ONE MINUTE BREAD, THE NEXT MINUTE TOAST
This is a handy and quick recipe in the morning for those who don’t have time to bake my 2 g carb bread (see wholegrain bread) or perhaps for those steering clear of regular grains for the moment. My habit in the past has almost always been to use regular, ordinary ingredients in my recipes, but I make an exception here and, besides, lately I’ve been ordering almost all my more “exotic” low-carb supplies very conveniently from Netrition. Their customer service is reliable and speedy! I highly recommend this particular online store associated with lowcarfriends.

Note: This recipe is very forgiving and invites one to try all sorts of combinations and computations. I’m sure this could be a fun recipe to “play” with as there are bound to be some different combinations that would suit individual tastes better. The three ingredients in one tablespoon amounts can be exchanged for other ingredients such as oat flour, whole wheat pastry flour, oat bran, more ground almonds (2 tbsp) vs, say, a flour such as oat flour (1 tbsp), etc. The flax seed meal is optional in most cases. I have not tried any of these other ideas, but I’m sure one could come up with alternative recipes, albeit perhaps a little higher in carbs. Feel free to try my recipes and also come up with other one minute bread recipes along these lines and I’ll provide the nutritional analysis, if you request it. This type of “bread” with eggs, bacon and cheese on top, for instance, will be a meal that will satiate the appetite for up to 6 hours or more. This is what I have discovered – therefore, it can be very dieting.

Recipe #1 One Minute Bread, the Next Minute Toast(My favorite)
1 tsp coconut oil (to boost the metabolism)
1 tsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp Resistant Wheat Starch 75 (means it is 75% fiber)
1 tbsp Wheat Protein Isolate 5000 (high protein)
1 tbsp Ground Almonds
1 tsp flax seed meal (golden would be milder-tasting)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp water
1 large egg

Method: In standard cereal bowl, place coconut oil. Nuke 15 seconds. To coconut oil in cereal bowl, add ingredients in the following sequence – mayonnaise, Wheat Resistant Starch 75, Wheat Protein isolate 5000, Ground Almonds, flax seed meal, baking powder, water and egg. Using a metal whisk, whisk ingredients together until well combined.

Nuke uncovered 1 minute 30 seconds, or until set. The cooking time may vary for different microwave ovens. Loosen edges and underneath with a regular dinner knife and invert. Allow to cool slightly and using a sharp bread knife, slice in half horizontally. Toast in a bread toaster (setting should be higher than for regular bread) until browned. Butter crisp toast generously and place breakfast items on top. Enjoy!
