Does cinnamon raisin bread have sugar?

I don’t really love foods that are high in protein. I’ll eat meat because I need the nutrients it supplies me but I spent years being a vegetarian and I prefer fruit, vegetables, and grains to animal products. I’d much rather have toast or oatmeal (or I don’t really love foods that are high in protein. I know, that must sound crazy being I’m on a low carb, keto lifestyle. I’ll eat meat because I need the nutrients it supplies me but I spent years being a vegetarian and I prefer fruit, vegetables, and grains to animal products. I’d much rather have toast or oatmeal (or donuts!) for breakfast and forgo the eggs. Give me a salad over a steak any day of the week.

So, it’s been a goal for me to create low carb copies of the foods I love. Like turning cinnamon raisin bread into low carb cinnamon bread with raisins. If you remove the raisins, I think this cinnamon bread could be called keto cinnamon bread as the carbs drop. Without the chopped raisin, it’s under 4 net carbs that totally works for my low carb lifestyle.

My trick to making this low carb bread recipe is to substitute wheat flour with t coconut flour and almond flour. Further, I toss the sugar and use a sugar substitute

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.

    Me again…I had the other half this morning after letting it sit over night. EVEN BETTER! (But it still needs more cinnamon). This is now my go to lo-carb bread! I’m going to try a larger loaf and see if it works. Fingers crossed! The best lo-carb bread recipe I have tried yet – even without the cinnamon! Texture and taste so much like a multi-grain bread. Thanks so much for this recipe!!!

    OK, so I tried it. Not at all dry. Actually pretty moist when it came out of the microwave but using a tall mug was totally unnecessary. The mug was 5 inches tall and the bread rose to only an inch and a half (and yes all my ingredients were fresh). Also not nearly enough cinnamon flavor. I do like the texture so I will tweak this by doubling the cinnamon and using a small jelly jar next time instead of a mug..Definitely worth working with even tho the net carbs and sodium are higher than specified.

    1. Ok… I don’t know why it didn’t rise for you? Usually it rises to the top and then sinks some. I redid the nutritional info with my new calculator and it’s basically the same but I think your calculator counted the carbs in the xylitol/erythritol sweetener which usually isn’t counted since it doesnt affect blood sugars.

    2. 5 stars
      As for the net carbs, you were right on the money! When I re=calculated it using erythritol with zero net carbs it came down to just under 4 net carbs. Just made a double batch – doubled the cinnamon and upped the baking powder by 25% and hit the jackpot! I AM IN CINNAMON BREAD HEAVEN!

  3. I don’t know what I am missing but I plugged the ingredients into the recipe calculator on SparkPeople and everything came out pretty much the same EXCEPT the sodium was twice as high because you did not specify unsalted butter. But the carbs came out much different… 13.2 total carbs. Fiber was the same but that makes the Net carbs about 7 – not 4.3. Trying it now anyway
