90 Seconds Low Carb Keto Quick Bread

If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember that I shared some pictures and videos of this 90 Seconds Low Carb Keto Quick Bread for a few times when I was testing out the recipe.  Well, it's finally here and I am super excited.  Thank you for your patience if you're one of the many that requested this recipe.

Every since I cut down on sugar and carbs after my breast cancer diagnoses last year, I had been testing out new ingredients and different ways to prepare old recipes that I love with healthier alternatives.  This 90 Seconds Low Carb Keto Quick Bread is one of them.  It doesn't contain any refine sugar, it's flour free, and it's gluten free.  Best of all, my kids are loving it too.

Best the fact that this bread tastes great, I also love how easy and quick it is to put together.  And as you can tell in my video, my kids enjoyed making this quick bread too.  This bread is made in a coffee mug in the microwave.  In my video tutorial, I shared some tips and what coffee mug (in terms of sizes) to use as well.  I'll list those information and mug size at the end of this post for your reference.

This quick bread doesn't contain any flour. Instead, I used almond flour as the main ingredient.  Please make sure to use almond flour from blenched almonds and not almond meal.  The texture of almond flour is more tender and smooth because the almond skin is removed.

The texture of this bread might not be exactly like your traditional sandwich bread.  I find it similar to a sponge cake actually.  However, giving the fact that it's so easy to make and only includes healthy ingredients, I would choose this bread, any day that I crave for a slice of bread or toast. 

This quick bread is wonderful for sandwiches, it also toast up nicely.  You do get a hint of nutty flavor after toasting because of the almond flour, which is quite a nice addition to the crunchy texture.  Next, I'm planning to cut this bread into cubes and give them a quick toast and turn them into croutons for salads!  I will share a picture on my Instagram when I do that.  

My daughter loves to use this bread to replace her bagel! Spread a little bit cream cheese, a couple of smoked salmon, top it with capers, chives, and dill and you get a gourmet Open-Face Smoked Salmon Sandwich!  Boy, what a foodie!  I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! 

From this picture above, you see the 2 different sized of bread I made using different diameter coffee mugs.  I think the small one is perfect for party food and snacks while the bigger ones are perfect for sandwiches.  If you try this recipe, please kindly leave me a message and let me know how it goes.  Thank you for stopping by today and stay tuned for more delicious and healthy recipes soon.

90 Seconds Low Carb Keto Quick Bread:
1 tablespoon organic unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon 1 to 1 monkfruit sweetener sugar substitute
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 large organic egg
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (omit if you use salted butter)

Place butter in a microwave safe coffee mug.  Melt butter in the microwave on high heat for 30 seconds.  Give it a quick whisk to make sure it's all melted.

Next, add monkfruit sweetener, almond flour, baking powder, egg, and kosher salt into the mug.  Whisk until all the ingredients are well incorporated.  It will look like cupcake batter.

Heat it in the microwave on high for 90 seconds (=1 1/2 minutes).  Let it cool down slightly in the mug.  When it's cool enough to handle, run a knife around the edges and the bread will slide right out.  Slice them into desire thickness and enjoy.
