Prep time 15 minutes

Cook time 25 minutes

Makes 10 slices


70g Ground flaxseed

40g Oat Fibre

190g Vital Wheat Gluten

½ tsp Xanthum Gum

1 tsp Salt

240ml Warm Water

1 tbsp Instant Yeast

1 tsp Honey

2 Eggs

30g Butter

Preparation Method

  1. Add all dry ingredients to mixing bowl except for the yeast and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Add warm water to a measuring jug and leave to cool until it reaches a temperature of 50-55°C. Please note – this can be done before you begin making the recipe.
  3. When the water has reached the desired temperature, add the yeast to the warm water and stir.
  4. Add the honey to the measuring jug of yeast and water and mix well, until all of the honey has dissolved.
  5. Crack the eggs into a separate bowl and give them a quick whisk.
  6. Heat the butter in the microwave until just softened unless it is already at room temperature.
  7. Add the yeast and honey mixture to a mixing bowl, with the eggs, butter and dry ingredients. Knead well in the bowl using your hands.
  8. Remove the dough from the bowl then place in a bread tin and cover loosely with plastic wrap.
  9. Heat a mug of water in the microwave for a couple of minutes until boiling to create a warm environment. This is to create a moist environment for your keto bread to rise.
  10. Place the bread in the microwave, shutting the door quickly and leave it to rise for 2-2 ½ hours. Replace the warm water every 10 minutes with fresh boiling water from the kettle, to keep a nice moist environment for the bread.
  11. Place the bread in a preheated oven at 190°C for 25 minutes.
  12. Remove the bread from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack before slicing.
