A bread with absolutely NO CARBS!

Zero Carb Flax Bread

2 cups flax seed
5 egg whites
2 whole eggs
5 tablespoons flax oil, coconut oil, or olive oil
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
3 packets Stevia

Mix all dry ingredients then add the wet. Whisk together and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. This recipe can also be made into muffins: divide batter into muffin pans and bake for about 10-15 minutes.

A sweet chocolate bread can be made by adding Capella Flavor Drops. Some other awesome additions are pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and protein powder flavor of choice. Great topped with almond or peanut butter!

Nutrition info per serving (1 serving/1 slice) 

145 cal, 11 g fat, less than 1 g carbs, 6.5g protein

Yes, heavy on the cals in my opinion (but it’s coming from the flax seed). If you want less than a carb per slice, here’s your answer!

  1. All this nonsense and false health claims. All those bloody eggs. stupid!

    • Eggs are an excellent dietary source, high in protein (one of the highest bioavailability sources there is with all 9 amino acids) as well as 14 essential nutrients.

      If you don’t like the recipe, then don’t bake it. You don’t need to be trolling on here.

  2. How can this bread have no carbs when flax seed itself has carbs?

  3. Does this recipe use whole flax seeds or ground?

    • I would think you would want it to be ground. Our bodies can’t chew the seeds to get the nutritional contents out of them.

    looks like a lovely loaf, but can anyone tell me please, how much is ‘3 packets’ of stevia??? Thanks x

  5. Am I the only one who gets the loaf well cooked on the outside and constantly moist and undone on the inside? any suggestions on how to avoid this and get a properly baked loaf?

    • I had the same issue. I suggest spreading it flat on a cookie sheet (flatbread) or using a muffin tin.

    • If its browning on the outside and is undone on the inside then your oven is too hot. Reduce the heat of the oven and cook it for a longer period of time. If the top is browning too much then cover it with foil. This should work well.

  6. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I will be featuring it in a post about low carb bread tomorrow.

      Hi, I keep looking but can’t find what is considered 1 slice. I mean one person’s 1 slice is another person’s 3 slices. Do you know how many grams or ounces are considered to be in 1 slice? Thanks!
