Low Carb Rosemary Flax Bread

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Sometimes a good ole fashioned turkey or peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch sounds like heaven.  Since going Paleo and cutting out wheat, I usually substitute bread on sandwiches and burgers for lettuce.  I mean... lettuce wraps are amazing but lets be real sometimes you just need a real sandwich, bread included.  This bread recipe is not only super low carb it tastes beyond delicious.

I made sandwiches of this last week for my sister and her husband who came over for lunch.  My sister's husband took a bite and said, "This is better than regular bread!"  And this is coming from a guy who I am pretty sure considers wheat bread a necessary food group.  

What you will need:
  • 1 1/3 cup of  whole ground flax seed meal 
  • 1 1/3 cup of blanched almond meal
  • 2 tsp of baking soda
  • 6 tbs of olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tsp of garlic salt (I used garlic salt with a blend of sea salt, roasted garlic, onion and parsley)
  • 2 tbs of chopped rosemary (I used fresh) 
  • 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast (optional) 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree. 
  2. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients.  
  3. In a small bowl combine all the wet ingredients. 
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until they are fully blended together.
  5. Pour batter into greased loaf pan and make sure it is evenly distributed. 
  6. Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Edges should be nice and brown when done.
Tips- seasoning this bread recipe is key to it tasting great.  Do not skimp on this part.  You can be creative with what you put it in.  Also, if you notice your batter is a little runny, add more almond flour.  It is seems too dry or sticky add a tiny bit more water.

Wait until it cools and when it does, you can slice it just like you would a normal loaf of bread. Enjoy!

Makes 13-14 slices of bread and each slice has approximately 3 grams of effective carbohydrate.  Boom! (I felt like typing that)

Sounds awesome! Is it 2 T of chopped rosemary or 2 T rosemary, chopped?

Sally - 2 tbs of chopped rosemary :) Thanks for noticing that! Fixed it above.

Ashley said...

So the the garlic/rosemary combo is actually good with a sweet kind of a sandwich like pb&J? I'm having a hard time imagining this combo. :-)

Either way...I'll be making this pronto! ;-)

Ashley- sounds strange I know, but yes :)

I discovered your blog last week after googling (or maybe pinterest searching) for a low carb green smoothie recipe. Since then, I've gone back and read a bunch of your blog and pinned nearly all of your low carb recipes.

I've been yo-yoing with my weight lately, and I've found that a healthy, low carb diet while exercising regularly works best for me so I'm really excited to have discovered new things to add to my repitoire. (I'm still too in love with dairy to make the full jump to Paleo, but I enjoy a lot of paleo recipes.)

Does it have to be almond meal or can I use almond flour? Always looking for a great bread recipe since I have cut out wheat. And with the rosemary growing from our garden, mmmm! Thank you!

Lindsay said...

I adore your recipes Linds! This looks amazing!

My passion lies in cooking...and though I can (secretly) bake, I admittedly do not love to...BUT this bread sounds so amazing (of course!) that I might just have to bust out my hidden baking skills this weekend!) XO Brynn

What's funny is that I pretty much think anything with rosemary in it counts as a necessary food group. Haha. Maybe not everything...but it's seriously one of my favorite herbs. :) Happy Wednesday, Lindsay!

Unknown said...

Is this something I could make in my bread maker? I guess I could give it a whirl and let you know! Always on the hunt for a healthy bread :) Thanks for being so awesome!

Just brought my first loaf of this out of the oven and have already eaten half of it! SO delicious!!

This is seriously really good! And, weird as it sounds, it tasts just as delicious loaded with scrambled eggs as it does topped with raspberry jam. Thank you so, so much for this recipe. I will be making this for years to come I know.

I just made this today and it is surprisingly good! I have no diet restrictions, but wanted to try something new and this was great! Love it! Thank you!!

This bread is FANTASTIC and SO easy to make. Thanks for posting. I will be making several loaves next time. If I wanted to switch it up, is there another herb you would suggest to replace the rosemary?

Lindsay @ Delighted Momma said...

Sorry no idea! I don't count calories.
