90 Second Keto Bread. A super easy to make, deliciously cheesy and low carb bread for burgers, sandwiches and more. Guilt free indulgence!

This post was originally published on June 9, 2018 and has been updated with fresh content and images, though the recipe has stayed perfectly the same.

It’s been a year and a half since I first published this 90 Second Keto Bread, and it is still my most used recipe. I am always on the move with busy kids and running the household, never mind all of Mama Bear’s Cookbook, so am always in need of quick meals.

Breakfast sandwiches are among my favorite ways to start the day and sandwiches and burgers are a house staple. I hope you love this 90 Second Keto Bread as much as we do!

  • almond flour
  • parmesan cheese
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • sea salt
  • onion powder
  • baking powder
  • an egg
  • olive oil
  • unsalted butter

90 Second Keto Bread Recipe

In a microwave safe dish combine the almond flour with parmesan, shredded cheddar, sea salt, onion powder and baking powder.

Whisk in the egg and oil until fully combined.

Microwave for 90 seconds. It will have puffed up in the microwave and look like a spongy egg creation!

Heat the butter in a skillet on medium high. Cool the bread for a minute or two and then pop it out of the dish. Cut the 90 Second Keto Bread in half, horizontally, to form two thinner bread slices. 

Once the butter in the skillet is hot, add the bread slices and fry until nice and toasty. Flip the bread slices over and fry until the other sides are toasty as well.

Enjoy as toast, burger bun or sandwich bread.

Expert Tips

  1. Whisk the mixture well enough so that the egg is fully beaten and combined well with the other ingredients.
  2. If the egg is not fully cooked after the 90 seconds in the microwave, cook for an additional 10 seconds in the microwave.
  3. Cool the bread just long enough to be able to work with it without getting burned – it will be very hot right from the microwave.
  4. Be sure the skillet and butter are hot when the bread is added, this will give the bread a nice toasty color and texture.

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

    1. Aleta says:

      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!

  3. cookie pusher says:

    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.

    1. Aleta says:

      Wow thanks for this excellent comment! It’s great to know it would still work well with coconut flour 🙂

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 😀

    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.

    1. Aleta says:

      Yay! You’re welcome!

  14. Aleta says:

    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.

    1. Aleta says:

      He will be excited then! I love being able to have a burger without cheating!

    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!

    1. Aleta says:

      Thanks Michele!! 😀 There are definitely a lot of things you could do with this bread! I love how versatile it is!

  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!

    1. Aleta says:

      Thanks Ashley, I much prefer this bread for sandwiches and burgers compared to wheat buns!

  19. Frog says:

    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!

    1. Aleta says:

      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 🙂

    2. Aleta says:

      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. rachinjh says:

    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!

    1. Aleta says:

      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!

  21. Carla Rounds says:

    Sounds delish! Can’t wait to try it!

    1. Aleta says:

      Let me know what you think! 🙂

  22. Carla Rounds says:

    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 ?

    1. Aleta says:

      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. Carla Rounds says:

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

    1. Aleta says:

      I appreciate you asking! Let me know how it turns out!

  24. Tootie McPherson says:

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

    1. Aleta says:

      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. Margaret says:

    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.

    1. Aleta says:

      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⭐️

    1. Daphney says:

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

      1. Aleta says:

        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!

    1. Aleta says:

      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!

    I came across this recipe while looking for keto soup suggestions. I made it while my soup simmers. It’s really good. I hope I have enough left to accompany the soup. I keep pinching off pieces while the soup is finishing. This is so much easier than other recipes I’ve tried. I used Bob Mills Paleo baking flour instead of almond flour because that’s what I already had on hand. I can’t wait to make more.

    1. Aleta says:

      Hey Daphne! I’m so happy you loved the bread so much!

  30. Cyndi Burgess says:

    I just made and ate the 00 second bread it was actually pretty good. I was just wondering it was kind of dry do you have any suggestions to make it a little more moist?

    1. Aleta says:

      Though I have never tried, you could try adding a splash of unsweetened almond milk?

