Kid-friendly Keto Bread
- cooking spray (we just line the loaf pan)
- 7 eggs, at room temperature
- ½ cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon xantham gum
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan and line tin with parchment paper.
2- Whisk eggs in a bowl until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add melted butter and olive oil; mix until well combined.
3- Combine almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt in a separate bowl; mix well. Add gradually to the egg mixture, mixing well until a thick batter is formed.
*Xanthum gum improves the texture. The brand we have is Bob's Red Mill which is sold in most grocery stores.
4- Pour batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
5- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes
*note: this bread contains NUTS - almond meal - and is therefore not appropriate for school lunches if your school is nut-free.
