Low-Carb Sandwich Bread, Quick and Easy

This quick and easy, low-carb sandwich bread may actually have made me the happiest woman on the planet — at least for the moment. It’s bready, chewy, and you make it in two minutes in the microwave.

Low-carb sandwich bread has just a touch over 6 net carbs and has a flavor and texture similar to wheat bread. Gluten free, quick and easy! Find it on lowcarb-ology.com

I know, I know… I am the microwave queen when it comes to low-carb but no one else in my family eats this way and I just don’t have time to spend a couple of hours making something for just me. So, the majority of recipes you are going to find here are those that can be made quickly and easily… and for one person.

Bread. I love bread so much. I’ve been making homemade bread since I was 14 and I am about to be 55 so you do the math. It is relaxing and my family loves it. I get to sit there and smile while they eat it and I get to smell it because… carbs. If a carb was a cartoon character it would look like Snidley Whiplash from the 1960s cartoons.

But I digress.

A lot of times when I cave to carbs it is for a simple sandwich. I could live on them. Yes, I am a food writer. Yes, I have written cookbooks and been invited to amazing restaurants. Yes, I can taste that creamy white asparagus soup once and totally copy it right down to the truffle shavings — but a sandwich?


low-carb sandwich bread is gluten free and easy to make in minutes! Find it on lowcarb-ology.com

Cajun turkey with lettuce, pickles, grainy mustard, and mayo is my favorite but I am not fussy at all. Fresh, sunripe tomatoes on toast with mayo, BLTs, peanut butter and jelly, Pickles and mayo… the list goes on. I literally used to eat Spagettio sandwiches when I was a little kid.

I love sandwiches.

This low-carb sandwich bread works. Make it in the widest mug you have and then let it cool a little before you slice it. I was able to slice it into 4 rounds which made 2 sandwiches — very filling sandwiches. The bread soaked up just enough of the mustard, mayo, and pickle juice to make it perfect.

Low-carb sandwich bread is easy to make in the microwave and is the base for great low carb sandwiches! Find it on lowcarb-ology.com

And it didn’t get soggy.

There’s only one thing better than a sandwich. It’s a perfect piece of toast and, my dear friends, this low-carb sandwich bread makes toast.


I was so excited I checked Amazon for the one thing that would make my life truly complete now that I could eat sandwiches and toast — Low-carb orange marmalade. Like Paddington I have an addiction to marmalade and I have had exactly two tablespoons in the past four years. Two.

The following link is an affiliate link which basically means if you click through and buy I will get a small commission which helps support the blog. Thanks so much! Anyway I didn’t believe it was possible but I found it…Walden Farms 0 carb orange marmalade. I haven’t tried it yet but I will soon and I will let you know!

In the meantime, you need to make this bread because…. sandwiches, people! SANDWICHES!

  1. I AM EXCITED and can’t wait to try this!!!

    • It was soo good. I love sandwiches… but the whole recipe made me too full, you know? Next time I’ll probably only have half.

    • I’m going grocery shopping tomorrow to get the flaxmeal. I have everything else.

      Do you think you could sweeten it up a little bit and use it as a base for strawberries for a low carb strawberry shortcake type deal? Do you have something like that already that I missed?

    • I’d use this recipe for scones and leave the jelly out. https://www.lowcarb-ology.com/low-carb-raspberry-thumbprint-scones/

  2. I recently started eating low carb and I am having a hard time coming up with bread. The stuff you can buy in the store is nasty – and super expensive. I have a similar recipe, but it uses psyllium husk and no almond flour. I love the idea of adding almond flour. I’m definitely going to give this a try and see how we like it.

    • Let me know!

  3. Forgot to ask – can I use whole eggs instead of the egg whites?

    • You *could*. However – the reason I shied away from whole eggs is that I wanted the airiness without the egginess. It has a better texture with just the whites.

  4. So yeah….

    This. Was. Amazing. It was a little on the salty side but I was on the phone with my husband (he’s away on a business trip) and I may have put in twice the amount of salt while not paying attention. It’s hard to say. LOL But even a little on the salty side it was the total awesome! You’ve created magic once again!!!

