Welcome back to FattoSkinny.com! Today, we’re turning your kitchen into a bakery with our wholesome Golden Flax Seed Bread. This recipe will fill your home with the comforting smell of freshly baked bread, and what’s more, it’s low in carbs and high in nutrients!
This homemade bread is not only delicious, but it’s also packed with fiber and healthy fats from golden flaxseed meal.

- 2 cups lukewarm water
- 1/3 cup red star active dry yeast
- 5 cups golden flaxseed meal flour, sifted not packed
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- ¼ cup vital wheat gluten
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup Xylitol
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- Start by greasing a large loaf pan. Set it aside for later.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine lukewarm water and yeast. Allow the yeast to bloom for about 6 minutes. The mixture should become frothy, signalling the yeast is alive and active.
- Next, switch to a dough hook attachment. Add the sifted flaxseed meal flour, vital wheat gluten, baking powder, salt, and Xylitol to the yeast mixture. Mix on low speed until the ingredients come together to form a dough.
- Incorporate the lightly beaten eggs into your dough. Continue to mix gently for 2 minutes.
- Carefully roll your dough into a loaf shape and transfer it into your prepared pan. Smooth it out to fit the pan. Let the dough rise for 30 minutes. During this time, you can preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Bake the loaf in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. The bread should turn a golden brown and sound hollow when you tap the bottom.
- Once done, turn off the oven but leave your bread inside. Crack open the oven door and let the bread sit for 15 minutes. This will help it finish cooking without becoming too dry or losing its shape.
- Finally, allow the bread to cool completely before slicing and serving. This will ensure it holds its shape and texture.
Voila! You’ve baked your own low-carb Golden Flax Seed Bread! This bread is excellent for sandwiches, toasting, or simply enjoyed with a smear of butter.
Tip: Remember, fresh homemade bread has no preservatives, so it’s best consumed within a few days. You can also slice and freeze it for longer storage. Just pop a frozen slice in the toaster when you’re ready to enjoy!
