Keto as a Way of Life
Keto Breakfast Bread Strawberry Trifle
There are a lot of “90 Second Keto Bread” recipes out there. And I think maybe we’ve tried them all!
The problem is that they end up tasting like burnt eggs to me.
Or sometimes the bread ends up tasting like coconut because of the coconut flour in it. The worst part about that is that coconut flour tends to cake up in the back of my mouth and turn into a texture that isn’t pleasant. It’s also hard to swallow.
All that to say, we didn’t like those recipes so we made our own. We landed on a quick keto bread recipe that we enjoy, so we wanted to share it with you.
After I talk about how to make the bread itself, I’m going to include Rebecca’s favorite use of the stuff; putting it in a Strawberry Trifle!
Ingredients – Notes
This is one of those ingredients we’d never heard of before Keto. Since we discovered Hemp Hearts, we’ve found about a brazillian uses for them!
With 1 carb and 1 dietary fiber per serving, it’s the perfect ingredient to use in Keto oatmeal, to make Keto breads/muffings and all sorts of other things. Needless to say, you’ll see this ingredient in a lot of the recipes on this blog.
Ground Flax Seed
Flax seed is one of the essentials of Keto baking. It adds a depth of flavor to breads/muffins. With only 1 net carb per 2 tablespoons, it’s a great addition to any recipe that might use flour or meal.
We like it because it’s also a good source of Magnesium and Omega 3 fatty acids.
Made of blanched and ground up almonds, this flour offers texture, flavor and substance to baked items.
Since there is no gluten or binding agent in almond flour, you typically have to use eggs in combination with this ingredient in your recipes.
We've tried a few different brands, and they're all good quality, but for the price, we like Blue Diamond. As I write this, it's $.28 cents/oz on Amazon versus $.52/oz for Anthony's and $.66/oz for Bob's Red Mill.
Critical to just about anything you're going to bake, this ingredient is a pantry main stay.
We use Bob's Red Mill becuase we trust the ingredients, and Bob's doesn't use aluminum in their baking powder.
If you've ever experienced a tinny flavor on the back end of a muffin or pastry, it's because of the aluminum in the baking powder.
Monkfruit quickly became our favorite Keto sweetener. It tastes good, has no aftertaste that we can discern and it doesn’t affect our blood glucose at all. It also stands up to heat better than most other Keto sweeteners.
The only downside is that it’s a little more expensive than other sweeteners, but we think it’s worth it.
Granulated (aka Classic) Monkfruit is a substitute for white sugar, and can be used as a 1:1 replacement in most recipes.

Interested in learning a little more about sweeteners and where they rank for Keto?
We put together a handy chart of 55 sweeteners commonly used on the market today. The chart shows you which sweeteners are actually sugar, which ones are bad chemicals or natural, where they land on the Glycemic Index and more.
We also rank each sweetener on the list as Good, Bad, or Ugly for Keto.
Get the Hardware Together
- Some type of food processor. I use the small processor bowl attachment on my Cuisinart Immersion Blender.
- A 4-6 inch Pyrex bowl (plastic will do, but it needs to be microwave safe)
- Something to stir with… like a spoon.
This CuisinartCSB-79 Smart Stick Hand Blender is the one we use.
It has been an invaluable addition to our kitchen arsenal. The whisk attachment has even replaced our old standard hand mixer.
It whips cream in no time, purrees berries, immulsifies mayonaise, blends salad dressings, you name it!
Recipe Instructions – Notes
There’s nothing fancy about this recipe. If you follow the steps in the actual recipe below, you’ll be fine. But I wanted to make a note about how I treat the Hemp Hearts here.
You could just mix everything together in a bowl and nuke it till it’s done.
I like to give the dry ingredients a few pulses in the mini food process attachment. Then run it for about 30 seconds.
This breaks up the Hemp Hearts into smaller pieces. You don’t want to turn it into meal here, but breaking the seeds down a bit makes the texture of the bread a little less like cornbread and more like a soft, spongy, breakfast bread.
Once that’s done, dump wet and dry ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly and microwave on high for 90 seconds.
I find that a 4 inch pyrex bowl works perfectly because it makes the keto bread “sandwich” size.
You can make your bread any size you like. If it’s too thick (your dish is too deep), though, you may need to microwave it just a little longer to make sure it gets done in the middle.
When the microwave beeps, resist the urge to reach in there and grab the bowl. That sucker WILL be nuclear-freaking-hot! (I know from experience)
It’s best to let the bread sit in there for a few minutes to cool and “set”. Residual heat will continue to cook the bread for a couple minutes.
You want that to happen because it was finish cooking the bread in the middle.
If you remove the bread from the dish too soon, the middle may not be done or set; it will be doughy or flat.
Once it’s had time to cool, turn your bread out onto a plate or cutting board. You can cut it in half sandwich-wise with a bread knife or cut it into cubes for the trifle I’m getting ready to talk about.
You could also just butter it, eat it and make another one because it’s that good and that easy to make.
Build the Strawberry Trifle
This part is pretty straight-forward.
Macerate about a half cup of strawberries and mix them with 2 tablespoons of granulated Monk Fruit.
Whip roughly a quarter cup or heavy whipping cream until you get stiff peaks, then mix in a tablespoon of granulated Monk Fruit.
NOTE: If you have the Immersion Blender I mentioned earlier, just use the wire whisk attachment to whip your cream.
Cube your Keto Bread.
Now, layer everything into a nice glass. In my case, I used a Mason Jar because that’s how we do things in Tennessee. The ‘jar method’ make it easy to your trifle to go. Put a top on the jar and take it with you for a low carb breakfast or snack on the go.
