My name is Emily and I'm a graphic designer and mother of two awesome kids. I'm also a Type 1 diabetic, so a few years back I made a New Year's resolution to cut out sugar and switch to a low-carb diet. I've tried out a million low carb and Ketogenic recipes since then and I've come up with some really good recipes of my own. This blog is about keeping my New Year's resolution year after year.
I’d like to dedicate today’s recipe to all the low carb bread makers out there.
Crazy diamonds who dream of a world where you can eat real bread again. Well, I am happy to report that you can. I’m going to share a recipe for a real rustic Italian yeast bread with a nice soft chewy interior and a lovely thick crust. You might just forget that you are on a low carb diet.
The secret to good bread is gluten.
Low carb flours don’t have it, so that’s why it’s so hard to get a truly satisfying low carb loaf of bread. Almond and coconut flour loaves just don’t have the bounce or the chew that you get with regular bread. To fix this problem, this recipe adds in vital wheat gluten to compensate. Problem solved. So you get a crusty chewy loaf of low carb bread with only 3g net carbs per slice. So shine on you crazy diamonds.
