bread machine low carb recipe
« on: 02 September 2013, 12:39:10 PM »
I've been experimenting with my bread machine and want to share this recipe with you. I have adapted it from a few that I found on the internet. This is the closest I have come to "real" bread. The only difference I can tell is its slight chewiness. Apart from that its lovely.

1tsp dried yeast
1tsp sugar
1tsp salt
1tsp baking powder
1tsp xanthan/guar gum
50g linseed/flax meal
50g ground almonds
75g coconut flour
200g vital wheat gluten
3 tbsp olive oil
320 ml luke warm water

Place water, sugar and oil in the bread machine pan. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl (excluding yeast). Put mix in bread machine pan. make a well in centre and put yeast in. Bake on wholemeal programme (about 4 hours).

I know different machines have different methods, so adjust to your model if you need too.

You can mix up the almonds, coconut and flax amounts if you wish. Coconut flour is higher in carbs so you could adjust to a different ratio. Even soy flour could be used. The important ingredient is the vital wheat gluten, thats what makes it like real bread. Xanthan/guar gum is a bread improver, but can be omitted if you wish.

I worked it out for the above recipe to be around 50 carbs for the whole loaf, but if coconut is reduced or omitted then so will the carbs. I will try a loaf without it and let you know if its as nice.

Apparently the sugar is food for the yeast and gets used up in the process.

Bake on rabid programme (about 2 hours).
Could that not lead to foaming at the mouth?

The loaf looks lovely Penny.  Could you tell us the complete carb count and an indication of the number of slices it makes? I'm sure people would find that helpful.

LOL classic typo.

I did say the estimated carb count, its 50, slices depends, but I reckon about 10.

Thank you for posting this recipe.  I've looked for quite a while for something like this.  I don't live in the UK so we have no way to enjoy something like the Burgen bread you all seem to enjoy.  I look forward to trying this recipe.

Can I just update the recipe, please use a long wholemeal programme on your bread machine, I had a problem with the rapid one and found its much better with more time for the yeast to work. If any admin could change it just in case someone only reads the recipe. thanks

Oh and just to clarify, this recipe is amazing. I also changed the coconut flour to 50g and used more of one of the other flours, such as soy or ground almonds.

If anyone wonders where to get vital wheat gluten, I get mine here http://www.honest-to-goodness.org.uk/index.php/vital-wheat-gluten-3kg.html I found it the cheapest place. I also last bought the 3kg to last a while.
