I think this bread is best sliced and toasted. Coconut flour can give baked goods a dry texture in your mouth and toasting this low carb bread helps with that a lot. Plus toasting cinnamon bread always gives it more flavor. Best of all, it makes the butter melt into the little cracks and crevices. And don’t forget the cinnamon and butter smells that will waft through the house.
Low Carb Cinnamon Raisin Bread Tips
- This is considered a “quick bread” as I use baking powder as a leavening agent. This makes it much faster to make.
- The recipe is sized for one serving. If you want to make more, I found that I just multiplied everything by the amount of mugs I want to serve.
- Make sure to whisk the egg white until it’s foamy, but not stiff like meringue.
- If you want to remove the raisins, you can try to use dried cranberries after rehydrating them in a some water and a sugar substitute of your choice.
- Toasting the bread slices and adding butter or cream cheese takes this recipe to the next level of flavor.
Coconut flour, flaxseed meal, and almond flour stand in for wheat flour in this recipe. For my baking and cooking needs, these are staples in my pantry. Best of all, without wheat flour, this keto bread is gluten free.

Hi @Cat, if you want to increase the recipe, press the PRINT recipe and at the top, you can see it allows you to change the serving size. Just so you know, 1/2 cup is equivelent to 8 tablespoons, so increase the serving to 8 and that way, you can do your recipe in cup, even though it keeps it as tablespoons in the recipe, when its printed. I will try this recipe today, fingers crossed it comes out good!
I found your recipes from Wes?s High Falutin Low Carb.
I really love that you use egg whites instead of a whole egg! I don?t like the egginess of many mug breads. I usually have eggs with a mug bread to keep total carbs down, so this is a real plus.
Now my hubby wants me to try using egg whites for Chaffles! We have high cholesterol, and have doctors who are concerned about that. But I digress…
I would call this bread ?small but mighty.? It?s just enough raisin bread to satisfy my craving for raisin bread.
Thank you so much. I?m looking forward to making your kalamata mug bread and your other recipes
Has anyone ever made this recipe in a larger amount? I’d like to try it in a loaf pan but I dont have the math skills to figure the measurements correctly.

I don?t see any way to change the serving size in the recipe.
If you click on the number of servings there’s a bar that shows up that you can move up or down.
I was told to turn your breadpan sideways upon taking out of oven to rest until cool and then turn pan right side up, shouldn’t sink. Bread should stay fully rised
That’s true..but thats with yeast breads
