Breads/ Gluten Free/ Low Carb

Flaxseed Bread Loaf

A flaxseed bread loaf that is a healthier replacement for bread as is is high in fibre and low in carbs.  Gluten free too, this makes a great bread for toast. 

If you want a bread that is very low in carbs and gluten free, then this is the loaf for you since flaxseed is low in carbs and also has a high omega 3 fatty acid content (33 times higher than wheat germ).   The fibre content is high too.  The joy of flax!

I adapted this recipe from  http://www.blogilates.com/blog/2011/03/09/no-carb-bread/.  

This bread tastes like a wholewheat loaf and I love it toasted, slathered in butter.   I usually toast this under the oven grill rather than in the toaster because it makes a moist loaf and is a challenge to get out of toaster!

You can make this with just the egg whites and it works out fine.  I’ve also made this with 5 egg yolks and have been happy with it.  It’s up to you whether you want to add the egg yolks and it will depend upon the size of your eggs really.   See how you go as you make the mixture and when you get to the stage that you could add egg yolks, see how thick the mixture is.  If it’s too dry, add the egg yolks one by one until you are happy with it.  Nothing worse than eggy bread!  

 

This is very low in carbs and is also gluten free.   A great way to enjoy flaxseed in your diet.    It keeps very well for at least a week in the fridge in a container. 

You could add herbs and spices to this flaxseed bread if you are not too keen on the taste.  Or perhaps some nuts or dried fruit too?  I’ve made a flaxseed bread flavoured with sundried tomato, olive and Feta cheese that you might also enjoy.

    Perfect bread loaf recipe!!

    I use Sprouted flaxseed (milled/ground) from Linwoods – its much more nutritionally available and so healthier. You can find Linwoods Sprouted flaxseed on Amazon.

    Thanks for your time, great information!

    I made this recipe today with a few changes – subbed the water with almond milk because I use it in another flax bread recipe I make – added 3 Tbsp of Xyla (again from another recipe) – cut the salt to 1/2 tsp because the other recipe I make does not call for any – and finally, baked at 400 for the first 10 min as someone else suggested. But here is the kicker! After I had it in the oven for about 10 minutes I opened my microwave to heat my lunch and there sat the melted coconut oil that I forgot to add! I figured my bread was ruined, but it is not! In fact, it is not nearly as wet as the usual flax bread I make and that I noted a few commented on here about. Who knew!

    Hi Angela,
    I purchased a bag of golden flax meal from Costco today as I drink flax milk. We are hitting the road for 1.5 months and my milk may become hard to come by therefore, I am intending to make it on the road. I cannot find a flax milk recipe with meal – they all are from the seed. Do you have a resource for this?

    Hi Angela… First off, thanks a bunch for sharing this recipe! We just put it in the oven and we’re excited to try it… It’s already giving a great smell. One thing we were wondering about as I was plugging the recipe into MyFitnessPal… Is the baking powder supposed to be 1 tablespoon or 1 teaspoon? Your recipe calls for 1 tablespoon / 5g, but 1 tablespoon is about 14g, and 1 teaspoon is 4.8g. We used a tablespoon this time around, but just wanted to make sure that’s the correct amount in case we decide to try this again.
    Thanks again!

    Just made this recipe and while it was baking it had a nice rise. But, after a while it deflated and I’m so disappointing. Apparently I’ve made this before because I have your recipe printed out and on it I’ve written “very good” 🙂 Anyway, does the deflating happen to you? I haven’t read all the comments to see if you’ve addressed this issue, sorry.

      I used 1/3 cup liquid egg whites and the 2 whites from the eggs. I beat the white, go the peaks. When I poured it into the flaxseed mix, there was a lot of unbeaten liquid on the bottom of the bowl. My bread came out ok but it was only about an inch high. Do you think this was caused by the boxed egg whites or didn’t I beat them enough?

    I gave this a try tonight with a slight variation. I used 5 eggs and instead of seperating the yokes from the whites, I whisked them together with an electric mixer that has a whisk attachment. Then I baked it in a cast iron bread pan that I coated with butter before pouring the mixture in. It came out real good.

    Just made the loaf–came out well. I added maple extract. One thing that was not clear with the directions–it calls for 5 eggs; but only the whites are used? Or do the yolks get added in when it says add eggs! I made it without the yolks–but would like to know for sure.

    This is so amazingly good straight from the oven with butter! It’s my go-to bread that I make all the time. A tip for getting it to come out of the pan easily is to use melted coconut oil to grease the pan. To remove the loaf, use a flexible spatula down the sides and to kind of wiggle it under the bottom a bit. Then when you turn it upside down, it pops right out. 9:00PM here and I just finished making a batch to put in the fridge for the week (minus the slice I just ate). 🙂
    It makes great garlic bread for a quick lunch or make French toast with it.

    This is excellent bread! First time in 2 years I got my BLT! It does take something like an hour to toast 😉 but it is truly tasty. I have a couple of quick questions. Like some others mine caved in the middle. My b.soda is fresh and my ‘thought’ was that it actually started rising in the pan as I ended the ‘folding’ in of egg whites so I swiped it across the top and flattened it? Could that have had an impact? I always take folding as well gently swirling in, not mixing until it is fully combined, but where you could see an egg white swirl it was actually white and it was somehow airy?

