So, now, I’ve got another loaf in the oven. I doubled the salt, ground up the Psyllium Husk in my Blend Tec (instead of the shoddy thing I used the first time) and reduced the baking soda to 3 tsp. I also (accidentally) ended up with 1 egg yolk in there. Hopefully, that won’t cause too much of an issue. I weighed all my ingredients and I’m hopeful that this batch will give me the results I am looking for. I would *love* a grilled cheese sandwich for a quick-fix dinner with my keto plan. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe. I’ll let you know how this batch turns out.

Physical inactivity is a predictor of CVD events and related mortality. Many components of metabolic syndrome are associated with a sedentary lifestyle, including increased adipose tissue (predominantly central); reduced HDL cholesterol; and a trend toward increased triglycerides, blood pressure, and glucose in the genetically susceptible. Compared with individuals who watched television or videos or used their computers for less than one hour daily, those who carried out these behaviors for greater than four hours daily have a twofold increased risk of metabolic syndrome.[27]

I want to use this means to let the world know that all hope is not lost Getting pregnant after having tubes clamped and burned, I know IVF and Reversal could help but it way too cost, i couldn’t afford it either and i so desire to add another baby to my family been trying for 5 years, not until i came across Priest Maggi, who cast a pregnancy/Fertility spell for me and i got pregnant.l hope that women out there who are going through the same fears and worries l went through in GETTING PREGNANT , will find your contact as i drop it here on this site, and solution will come to them as they contact you.

Insulin resistance also may increase your risk for metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body can’t use its insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that helps move blood sugar into cells where it’s used for energy. Insulin resistance can lead to high blood sugar levels, and it’s closely linked to overweight and obesity. Genetics (ethnicity and family history) and older age are other factors that may play a role in causing metabolic syndrome.
Maria, I made this bread today – weighed my ingredients carefully and followed instructions. My only adaptation was adding a little liquid Stevia, cinnamon, and raisins right before putting into the bread pan. It raised nicely but fell a little while cooling and is pretty heavy, although tastes great. Any help on what I did wrong? (I’m not sure my water was boiling enough – it was just starting to bubble, not full rolling boil, when I added it. Would that make the difference?)
I just made this keto bread, and it is amazing! It’s better than most bread I’ve tasted! I made mine with bacon, American cheese, Brie, and Camembert (because I wanted to be extra). If you use bacon, cook it to how you normally like it in a seperate pan, as the bacon doesn’t cook much extra while baking. I think I used a little too much butter, but, oh boy, was it nice and moist!
My name is Lynasia Moore from Las Vegas and I want to make a testimony, I started having this symptoms and then I went for a test and my doctor ask me to come back after one week so I went back only to be told that I’m HIV positive, I was devastated but before then I have already contacted a spell caster called Dr Excel and told him the whole story that if it comes out positive I will be needing his help to help cure it with his herbal medication so I went back to him and told him that its turns out positive so I make things available for him and then he prepare me a herbal medication and sent it to me, I received it and make use of it according to his instructions so after finish drinking it then he ask me to go for another HIV test which surprisingly turn out negative and my doctor ask me to come back for a final test after three months. Now I’m so happy so all thanks to Dr Excel for his help so you can also contact him on his email address Excelherbalcure@gmail.com or call on +1 (859) 429 1007
AMPK and sirtuins are the interface between the metabolic stimuli of nutritional ketosis and the downstream signaling that influences expression of proteins related to bioenergetics and antioxidant defense. Some of the primary downstream signaling molecules involved include PGC-1α, FOXO3a, nuclear respiratory factors 1 and 2 (NRF-1 and NRF-2), mitochondrial transcription factor A (TFAM), and NFE2L2.
The best way to prevent metabolic syndrom is to adopt heart-healthy lifestyle changes. Make sure to schedule routine doctor visits to keep track of your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Speak with your doctor about a blood test called a lipoprotein panel, which shows your levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.

