Gluten Free + Low Carb + Healthy BREAD... IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE?!....... Yes!!!
So I've had a lot of people asking for a bread recipe... I've tried a few different ones but coming up with a gluten free and low carb bread that actually taste great, is a little out of my league as of now. I'll get there but until then, I found this amazing recipe from Maria's Delicious and Nutritious Journal... She makes an unbelievable, GUILT FREE bread!!! The flavor is incredible! I don't eat bread so to make this and actually be able to eat bread and butter without feeling guilty, it was a feeling like non other!!! Oooooh bread-n-butter how I've missed you!!! I will be making these a lot!!!!!
1-1/4 cup blanched almond flour
5 TBS psyllium husk powder (no other substitution will work) - I use Now brand
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
3 egg whites
1 cup BOILING chicken broth
**Psyllium Husk is a POWERFUL FIBER with lots of health benefits and can be used in place of white flour in many baking goods!! (51 grams fiber per 1 cup)... For more on Psyllium Husk click here
Preheat Oven 350 /Servings 4
~ In a medium size bowl, combine almond flour, psyllium powder, baking powder, and salt.
~ Add in the egg whites and combine until a thick dough.
~ Boil chicken broth
~ Add Boiling broth into the bowl and mix until well combined
~ Divide the dough into 4 balls or shape it into 2 - 1 inch loafs (will rise 2-3x bigger). place on greased baking sheet and bake for 50-55 minutes. (for loafs cook 50-60min)...
(Poke with toothpick to make sure it's cooked fully... if toothpick comes out clean then its done!)
~ Done... Let them COMPLETELY cool and set before cutting into
*Tip: Spray your hands with non-stick spray before handling dough... makes a big difference and not so sticky.
