Super Quick Low Carb Bread Recipe


Would you like a bread you could microwave in about 2 minutes? From start to end, this bread recipe takes maybe 5 minutes total including mixing and cooking time. The recipe is a bit crumbly for sandwiches, but great as a side to a meal.

Best of all, you only need five ingredients, which most low carb households probably already have! Note that cream of tartar is NOT the gooey white stuff you put on fish. It's a white powdery spice. You can find it in any store, in the spice area.

1 1/4 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 oz butter

Melt the butter in a microwave-safe dish, then mix in all other ingredients. Get a new microwave safe bowl and coat it with oil. Then pour in the batter.

Microwave for about 2 minutes - you want the top to become firm. Voila! You're done. We cut ours into eight pieces, and found it quite mild in flavor. Many low carb bread recipes use soy flour, which to me has an off, cardboardy flavor. This tastes good.

The top and the edges (against the bowl) become the "crust" - it's only a little thicker and a little darker in color, but you can control how much crust you have by choosing your shape to have more or less "edge". You can use a large saucer to create a "flat" bread with a lot of crust surface, or a regular soup bowl to have more "insides" that are soft.

To make breadcrumbs, simply crumble into pieces and brown in the oven :)

The only real caveat for this recipe (i.e. the reason we won't make it every day) is that almond flour is not cheap. You can buy it online, but flour is heavy so shipping is a bit expensive. Try your local health food store to see if they carry it.

Carb Counts

Almond flour is about 4g per cup, so the whole "loaf" has about 5g total in it. Butter has zero grams, while eggs have 0.6g each. Baking soda has zero, and the cream of tartar has 0.2g in this amount. Total that up and you get 5.8g per loaf, so only 0.7g per serving!

Now note these aren't "large" servings, they aren't entire slices like you would eat a sandwich with. They're more like the smaller slices of cornbread you'd have along with a meal. Which is just about what this is meant to be :)
