Keto Blueberry Bread Ingredients
This almond flour blueberry bread needs only a few low carb ingredients, a small loaf pan, and an oven to bake it. These are all the ingredients you’ll need:
- Eggs – It’s best to use large eggs at room temperature.
- Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – We are using a combo of these two low carb flours to get the perfect bread texture. I recommend using both flours in this specific recipe.
- Blueberries – My favorite low carb fruit to use in this keto pound cake. You can use strawberries, and raspberries. Fresh or Frozen? Both are perfect!
- Sweetener – Erythritol is the best sweetener because it’s cheap, low in carbs, and doesn’t impact blood sugar. Monk Fruit sweetener it’s also great in this recipe, and it has no aftertaste.
- Heavy Cream or Coconut Cream – For a dairy-free gluten-free blueberry bread, use coconut cream (the canned one). It’s as creamy as heavy cream, and you’ll make a delicious paleo blueberry bread.
- Vanilla Extract & Baking Powder – 2 ingredients that never miss from my keto baked goods. One adds tons of flavor, and the other one is a leavening agent that makes the bread super airy and delicious.
How to Make Keto Blueberry Bread
It’s super easy to make homemade keto blueberry bread once you gather all the ingredients. I’m pretty sure you have most of them already.
Start by combining the eggs in a large bowl with the sweetener, heavy cream, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix for a few minutes until frothy.
Combine the low carb flours, and baking powder. Mix in the egg mixture and stir using a spatula until smooth.
Incorporate the juicy blueberries. You can add more blueberries or substitute them with fresh raspberries.
Transfer the batter to a greased small loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
Keto Cream Cheese Lemon Frosting
To make a delicious lemon frosting for this blueberry pound cake, you’ll need 6 ingredients. It’s so easy and delicious. Here are the ingredients:
- 4 oz Cream cheese, softened
- 2 tbsp butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup Powdered Erythritol
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tbsp Heavy cream
- 2 tbsp lemon juice + 1 tbsp lemon zest
In a big bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. This should take about 1-2 minutes.
Turn the mixer off and add the powdered sweetener, vanilla, lemon juice, lemon zest, and heavy cream. Continue mixing until well incorporated. For a thicker keto cream cheese frosting, add more cream cheese.
Tips and Variations To Make The Best Almond Blueberry Bread
- Allow the bread to cool before frosting, otherwise it’s going to melt in contact with the warm surface.
- Try not to overbake the almond flour lemon blueberry bread because it continues to cook as it cools down. Overcooked keto blueberry bread is often dry and has an eggy taste.
- Turn the batter into keto blueberry muffins if you prefer making muffins.
- To keep the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the pan, coat them in coconut flour before mixing them into the batter.
- The batter is slightly thick, and that’s normal. So, use a spatula to smooth out the tops.
Troubleshooting Common Problems
While making keto blueberry bread, you may encounter a few common problems. Here are some troubleshooting tips to help you overcome them:
- Bread is too dry: If your keto blueberry bread turns out too dry, it could be due to overbaking or the quantity of the liquid used was too low.
- Bread is too moist: If your keto blueberry bread turns out too moist or dense, adjust the baking time.
- Bread doesn’t rise: If your keto blueberry bread doesn’t rise properly, it could be because the baking powder is old or expired. Make sure to use fresh baking powder and mix it thoroughly into the batter.
- Bread is too brown on the outside: If your keto blueberry bread is browning too quickly on the outside, but still not cooked through in the middle, reduce the temperature and cover it with aluminum foil.
- Bread doesn’t hold together: If your keto blueberry bread falls apart or crumbles easily, it could be because it needs to cool completely before slicing.