Dr. Campos, it is so discouraging to see that you disparage the ketogenic diet based on your assumption that it is very heavy in poor quality processed meats. No diet that relies on processed foods can be viewed as “healthy”. Become better informed by getting up to speed with what Jeff Volek, RD, PhD, calls a “well-formulated ketogenic diet.” Also, learn more about the potential of the diet to slow cancer progression (my specialty). You owe it to your patients who are depending on you for advice. Present them with facts, not opinions.
While the lipid abnormalities seen with metabolic syndrome (low HDL, high LDL, and high triglycerides) respond nicely to weight loss and exercise, drug therapy is often required. Treatment should be aimed primarily at reducing LDL levels according to specific recommendations. Once reduced LDL targets are reached, efforts at reducing triglyceride levels and raising HDL levels should be made. Successful drug treatment usually requires treatment with a statin, a fibrate drug, or a combination of a statin with either niacin or a fibrate.

In skeletal muscle, impaired mitochondrial function contributes to age-associated atrophy, impaired contraction, and insulin resistance [2]. While exercise provides a direct stimulus for mitochondrial adaptation in muscle, with great potential to prevent or treat the aforementioned conditions, the global effects of exercise on bioenergetic homeostasis may lead to mitochondrial adaptations in other tissues as well. Based on this, exercise has the potential to influence any condition for which impairments in global energy metabolism or local mitochondrial function are a contributing factor, which is arguably the case for a majority of chronic diseases. Exercise is therefore an excellent adjunct to nutritional ketosis because it facilitates β-oxidation and ketogenesis by increasing energy demand and depleting glycogen storage, which is likely to augment the signaling induced by nutritional ketosis.
One hypothesised contributor to neuronal death is insufficient energy production, secondary to impaired mitochondrial function. However, it is unclear if this is in fact a cause or effect of PD. Whatever the case may be, patients with PD have been shown to have impaired mitochondrial energy production in the brain59 and lower brain glucose utilisation60. Another factor may be neuro-inflammation, which is also common in PD, and is thought to lead to further accumulation of Lewy Bodies and neuronal death.
The trick here is not only to avoid all obvious sourced of carbohydrate (sweets, bread, spaghetti, rice, potatoes), but also to be careful with your protein intake. If you eat large amounts of meat, eggs and the like, the excess protein will converted into glucose in the body. Large amounts of protein can also raise your insulin levels somewhat. This compromises optimal ketosis.
Insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body use glucose -- a simple sugar made from the food you eat -- as energy. In people with insulin resistance, the insulin doesn't work as well, so your body keeps making more and more of it to cope with the rising level of glucose. Eventually, this can lead to diabetes. Insulin resistance is closely connected to having excess weight in the belly.
Using a blend of almond and coconut flours, this sturdy keto bread will even hold up to freezing. Take 10 minutes to blend flours with baking powder, salt, butter, and egg whites, then bake for an easy loaf that won’t turn your kitchen upside down. Stay more Bulletproof and use grass-fed butter in this recipe — each slice will still run you just 1 net carb.
Hello!! Went grain free about two months ago to reverse a chronic illness. Am feeling great but was jonesing for a piece of bread!! Big time!! And that’s what you gave me! I wish I could share the photos I have of this loaf which baked up beautifully!! It is light and airy and tastes mild and yummy. Interestingly, when I toasted it up, a hint of coconut came out (obviously from the coconut flour). Thank you so much for sharing this… sandwich here I come!!
Sounds weird? Yeah I thought so too! Ok let me explain. When at room temperature I’m fairly certain you’ll all agree it tastes like a lovely corn (free) bread. Dense, but soft and lightly crumbly (and I’m fairly certain that with a cornbread extract some good stuff will happen). But then when you warm it up, it goes softer again and reminds me of a lovely sweet bun.

AMPK is activated through phosphorylation of the Thr172 residue of the AMPK α catalytic subunit [174–176], and this phosphorylation is largely regulated by molecules related to bioenergetic homeostasis including AMP, ADP, catecholamines, adiponectin, glycogen, and insulin. In general, AMPK is activated by energy deficit and induces signaling that upregulates energy production. AMP and ADP are direct byproducts of energy depletion while adiponectin and catecholamines serve as endocrine signals to increase energy production, often in response to energy depletion. In contrast, indications of energy surplus, such as glycogen and insulin, inhibit activation of AMPK. Nutritional ketosis increases the aforementioned factors that activate AMPK and decreases those that inhibit AMPK, suggesting that nutritional ketosis is similar to caloric restriction in inducing a signal of energy depletion.
Central obesity is a key feature of the syndrome, being both a sign and a cause, in that the increasing adiposity often reflected in high waist circumference may both result from and contribute to insulin resistance. However, despite the importance of obesity, patients who are of normal weight may also be insulin-resistant and have the syndrome.[27]
Apart from administering insulin, the fastest way to lower your blood glucose is to engage in physical activity. Exercise results in an increased sensitivity to insulin. It causes your muscle cells to take up more glucose, leaving less of it to circulate in your bloodstream during and after the physical activity (which means a lower blood glucose when you test). Frequent, regular exercise is very important to good blood glucose control no matter what type of diabetes you have. Research has shown that it is vital in warding off long-term complications like neuropathy, retinopathy, and heart and kidney diseases. Don't forget to check with a doctor, though, before making any major changes to your exercise routine. And, if you have type 1 diabetes and your glucose is 250 mg/dl or higher, check for urine ketones. You should not exercise if ketones are present.

