I know, I know… I am the microwave queen when it comes to low carb but no one else in my family eats this way and I just don’t have time to spend a couple of hours making something for just me. So, the majority of recipes you are going to find here are those that can be made quickly and easily… and for one person.
Bread. I love bread so much. I’ve been making homemade bread since I was 14 and I am about to be 55 so you do the math. It is relaxing and my family loves it. I get to sit there and smile while they eat it and I get to smell it because… carbs. If a carb was a cartoon character it would look like Snidley Whiplash from the 1960s cartoons.
But I digress.
A lot of times when I cave to carbs it is for a simple sandwich. I could live on them. Yes, I am a food writer. Yes, I have written cookbooks and been invited to amazing restaurants. Yes, I can taste that creamy white asparagus soup once and totally copy it right down to the truffle shavings, but a sandwich?
Cajun turkey with lettuce, pickles, grainy mustard, and mayo is my favorite but I am not fussy at all. Fresh, sunripe tomatoes on toast with mayo, BLTs, peanut butter and jelly, Pickles and mayo… the list goes on. I literally used to eat Spagettio sandwiches when I was a little kid.
I love sandwiches.
This low-carb sandwich bread works. Make it in the widest mug you have and then let it cool a little before you slice it. I was able to slice it into 4 rounds which made 2 sandwiches — very filling sandwiches. The bread soaked up just enough of the mustard, mayo, and pickle juice to make it perfect.
And it didn’t get soggy.
There’s only one thing better than a sandwich. It’s a perfect piece of toast and, my dear friends, this low-carb sandwich bread makes toast.
I was so excited I checked Amazon for the one thing that would make my life truly complete now that I could eat sandwiches and toast — Low-carb orange marmalade. Like Paddington I have an addiction to marmalade and I have had exactly two tablespoons in the past four years. Two.

I love the bread,it’s so tasty & easy. The only issue i have is that it’s too salty, if i reduce the salt do I also reduce the baking powder?
No it should be fine.
Do you have to put flax meal in
Good texture but way to salty.
Well, salty is largely opinion. 🙂 It’s always good to use less and adjust up if needed.
My husband is allergic to almonds so doubled the coconut flour and it’s delicious!!!
Great! That’s awesome to know!
Isn’t it necessary to wait several minutes after mixing for the coconut flour to soak up any liquids? I always read that this is necessary with coconut flour, but maybe because it’s such a small amount, it doesn’t matter?
In this I don’t think it matters but you can if you like. You may need a little extra liquid.
