Bread is a staple in many diets, but it can be difficult to find a bread that is both low in carbs and tastes good. Carbquik offers a carb-friendly alternative to regular flour in low carb bread recipes.

Carbquik is a low-carbohydrate baking mix that can be used to make a variety of different baked goods. However, it contains wheat and gluten so it’s not the best choice for a keto diet.

  • Guar gum and xanthan gum help stabilize the dough and make it thicker.
  • Baking powder is used to give a better rise.
  • Heavy whipping cream adds moisture, fat, and flavor.
  • Eggs supplement the gluten in the baking mix and helps bind the dough together.
  • Extra virgin olive oil enhances the texture, flavor and moisture of the bread.

Tips

  • Place the covered dough in an oven with the light on. Putting it just under the light in the oven gives it a warm environment to rise.
  • Pre-soak the psyllium. If you don’t like the texture of psyllium husks, then first pre-soak psyllium husks or psyllium powder in the yeast water in the first step. It will form a gel. Then process the bread dough in a food processor to combine the remaining ingredients.
  • Use a serrated knife to slice bread, for best results.
