Most people have a hard time eliminating bread from their diet when switching to a low carb, ketogenic diet. This bread helps in the transition phase, especially for those who are sensitive to nuts and is also allergic to coconut.
This keto sesame flour bread is made without xanthan gum because that many people couldn’t find this ingredient when making my famous keto bread recipe. It’s getting harder to find now, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to eliminate it completely.
Nut Free Keto Bread
Sesame flour is easiest to make your self. If you have a coffee grinder, food processor or any other high-speed blender, you’ll be able to make sesame seed flour. It doesn’t require too much flour, so purchasing enough sesame seeds shouldn’t be a problem.
This bread can also be made in a bread maker, which is fantastic. All of my keto loaves of bread have had great success in being made in a bread machine.
This bread is even softer and fluffier than the almond flour bread, as sesame seeds are might lighter when ground into a flour. It’s the perfect replication of real bread in keto form.

WHAT IS KETO BREAD?
Keto bread is a mixture of almond flour (or sesame/coconut flour), eggs and healthy fats. It resembles normal wheat bread in texture but has about 20 times fewer carbs than regular bread.
HOW MANY SERVINGS ARE IN THIS LOAF?
For those who are confused about the serving size, the bread should make 16 slices, and the nutritional information is 2 of those 16 slices. In simple terms, 2 slices = 1 serving. The whole loaf makes 16 slices total.
CAN THIS KETO BREAD BE MADE DAIRY FREE?
Yes – just add 1/2 cup olive oil instead of the butter. This will give you a very similar result.
IF I AM ALLERGIC TO NUTS, IS THIS BREAD GOING TO BE OKAY?
Yes, of course! Most people who are allergic to nuts can tolerate sesame seeds. Generally, most people avoid coconut (which isn’t actually a nut, its a drupe) but sesame seeds are in the clear for most people.
HOW DO I STORE KETO BREAD?
I usually slice it up, then place the sliced pieces into 2 plastic containers. Keep 1 container in the fridge, and 1 container in the freezer for next week.
HOW MANY CARBS IN KETO BREAD?
This ketogenic bread recipe only has 1g of net carbs. WHAT? that’s crazy! Net carbs are total carbs minus fibre and are how most people following the ketogenic diet will count their carbohydrates.
Sesame Seed Keto Bread
- 2 Cups Sesame Seed Flour (Ground up sesame seeds work best) 200g / 7 oz
- 7 Large Eggs
- ½ Cup unsalted butter melted 120g / 4 oz
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Preheat your oven to 180C (355F)
- In a large bowl, separate the egg yolks from the egg whites, beating the egg whites with an electric mixer until white and fluffy.
- In another bowl, mix together the melted butter, egg yolks, sesame seed flour, salt and baking powder.
- Gently fold the now complete egg yolk mixture into the egg whites, and gently mix together until it forms a uniform colour.
- In a bread loaf tin lined with baking paper, pour the mixture in and bake for 45 mins, checking the centre of the loaf with a skewer to ensure that its done.
- **To avoid cracking on the top of the loaf, place an ovenproof bowl of water in with the bread. This will ensure that the top of the bread loaf doesn’t crack and stays in tact**
