A keto seed bread baked with 3 types of seeds gives you a slice of bread with a crunch and texture. High in fibre and low in carbs at only 3g net carbs a slice.
This keto bread is baked with coconut flour and psyllium husk powder which makes a good low carb version of bread. The psyllium husk powder replaces the gluten. Add the apple cider creating a bit of a lift to the mixture too.
I have a nut bread recipe in the archives but wanted a bread just with seeds. The fact that I only had seeds in the cupboard had no correlation on this baking decision at all…. Nor the fact that I came across a huge packet of pumpkin seeds at a reasonable price.
The seeds add such a great crunch to the bread, they take what could be a bland keto bread (they can be at times) to a hearty slice. I enjoyed this sliced and slathered with butter. Simple and tasty. Sliced and toasted, this keto seed bread is great for breakfast too.
You could happily use this keto bread mixture to make bread rolls. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my baking list. It should make about 6 rolls.
Chia seeds were added to the pumpkin and sunflower seeds as although they are tiny, there are a powerhouse of nutrients and fibre. Adding seeds to your keto bread is a way of pushing up the nutrition and antioxidants in your food. As well as enjoying a satisfying crunch!
