Flax Bread, revisited

Microwave breads are a very common item on ketogenic diets. The most common ones, made with almond flour, are slightly expensive and higher in carbs, so I like to make mine with flax. However, flax has a somewhat… peculiar flavor. So I mixed it with sesame and got a wonderful result: when had on its own it still has a strong flavor, but it is perfect for sandwiches or toast. And of course you can add some garlic powder and herbs to make it extra aromatic.

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp flax seeds, whole (30 g)
  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds, whole (30 g)
  • 1/3 tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • Process
    1. First, powder the seeds in a blender. Then, mix them with the salt, baking powder and psyllium husk.
    2. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, oil, 1 tbsp water and vinegar. Then add the seed mixture to it. You can use an extra 1-2 tbsp water if you need. It should have a thick consistency, like clay.
    3. Put the dough in a greased microwave-safe mold (or in 3 individual molds) and microwave for about 3 minutes or until it is completely set.
    4. Wait for it to cool down before cutting into it.
