This keto walnut bread is a delicious low carb bread packed full of walnuts. Sliced it has a chewy and nutty texture. A healthy low carb bread that is easy to make and a great addition to a cheeseboard. Or simply slice and toast for a breakfast packed full of nutrition.
This low carb walnut bread is a variation on my rosemary and olive bread which does not require a pan to bake, keeping it “rustic”. If you wanted a neater loaf of bread, then by all means spoon the mixture into a loaf tin and bake away! At only 3g net carbs a slice you can enjoy this keto walnut in any shape! Even in small bread roll format.
This bread was inspired by a new local bakery in one of the hotels. They have a Swiss baker which is rare on the island and I was curious about what type of breads that they had and whether I could adapt any to be low carb. My greedy eye found walnut bread and since I had a large bag of walnuts at home, I had to try it.
- Walnuts are packed full of beneficial vitamins and minerals.
- They are high in protein, great for fibre and a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids.
- Walnuts contain a high amount of manganese and magnesium, both great for the bones.
The walnut bread mixture is a bit on the heavy side, but I wanted to be able to make a pattern on the top of the loaf to make it more like a rustic, nutty bread. I think the next time I would separate the eggs and whisk up the egg whites to give the bread a bit more volume. However, any bread with nuts is going to be on the heavy side.
Sliced and served with cheese this is a delicious nutty bread. Try it toasted with eggs too! You could add herbs to this low carb bread too. Thyme and rosemary would work wonderfully.
