VERY LOW CARB FLAX FOCCACIA STYLE BREAD

After trying this recipe a few times to perfect it...what I mean by that is finding out that all the ingredient should be the same temperature, beat eggs well before adding to the dry ingredients,etc, I now use this quite often on my low carb diet. You can add spices and whatever you like to it( I added cinnamon a few times and it tasted sort of like a breakfast muffin), a few people have said they added a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder and made a brownie out of it...I have yet to try that :o). I really like this because I miss bread on the atkins diet.

Ingredients

2 c
golden flax seed meal
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1 tsp
sea salt
1-2 Tbsp
tablespoons sugar equivalent from artificial sweetener
5 large
eggs well beaten
1/2 c
water
1/3 c
oil(i read that many people used coconut oil with great success but i use canola)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pan (a 10X15 pan with sides works best) with oiled parchment paper or a silicone mat.
2
Mix dry ingredients well with a fork or whisk.
3
Mix wet ingredients well with fork or whisk.
4
Add wet to dry, and combine well(making sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter).
5
Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up a bit(leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.).
6
Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).
7
Bake for about 15- 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.
8
Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want. You don't need a sharp knife; I usually just cut it with a spatula.
9
Each of 12 servings has less than a gram of effective carbohydrate (.7 grams to be exact) plus 5 grams fiber, 6 grams protein, and 185 calories.
