90 Second Keto Bread Recipe

In a microwave safe dish combine almond flour, parmesan, shredded cheddar, salt, garlic powder, baking powder, egg, oil and whisk until fully combined. Microwave for 90 seconds. It will have puffed up in the microwave and look like a spongy egg creation!

Heat butter in a skillet on medium high. Allow ‘bread’ to cool for 2 minutes, then cut in half to form two thinner bread slices. Fry in a skillet until the bread is nice and toasty! Cool for a couple minutes before using for burgers or sandwiches.

Where to find almond flour

You can find almond flour in any grocery store. In my local grocery store it hangs around with other specialty items like spelt flour or coconut flour. I like to buy Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Almond Flour because it’s gluten-free and non-GMO. It can be pretty pricey but it goes a long way.

Can’t find it? You can buy it from amazon! They even have the resealable bag which is great because almond flour needs to be sealed tightly in between each use so that it’s life lasts longer.

How to make a 90 Second Keto Bread without a microwave

Don’t have a microwave? I totally get it. I went years without one, swore up and down I would never own one, until my then-teenage step son almost burnt the house down a couple of times while leaving the oven on at night, forgetting he had food cooking.. 🤨

Needless to say, his oven privileges were gone, so we got a microwave so that he could at least heat up soup or anything else he needed.

So began my slow descent into microwave land.

Now I use it all the time for melting butter, chocolate, cheese.. perhaps reheating a meal here or there..

But not everyone has one! Here is how to make this bread in the oven:

Heat the oven to 350° and spray the same size glass container with spray oil. Fill the oven safe container with the bread contents and bake for 15 minutes, until the egg is cooked all the way through.

Cool for a few minutes before slicing in half and frying in hot butter til crisp.

    Have you had any luck with using coconut flour instead of almond?

    • Hey Amy! I have not used coconut flour, no, but have seen some recipes that use coconut flour. I know you cannot directly replace almond flour with coconut flour, but am not sure what the exact measurements would be, sorry!

    This was awesome! Have you made a scaled up version of this recipe for a loaf? I would love to include this in my meal prep!

    • Hey Dustin I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I eat one of these almost every day 😅 but have not got around to trying it load style yet! My husband. Is gluten free and also loves these, so would be great to have a loaf rather than constantly making singles! Thanks for the idea 😆

  3. yes you can use this recipe with coconut flour, i use it all the time. coconut flour does add a sweeter flavor. just cut the flour to 1 tbsp coconut flour. i find in all my recipes there is a 3 to 1 difference . coconut flour in baking is alot courser , almond is finer. often i will use both for tastes effects. my husband is diabetic and i cut the grms alot of carbs.

  4. What are the nutritional fact about the 90 sec low carb bread?

    Eating Keto isn’t always easy. Today I looked longingly at a table full of sweets at work. I walked away, feeling a little sad. Then I found this recipe and it made my day! I will be making this constantly now 😀. Thank you

    • It is super tough sometimes, isn’t it? That takes some serious restraint to walk away, I hope you gave yourself a serious pat on the back, and I bet you feel super awesome for holding off! I make this recipe multiple times every single week, it has saved me countless times when I’ve been about to cave. I hope it does the same for you Rachel! Thanks for commenting 😀

    I <3 Keto breads. I'm excited to see this one especially. I was going through a lengthy baking process creaming cream cheese/butter/eggs. Now I have a quick option with ingredients that are a steadfast. Thanks!

    OMG..90 second keto bread? It’s amazing! I don’t follow the keto diet but one of my friend is, and right away I am sharing your link with her. Thanks for this amazing recipe.

  14. I love this recipe. I added 1/8 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder and used coconut oil instead. Put the slices in the toaster oven (on tray) on broil, approx 1.5 minutes each side. (I flipped with spatula). It was nicely toasted. Then awhile hot, I smeared some cream cheese on ’em and sprinkled ’em with some keto friendly cinnamon sugar.. YUMMY Dessert😊

    Thank you for the base recipe.. It’s perfect for experimenting with.

    • Whoa Kimberly you nailed it! I am actually drooling and cannot wait to try it myself! Sounds like a cinnamon roll, yum! Thanks so much for sharing this!! 😀

  15. The fella follows keto and always laments not having a bun for his burgers. I cant wait to try this the next time we make burgers.

    This is a brilliant keto recipe! I love how versatile it is! #winning

    I keep saying that I’m going to be eating healthier so this keto bread is going to be perfect for me. I gotta tell you, it looks so delicious that I can’t believe it could be healthy! I already have ideas about what I’m going to be putting on this bread. Thanks so much for sharing it! It’s going on my list!

