Suggested Equipment

4 Mixing Bowls

Ingredients
 

  • Almond Flour (Gluten Free) 1 ½ cup
  • Pork Rinds Crushed (Optional) 5 tablespoon
  • Eggs 6
  • Butter 4 tablespoon
  • Baking Powder 1 tablespoon
  • Dry Active Yeast 1 ½ teaspoon
  • Honey (A small bit of honey to activate the yeast) 1 tablespoon
  • Cheddar Cheese 1 cup

Instructions
 

  • Bloom The Yeast / Activating
    First, add 4 tablespoon of warm water (over 105 degrees and under 110 degrees) to a small bowl and add the dry yeast, plus a small bit of honey.
    The yeast eats sugar and grows. Activating the yeast will help the bread rise and become lighter in texture.
  • Whipping Egg Whites
    Then separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Whip the egg whites with a whisk or electric mixer until they form medium-stiff peaks.
    In the second bowl with the egg yolks, give them a quick whisk to lighten the texture. The yolks will become lighter in color. Next, add the room-temperature melted butter and mix.
  • Combining All The Ingredients
    Next, add the activated yeast to a large mixing bowl. Use the foam on top. Only scrape off the top layer of yeast, the brown foam-looking stuff. 
    Keep some water in the bottom of the bowl in case your bread dough looks too dry. 
    Next, crush the pork rinds into the texture of breadcrumbs. Add 5 tablespoon to the bowl.
  • Almond flour is next, along with all the remaining ingredients. Start by adding one cup of almond flour and mixing. The texture will look dry. 
    Then add in ⅓ of the whipped egg whites (might need to whip egg whites again to add some air back in). 
    Note: The egg whites are the only addition of moisture. 
    Mix in the whipped egg whites with the almond flour and dry ingredients, adding a third at a time. Combine well while keeping the whipped volume in the egg whites. Use a gentle folding technique.

Baking The Bread

  • Spray your bread loaf pan with non-stick spray and add bread dough to pan.
    Tap the pan against the table a few times removing extra air pockets.
    Bake @ 375 for 30 minutes.
    Allow the bread to cool for 4 to 5 minutes before cutting into it.

Notes

What is the Keto Diet?

The keto diet, or ketogenic diet, is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn ketones for energy instead of glucose. This makes it a very effective way to lose weight, but it can also be difficult to stick to. You need to know a few key things before starting the keto diet.
First, you need to make sure you're eating enough fat. On the keto diet, fat provides energy and helps keep you feeling full. Without enough fat, you may feel tired or experience cravings. Second, you need to watch your carb intake. Too many carbs can kick you out of ketosis and make it harder to lose weight. Third, you need to stay hydrated. When your body is in ketosis, it releases toxins called ketones into the bloodstream. These can make you feel nauseous and cause headaches. Drinking plenty of water helps flush the ketones out of your system.
If you're thinking about starting the keto diet, be sure to talk to your doctor first. They can help you make sure it's the right decision for you and give you tips on how to get started. With a little planning and preparation, the keto diet can help you lose weight and improve your health.
