This is another recipe that I had to try myself. I found a recipe using flaxseed meal and water to make bread. What you say? I am not sure if this was created for the keto diet? or ?
For this recipe, you will need quite a lot of flaxseed meal. You can grind it yourself or you can buy it pre-ground.
To the flaxseed meal, add baking powder.
Then the water.
Mix until combined. It will look gluey, but that is ok.
Pour the mixture into your baking vessel and smooth out the top. The recipe doesn’t rise a lot and it wont reshape itself while baking. So it is best to smooth it out the way you want it to look.
Bake until it is cooked through. You could probably test this with a toothpick. I ended up doubling my recipe as I wanted a tall loaf, however it took more than two hours to bake this.
Even after the two hours it wasn’t cooked all the way, so I sliced it and baked it again. The bread almost turned into crackers. The next time I made this, I actually added a little more water and spread it out in a thing sheet to make crackers.
The bread had a hearty flavor, almost like a rye bread. It didn’t taste bad and I could see it almost having a bread like texture. However, if you like the sandwich bread texture, the soft and bouncy kind, you might not like this bread. But it is different and low carb and full of fiber and omega.