    Can you suggest?

    Also, would psyllium husk help this bread? I read where it really is key to gluten free bread. But you’re the expert. The bread is moist and there is condensation in the container in the fridge… I’m concerned it will go bad and wondered how you store it.
    Despite all… it is delicious and at 1 carb who is going to ever complain! I also had one slice for breakfast and am still full way past lunch.

    Thanks for all your hard work. I’ve made other things from your site and love them.

      Hi Ros! Glad you are enjoying the recipes and thanks for popping by! Think the swiping of the top probably deflated it but the trick is not to overwork this mixture too much too. I love the idea of psyllium husk to the recipe too…definitely think it would help and is something I will try! Perhaps 1 to 2 tablespoons. I store my bread in the fridge and wrap a piece of kitchen towel around it. Happy baking!

        So your mixture should be light and airy – making it easy to add the egg whites?
        I’ll try again with coconut oil this time.

          This time it worked! I was able to happily “pour” the mixture into the silicon bread pan. Beautiful and light. I changed brands of flax. Thanks !

    I have tried this many many times but I get more or less always the same issue: the outside becomes gummy/chewy instead of crusty, and the inside stays soggy and feels uncooked no matter how long I cook it, is there any advise for this kind of thing? 🙁

      Hmmm… Perhaps one less egg? Sounds like the mixture is too moist.

      Have you changed the recipe in any way? What size loaf pan are you using? How long have you left it in the oven? When all else fails, you can cut slices and then toast the bread. That is what I generally do. I’ve baked it up to double the time usually given. Be sure to use a toothpick (or spaghetti stick) to poke into the loaf to find out if it is cooked.

    Some have mentioned how best to store. I find it easy to make two loaves whilst I am messing up so I freeze it. Easiest thing to do is slice it and then cut some parchment paper tabs and insert between the slices. That way the slices will separate without un-thawing the whole loaf.

    Hi Necia for the larger loaf what size tin did you use? In addition how much did you increase the other ingredients by?

      Hi Barbara, My loaf pan is approx 9″ x 5.5″. I think I worked it out about right. By dividing the weight of the two cups by 5, I got 43 grams (you might get something a bit different) and times by 6. Then I just added an extra egg (6), extra coconut oil (6) and then took a guess at the remaining items. I think Ruby is right in that mixing the wet ingredients really well helps. I made sure my oven was hot – I actually had to turn it up to 400 to get a 350 reading which amazed me – and then worked quickly adding the wet to the dry – you can feel the baking powder start working and I wanted to get the egg white in as quickly as possible. A big balloon whisk was great for this and the mixture came close to filling the pan but it cooked very nicely and rose without spilling over. Baked for between 45 / 50 minutes. Hope this helps.

    Second time around, this bread recipe came out wonderful. The first time around I was being careful not to break up the egg white too much, the second time I used a large whisk to mix the egg white in thoroughly, but quickly before the baking soda lost it’s purpose. I also tested the oven temperature and found my oven way off so increased the temperature. I’m sure this was a big factor too. I wanted a larger (thicker) loaf, so weighed the two cups of flaxseed, divided by 5, (I got 43 grams) and increased the other ingredients accordingly. Trying hard to keep my husband gluten free (as he has lost so much weight) and he absolutely loves this bread, toasted or not. It is a real winner. Thank you. Now I need a bread I can use to make gluten free stuffing for Thanksgiving… any ideas??

        Thanks for the recommendation. I tried this today and it is a perfect consistency for stuffing – but equally it is a delicious bread (so says hubby again)…. I made it as a single loaf, but I can see it making very nice rolls. This is definitely another winner for me. Do you think it would work if I doubled the quantities to make a larger loaf?

        Bake it for longer – I sometimes leave it in for 30 – 45 minutes. Test it with a cake tester or I use a piece of spaghetti – if it comes ouf moist then let it stay a bit longer. Another option is make toast of slices of your loaf.

    I make muffins with this recipe. Here are my changes:

    2 cups golden ground flax seed
    5 eggs
    1/3 C oil or use apple sauce or mashed banana
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar or Splenda (I use Splenda)
    1/3 cup each of your choice of the following (or all):
    flax seeds
    ground almonds
    raisins
    unsweetened coconut
    nuts of some kind (your choice)

    METHOD

    Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
    whisk together all wet ingredients
    In a larger bowl, whisk all dry ingredients
    Mix wet into dry
    Scoop into a greased muffin tins and bake for 15 minutes until firm and golden.
    These have the consistency of very moist bran muffins

    Oh my! I’ve got to make this!
    We miss home made bread so much. The only time I make it is to make my honey challah for Christmas and/or Thanksgiving.

    And your description is mouth watering. The only thing I wonder about is the flaxseed taste. I’ve tried the oil for salad dressing due to the omega 3 in it but we both didn’t like the taste. Too strong.
    Where do you get your flaxseed?