    • Awww THANKS! just cut back the salt next time. 🙂

  5. Can I use all coconut flour? And is the net carbs per slice? or per recipe? Hopefully not per slice!

    • Per recipe. You can use all coconut flour but the texture will be different. I don’t care for it.

  6. So, I have yet to try a recipe I like with almond or coconut flour! This looks and sounds delicious. i’m just wondering if everyone else typically likes almond/coconut flour? Or am I just weird! I keep being excited about different recipes…try them and then really dislike them 🙁 Just wondering. Hoping to just find a bread recipe I happen to like!

    • Thanks. Let me know what you think!

    • so excited to try this recipe is the 339 calories for all four slices?

    • Yes. 🙂

    • I am finding it is an acquired taste; the baked goods certainly don’t have the fluffiness and volume of wheat flour but I am willing to do almost anything to try to g this weight off.

    • It’s true. They don’t but you do what you can 🙂

  7. How I wish I could buy deflavoured coconut flour! Is it available? I find almond flour very expensive.
    The coconut oil I used is devlavoured and tastes wonderful.

    • I don’t think you can get deflavored coconut flour.

  8. You are amazing! So glad I found you via Pinterest – I have struggled to find anything bread like that I really like the texture of but have just made this and WOW!!!! And yes I have a thyroid problem and diabetes Type 2 so Low Carb is the only way for me too and I love that you do it in one person portions and in a microwave as I too have to cook normally for my kids and hate waste. Brilliant person!!!

    • Thank you Diane!!

  9. Do you have a carb count for this recipe? Love your blog. I live in Texas too!

  10. Can this be made in a regular oven? Not a fan of microwaves.

    • I’ve never tried but I am sure it can.

  11. I tried the Walden’s orange marmalade but it tasted more like orange jello. Unfortunately it tastes nothing like marmalade????. Let me know if you find another low carb marmalade!

    • I will. Most of the low carb jams are just not that great. :/

  12. I only got 3 slices but it’s perfectly okay, folks. Who knows what I did wrong? But the end result was butter on one small piece and then that tiny sandwich of 1/8 banana and almond butter. I almost thought I was back in the real world.
    It satisfied that “sandwich feeling:”. Wish it has been larger, but what the heck!

    • I am so glad! Sometimes if you microwave it too long it shrinks and is a little more dense. OR you may have had a different size cup.

  13. I want to try this, but I am trying to stay away from flax. I know chia seed can be used in place of flax in some recipes, but I’m not sure of the ratio. Do you know if this might work?

    • I really don’t know. :/ I haven’t tried. I imagine if you ground up the chia to a meal it would be similar.

  14. I gave this a try (with a couple of changes) because I wanted to have some bread to dunk in my soup. Yum! I think I might put together little baggies of the mixed dry ingredients to have on hand to make it even easier to whip up. I’m not a fan of coconut flour, so I substituted oat fiber for it and cut the butter to 1 Tbsp. Also, cut the cooking time to 90 seconds. Is it wrong to be in love with this bread?

    • 🙂 so glad you like it!

    • Is oat fiber different than oat flour?

    • I believe so but it’s not called for in this recipe.

  15. Please can you tell me how much 1/4 cup of egg white is? We don’t use cups so is it 1 egg? 2 egg? Half an egg? Thanks!!

    • about 2 large eggs

  16. Isn’t it necessary to wait several minutes after mixing for the coconut flour to soak up any liquids? I always read that this is necessary with coconut flour, but maybe because it’s such a small amount, it doesn’t matter?

    • In this I don’t think it matters but you can if you like. You may need a little extra liquid.

  17. My husband is allergic to almonds so doubled the coconut flour and it’s delicious!!!

    • Great! That’s awesome to know!

  18. Good texture but way to salty.

    • Well, salty is largely opinion. 🙂 It’s always good to use less and adjust up if needed.

  19. Do you have to put flax meal in

    • Yes.

  20. 5 stars
    I love the bread,it’s so tasty & easy. The only issue i have is that it’s too salty, if i reduce the salt do I also reduce the baking powder?

    • No it should be fine.
