Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Cooling Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 3 hours
Servings 15


  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 3 large eggs*
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted and cooled, (or ghee, margarine, or oil)
  • 1-1/2 cups golden flaxseed meal (170 g) (Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 cup brown rice protein or pea protein or half of each** (118 g)(NOW Foods)
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder 16 g) (Vitacost)

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons guar gum for corn-free
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon monk fruit extract powder Lakanto: sugar-alcohol-fre(or sugar-free substitute


  1. Add the water, eggs, and cooled melted butter to the bowl of your electric mixer and combine on low speed just until combined. If making in the oven, add these ingredients to its bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flax seed meal, brown rice protein powder, yeast, baking powder, guar gum, salt, and monk fruit extract powder; add to the liquid ingredients.
  3. To bake in the oven, transfer to the prepared pan and set in a warm (80 – 90⁰F) environment for 1-1/2 hours or until it stops rising. (I used the bread proofer linked above. Alternatively, you can preheat your oven to lowest or warm setting and then turn it off. Open the door to cool it down to about 84⁰Oil the top of the bread dough or a sheet of plastic wrap and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise in the oven with the door closed.) Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes. Tent with foil once the crust reaches your desired color. To make in a machine, simply set to gluten free and press start or follow the manufactures instructions. Help stir in the very beginning, scraping down the sides.
  4. Immediately remove from the pan and allow to cool up to 2 hours or until it reaches room temperature.
  5. Slice by hand using a serrated knife. Freeze leftover in a zipper storage bag or air-tight container.


*Egg Substitute: Replace each egg with 2 tablespoons liquid from a can of cannellini beans and 1 tablespoon fat (butter, bacon grease, dairy-free margarine, etc.)

**You can also use half brown rice protein powder and pea protein powder. Combined, the two proteins create a complete protein. A complete protein provides your body with all of the necessary amino acids it needs. This is similar to whey protein but dairy-free.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. I had an allergic reaction to flaxseed bread. I am wondering if there is anything else I can substitute. I can’t do tree nuts, seeds, or gluten, and need to do low carb.

    I’ve found recipes using broccoli and other vegetables, but they are more for a pizza crust, which can still work. But if possible, it would be nice to have something that is more like bread or a roll, once in a while.

    No worries if there isn’t really a low-carb substitute. Thanks!

    1. Melody,

      All of my low-carb gluten free bread recipes contain either seeds or nut flours. Many people intolerant to seeds can tolerate sunflower seeds. Ground sunflower seeds is my only suggestion for a substitution.

      Maybe you can experiment with this cloud bread recipe: I suggest trying to substitute the all-purpose flour blend and milk powder with NOW Foods brown rice protein powder and/or their pea protein protein: Let me know if you try it.

      The best cauliflower pizza crust I’ve ever had: I would make it without any toppings and use as sandwich bread.

      Good luck!
