With the most popular Keto Farmers Bread we always have in the freezer and making Eggy Bread from time to time, I needed something a bit on a sweeter and softer side. 

Our Italian Breadsticks and Egg-Free Bread Sticks were made with the most popular Fathead dough in mind. 

On the other side, I have also developed a perfect Raw Seed Crackers Bread, using various seeds in our Kitchen Pantry

Sweet Keto Bread Recipes

But I needed something different. I wanted to make Keto Loaf Bread or a bread loaf, which I can then make perfect French toasts. 

And, of course, our Challah Bread came to mind immediately. With a few alterations and a tiny bit different shape, I knew I was into the best High Protein Bread, a perfect copycat of the original French Brioche. And all of that without using Almond Flour. 

Protein Bread

Our Low Carb Bread Recipe is so high in protein that you would not even need to have your protein shake after the exercise. 

All you have to do is take a slice or two of this Low Carb Brioche Bread, and your macros are filled. 

To have a Low Carb High Protein Bread Recipe in the collection has been my aim for a while. 

I needed to get as much protein as possible for my daughter. Certainly without various protein shakes, of course. 

And I am even on the verge of making a Brioche Buns recipe as well. 

And what is a better way to do this? 

Make a Keto-Friendly Bread for a Keto French Toast for Breakfast, and you are good to go. Super easy and super simple. 

Let us start from the beginning.

What is Brioche?

Brioche is a bread loaf that originated in France and is considered more of a pastry for its ingredients. 

It is a bread used mostly for breakfast with butter and jams or simply sprinkled powdered sugar. 

Brioche is the most popular bread for French Toast for its perfect density and remarkable ability to soak the eggs. 

What makes a brioche different from most bread?

The difference in a Brioche compared to regular bread is mostly in its richness. 

As most loaves of bread are only made with a few ingredients apart from flour and water, brioche has an incredible richness in using eggs, butter, and milk or heavy cream in our case. 

Most might even ask if the brioche is considered bread or a cake.

What does Brioche Bread taste like?

Brioche Bread is super soft, fluffy, airy, white, and buttery. It is very rich in taste and spongy, almost like a spongy cake, just on a little less sweet site. 

Its crust is golden brown and perfectly holds that softness inside the loaf.

What does Keto Brioche taste like?

I have to admit, our Low Carb Brioche Bread Recipe is all of the above in taste, richness, softness, sponginess, and all. 

This Low Carb Bread Recipe is soft white bread made with flour alternative, the Whey Protein. 

Its High Protein content is a great advantage for all of us in our keto and low carb lifestyle.

Is Brioche Bread Keto Friendly?

Our homemade brioche loaf recipe for making the brioche bread is certainly keto-friendly without taking away its texture, taste, look, feel, and aroma.

How many carbs are in a brioche?

Keto Brioche Bread has only 2 grams of carbohydrates per loaf, which is pretty thick, as you can see in the pictures. 

Two grams of carbohydrates per portion or a loaf is a great success, giving the thought to the significant similarity or almost copycat of high carbohydrates in a real brioche bread made with ordinary flour. 

What is brioche bread good for?

Brioche Bread is perfect for your breakfast, and that was one of my favorite selections as a kid. All we used to do was sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar on top and enjoy it.

But Brioche is also very popular for making French toast. 

It is the best bread and the most suggested loaf to make the original French toast. 

And next step to it comes French Toast Casserole, which is a perfect dessert option.

You can either use a silicone loaf pan or a normal one covered with parchment paper for easier assembly after baking.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

How do you store Keto Brioche Bread?

I usually store the Keto Bread in the fridge as it contains various fresh ingredients. It should stay in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 

Anything longer, I would suggest freezing. 

Can you freeze Brioche Bread?

You can certainly freeze your brioche bread, and that is what I suggest you do with any of our Keto Breads

It is better if you portion them beforehand for better portion control as a whole loaf would be difficult to thaw and separate if you only need a few slices.

I have a brand new pouch of egg white protein, would that be ok for this bread instead of whey, or is whey protein the only protein powder that can be used here? Thank you!

Dear Annalisa

I do not see why it would not work although I personally have not tried it.

Mary

Friday 20th of May 2022

Can this be done in a bread maker? If so what would be the instruction? Thank you.

Zuzana

Friday 20th of May 2022

I am so sorry Mary, but do not have a bread maker and have not tried it yet that way.

This sounds delicious! I have to try it as I absolutely loved French Brioche with a ton of cold butter on top of it and some hot chocolate in the morning ... many years ago ... bis this fluffy bread since doing keto tbh :D

One question: what is the difference between baking soda and baking powder? I see that there is corn starch in the powder. Can I sub these 12g with something non corn starchy? Like this "Backpulver" aka baking powder

Thank you a lot for all your delicious recipes! Best regards from Austria, Katrin :)

Zuzana

Tuesday 17th of May 2022

You can for sure use Backpulver only

2 cups of protein powder? That would make this bread way out of my price range. Is 2 cups correct?

@Zuzana, Hi This is a great looking recipe I can make this, and share with my husband, no nuts, my only question is, What size a pan would I use, the one you have looks longer than an 9x5 could use kindly let me know, if 9x5 will be okay. Thank you, for all the work, and time you put into making all these recipes for us.

yes, its correct.

As here goes only protein as a flour and no almond flour or coconut flour, it needs to be upped a bit. Therefore you get that great volume and texture.

What size loaf tin did you use please? Mine is 22 x 12 x 6.5cms (8.5 x 4.5 x 2.5”) and the batter is currently pouring over the top and cooking on the base of the oven. It was about 1 centimetre (1/2”) below the rim of the tin prior to baking, as shown in your photograph. I measured each ingredient by weight, not volume. The loaf is now out of the oven and cooling. I’ve peeled the batter mound off the foil lining my oven base, and it tastes delicious 😋

I have used 30x11x6 cm but just because I liked to have more slices but therefore a bit less in hight. It really depends on youo, as long as it fits in not more than 3/4 as it still rises a bit
