Psyllium Pepita Sandwich Bread - Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

A low carb bread, adapted from here and here, that looks and tastes like the real sandwich bread! You will not believe this is gluten/dairy/grain free bread and it has a crispy crust with a soft, tender crumb. The miracle in this low carb bread recipe lies in the use of psyllium powder, and there's no substitute for it. Spread some homemade onion marmalade over and enjoy! Store the rest in your fridge or freezer.

  • 280 g Pepita, finely ground
  • 60g Flaxseed, ground
  • 20 g Chia seeds
  • 100 g Psyllium powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 230 g Egg whites
  • 85 g White balsamic vinegar
  • 400 ml Boiling water
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line an 8x4-inch loaf pan. Place ground pepita, flaxseed, chia, psyllium powder, baking powder and sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk everything until well combined.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together egg whites and white balsamic vinegar. Add into the dry mixture and mix at high speed with a hand-held mixer until just combined, about 15 seconds. Gradually add in hot water and mix quickly at medium-high until just incorporated, about 20 seconds. Do not over mix the ingredients or the dough will become gummy.
  3. Shape the mixture into a loaf and place into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 80 minutes. Cool the bread in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and enjoy it with some homemade onion marmalade. | © 2017 | | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Hi Angie, always amaze with your unique recipes. Pity a lot of the special ingredients is not available in our country thus no chance to try.
Nice looking bread, so soft and fluffy. Love your beautiful presentation.

Have a nice day, regards.

A healthy recipe that uses tones of those frozen egg whites that I have in my freezer! Love it! :)

Looking at this amazing healthy loaf makes me feel quite guilty about the banana bread I have just put into the oven.
Have a beautiful day Angie.

mjskit 17/8/17 05:38

Bet the ground pepitas add a really unique flavor to this bread. I love adding them to bread, but I usually keep them whole. Love the idea of grinding them. Fig preserves on this bread would be awesome!

Sounds delicious! Love the green colour when you slice into the loaf :D
