A big part of the keto diet is eliminating carbs from your intake, which usually results in avoiding bread altogether. This often leads to cravings for bread, which unfortunately can’t be easily solved as most store-bought breads are not keto-friendly.

What most people don’t know is that it is possible to make bread that is keto-friendly. There are many homemade breads that can be easily incorporated into your keto diet. Whether it’s for sandwiches for lunch at work or an indulgent breakfast for your weekend, here are 8 keto recipes that use bread.

1. Keto Cuban Sandwich

Let’s kick this list off with a sandwich option. The filling for the sandwich itself is straightforward: ham, pickles, and cheese. Most of this recipe is actually just making the bread itself. The dough is easy to make and only takes 15 minutes to bake.

The trick for the dough is cheese. It sounds a little weird but the use of cheese is what helps the dough get its wetness and shape. You can easily mold the bread into any shape you prefer. Once the bread is baked, all you need to do is assemble the sandwich.

2. BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

If you’re a more experienced chef or just want to learn more keto recipes in general, this sandwich is a great learning opportunity. Each component of the sandwich is a recipe in of itself and all of it is keto, including the bread.

This recipe includes instructions for making your own keto bread, slow cooker BBQ pulled pork, cucumber dill broccoli slaw, and pickled red onions. You can also easily adjust this recipe to make it into a sloppy joe too!

3. Keto French Toast

Switching over to breakfast, French toast is one of the bigger cravings for those on the keto diet. Fortunately, you can easily recreate soft, pillowy French toast at home. The process is actually a lot closer to normal French toast than you’d think. The biggest adjustments are keto-friendly bread and sugar-free sweeteners.

This recipe includes a couple of store-bought keto bread options for those who don’t have the time to make homemade bread. It also includes several options for sugar-free sweeteners. Be sure to use low-carb milk too!

4. Avocado Toast with Egg

If you need a quick and easy breakfast, this recipe is one of the best options out there. The homemade bread takes 90 seconds to make and all you need is your microwave. Top it off with an egg and avocado and you’ve got an amazing, filling breakfast.

The avocado mash and the egg can be cooked any way you like. You can make soft-boiled or poached eggs. The avocados can be mashed into a spread or sliced. If you have a store-bought keto bread you like, feel free to use that too to make this recipe even faster.

5. Keto Breakfast Strata

This recipe is perfect for those who don’t want to make breakfast the morning of. Breakfast strata is a make-ahead dish that you can easily slice and warm up in the morning. It also makes a fabulous weekend brunch.

For the bread, you can make your own or use a store-bought keto brand. Better yet, if you keep a homemade loaf of keto bread in your freezer, you can use it for this recipe! This recipe uses older, more stale bread so if you’ve got keto bread leftover and aren’t sure what to do with it, this recipe is the way to go.

6. Keto Cinnamon Rolls

For a final breakfast option, here’s a great way to satisfy your bread cravings. Most people think you can’t have cinnamon rolls on a keto diet but it’s actually easier than you’d think. Not only are these cinnamon rolls yeast-free but they also only take 20 minutes to make.

This recipe will walk you through each step in detail, from making the dough to the filling to the frosting. You can even make these the night before and just pop them in the oven the morning of. The best part is these rolls only have 2 grams of carbs.
