Mmmmm ... Bread, well, Kind of

Gluten-free, sugar-free ... delicious!

Focaccia-Style Flaxseed Meal Bread

I altered this recipe but you can find the original here.

•1 cup flax seed meal
•1 cup gluten-free flour mix
•1 tbsp baking powder
•1 tsp salt
•1 tbsp artificial sweetener (OR Stevia would be a better option)
•2 eggs + 3 egg whites, beaten
•1/2 cup water
•1/3 cup canola oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Prepare pan (I used a brownie pan, about 9x9 inches) with parchment paper.

3. Mix dry ingredients well using a whisk.

4. In another small bowl mix water, oil and eggs well.  Add to dry mix and combine well.

5. Let batter set for 1 to 2 minutes to thicken up a bit.

6. Pour batter onto pan.  You will get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan.

7. Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.

8. Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want. You don't need a sharp knife, can use a spatula.

Then I made a veggie sandwich with it that included, vegan margarine, lettuce, portabello mushrooms, Dijon mustard, sunflower sprouts and an olive. Very good!
