Hong Kong is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines, but keto bread hasn’t been part of that for too long. We’ll show you where to find keto bread in Hong Kong and what keto bread options are available so you can enjoy ketogenic living.
This guest blog is written by Sne Epstein who is a keto bread baker by profession. You can follow her on Instagram.
What is keto bread?
A ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate, moderate protein, and high-fat diet. Frequently referred to as LCHF (low carb, high fat), it is important to note that it is only high in nutritious fats such as nuts, seeds, coconut, avocados, ghee, olive oil, yogurt, etc. Besides sugar, carbs (all flours, rice, grains) are eliminated which also makes it gluten-free by design.
Keto bread is flourless, has a distinct flavor and texture compared to conventional bread but more importantly, it does not result in a peak in energy followed by a dip. Instead, it helps maintain your energy levels constant and you will be impressed by how it keeps you fuller for longer. There is no spike in your insulin levels which consuming regular bread gives you. This makes it diabetic-friendly too. Additionally, the absence of wheat results in a gluten-free loaf of taste and health!
Keto bread is a great way to add healthy fats and protein to your diet. It is exceptionally low in carbohydrates (as low as 2.4 grams net carbs per slice!) making it perfect for ketosis.

Making instant keto bread at home
Making your own keto bread is easy, and all you need are a few simple ingredients. I’m always on the lookout for a delicious and easy keto bread recipe. I’ve tried many different recipes, but none beat this one by jenniferbanz.com! The process is so quick – you can make microwaveable keto bread in under 2 minutes with just 5 ingredients from your own kitchen!
Ingredients for making your own keto bread:
- 3 Tablespoons of Almond Flour
- 1 Tablespoon of oil or melted butter
- ½ teaspoon Baking powder
- 1 large egg, beaten
- Pinch of salt (skip if your butter is salted)
Nutrition for 1 serving using almond flour: 315 calories / 29g fat / 5g carbs / 2g fiber / 11g protein
Use a round microwavable ramekin (a bowl or mug will also work fine) that is 4 inches in diameter or a 4-inch x 4-inch microwave-safe container. Add the melted butter or the oil to the dish and swirl the butter around. Next, add the rest of the ingredients into the container and mix them all together with a fork. Tap on the counter a few times to remove all the air bubbles. Put the container into a microwave on high for 90 seconds. After that, remove it from the microwave and let it cool.

Best keto bakes in Hong Kong
My love for keto baking was born when my husband opted for the keto lifestyle for health reasons. Under my brand Keto Aviatrix, I sell sweet and savory keto and gluten-free products like bread, donuts, cakes, quiches, pies, and buns. All of my products are baked to order and customized to client-specific requirements as needed.
My best sellers are my Keto Almond Chia Bread, Keto Cupcakes, and my Keto Spinach and Feta Quiche.
I bake from a licensed kitchen and my Keto bread is available at Foodie Yard, a health food store in Causeway Bay with a branch in Admiralty. Alternatively, all my products are available to order through my Instagram page. WhatsApp orders are also available.
Health foods are usually associated with a hefty price tag which I am not in favor of and hence do my best to offer keto products at reasonable prices to the Hong Kong market. Delivery options are also available to all parts of Hong Kong.

Keto bread is not the only keto-friendly food available in Hong Kong. There are plenty of keto products you can buy in HK if you know where to look. We particularly like Infiniti C, The Cakery, and Sweetpea Cafe for sweet products. For other keto-essentials, you can’t beat The Store or iherb.
