A good bread replacement when doing a low carb diet. All of the carbohydrate in the flax meal is fiber. Plus flax is super good for you! Great as a sandwich, with jelly, or with some edamame hummus. This is adapted from a recipe found on

I've made some modification to the original recipe. Replaced salt with ground cinnamon and artificial sweetener to natural stevia! Enjoy!

1/3 cup of melted unsalted butter
1/2 cup of filtered water
1 tablespoon of stevia (zero calorie natural sweetener)
1 table spoon of baking powder (Aluminum-free)
5 eggs beaten brown organic cage-free Omega-3
2 cups of fresh ground flax seed
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Yum! Great for a healthy bread. I was a bit dubious when I put it into the oven as the dough didn't look like dough, just quite stodgy. I was pleasantly surprised, smells great, tastes great, nice and nutty, great with butter! My only criticism was that it is a little too salty for my taste, I would use half - 3/4 of the salt used in this recipe.

This is very good. I'm on the 17 day diet, which is pretty much low carb. I can't wait to have a tuna sandwich with this. Next time I think I'll add a little garlic powder and maybe onion powder and no sweetner. Thanks for a great recipe.

Wanted to add - I just toasted a piece of this and added a tiny bit of butter - yum, yum.
