One of the things that most everybody struggles with on keto is not having bread. Bread is inherently high in carbs, and it’s very challenging to find a decent keto bread recipe that tastes good and easy to make.

  1. I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but why no zero-carb sweetener (stevia, erytritol, …) ? Also there is nothing in here to add sufficient liquid to provide moistness and enhance flavor. I would suggest bananas or other fruit but this would raise the carb count. So instead how about almond milk?
