Low Carb Flax Bread

Chances are likely you don't know any places that sell Low Carb Flax Bread - which is really good for you by the way, so here is a handy recipe for how to make it.

Golden Flax Bread

INGREDIENTS

2/3 cup flax meal
1/3 cup almond flour (other nut flours/meals can be substituted)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder*
Salt to taste (I like more salt in my flax bread than I would in other bread)
about 3 tsp olive oil or unrefined coconut oil (or butter, depending on what kind of flavor you want and your specific dietary needs)
2 eggs (1 egg will suffice, but 2 eggs holds together just a bit better)
water to texture desired (it makes a big difference, and the wetter it is, the harder it is to get it to cook all the way through, I go for minimal water needed to get things fluid enough to pour the batter)

*To make these completely grain free use a grain-free baking powder or grain-free baking powder substitution.

INSTRUCTIONS

Mix the dry ingredients together well.

Gently beat the eggs together before adding (optional, but it blends better that way if they're pre-beaten).

This recipe will work for a regular-sized pie tin or small loaf pan. Double the recipe for a more normal-sized bread loaf pan. Do NOT forget to grease the pan well before pouring the batter in or else you will have one heck of a time trying to peel it out of your pan.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bake for approximately 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. To check if it is done use a toothpick or butter knife to poke it in the middle and it should could out clean after you insert it into the center of the bread. Enjoy fresh out of the oven (wait for it to cool down a bit) or at room temperature for a nice sandwich.

VARIATIONS ON THIS RECIPE

Herbed Bread: add small chunks of sharp cheddar cheese, a tablespoon of crushed thyme, a tablespoon of crushed sage, a teaspoon of oregano or bee balm, small handful of fresh chopped rosemary, fresh ground black pepper to taste, and maybe some coarse salt on top. You can even add some green onion, broccoli, or nettles for extra panache if you like.

Sweet Bread: add cinnamon, honey, cardamom, vanilla, and even some fresh fruit like sliced strawberries.

Pancakes: just make the batter thin enough to spread on a hot cast iron pan or griddle. Unsweetened applesauce is nice in the pancakes instead of using water.