  18. My husband did the keto diet for about a year and this would have been right up his alley while he was on it. We still enjoy low carb meals sometimes, and this bread looks so versatile that I may just give it a try!

  19. This looks amazing! Can it be accomplished without the use of a microwave? I saw the toaster oven option, not sure if she bypassed the microwave there… Appreciate the help!

    • I have not baked them in an oven before but have heard of people doing it with great success! Use the same dish, just make sure it’s oven safe, and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Just make sure the egg is cooked through before you pop it out of the dish to cut in half and fry til crisp 🙂

    • Just gave it a try and it totally works in the oven! Took 15 minutes at 350°. The bread didnt puff up as evenly as the microwave way, but you can just slice the top off for even frying if you wish 🙂

  20. Hey there- I know this is crazy, but I do not have a microwave!!!! Can I make it in my convection oven or any other idea? Major bread lover here, and this looks amazing!

    • It’s not crazy at all! I basically only use mine for melting butter, chocolate and cheese… and for making these keto breads! I’m always in a hurry for one so I love how quick they can be thrown together 🙂
      I just had another person ask today if they could be baked in the oven. I didn’t like not knowing the answer so i just gave it a try… I baked mine at 350° and it took 15 minutes. It didn’t puff up at evenly as the microwave version, so you may want to slice the top off so that it is more even, but it totally worked! I’ll add this into the post above 🙂
      Thanks for asking!

    Sounds delish! Can’t wait to try it!

  22. I couldn’t get mine really toasted. I was hoping for a good crunch. Is it possible that too much butter while frying could result in not so “ crunchy”. Lol. I’m so lame at cooking. Any suggestions ?

    • Lol oh goodness, I doubt you are lame at cooking! Did you heat the pan for a few minutes until it was super hot? If the pan wasn’t hot enough, the bread would have soaked up the butter which would result in a non toasty bread. We don’t want floppy untoasty bread, no thank you. So make sure your pan is super hot first, then toss in the butter so it’s sizzling right away, THEN add the bread and cook until crisp, flip and repeat 🙂 Let me know if that works please Carla!

  23. Ohhhhh, I did not do that. Lol. I will try that. Thanks so much! 🙂

    Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour in 90 sec keto bread

    • Hey Tootie! I personally have never made a 90 second bread using coconut flour. Coconut flour cannot be directly replaced with almond flour as it need much less quantity and more eggs to bake. Unfortunately I don’t have a recipe using coconut flour.. I will have to try to make a recipe using it one of these days!

  25. Can’t wait to try this. Has anyone made extras to store in fridge for a few days or in the freezer? I work 12 night shifts and often have no desire bring out the pots and pans while I’m in the middle of a work rotation.

    • Hey Margaret!
      You can absolutely make a bunch and freeze them. I recommend frying them until golden brown before cooling to refrigerate or freeze.
      If you freeze them, place them into a freezer ziploc bag with wax or parchment paper in between each slice to make it easy to just grab one or two slices.
      Toss them into the toaster to reheat if you like to bring back some life, but it’s not necessary, they don’t take much time to thaw.
      12 hour shifts are tough, these are a great pack n go lunch or an easy meal for after work. I hope you enjoy!

    Well, Keto killed my microwave. Made this bread to have with chicken burgers and the last one in and my microwave died.⚰️ Still these buns were outstanding!!! Finally a keto bread that holds together and tastes delicious. Such a great recipe, thank you⭐️

    • Oh nooooo too many keto breads for the microwave, how unfortunate! Just in case you need more sandwiches before you can replace/fix the microwave, they can be made in the oven as well! I added directions in the post 🙂 I’m so glad you love the recipe, I make this multiple times weekly and can’t imagine life without it! 😅 So sorry about the microwave! Thanks for the comment Jeannie 🙂

    • Hey, can you omit the “salty” ingredients to make a plain bread, say for pb&j sandwiches?

      • Hey Daphney! For a pb&J I would just omit the onion powder. You could, if you wanted, do 1/4 cup almond flour and leave out the parmesan cheese to make it less salty, but I personally like the touch of salt with peanut butter, especially because I buy peanut butter with no additives. Totally up to you!

    This recipe is legit. I just started Keto this week. I don’t love Keto. I just know it will help me drop weight fast before my vacation in a month. Found this on Pinterest and had to leave a rating because it’s delish. Thank you!

    • Hey Sara! Wow, I am so glad you loved it and really appreciate the feedback! I am biased but also think this recipe is legit 😛 I use it… more than I’d like to admit… lol… happy ketoing and have a great vaca!
