  • 3 tbsp almond flour (or 1 1/3 tbsp coconut flour)
  • 1 tbsp oil (melted butter, melted coconut oil, avocado oil)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg (See notes on how to make this less "eggy")
  • tiny pinch of salt


  • add all ingredients to a 4x4 microwave safe bowl, tap on the counter a few times to remove air bubbles, and microwave for 90 seconds.  You can also bake in a oven safe container for 10 minutes at 375F



For 1 serving using almond flour: 315 calories / 29g fat / 4.7g carbs / 2g fiber / 11g protein
For 1 serving using coconut flour: 235 calories / 20g fat / 5.7 carbs / 3g fiber / 8g protein
  • To make this less eggy tasting, use just an egg white as the egg yolk is where the eggy taste comes from.
  • Tap the container on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles before you cook it
  • You could really use any nut flour that you want if you are allergic to almonds or coconut.  For alternative nut flours like pecan four, you would use 3 tbsp.  You use half the amount for coconut flour because it's not really a nut and it is very absorbent!
  • I found that a 4x4 microwave safe container made the perfect size piece of low carb bread that could be cut in half and stuffed with all the things
  • You could also use a round container that is 4 inches in diameter for a keto mug bread
  • If you would rather bake this in the oven, you can use an oven safe container and bake at 375 for 10 minutes
  • Toasting this low carb bread makes it have a much better texture.  you could also use a skillet to toast it in some butter.  Yum!
