Question. Is flaxseed bread, bread made out of all flaxseeds or is it other grain bread with flaxseed added? This was never specified on the program list... Any comments?

Diana, I can't see how flaxseed bread could have just flaxseeds.  It has to have another grain.

Raquel, where can I find Lola's great recipe?

correction, it is not MY recipe!
http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/breads/r/flaxbasicfoc.htm?p=1

I ve simply tweaked it to my needs, adding other grains, and less egg......sorry, have no quantities, I simply add all the ingredients into my processor and check for the right cake or bread consistency, adding the wet and the dry ingredients as I go.

I ve so far done millet, amaranth, flax

or rye, whole grain brown rice for my daughter.....
I also add nuts into the mix.

you can even make a brownie adding cacao, and glycerine, or whatever....everything goes!

Chloe, Lola answered your question.   If you grind them in to flour, you can make bread.  That's the one other members have posted.  I'll try it.
Thanks for the link Lola

Looks awesome!   I wasn't thinking about flax flour...AHA!!

WOW....did you read the raves for this bread?  My problem is I can't eat eggs and there's
5 eggs in the recipe...but that would be for many servings, so.....I'm going to make it anyway...just because the reviewers all gave it 5 stars.  Who could believe such simple ingredients would taste as good as these people say.  Certainly is perfect for people
who are craving bread and want to stay away from lots of grains.

Can you picture this bread warm with some ghee on top?

My flax bread is in the oven right now baking.  I didn't waste any time after reading that great
recipe.  Only used flax seeds..ground them myself...a little agave and used a bit less water
than the recipe called for.  Sprinkled lots of herbs on top..I used one less egg because mine
were extra large.  And a big splash of olive oil..I read that when you grind your own flax
seeds, they tend to be more oily, so I used less additional oil.

I've read you can use cooked beans in this recipe...I guess they've got to be mashed.

Will share results later...Ten more minutes of baking to go...


UPDATE:

Delicious....quite amazing.  There are 5 grams of fiber in one portion (1/12th of whole).  Remember
to drink water afterwards to deal with the extra fiber.  I felt full with one piece.

A blender or coffee grinder work well for grinding flax.

When I make the flax bread, I only use 4 eggs, decrease the oil by half and instead of 2 cups of flax, use 1c flax and 1c brown rice flour. It makes it more "breadlike". I've also been using the golden flax, with very good results.

I tried that........didn't work........so got out the coffee grinder. Now that works in a snap. That's what I'd used before, but saw the f/c and wondered.

I use my Bullet for grinding anything if I don't feel like getting the vitamix dirty. It's a great little machine. Makes pretty good smoothies right in the mug.

ohhhhh, that sounds yummy - would you mind posting quantities. Reminds me of the recipe Diana added some time ago. Cinnamon toast pancakes. http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?1010

one can never have too many pancake recipes.

I'd love to have a no-egg recipe.  I can make muffins and biscuits and cakes, but when it comes to actual bread....

Have you ever used one of your egg-free muffin recipes and tried baking it in a loaf pan?
Would it be solid enough to slice? Or too crumbly?

I used Agave syrup.  I used a bit less liquid.  I also have molasses crystals which would have
worked well. I don't use artificial sweeteners.

I make the flaxseed foccassia bread every week (from the lowcarb link). This week I tried it with 1/2 measure flaxseed meal and 1/2 measure freshly ground millet flour. 1T sesame seeds and 1/2t dried herbs. It's really, really delicious! Try it, for those who can have sesame seeds and millet.

They're too crumbly.  It's more like cake.  The more surface area there is against a pan, the better the bread, when you're baking gluten-free.  So muffins are better than big things like breads.

I've been using this recipe - cutting it down to 1 egg to make two hamburger buns - I make it fresh when ever I need it.

My favorite addition is pressed garlic - yum!  I too use agave for sweetening.

I haven't tried using other grains as my Dad has celiac.  Maybe I will try some rice flour tonight to go with our split pea soup.


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.

Wait, wait.  I thought not too long ago you said (or somebody said) peanuts were the food of the gods.  I think chocolate is.  Actually in heaven we'll be eating milk and honey, according to the Bible.  I guess by then my body will be healed enough to drink milk.  lol
