I’ve been trying to cut down on my carbs recently; I eat way to much bread, pasta, rice and processed foods. So in an attempt to get nice and healthy and toned for summer I’ve been cutting out all of the above (well as much as possible).
It’s easy enough during the week, but come the weekend, it’s almost impossible to not munch on something naughty.
So when Rosie from TheLondoner posted a recipe of her Mum’s Low Carb Bread, I knew I had to make it straight away!
You will need:
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup of flax meal (I used Linwood’s Flaxseed, which I’m guessing is the same as flax meal)
- 3tbsp water
- Half cup of ground almonds
- 1tsp baking powder
- Half tsp salt
- 1 Small loaf tin
First up, switch your oven on to 200 degrees.
Crack your eggs into a bowl, add your water and give it all a good stir.
Next put your dry ingredients into a separate bowl and combine.
Add these dry ingredients to your egg and water mix, then stir it all together.
Apologies for the blurry pictures below… someone forgot to change the shutter setting on my camera! Pour the mix into a loaf tin and cook in the oven for 20-25mins.
Voila! Turn it out and leave to cool on a wire rack.
I decided to make a little bacon sandwich using these pre-cooked bacon rashers from M&S. I am a bit obsessed with these at the moment. I originally bought them to add to salads, but can’t help but munch on them whenever I’m feeling a bit peckish. They are delish!
This “bread” is really quite tasty. It’s quite spongy, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, although it would be nice if it wasn’t quite so dense. But I’m not sure how you’d get it fluffier.
It’s a great bread substitute. Someones you just want a nice and quick snack and there’s nothing that fills that hole like a slice of toast. Now you can have that yummy bit of toast, and not worry about the carbs of the bloat!
