Easy Low Carb Almond Loaf

This is a healthy, quick and easy Almond Loaf.

I use almond meal instead of plain flour which reduces the carb content and I use honey instead of sugar, making it so much healthier.

If you are new to low-carb baking, using almond meal is quite easy to begin with. But you have to remember that unlike regular flour, almond flour does not hold its structure as well because of the absence of gluten.

The eggs added provide that structure, air for fluffiness and some protein as well.

I have not used any butter or oil in it. I wanted to keep the fat content low. Adding butter or oil will keep the loaf soft for longer. Since I did not use any, I made a small loaf that will probably finish in a day or two.

These tastes delicious with a smear of butter or almond butter on it.

Ingredients

Eggs – 2 large

Honey – ¼ cup

Almond meal – 1 cup

Milk – 1 tablespoon

Baking Powder – a pinch


Method

  1. Separate the egg yolks, pour the honey and whisk the yolks and honey together till they are pale.
  2. To this, add the almond meal and baking powder and incorporate well. Add the milk if it is too thick.
  3. Whisk the egg whites separately till they form soft peaks.
  4. Add the whisked egg whites to the egg and almond meal mix. Fold gently, do not over mix to ensure that it does not lose all the air in the mix.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased and lined loaf tin, sprinkle slivered almonds on top and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 20-25 mins.

Enjoy!!!!

  1. Thank you for sharing! My husband and I have had a long battle regarding our diet. We constantly go back and forth. We need to lose weight, yet we like to eat sweets. And one problem we had with the Keto diet in the past was that he would get cramps in his legs at night, which of course neither of us want to happen. Plus with the holidays coming up, it’s when all the goodies come out! So that makes it more difficult… Anyway, I was thinking this morning that I need to eat better even if he doesn’t. And then what do I find in my inbox? A yummy and healthy recipe from you! So thank you for helping steer me in the right direction!

    1. Aww thank you for your kind words.
      I have been trying to eat healthy too and hence the making of all these recipes where I substitute stuff in the quest to get healthier. I don’t follow the keto diet strictly, I prefer to just go low carb and no sugar but I do eat more carbs than what would qualify for a keto diet.
      Hope you enjoy this loaf if you try it out.

    1. It is quite good but obviously does not taste like a regular loaf with flour and butter and sugar. But it is so much healthier. And we do get accustomed to the taste of less sugar and low carbs as we have it on a regular basis.
      Thankyou Dawn.

      1. You’re welcome! Like you mentioned, I think when it comes to any healthier eating, it’s just a matter of getting accustomed to the taste.
