How to Make Keto Egg Loaf
Here’s everything that you’ll need to know in order to whip up this fluffy and soft keto bread recipe:
- Preheat the oven. Preheat your oven to 350℉.
- Prepare the baking pan. Line an 8×4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
- Prepare the flour mixture. Add the coconut flour and baking powder to a bowl and mix to combine. Set aside.
- Beat. Use the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to beat the eggs and a low carb sweetener together for about 3-5 minutes, or until pale and fluffy.

2 Awesome Benefits of a Keto Egg Loaf vs. Regular Bread
Here are 2 great reasons why this keto egg loaf is better for your health than traditional grain-based bread options:
- 100% gluten and grain-free. Since you’ll only be using keto approved whole food ingredients when making low carb egg loaf recipes, you can rest assured knowing that your egg loaf will end up being a 100% gluten and grain-free alternative.
- Packing plenty of protein and dietary fat. This particular egg loaf recipe calls for a whopping 8 large eggs, which adds an impressive amount of protein content to the resulting egg loaf. On top of that, they also provide a solid amount of dietary fat, including heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Can I Toast Keto Egg Loaf?
You can absolutely toast your keto egg loaf.
While I prefer to enjoy mine untoasted in order to preserve that soft and fluffy texture, you can easily fire the egg loaf into a toaster oven if you want to enjoy a tasty low carb toasted meal.
Another great option that you can use your egg loaf for is making keto-friendly French toast as well.
