NO DEPRIVATION hot out of the oven, smothered in butter and KETO fresh blackberry jam. The psyllium and flax help with constipation too.

WOW a bread that can be used to make French Toast or sandwiches! After making many KETO bread recipes, this one actually rises and slices nicely.  Saturday bake day for a week supply of yummy bread!  KETO FLAX BREAD  16 slices

DRY INGREDIENTS Bowl #1

1 tabl psyllium husk flour

1 tbsp coconut flour

3/4 cup almond flour

1 tbsp Whey Protein

2 tsp baking POWDER

¼ tsp Stevia

¼ tsp cream of tartar

2 tsp xanthan gum

1 tbls Flax seeds20180414_104236

WET INGREDIENTS small Bowl #2

¾ cup warm water (2 tsp yeast + 2 tsp honey) Add yeast and maple syrup (to feed the yeast) to medium bowl. Water to feel lightly warm to touch. Pour water over yeast mixture, cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 7 minutes. The mixture should be bubbly, (cold water won’t activate the yeast and too hot will kill it).

WET INGREDIENTS large Bowl #3

Once your yeast is proofed, add mixture into Bowl #3 with the eggs. Add cooled melted butter and vinegar. Mix with an electric mixer for a couple minutes until light and frothy. Add half the dry mixture Bowl#1, add sour cream, mix thoroughly  to activate the xanthan gum, add the 2nd half of dry Bowl #1. Dough will become thick as the flours absorb the moisture.

¼  cup soft butter

¼ cup coconut oil

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

4 tablespoons sour cream

2 tsps honey or maple syrup

IMPORTANT TO SIFT 1/2 DRY INGREDIENTS INTO WET BOWL, then sour cream, then SIFT the other 1/2 od BOWL #1 dry ingredients into wet bowl #3.

Baking at 5,000 FEET altitude ensures a certain amount of the fluff to flatten after cooling.  Less altitude means more volume. The yeast in keto bread ensures a wonderful texture and taste.  Ingredients should be at room temperature, heavy cream, eggs, butter. Cold eggs will result in a flatter bread. Proof the yeast. Mix dry active yeast with water that’s just warm to touch with honey or sugar – mix for 7 minutes until foamy. Sugar ??  Yes, because yeast will feed on sugar to emit carbon dioxide, so it doesn’t affect the carb count at all. And yes, this is a scientific fact.

1) BOWL #1 DRY : psyllium flour + coconut flour + bake soda + Stevia (all dry stuff)
