Ingredients

100 g sesame seeds
100 g flax seeds
100 g pumpkin seeds
100 g sunflower seeds
100 g walnuts
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 eggs, room temperature
10 g cumin seeds (optional)
10 g poppy seeds (optional)
If you have been on the ketogenic or low-carb diet long enough, you are used to not eating bread. But this seed bread has just 1g net carbs per slice and so many health benefits!

Instructions

1.Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F
2.Mix all the seeds and walnuts together. Use your food processor or coffee grinder to grind the mixture. Grind until you get coarse flour (you can keep on grinding, I prefer it coarser).
3.When the seeds and walnuts are ground, add the eggs, baking soda and salt.
4.Use a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Grease it with some olive oil to prevent sticking. Pour your batter and spread it evenly.
5.Pop the pan into the oven and leave it there for about 40 minutes. Start checking the bread after 30 minutes. It might need a few minutes more or less, depending on your oven.
6.When your bread is baked, take it out of the oven, let it rest and cool for at least 30 minutes so you can cut nice and thin slices.

If you are long enough on the ketogenic or low-carb diet, you are probably used to not eating bread. Even so, sometimes we just want a sandwich. And I don’t buy those lettuce “sandwiches,” with all due respect. So, I came up with a recipe for this low-carb seed bread. The best part is – it contains only 1g of net carbs per slice!

I already made (and wrote) about seed crackers, so this time I decided to experiment a bit further. And luckily, it was a successful experiment!

Since you do not need any flour for this bread, just ground seeds (and some nuts), this bread is an excellent source of fiber.

Health benefits of the ingredients used for this seed bread

Of all nuts and seeds, flaxseed is the lowest in net carbs. It contains only 0.4g net carbs per 1 ounce serving (28 g). Also, it has been shown to have beneficial and cancer-protective properties.

One ounce serving (28g) of pumpkin seeds provides 23% of your recommended daily intake of iron and 37% of magnesium.

Sunflower seeds are a perfect source of vitamin E. To be precise, a one-ounce serving (28g) contains nearly half of the recommended daily intake for this vitamin.

A one-ounce serving of sesame seeds provides 27% of your daily calcium needs and 25% of magnesium.

Walnuts contain more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids than any other nut. One serving of walnuts contains only 2g net carbs.

Eggs provide your body with (inexpensive, high-quality) protein and fat which makes them a staple food in the ketogenic and low-carb diets. They are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron, and phosphorus.

The easiest way of making this low-carb bread is by using a food processor. I use Vitamix Explorian Blender, and I recommend it wholeheartedly. I usually first grind nuts and seeds and then add the rest of the ingredients. Another option is a coffee grinder – I use Bosch MKM 6003, and it is fantastic.

If you dislike any of the seeds or simply want to replace it or omit it – do it. Just adjust the amount of the other ingredients. Walnuts can be replaced with pecans. Other options you can use are hempseed, chia seed…
