Keto Microwave Chia Bread
Quick Keto Chia Bread
One of my best keto bread recipes – with no eggy flavour. The secret is sourcing the perfect size dish to microwave it in (cooking takes 90 seconds) and you can make 3 perfect bread slices (which also toast beautifully on the stove top in a tiny dash of oil.)

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place the almond flour, ground chia, baking powder, garlic powder, mustard powder and salt and pepper in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.
  2. IMPORTANT NOTE: I had feedback from a reader who ground whole chia seeds themselves, which subsequently did not work. I strongly advise you use store-bought ready-ground / milled chia which is much finer. Available online (link is on the ingredient, or Holland & Barrett if you are in the UK.)
  3. Combine the dry mixture, then add the whisked eggs to this mixture and combine very well.
  4. Pour the mixture into a greased, microwave-friendly Tupperware. Mine was a small, square Tupperware – similar square dimensions to a slice of bread, approx. 11 x 11cm / 4.3 x 4.3-in.
  5. Place into the microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds, then remove.
  6. Turn the Tupperware out upside down and give it a little knock – it will tip out as a solid mass. If it doesn’t, slide a knife around the edges.
  7. Once cool enough to handle, turn it on its side and slice into 3 even slices.
  8. (If you want to make toast, simply heat a little olive oil in a pan and fry the slices on both sides until crispy.)

Recipe Notes

User feedback informs me that Ground (milled) Flaxseed works just as well if you have no Ground (milled) Chia Seeds on hand. Use whichever suits your budget, and stick to the one you have the most success with. (macros calculated on chia, as per my recipe above). 

Perfect for when the craving for buttered Bovril hits!

Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) – and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
