Single Serving Keto Bread (Dairy Free, Paleo, Low Carb)

Sometimes you just need a slice…

This recipe was born a “mug cake” but evolved into a baked bread recipe and it just works. This single serving keto bread is so legit. You can make it in the microwave or you can make it in the oven, honestly both turn out great. All you need is a small container, 7×7 pyrex works well, and 5 ingredients. 

It’s definitely not a low-calorie bread, but made with whole food ingredients, go ahead… say yes to the bread! 

Avocado toast is back baby! I love it with scrambled eggs and some berries. Also great toasted and just eaten alone or with a cup of coffee. MmmMmmM… Low Carb, High Fat for the win!

I have not tried this single serving keto bread with other flours, sorry! 

But ghee, softened butter or coconut all work for the fat in this recipe. 

Blanched almond meal works best, for a soft, white bread, but you can use regular almond meal (almonds ground with the skin on) for a “whole wheat” bread look and feel. 

If you make this single serving keto bread share the love!

Low Carb Single Serving Bread (Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Keto)


  • 4 rounded tbsp fine ground almond meal
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp fat (melted coconut oil, olive oil, bacon fat etc)
  • 2 tbsp water (a splash more if the mix seems thick)


  1. In a small, shallow microwave safe container whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda.
  2. Make a well in the center and crack an egg open into it.
  3. Whisk well, then add in the fat and water while you continue whisking.
  4. Once it becomes frothy start making bigger circles with your whisk or fork to incorporate the flour mix.
  5. Mix well, getting all the edges and sides. You can use a spatula to make sure you have it all mixed in.
  6. Tap the container down on the counter to settle the mix.
  7. Microwave on high for 90 seconds, or until the center is cooked (add cooking time in 30 second intervals).
  8. If you’re baking it, use a glass dish, and bake at 350F (or 325F convection) for 20 minutes.
  9. Run a spatula around the edges to separate and remove it from the container.
  10. Pop it in the toaster for 3-4 minutes until crisp.
  11. Top with yummy things, enjoy

  1. Any ideas on substituting coconut four? Or any guess on starting point for substituting if we’re going to experiment?

    1. Not sure it would work as well… you would need to start with VERY little coconut flour. Rule of thumb when using coconut flour you need 1/3 of the amount of regular or nut flour used.

  2. I made this and the flavor was great!

    The texture seemed a bit off, but I may have not done this correctly. Was your “batter” before it baked really soupy? If not, what was the consistency?

    Thanks so much! Love your recipes!

    1. Honestly, it’s been ages since I made this since I can no longer eat the almond meal with frequency, I don’t fully remember. But I will since the instructions say to tap down the container, the batter should probably be thick. If yours was soupy, next time add less water.
