The low carb ingredients

To make this recipe you’ll need only seven ingredients that are pretty cheap and easy to find.

  • Flaxseed meal – You can grind your own flax. It doesn’t have to be a super fine powder. A roughly Ground flax makes this recipe better. Use a cheap spice or coffee grinder. Flax seeds have a strong nutty flavor and give a nice whole grain taste to the bread.
  • Eggs – Use large eggs at room temperature. Don’t skip this step because it reduces the risk of the bread to taste.
  • Oil – I used avocado oil because I want to this bread to be dairy-free. I also love the taste of the flax bread with light olive oil.
  • Water – This will help activate the flax seeds and will prevent the keto bread from becoming to dry in the baking process.
  • Spices & Salt – This is the part where you can become creative and add any of your favorite spices. I used dried oregano but you can use Italian spice and sprinkle with chili pepper flakes. Yum! That what I’m doing in my next batch.
