Flour-free Bread. Yes, for real.

This....this is simply one of the coolest recipes I've come across in keto.  Apparently, peanut butter can be made into bread.  Seriously!  I've always known these lovely little legumes were versatile, but bread?

Yes, they make some VERY nice bread.


1 cup peanut butter (natural is best, with as little sugar as possible)
3 eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vinegar
2 tsp stevia
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Blend peanut butter and eggs till smooth.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  
  • Pour into greased loaf pan and smooth the top.
  • Bake 30-40 minutes, till toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool before slicing.
Net carbs: 34 grams per LOAF.  Depending on how many slices you make, you're only looking at a few grams of carbs per slice.

I love to top these with LOTS of fresh butter; the bread is rather "dry" in texture, and the butter kind of mellows things.  More sweetener makes it more of a dessert type bread, but you need to add 1 gram of carbs for each tsp sweetener.  Less sweet, it doubles as a sandwich bread nicely.

  1. Just enjoyed my first taste. I came up with about 5 net carbs for 1/8 of a loaf. I gave it a little smear of creme fraiche on top; perfect!
