microwaved flax bread

  • 1 ounce of melted gfcf margarine
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 8 TBSP. Flax meal
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
  • 2 TB butter

Mix together and put in the microwave and nuke for 3 minutes.
This makes a fairly close-textured bread that tastes to like wholemeal bread.

Total fat 48 gms
Carbs 18gms (including 15 gms fibre) - so only 3 net carbs
Protein 20 gms

NOTES:
  • some people said it was eggy so you can use one egg. It comes out a little smaller with less egg taste. Reduce cooking time from 3 minutes to 2 when making it this way.
  • If microwaved cakes/breads aren't to your liking, so bake it in the oven in a disposable mini-loaf pan for about 15 minutes at 375. After cooling slightly on a wire rack, sliced it into 4 slices, lengthwise. This doesn't have the wet-density of the microwave flax bread some have tried before.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
