This recipe makes a small loaf of bread that cuts easily into thin slices. Great for sandwiches and toast. I think I miss sandwiches the most on my low-carb diet. Problem solved! I am happy to share this recipe with my JAP low-carb friends. Enjoy!




The photos are my own. The recipe I changed slightly from a recipe by Elana Amsterdam.

1Cook's Tips:
Do not substitute any of the ingredients to achieve the best results. Do not leave out the vinegar or honey as it is needed to activate the soda or your bread won't rise. The recommended pan is a 7.5' X 3.5" Magic Line Loaf Pan, available at Amazon.com for a reasonable price. I bought two of the recommended pans, but they haven't arrived, yet. I used a small pyrex bread pan lined with parchment paper to try the recipe. I greased the pan and put in the parchment paper and greased that, too. Parchment paper helps to get the bread out of the pan. Do not use a regular size bread pan because your bread won't rise. A mini loaf pan is too small, this pan makes a small loaf bigger than a mini pan and smaller than a regular loaf pan.

2In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, arrowroot powder, flax meal, salt and baking soda. Place cracked eggs in a bowl.

4Cook's Tip: About mixing the dough, once you start to incorporate the egg mixture into the flour, you must handle the batter very gently.

5Stir with a scraper spoon down the sides of the bowl and folding the batter over each time with the scraper spoon and ONLY until the flour is moistened--or your bread will be tough.

Mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

6Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes, and test with a toothpick. It took 50 minutes for my bread to get done, so all ovens are different. Let the bread cool in the pan on a rack. When it is cool, slice it and wrap in a paper towel and put it in a ziplock bag.
