Flax Focaccia Flatbread - very good!

I found this recipe the other day, and have baked it today & just had a piece. It's really nice!

Google: wildwoodnaturals (uk blog) Paleo Pagan: Fun Flax Focaccia

The only thing is that the author has included no nutrition details, and I wondered if someone used to lowcarb cooking might have a rough idea of how many carbs there might be in it (I cut it into 12 pieces)?

(Note - I used coconut flour, liquid egg whites instead of whole eggs, sweetener instead of honey, and omitted the herbs.)

Flax Focaccia Bread
Ingredients
1⅓ cup flax meal
⅔ cup almond or coconut meal (if you use coconut, add water)
1 tblspn baking powder
½ to 1 tspn sea salt
1-2 tblspn honey or raw sugar
½ cup shredded cheese (mozarella and parmesan work well)
italian herbs of your preference, about a tblspn total (I typically use garlic, oregano, and rosemary)
5 beaten eggs
¼ - ½ cup water
⅓ cup olive oil

Reserve for sprinkling on top:
1-2 tblspns shredded parmesan
1 tblspn rosemary

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Prepare 10"x15" pan with oiled parchment, or directly oil pan (you can also split this into two smaller pans).
  3. Mix dry ingredients well in large mixing bowl.
  4. Mix wet ingredients, beginning with the smallest amount of water.
  5. Add wet to dry and combine well.
  6. Let batter set for 2-3 minutes so it will thicken. The more water you use, the longer it will need to set.
  7. Spread into pan, making it thinner in the middle and avoiding spreading completely into the sides.
  8. Bake about 20 mins until it springs back when you touch top, or a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool and cut.
(Everything else as per above, re nutrition details and my adjustments.)

That's OK - it's very nice, the tastiest flatbread I've tried so far. (I'm just going to guess at the carb content - it's probably much like any other flax-based flatbread.)

This bread is great toasted - I've just tried it fried, like good old English 'fried bread'. I had it for brunch, with two fried eggs, two rashers of bacon - all cooked in coconut oil & finished with a sprinkling of Worcestershire Sauce. It was delicious! And wonderfully filling - I won't need anything now until about 6pm.

This sounds really good. For myself I will probably sub in Splenda or Xylitol for sugar. Can't wait to try it!

Hi! I'm Jessica, from WildWood Naturals, and am so glad you enjoyed the flax bread! We enjoy it several times a year. And I'm from Texas, so its a U.S. blog.

Happy Autumn everyone!

Sorry Jessica, why did I think it was a UK blog? I love it, it's the nicest one I've made so far! I can spread it, toast it, fry it - all sorts, so very adaptable. (I'm not a great herb lover, hence me leaving them out.) Hope you don't mind my tweaks!

Jessica, do you know roughly how many carbs it has per slice?

I make something just like this weekly. I don't add any shredded cheese, but I may start doing that. Otherwise, the measurements are the same (I use 1/2 c water and I use liquid sucralose). I also use a combination of 'flours' to equal 2 cups - almond flour, flax meal and ground chia. I really like it, especially with the minimal ingredients. I just toss everything in my Vitamix on the lowest setting till mixed well then dump it on a pan with a silicone liner, spread it out and bake.

One of the things I'm loving about LC recipes is the way you can fiddle about with them - once you have all your flours, oils etc. all lined up in front of you, you can play around until you get something that suits you absolutely 100%. This recipe is SO easy to adjust - I haven't tried it without cheese, but I'm sure it's just as tasty.

I've tried this recipe two ways now - the original gives a nice 'bready' bread, but you can make a thinner one if you use fewer eggs - great for a pizza base!