A well-formulated ketogenic diet, besides limiting carbohydrates, also limits protein intake moderately to less than 1g/lb body weight, unless individuals are performing heavy exercise involving weight training when the protein intake can be increased to 1.5g/lb body weight. This is to prevent the endogenous production of glucose in the body via gluconeogenesis. However, it does not restrict fat or overall daily calories. People on a ketogenic diet initially experience rapid weight loss up to 10 lbs in 2 weeks or less. This diet has a diuretic effect, and some early weight loss is due to water weight loss followed by a fat loss. Interestingly with this diet plan, lean body muscle is largely spared. As a nutritional ketosis state sustains, hunger pangs subside, and an overall reduction in caloric intake helps to further weight loss.

The FOXO family of transcription factors is highly conserved and promotes longevity and resistance to cellular stress. Although there are a variety of FOXO isoforms with varying tissue distribution [318–320], FOXO3a has been the most thoroughly studied in relation to energy sensing, mitochondrial function, and antioxidant defense. Similar to PGC-1α, FOXO3a is activated through phosphorylation by AMPK [321–323] and deacetylation by SIRT1 [324, 325] and SIRT3 [326–329], and its transcriptional activity is at least partly dependent on AMPK [322] and SIRT1 [325]. In a variety of organisms, tissues, and cell types, FOXO3a increases mitochondrial biogenesis and expression of TFAM [329], but is more known for increasing expression of antioxidant and repair proteins, including SOD2 [287, 330, 331], catalase [287, 330, 332, 333], glutathione S-transferase (GST) [322], thioredoxins [287, 323], Prx3 [287, 334], Prx5 [287], and metallothioneins I and II [322], as well as UCP2 [287, 322] and the DNA repair enzyme growth arrest and DNA damage-inducible 45 (GADD45) [322, 324, 335, 336]. FOXO3a is also activated by oxidative stress [324, 331, 333], possibly in a SIRT1-dependent manner [324], and likely mediated through c-Jun N-terminal protein kinase (JNK), which allows FOXOs to translocate to the nucleus by promoting dissociation of 14-3-3 [337, 338]. Furthermore, FOXO3a and SIRT3 interact in mitochondria to induce mitochondrial gene expression in an AMPK-dependent manner [339]. FOXO3a also induces expression of LKB1 [340] and NAMPT [341], indicating a feed-forward cycle of activation with AMPK and sirtuins. Like PGC-1α, FOXO3a transcriptional activity is inhibited by insulin through PKB [331].

Hi Howard, You’re right that this bread doesn’t rise much – the volume comes mostly from whipping the egg whites. If the whites fell too much, the bread might not be tall enough. But even if they didn’t, it might still be shorter than some other tall bread loaves. Feel free to multiply the recipe by 1.5 if you prefer a taller loaf. I’m glad you liked the flavor and texture!
Theoretically, supplying ketones during this period of compromised glucose metabolism could prevent the energy deficit and reduce the likelihood of long-term brain damage. This could be because ketones can act as an alternative, highly energy efficient substrate7. Additionally, the antioxidant, antiinflammatory33 and anti-apoptosis properties of ketones (i.e ketones prevent the opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore, which causes cell death66) could protect against neuronal loss and damage. 
No you are not the only one who is trying the recipe, trust me, these people commenting did try it and sent me photos of their breads. You can also watch the short video on how to make it. I have tried it many times. You are probably not reading the servings and nutritional information- I mean 1 tbsp, because these are individual breads, baked in ramekins. One cup of every ingredient won’t fit on a single ramekin.

