Low Carb Yeast Bread
This is an adaption from Diedre's Kitchen recipe on youtube.com. I changed it up a bit to suit our taste. The first try was a fail. The second try was so scrummy! It slices nicely and makes delicious toast or sandwiches. It's so nice to have "bread" back in our life again!
1 C. Water, luke warm
2 Eggs, slightly beaten
2/3 C. Ground flax meal
1/2 C. Oat Fiber
1 1/4 C Vital Wheat Gluten
2 Tbsp. Softened butter
4 Tbsp. powdered SF sweetener, Monkfruit is my favorite
2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Xanthum Gum
1 tsp. Honey (raw)
1 scant Tbsp. Instant Yeast
3 Tbsp Hemp Hearts, optional
1.5 Tbsp nutritional yeast, optional
1 egg white for egg wash, optional unless using the everything bagel sprinkles
Everything Bagel Sprinkles , optional
Prepare your baking pan w/ non stick spray. I used a 5" x 9" x 3" glass pan. The first time I used a longer metal pan and it did not work for me. Set your pan aside while you mix your bread.
Add the luke warm water to the mixing bowl. If your water is hot your yeast will die. Add your honey and yeast and give it a stir. Add the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl. Turn on your mixer with the dough hook and let knead for 7 minutes. You may need to help it come together with a spatula. I did this while the mixer was running. When ready, add the dough to your bread pan. Just shape it into a loaf and set it the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the microwave or cold oven to rise.
Let rise 1 hr . Do not put it in a warm oven. I did this and it rose too much and imploded in the oven.
When risen heat your oven to 375.
For the egg wash just use the white of an egg with a little water & beat it a little. Brush the top of the dough with egg wash & sprinkle with everything bagel sprinkles.
Bake @ 375 for 25 minutes. It's that simple!
Slice and use for sandwiches...
Or form into dinner rolls before baking.
