Omega-Rich, Grain-Free Flaxseed Bread Recipe

Feel free to explore. I like to sprinkle mine with sesame seeds! Sometimes I add 2 tablespoons of maca powder for an extra nutrient boost. If you're not too carb conscious, add some chopped raisins or currants, too.

  • 2 cups golden ground flax
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut palm sugar or erythritol
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp psyllium husks 
  • 5 egg whites + 2 yolks
  • 5 Tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm filtered water

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix all dry ingredients  in a bowl, apart from the cream of tartar.

Melt your coconut oil in  a pan on medium heat, put aside.

Separate the egg whites into a mixing bowl, along with the cream of tartar and whisk till fluffy peaks form.

Add two egg yolks, water, melted coconut oil and egg whites to the dry mixture and mix well.

Scoop into a non-stick medium loaf bread pan 7.5″ x 3.5″

Bake on 350 F for 60 minutes (ovens vary, so keep an eye on it).

If you're making this recipe in a bread machine:

Add the liquids first.

Whisk your egg whites for a better rise.

Use the quick setting with light or medium crust, 2-pound loaf setting.
