Spiced Fruit Bread : Low Carb : Microwave or Oven Cook

Once again, I'm sharing this recipe from Karen at KETohh blog she 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.

Serves One
2 teaspoons coconut flour or 6 teaspoons almond meal/almond flour
2 teaspoons flax seed/linseed ground
1 teaspoon psyllium husks (not powdered)
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon mixed spice
½-1 teaspoon stevia erythritol blend optional or to taste
¼ teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon EVOO - extra virgin olive oil
1 egg
A pinch of salt

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, and you can read more here

perhaps not the best of pictures
but it was nice to see these flowering crocus

Using different flours is going to be a challenge remembering how they behave. I'll start with one at a time.

This looks tasty.

And I didn't realize it, but blogger was putting some of your comments in my spam folder. Today I noticed the count for that folder wasn't zero, and when I looked, there were a few from you from a week or two ago. I published them. I don't know why blogger did that!

Jan, this sounds delicious. I wouldn't even need to add the stevia. The berries would provide enough sweetness to suit me.
