Low-carb is my life. I’ve learned if there’s one thing that effects my body, poorly or otherwise, it is the food I put in it. And no matter which way I slice it, my body doesn’t like carbs. It doesn’t matter if they are gluten free, grain free or protein filled. About thirty minutes after I eat carbs my body feels like it has the flu and I need a nap.
Eating low carb bread keeps me sane and happy!
I’ve pinpointed I can only tolerate about 14 grams of carbs per MEAL. So most of the time I eat meat and veggies. But once in a while I want a good slice of bread. And for those who know me really well, know I want the bread just so I have an excuse to eat butter!
I love to bake and grew up with my grandmother and great-grandmother in the kitchen baking up a storm. I’ve been on a mission to convert my great grandma’s (who we affectionately called Two-Mamma, may she RIP) recipe into a low-carb recipe because she made dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls to die for!
Experience has taught me good low-carb bread recipes are hard to come by. Most either don’t rise and taste rubbery or taste more like a pound cake (which is too sweet to use for a sandwich or dinner roll).
After much, MUCH trial and ERROR I think I have finally nailed it. In my research I’ve discovered more dietary fiber lowers the net carb count. For me, the best dietary fiber is wheat. So if you are someone who can not have gluten, I’m sorry. This recipe has lots of gluten.
Let us know how you like this recipe and I hope it helps you tolerate carbs better and still have some of the great foods you love!
