So, my hubby is back on Keto…again. I know Keto is the new, awesome diet to be on but you won’t find me leaping for joy in the kitchen. Vegetarian fantastic, Paleo, great! But Keto? Blah…there is not much culinary creativity with Keto. So for all of you out there that are wanting something a little different than bacon and cauliflower, this bread might come in handy.
A good friend shared this recipe with me but her’s had vanilla and cinnamon. She said it tastes like french toast but I don’t believe her. haha. I have found that eggy type breads are better dressed up in more savory flavors so I adapted this recipe using herbs. I was pleasantly surprised! Between the herbs and the cream cheese, this bread didn’t turn out as eggy as I thought it was going to be. I think it actually is pretty good!
- 8 oz softened full fat cream cheese
- 4 Tbsp softened butter
- 8 eggs
- 6 Tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 heaping tsp dried parsley
- 1 heaping tsp dried chives
- 1 heaping tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth.
- Add everything else and mix until well combined.
- Pour into a standard loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
- Bake 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until firm.
Cost: Not only is this recipe easy to whip up, but it uses ingredients that I always seem to have on hand. Here is the price breakdown.
- cream cheese: $1.29
- 1 dozen eggs: $0.85– 8 eggs: $0.56
- 1 lb butter: $1.99– 4 Tbsp: $0.25
- herbs, salt, baking powder: Too little to say. Maybe $0.50?
Total Estimate: less than $3
So there you have it! Try to be creative with it. Make a little BLT, top it with avocado, toast it with some Parmesan cheese, make cucumber sandwiches…
And please let me know if you have any easy, creative Keto ideas. This wife is at a loss.
