I’m on a ketogenic diet, if you’d like to learn more about it you can watch The Magic Pill Movie on Netflix, and if you’re interested in adding in some intermittent fasting and exercise (Steady Slate and HIIT) with an online coach, then check out Mubaraka Ibrahim’s mR40 program. I am therefore constantly on the lookout for recipes that include keto friendly ingredients, so I don’t have to deprive myself too much, and can trick my brain into thinking I’m having bread, or a delicious loaf, although there are no grains in it!
I took my queue from Mubaraka Ibrahim’s suggestions, and searched the net for complementaries. Finally I came up with a recipe for a loaf that tastes rich, is wonderfully moist, and deliciously neutral, so you could use it simply with butter, or with ricotta cheese and harissa (pictures below).
Preheat oven to 350F, or 180C.
1 1/2 c almond flour
1/3 c psyllium husk flour
1/2 c coconut flour
1/2 c hemp flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp each of sesame, caraway and cumin seeds
Mix all dry ingredients
6 whole eggs
1/4 c melted salted butter
3/4 c unsweetened almond milk
Mix all wet ingredients separately from dry ones.
Combine the two mixes
Slowly add 2 c boiling water, 1/2 c at a time, mix constantly until the water is absorbed.
Pour into buttered loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Let cool and serve in slices.
The loaf will deflate slightly as it cools down, but it’ll remain fluffy and moist on the inside (it shouldn’t collapse).
You may sprinkle the seeds on top, as I did in the feature image, and you can replace almond milk for plain yogurt. These two wet ingredients are quite flexible and can be rearranged even in proportion.
I loved my loaf with ricotta cheese and harissa, pictured here, but you can substitute sweeter toppings if you prefer
