A bread made from egg, almond flour, flax (flour), quickly made in the microwave.
From time to time I need to have a “bread” that is not really a bread, if you know what I mean. I’ve been doing the keto diet for the past month or so and finally got to the point I “needed” some bread.
Thankfully this is not a new scenario for me and I was able to go and dig into my hCG recipes for this, very simple, quick and easy bread that is made in the microwave in just 70 seconds.
I have a friend that needs this right now too, so I’m sharing it here for her future reference, as well as my own.
You need just a few ingredients. If you make anything gluten-free from scratch, you probably already have some of these items.
Combine all ingredients in a mini food processor, magic bullet, blender, or mix in the actual baking container with either a immersion blender or your own arm power and a whisk. Tiffany chooses the later but I go ahead and get out the mini processor.
Pop it into the microwave for 70 seconds. (I go through spells where I don’t use the microwave for long spells and then want it again for a few things. I have not figured out how to make this without using the microwave, although I figure it’s got to work in the oven; I just don’t know how long it would need to cook.)
When cut in half horizontally, this makes two rather thick pieces of “bread”; so I cut it into three slices. Then I love to make a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich with two of the slices and a piece of toast with the last.
I like to toast it.
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1 Tablespoon flax meal
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 Tablespoon water
- Combine all ingredients well. (I use a mini food processor)
- Pour into mug or other suitable microwavable container
- Microwave for 70 seconds.
- Remove from microwave and from baking container.
- Slice in 2-3 pieces and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this. We sure have.
Until next time, God bless,
