If you want the bread to be extra fluffy, you could separate the eggs, whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold them into the mixture. I was throwing caution to the wind that day, and just used the eggs whole. I didn’t find the bread too heavy either. More like a wholemeal loaf.
I kept this keto bread in the fridge, wrapped up in some parchment paper so it didn’t dry out. It was just as delicious the next day. I enjoyed slices of the bread toasted with a couple of eggs in the morning. As well as being delicious, I found the keto bread to be very filling.