Ketoacidosis occurs mainly in people with type 1 diabetes if they do not take insulin. In diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), blood sugar and ketones rise to dangerous levels, which disrupts the blood’s delicate acid-base balance. People in ketoacidosis feel extremely ill and experience profound dehydration, vomiting, abdominal pain, and weakness. DKA requires hospitalization so that IV fluids and insulin can be given to gradually and safely lower blood sugar.


One side effect of ketosis that some people experience is the keto rash. It is rare but can be very irritating. The keto rash occurs in the armpits, chest, and back. These areas are red and itching. There are several theories about the causes of the rash. Because it is found in regions where sweat accumulates, the most plausible explanation is that acetone in the sweat irritates the skin. [7].
Is there any way you can post at the beginning of a recipe: NOT for weight loss. I have tried a few recipes before reading the comments below, made it, then saw it was a no no for weight loss. Thanks! I made your pita bread too and it rocks. I am waiting for this amazing bread to come out of the over right now. I am worried about eating now though. Too many carbs for weight loss?
Ok folks, I have been experimenting with this recipe for months with varying success/failure. Mostly, no matter what I did, I got the tunnel at the top of the bread and the bottom was rubbery and mehhhhh. I have experimented with different amounts, I have stuck to the precise measurements listed, I have tried different suggestions in the comments. NOTHING. Finally!!!!! I have a perfect loaf, wish I could post a pic. Hope this works for you too. Heres what I did different. First, I used 85 grams of psyllium fiber powder instead of 90, and most importantly, I used finely ground almond flour (Honeyville to be specific) which is honestly what I think made the big difference. Also, I put the bread pan all the way on the bottom rack and I baked it for an hour and 25 minutes. I cannot express the joy I have from finally getting a great result! I hope it helps you too.
I am very happy today to share this amazing testimony on how Dr. MAGGI the herbal doctor was able to cure me from my HIV Virus with his herbal medicine. I have been a HIV patient for almost 8 months now and have tried different methods of treatment to ensure that I am cured of this terrible disease, but none worked for me, so I had to leave everything to God to handle as I was a Christian who had faith that one day God would intervene in my life, yet I felt so sad and desperate as I was losing almost everything due to my illness, A few months ago while I was surfing the internet I saw different recommendation about Dr MAGGI on how he have been using his herbal Medicine to treat and cure people, these people advice we contact Dr. MAGGI for any problem that would help immediately, I contacted Dr MAGGI and I told him how I got his contact and also about my disease, after some time Dr.MAGGI told me to have faith that he would prepare medicine for me a medication of herbal herbs, he told me I would take this medicine for a few weeks and also asked for my home address so as possible for him to submit the drug for me, so my good friends after all the process and everything Dr MAGGI actually sent me the medicine, I took it as I was directed by Dr. MAGGI, after a few weeks passed, while on Dr.MAGGI medication I began to experience changes in my body, I had to call my doctor at the hospital for some blood test after test my hospital doctor told me that I was no longer with the Hiv virus and my blood is pretty good, I can’t even believe this, Friends well today i am Hiv Negative and i want everyone to know that there is a cure for Hiv for those who will contact Dr MAGGI after reading my testimony, you can kindly contact Dr. MAGGI on Email:Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com or call/whatsap him +2348148487280,or you can also check him on his Webs:https://drmaggiherbalcenter.webs.com .God bless you all..

Just made this and as a normal bread lover, I am very impressed! But do have a question. Can you over cook this? Mine seems a bit light inside, like a teenie bit mooshy, and can’t see it holding up in a sandwich. The temp was at 200 inside but I had already had it in for like 50 minutes longer than the posted time and I could still hear a little squish but didn’t want to over cook.
How can ketosis help reduce your risk various health concerns? It comes down to the benefits of stabilizing your blood sugar and decreasing glucose intake and usage. As glucose enters your blood, your pancreas sends out insulin to pick up the sugar and carry it to your cells so they can use it as energy. However, when your cells have used or stored all the glucose that they can, what remains is converted into glycogen to be stored in the liver and muscles OR converted into triglycerides, the storage form of fat.
Too much fat at the waist . Although obesity in general raises your risk of metabolic syndrome, excess belly fat (being “apple-shaped”) is the riskiest kind of fat, defined as more than 40 inches around the waist for men, or more than 35 inches for women. Ask your doctor about different measurements for your ethnicity, Ndumele says. “Individuals of Asian descent are thought to have an increased risk at a lower threshold of belly fat, for example.”

