Banting Yeasty Bread - with instructional video


The BEST Banting Bread you will ever eat. Yes, I am that confident of it!
Huge thanks to Rita Venter for finding this little gem!

I made an instructional video which you can view below, but to find out the ingredients used - use the recipe posted below it!






Ingredients:

1 cup lukewarm water
1 pkt yeast (10g)
1 tbs Honey (14g)
5 whole eggs
2.5 cups almond flour (250g)
10 tbs psyllium husk (50g)
1.5 tsp salt (6g)





Method:

Preheat oven to 180C.
Prepare a loaf tin (line with baking paper and grease well)
Add Yeast, honey and water to a bowl.
Mix well then set aside for 5 minutes to allow it to ferment.
Beat eggs in a bowl until well aerated (see video above).
Fold in the almond flour, psyllium and salt.
Add the yeast mixture and mix well.
Don't be too worried about it looking a bit runny, the psyllium will thicken the mixture.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Allow to cool before removing from tin, then allow to cool completely before slicing.

Find the nutritional information for the loaf below.

I got 20 slices from it, so that's around 2.2g net carbs per slice, taking all ingredients into account. The honey is eaten by the yeast though, but I still added it for completeness sake.

Per slice, the portions in the Carb Wise App would be:

Fat: 0.56 - Protein: 0.15 - Carbs: 0.07

Monster FatHead Pizza


Not only is the Green Monster Pizza (as my 4 year old has dubbed it), delicious, it also takes on the awesome nutrients from the added spinach. What a great way to get much needed veggies into your kids!!

Ingredients:

2 large spinach leaves
1/2 tbs cream cheese
1 egg
120g sunflower seed flour (or almond!)
200g grated cheese
(Can use mozzarella or cheddar)


Method:

Remove spinach stem, wash thoroughly and place the leaves in a food processor along with the cream cheese and egg.
Allow to process until the spinach is mostly broken down.
In a microwaveable bowl, add the sunflower seed flour and grated cheese, and microwave on high for 1 minute.
Stir well together, then microwave on high for a further 45 seconds, then mix well to incorporate.
Add the spinach mixture to the sunflower seed dough, and mix well.
If the mixture is still too wet, add some more sunflower seed flour.
Roll the dough out between two pieces of baking paper.
Bake on baking paper in 180C preheated oven for approximately 20 mins, or until firm to the touch, and bottom browned.
Add toppings as desired, and bake until cheese is melted.
