A woman at our local support group told us about a low-carb "bread" that she makes in the microwave. I tried it and thought it was okay and started to experiment a little. This morning, I hit a really great recipe. My 15 yo DD, who is not gluten-free said it was good and asked for more. It reminded me of whole wheat bread - soft, yet grainy in a good way. I'm planning to make some more of these for sandwich buns.

Here's the recipe:

1 large egg

2 Tbs. brown rice flour

1 Tbs. almond meal

1 Tbs. golden flax meal

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. cocoa powder

shake of salt

Spray a custard dish (or any baking dish that will yield a hamburger bun sized "loaf") with non stick spray. Crack egg into dish and stir with a fork until it's well mixed. Add all other ingredients and stir well. Cook in microwave on high for 90 seconds. You'll have to loosen around the edges with a butter knife, but mine came out pretty easily.

I'm using some self-control to wait until lunch time to make another one and create a delicious turkey sandwich. (insert drool icon)

wow this sounds like it would be fabulous for those "there's nothing in this house to eat" moments! I might just have to try it today :)

I just tried this, and it works pretty well!

I didn't have a microwaveable baking dish the right size, but a cereal bowl worked just fine. Since my sliced turkey was round anyway, it matched up nicely. :)

Question...do you think it would work for a "single" hamburger bun???

It's just about the right size for a hamburger bun. I actually like to slice it into 3 slices and make a sandwich from the top and bottom. I eat the center part later with butter or jam. I'm not used to having a lot of bread anymore and it seems like too much.

I've also noticed that sometimes it turns out too dry. If I only bake it for 1:25 I like it better.

Thanks, I thought it would be so fast for a bun when my dd comes to visit or something she can "bake/cook" by herself ;) (20 and hates the kitchen) And she likes those ingredients too :)

Do you think there's a good substitute for the rice flour? I can't do rice either, but I can do sorghum. Boy would I love to try this treat! It's been years since I've had any bread of any kind. [/drool]

I was just thinking about trying it with sorghum flour! I think it would be lower in carbs and have a lower glycemic index that way...? Unfortunately I just ran out of sorghum flour, but if you manage to get it to work, please post your results!

I had to make one...WOW it works! I used the sorghum and a cereal bowl about 6" wide. Makes 1 large bun w/o the third slice...just cut it in 1/2. The inside looks amazing. Nuked it 1.25. Great if you need a "to-go" bun. Now I need to make a burger to go with it. :lol:

FAST FOOD at home ;)

Results: DROOL b/c my hamburger on a bun is delish B)

Thanks Liz!

Mmm, sorghum flour sounds great! I like it, but don't buy it because it's so much more expensive than rice flour here. I'll have to get some anyway to try it.

I'm glad that you're having success with this easy recipe too! I mixed up a ziploc bag full of the ingredients and now just measure 1/4 Cup with an egg when I need a "bun".

The original recipe is low carb and actually pretty good if you like really nutty whole grain type stuff. It is 1 Egg, 2 Tbs. Almond Meal, 2 Tbs. Flax Meal, 1/2 tsp baking powder and a shake of salt. Make it the same way. It's heavier, but still tastes good. I eat one for breakfast when I want something filling and low carb. Lots of fiber too!

It's good to know about the variations. I think I'll try it without the cocoa and replace some of the flax with rice flour. I like the whole-grain flavor for a sandwich, but I kind of prefer a "white bread" flavor with a hamburger. Maybe replacing the flax with potato flour and/or potato starch would yield something more like a potato bread??

Darn. I wish I had an unlimited capacity to eat. I'd try it tonight!! The cool thing about it is that I can experiment on one serving at a time. I don't have to waste, for example, an entire package of expensive almond meal for something that may or may not work!

That is a great thing about such a small recipe. I keep thinking that I'm going to try adding herbs or tweaking it a bit more, but I don't want to eat too much of it.

I was a little skepticle about trying this. But I gave in and went to the grocery store and bought the brown rice flour and golden flax meal. I could not find almond meal so I just went to the baking isle and got two small packages of unsalted almonds and put them in the food processer and bingo I had almond meal. It probably works out to be cheeper in the long run. I made it an WOW! I was really suprised by how well it tasted. I have tried various gluten free breads and have not liked any so I don't eat bread at all. I then decided I wanted it to look more like a slice of bread so I tripled the recipe and put it in a small rectangular baking dish I had and microwaved it. All I have to do is cut it in four squares and then slice it in half and I have slices of bread. My husband even commented on how it tasted pretty good, but I don't think he is going to make a habit of eating it though. It was really fun watching it bake in the microwave. Pretty neat to bake bread that way. :P I wonder how it would turn out using an egg replacer? I shared this recipe with a coworker of mine who is also gluten free but I found out she can't have eggs, well at least not much.

PLZ, if you try the egg replacer would you post your results! Thanks! I like the idea for those that take their own bun to a restaurant...this would be so easy. I was skeptical too, so I waited until someone tried it first. The loaf sounds good for making fast grilled sandwiches. How long did you microwave your triple recipe?

I think I am going to borrow some egg replacer from another friend of mine to try it. I don't have a problem with eggs, so I don't want to buy a whole box of it. I microwaved it for 4 1/2 minutes, so just triple the original cooking time. I liked it so much I have eaten three sandwiches today. My hips will thank me later. :lol:

Yummy! I just had to try this! I too was suprised that it worked. I totally loved the texture. It kindof reminded my of this homemade bread that my mom would make when I was a kid. I can't wait to make it for my son. He really hasn't had a bread that he likes since going gluten free. This one might just be it!

Thanks for experimenting!! :D

Thanks, I walked an extra mile on hills behind my house b/c of that hamburger :lol:

I hate eggy taste too but I never noticed it in this bread recipe. I tried it twice with a hamburger and all the condiments...not as just bread. I am not sure but maybe you could try 2 egg whites or 1 egg white and some water. Or 1 egg white and a spoonful of applesauce. At least as someone else said...you only have to make 1 at a time to experiment on ;)

A bread that you can make in the microwave? That's for me! Indeed this recipe sounds like it would be great with some herbs added. Nice recipe for me to try one day.

    • Yes I eliminated high glycemic foods. Eating only small amounts of carbs. No fruits, added sugars, starchy grains. Eating lots of fibrous veggies. Eating olive oil, as I don’t seem to tolerate the saturated fats or MCT oil. Allergic to nuts and seeds unfortunately.
    • Just wondering if you have an update at all? Going through the same thing at the the moment with my type 1 14 yr old. I would be interested to know what your gi said and how your daughters doing now? xx
    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!
