Flourless Chocolate Almond Butter Bread (Keto + Paleo)


Bread is always a good idea, especially my new Flourless Chocolate Almond Butter Bread. It requires minimal ingredients and will easily become your new favorite recipe. To make it even better, it is Keto, Paleo and gluten free. Each slice only has 6 NET Carbs.

I’m sure you may be a little skeptical on how this bread turns out so perfect without using flour. Trust me, you will never be able to tell. It is super moist and the texture is spot on. Not only is this one of my favorite recipes, but my husband along with my kids love this as breakfast or dessert.

Just to be safe, you may want to make 2 loaves and freeze one. As soon as I take one loaf out of the oven, it will begin within minutes. Making a back up loaf is always a smart decision. I will slice and place in plastic wrap and put in the freezer for up to 3 months. I will simply remove and thaw a slice whenever I have a craving hit. It’s the perfect treat to keep on hand that will allow you to stick with your health goals.

  • Would your sub coconut sugar for monk fruit sweetener 1:1?

    • Yes.

  • Just made this but used peanut butter instead of almond butter as it’s all I had on hand. It is a 10/10!! So delicious and the perfect little treat! I’m definitely making a second loaf!

    • Yay. This makes me so happy. Yes I have also used peanut butter and my husband really
      loved it.

  • So excited to make this for my friend who is diabetic for her birthday!!!! It’s in the oven now and I can say the batter tastes amazing 🙂
    I also wanted to share how much I enjoy your posts and stories. Don’t let the haters get you down. Your authentic joy is contagious and spills out to your family and fans. Thank you for sharing your gifts with all of us!

    • Lisa, you are precious. Thank you so much for your kind words.

  • Just made this and the knife is not coming out clean after 25 mins. Should I leave it longer?

    • Yes. All ovens cook differently. I would leave it in a little longer.

  • This is currently in the oven – I used half almond butter and half cashew butter because it’s all I had. It was super simple! One question – what type of chocolate chips did you use to count the net carbs? I used Lily’s which is only 1 net carb per serving vs enjoy life which is 8. Just trying to figure out if maybe I saved myself some carbs or not. Haha

    • Hi honey. I used enjoy life, so you probably did save carbs.

  • Thanks for the delicious recipe. Even my husband, who is a huge critic of anything good for you, likes this one!

    • I am so happy to hear! My husband is the same way and will eat this bread up too. Thank you for your review

  • Just cooled this enough to slice a piece and it’s so yummy! Can’t wait to have some with coffee in the morning 💗

    • This makes me so happy. Pairing it with coffee is the absolute best.

  • Holy schnikes, this is delicious! I used sugar instead of monk fruit and it wasn’t too sweet. Looking forward to having it for breakfast on a kayaking trip this weekend in Alaska.

    • Hi Rachel…….so thrilled the “Almond Butter Bread” was a hit and is a trip breakfast must. Have a fantastic time in Alaska. I hear its a bucket list absolute;-)

  • Can’t wait to bake this over the weekend! Sounds delicious!

  • I have a lot of Xylitol. How much should I use, and, since it doesn’t melt/mix well, what’s the best way of incorporating it into the ingredients? Thank you!

    • Hi Carol. This isn’t something I use so I am really not sure how to use it. So sorry I couldn’t be more help.

  • Made this today for the first time. My cook time did not come out to 30 min but more. I believe it was due to the chocolate chips I used, didn’t have mini and used regular. After 27 min there was still a giggle in the middle, and it already split. Not sure what I did wrong except the chips. I just tried it and it is very good, just not as moist as I was expecting. I may have over cooked :(. Will try again as I am so looking for a good snack, morning bite to kill my sweet cravings….

    • So sorry to hear that. Do remember that everyone’s ovens cooks differently. Always feel free to change the time as needed. This is my all time favorite treat. So moist and delicious. Thanks!
