Low Carb Bread Recipe (Almond flour/Coconut flour)

I may have finally found the perfect low carb bread recipe. Crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. A balance of the 3 macronutrients – just enough fat that I can still put my peanut butter on it. Thanks to “All Day I Dream About Food”. Check out her awesome blog!

I buy egg whites in bulk because it’s easier. Also, I find my psyllium husk powder at my local natural foods store. Trader Joe’s also sells a bulk container of psyllium husk that you can grind yourself. I have also found a low carb pizza crust recipe that uses this powder and the crust turns out crunchy and raises well.

Low Carb Bread Recipe

Servings: 10-12

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 5 T psyllium husk powder (grind if it is psyllium husk seeds)
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups egg whites (from 8-10 large eggs)
  • 3 T melted butter or coconut oil
  • 2 T apple cider vinegar, raw
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup hot water

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. If making a loaf, grease the loaf pan with butter or coconut oil. If making rolls, grease a cookie sheet with butter or coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add the egg whites, melted oil and apple cider vinegar and mix until well combined.
  4. While this is mixing, heat 3/4 cup water over the stove or in the microwave. Add the water, 1/4 cup at a time, until the dough expands to 1.5-2 times its original size. Be careful not to add the water too quickly or you will get a sloppy mess. You may not need all the water.
  5. If making a loaf: Add the dough to the loaf pan and form into a bread shape. Place in the oven and cook for 60-75 minutes. It is done when the crust is hard on the outside and a knife or toothpick comes out clean.
  6. If making rolls: Form the dough into 10-12 rolls on the cookie sheet. Place in the oven and cook for 50-70 minutes, depending on the size of your rolls.
  7. Enjoy!

Possible variations:

  • Cinnamon/Cinnamon Raisin Bread: Sprinkle a stevia, butter/coconut oil and cinnamon mixture on top of the rolls or loaf before baking. You can also add raisins for a cinnamon raisin bread.
  • Pizza dough: Spread across a greased baking pan for a pizza crust. Add Italian seasoning to the dough.
  • Cinnamon Rolls: Spread the dough out onto a baking pan and cut into 12 equal pieces. Sprinkle the top layer of the dough with a cinnamon and stevia mixture. Roll the dough into cinnamon rolls. Bake as directed above. Before done baking, make a cream cheese frosting. Add 2 T. cream cheese and 2 T. heavy cream to a bowl and mix well. Add 1 tsp. of stevia and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla. Mix well and pour over rolls when done.
