Sourdough bread recipes are quite popular these days and with good reason. In down-times, we love to bake, and sourdough bread is one of the few recipes that are worth making.

 

Is sourdough bread OK on the keto diet?

 

Not al sourdough bread recipes are made the same. If you come across sourdough bread made with all-purpose flour, then you cannot have it if you’re following a keto lifestyle. However, if it is made with gluten-free flour like almond flour and other low carb ingredients, like this recipe below, then you can enjoy it guilt-free. 

This simple recipe makes a delicious low carb bread with a golden crust and chewy interior that is keto-friendly. 

Although it may seem impossible to make a good sourdough bread recipe meet the standards of the keto diet, I assure you that you can make an amazing low carb sourdough bread recipe and I’ll show you how to do this. All you’ll need are some simple keto ingredients that you likely already have your pantry and you’re all set to start!

 

Tips and tricks

  • For the best result, use the right flour. For me, I use fine almond flour rather than almond meal. This will give the bread the desired results.
  • To get the right taste, do not skip the use of vinegar. You can use raw apple cider vinegar if you want to achieve that classic sourdough bread recipe taste.
  • Make sure you use the right flax. Do not use flax meal, but instead, use a flax powder for this recipe. If you’re using flax meal, the results will not be as good.
  • As with any other bread you wish to bake, let the bread rest for 15 minutes before baking so the baking powder can develop and make your bread light.

NOTE: This is a carved sourdough bread recipe. You do not have to carve yours at all and I just did it for the fun of it. However, if you do want to carve you’re then simply, dust the surface with 1-2 tbsp fine almond flour and carve with a carving tool or very sharp knife.

Next, in a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, psyllium husk powder, coconut flour, flax seeds powder, and salt.

 

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites, egg, buttermilk, and apple cider vinegar.

 

Then fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients together.

 

Gradually add water and mix until you have a nice dough. At this point, you should consider preheating your oven to 375F.

 

Dust the kitchen surface with some almond flour and transfer the dough onto the surface. Gently knead until you have a nice round ball.

 

Place the dough in a greased baking dish. Let the bread rest for 15 minutes.

OPTIONAL: Dust the bread with almond flour, and carve the bread making the desired shape.

NOTE: If you’re making a carved sourdough bread, cover the bread with aluminum foil to prevent the almond flour from burning. Bake the bread for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 300F and bake the bread for 1 hour. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

NOTE: If you are not carving the bread, just bake as described, without covering with the aluminum foil.

Once baked, cool the bread for a few minutes.
