If you're one of those people who don't consider themselves to be a whiz in the kitchen, but still appreciate good healthy food, then this three ingredient bread recipe is for you. Of course this loaf is a metabolically efficient recipe, so no blood sugar spikes. And surprisingly delicious!
The three key ingredients are cauliflower, almond flour and psyllium husk powder. Psyllium husk is a soluble fiber source, which means it is able to pass through your body without being broken down or absorbed. It’s great for balancing blood sugar levels, and a source of fiber that replaces the gluten-containing wheat found in regular bread.
Almond flour is rich in nutrients containing protein, vitamins, monounsaturated fats, minerals, fiber and a high magnesium content.
The psyllium husk powder and almond flour are combined with baking soda and salt, and then the cauliflower rice and eggs are added. This mixture is prepared then scooped into a loaf tin with a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds on top.
The cauliflower makes this bread nice and moist. Cut a few slices and make a hearty sandwich or just slice and eat.
Prep time is 10 minutes, cooking time is about 50 minutes.
