I would guess so - 3 net carbs once you deduct the fibre carbs!!

Elizellen: You can eat this bread with so many different things on it...sweet (splenda) or savory.
Thank you again for the recipe.

Hello all...

Yes the carb count is correct. My loaf makes four good sized slices and since I started making this I have had sloppy joes and boy was I in heaven... It really helps me not feel deprived so that is why we are all so excited to be able to eat some bread that is good for me.... I am allergic to wheat so this is miraculous! And on top of the taste it is extremely quick to make....AND KEEPS ME REGULAR ALONG WITH THE MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS... Who could ask for more!!!

I know this is a silly question but can I eat the whole recipe? It hits the spot with a cup of coffee.

If you have reached the nuts/seeds rung/level of OWL then yes!!
Make sure you have lots of water so all that fibre at once doesnt bung you up though!!

Elizellen: I have been on Atkins for 1 year and love it as a way of life. I found out the hard way that you have to drink lots of water to flush out this flax. I eat half the recipe toasted in the morning and the other half toasted at night. I make it in a pyrex cup and it gives me 4 nice slices.

I agree with you too "L." I think for most people who do low carb the problem sticking with it long-term is that we like the quick fixes that sandwiches provide. In addition, for me I need to get in more Omega 3's and more fiber and this satisfies all of those needs. I've been low carbing on and off for years now never reaching goal because I eventually go off and start eating bread again... I never tried the recipes because I thought that they would all taste like card board. This, however, is so flexible that you can add many things and customize it to fit your needs. Today I had a slice with some sugar free fruit spread, coffee, and a boiled egg. It was satisfying and healthy...and it fills me up until lunch time.... It is odd I was reading another forum and they were discussing the appetitite suppresents and wondering which ones worked... Well, I think this bread is a terrific appetite suppresant...I love oatmeal and this fills me up just like oatmeal does...and provides the same amount of fiber... Ok...enuf already lol....

Skeeweeaka: Funny you said you felt like this bread is an appetite suppressant. I've told a friend the same thing. I eat a slice in the morning and at night. I have to get going because this is morning and I didn't have my slice of flax yet, it's like a treat for me.

Default Flax Bread

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


I made this recipe also, but mine wasn't very thick. Maybe my container I used was too big. I only got 4 thin slices. I used an old tupperware sandwich container.
