I have a secret. Sometimes I like to sneak into the bakery and smell the freshly baked bread and look at all the wonderful pastries that I am missing out on. I know, I know, it’s a terrible habit for someone who is so proud to be on the Keto diet. However, it does sometimes offer me some inspiration, which is where this recipe comes from.

Upon my most recent excursion into the bakery, I saw this brightly colored loaf of bread that instantly caught my eye. I was so excited when I saw that it was made with matcha that I had to come home and make a Keto matcha bread recipe straight away.

What’s a Matcha?

Nothing, what’s a matcha with you?

Sorry, just a bad joke.

But, for real, matcha is not an ingredient that you hear of every day – though it is gaining popularity. Tea lovers will know matcha well, as it is a finely ground version of green tea. It is not like other green teas as it is grown specially in the shade and processed differently. Added to a little warm milk or hot water, matcha makes for a delicious caffeine punch.

Matcha is getting more popular for its many uses, not only in drinks but in baking as well. There are also supposed to be many benefits to a matcha face mask or skin cream.

A Simple Bread to Put Together in No Time

Don’t worry non-bakers, this one will not be a challenge. In fact, the process of putting together this loaf is so much more straightforward than typical bread. The directions are more similar to that of a cake than an actual bread dough, and there aren’t many ingredients to mess up on either.

The dough is leavened by baking powder and soda in place of yeast. Which means there is none of the fussing around with heavy mixing or allowing the dough to rise. This is a straightforward mix, pour and bake job, that I am sure anyone can do.


What Can I Use This Bread For?

Well, I am sure you are a lot like me and just like having the option of having some bread and ghee once and a while. However, there are some other options. Though the flavors of the bread may not work with every sandwich, one with some high-end ingredients may call for a fancy loaf of bread such as this.

The tasty matcha can also help to enhance soups, so why not try dipping your bread in a delicate tomato basil. Really, if you have been on the Keto diet for long enough, you don’t really care what it is for, you’ll just want some great bread.
