Flax Sandwich Buns


Low Carb Flax Sandwhich Buns
As my low carb lasagna was on it's last 15 minutes in the oven, I jumped on my Low Carb Pinterest Board to see if I'd pinned any quick and easy recipes for a low carb bread that would make do as a sub for garlic bread. I ran across THIS RECIPE for Flax Sandwich Buns, which was really my only choice because it was the only one I had all the ingredients for, but I really was pleased with this recipe! The taste took a few minutes to get used to i'll admit. I'm now very used to the taste of baked goods that use nut flours, but i'd never baked anything using flax meal as my base. I will say that these tasted best when very toasted.  I simply used a regular muffin tin to bake them, then I  cut them in half and then put them on a cookie sheet and back in the oven on broil for about 2 minutes. You could also toaster them.


I added butter and extra garlic salt for the ones I was eating with my lasagna.

and let me tell you, it was SO nice to have a hefty chunk of bread to eat with lasagna! 



I also toasted 2 more in the morning to make a delicious mini sausage, egg, and cheese mcmuffin.

According to the Original Recipe, from Where Your Treasure Is,  these contain only 3.5 grams of carbs each!

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
