This easy 90 second keto bread is a life-saver for those moments when you NEED a sandwich and there's no low carb bread in the house. My microwave bread toasts well and has NO EGGY TASTE. It contains just 4 ingredients.
I love baking keto bread, which I slice and freeze. There's this low carb bread, my flaxseed bread with coconut flour and this popular almond flour bread.
The thing is, we all like bread here. And we always run out of it.
So, what to do when you want just ONE slice of crunchy, warm toast without having to bake an entire loaf?
Thankfully, with a microwave you can solve this dilemma quickly. Simply make this 90 second keto bread.
Even with mixing the ingredients, you'll be able to have this bread ready in 3 minutes.
🌟 Why You'll Love This Recipe
- Fluffy, soft texture - just like white toast
- 4 ingredients
- No eggy flavor
- Naturally gluten-free and dairy-free
- Keto friendly - only 1.6g net carbs
- Ready from scratch in 3 minutes
Here are the ingredients you'll need:
- Egg white - Using only the egg white and not the yolk means there is no eggy taste.
- Almond flour - I used regular almond flour. If you want to use SUPER FINE almond flour such as Bob's Red Mill, increase the amount of water to 1 tablespoon.
- Psyllium husk powder - Gives the bread a stronger texture, similar to whole-wheat bread. You can use flaxseed instead, or a pinch of xanthan gum.
- Baking powder
- Water - or use almond milk
See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
Note - By the time I had shot this picture, the baking powder had begun to fizz up (which is a good sign as it means it's fresh!). It might look like a lot, but it is the same amount as the psyllium powder.
For a flavor lift, add a pinch of salt to the batter.
For a savoury version, add a pinch of garlic powder or paprika. Or, add 1 teaspoon of grated parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast.
It's so simple to make a keto bread in the microwave. Here are the basic steps.
For detailed instructions, scroll down to the recipe card.
Step 1: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork.
Step 2: Fill the dough into a well-greased microwavable container. Spread well to ensure there are no large air bubbles.
I used melted butter to grease mine, but you could use coconut oil, avocado oil or even olive oil.
Step 3: After microwaving on high for 90 seconds, your single serving of "emergency toast" is done.
The bread shrinks a bit and comes off the edges so it's easy to release from the container.
At this point, the bread is soft and looks a bit pale. Don't let this discourage you.
Image 4 and 5 show the bread from both sides. As you can see, it has a fluffy, light texture.
And once you toast, grill or pan-fry your Keto toast, it looks pretty, too!
Microwave timing: I have made this recipe with several microwaves over the years. 90 seconds always seems to be the perfect cook time.
However, in your microwave it may need less or more. Check after 75 seconds and see if it is cooked. Just don't overcook it or the bread will dry out.
Container: I used a 5 x 5 inch glass dish, which produced 1 large slice of Keto toast. I made another portion using a 4 x 3 tupperware container, which I then sliced in two.
You could even use a mug and cut your bread into 3 smaller, round slices.
If you prefer to try this recipe with coconut flour, use 1 ½ tablespoon instead of the 3 tablespoons almond flour. Coconut flour absorbs more liquid than almond flour. I also recommend to increase the amount of water to 1 tablespoon.
Yes, you CAN make this recipe with a whole egg. This way you get a healthy golden colour even before toasting. The bread will taste a little eggy this way. I personally don't mind it, but some people don't like it.
Yes. In my many test runs to get the recipe just right, I have also made a version omitting the psyllium. As you can see, this bread is quite versatile!
I make a keto mayonnaise.
Yes. Bake it at 180C or 350F for around 12 minutes.
Store the bread in an airtight container in the fridge for up 3 days. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months. Re-heat it in the toaster.
I love 90 second keto bread toasted and then spread with butter and sugar free strawberry jam.
But, it tastes great with any topping, from sweet to savoury.
Often, I make grilled cheese with it. For this, I gently fry the bread in butter over a low heat. I add some garlic powder - but paprika would also give extra flavour.
Almond flour burns quicker than regular wheat flour. Take your time and keep the lid on so the cheese can melt without the bread burning!
You can also use it to make my 10 minute keto French toast.

This is awesome. I toasted in a sandwich toaster, buttered it, addded sliced tomatoes and put melted cheese on top - was delicious!!
I love all your recipes, thankyou for sharing and making my low carb lifestyle so easy!
I've made This recipe multiple times now, comes out great baked in an oven, and it's become my favorite Keto quick bread option, even over and above those expensive store-bought loaves. I've made it two different ways. One with blanched almond flour and one with the natural whole almond flour, both Bob's Red Mill. Try it, it's super easy and delicious!
Hi Katrin, I've made this bread a couple of times since you first posted it. First time I toasted it in my air oven. The second time I was in hurry so I just sliced it and used it for egg salad sandwich. It was good. I like it better than recipes with the whole egg.
Thanks for sharing it. I want to try some of your coconut flour recipes, but I can't bake now . But I plan to try some as soon as I feel better. Everything looks so good in your pictures. I also want to make your muesli recipe. Sounds easy and delicious. Well I could go on and on about everything I want to try but just know I so much appreciate your hard word in developing these recipes and your emails are so informative. Thank you.
Very good, fried in butter with sliced cheese. Thank you for the recipe.
