Default Low carb flatbread

Flatbread Low-Carb, So Simple! -- gluten-free, sugar-free recipes with 5 ingredients or less

I made this bread the other day and it had a great texture, but I would really prefer a more savory tasting bread. Anyone have any suggestions for a savory substitute for the almond flour?

I can't help there with another flour, but I use garlic powder, basil and or other herbs and never sweeten the oopsies when I want savory taste. Thanks for the site, I've missed it before.

Just out of curiosity, what was your blood sugar after eating this bread?

I only tried two so far Shanny (and gave the rest to my family lol), and I didn't test my pp bsl as I have problems with my pp breakfast levels regardless of what I eat (think it might be liver dump- still figuring out the solution). Sorry to be of no help there But if I make these again, I will post my bsl results...However I will probably substitute the flour since I wasn't keen on the almond.

Be very careful what you substitute for the almond flour. Other nut flours are more carby than almond, and of course any grain flours would be a very poor choice.

Hmmm...even so for lupin flour? I've heard that some diabetics can tolerate it (but of course depends on the individual).

Lupin Flour has 43g carbs per 100g so more than twice that of Almond Flour.

Like Pat I use garlic powder and a variety of other herbs at times which disguises the distinct almond flavour.

I used Italian Herbs and some Hot Ground Chilli in the loaf I baked yesterday and it was great with dinner last night.

Um...Can someone correct me here if I'm wrong...but I added up the carbs of all the ingredients for this recipe...and the total for all of it is a whopping 42.5g carbs! Not as bad at 5.3g for one piece (for 8 servings), but still... Did I make a mistake here? Is net carbs only the "digestible" amount of carbohydrate?

Go to the recipe section and read the thread MCS started on Yeast Rolls which the rest of us turned into a loaf of bread! It's pretty good!
