Spiced Fruit Bread ... Low Carb and ready in 90 seconds !

Karen at KETohh blog says, "this recipe is nut free and made from healthy ingredients such as flax seed/ linseed, psyllium, coconut flour and blueberries. There’s no need to feel guilty about eating these as they are a fantastic source of vitamins, nutrients and are also full of fibre. Cinnamon and mixed spice goes wonderfully with the blueberries to recreate the traditional taste of a fruit and spice bread / loaf / muffin. These taste like you are eating a slice of raison toast but without the carbs. They taste fabulous served straight from the oven warm, slathered with butter. You don’t need to serve them with any toppings as they are full of flavour. You can also toast them and again just top with butter, as the fruit and spices are flavoursome enough. Although this is primarily a microwave recipe it can also be cooked in the oven … see further details on link below.

2 teaspoons coconut flour or 6 teaspoons almond meal/almond flour
2 teaspoons flax seed/linseed ground

Low Carb Flours
The above recipe uses 'low carb flour' and if you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question. Of course you may also be interested, or want to know more about them. If that is the case then Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site has a very good guide, and you can read it here

slowly the leaves are turning colour, Autumn is approaching,
I think this spiced bread recipe has a certain Autumn-ness about it,
perhaps it's the mix of spices used ...
