Keto Cheddar Bacon Mug Bread Snack

12 ratings

An extra step in this mug bread recipe adds on a few minutes, but who wouldn’t do a little extra work for the crispy bacon in their snack? This mug bread is a bit like a loaded potato; it’s filled with salty bacon bits, melted cheddar, and fragrant green onion. This is the best Keto bread recipe for anyone with the “Keto flu.” If you’re in dire need of sodium, snack on this mug bread to start feeling better. The almond flour, bacon, and cheddar all add the sodium your body might be craving after cutting out major carbs. You could also pair this snack as a side dish to a breakfast meal. Any of Carb Manager’s omelet recipes would go well with this mug bread, or perhaps the Carb Manager Keto Steak and Eggs recipe.

Get Clear On What Keto Flu Is

What is Keto flu? While you’re not actually sick, you can feel low-energy, trouble sleeping, upset stomach, or headaches when experiencing the Keto flu. When you start a Ketogenic diet, you are removing a lot of processed foods from your life. Those processed foods are usually high in sodium, and your normal sodium intake drops quickly on a Keto diet, resulting in the aforementioned symptoms. That’s why this cheddar bacon mug bread recipe is the best keto bread recipe for anyone with the infamous headache that can occur 1-2 weeks into your new diet. For an even quicker fix, a glass of water with a teaspoon of salt stirred in can help reduce symptoms ASAP.

Not All Fats Are The Same

Surely you were won over by the Keto diet when you learned you could still eat meats and fats. In fact, it’s encouraged! Since you are cutting processed foods out of your diet, you’re unlikely to come across much trans fat. However, knowing the difference between saturated and unsaturated fats is still important, even when most of your diet consists of fat. Unsaturated fats are considered “healthy fats”, and consist of avocados, nuts, and fish. Saturated fats are considered okay in moderation, and you’ll find them in your animal and dairy products. A sprinkle of bacon bits in your mug bread is still healthy, but make sure your protein doesn’t outweigh your fats over the course of a day.

  • Step 1

    Cook the bacon to a crisp. When done, cool and wipe away excess grease. Then, cut into bacon bits. Arrange the bacon bits alongside shredded cheddar cheese and diced green onion.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In a bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking powder, the egg white, and a pinch of salt. Melt the butter and mix this into the batter as well. Fold the bacon, cheese, and green onion into the bread batter.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Give the inside of a coffee mug a single spritz of pan spray. Transfer the batter into your mug and even out the top with a spatula. Top the batter off with the final amount of cheddar. Microwave the mug for 120 seconds, or 2 minutes. Slide the bread out of the mug and slice in half to cool quickly before eating.

    So quick, easy and satisfying! I doubled a batch, fixed it in a large mug and split with my husband. Highly recommend. (I substituted onion powder for the green onion - I’m sure other flavor enhancing substitutions would work as well.)

        Superb recipe, I sliced and grilled it once cooked and it gave it a lovely crispy toasted cheese touch 😋

          Absolutely delish. No spring onions, so used some red onion, and used a whole egg. My partner ( who is sceptical about keto), wants to know if he can have it every day

            Delicious. I made it in a small bowl so I had more surface for my fried egg and extra bacon 😁. Will reduce microwave time a bit next time since it was a tad overcooked.
