If you’re like most of us, then you probably ate bread almost daily before starting the keto diet. Giving it up is one of our biggest complaints!
The problem is that most bread is high in carbs and contains inflammatory ingredients, such as wheat or enriched flours. What if you could find bread that is nutritious, low-carb, high-fat, and loaded with protein to make a perfect keto snack and go well with your tea and coffee?
Well, this keto collagen bread is exactly that. The collagen protein powder used in this recipe is necessary for the density as well as for revolutionizing your health.
Collagen is a type of protein that is needed for the proper functioning of the whole body. It makes up 25-35% of the protein content in your body. It supports the skin elasticity and helps us look younger.
Research shows that collagen also supports joint health and can be used to treat joint pain and disease (1). This is because collagen is located in your connective tissues and supports your skeletal structure.
According to one study, collagen supplementation can help reduce the risk of joint deterioration in high-risk groups (2). Collagen is also useful for wound healing and skin aging (3).
Collagen can be sourced from marine, chicken, or bovine sources. We recommend going with grass-fed bovine as it contains the largest concentrations of the most types of collagen (there are three types total).
We use Perfect Keto’s Collagen because it contains the best quality hydrolyzed collagen. It is paired with MCTs and gut-healthy acacia fiber, which makes this bread super ketogenic.
We use coconut flour as the base of this bread, along with collagen. Coconut milk is used to help with the consistency since coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture.
Finally, you can garnish your bread with sesame seeds, nuts, or coconut flakes.
If you like it chocolatey, you can add unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate chips in.
Let’s Do It!
Preheat the oven to 325 F.
Combine coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and collagen powder in a bowl. We use this Unflavored Perfect Keto’s Collagen.
In another small bowl, whisk egg yolks, coconut milk, and melted coconut oil together.
In another bowl, beat egg whites until it forms peaks.
Pour the egg yolk mixture into the egg white mixture. Mix well then fold in the collagen-coconut flour mixture. Mix again until incorporated but don’t overmix.
Grease a baking dish (a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan will do) with butter or coconut oil, then transfer the bread batter in and bake for 40 minutes.
Let cool and slice into 10 pieces and serve.
