Default Shanny's Low-carb Sourdough Bread

Since I made up the Heloise olive spread the other day, I've gotten a lotta mileage outta this bread. Slicing it very thin & toasting it, it makes a delightful "cracker" for the olive spread - and any other dips/spreads we happen to have around.

Shanny's Low-carb Sourdough Bread

1 cups vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup King Arthur rye flour blend *
1/2 cup bread flour
1/8 cup soy flour
1/8 cup oat flour
1/8 cup flaxseed meal
1/8 cup almond flour
3 - 4 tbsp. harvest grains blend **
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. dry yeast
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 - 1 cups sourdough starter
water as needed

1. Combine first nine ingredients & stir to mix well.

2. Combine salt, yeast & oil with the sourdough starter & blend well.

3. Gently knead in the flour mixture, adding 1/2 to 2/3 cup water to maintain softness of dough.

4. Let rise about 45-60 minutes until double in bulk.

5. Do not handle the dough much after the first rise - just shape it & place it in a loaf pan to rise another 30-45 minutes.

6. Bake at 380 (190C) about 50 minutes. (I used a glass pan, so this temperature & time may need to be adjusted for a metal pan)

* rye flour blend consists of pumpernickel, white rye, medium rye, and KA bread flour.

** This is another KA concoction of oat berries, wheat flakes, rye flakes, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, millet, flax seeds & poppy seeds.

My sourdough starter is nothing more than unbleached white flour and distilled water. Started many years ago with a packet of Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis, it has been scrupulously maintained for many years & still grows vigorously. Lately I've neglected feeding it for as much as two months, but it comes back like gangbusters every time!

A quarter-inch slice is about 75 calories, 9g carbs & 1g of dietary fiber. This belies the fact that the buckwheat flour is resistant starch, so the carb affect is less it would seem.
1 serving = 1 " slice

p.s. I haven't been testing it since, but when I first concocted this recipe, a 1 oz. slice of it (lavishly buttered - heheh) actually dropped my BG at the first hour test. At the second hour test it had risen 11 points, and dropped back from there. Nice meter-friendly bread, at least for me. Hope so for you too!

This is a wonderful recipe about the low carbohydrate's bread recipes. Maybe I'll try to bake it that once when I have been vacant in my busy day.

Welcome, dmiranda! I'm going to be tweaking this recipe again pretty soon - trying coconut flour in it. Many whole grain breads have a natural sweetness and I think the coconut flour will just enhance that plus add more moisture and a more tender texture.

Hope you get a chance to bake it & that it's friendly to your meter!

Thank you for joining us and do come back often!

take care,
