Very low carb bread




I have very recently caught onto the trend of using almond flour, and there's no going back! It makes such a good substitute for so many grain-y things; flour, breadcrumbs and even oats... It's so versatile I've been buying a bag a week for the last few weeks.

My favourite use for it by far, though has to be in this amazing low carb bread. I call the bread amazing for several reasons; it is very low carb, it's absolutely delicious and also it requires no kneading so it is so quick and easy to make-if you do it right you only need to dirty two dishes while making it!

Even better than that, it's packed with flaxseeds/linseeds which are so so good for you, and it has less than 2g of carbs per slice (when the loaf is cut into 20 slices- which is can be easily).

You will need (makes one medium/large sized loaf):
  • 8 eggs 
  • 2 cups ground linseeds/flaxseeds- you can buy these in the supermarket already ground- sometimes called flax meal
  • 1 cup ground almonds- also sometimes called almond meal
  • 1/2 cup of water 
  • A small pinch of baking powder
Then to make it:
  • Beat the eggs with the water in a large bowl
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and beat together well- you can also do this all in a food processor; just make sure you add the eggs and water first, mix them then add everything else and mix again until it's all completely combined 
  • Pour into a baking tin- I lined mine with greaseproof paper first- and bake at 200 degrees C/400 degrees F for 20 minutes 
  • Remove from the oven and enjoy hot, with thick lashings of butter!

I hope you love it- sure you will! It keeps really well in the fridge and toasts really well. I enjoy mine with creamy avocado, pink Himalayan salt and chilli flakes nearly every morning- yum!
