Following a low carb diet means avoiding carb-enriched foods. That doesn’t mean, though, that you have to stop indulging in delicious bread. The trick is to find recipes that use low carb flour. You’ll have the same great taste and texture, without worrying about your carb intake. Let’s take a look at one of the best low carb bread recipes out there!
If you’re looking for the perfect way to complete a meal, then look no further than this low carb breadstick recipe.
- 2 tbsp Honeyville Organic Coconut Flour, sifted
- 3/4 cup Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour
- 3/4 cup Ground Golden Flax Seed
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
- 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
- 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- 3 large Eggs
- 1/4 cup Buttermilk
- 3 tbsp Olive Oil
For the topping:
- 2 tbsp Butter, melted
- 2 tbsp finely grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1 tbsp finely chopped Fresh Parsley, optional
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or use non-stick spray, to ensure that the bread doesn’t stick to the pan.
In a mixing bowl combine the following ingredients: Coconut Flour, Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour, Ground Golden Flax Seed, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese.
In a separate bowl combine olive oil, eggs, and buttermilk.
Finally, mix the wet and dry ingredients together until well blended. Be sure to let the dough sit for a few minutes, as this will allow it to firm up before the next step.
Place the dough in the center of some parchment paper and then cover the top of the dough with an additional sheet of the paper. Roll out dough into an oblong shape. Cut into one-inch strips using a lightly greased pizza cutter, as this will create the perfect breadstick-like shape.
Space the breadsticks about 1-2 inches apart on your prepared tin, and bake for 15-18 minutes until the edges are golden brown. This recipe yields about 12 breadsticks.
What Makes This Recipe Low Carb?
You’ll notice that coconut flour and almond flour are the flours of choice here. The reasoning is that both of these types of flour have fewer carbs than traditional white flour. But the taste and texture are so on point that you won’t be able to tell the difference. Happy eating!
