Low carb AND low calorie baking flour? Simple recipes for bread?

Dear friends, I am totally new to this site and have not figured out how to use it yet. In fact, I am surely posting this in the wrong place! Anyway, I have spent hours on here trying to find a recommendation for a low carb baking product that I can use as the base for my bread and hamburger buns recipes I have found on here. I want it to taste the most like bread (not flax, coconut, flour, chia etc.) I have not tried the unflavored whey protein yet, because it seems to high in calories. Any help, anyone?

If you can't find exactly what you are looking for maybe start a thread.

A lot of people seem to like this specific recipe as a base:
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...d.php?t=797228

can't comment because I haven't tried any of the recipes in that thread yet. But maybe you'll find a version of the fantastic flour that fits for you or maybe a little experimenting with the basic recipe.

There is also this thread:

Good luck finding/developing the perfect recipe!

I have moved to a moderate carb, low calorie diet and Carqbuik is actually perfect for both. It has around 270 calories/6 net carbs per cup, versus all purpose flour at around 440 calories per cup and who knows how many carbs.
Look into sugar free pancake mixes like New Hope Mills and Big Train, both are surprisingly good in bread recipes because they contain gluten and additional leavening agents

I use Einkorn whole wheat flour which is also lower in calories and carbs than regular wheat flour, and I tend to mix it with Carbquik and oat fiber to make really good low calorie and low carb baked goods.

Also, you might want to look into various flour mixes here on the site, like Kevin Pa's, Ouizoid's and Jenna Marie's. I know that for the most part they don't contain calorie information (only carbs), But they all use similar ingredients are a definitely low in calories, so you can run the ingredients through a recipe builder and figure it all out.

Jenna Marie's bread flour is 274 calories/32 carbs per cup and her cake flour is 323 calories/19 net carbs per cup.

Once I hit goal, I do plan to go back to using Jenna Marie's flour mixture as my main flour, and Carbquik as my secondary flour. I stay away from almond flour all together as it is way too high in calories.

I'm sorry I don't have any bread recipes to offer you as I've just started buying grocery store light/low calorie buns and breads instead of baking them, but these flours really are good in other recipes that call for flour, such as pancakes, cakes, cookies and donuts.

thanks everyone! I still cannot figure out how to use this site. In fact, I accidentally found all your replies, and do not even know how I got here! So not user friendly:-(

Ann1, it just takes some time to get used to how the site is set up.

The links at the top of the page are a guide. If you click on the 1st one "Low Carb Friends", you will see Sections. Each section's title is encased in a blue boarder that goes from left to right, i.e. Forums, Eating & Exercise Plans, Support Groups, Recipes and Menues (sub-title link within that is Low Carb Recipe Help Suggestions, which is where you are now).


Each section has links with titles. It takes a little time to familiarize yourself with these. If I'm looking for a recipe, I come right to this link under the Recipes and Menues section.

Then, in this section (and others I believe) there are what they call Sticky threads (you'll see that word in the beginning of the section. A sticky thread stays near the top of the section, normally popular threads, so they can be found easily. They don't move down in the section - hence, a sticky thread - it stays near the top.
