This bread is merely bread with zero carbs. And when it says zero, I mean no carbs and zero fiber, no extra math to make the carbs equal to zero. There are no almond or coconut flours. No nut or seed butter either.
Ingredient Substitutions for the Carnivore Bread
The Ground Meat
The original recipe calls for ground pork. However, beef and even chicken will also work. Ground turkey would also do the job. Depending on what meat you choose the macronutrient content will vary.
For example, if using ground chicken breast, the loaf will be leaner compared to using ground pork.
Pork Rind Options
There are pork rinds out there that are flavored. This recipe calls for your basic non-flavored variety. However, feel free and experiment with flavors.
Pre-Crushed V.S. Whole
You can find pork rinds that come pre-crushed or you can crush them yourself. If I’m feeling lazy I will use the pre-crushed kind. This makes cleaning and life just that much easier. The pre-crushed kind could cost more though, so keep that in mind.
Jonathan the maker of this recipe made biscuits out of the no-carb bread at Robert’s house. The video below shows him making this zero-carb bread. The time mark is from 14:30 to 18 minutes
Jonathan Shane is the person to thank for this recipe.
Those who have made this no-carb bread have loved it.
Eat_breathe_keto on Instagram made this bread. She couldn’t even wait to taste it before she took a bite.
Sarahbenn8 loved this no-carb bread so much, she has it on her story highlights on her Instagram page.
Adriennegustafson over on Instagram has made this pork rind bread with chicken and absolutely loves it. In fact, the photos in this post are hers. ????
Does the keto bread taste eggy?
Unlike some keto bread out there, this bread is not eggy at all.
This pork rind bread is also pretty dense, not your usual keto bread recipes that can come out soggy and eggy.
It can give off the flavor of the meat you choose to use for this recipe.
Adrienne used chicken in making this recipe. She stated that when you pair this pork rind bread with lunch meat or even use it for a grilled cheese sandwich, the chicken flavor is mostly covered up.
Could I make biscuits?
As can be seen in the video above, Jonathan creates biscuits out of this bread recipe. So, feel free to make those instead of the bread loaf if you wish.
Once the bread has cooled. Place it in an airtight container and keep it in your fridge for up to 7 days. You can also store the bread in your freezer.
If you choose to put some loaves in the freezer, pre-slice it and put parchment paper between each slice. Doing this will make it easier for you to take slices at a time.

Abby, just tried this bread tonight – it’s fabulous! I used ground turkey and even had to use BBQ pork rinds for half of the pork panko…and it was still just delicious! Cuts like a good, full-bodied loaf of bread. Amazing.
I did not know who Sensible Blonde was so I went to Google her and I found the book you are talking about. It looks like the book came out in 2020. I also found the carni batter recipe (https://carnivorerx.com/carnibatter/) and this recipe is not the same recipe on my post.
My Carnivore bread recipe was created in 2018. Johnathan first posted the recipe on his Instagram on October 27, 2018. The post can be seen here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BpcDvuwHqqr/ . This current post also was first published in November 2019, as can be seen at the top.
I also originally posted this recipe below my Thanksgiving stuffing post, that Johnathan also created, post in November 2018. You can view that post here https://www.ketokeuhnnutrition.com/keto-recipes/carnivore-bread-keto-stuffing/
Appreciate the clarification. The Trade Mark had me a bit concerned until I searched and could not find a TM for that particular recipe. Will, with gladness, check out the recipes you’ve linked to.
Can you use egg yolk and no whites?
I’m sure you can, it will just be different. I have not tried it this way.
Looks good. Has anybody used ground beef?
Love this bread! Thank you so much.
Wanted to note that it also makes great crackers if you make it in mini loaf pans, thin slice it & pop the slices into the air fryer/low oven (I did 275 for 20 mins in the air fryer, flipping at midpoint). Just like melba toast!
Hi! Is the ground meat pre-cooked before adding to the recipe?
It is not.
I used chicken and it turned out amazing. Whoever came up with this recipe is a genius!
Can baking powder be added to give it a little extra rise?
I have never tried this. You can give it a shot and let me know.
Is pork rind necessary? Any substitute for it?
I don’t know of any alternatives here to keep this bread 0 carbs. It is a necessary item for this recipe.
THIS bread is by far the best tasting low carb/zero carb bread I have ever made. I have been working on some different “tests” hoping to create a loaf with a moderate rise. I added some proofed yeast to it as well as a scoop of unflavored zero carb whey protein powder, about an 8th cp of allulose, and a tsp of salt – it was amazing. I just made a loaf today! I never thought the yeast would make it rise at all – but it does, and the bread did not puff up in the oven and then fall. So i’m fairly excited about it.
LOVE THIS BREAD!!
What is proofed yeast? How much yeast did you use? Thx so much!!
The first time I made this I used beef and it was too dense for me (basically a meatloaf). This time I made it with ground turkey and replaced whole eggs with egg whites. Turned out great! Less eggy and crispier crust. Much better than my last one. I like making grilled cheese with it. And the calorie cut is an added bonus!
It is where you add the yeast to a sugar solution to bring it to life. If you let it proof long enough, it will eat up all the sugar, and your food will still be sugar free.
I’ve made this bread 3 times and was great each time. Realized that I forgot the pork rinds each time. It still turned out fantastic. The last 2 loaves I made were with leftover pork ribs. I made ribs and didn’t like them so I figured let’s try. I loaded 5 eggs and 1/2 pound of meat in a Nutra Ninja cup and blended put it in a loaf pan x2 and it turned out the same as ground pork. It’s pretty good. 4 months on dirty carnivore lost 35lbs and lots of sizes (inflammation)
