Keto Bread Recipe

Should we forget about bread entirely and let newcomers take its beloved place? Let’s make some keto bread to find it out!

Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-2-SunCakeMomGetting rid of something entirely is much easier than having the willpower not to have it every time we get close proximity to it.

Just think about that how easy is not to turn into the chocolate isles at all, comparing to not picking up anything from those shelves. We may be clearly able to recall the way to those isles. The last turn that leads us the realm where we can buy happiness, is burning into our mind quite quickly, no matter how many times we change shops.

Are carbs evil?

But the thrill of these turns is nothing compared to the agony we face once there. Probably many of us have been in a situation where time and space collapsed around us, holding a debate over a couple of chocolate bars future in our hands. How many lost battles have we fought there until we realized that some battles aren’t worth fighting, yet we can still win the war?

Even if we decide not to go that way anymore, our heart beats a little bit faster and sweet memories are stirred up when we glimpse at those isles. The familiar shapes and colors are putting a slight curve at the end of our lips, just like when we drive past the house of our teenage crush with whom we were a perfect match.

It seems like overly obsessive relations didn’t mean to last or if they do, they have adverse effect on our health either mentally or physically.

Why do we put on weight?

Unfortunately though, it seems we are quite prone to get into trouble if things are related to satisfy our basic needs like food, reproduction. It would be easy to blame on our genes and accuse nature’s twisted humor of making us susceptible to addiction, but current science hasn’t found a direct link between addiction and genetics yet.

Although, there is a study that found a gene that could be responsible for our overly obsessive behavior in response to environmental stress, but nothing is set into stone on the genetic level.

So, it seems that we can only blame our evolutionary past about overeating, our ancestors for inventing farming and our parents for getting us hooked onto sugar. It’s a pity that we couldn’t be where we are now without all of those things, except maybe sugar.

Overeating and putting on weight had its evolutionary advantage in climates where accessibility to food were scarce in certain months of the year while it was abundant in others. Farming lands tried to solve that inequality of the food supply but nothing serious really happened until we started treating sugar as part of our meal, instead of a luxury.

Do carbs rule the world?

Once we got hooked onto sugar, there was no turning back. We changed ideas, societies and the world to produce and able to consume at scale. Nowadays sugar is so predominant in our food that quitting it feels rolling back the wheel of time to pre-cultural times.

We have it in our drinks, meat and even in our bread. Taking it out of our diet not only means that we have to cook from scratch but also ensure that our ingredients aren’t soaked in it either.

Of course, we can step up our game and take things even further, banning not just sugar but all that was farming about, the carbs. Afterall the best approach to a new life is leaving the old one behind but it seems that there are some memories that couldn’t stop clinging to our heart.

Probably we have to kiss goodbye to Nutella spread on bread as we have known it and not because we can’t make sugar or carbs free bread or hazelnut spread but rather because Nutella is not one.

Is keto bread the same as wheat bread?

Making low carb keto bread is way easier than making normal bread. Especially if we have ever set up on a quest of making the perfect sourdough bread. Although making a keto bread from keto ingredients won’t produce the bread we used to love, we can achieve pretty decent texture with very little effort.

The real downside of keto bread isn’t their texture though, but us. The pleasure to bite into a piece of carb that is provided to our brain by a dopamine rush, the very thing we are so into, wheat is missing from bread low in carbs. It doesn’t matter how spongy, light, dense or perfect our bread will be, without carbs we soon realize that no food tastes the same.Keto hamburger recipe - SunCakeMom

  2. Warm water and mix in the vinegar. Alternatively vinegar can be substituted with double amount of lemon juice. Mind not to heat the water above 140°F / 60°C as that temperature activates the baking powder. With a hand mixer gradually mix the water with the dry ingredients.Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-Process-4-SunCakeMom
  3. Mix in the egg whites as well. Don’t get scared of the soft texture. It supposed to be like somewhat sticky slime. Get a bowl of water close to us will allow to wet our hands after each shaping each bun.Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-Process-6-SunCakeMom
  4. Shape the bread. They will double in size but not much in length as width. Those who got used to gluten filled baking will notice that even though the dough is soft, it doesn’t stick nearly as much to our hands as we used to. It’s completely manageable. If a bread tin is available just use that.Keto-hot-dog-bun-recipe-Process-7-SunCakeMom
  5. Sprinkle Sesame seed on top if desired.Keto garlic bread recipe - SunCakeMom
