Low(er) Carb Bread

by Codewiz51 24. June 2012 08:56

This is a low(er) carb, high flavor bread.  This bread smells wonderful while it is baking.  Don't eat it all!  I limit myself to one slice per day, except Fridays, when I make a sandwich with it.

  • Combine all ingredients except Silk Almond milk
  • If desired, add slivered almonds, blueberries or other treats, depending on the ladder rung you are on.
  • I like to make a savory pancake by adding sauteed mushrooms, onions, garlic, chilis, sausage or chorizo.
  • If the batter is too thick (it will be), add 1 Tbsp pf Silk, incorporate and continue until batter is has the desired consistency
  • Cook on a griddle or frying pan lightly coated with oil over low heat.  (I use a setting of three out of ten on my stove top.)
  • Check and turn over at about 5 - 7 minutes.
