Default Flax Bread

I make a microwaved bread from flax

1 ounce of melted butter
2 medium eggs
4 tablespoons of flax
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

Mix together and put in the microwave and nuke for 3 minutes.

I havent tried the bake mixes so dont know how like real bread they are but I find this makes a fairly closetextured bread that tastes to me like wholemeal bread.

On another board a member suggested you could add parmesan and some herbs to make a savoury loaf but I havent tried it yet.

Totally induction legal for Atkins

About 570 cals for the whole recipe - I get 8 slices out of it
Other info - whole recipe has
Total fat 48 gms
Carbs 18gms (including 15 gms fibre) - so only 3 net carbs
Protein 20 gms

This sounds great! Thanks! I'm going to try it! I love low-carb bread substitutes and I love flax meal.

What size container, plate, etc. do you nuke it in?

p.s. I'm assuming you use ground flax meal and not whole flax seeds?

You are allowed flax seed on Induction. It is used as a fibre in aid of constipation.

The flax seed in the aforementioned recipe is ground. I grind mine in a coffee mill set aside for the purpose.

A "Glad" or "Ziplock" sandwich container (the plastic ones like "Tupperware") makes the ideal size for making this - because when you slice it, it is like bread slices.

Sometimes, rather than the two eggs, I'll use one egg and some sour cream. You certainly can vary the recipe.

Once you hit the OWL Berry Rung, adding a few berries (blueberries, etc.) can add a nice change (and even a dash of cinnamon).

Thumbs up I've just had a grilled-cheese!

Fantastic recipe, thank you posting this for us to find! I haven't had anything that resembled bread in sooo long, and that was quick, easy to make and tasted great!

Just thinking of the possibilities gets my ming going...Smoked meat, Club Sandwich, grilled cheese...

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

A pastry chef friend of mine suggested approx. 2 tbl spoon would do the trick. To be honest I never measured my butter, I used about 2 tbl spoons and the bread comes our perfect!

Okay, just a little confused here -

do you mean those square little sandwich keepers? If so, are you making one slice at a time? How many servings do you get out of ingredients as is?

I've found that baking with flax gives a very moist dense texture - is this the texture of this "bread"?

I tried this tonight- was pretty darned good! I was eating it and thought that it would make good french toast. I have some left over- tomorrow I may try dipping in a mixture of egg, cinnamon and splenda and frying it for some french toast!

I toasted it in the frying pan with dinner and added a bit of cheddar and it was lovely.

Ok so i made Flax French Toast!!! I used the basic recipe above. I made it last night and left the slices in a plastic container in the fridge overnight.

Then this morning I made a mixture of heavy cream, 1 egg, 1 packet of splenda, and cinnamon. I beat it all together and then soaked each slice of flax bread in it. I then fried it in a nonstick pan on each side until they were browned. I topped with a little butter and caramel davinci syrup. I LOVE whole grain/buckwheat pancakes and that is what this tasted like! It was SO good.

So, you can make an eight slice loaf of bread in THREE minutes. This is incredible!!!! How do you know it's uniformly done? Do you put a toothpick in it? Have you tried baking it in a regular oven?
