Recipe Notes

Substitution options: 

  • 1 tsp of gelatin can be replaced with 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum


  • Allulose can be reduced. If you eliminate it all together try increasing the oven temp to 375-400 degrees in order to get some browning on your loaf.¬† Check for doneness before the whole 40 minutes are up.


  • Arrowroot can be reduced to 1 tbsp or eliminated for a lower carb count.


  • Butter powder can be substituted with mct oil powder for a dairy-free version.


  • 2 tbsp of whole egg powder can be substituted with 2 tsp of yolk powder
