Just because you are living a heathy low carb and/or keto lifestyle it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fluffy, bread like addition to your diet. Served warm out of the oven, sliced cold or toasted, no matter how you choose to enjoy it, my Everything Bagel Low-Carb Keto Bread will be a staple in your keto/Low-carb kitchen.
I especially love it toasted, slathered in butter and dipped in golden runny egg yolk.
My mouth is watering.
I will admit, that I do have regrets to creating this recipe. Not that it’s not amazing but perhaps it’s a little too amazing.
So amazing that it’s very easy to over eat…..
Like I seriously just ate 1/4 of the loaf with a stick of butter – this is NOT a joke.
But with just 2 net carbs per slice (or in this case 8 net carbs for 1/4 of the loaf 😛 )you can indulge without the guilt!
I already know that many of you will complain that this recipe contains unique ingredients, which you don’t already have in your party and you may not find at your corner grocery store.
Unfortunately, I didn’t create this recipe with convenience in mind, I created it to be nutrient dense! Packed with fiber, prebiotics and resistant starch, all of which are compliments your low carb and/or keto diet.
Tigernut Flour – A tigernut isn’t a nut, as the name might imply. It is a small root vegetable that grows in Northern Africa and the Mediterranean. Tigernut flour is naturally gluten free and Paleo. And it offers those allergic to nuts an option for adding protein when baking and cooking, making this recipe healthier for more people!
High in fiber, iron, potassium, protein, magnesium, zinc and vitamins E and C, tiger nuts were the primary food of our ancient ancestors who lived in East Africa between 2.4 million and 1.4 million years ago, according to a 2014 Oxford University study. One ounce of these crunchy root vegetables contains 40 percent of the recommended daily fiber intake.
Tigernuts contain natural sugar, healthy fats and have a high level of resistant starch, which reaches the colon intact. Resistant starch promotes prebiotic growth and supports a healthy immune and digestive track. It can also lower blood glucose levels and improves insulin sensitivity.
Psylium Husk Powder – Psyllium husk is an edible soluble fiber and prebiotic. It’s often referred to as a bulking fiber because once it is ingested, it expands, forming a gel-like mass by drawing water in from the colon. It then promotes easy, healthy elimination by sweeping waste out of the colon more quickly and efficiently. In addition, psyllium husk is known to have positive effects on heart health and cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that psyllium is safe, well-tolerated and improves glycemic control for people with diabetes.
Macadamia Nut Butter –While theoretically other nut butters would work in this recipe, I encourage you to seek out macadamia nut butter for it’s fat content and flavor.
