Microwave low carb, high protein bread
I love, love, love this bread recipe. I love that I can whip it up fresh everyday at lunch time - or anytime really - and get a fresh loaf everytime. I love that it fills me up for longer than bread made with flour and I don't get a sudden drop in my sugar levels causing me to eat more carbs. I love that it holds it shape and doesn't crumble or fall to bits. I love that I can make it up in the morning and it's not soggy by lunchtime.
In a bowl mix
40g LSA (Linseed, sunflower seed and almond mix)
30g almond meal
2g baking powder
20g cream (I used thick cream so I mixed it with 20g water to get 40g total)
Oil a microwaveable dish in the shape/size of the bread that you would like it to be. Spread it out evenly.
Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2min
Wait a few minutes for it to cool, then slice in half horizontally to get 2 slices.
Today I made up a chicken, mayo, lettuce and spout sandwich to take with me for lunch today.
I just made this with 40grams of full cream milk instead of half cream/half milk and it turned out just fine. I also replaced the almond meal with oat bran and it made no difference to the loaf.
