Low Carb Flax Sandwich Bread - Microwave

"I miss bread most of all when I am low-carbing. This does the trick! I have made egg sandwiches, turkey sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. Pepperoni sandwiches with mustard. Or just toast and butter it to eat with breakfast. Each slice is 1.3 NET grams of carbs and is full of fiber. Try it you'll like it!"

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe!! I miss my bread and this is exactly what I needed. This bread was so quick and easy to make that it was my husband who decided he was going to be the first to try out this recipe. In three minutes flat the bread was done and we were once again enjoying a chicken salad sandwich. This bread's coarse texture and flavor reminds me of rye bread. Simply delicious!
  2. In need for something quick, I was craving something to dip in my eggs. I was pleasantly surprised with this flat bread. In the style of focaccia it is very versatile and tastes quite nice toasted. The reason why I'm giving if 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the microwave cooking and color. It was not very appealing to look at once it was microwaved but toasted the appearance is more traditional. Now only if someone can convert the recipe for the oven then I would give it 5 stars. Thank you for posting this recipe I will definitely make again!


I grew up in Tucson but moved to Colorado in 1989 and live in a household with my husband, Dad, daughter and 3-year old twin granddaughters. Our 8-year old grandson spends 2 nights a week with us. All of that adds up to often difficult menu ideas to met everyone's tastes. Zaar is very addicting and I love trying the recipes I find here. I like to find recipes of people that I see are still active on Zaar and love it when I hear back from the Chef after I review the recipe. Everytime someone reviews one of my recipes, I like to find one of theirs to make and review as quickly as possible. It's a way for me to find great chefs I don't know yet too! My husband has high blood sugar so we try to watch our carbs, but it is not easy because we love them so much! I was diagnosed with brain tumors in 2005 and so far have had 5 surgeries that have left my eyelid droopy. I hope to have a surgery that will correct that soon!! There is still one tumor they have not removed but my wonderful doctor James Garrity at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN says they will leave it alone until or if it ever causes problems!
