Hello Angie, the same happened here. The taste is great except the bread did not rise. It came out flat. Do I have to slice the load in the middle to get it to rise? I replaced the ghee with regular butter but everything else was the same. Also I read on a different site that if the eggs are not room temperature than that would definitely effect the rise of the bread. I took the cold eggs straight out of the fridge to get the egg whites. What do you think?
I tried this bread and on my first shot, it came out amazing and I didn’t even have a scale to weigh the measurements properly! I just used measuring cups. I ground up my psyllium husk (for all you Canadians, I used ‘Source of Life’ brand from my local health food store, product of BC) to a fine powder using my mini-food processor. Today I’m trying it out again but to my dismay I had only 2 cups of almond flour left so I decided to experiment and add 1/2 cup of coconut flour to the almond flour. I probably should have tweaked the other ingredients but I wasn’t sure how so I used the same amount of everything else. I know normally you have to double the eggs but I’m using both almond and coconut so we’ll see. It’s in the oven now. . .
If your blood sugar gets too high, then you may have Ketoacidosis. What happens is that the body does not have enough insulin to use the glucose cells, so it starts to break down fat and muscle for fuel. This causes ketones to enter the bloodstream and causes a pretty bad chemical imbalance. Ketones can also be found in your urine, which is an easy way to test. Signs of Diabetic Ketoacidosis are:
Dear butter.girl, I would love to try this as I too find almond meal pretty expensive to replenish my stock constantly not to mention I ‘d love to just try a new kind of healthy flour. I have tons of raw sunflower seeds in my pantry and was going to make my next loaf of amazing bread. Did you just replace the 3 cups of almond flour with 3 cups of sunflower seed flour? All the rest of the ingredients remained the same?
This is brilliant. I made it today not in a mug but a cereal bowl. So it was bigger. I could only eat half. Rather filling. I layered it with cream cheese and a thin slice of smoked ham for mid afternoon snack. Slight bitter after taste which i think is from the baking powder. I am going to make it again with herbs like some others have suggested. Thanks HBK😚
Ok, My last question before I try it for the 5th time. Thank you for taking the time to answer!! I know you say grind it more, but here is my dilemma. You says yours weighs 90 grams for 10 tablespoons. So, i weighed mine out (I grind in a high power vitamix) my 10 tablespoons weight 115 grams…so mine is more dense than yours. I’m torn, should I actually grind less? Buy another brand? Maybe Frontier? Thanks for any help. I am so frustrated not having a bread sub for my grain free family 🙁 I tried protein bread but I have this awful aversion to cream cheese taste and can’t seem to get over it 🙁 Even if I could just get a baguette or roll to work out I’d be so happy! I get my hubby’s hopes up every time it bakes because it smells so good! Thanks again!
Hi, I’ve made this recipe twice and LOVE the taste. However, both times the bread would rise so high in the oven, but as soon as I take it out to cool it deflated and middle sink down. What could’ve gone wrong? Over mixing? I did switch coconut flour to all almond flour instead. Could that be a problem? Please help as I’m anxious to make another batch. Thank you.
In particular, eat a healthy diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Exercise is also important when it comes to preventing this condition. Regular physical activity will reduce your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. The key is to try to maintain a healthy weight. Talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise program or radically changing your diet.

Test ketones in the late morning or afternoon. Blood and urine ketones are usually lowest right after waking up. Try testing later on, preferably a few hours after eating. Even if you’re only in ketosis for a portion of the day, you’re still getting some benefits, as discussed in this talk by Dr. Steve Phinney: Achieving and maintaining nutritional ketosis.
Maria – I’ve tried making this loaf twice and each time it’s still gummy! I use the same Nuts.com almond flour and Jay Robb psyllium husk powder, and weigh everything. The first time, I baked 60m and let cool completely. The loaf shrunk down and was gummy all in the center, like it was undercooked. This time, I baked 115m (after slicing at 75m and finding it gummy), and it shrunk down immediately after removing from the oven and is still gummy! Any advice? I want large, fluffy, non-gummy slices like you!
If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin.
I am so impressed by your bread recipes. Have spent the last two days just baking away and they taste absolutely great! What a joy to finally find something this tasty and healthy. I noticed in your previous post that we could expect to read about “What I eat” from you next. We’re staying tuned and waiting with great curiosity. Will pass on to our libraries about your books, for sure.
It’s well known that adherence to the prescribed diet is usually low and self-reported food intake is very unreliable. So there’s no way to guarantee that the participants strictly adhered to the diet. Because it requires a lot of discipline and planning to stay in ketosis for a long time without interruption, it won’t be possible to perform a long-term study that guarantees uninterrupted ketosis using old study methods. This may change soon with improved self-tracking devices.
But comprehensive transcriptional profiling of glucose-sensing neurons is challenging, as glucokinase (Gck) and other key proteins that transduce glucose signals are expressed at low levels. Glucose also exerts a hormonal-like action on neurons; electrophysiological recordings demonstrated, for example, that hypoglycemia activates growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) neurons, suggesting a mechanistic link between low blood glucose levels and growth hormone release (Stanley et al., 2013).

The last issue is your consumption of “residual” carbohydrates—the carbs you’re not even aware you’re eating, like those in nuts and meal-replacement shakes. It’s OK to have some nuts, but you should rely more on other fat sources that are carb-free like oils and cheeses. Remember that meal replacement shakes and protein shakes are not the same. The typical meal-replacement powder contains up to half your day’s intake of carbs. Instead, opt for a scoop of regular protein powder after your workout. Make these changes and you’ll see your six-pack soon enough.
The keto diet revolves around eating foods that are high in natural fats, consuming only moderate protein and severely restricting the number of carbs eaten each day. Even if you don’t have much weight to lose, entering into a state of ketosis can be helpful for other reasons — such as for improved energy levels, mental capabilities and mood stabilization.
Forget Atkins and Paleo — the new low-carb diet du jour is called keto, as in ketogenic. Although there are many similarities between these diets, a keto diet is all about restricting carbohydrates and increasing healthy fats. The goal is to force your body’s metabolism into ketosis, which means it burns fat instead of glucose — because without carbs, glucose isn’t readily available.
Ketosis is the result of following the ketogenic diet, which is why it’s also sometimes called “the ketosis diet.” Ketosis takes place when glucose from carbohydrate foods (like grains, all sources of sugar or fruit, for example) is drastically reduced, which forces the body to find an alternative fuel source: fat. Although dietary fat (especially saturated fat) often gets a bad name, provoking fear of weight gain and heart disease, it’s also your body’s second preferred source of energy when carbohydrates are not easily accessible.
Magnesium seems to be of particular importance when it comes to keeping blood sugar balanced. Deficiencies in this mineral have been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, and one study found that people with the highest magnesium intake were 47 percent less likely to develop diabetes. Supplementing with magnesium has also been shown to lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity. Making a point to consume plenty of magnesium-rich foods—leafy green veggies like spinach and Swiss chard, pumpkin seeds, almonds, black beans, dark chocolate, and avocado—is smart in general, as magnesium plays a role in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Nosh on some chromium-rich foods like broccoli, barley, and oats, while you’re at it. One study found that the combined effects of chromium and magnesium were more beneficial than either mineral alone.
