Nearly Perfect Sandwich Bread – Low Carb, Gluten Free

Sandwich Bread Sliced

Introduction

As you’ve seen my previous recipes with cheesy, herb bread and banana bread, we like bread. But we don’t like the high carbs and high glycemic index of most breads. Yet we love sandwiches.

So, here is a nearly perfect sandwich bread! Very low carb, ketogenic (fires up your metabolism), gluten free, and dairy free!

And finally a balance between savory and sweet that both my wife and kids enjoy.

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a mixer, a little parchment paper, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 14 slices (give or take depending on how thick you slice) of sandwich bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.Then mix the dry ingredients plus the eggs in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Warm the coconut oil for a minute in the microwave until melted. Then mix in the oils.I like to mix a minute or two at high speed to let the eggs rise as much as they can to lighten the mixture. Pour into a bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 45 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 15 minutes to cool before slicing!

With this sandwich bread, prepare yourself for a much more fulfilling, satisfying, and guilt-free sandwich experience!

Shockingly Delicious Low Carb, Gluten Free, Banana Bread

Shockingly Delicious Low Carb, Gluten Free, Banana Bread

Introduction

In my house, we are trying to eliminate bread. You’ve seen my cheesy, savory, herb bread. But, my kids prefer something a little sweeter.

Not to disappoint, here is a very healthy, reduced carb, gluten free, banana bread!

My kids love it just plain, with a little butter, or made into a whole sandwich with meat and cheese, or whatever you normally put on a sandwich. Because there is no added sugar, the only sugar and the vast majority of the carbs come from the bananas themselves. So, for better fiber, prebiotic, and lower carb, go with a greener banana. I like to use two on the greener side and one on the riper side.

This is definitely not a dairy-free recipe, so those who are vegan or have a dairy allergy, you’ll need to use all almond flour and add a 1/3 cup coconut oil in place of the butter. I have tested it that way and it is delicious, too!

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a mixer, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 20 slices of banana bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.Then mix the dry ingredients plus the eggs in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Warm the coconut oil and butter for a minute or two in the microwave until melted. Then mix in the oil and butter. Pour into a bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 10 minutes to cool before slicing!

NOTE: The greener the banana, the lower the sugar count. I use 2 on the green side and one ripe, so my banana bread is actually lower carb than this generic sugar/carb count on bananas.

Cheesy, Savory, Herb Bread – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free

Introduction

Like many of you, my gorgeous wife Amy prefers savory over sweet. You’ve seen my Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Better Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten-Free. and keto chocolate donuts. And now savory, cheesy, herb bread!

This is amazingly creamy, flavorful, and satisfying bread. We use it for making sandwiches or just eating plain. It is ultra-low carb, making it good for people on a keto diet, Type 1 diabetics, Type 2 diabetics, and those who just want a healthier lifestyle. Further, these are gluten-free and use coconut flour and MCT oil, making for a quickening of one’s metabolism, according to the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Center.

This is definitely not a dairy-free recipe, so those who are vegan or have a dairy allergy, you’ll need to use fake cheese instead of the cheddar I use. Although I haven’t tested that combo to see how it turns out.

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a food processor, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 20 slices of bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Use the shredding blade in your food processor to shred the cheese. Then remove that blade and use the dual semi-sharp mixing blade. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Turn on the processor for a minute or two to fully blend the ingredients. Take a bread pan and line it with parchment paper. Then dole the dough into the bread pan, spreading it evenly. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 10 minutes to cool before slicing!

Low Carb, Gluten Free, Nearly Paleo Bread

Low Carb, Gluten Free, Nearly Paleo Bread

Low Carb, Gluten Free, Nearly Paleo Bread

Whether you are a body-builder, a diabetic, have celiac or Crohn’s disease, there are many reasons that eating regular store bought or homemade bread might not be your thing. We have family in more than one of those categories and have been greatly disappointed with the products we can buy online or in the store. So, I decided it was high time I make a low carb, gluten free, nearly paleo bread.

I began by scouring the Internet for body builder and diabetic sites for ideas. I found a couple for inspiration (Bulletproof Bread and Soul Bread), and as I always do, came up with my own version.

This is definitely low carb (in the 1 to 1.5g carb per slice range), gluten free, and I am not into paleo but think this almost meets the paleo diet as well.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. First whip the egg whites until firm. Then melt the butter (I do it in a microwave safe ceramic dish). Follow by pouring the remaining ingredients in the mixing bowl with the egg whites and blend thoroughly. Pour into bread pan of your choice, I use a standard bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 45 minutes or brown to your liking. Let stand for 5 minutes and slice away!

Ingredients:

This recipe only took me about 10 minutes to prep and about the same 10 minutes for clean up in the kitchen.

Applesauce Cinnamon Sour Cream Bread

ApplesauceCinnamonSourCreamBread

Those who follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter might have seen pictures of my baked goods. It is time for me to start sharing my recipes.

I love apples, applesauce, cinnamon, and bread. So this is a favorite when it is raining out (or sunshine). On all of my recipes I use organic ingredients when available and organic, free-range eggs when available.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

One 5″x9″ bread pan, I line with parchment paper but you could butter or spray

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softer than room temp (I usually stick in the oven for two minutes while it pre-heats)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 & 3/4 cups flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon cinnamon (to your taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

In a bowl combine all dry ingredients

Using a standing mixer on low, combine the wet ingredients until well mixed. Then slowly (I do it in five parts) add in the dry ingredients until well mixed. Pour mixture into bread pan and bake for ~50 minutes. Remove from oven.

I love the parchment paper for easy removal from the bread pan and then cool until you can touch before cutting with a bread knife. Or just dig in with your hands and enjoy!
