The best keto bread isn’t easy to find. I tried some pret-ty gnarly loaves of the stuff to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Some of them are chalky and sort of dissolve in your mouth as you chew. Some of them just plain taste bad. But I sussed out a few that’ll do if you can’t eat carbs or sugar but absolutely need meat and fixins on bread.
One nice thing for people who abide by a keto diet: There’s a good number of keto bread options on the market. Store brands are even getting in on the action—and at a much more reasonable price point than some of their predecessors, which for a long time seemed to exist only at pricey health food stores. Keto bread for the people! Anyway, here’s the best tasting keto bread I tried during our in-office taste test.

- Kroger CarbMaster Wheat Bread
Considering it doesn’t contain sugar, keto bread sure leans sweet. This loaf from Kroger’s house brand—which contains just 4 grams of net carbs per slice—is no exception. But, if you don’t mind a sweet wheat bread, I will say this definitely feels more bread-like than a lot of the other keto bread options we tried. It doesn’t turn to dust in your mouth! I’d load this up with a bunch of savory stuff to counteract the sweetness. I’m thinking turkey and lots of mayo and brown mustard. It’s not the best keto bread we tried, but it’s totally acceptable if carby bread is off the menu for you.

- Sola Sweet & Buttery
Spoiler alert: Sola makes the best keto bread we tried. Although I preferred Sola Sweet Oat to the brand’s Sweet & Buttery, this is quite good, too. It’s kind of like their take on a Hawaiian sweet bread, but with just 2 grams of net carbs per slice. Sola really nailed the texture of genuine bread when it set out to make a keto bread—it also doesn’t turn to dust in your mouth! I did think this had a slight aftertaste I didn’t detect in the Sweet Oat, and that gave the other loaf a bit of an edge.

I’ll be honest: I didn’t want to like Unbread. There’s something about the name and the branding that rubs me the wrong way (as a friend of mine put it, it’s like it’s “apologizing for [its] bread-y nature”). I will also be honest about this: Unbread is weird. It’s very spongy and a little wet. I know, I know, that sounds terrible, but I promise it’s kind of good, especially when you’ve tasted a bunch of downright dusty keto bread. This one slides right down the ol’ gullet. It has a good wheat berry sort of flavor, too, and it’s much saltier than other keto breads. If you can get past the texture (or if you toast it), this tastes pretty good.

- Sola Sweet Oat
Bless Sola for figuring out how to make keto bread that actually eats like bread. Where other keto breads are made with things like almond flour, egg whites, and pea protein, three of Sola’s top ingredients (besides water and oil) are wheat gluten, wheat starch, and wheat protein. That has to help its cause! I bet this would make a really good French toast—soak it in some egg with a low-cal sweetener, toss it in a frying pan, and then top it with a sugar-free syrup (we recommend Cary’s).
