Egg White Bread – Keto and PSMF

Egg White Bread has been a gamechanger for me not only for incorporating on PSMF (Protein Sparing Modified Fast) days, but also on my regular keto days!  Use this as the basis for keto loaves, buns, pizza crust and more!

Egg White Bread – Keto and PSMF

This recipe has been adapted from Maria Emmerich’s original protein sparing egg white bread recipe which you can check out right here!

I have added a few simple ingredients to make it work for me.  I lowered the amount of egg white powder and lowered the cooking temperature and time and I found it is less dry for me that way.  Not to mention saving on the cost of the egg white powder!

Adding nutritional yeast and allulose gives the bread more flavor and texture and results in a nice brown crust!

Note to Canada and other countries:  I get my allulose from these 2 places (depends on who has stock!)

  • iHerb Choose Global Landmark for cheap cheaping (I paid $2.52 to ship to Canada!) They also have egg white protein powder for a good price.
  • WholesomeYumSHop:  Check out their allulose blends and powdered allulose as well! Use my code KETOGENICWOMAN to get a discount!

Tips, Tricks and Hacks for Making the PSMF Bread!

 

Why won’t my egg whites stiffen and whip up?

The egg whites have to be whipped until very stiff!  This takes about 8 minutes with both electric beaters as well as a stand mixer.  Here are some tips:

  • The bowl MUST be completely clean and dry and free of any oil or fat, water and anything else.
  • Not even a drop of yolk (which is fat) can get into the whites or they will fail to whip.
  • Excess humidity can prevent egg whites from whipping
  • Use cream of tartar.  It is an acidic powder that adds no flavor but can help the egg white molecules bond together.
  • Always start with room temperature eggs

Do You Need a Stand Mixer to Make the PSMF Bread?

No absolutely not!

Even though I am using this one now (affectionately called Big Red!), I used only my electric beaters for over 40 years! Including on my youtube channel where I have made this egg white bread recipe!

If using a hand mixer then cut the recipe in half.  Bake at 325 for 25 minutes or so, then let rest in the oven for 10 minutes with oven turned off.

Use Fresh Eggs or Carton Egg Whites for the Egg White Bread?

This is entirely personal preference!

However, if you are having trouble getting your egg whites to stiffen and you have looked at all the tips under that heading, then maybe this switch will do it for you!  Some people do say they get better results with fresh egg whites.

  • One caution though is that if you are cracking your own egg whites, be very careful about the egg yolks! You cannot get any into the mixture!
  • If using the carton egg whites, measure out how much you need and bring to room temperature for best results.
  • Carton Egg whites can be frozen and then thawed out the day before using.

Do You Have to Use Allulose?

I like to use the allulose because in baking it has wonderful browning properties.  The bread baked with allulose has a nice smooth brown crust, while the bread without allulose has a crust without color and a dry texture.

That said, if you can’t get allulose then omit it and you will still get a loaf of bread with incredible macros! Also the browning doesn’t matter anyways if you are using the recipe to make pizza crust or some of the other recipes like cinnamon bread.

Note to Canada and other countries:  I get my allulose from these 2 places (depends on who has stock!)

  • iHerb Choose Global Landmark for cheap cheaping (I paid $2.52 to ship to Canada!) They also have egg white protein powder for a good price.
  • WholesomeYumSHop:  Check out their allulose blends and powdered allulose as well! Use my code KETOGENICWOMAN to get a discount!

Egg White Bread - Keto and PSMF

Egg White Bread has been a gamechanger for me not only for incorporating on PSMF (Protein Sparing Modified Fast) days, but also on my regular keto days!  Use this as the basis for keto loaves, buns, pizza crust and more! Makes 2 loaves (3x8pan or 1 large 5x8 loaf pan)

Cut recipe in half if using hand mixer.

Modified recipe from Maria Emmerich, please check out her awesome PSMF recipes at https://mariamindbodyhealth.com/

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup egg whites (carton or fresh)
  • 1/2 tsp redmond real salt
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp allulose
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2/3 cup 100% egg white protein powder

Instructions

  1. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar, salt and allulose in a stand mixer at maximum whip until very stiff. This will take several minutes! If you do not have a stand mixer, you can use an electric mixer but I would recommend just making half the recipe in that case.
  2. Add in the nutritional yeast and egg white powder.
  3. Stir in at the lowest mixer setting until just combined.
  4. Spoon batter into 2 silicone loaf pans or make buns or free form creations! (watch my video!)
  5. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes if using smaller loaf pan (or 25 minutes for buns) or 45 minutes for full recipe in a large loaf pan.
  6. When timer goes off, turn off the oven and leave for another 10-15 minutes. This is for loaves only to prevent fast cooling and the bread caving in too much.
  7. Allow to cool completely before removing from pans and slicing.

Notes

If you use an electric knife you can get 16 slices per loaf! Adjust the macros accordingly.
