LCHF Minute Bread

How can you live without bread?  It's a question that every single low-carber has heard over and over again.  That's where the famous minute bread comes in.  It allows you to give in to your body's bread craving, without suffering the aftermath of the stall (or worse, the gain!).  It's a recipe that has been around for quite some time, so I can't take credit for it.  I'm not honestly sure where it originated or how, but it's quite a well-known recipe.  I'm posting it here for those who have not heard of it.  This recipe calls for coconut flour, but you could replace that with almond flour, ground flax seed, or even ground Chia seeds if that's your preference.  Just be sure to adjust your nutritional information accordingly if you change up the ingredients.   ;)

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  1. Spray a microwaveable container or ramekin with nonstick spray (I used these square containers).
  2. In a small microwaveable bowl, heat butter in microwave until melted.
  3. To melted butter, add egg, coconut flour, and baking powder; whisk together.
  4. Spread your batter evenly into your sprayed container or ramekin.
  5. Microwave for about 90 seconds, or until done (will no longer be soft in center).
  6. Flip onto a paper towel to cool.
  7. Carefully slice in half horizontally, making 2 thin slices of "bread."

Yields: 1 serving
