Transcript:Focaccia-Style Flax Bread

Hi, Cliff Wildman with About.com Food. If you're on a low carb diet, bread can be your arch-enemy, but there are some substitutes for bread out there and today I'm going to show you how to make foccacia-style flax bread. It's very high in fiber, very healthy, and goes great with a low carb diet.

Low Carb Flax Bread Ingredients

For this recipe we'll need:
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of artificial sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 5 eggs beaten together well
  • 2 cups of flax seed meal - you can find this at most grocery stores in the baking aisle
First preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the Low Carb Bread Ingredients

In a large bowl, pour the flax seed meal, the artificial sweetener, the salt, and the baking powder and mix well.

Now we'll add oil, the water and the eggs and mix those together well. Let this set for two to three minutes to thicken.

Form the Low Carb Flax Bread

Here I have silicon mat on a baking tray. You can use oiled parchment paper. And now we'll pour the batter into the pan, once you have it all there, you can spread this out on your pan to whatever thickness you desire, but it should be at least a 1/2 inch think.

Bake the Low Carb Bread

We'll put this into the oven at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes. And you can pull it out and you just want to push on the bread and if it bounces back a bit it is done. Finally let this cool for about twenty minutes, and then take a spatula or knife and cut the bread as you like.

That's the recipe. This is a delicious, nutritious bread substitute. It's great for a low carb diet. Thanks for watching, and for more videos visit About.com.