The root cause of most cases of metabolic syndrome can be traced back to poor eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle. In some cases, a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome has also been assigned to those already diagnosed with hypertension or with poorly controlled diabetes. There also seems to be an association with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, polycystic ovarian disease, and some cancers. A few cases are thought to be linked to genetic factors.
[…] One of the things I’ve grown to love over the years is fried eggs with runny yolks. They’ve become a regular breakfast for me on the weekends. However, when I do regular low carb high fat meals, I like to have toast to dip into the egg yolks. Psyllium low carb bread seems to be all the rage right now, so I came up with this coconut flour psyllium husk bread that is perfect with my morning eggs. I’m not really sure who started the low carb psyllium bread trend, but one of the first breads I’ve found was Maria Emmerich’s Amazing Bread. […]

More recently, other hypothalamic appetite control regions have been identified, including those in the arcuate nucleus (ARC), the periventricular nucleus (PVN) and the dorsomedial hypothalamic nucleus (DMH) (Valassi et al., 2008). These are sites of convergence and integration of many central and peripheral signals, not just macronutrients, that are involved in food intake and energy expenditure mechanisms, e.g., a group of neurons in the ARC stimulating food intake via neuropeptide Y (NPY) and agouti gene-related protein (AGRP). These neurons interact with those producing the anorexigenic pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) and the cocaine/amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) (Williams et al., 2001). Thus, a more comprehensive, unified model should include macronutrients as well as many single amino acids and other signaling molecules.
Hi Diane, the bread should not be moist in the middle now should it fall apart. I don’t think substituting the butter for coconut oil could have been the reason for the problem – they have similar consistencies and can normally be subbed for one another without problem. The only thing I can think of is that you may need to bake it for longer. Ovens do vary and maybe it was the case that it was just not done. I hope this helps 🙂
Hi I made the Easy paleo keto bread 5 ingredients. It was moist, texture was good but it didn’t turn out completely white, more like a pale yellow and the crust was overdone. I opted for honey as my sweetner because this bread is for my nephew who has autism and we want to keep it as natural as possible. I baked the bread exactly at 325 for 40mins uncovered and then another 40mins covered (tent). What could I do next time to achieve a white bread with golden crust?

Maria and Craig: I made this recipe (into kaiser roll shapes) on Sunday night for the first time. I just ate my first sandwich (pork roast and mayo, yummy) on it and almost wept with happiness. It is SO good. The texture is PERFECT. It was easy and quick to make. And I can actually see my way to a GF lifestyle…sandwiches have been my bugaboo all along. Thank you, thank you for all your hard work and wonderful recipes!

4.) Fill the dough into a loaf tin lined with baking paper. If you don’t use a silicone loaf pan line ALL SIDES with parchment paper so the bread will release easily. Smooth the top, but don’t press down too much – keep as much air in the dough as possible. Bake at 180 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean!
Ketosis is a metabolic state in which the liver produces small organic molecules called ketone bodies at “sufficient” levels, which I’ll expand upon later.  First, let’s get the semantics correct. The first confusing thing about ketosis is that ketone bodies are not all – technically — ketones, whose structure is shown below. Technically, the term ketone denotes an organic molecule where a carbon atom, sandwiched between 2 other carbon atoms (denoted by R and R’), is double-bonded to an oxygen atom.
Despite continuous advances in the medical world, obesity continues to remain a major worldwide health hazard with adult mortality as high as 2.8 million per year. The majority of chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease are largely related to obesity which is usually a product of unhealthy lifestyle and poor dietary habits. Appropriately tailored diet regimens for weight reduction can help manage the obesity epidemic to some extent. One diet regimen that has proven to be very effective for rapid weight loss is a very-low-carbohydrate and high-fat ketogenic diet.[1][2][3]
Similarly, several studies have demonstrated that up to half or more of patients undergoing PD have metabolic syndrome, and at least one study has demonstrated a significant increase in the prevalence with initiation of PD therapy. The only study that made a head-to-head comparison concluded that metabolic syndrome was significantly more prevalent in patients undergoing PD compared with in-center HD. These observations have raised concerns that PD therapy itself may contribute to the development of metabolic syndrome. However, the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in patients undergoing in-center HD in the only study with head-to-head comparison was substantially lower than in other studies. Moreover, there are two challenges with the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome in patients undergoing PD. First, the intraperitoneal instillation of dialysate with PD results in an increase in waist circumference, an important component for the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome. Second, there is continuous systemic absorption of glucose from intraperitoneal dialysate, and hence, patients undergoing PD are never in a postabsorptive state. This results in overestimation of fasting glucose and lipid parameters. Finally, the results from studies examining the association of metabolic syndrome with cardiovascular events or all-cause mortality have been inconsistent. This is not surprising because the individual components of metabolic syndrome themselves do not portend a higher risk for death or cardiovascular events in patients with ESRD, including among those undergoing PD.
Once inside the mitochondrion, the dominant way that the bound fatty acids are used as fuel in cells is through β-oxidation, which cleaves two carbons off of the acyl-CoA molecule in every cycle to form acetyl-CoA.[24] Acetyl-CoA enters the citric acid cycle, where it undergoes an aldol condensation with oxaloacetate to form citric acid; citric acid then enters the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA), which harvests a very high energy yield per carbon in the original fatty acid.[25][26]
Blood pressure goals are generally set lower than 130/80. Some blood pressure medications offer more benefits than simply lowering blood pressure. For example, a class of blood pressure drugs called ACE inhibitors has been found to also reduce the levels of insulin resistance and actually deter the development of type 2 diabetes. This is an important consideration when discussing the choice blood pressure drugs in the metabolic syndrome.

