Mug Bread (Gluten-Free)

A bread made from egg, almond flour, flax (flour), quickly made in the microwave.

From time to time I need to have a “bread” that is not really a bread, if you know what I mean. I’ve been doing the keto diet for the past month or so and finally got to the point I “needed” some bread.Mug Bread ~

Thankfully this is not a new scenario for me and I was able to go and dig into my hCG recipes for this, very simple, quick and easy bread that is made in the microwave in just 70 seconds. :)

I have a friend that needs this right now too, so I’m sharing it here for her future reference, as well as my own. ;)

You need just a few ingredients. If you make anything gluten-free from scratch, you probably already have some of these items.

Mug Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.meCombine all ingredients in a mini food processor, magic bullet, blender, or mix in the actual baking container with either a immersion blender or your own arm power and a whisk. Tiffany chooses the later but I go ahead and get out the mini processor.

Mug Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.mePop it into the microwave for 70 seconds. (I go through spells where I don’t use the microwave for long spells and then want it again for a few things. I have not figured out how to make this without using the microwave, although I figure it’s got to work in the oven; I just don’t know how long it would need to cook.)

Mug Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.meI loosen it around the sides with a small rubber spatula/scraper and turn it out onto a plat or cutting board.

Mug Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.meWhen cut in half horizontally, this makes two rather thick pieces of “bread”; so I cut it into three slices. Then I love to make a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich with two of the slices and a piece of toast with the last. :)

I like to toast it.

  1. Very nice bread. I am not doing keto and I have a lot of food sensitivities so I adapted the recipe. Instead of flaxseed I used psyllium husk powder, added extra water and baked it at 350 for 20 minutes. It came out very nicely. Next time though I’ll add a little salt or something since the psyllium seed doesn’t give it much flavor. It will make a nice sandwich bread for me. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
