Easy 1 Net Carb Foccocia Style Flax Bread (12 servings)
« on: October 19, 2010, 04:11:32 PM »
Found this on a low carb site and thought I'd try it instead of paying close to $8 for pre-made bread.

Verdict: Smelled wonderful coming out of the oven! Easy and quick to make...now for the taste test...drum roll please....

Oh yummy yummy both plain and piled high with chicken salad!!!!!! I cut my slices in half (when preparing sandwich) to stretch it further to 24 servings.

Foccocia style flax bread

rep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Ingredients:

    * 2 cups flax seed meal
    * 1 Tablespoon baking powder
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1-2 Tablespoons sugar equivalent from artificial sweetener (xylitol)
    * 5 beaten eggs
    * 1/2 cup water
    * 1/3 cup oil (I used olive oil)

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pan a 10X15 pan with sides works best-spray (I used a 13x9 as that's what I had)

1) Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.

2) Add wet to dry, and combine well. Make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter.

3) Let batter set for 1 to 2 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.) I poured it straight in

4) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).

5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.

6) Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want. You don't need a sharp knife; I usually just cut it with a spatula.

Nutritional Information: Each of 12 servings has less than a gram of effective carbohydrate (.7 grams to be exact) plus 5 grams fiber, 6 grams protein, and 185 calories.

**Izze's notes:  After dividing the bread in half then 4-5 sections you can take one slice and cut it in half to put your sandwich items on it instead of using two thicker slices to save carbs.  

I also had to cook it about 25-30 min because it was still mushy and stuck to the spatula on the bottom when I cut the sections -so you can't go by the springiness of the top to tell if it's done. I'd use a toothpick.

SF iced coffee in a reusable cup ;)  This one was Da Vinci SF Pumpkin Pie flavoring.  They have SF fall flavors out but they were sold out on the Netrition site so I ordered them directly from Da Vinci.  The shipping is only $4.95 for up to three bottles.

Gingerbread
Pumpkin Pie
Peppermint Paddy (yes, paddy not patty)

Izzet, what a great recipe!!  I made it in a 9 x 13 pan and cut it in 8 pieces.  I did like you and cut the width in half to use for sandwiches.  I had an open-faced tuna sandwich for lunch yesterday.    This morning I put it in the toaster and used it to dunk in my eggs.  Yum.  Actually, half of it was enough to go with my breakfast and I thought I had a million dollars.  Thanks!

I am just as ecstatic that I found it...I too have been over the moon being able to have sandwiches and toast again and it's healthy. whoo hoo! lol  I'm wondering if it would work in a loaf pan and slice it thin-will try next time.  Also try it with flavoring like banana!  Just check to make sure no carbs.  I found some non-alcoholic/sugar free flavorings on amazon by Spicery Shoppe.  See post and link in product review forum.
Peace and blessings,

I passed this recipe on to my brother-in-law who also is eating the FTS way, but is not on the forum.  He made individual desserts from this recipe by layering two portions with sugar free raspberry jam in between the layers.   He mixed xylitol and cream cheese  and put on top with some fresh raspberries and some shaved SF chocolate. He said that it tasted great and you would never know it was a low carb dessert.
