How and Why I Created This Recipe

A few weeks back, I shared a minimalist keto cottage cheese recipe with only 2 main ingredients on my blog that took off like wildfire. My 2 Ingredient Cottage Cheese Bread Recipe.

It is a 2-ingredient wonder that was as easy as it was innovative. But you, my dear readers and viewers on my YouTube channel, craved something more. You wanted bread that actually felt and tasted like regular bread.

So, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. After several trials and a bit of kitchen alchemy, I’ve crafted a high protein bread recipe that maintains the simplicity you love but brings a whole new level of deliciousness. It’s still keto, it’s still easy and high protein, but now it’s breadier than ever – a true loaf that’s sure to satisfy. 

Ingredients

  • full-fat cottage cheese

Instructions

Heat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grab a loaf pan and give it a good lining with parchment paper or use a non-stick silicon bread pan.

Using a high-speed blender or a food processor (with a lid to avoid any mess), blend the cottage cheese until it’s perfectly smooth. When I attempted to use a mixer, it led to a kitchen disaster with cottage cheese splattered all over the walls.

Add the eggs and blend once more for a seamless mix.

In a big bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt.

Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Be gentle, too much mixing can deflate the airy texture we’re aiming for.

Carefully pour the batter into your lined loaf pan. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Let the bread cool on a wire rack before you slice it. 

And there you have it! Follow these steps for a keto-friendly bread that’s sure to impress. Enjoy your baking! 

This keto cottage cheese bread is not only gluten-free but also a great source of protein. It’s the perfect addition to your low-carb diet and a testament to the fact that keto can be both delicious and easy!

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: Is cottage cheese keto? 

A: Absolutely! Full-fat cottage cheese is low in carbs and high in protein, making it perfect for keto.

Q: Can I use different flour? 

A: Almond flour works best for this recipe to keep it keto-friendly, but you can experiment with other low-carb flours.

Q: How do I store this Cottage Cheese Bread bread?

A: You can store this bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat, you can microwave it for a few seconds or toast it in a toaster or oven.

Q: Can I use a different cheese instead of cottage cheese?

A: Yes, you can use any cheese that is soft and creamy, such as cream cheese, ricotta cheese, or mascarpone cheese. You may need to adjust the amount depending on the consistency and moisture of the cheese.

Q: Can I add other ingredients to this bread?

A: Yes, you can add some herbs, spices like garlic powder, papprika, or even chocolate chips or nuts to this bread. Just make sure to fold them gently into the batter and not to add too much, as it may affect the texture and rise of the bread.

Q: Can I use all-purpose flour?

A: No, I do not recommend using all-purpose flour for this recipe, as it is not keto-friendly and have more carbs. 

Q: Can I use liquid egg whites instead of whole eggs?

A: Yes, you can use liquid egg whites instead of whole eggs, as long as they are 100% pure egg whites and not mixed with any additives or preservatives. You will need about 2/3 cup of liquid egg whites to replace 3 whole eggs. However, you may lose some of the richness and flavor that the egg yolks provide, so you may want to add some extra cheese or butter to the batter.

Q: Can I use egg white protein powder instead of whole eggs for this recipe?

A: Yes, you can use egg white powder instead of whole eggs for this recipe, as long as you reconstitute the powder with water first. Egg white powder is a convenient and safe alternative to fresh eggs, as it has a long shelf life and does not carry the risk of salmonella. It also has a high protein content and low fat and carb content, making it suitable for a keto diet.

To replace the 3 eggs in this recipe, you will need about 1/3 cup of egg white powder and 1 cup water. Mix the egg white powder and water in a bowl until well combined. You can use an electric mixer or a whisk for this step, but make sure the bowl and the utensils are clean and dry. The reconstituted egg whites should be light and foamy, similar to fresh egg whites.

You can then use the reconstituted egg whites as you would use fresh egg whites in the recipe. Follow the same steps of beating the egg yolks with the cottage cheese, whipping the egg whites until stiff peaks form, and folding them gently into the egg yolk and cottage cheese mixture. The batter should be light and fluffy, with some white streaks remaining. Bake the bread as instructed and enjoy!

Q: How do I make cottage cheese bagels with this recipe?

A: You can make cottage cheese bagels with this recipe by shaping the batter into bagel-like rings and baking them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. You can also sprinkle some sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or cheese on top of the bagels before baking. The baking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the bagels, but it should be around 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and firm.

Q: Can I make cottage cheese ice cream with this recipe?

A: No, this recipe is not suitable for making cottage cheese ice cream, as it is not creamy or sweet enough.

Q: What does cottage cheese do in baking?

A: Cottage cheese is a versatile ingredient that can enhance the flavor, texture, and nutrition of baked goods. It adds a delightful creaminess, tanginess, and richness to cakes, breads, muffins, pies, and more. It also provides protein, calcium, and probiotics, making it a healthy choice for baking. Cottage cheese can replace or reduce the amount of butter, oil, cream, sour cream, ricotta, or cream cheese in many recipes, lowering the fat and calorie content. Cottage cheese can also help the baked goods rise and hold their shape, as it contains some leavening agents.
