Default Craving for yeast bread

Is there a low carb recipe for yeast bread? The ones I have found on the web use things like coconut flour, which isn't low carb. Even if it doesn't rise, if it smells like yeast while baking and tastes a little like yeast when eating, that would be great.

Gizmo, what makes you think that coconut flour is not low carb? If I can eat it, without a spike, trust me, it IS! It's not carb-free, but it does not bother my BG. Most recipews use it in smaller volumes than wheat flour, too.

(Meanwhile I have not seen yeast-leavened recipes with it, either. Most of those use gluten flour).

According to netrition, coconut flour has 10 carbs per 2 tablespoons, that's 80 carbs per cup. And I believe a cup of wheat flour has 96 carbs, so it seems high to me. I see that you are type 1. I don't know much about type 1, but I am type 2, not on insulin, and I believe those on insulin can eat more carbs, depending on how much insulin they take.

I am thinking about doing some experimenting with Carbquik and trying to make up a recipe of my own. I guess it's worth a try.

I buy Bob's Red Mill brand and its label says:

Serving size 2 TBS
Total carb 8g
Fiber 5g
Sugars 1g

And as an example, the entire batch of brownies I made, yesterday contained only 2 TBS!

I understand a bread would contain more, but as long as you don't eat the whole batch, you should be okay. Also you could substitute flaxmeal or gluten flour if you are not GF, for half the CO Flour ...

Great discussion because I have a box (4 bags) of Bob's coconut flour I ignorantly ordered from Amazon when I got my almond and hazelnut flours, then because of the carbs was afraid to use it. It has been sitting on the pantry shelf.

Brownies w/ coconut flour? Recipe?

I was not that thrilled with the texture -- they fell apart! But it was from one of the paleo boards:

http://http://www.healthyindulgences...ed-gluten.html

I subbed 1/4 eryth + 1 TBS of vanilla splenda syrup. They were definitely sweet enough, and tasty -- but even chilled, they just fell apart. LOL, spoon brownies!

Oh great foxl, thanks. Will make these maybe this very day.

I make another peanut butter thingie that crumbles and is very dry, I think it's jwags peanut butter bars, and it's my way of adding more berries (personal crack) into my diet. I don't fight the crumble, add berries and cream, and voila! Delicious. Changes the carb count just a tad though

We used to make Gabi's low carb bread way back when we were doing Atkins. It doesn't always rise, and is pretty dense, but it sure does cure that fresh baked bread craving... just don't eat the whole loaf like we did...

Low Carb Luxury: Recipe - Gabi's World-Famous Bread

I believe there was a revision at some point, but you can google to see.

Not sure if this would work for you or not, but thought I'd share! I used to buy the take and bake bread from the grocery store and eat half the loaf with butter... I love freshly baked yeasty bread.

I think the trick with low carb bread is the fiber. Laura Dolson has several bread options as does Lindas Low Carb. I find Flaxseed is a good alternative. I bought some muffin top pans from Amazon and can make roll type creations. Also gluten free sites are good places to look for recipes. When I use Coconut flour I use a small amount mixed with some other kind of low carb flour like almond meal. I rarely see a spike and often see a bg decrease.
