Nicole’s Bread Mix

Do you need an easy low-carb, and low-fat, loaf of bread, and sometimes you just can’t wait to order the mix, or you run out at the last minute? Yeah, me too!

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts with Trim Healthy women asking for a DIY version of our favorite easy bread mix, and so I went to my kitchen to begin testing, because I love a good baking challenge these days.

It took a few tries, but it totally paid off!

I made this bread mix from a similar ingredient profile to that of the Trim Healthy version, so this loaf has a similar fuel source and ALL the details are below! Man, I LOVE this lifestyle!

Ingredients:

Method:

Mix all dry ingredients together very well. This can be mixed in advance for even faster, and more convenient bread-like baking. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Put 1 1/3 Cup egg whites and 3/4 cup cool water into a blender and have it running on a low setting while you pour the dry ingredients into it. Let it run for an additional 30 seconds on low, and then pour it into a prepared loaf pan. I prepared mine with parchment paper to make it come out cleanly for the cooling process.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour in a preheated oven. Turn the oven off once the timer goes off, without opening the oven door, and allow it to sit in the oven for an additional 20 minutes while the temperature comes down some. Then, remove it from the oven, and the pan (parchment makes this part a SO EASY) and allow to cool on a cooling rack, completely before cutting into it.

** I got 18 slices, approximately 1/4in thick off of this loaf. 1/12th of this recipe is right at the limit for fat in a fuel pull meal on the Trim Healthy Lifestyle plan, so keep that in mind when you are using this in an E or FP setting. **

I have an Easier Easy Bread recipe too if you are out of egg whites, or don’t enjoy keeping them around.

Shelf Staple Bread Mix

Do you need an easy low-carb, and low-fat, loaf of bread? Yeah, me too!

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts with Trim Healthy women asking for a DIY version of our favorite easy bread mix, and so I went to my kitchen to begin testing, because I love a good baking challenge these days.

It took a few tries, but it totally paid off!

I made it easier, because it is completely shelf stable, AND only uses WATER as the liquid. How much easier could it get, right?

Go ahead and make this delicious chocolate cake that I created just so I would have a place to use all that amazing discard for my family, from those baking days that my timing is just off and I miss my baking window.

Do you ever have those kind of baking days?

Blend water, butter and 2 eggs in a blender until smooth and frothy. Add all other ingredients and blend until glossy and smooth. Pour into an 8×8 baking dish, and Bake at 350 for 30-35 min.

**This recipe serves 8 to keep the carb count down so that this can fall into an S setting on the Trim Heathy Plan. If you have a larger piece you will end up having a crossover.**

Overnight Injera

Do you love a little Ethiopian flatbread, but need an easier, truly gluten free, and faster way to make it? Oh GOOD, me too!

Ingredients:

Overnight Sponge –

  • 1/2 Cup, mature and ACTIVE, Gluten Free Sourdough Starter
  • 2 Cups Teff Flour
  • 2 Cups Untreated Water

Method:

Mix all the ingredients for the sponge together well, and place in a safe spot for 7 hours or overnight. Make sure this is covered by a light cloth.

Once 7 hours has passed, or overnight, you can make the injera. Mix the sponge with a spoon, throughly. Use a heated, non-stick, pan like this you will begin cooking the flatbreads by pouring 1/4 Cup of the sponge batter (which will be very thin) into the pan and swirling it around until the bottom is covered.

Do this quickly and don’t have the pan so hot that it will burn, so start at below “medium” and adjust from there. Once the bottom of the pan is covered, set it on the burner and cover with the lid and allow to to cook.

You will see lots of bubbles forming on the top and you will cook it on ONLY this one side until the top is dry to the touch. Use a spatula to remove from the heat and set on a plate. Continue this process until all the batter is cooked.
