If there’s one clear message about the Ketogenic diet, it’s that you need to avoid carbs…big time. Enjoying less than 25 grams of carbs per day (which, btw – is about one dinner roll) is a challenge for many, and most definitely a period of adjustment as you enter into any low-carb lifestyle.
So what do most Keto-dieters miss the most?
However, there’s a loophole…and it takes only a few ingredients, a mug, and one minute in the microwave.
This must be low-carb heaven.
Upon first making it, you’ll be shocked at its dense bread-like texture, and how quickly you can whip it up when needed. It’s perfectly round in size, making it the perfect replacement for a breakfast sandwich English muffin, or a burger bun.
You might be wondering how the heck this even works…but with almond flour (finely ground almonds), an egg, oil, and some baking powder to help it rise – this is sliceable, hearty bread that you’re 100% allowed to enjoy on the keto diet. Not only is it low-carb, but it’s packed with healthy fats and proteins.
Ready to try it?
- 4 tbsp almond meal/flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- pinch of salt
- Add all the ingredients into your mug, and mix with a fork until well blended. The mixture will be very wet.
- Microwave on HIGH for 1 minutes. Tap the top to make sure it's fully cooked through. If it seems at all undercooked, return to the microwave for another 20-30 seconds.
- Turn mug upside down to release the bread, and let cool slightly before slicing.
- Enjoy immediately, or toast for a crispier texture. Serve alone, or as a sandwich bun!
