Ingredients

  • 2 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 6 Egg whites
  • 3/4 cup Low fat buttermilk
  • ¼ cup Apple Cider Vinegar for example Braggs
  • 1 cup Warm fresh water
  • 1 ½ cup Almond Flour
  • cup Psyllium husks
  • ½ cup Coconut flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tbsp Sea salt Your choice, just a pinch

Instructions

  • Start by warming up the kitchen oven to a cozy 175-180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted oven.) You will certainly need to tweak the baking times for the keto French bread recipe depending entirely on the type of oven you have in your home. Baking times will also depend on the size of the baguettes also.
  • Use a reliable kitchen scale to measure out all of the keto French bread ingredients for this keto bread recipe. Do this as carefully as possible then place the ingredients to one side.
  • Next combine all of the dry ingredients in a suitable mixing bowl or prep basin. For clarity the dry ingredients consist of the: coconut flour, the psyllium powder, the baking soda, ground flaxseed and of course the pinch of sea salt to taste.)
  • Find a separate suitable mixing bowl and readily combine the free range eggs, the egg whites and low fat buttermilk until evenly mixed and combined together. Eggs from free range hens are kinder to the hens, ( my choice. )
  • Next add in the egg mixture and blend together well with a mixer or whisk until the dough mixture is nice and thick. You can blend the mix by hand it is just way easier with a decent whisk or electric blender.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar eg Braggs and the lukewarm fresh water and blend together once more until all the mixture for the keto French bread is nicely combined together.
  • It is quite important to not over blend the dough mixture for the French bread recipe. Do not let it go too smooth!
  • Using a ladle or spoon, make 8-9 medium or 15-16 mini French baguettes and place them on a rectangular baking tray lined with some quality parchment paper. Or if you prefer you may use a non-stick high heat tray if you have one of those style of baking trays to hand.

BAKING THE KETO FRENCH BREAD

  • Once the dough mixture is placed in the oven and nicely baking; the keto French bread baguettes will soon start to rise. So make certain to allow adequate space between them where they sit on the baking tray.
  • Place the keto French bread baguettes into your oven and breath easy for a few minutes as the hard work is mostly done. Now let the breads cook for 10-12 minutes or so.
  • Now reduce the heat in the oven right down to 140- 150 °C/ 290-300 °F (fan assisted), or 170 °C/ 340 °F (for non assisted ovens.)
  • Bake the keto Frech bread baguettes for another 35-40 minutes or so. Note if you elect to make smaller breads then you must reduce the baking time accordingly, just keep checking the oven. The breads should be a golden brown but not too toasted either!
  • Remove the keto French bread baguettes from the oven, let the tray cool down and place the baguettes on a rack to cool down to room temperature. This may take several minutes.
  • You can serve the keto French bread on its own or as a side to something else, the recipe is tasty either way. You can store the breads at room temp for a few days or freeze for longer use. You can freeze the keto French bread baguettes for several months actually.

FRENCH BREAD BAGUETTE SERVING IDEAS

  • Serve these warm fresh breads up on their own, or with your favorite sub meats and protein. Or use the baguettes as a delicious side dish with a yummy keto soup or broth.
  • You might want to consider making the smaller baguettes for soups and the larger ones for subs. So many delicious possibilities with this healthy keto French bread recipe.