    I am not in a keto diet, but I am doing CrossFit and I am eating much healthier. Since I began this journey, I have not purchased bread. I made this yesterday; huge fan. Ate it with fried eggs. It was very tasty. Today I made a grilled cheese and grilled onion sandwich with it. Oh my word!! It is fantabulous! I am having so much fun experimenting with my new found healthier eating lifestyle. Thanks so much for this recipe!! Love it!!

    1. Aleta says:

      I am so glad to hear you liked it to much! Yum, love grilled cheese!

    I have been on a keto diet for a month and I have really missed bread. Bread is my favorite. I decided to try your recipe and I absolutely LOVE it! Now I can have cheeseburgers, grilled cheese and toast with my eggs. Thank you so much!!

    1. Aleta says:

      Hey Dave, I am so happy to hear! There’s nothing like a big ol’ burger with the bun!

  36. Tracy Pettie says:

    about to try this recipe for keto bread. Serving size is 1 bread. Is that top and bottom both?

    1. Aleta says:

      The nutrition facts are for both the top and bottom slice ☺️ Enjoy!

  37. Jan says:

    I’m allergic to almonds. Can this be made with coconut flour?

    1. Aleta says:

      Hey Jan, unfortunately coconut flour cannot be subbed for almond flour because coconut flour requires much more liquid. Here is a recipe from HealthyRecipesBlog you can try 🙂 I just recommend frying the bread in a hot skillet, with butter, after it has been sliced in half, so get that nice crisp edge.

  38. Stephanie says:

    Absolutely delicious, I used seasoned salt instead of the onion powder… and just doubled up on shredded cheese since I didn’t have Parmesan. I let this bread sit out on the counter for a little while and it dried out, so it really took on the texture of real bread. So thankful for this recipe!!❤️

    1. Aleta says:

      I am so glad to hear you love this bread Stephanie!

    2. TH says:

      For those who might want a sweet version: I omitted the onion powder and added a some sweetener and a shake of cinnamon in the batter before I microwaved it. After frying, I topped each half with a bit more cinnamon and sweetener. Delicious! Thx!

      1. Aleta says:

        That sounds amazing! Thanks for your spin on it 🙂

  39. Leney says:

    Tried for the first time today. I used it to make a tuna patty melt! Delicious lunch!

      How do you keep the left over Keto bread. Love the recipe. Delicious. Tried your tune recipe as well.

      1. Aleta says:

        So glad you like it! Personally I would freeze leftover breads. Pack them with wax paper (or parchment) in between each slice, then pack them into freezer bags. They are super easy to just pop into the toaster to heat back up 🙂

  46. Kate grey says:

    I love this recipe, but rather than fry the bread, I broil it. Gives it a great crispy topping without frying. Also, make it garlic flavoured instead of onion. Great to experiment with flavours 9f bith spices and cheese.

      I’m glad you liked it Kate 🙂

    I enjoyed the speed of cooking this bread, loved the texture but sadly the cheeses made it so salty for me, maybe because i havent eaten so much salt lately. Apart from that it was perfect.

    Dynamite! this is a great, simple Keto Bread recipe. I did use an “OG” spice that I had made previously (onion powder and garlic powder) but these are wonderful. So simple even a caveman like me can do it. 🙂

    1. Aleta says:

      HA! I am so glad to hear you like it so much Chris 🙂 The garlic and onion combo would be excellent – nice choice!

  49. Rachel Bergin says:

    Can you freeze these for use later.

    1. Aleta says:

      you bet 🙂

  50. Maria M. says:

    I rarely ever leave comments about recipes but I have to say this recipe is PURE genius.

    I followed the recipe exactly to make a tuna melt and it was absolutely perfect. The next day I wanted to make a low carb pizza so I subbed the cheddar for mozzarella, and the parmesan for pecorino. Instead of onion powder, I cracked some Italian herbs in the dough. It made a 6” dough and instead of pan frying in butter, I used olive oil. Transferred to a baking pan, added my toppings, and broiled for a couple of minutes. Quick and tasty!

    1. Aleta says:

      Maria, that all sounds amazing! I’m so glad it all worked out well for – I love the idea for a small pizza crust!
