Flax Bread II

Fluffy low carb flax bread that is good for sandwiches and for toasting in the oven.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  2. Prepare pan (10x15" with sides works best) with oil or non-stick spray (no carb).
  3. Mix dry ingredients well with a wisk or fork.
  4. Add wet to dry, and mix well. Make sure eggs are blended well leaving no obvious egg white strings.
  5. Let batter set for 2-3 minutes to thicken up a little. Don't leave too long because it may make harder to spread.
  6. Pour batter into pan. Spread evenly across pan.
  7. Bake for about 20-30 minutes till it springs back when touched or is visibly browning even more than the flax already is. According to your preference.
  8. Cool and cut into preferred slices . I make mine thin by slicing pieces in half.

Sounds like a winner! However, since I haven't made this yet, I'll give it a 4 star rating. All the great reviews, are making me want to make this, as I can envision the many possibilities for this bread. :-)

i added garlic, and Italian herbs, but it still needed more than the tablespoon of each. very filling--i use 1 slice and cut it in half to make a small sandwich. i did, however, find that coconut oil is wayyyy better than olive oil- on a lot of levels.

You can also cut down this recipe to 1/4 c flax meal, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1 packet splenda, a little cinnamon, 1 egg and 1 tsp butter stir, put in a microwavable coffee cup and nuke for 1 minute. Delish! and so easy!

Light and fluffy. I used Stevia instead of Splenda, and poured the batter into a muffin pan like kziemianski. On it's own, it would need more seasoning, but slathered in butter it was amazing. The texture is perfect.
This bread is great..I used it to make french toast this morning and it came out excellent..Definately a good replacement for bread

Very good....feels like I'm cheating! I like sweet bread, so I like the Splenda in it. I also added cinnamon. My daughter loves it!

I made this last night for breakfast today, took one bite and said "This is way better than what I've been eating every morning!" Which previously had been a MIM. It's much lighter. I should add that I baked it into muffins (made 12) and ate two warmed up and topped with peanut butter. One would also make a great snack!
These came out a lot better than I thought. I am so glad that the texture was light and fluffy. I blended the egg mixture very well before adding in to the dry mix. I do however think it could use a little more seasoning. In the future Im gong to play with this for either sweet or savory applications. Maybe cinnamon or garlic powder. Overall it was a great base to add onto. With the leftovers I'm going to make a coffee chocolate "bread" pudding (low carb of course)

I have to maintain here. I bake it a little longer and it is fantastic. I think I am addicted to this bread.
