This quick microwave "keto" is a great way to supplement traditional bread or cake when looking for alternatives and not sure where to go.

When we decide to make a change in our diet, there can be several reasons, we may want to lose weight or we may just need to lose fat.

We may also be having gastrointestinal problems and need to correct some parameters to see if we improve.

Another possibility is that we simply want to eat a little healthier and decide to limit or avoid certain foods.

Wheat flour together with sugar, are foods that should be limited or avoided from the beginning, and see how our body reacts.

If you are a person used to eating ultra-processed and many refined flours, you will notice the difference very soon.

If, on the other hand, your diet is already low in carbohydrates and you do not abuse ultra-processed products, you must be patient.

In that case, the changes will come, but they will take much longer and you may need to add other strategies, such as intermittent fasting to activate the lipolytic metabolism and achieve that desired loss of fat without losing muscle mass.


Quick microwave "bread" brews in 1 minutes and is a quick fix when you don't want to cook.


You can always improve, but depending on the situation from which we start, the process will be different and the strategy to be applied as well.

Be that as it may, beyond having a professional to guide you, it is of vital importance to have consultation sources and spaces in which to learn how to put into practice all that theory, have access to the right recipes and how to prepare them.

After this introduction, whose purpose is none other than to justify a recipe like this, that you understand why sometimes these types of preparations can be useful to us, I turn to talk about this delicious Quick microwave "bread".

This quick "bread" is nothing more than the well-known "mug cake" or "cup cake", in salty version.

The reality is that I have prepared this kind of sponge cake in the microwave for many years, around 10, when for health reasons I had to start looking for alternatives to the usual.

At that time I was unable to skip breakfast and did not know what to do to avoid the usual toast, this recipe helped me a lot and was, along with the sugar-free apple compote., the beginning of everything.

En this post You have the recipe that I have been preparing since then with a variable frequency, that is, not every week because I do not like to always repeat the same thing, I admit that I get tired.

It is a microwave unsweetened coconut and almond sponge cake I cut into slices, toast and spread with homemade butter, delicious with a coffee or infusion.


The sweet version of this "bread" is the sugar-free coconut and almond sponge cake, just as quick and practical.


Today I propose the same recipe with some variations, without coconut and with EVOO instead of coconut oil, seasoned with salt and with the possibility of adding other spices.

The idea is to make a super quick but salty microwave keto "bread" to take at breakfast, lunch or dinner, to make easy sandwiches with smoked salmon, avocado, egg, ham, cheese or What comes to mind.

It is a way to prepare a quick breakfast or a casual dinner when you don't feel like cooking. It can also be used as a toast or to prepare sandwiches and take them to the office or to a picnic.

This dough contains egg, vegetable milk, ground almonds, salt, extra virgin olive oil and optionally, spices can be added.

It is a gluten-free and low carbohydrate mass, but rich in healthy fats, that's why it is part of the keto or ketogenic diet and in any low carb diet, it is very satiating and delicious.

In the image you can see different options, they are assorted sandwiches prepared with this lightly toasted «bread».


Prepare your version of this quick bread by adding your favorite spices, cut some slices, toast them and enjoy!


Salmon and avocado, cheese with poached onion and red bell pepper and northern tuna with tomato, are just three ideas, you can make them what you want.

I encourage you to try this option and see how easy it is to vary and not get bored without falling into industrial sliced ​​breads that usually have sugar and other little recommended ingredients.



Why I like this recipe so much:

  • It does not contain flour, it does not contain gluten.
  • It is prepared in less than 5 minutes, and the cooking time is 1 minutes.
  • Sometimes I take it for breakfast and other times I use it to make sandwiches to go or for a casual dinner.
  • Low in carbohydrates, it can be included in low carb and keto diets.
  • You can add vegetable milk or water, without lactose.
  • It is very satisfying.

Please note: You may have noticed that I have put quotation marks around the word "bread" throughout the text, obviously this is not bread, it is a kind of quick savory sponge cake cooked in the microwave based on almonds and eggs, which can serve as bread when we don't want to abuse this.

I love bread, but the real one, made with quality flours and to be able to be sourdough, but when I want to reduce the carbohydrates in my diet to activate my lipolytic metabolism, I eliminate it.

In those periods, when I follow a low carbohydrate diet and sometimes, being more strict, a ketogenic diet, it is when I use recipes like this.

    Hello! How many eggs does the recipe contain? It's not very clear. Thank you!

    Great recipe… I want to make it but I don't have a microwave.
    I understand that I can increase quantities and make it in the oven, right? … Do you have any idea how long it would take to cook it in the oven?
    Thanks for such great recipes!

    • Hello Ely, it can indeed be done in the oven, but it will probably be drier, turn on only the air and if you can, put a container with water to add moisture. The time will depend on the amount of dough, but boy, a small sponge cake, usually takes about 15-20 minutes at 180ºC with the oven already preheated. After time, click in the center with a toothpick to see if it is cooked, it has to come out clean. Greetings! 😉

    • Hello Israel, once you have it done, let it cool and store it in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap so that it does not dry out, you must keep it in the refrigerator to avoid the appearance of molds. It can last up to 4 days.
      Cheers! 😉

    • Hello Katherine, you can substitute any nut flour, if it seems too heavy you can add a little coconut flour, but little to avoid the texture being gritty.
      Mug cakes are also usually made with cereal flour, for example oatmeal, but the proportions of the ingredients will not be the same and I have not tried it, so I cannot give you a recipe and it would no longer have the nutritional values ​​of this one. recipe.
      Cheers! 😉
