Keto Fathead Bread came to mind last week when Mrs. CBB wanted to make keto bagels.
Later in the evening, we didn’t have the energy to roll and cause holes to form bagels.
Instead, we took the lazy route and created a small football and turned it into fathead bread.
Although we were skeptical, the bread turned out fantastic. You’ll love it.
Let me show you how we made it.
What Is Keto Fathead Bread?
Fathead dough is a mixture of eggs, almond flour and other common baking ingredients that most people have in their keto pantry,
You’ll find that the keto fathead bread is a bit heavy, as you’d find with the keto bagels.
There’s nothing wrong with that at all, especially if you toast it with butter or make French toast.
What I enjoy doing is adding my homemade keto sugar-free maple syrup over the top.
I’m not trying to tease you, but it’s delicious and costs far less than what you buy at Costco.
You can find an extensive list of keto products we’ve seen at Costco, and two loaves of keto bread cost $8.99.
Control What You Eat And How It’s Made
What I like about making keto fathead bread is that I’m in control of the ingredients.
For example, for this fathead bread, I chopped garlic and added it to the dough.
I specifically made this fathead bread savoury so we could dip it in our tomato salad juice.
On days in a rush, we take two slices and add cheddar cheese and tuna salad.
If there are two keto recipes always in our refrigerator, it’s egg salad and tuna salad.
You’ll also find cold coffee to make keto iced coffee and hard-boiled eggs.
Other Recipes We Make Using Fathead Dough
You can also use this simple fat-head low-carb, keto-friendly dough to make these recipes below.

- Anything that requires a low carb/Keto Fathead dough
I might have layered the butter on a bit thick, but I’m British, and we love our butter.
Another reason why we enjoy keto fathead bread because you don’t get a big slice of bread.
If you want a more significant piece of bread, all you do is shape the fathead dough higher before baking it.
You’ll get fewer slices, but if you want big, form it big and enjoy it.
We store our keto fathead bread in the refrigerator as we left it out once, and it went mouldy.
My suggestion is to refrigerate it once it’s cooled down or freeze it if you make loaves in advance.
Adding Seeds Over Top
The last thing to consider is whether you want a topping such as sesame seeds, poppy seeds etc.
Sometimes I brush egg whites over the loaf of bread and other times a bit of water.
Either way works if you plan on adding seeds to the top of the keto fathead bread.
If you use egg or egg whites, you’ll find that the loaf will be a yellowish colour.

Keto Fathead Bread Ingredients

Instructions To Make Keto Fathead Bread
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or prep your pizza stone for the oven
- In a large bowl add your dry ingredients then mix
- Using a medium bowl crack your eggs and beat them.
- In microwave-safe, medium-sized bowl add the shredded mozzarella cheese and softened cream cheese cubes.
- Microwave the cheese mixture on high until melted completely for about 2 minutes.
- Move fast
- Start by mixing the cheese up while it’s hot and pouring it into the dry mixture bowl.
- Slowly start adding the eggs and mixing quickly until you form a dough ball
- Knead the dough until everything is combined and shape it into a loaf of bread.
- Let rest in the bowl for 5 minutes covered with a tea-towel and sat on your stove-top or counter-top where it’s warm.
- Brush with a bit of water and sprinkle toasted sesame seeds (Optional)
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (add tinfoil lightly over the top if it browns too quickly)
- Remove from oven and let it sit for 10 minutes.
- Slice it and add anything you want to it. We like to toast it and add butter, sugar-free jam and peanut butter.
Either way, this keto bread makes a great snack and an even better sandwich toasted or fresh.