Basically, carbohydrates are the primary source of energy production in body tissues. When the body is deprived of carbohydrates due to reducing intake to less than 50g per day, insulin secretion is significantly reduced and the body enters a catabolic state. Glycogen stores deplete, forcing the body to go through certain metabolic changes. Two metabolic processes come into action when there is low carbohydrate availability in body tissues: gluconeogenesis and ketogenesis.[4][5]
Alyssa, one more thing. Both the bowl and the beaters need to be spotlessly clean. If there is one hint of oil anywhere the whites will not beat properly. Nicole is correct about not using a plastic bowl. Plastic will even absorb oil to say nothing of the microscopic amounts that get into the surface when it’s scratched. When baking it is always best to use a metal or glass bowl for all of your mixing.
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!
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.
So happy I tried this recipe there are so many out there and you pick one to make and it has always been disappointing until now. I pinned both bread recipes the yeast one and the 90 second one and went for the 90 second since because not enough almond flour on hand. Wow so good!! No weird taste it really does toast up great like regular toast finally get that crunch. Thank you for all the work you put in to perfecting recipes. Finally found a bread recipe I will make again and again. Will try the yeast one soon. 🙂

I can’t find an 8×4 pan in the local stores, so while I wait for one to be shipped I went ahead and made these into hamburger bun shape. I don’t have a kitchen scale so I just measured everything super precise and got great results. I only have NOW brand psyllium husk powder so yes, they are an odd shade of purple but they taste great so I don’t care. What I really wanted was a vessel for butter and it made for a great snack before bed- which I know I’m not supposed to have but I was too curious to wait until morning! 🙂 Thanks for the update on this recipe, it made all the difference!
Kids who have a family history of heart disease or diabetes are at greater risk for metabolic syndrome. But, as with many things in life, the lifestyle habits a child adopts can push things in one direction or another. So kids who are active, fit, and eat a lot of fruits and vegetables may drastically decrease their chances of developing metabolic syndrome — even if a close relative already has it.
I made this over the weekend. I weighed all of my ingredients and it looked beautiful when it came out of the oven. I baked it for the 75 minutes. It fell after it cooled and when I cut it open, it was purple and a little gummy even after 75 minutes of baking time. After toasting the slices, it tasted very good and I even served it to company. The kids all thought it was cool that the bread was purple. Should I reduce the water? If so, by how much? I will try and get Jay Robb psyllium husk powder in the future. I used Vitacost brand and it tasted fine but, it is not always easy to get people to try purple bread. Thanks for the recipe. We will be making purple bread until we run out of the psyllium husk powder we have.
