I’ve been on a kick to find a good recipe for a keto-friendly bread. Cause…bread.
I’ve been eating gluten free for ages so I’m used to funky, subpar bread. But I miss even that. I do like a peanut butter sandwhich or something to hoist up my daily servings of eggs and cheese. I just need something functional that doesn’t taste terrible. My hopes are high, my standards are low, people.
I made a recipe called “oopsie bread” also known as cloud bread. It was a #fail. It’s basically eggs (beaten within in inch of their life) and cream cheese. It may be manipulated into taking on a slight resemblance to bread but it tastes like egg souffle.
I tried out another recipe that looked a bit more promising, this keto bread. I followed the recipe exactly, and it looked and held together like a quick bread. It looked really good. However, it was a bit bland with the exception of that egg flavor that really shines through. I could see it being really good as a sweet quick bread with a couple teaspoons of almond extract and 1/3 cup of my carb free sweetener. Or lemon extract and poppy seeds. You could even do muffins!
I was able to make a really great breakfast sandwich with it though.
I’m a bit obsessed with breakfast sandwiches. I’m a mid-western girl so I like a hearty meal. Please get that kale salad away from me. I lift weights, people.
I do think this recipe has promise, though I probably wouldn’t make it again without serious alterations. I’m going to keep looking for a plain bread I can use to make sandwiches and toast. When I find a decent recipe I’ll definitely let you all know!
So, today is Valentine’s Day! ❤
I wasn’t planning on doing anything, because it’s a Wednesday and school night, but a lovely friend offered to babysit. Tonight is definitely going to be my first official “cheat meal”. I plan on responsibly consuming some serious carbs and maybe (definitely) even some caramel-filled chocolates!
I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day!
