How to make a great tasting focaccia-style low-carb bread replacement.See Transcript

Hi, Cliff Wildman with

Food. If you’re on a low carb diet, bread can be your arch-enemy, but there are some substitutes for bread out there and today I’m going to show you how to make foccacia-style flax bread. It’s very high in fiber, very healthy, and goes great with a low carb diet.

Low Carb Flax Bread Ingredients

For this recipe we’ll need:

1/3 cup of oil
1/2 cup of water
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of artificial sweetener
1 tablespoon of baking powder
5 eggs beaten together well
2 cups of flax seed meal – you can find this at most grocery stores in the baking aisle
First preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the Low Carb Bread Ingredients

In a large bowl, pour the flax seed meal, the artificial sweetener, the salt, and the baking powder and mix well.

Now we’ll add oil, the water and the eggs and mix those together well. Let this set for two to three minutes to thicken.
Form the Low Carb Flax Bread

Here I have silicon mat on a baking tray. You can use oiled parchment paper. And now we’ll pour the batter into the pan, once you have it all there, you can spread this out on your pan to whatever thickness you desire, but it should be at least a 1/2 inch think.

Bake the Low Carb Bread

We’ll put this into the oven at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes. And you can pull it out and you just want to push on the bread and if it bounces back a bit it is done. Finally let this cool for about twenty minutes, and then take a spatula or knife and cut the bread as you like.

That’s the recipe. This is a delicious, nutritious bread substitute. It’s great for a low carb diet. Thanks for watching, and for more videos visit About.com

Paleo Bread Recipe

This gluten free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.
Gluten free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread. Here’s a gluten free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging. I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads. It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which makes it almost have a kind of “whole wheat” thing going on, and it has a lovely little bit of sweet flavor from the honey (I used honey that my friend Shirley harvested from her bee hives and sent to me as a gift –I treasure it).

I’ve been working on this gluten free bread recipe for several months and have tested it a couple of dozen times. In fact, every time I create a recipe I test each and every ingredient addition or subtraction. That’s why I think it’s kinda funny when people leave comments below recipes (or on Facebook, Twitter and in my forums) asking if such and such ingredient substitution will work.

For example, with this recipe, I tested changes as minute as 1 teaspoon baking soda versus 1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda. Same with the apple cider vinegar. I tested this recipe with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar and with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. I could go on and on. I varied the number of eggs in several batches. I played with numerous ingredient combinations to come up with this recipe.

It’s just hard work folks. I wish I had a crystal recipe ball that I could look into to answer all of your substitution questions. I don’t. So be adventurous. If you have an idea, test it. Then come back here and let us know if it worked!