I might sound weird, awkward and nasty to most people but only the few ones will have a listening ear to what I am telling the world….. I contacted HERPES VIRUS since 2015 but I was recently cured from my HERPES VIRUS middle of last year April 5th 2018 by DR.MAGGI. I met with Doctor MAGGI himself online when I read a post comment of someone testifying on how she was cured from her HERPES VIRUS by this same doctor MAGGI. I collected the herbal doctor’s contact number from the testifier and I contacted the herbal doctor, I told him everything and how I have been suffering from HERPES VIRUS since 2015…. He told me I shouldn’t be worried, that he is going to prepare an herbal medicine cure for me which he actually did and sent to me through UPS delivery service company. I got the medicine and I started using the medicine as I was told by the doctor and I followed the prescription and the dosage,,, after 14days of which I was told to use the herbal medicine, he asked me to go to the hospital for check up….. In fact my God in Heaven can bear me witness on this, behold! I was detected HERPES VIRUS FREE and ever since that day I have been going to several test and my result is always HERPES VIRUS FREE. I was cured from my HERPES VIRUS by doctor MAGGI, I was so happy and I vowed to keep on sharing my own testimony to the entire public and world to know that HERPES VIRUS has a cure with the help of Professor Doctor MAGGI herbal medicine you can get rid/cure of your HERPES VIRUS. He is such a powerful and great African herbal doctor…. I love him so much and may God continue to bless him and flourish his good works. His contact number is:+1(306)993-9253, you can also add him up on what-sap with the same number,Or you can send him a message to his email address: maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com. God bless! you all.
Looking back on my earlier posts on ketosis—and explaining what I eat, for example—makes me both chuckle and cringe. I remember how bizarre the diet seemed to many readers and the general public at the time. I also remember digging into the literature and learning, for example, that my alma mater, Johns Hopkins had been using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy for almost a century…and being so embarrassed about admonishing that patient I saw in my residency.
Hi Maria, I love your bread recipes but can’t get over the one thing, the gritty texture you get in one every couple bites due to the psyllium husk, I have tried different brands and all have it. I haven’t tried Jay Robs yet. But have you tried ground up chia seeds instead by any chance? I read somewhere to just add twice the amount of water. Thanks
Natural herbs have cure so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure.I have seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful works they have done in peoples lives.I read people’s testimonies on line on how they were cured of herpes,HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Akhigbe.herbal medicines,so I decided to contact because I know nature has the power to heal anything.I was diagnosed with HIV for the past 7 year but Dr Akhigbe cured me with his herpes and I referred my aunt and her husband to him. Immediately because they where both suffering from herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs. He is also good in curing diabetes,cancer,asthman,diarrhea,hiv/aids,impotence and other virus. Contact Dr Akhigbe on phone/WhatsApp no: +2348142454860 or email him on..drrealakhigbe@gmail.com

Just wanted to share that I made this recipe yesterday. I don’t have a lot of success with loaves so I used my bun top pans and the recipe gave me 12 rolls and a small loaf which I cut into 6 slices for a couple of french toast breakfast treats for me! I used a 1/4 cup measure for the rolls (not packed) and pressed the dough into the round shape. I thought I’d only get 6 actual burger buns but they were big enough to carefully slice in half so I got 12! I baked the rolls for 30 min and the loaf for 60. This will be my go to from now on! Thank you!


