Flax Seed Bread, Low Carb (Zero Net Carbs!)

Submitted by: DARLYNG


Flax Meal is high in carb but also high in fiber, so there is less than a gram of net carbs per serving. See video here: Flax Meal is high in carb but also high in fiber, so there is less than a gram of net carbs per serving. See video here:
Number of Servings: 1


    1/4 cup Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), dark or light
    1 tsp romano cheese (optional)
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    Dash of salt
    1 large egg
    2 Tbs. water


You could add a few drops of liquid stevia if you like a sweet bread, or sprinkle in some poppy or caraway seeds for a more savory bread, use your imagination!


It's healthier if you grind your own flax seeds, but pre-ground seeds will also work in this recipe. Grease a 5" X 5" glass pan with butter or coconut oil (you could use a plastic pan, but since this is going into a microwave, I do not recommend it). Add ground flax seeds, cheese, baking powder & salt to a cereal bowl & mix well. Add egg & water & mix again. Pour into greased glass pan & microwave on high for two minutes, turning after one minute. Slice lengthwise if you want two pieces to make a sandwich.

Save time by mixing these dry ingredients in advance:
I lb. package of Bob's Red Mill Organic Gluten-Free Whole Ground Golden Flaxseed Meal
5 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. aluminium-free baking powder
5 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp. caraway seeds
1 tsp. salt

Mix thoroughly & store in an airtight container. To prepare one serving, mix 1/3 cup of this mix with one beaten large egg & 2 Tbsp. water, following directions above.

    I omitted the cheese, and ate it warm with natural peanut butter. Mine didn't quite come out ready to make a sandwich; maybe next time I'll try letting it cool on a baking rack.

    I made it a 2nd time as pancakes. Cook about 75% done before flipping. - 4/25/13
