Keto Walnut Bread

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.

A healthy low carb bread with walnuts

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.

Walnut Benefits

  • 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.

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup boiling water


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees
  • Place the coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husk powder and salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the oil and eggs and blend well until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar and mix well.
  • Add the chopped walnuts to the bread and mix.
  • Gently add the water, a bit at time and stir into the mixture (you may not need it all).
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Using your hands, make a large ball of the dough (I find keeping my hands wet helps with the sticky dough).
  • Place the dough on the parchment paper lined baking tray.
  • Score the top to make a pattern (optional but looks more rustic)
  • Bake for 35 -40 minutes until golden and firm.
  • Slice, eat and enjoy!

    Can I leave the walnuts? I basically want to be able to have the bread with veggies/meat, walnuts might not go well with them.

    Very tasty….. definitely better the next day! Reminds me of a soft biscotti. I used 2 tablespoons of ground chia seeds (I pulsed them myself) instead of the psyllium husk and its delicious! I like my slices warm with butter and honey 😍

    Also, because I’m anal, my loaf weighed 560 grams. Making each slice or serving 56 grams. In case anyone was curious.

    Could you add cinnamon to make it more like a sweet bread when I add my slab of butter? to still be keto friendly?
    I might have left mine in the oven too long but it tastes off……

    Often when I bake, I sub cashew milk for water because it usually tastes better. I’m tempted here. Would there be a problem? Gah! Can’t wait to try this either way. Thank you so much!

      Can’t see that it would hurt the recipe as it’s a heavy rustic style bread.

    What is psyllium husk?
    Is there a replacement for this ingredient?

    This recipe looks delish…can I just leave the psyllium husk out?