Hi John, You could possible try a hand mixer in a bowl instead of the food processor, but I haven’t tried it, so can’t vouch for the results. Most likely the bread would not be as tall because the mixer would completely deflate the first half of the egg whites when you add them to the batter. The second half should be folded so that part will be find. If you try with a bowl and hand mixer, let me know how that goes.
Apart from administering insulin, the fastest way to lower your blood glucose is to engage in physical activity. Exercise results in an increased sensitivity to insulin. It causes your muscle cells to take up more glucose, leaving less of it to circulate in your bloodstream during and after the physical activity (which means a lower blood glucose when you test). Frequent, regular exercise is very important to good blood glucose control no matter what type of diabetes you have. Research has shown that it is vital in warding off long-term complications like neuropathy, retinopathy, and heart and kidney diseases. Don't forget to check with a doctor, though, before making any major changes to your exercise routine. And, if you have type 1 diabetes and your glucose is 250 mg/dl or higher, check for urine ketones. You should not exercise if ketones are present.
I was recently diagnosed with diabetes which I had had uncontrolled for an estimated seven years. I have done a lot of research and while there is a lot of diabetes information available, little was helpful for whatever reasons – too simplistic in nature, didn’t answer hard hitting questions, or didn’t apply forward thinking scenarios. This article is one of the best I have read because it is both clear and concise and givens you all of your essential important information in a single place – something everyone needs. Even after all of my research, I still learned a couple new things reading this article. Excellent reference.
Oatmeal is the ultimate morning meal in the winter months—and anytime your soul needs something warm. Ruled.me’s breakfast porridge makes that experience possible on a keto diet. Instead of your usual oats, it’s made with flaxseed meal and coconut flour, and sweetened with erythritol, to keep sugar and carb counts low. (The texture feels something like cream of wheat.)
Another lipid marker of interest is blood triglyceride levels. Blood triglycerides are frequently elevated in the metabolic syndrome, and are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease111. A common misconception is that consuming high levels of fat leads to persistently high levels of blood triglycerides. However, there is data that suggests that a high fat diet does not affect blood triglyceride levels, and may even lower them21 ,112, especially following a period of adaptation113. 
Normally, the body breaks down carbohydrates, fat, and (sometimes) proteins to provide energy. When carbohydrate is consumed in the diet, some is used immediately to maintain blood glucose levels, and the rest is stored. The hormone that signals to cells to store carbohydrate is insulin. The liver stores carbohydrate as glycogen, this is broken down and released between meals to keep blood glucose levels constant. Muscles also store glycogen, when broken down this provides fuel for exercise. Most cells in the body can switch readily between using carbohydrates and fat as fuel. Fuel used depends on substrate availability, on the energy demands of the cell and other neural and hormonal signals. 
I used the coconut flour, Now whole psyllium husks (ground by me), and whole eggs…this bread is exactly what I have been looking for, for such a long time. Yes a bit dense with the whole eggs but super-tasty nonetheless. I know if doing egg whites would make a bit lighter. Mine did not turn purple either, and I didn’t order a special pan, just used a regular loaf pan. Also, used coconut vinegar instead as all I had on hand and subbed perfectly. Thank you Thank you for a terrific recipe!
Maria, can you clarify the recipe as far as fluid ounces versus weighted ounces? For example, for the boiling water, 1.5 cups of water is 12 fluid ounces, but 1.5 cups of water does not weigh 12 weighted ounces. As I watch your video, you weigh the boiling water in a measuring cup, but once again I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be 12 fluid or weighted ounces. And is that true for the vinegar and egg whites as well… fluid ounces versus weighted ounces?

Love how quick and easy these are to whip up and they’re really satisfying to eat. Made them tonight to use as hamburger buns; sliced them in half and grilled them and they worked great. I think the coconut gives them some sweetness that reminds me of cornbread (I used a coconut/almond milk blend for the liquid). I think we’ll be making a lot of these!
Ketones may also have effects in neurons beyond their use as an energy source. Preliminary work shows ketones can affect neurotransmitter release, reduce inflammation in the brain and reduce damage caused by oxidative stress8. Whilst the strength of the clinical evidence supporting the use of ketosis varies according to the condition, future work should look to explore the efficacy and underlying mechanisms further. Ketosis (by diet or by exogenous ketones) could offer an intervention that has good efficacy, but without the side effects profile of many drugs currently in use. It should be noted that the use of ketogenic diet or exogenous ketones in the conditions discussed below is still classified as ‘experimental’ in the most part and so individuals should not their alter medication or diet without full medical supervision.  

I have been looking for a good keto bread recipe. I have tried a few others with a “meh”. This one is a WOW! Prior to going Keto, I loved to cook and bake, it is my main hobby. But after going Keto, I have had to learn a whole new way of cooking. I followed the recipe to a T knowing how to work my way around the kitchen and the only difference is the fact that mine turned out purple. It is clearly the psyllium. Thank you so much for a wonderful and easy recipe for a great bread!

The secret step in this recipe that takes this carb-free bread from good to great is the separation of the eggs. You’re going to want to separate the yolks and the whites. The reason for this is that we’re going to whip the egg whites until they are fluffy. We’re looking for soft peaks. This will add some volume to the otherwise dense keto bread. Beating the egg whites is the answer to the denseness that comes with making an almond flour bread. I’ve made countless baked goods using almond flour and the main problem I’ve encountered is how dense the finished product is. The fluffy egg whites in unison with the high dosage of baking powder do a good job of getting this loaf nice and fluffy and adding some air pockets into the loaf. This makes for a better tasting bread.
