If there’s one clear message about the Ketogenic diet, it’s that you need to avoid carbs…big time. Enjoying less than 25 grams of carbs per day (which, btw – is about one dinner roll) is a challenge for many, and most definitely a period of adjustment as you enter into any low-carb lifestyle.

So what do most Keto-dieters miss the most?

Um, bread. 

However, there’s a loophole…and it takes only a few ingredients, a mug, and one minute in the microwave.

This must be low-carb heaven. 

Upon first making it, you’ll be shocked at its dense bread-like texture, and how quickly you can whip it up when needed. It’s perfectly round in size, making it the perfect replacement for a breakfast sandwich English muffin, or a burger bun.

You might be wondering how the heck this even works…but with almond flour (finely ground almonds), an egg, oil, and some baking powder to help it rise – this is sliceable, hearty bread that you’re 100% allowed to enjoy on the keto diet. Not only is it low-carb, but it’s packed with healthy fats and proteins. Have a craving for more delicious keto treats? Check out the Absolute Best Snacks To Try On The Keto Diet!
