This keto egg loaf recipe is probably the easiest keto loaf you’ll ever make. It’s creamy, tastes like French toast and is super delicious with a cold glass of almond milk and a small amount of melted butter.
What Is Keto Egg Loaf?
Keto egg loaf is a simple, slightly sweet loaf of “bread” that is light and fluffy and tastes great with sugar-free maple syrup. Think of it as a healthy, keto substitute for French toast.
This loaf is different from your typical keto bread since it mainly consists of eggs, cream cheese and butter.
It’s sweet, fluffy and spongy, almost like a slice of fresh white bread, just without all the carbohydrates.
I baked this in an 8″ X 4″ (20 cm x 10 cm) loaf tin. You could definitely double this recipe and make a super high loaf with a rounded top almost like tip top white.
