In our Greek facebook group, we have Mika who is a professional chef and is the one that gave us the recipe. It took me a while to try it out, but the moment I tried it I knew I would never bake another bread. Apart from the fact that it’s a bread really low in carbs (zero actually, since they’re all fiber), it’s the most “bready” bread one can have on keto. It is perfectly preserved in the fridge, as well as the freezer, and is really easy to make in the oven or in individual portions using the microwave. Try it out and you won’t regret it, I guarantee it!
Before I proceed, I want to stress that the accuracy in grams is absolutely important for this recipe, so if you don’t own a kitchen scale, don’t bother, it won’t work! Kitchen scales are very affordable, get yourself one and then bake it!
Starting with the individual portion: You will need 1 large egg, 10gr psyllium husk (found in organic stores), 20gr of mayonnaise (homemade or bought), a dash of baking powder, a splash of vinegar, salt, pepper and whatever spice you like. Mix well in a small bowl and put it in the microwave for 2-2.5 minutes (depending on how strong your microwave is). Let cool for a bit, slice it in half and ..eat it.
For a loaf of bread you’re going to need:
Ingredients (for 10 slices of bread):
100gr psyllium husk (or fiber mix, if you can find it)
3 tbsps of vinegar (ideally apple cider)
1 tsp baking powder
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl (perhaps if you use a blender, the final result will be even better). Put in mold and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes. The toothpick should come out dry at this point. Take it out of the mold and bake it for at least another half an hour at 150 degrees Celsius. We want it to dry completely.
Do not cut before is COMPLETELY cool. Use it like normal bread for whatever purpose you want (toast, dip in oil, french toast, bake in a toaster etc).
If you use psyllium each slice (weigh bread before cutting and divide by 10 so you know how many grams each slice should be) has 254 calories with ..negative net carbs (due to psyllium being just fiber), 21 gr of fat and 6 gr of protein.
If you use fiber mix each slice (do the same thing as above to measure slices) has 187 calories with negative net carbs, 17 gr of fat and 5 gr of protein.
These measurements are not completely accurate because they depend from the mayonnaise you will use – I used a different brand in those two versions, hence the difference in macros.
