In the chase of flour, carb and gluten-free options, when it comes to bread a lot of people find it difficult.
In general, I would say that elimination bread is the best you can do. If always seeking replacements you might get an urge and start to crave normal bread. Eventually, that can ruin your healthy lifestyle or make it harder for you to stick to it.
Once you come to peace with the fact, that bread is not the best for you, and you eliminate it from your diet you will feel much better.
With that said, you might be able to still have some bread once in a while and when you do, I suggest using this recipe or my Morning Vegetable Buns recipe, which also contains vegetables.
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
- Blend the eggs with cottage cheese and melted butter until the lumps have disappeared.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well until the mixture is smooth, use an electric whisk.
- Let the dough rest for approx. 10 minutes.
- Shape the dough into buns with wet hands and place them on a baking sheet with baking paper and sprinkle them with sesame seeds.
- Bake the buns in the hot oven for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden.
However you like :)
I love them hot with melted butter or a good piece of cheese.
Anything special to remember:
It is important to let the dough rest because the many fibres in the dough will make it firmer and easier to shape into buns.
If practising the Clean-Living Diet without diary, you can change cottage cheese into mayo. Make sure to use a smaller amount. And change butter into olive or coconut oil.
Almond flour can be changed into coconut flour or Psyllium-Husk. If you use Psyllium-Husk use about 30 g.
Psyllium Husk: has many health benefits. It helps relieve constipation, lowers blood sugar levels, lowers cholesterol levels and it has prebiotic effects.
If you have any fibre allergies, they might not be the best option for you though. As with anything else that has high fibre content, try to eat a little first and see how you react.
