This keto bread pudding is pure comfort on a plate. It has a soft and tender inside with a crisp and toasty top. Each bite is wonderfully buttery and perfectly sweetened with notes of vanilla and warm spices. And best of all, each serving of this low carb bread pudding recipe has under 2 NET CARBS!
THE BEST KETO BREAD PUDDING
It's no secret that regular bread pudding is notoriously high in carbs. Actually, it's probably one of the most carb-loaded desserts out there.
But this low carb bread pudding is every bit as tasty and satisfying as a "normal" one - just without all the carbs and sugar.
It sounds too good to be true, but it isn't!
This simple and delicious sugar free bread pudding has a soft and buttery texture, a golden-brown top, and hints of vanilla and cinnamon in the sweet pudding.
And the beauty of this keto bread pudding recipe is that you don't have to go out of your way to find a low carb bread loaf to make it with - this entire recipe comes together from scratch with basic keto-friendly ingredients you probably already have!
Plus, this recipe only takes 10 minutes of prep work total! Yup, you read that right – just 10 minutes of work, and the rest is just letting your bread pudding bake to perfection.
I love having a slice of this sugar free bread pudding with a cup of Keto Hot Chocolate. The combination is like a warm hug and go so well together.
Oh, and this recipe was inspired by The Hungry Elephant, so if you like this recipe, take a look at their blog! They've got a lot of delicious keto recipes on it.
INGREDIENTS FOR KETO BREAD PUDDING
As you already know, we'll be making everything from scratch for this keto bread pudding, including the bread loaf.
And again, all you need are common, easy-to-find keto baking ingredients.
With that said, here's what you'll need for the bread:
- ½ cup melted butter
- ½ cup water
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup Brown "Sugar" Swerve (or Lakanto's Golden Monkfruit Sweetener)
- 2 cups almond flour (or walnut or sunflower seed flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
And for the pudding:
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Heaping ¼ cup Brown "Sugar" Swerve
- 2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- Pinch of cloves
Oh, and by the way, I also happen to use a lot of these same ingredients for my keto pancakes, keto banana bread, and banana muffins So you can use any extra ingredients to make your breakfast or brunch the next day!
PICKING THE BEST KETO FLOUR TO USE
The best choice of flour for this bread pudding is almond flour. It gives it that perfect bread-like texture without packing on the carbs.
But, if you're allergic to almonds or don't want to use almond flour, the best substitutes for it are walnut flour and sunflower seed flour. They're just as low carb and can be swapped in at an equal ratio.
On the other hand, I definitely DO NOT recommend using coconut flour in place of almond flour. It's extremely absorbent, and your bread loaf will turn out dry and crumbly if you end up using it.
SWEETENING THIS KETO BREAD PUDDING
Now, moving on to the best sugar-free sweeteners for this recipe.
I used Brown "Sugar" Swerve for both the bread and pudding - it has the same consistency and sweetness level as regular brown sugar but with 0 carbs and 0 calories.
Another great keto sweetener option you can use is Lakanto's Golden Monkfruit Sweetener. It has all the same great qualities as the Brown Swerve, and you can substitute it at a 1:1 ratio.
HOW TO MAKE KETO BREAD PUDDING
This bread pudding recipe is by far one of the easiest keto desserts you'll ever make. All you really need to do is mix, pour, and bake - it's seriously as easy as 1,2,3.
And its simplicity makes this a fun dessert to make with kids!
So get your helpers, put your aprons on, and let's start baking!
STEP 1: MAKING THE KETO BREAD LOAF
First, you will preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175°C) and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
Then mix your liquid ingredients for the bread together in a large bowl – that'll be your melted butter, water, and eggs.
Next, add the Brown Swerve, flour, and baking powder to the bowl of liquid ingredients. Mix everything together until all of your ingredients are well incorporated.
Once you have a bread batter, pour it evenly into your prepared loaf pan and bake it for about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
When it is done, take it out and set it aside to cool.
STEP 2: MAKING THE PUDDING AND FINISHING UP
Ok, so once the bread has completely cooled, start tearing it into pieces. And the pieces don't have to be completely uniform in size or shape.
Next, get out a casserole dish, place the pieces of bread in it, and set aside.
Then take out a large bowl and put all of your pudding ingredients in it and whisk all of these ingredients together until well combined.
Once combined, pour the pudding mixture over the bread pieces in the casserole dish and put the dish in the 350°F (180°C) oven for 45 minutes.
Finally, when your bread pudding is ready, top it with a sprinkle of extra cinnamon for a finishing touch and serve warm.
STORING & REHEATING YOUR KETO BREAD PUDDING
So, this recipe makes 9 servings worth of sweet and toasty bread pudding – just enough for a big family or a small party to finish it off!
But if you're making this bread pudding to enjoy throughout the week, you can easily store your leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
And if you want to save some of it for a rainy day, you can store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just wrap the bread pudding tightly in plastic wrap and transfer it to an airtight container for freezing.
Now, to recreate that hot out of the oven experience, you can reheat your bread pudding in the microwave or oven.
Heat it in the microwave at 10-20 second intervals until completely warmed through, or bake it in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes.
The oven method results in a slightly better texture, but the microwave method is a little quicker. Either way, your bread pudding will still come out delicious!
This keto bread pudding has 1.6 NET CARBS per serving, which is super hard to believe once you've tried it!

This was so good!! I’ve never made bread pudding before and this was super easy. My family loved it too 🙂 thanks!!
This was amazing!! Never made bread pudding before but this looked delicious and it tasted just as good as it looks!
One of the best low carb recipes my husband and I have tried.
I've never had bread pudding before but wanted to try a new keto recipe. This was delicious!! I really liked it and am going to make it again soon!
Extremely delicious recipe! One of new favs
The only time I have had bread pudding was at a restaurant and didn't know how making it from scratch would be but this was delicious!! It really turned out great!
This is sooooo good!!! Very easy to make from scratch too.
I've only had bread pudding at restaurants before going keto and this is how I remembered it! So good!!
Do you think you could use almond milk instead of heavy cream? 😬
It might change the consistency a tiny but it should work well!
Probably my favorite keto recipe I have made, I used to love bread pudding and this was everything I hoped it would be!
I have never had a bread pudding this good (keto or not) it's just wow!
Made this for my family this morning and they loved it.
The fact that this is keto is hard to believe the bread is so good and pudding has such a sweet flavor.
This was pretty fantastic! I used 9 slices of keto bread I bought from COSTCO. I also drizzled a few tablespoons of heavy whipping cream mixed with a little bid of pure maple syrup over it. Next time i will use maple extract. It was delish!!,
I used this recipe as a guide to make my own flavor combination since I made too much of my own keto bread. I made this for a friend with MS and she LOVED it. I’ve never made bread pudding before and the custard (pudding) part was insanely easy and fool proof to make. I made Lemon keto bread with the custard minus the cinnamon and put in a half a cup of blueberries and 4 (cut up small) strawberries and drizzled it with a homemade keto white chocolate and it was amazing. Thank you for sharing this recipe, next time I’ll have to try it just the way it is.
