Being well arranged with my keto lifestyle and the diet associated, usually I´m not missing many foods. Ok, chocolate from time to time, and of course bread. So, I thought with the baking I´m anyways doing, there must be a way to find a good very low carb bread recipe, that even tastes good and is close enough to the usual carb filled bread. And I found a loophole!
I had found some low carb sites that are exactly addressing the gap, where almost everyone being on a ketogenic journey, misses bread from time to time. The solution to the problem is called: Dietary Potato Fibre, which is in essence potato flour, but with all the starches removed, leaving mostly dietary fibre as a binder for a good batter.
The bread tastes almost as if it was made from sourdough and has a nice consistency. It is based on curd / quark, Yoghurt and needs psyllium husk powder, which I have already used in other batter / doughs.

- Preheat oven to 175 °C (Air Circulation Oven), 200 ° C (Normal electric oven).
- Make sure all ingredients have room temperature and mix curd / quark, eggs, vinegar, water and salt with a mix to a creamy batter.
- Mix the dietary potato fibre, psyllium husk powder and baking soda very well in a seperate bowl and then shortly whisk all ingredients in a bowl to a batter.
- Let the batter rest until the oven has reached the target temperature.
- Form a loaf of bread on a piece of baking paper.
- You can add some topping with potato dietary fibre to the bread, same effect as flour on usual bread.
- Let the bread bake 60-70 minutes.
- After giving the bread some time to cool (1.5 hours), it is ready to eat.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and the bread. Let me know if you were able to succeed with this recipe.
