Hi Everyone,

 

I am wondering if anyone knows of any low fat gluten free pre-made breads or rolls?

My husband is willing to eat gluten free at home and likes to have bread with most meals. He is on a very low fat diet for health reasons, and I am having a hard time finding low fat gluten free breads or rolls for him. I am looking for breads under 1.5 grams of fat per serving of 2 slices, or per roll. Are there any low fat eaters out there who know of any very low fat bread products? I am surprised to find out that gluten free breads have so much more fat in them then gluten filled breads. I would really love to get those gluten filled bread crumbs out of the house for good though.

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the tip on Anna's Breads mamaw!

It looks like her original mix is fat free, I would just have to find a low fat substitute for oil and use egg beaters when I make it. I hadn't thought about making a mix - I'm not much of a baker as of yet, but could learn. I was kind of hoping for a quick fix, like something pre-made and frozen. It would be worth the extra work to get the gluten filled bread out of my house if I have to make the gluten free bread myself though. I could probably get myself a new bread maker out of this deal too :). Who knows, it could be fun to start baking breads.

Anna's  breads  can be made in a bread  machine  or  a pan.... We & even the kids  love  the  bread.... it  is not  hard  at  all... I  reduce  the  water  by  2-3  TBSP  &  it  doesn't   sink in the top  then.....

Her  banana  bread  & pumpkin bread  are  very good  as well....

If  you buy a bread  machine  make  sure  it has  a  heavy duty  motor... I  have  a  Zo...  & love  it  but  many have  the  breadmaker  one  & like it  too....

When  you make  homemade  bread  I  bake  , slice  & then freeze  putting  a piece  of  wax  paper between each slice  so  we  can take out  1 slice  or  several  & not  waste  the rest..

If  you check  out  the  Living  Without  site  they have  many bread recipes  that are  good... I just  make & eat it  & don't  look  at  carbs,  & such  ....

I'm not  sure  who  would  have  ready made  low  fat  bread.....

I just done  a  bit  of  scouting  around.... Schar bread  is low  fat... I have  ate their  bread...

Julian  Bakery   is  another  but  I never  had that before.....

Thanks Mamaw!

I will look in to both of those pre-made breads for him, but I am really interested in baking my own now. The breads you mentioned sound really yummy and the husband really perked up when I mentioned I might bake him some bread.

Can you tell me more about your maker? I looked up Zo, and the brand Zojirushi came up. Is that the one you have? There are a few models on amazon right now. Do you know what model you have? Sorry for all of the questions, but they seem like a bit of an investment, so just I want to make sure I order the right thing.

Thanks again

Hi  ,  yes  that's  the  best  bread maker  in my  book..... I've  had  mine  for  years  & it is still  working.... many of the  less  expensive  brands  don't  hold up to the  gluten-free   dough  & the motor  burns  out.  So I  figured I'd  buy the Zo  &  not  need to  worry.....you  get  what  you pay for.....There are  at  least  two  newer  models  than  mine ... I like  the one  that  makes  the  regular loaf of  bread......

I love  to bake  & cook  but  for many  they  hate  it..... it is  time  consuming &  one  needs  lots  of  pre-planning  with the  gluten-free  lifestyle to keep  everything  moving  as planned... But the  rewards  are  terrific...

Thanks Mamaw!

I will be purchasing one of these soon. It sound like they are worth it in the long run. I don't hate to bake and cook, but honestly never have much. It could be a nice hobby to take up now that I am over 40 and life is slowing down a bit.
