Default Vicki's Garden Wheat-Free Harvest Bread

1 c baking mix (see down below)
2 T. cinnamon
stevia/erythritol to taste
2 T. baking powder
3 eggs
3 T. coconut oil
1 C. chia gel (1 T chia to 8 T water)
3-5 finely sliced dates(I add to the chia gel and let sit for a bit to sweeten up)
1/2 C. chopped nuts and or seeds
small grated zucchini
(I have also played with various seeds, nuts, grated carrot, mashed cauliflower, pumpkin, berries, etc. Lots of variations!)

10 very nice slices... each one:
92cal 5.5 nc 6.7g fat 3.5g protein
Baked at 350 degrees for 30 - 45 min

Unfortunately...for those on Atkins Induction...you need to wait until OWL.
Here is my baking mix...all low carb flours:

Vicki's Low Carb Baking Mix
1 lb almondmeal
1 lb coconut flour
1 lb oat fiber (not oat bran or flour!)
1/2 lb golden flaxmeal (1/2 lb less - I usually add some roasted flaxseed or chia seed to recipe)
Counts per 1/4 c. are about:
Cal 65 NC 4 Fat 4g Protein 4g loaded w fiber...sorry I forgot to figure that amount...will refigure and update later.
Need to refrigerate because of flaxmeal. Makes about 20 heaping cups of flour.

Also....if you want a lovely, healthy, quick recipe for jam...this is it! It calls for strawberries but I use whatever berries I have on hand. Delicious!

Very hearty and nice for toasting and having with some butter (or nut butter) and berry/chia jam. I find this does not activate the craving/addictions that I got from wheat breads.

Can you recommend a substitute for oat fiber for those of us who are gluten free?

Hi Nancy,

Psyllium powder?

Here is a link to a well recommended cookbook that can surely give you some ideas (you can read a preview with much info, recipes,etc. and get an idea), The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking by Peter Reinhart and Denene Wallace at
http://www.amazon.com/Joy-Gluten-Fr...s/dp/1607741164

Also, another link addressing oat fiber being gluten-free (which I am sure is debatable) http://www.wellnessbakeries.com/ingredients/oat-fiber/

I chose oat fiber because it is low carb, tasty and I have very high LDL cholesterol that it is supposed to help lower. I don't eat wheat or grains but oat fiber does not bother me.

Hopefully you will find something in there. I got tired of always using almondmeal/flaxmeal for baking and added coconut flour/oat fiber and like them with no problems.

Best!

Vicki

This recipe looks wonderful, Vicki. I'm going to print it out right now! And I'd like to try your mix in some other things as well.
