Are you following a low carb or gluten free lifestyle (I refuse to use the word diet) and missing bread? Need a bread roll for your keto and paleo lunch plan? Behold the flaxseed bread roll with just 2g net carbs each!
After dropping the husband off at the airport this week, my mind wandered to what I could bake that I enjoy and he wouldn’t. I love flaxseed bread which he is not as keen on so thought I would try this in roll form and add psyllium husk powder to make it a bit more “bread-like”. I was so delighted with the results that I shared it immediately on Facebook and the response made me push this recipe at the top of the list to publish.
Since the rolls contain psyllium husk powder and flaxseed they are very high in fibre and filling. I munched two for lunch and they kept for going for hours. I used golden flaxseed flour but you could use the darker one if you wish. I am just so excited about this recipe that I’ve already got a list of variations and flavours to try out so watch this space for more healthy bread!
Below are a couple I had for lunch with avocado, tomato and lettuce with a slathering of mayonnaise. Very tasty and filling.
