a great low carb breakfast or snack!
This recipe can be poured into a muffin tin for savory grab and go muffins (due to the consistency of this recipe, they’ll taste more like rolls than low carb english muffins).

Almond Flour Bread
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a bread pan with a parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
- Stir in the eggs and olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and herbs (if using).
- Then add the warm water. Dough will look more "wet" than a traditional dough.
- Set the bread aside for 5 minutes to allow the psyllium husk to absorb the water.
- Transfer the batter to prepared bread pan.
- Bake for 45-55 minutes. The bread is done when a butter knife inserted in the center comes out clean, and the top is firm and crust-like.
- Allow the bread to cool before removing from the pan and slicing.
