This Vegan Low Carb Bread is the bread of bread. This gluten-free recipe is a protein and fibre-packed bread recipe rich in healthy nutrients. The soft texture with a lightly crispy crust makes this low carb bread excellent for sandwiches.

This grain-free bread is easy to slice, and it is moist with a hint of sesame flavour. I promise you, this vegan bread is addictively delicious!

If you are counting carbs, we have great news! Each slice of this gluten-free bread has about 4 grams of net carbs and is acceptable on a keto diet.

The key ingredients in this grain-free bread are almond flour, cassava flour, flaxseed, psyllium husk, and sesame seeds keeping this bread super healthy.

For moistness, a splash of extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar. To keep this bread light and yeast free, I used baking powder mixed with baking soda.

I always wanted to create a bread recipe that takes very little work and is perfect in every way. This Vegan Low Carb Bread is the bread recipe that ticks all the boxes.

To make the bread dough takes only about five minutes, you really can’t beat that.

Just mix the dry ingredients, add the liquids and briefly mix to combine. Place the dough in a bread loaf pan and shape it into a bread loaf. Nothing to it.

The one thing about this low carb bread recipe you have to be patient because it takes time to bake. You can’t rush the baking process.

This vegan bread is made without eggs and xanthan gum. Using psyllium husk is excellent in this vegan bread recipe because it replaces eggs. Eggs are often used in low carb grain-free bread recipes.

When psyllium is mixed with liquids, it becomes a gel-like mixture, similar to an egg and is a suitable replacement in most egg-free recipes.

Psyllium is a form of water-soluble plant fiber that comes from the seeds of a plant known as Plantago ovato, which is native to southern and western Asia.

The health benefits of psyllium husk are astonishing. Psyllium can help relieve constipation and treat diarrhea.

Some psyllium studies show that psyllium is also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome and regulate blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.

Some studies show that psyllium can help lower heart disease by lowering blood pressure, improving lipid levels, and strengthening the heart muscle.

I added sesame seeds to this Vegan Low Carb Bread recipe because these tiny seeds are flavourful, adding a slightly nutty flavour to this healthy bread, but more importantly, they have many health benefits.

The oil in sesame seeds helps to remove dental plaque.

The seeds are rich in anti-inflammatory properties helping our skin stay soft and supple.

They are rich in polyunsaturated fats, and sesamin is known to keep blood pressure level in check.

The sesame seeds contain Omega-6, fiber, iron, calcium and magnesium, and because of their high healthy fat content, these tiny seeds help boost our energy.

Rory, it is best to use whole psyllium husk in this bread recipe. If you were to substitute the whole for powder, the measurements must change. I have not tried to make it with powder, so I can’t tell you how much to use, but a lot less.


Wow amazing !! I don't have psyllium husk may I use psyllium powder?


Debbie, I am sorry not in this recipe. However, we have many tasty gluten free bread recipes for you to explore.

This sounds so good and I plan to make it for myself but I am trying to help my granddaughter who is 20 and lives with me and just diagnosed with celiac BUT she also has a severe allergy to almonds. Is there any substitute for the almond flour or combination of things? Thank you, Debbie


Cathie, tapioca flour is a starch, so it would not work in this recipe. Sorghum flour (yes it is a grain) is the only one you can use to replace cassava flour in this recipe. When I say do not over mix, it means mix just long enough to combine the ingredients. I love this bread and make it often, but cassava flour is the best ingredient for excellent results.

Cathie Simmons

Love the taste but epic fail on the rise. Top rose, looked fabulous but bottom never moved so was a gummy mess. My fault probably as I used tapioca flour in place of cassava, Directions said dont over mix but didn't give more definitive time frame as some recipes do. I'd like to try again. Other than using cassava, any suggestions?


Karl, the calories are higher because of the almond flour used in this recipe. However, this bread is hearty, different from a typical sandwich bread. Add a few healthy toppings such. as tomatoes, onions, and lettuce to enjoy a wholesome, satisfying meal with high protein and fiber. I often use just one slice and serve it as an open sandwich. Thank you for calculating the calories.


I calculated the calories per slice and it comes to 190 calories. This is the highest calorie bread I have ever seen.


Stacy I don’t know because I have not used a bread machine for this recipe. Sorry

Can this bread be made in a bread machine, on the gluten-free setting?


Valerie, using a narrower loaf pan will give you a better rise. As far as smooth on top, I have no issue, but it can be imperfect. The dough ball is exactly as pic # 2. I hope you used psyllium husk and not powder. The other thing I can think of is not to overmix the dough. This is a good pan to use


I tried this, and it's good, but it did not have the rise I was expecting. How do you get it smooth on top without patting it down? Also, how big is the dough ball when it's done mixing? Same as picture #2 or smaller? Thank you!


Dominika, coconut flour will not work. This recipe’s primary ingredient is almond flour and can’t be replaced by just one flour. I suggest checking out another one of our bread recipes without almond flour. Sorry


Hello! I'm just starting an AIP diet which tells me to avoid a lot of things, but among them is almond flour. Could this be replaced by coconut flour and would it be 1:1? Thanks in advance!


Lydia, I am sorry I don’t know since I have not made it in a bread machine. If you do make it in a bread machine, please let us know how the bread turned out. Thank you.


Hi, do you thinking this recipe would this bread recipe work in a bread machine? Thanks!


Alysha, I am so happy to hear that. The bread should keep up to 4 days when refrigerated. Enjoy!


Hello :)! My mom and I lovvveeee this bread. Thank you so much. I am wondering how long this bread will last in the fridge? Thank you!


yes you can replace sorghum flour for cassava Danielle.


Hi i would live to try this recipe although how can i replace the cassava flour by something else ? Could i use sourghum flour instead ?? Thank you


Hi Lynn, here is a link to detailed information for high altitude baking. Hope this helps


Yes, Kristina. Thanks for your response. I'm at just under 6,000 feet. That is why I was asking whether you could give me some idea of how to adjust the recipe for altitude?


High altitude (over 3,000 feet) affects bread baking because the lower air pressure allows the yeast to rise 25 to 50 percent faster, and the drier air makes the flour drier. If the dough over-rises, the results might be a heavy, dry loaf or misshapen or collapsed loaf


This bread is great! It was a bit dense in the center, and I'm wondering whether some adjustment for altitude is called for. Do you have any ideas about whether this is necessary and, if so, how to do this?


Thank you so much for letting me know. I am so happy you enjoyed it!


I never write reviews, but oh my god this bread is soooo great! I'll admit I was skeptical when I mixed the dough together and it was a congealed lump (and in the spirit of honesty I did pat down the top a little). But wow it baked up beautifully and has a really neat flavor profile. I subbed coconut flour for cassava because it's cheaper. Sweet recipe!


thank you!


Best bread ever!!! Thank you so much I love your recipes


I am so happy you enjoyed it :-)


thank you for this incredible bread recipe, finally a bread that is not only healthy but super easy to make and more importantly so delicious!!!! I will be making this bread recipe again
