Substituting bread can be one of the biggest challenges when going carb-free, especially for those who love savory food for breakfast. If you are from Germany, like I am, you are most likely used to eating bread or rolls (“Brötchen”) almost daily for breakfast, and often as well for dinner (“Brotzeit”). I’ve been thinking about how to create a delicious carb-free bread, and a few days ago, I finally gave it a try. Based on my Nutty Crackers, I added some moisture ingredients and carb-free flours, and out came a delicious healthy bread. My husband tried it this morning and he is as impressed as I am. This bread will help us a lot with our carb-free nutrition.
You need the following ingredients:
- 150 g / 2/3 cup Almond Flour
- 45 g / 3/8 cup Flaxseed Meal
- 100 g / ~3.5 oz Sunflower Seeds
- 30 g / ~1 oz Sesame Seeds – here I used the black ones
- 60 g / ~2 oz Pumpkin Seeds
- 30 g / ~1 oz Flax Seeds (golden)
- 4 eggs
- 360 ml / 1.5 cups water
- 1 tbsp Psyllium Husks
- 1 tsp salt
Start by preheating your oven to 170 °C / 340°F. Pour all the ingredients into a bowl and mix it with your hands until you have a dough.
Cover a rectangle bread or cake loaf pan with baking paper. This will prevent the bread from sticking to the pan. Place the dough into the loaf pan and spread it evenly. Then sprinkle some black sesame seeds on top. Place it in the oven and bake for about 70-80 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean, which means no dough is sticking to it. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool down.
Slice the bread into thin slices and serve it with your favorite spread, butter, cheese, salad, or whatever you prefer. This bread is also very delicious when you toast it before serving.
