Whatever "bread" I eat I make in small amounts--I came up w/ a wheatless recipe w/ almost no net carbs: flaxseed meal, whole almond flour, oat fiber (get it from Netrition), soy or whey protein powder, egg or substitute, baking powder, sweetening/flavoring as needed then nuked. I usually make it in an 8-oz or so bowl for a snack--today I am going to try it in my whoopie pie maker so I can have sandwich buns at last!! I have a cholesterol problem so I use the egg substitute and soy protein but you don't have to. I haven't tried it in a loaf-size; I have a divided lasagne pan that I got for making cocktail-size loaves for mini toasts or sandwiches; will let you know how THAT turns out.
I haven't heard of this bread. What I do is make the "muffin in a minute" recipe but use a bowl rather than a mug. Ii turns out about the size of a slice of bread and looks like wheat bread. Of course it doesn't taste exactly like bread but a great alternative. I slice in in half and put deli meat between the slices. I have even done a grill cheese, too.
Thank you Ken1939- I did buy a loaf of Udi's gluten free bread. I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich, and decided to try it. It is just not the same, so tasteless. And yes, very expensive. I live at the end of nowhere and must order from the internet.
I made the Mr Peanut bread, using almond butter instead of peanut butter. It is better than no bread at all, but one can taste the nut butter. Thank you also for the mold tip. I will slice this bread and freeze it. I intend to use cream cheese or Walden Farms spread with it.
I have not tried Mr Peanut bread. However, Julian Bakery (http://www.julianbakery.com/) makes 6 different GF breads. I have not tried them all because I'm not gluten intolerant.
Of the one's I have tried, the "Paleo Almond" is the most like regular bread. Stay away from their 2 "Zero Carb" breads. They are taste free as well as carb & gluten free - more like cardboard than bread.
The problem with the Paleo Almond bread is that it molds rather quickly. I have to repackage it 4 slices per Ziploc bag & freeze them in order to not lose any to mold. This is the only Julian Bakery bread that I have tried that has this problem.
I sort of like the "Paleo Coconut" bread, also. The taste is different from that of regular bread, it is much more moist & has a heavier texture - but still not bad. Plus, keep it in the refrigerator & it does not mold.
For those that do not need a GF bread I recommend their "Amazing Sourdough" & "Pure & Simple Kamut" breads. The sourdough bread is a full sized loaf, the kamut (kamut is an ancient grain) is a small round loaf - just the right size if you are on a diet & need something to put a small amount of peanut butter on.
None of these breads are cheap, & you have to pay for shipping. You are required to ship UPS 2nd day air if you do not live in California or a neighboring state. Gets expensive, but sometimes I just must have & BLT or toast with peanut butter, so I pay the price.
Hope this helps. Keep up the great progress you are making on you weight!
Have any of you tried this bread? I am gluten intolerant and having a terrible time. Gluten free bread is too high in carbs, and low carb breads have gluten in them. I hate to cook, esp in the mornings. How did you like this bread? Arielle
