90 Second Low Carb Keto Bread

The new low-carb diet du jour is called keto, as in ketogenic. Although there are many similarities between these diets, a keto diet is all about restricting carbohydrates and increasing healthy fats. The goal is to force your body's metabolism into ketosis, which means it burns fat instead of glucose — because without carbs, glucose isn't readily available.


Ingredients:


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon almond or hazelnut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch salt

Optional add-ins:

  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced scallions or herbs

Instructions:



  1. Whisk the egg, milk, oil, coconut flour, nut flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl. Add the cheese and scallions or herbs, if using, and stir to combine.
  2. Pour into a tall microwave-safe mug and tap the bottom firmly on the counter a few times to force any air bubbles to rise and pop. Microwave on high for 1 minute, 30 seconds.
  3. Invert mug onto a cutting board and let the bread slide out. Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. To toast, heat a teaspoon of oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the slices and toast until golden-brown, about 30 seconds per side.
