Flax meal loaf. Tastes fantastic and packed full of great nutrients, a low carb star.

Nutritional Information: If you cut this loaf into 12 thick slices each slice has less than 1 gram of effective carbohydrate, 5 grams fibre, 6 grams protein, and 185 calories.
 Flax meal loaf. Weight of cooked loaf 742 grams.
2 cups of ground flax seeds (280 grams)
5  eggs
Half a cup of water
One third of a cup of liquid butter
One table spoon of baking powder
One tea spoon of salt
Added mixed dried herbs
Place the eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk. Add the butter and water. Place the flax in another bowl and add baking powder, salt and herbs and mix.… Add the wet mix to the dry mix and mix thoroughly. Place the mix into a non stick bread tin and bake at gas mark 7 for 55 minutes, electric fan oven 200c for 55 minutes. All ovens are different, so you will have to experiment a bit. Add some walnuts and sun dried toms into the mix and you have meal in itself. Just add that lovely butter. The beauty of this bread is that it is easy to make, and requires no cooking skills or special equipment.

The flax seed I use is pretty dark brown - how do you get this golder colour? Can you get low carb golden flax?

I use Linwoods - Milled Organic Flaxseed which is 1.7g of carb per 100g weight.

Hi Dillinger

I buy 500 gram packs of golden flax seed from Waitrose for £1.99 unground. Get a coffee grinder to grind the seeds. A much cheaper way to buy flax and it stays fresh for longer, as you only grind the seeds when required. They do not have to be stored in a fridge when unground.
