Gluten Free Flax Bread

Gluten Free Flax Bread

If you are looking for delicious grain free bread that is high in fiber and big on taste, search no more. I love this bread because you can change it up so easily by varying the spices, the sweetness and the ingredients. You can add raisins or cranberries to sweeten it up or add earthy spices like rosemary and garlic to transform it into a dinner bread. Oh…you can also add nuts to add some crunch. Bon Appétit!

2 cups Flax Seed meal

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. nutmeg

1 tsp. sea salt

1 Tbsp. baking powder

2 Tbsp. Xylitol (or more if you want a sweet bread)

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Add the following to the dry mixture after beating for 1 minute:

½ cup water

5 organic eggs

1/3 cup coconut oil

Pour batter into a well-oiled glass bread pan and bake for 20-25 minutes

at 350 F. Make sure the center is springy to the touch when done.

  • I am vegetarian and don’t eat eggs. What could I use instead of the eggs to make it lighter?

    • You can chia seeds or potato starch…but it might be a little heavy…you will have to experiment. Let me know how it turns out.

    • Xylitol can be purchased at whole foods or a natural market. It looks like sugar but is made from the fibrous part of plants and trees. It has a very los glycemic index of around 5 compared to sugar at 100. It does not stimulate insulin production wither. Great stuff!

    • Thank you for this information. Reading that article certainly makes one wonder about the use of Xylitol. Thanks for sharing. I will do further research.
