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.

Ingredients:

350 g Curd / Quark (it needs to be the one without particles)
150 g Yoghurt 10 % Fat
4 Eggs
2 tbsp Vinegar
100 ml Water
1,5 tsp salt
120 g Dietary potato fibre
30 g psyllium husk powder
1 pkt. Baking Soda (15g)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 °C (Air Circulation Oven), 200 ° C (Normal electric oven).
  2. Make sure all ingredients have room temperature and mix curd / quark, eggs, vinegar, water and salt with a mix to a creamy batter.
  3. 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.
  4. Let the batter rest until the oven has reached the target temperature.
  5. Form a loaf of bread on a piece of baking paper.
  6. You can add some topping with potato dietary fibre to the bread, same effect as flour on usual bread.
  7. Let the bread bake 60-70 minutes.
  8. After giving the bread some time to cool (1.5 hours), it is ready to eat.

  2. Hi Gerhard,

    great to hear. Appreciate your feedback.

    I noted lately that in the US there might not be the Potato Dietary Fibre available, but there is a pretty much similar subsitute, being Oats Dietary Fibre, which can be used as 1-2-1 replacement.

    Hope it helps.
    Cheers

    1. Hi Gerhard,

      This is fabulous feedback. I’m making this bread continuously for the family in the last couple of months, as everyone really likes it. It’s cool to get appreciation and insights on the way, especially as there is always lots of trial and error involved finding a perfect balance in recipes as such.

      Take care and hope you’ll find some more inspiration on our blog.

      Cheers
      Cee Kay.
