what I've done is add almond meal(3 tablespoons) and wheat bran (3 tabllespoons) and use less flax meal. Also I never let the machine do all the work; I don't trust bread mahines with vital wheat gluten products; most LC bread I've made is just awful..vital gluten is not easy to work with. so i usually let the machine do mixing and kneading, then I'll take it out, shape it and leet it double in bulk for an hour then bake it.
Maybe I've gotten so used to LC breads that I think this one's great since i"ve been eating the truly horrible ones prior to that.

I am a newcomer to this and I don't know if you recieved my reply to your low-carb bread recipe but I just finished baking it and thought that I would have a piece with a cup of coffee. Maybe it is me or my machine but for some reason it came out tough! I was really hoping that this would be the right recipe as most low-carb bread recipes are full of "yuky" ingredients. Thanks & I hope you have some suggestions or that someone does.

Dont you "knead" that sugar to feed the yeast?

or do they just go after the carbs in the gluten?

I tried your recipe and is wonderfull! I did it in the traditional way because I don't have a bread machine...I sustituted the flax meal for psillyum plantago because I runned out of flax. The bread came out beutyfully...just one question..It didn't rise very is normal?

Thumbs up Bread! Real bread!!


Thank you, thank you, thank you. This bread recipe is fantastic! I threw it in the machine last night and out came the best smelling, crusty, delicious REAL bread!

I adjusted your recipe a little by substituting the flax seed for LSA (that's a mix of ground linseed (flax), ground sunflowers & ground almonds - common in Australia). I did everything else just as you did.

Here's what I did....

1 tspn yeast
1 cup gluten flour
1/4 cup soy flour
1/3 cup LSA
1/2 tspn salt
2 Tbspns Splenda
1 Tbspns soft butter (I'll try olive oil next time)
1 egg
1/2 cup water

Add to bread machine in order listed. Bake on 'rapid' setting.

Worked it out in Calorie King as follows...

Totals per loaf:

Carbs: 54.4
Protein: 141.1
Fat: 49.2
Calories 1211

At 14 slices per loaf:

Carbs: 3.9
Protein: 10
Fat: 3.5
Calories: 87

Actually, I ended up getting 16 slices from the loaf so the counts would be slightly lower.

Thanks again. I really thought I had seen the last of bread.

Default Best LC bread!

Thanks so much! I thought my bread maker would be gathering dust from here on out. I had tried an Atkins sour dough mix last time I used the machine. I had put it in one day just before I left the house. When I came home, my whole house just stunk. I hoped the bread would taste better than it smelled, but it didn't. Thankfully, that stuff is no longer on the market (no small surprise). What were those people thinking???

With much fear & trepidation, I tried this recipe. The first time was as posted (revised). My second attempt, I used olive oil & added garlic powder, Italian seasonings & parmesan cheese (1/4 C.). I also added about 2 tbs more water. Both times, my house had that lovely fragrance of fresh, home-made bread & the taste & texture was wonderful. This one's a keeper!

We have a bread store in colorado called GREAT HARVEST BREAD . They make all kinds of breads including low carb. It is wonderful. They have a web site (google Great Harvest Bread) maybe they ship.

Any suggestions for what could be used to sub for the soy flour? Anyone had any experience subbing coconut flour (you'd definetly have to increase liquid) or anything?
