This Vegan Low Carb Bread is the bread of bread. This gluten-free recipe is a protein and fibre-packed bread recipe rich in healthy nutrients. The soft texture with a lightly crispy crust makes this low carb bread excellent for sandwiches.

This grain-free bread is easy to slice, and it is moist with a hint of sesame flavour. I promise you this vegan bread is impressive!

If you are counting carbs, each slice of this gluten-free bread has about 4 grams of net carbs and is acceptable on a keto diet.

the core ingredients in this Vegan Low Carb Bread recipe,

The main ingredients in this grain-free bread are almond flour, cassava flour, flaxseed, psyllium husk, and sesame seeds keeping this bread super healthy.

For moistness, a splash of extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar. To keep this bread light and yeast free, I used baking powder mixed with baking soda.

I always wanted to create a bread recipe that takes very little work and is perfect in every way. This Vegan Low Carb Bread is the bread recipe that ticks all the boxes.

To make the bread dough takes only about five minutes, you really can’t beat that.

Just mix the dry ingredients, add the liquids and briefly mix to combine. Place the dough in a bread loaf pan and shape it into a bread loaf. Nothing to it.

The one thing about this low carb bread recipe you have to be patient because it takes time to bake. You can’t rush the baking process.

let’s talk about psyllium, an essential ingredient in this low carb bread recipe,

This vegan bread is made without eggs and xanthan gum. Using psyllium husk is excellent in this vegan bread recipe because it replaces eggs. Eggs are often used in low carb grain-free bread recipes.

When psyllium is mixed with liquids, it becomes a gel-like mixture, similar to an egg and is a suitable replacement in most egg-free recipes.

Psyllium is a form of water-soluble plant fiber that comes from the seeds of a plant known as Plantago ovato, which is native to southern and western Asia.

The health benefits of psyllium husk are astonishing. Psyllium can help relieve constipation and treat diarrhea.

Some psyllium studies show that psyllium is also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome and regulate blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.

Some studies show that psyllium can help lower heart disease by lowering blood pressure, improving lipid levels, and strengthening the heart muscle.

why are sesame seeds so good for us? 

I added sesame seeds to this Vegan Low Carb Bread recipe because these tiny seeds are flavourful, adding a slightly nutty flavour to this healthy bread, but more importantly, they have many health benefits.

The oil in sesame seeds helps to remove dental plaque.

The seeds are rich in anti-inflammatory properties helping our skin stay soft and supple.

They are rich in polyunsaturated fats, and sesamin is known to keep blood pressure level in check.

The sesame seeds contain Omega-6, fiber, iron, calcium and magnesium, and because of their high healthy fat content, these tiny seeds help boost our energy.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cassava flour
  • 1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp. whole GF Psyllium husk, I recommend using this brand, some others turn the colour of the bread purple
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds plus 1 Tbsp. for topping
  • 1 Tbsp. GF baking powder
  • 1 tsp. Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
  • 2 cups warm water (warm to the touch, not hot about 105 F)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. Apple cider vinegar

    Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F and line a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper
  • Using a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients
  • In a small bowl, whisk together water, olive oil and apple cider vinegar and pour into dry ingredients
  • Using a spatula, mix to combine until you form a ball of dough. Do not over mix
  • Transfer batter into the prepared loaf pan shaping the dough into a bread loaf with a round top. Do not flatten the top of the loaf, or it will become dense. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds over the top
  • Set the loaf aside for 10 minutes to let the fiber fully absorb the liquids
  • Bake for 55 minutes, then loosely cover with foil reduce oven temperature to 375 F and bake for additional 35 minutes
  • Lift the loaf from the pan by using the parchment paper and place on a cooling rack to cool fully before slicing. This takes 2 - 3 hours. Enjoy

      • Kristina November 13, 2020

        thank you!

    • Kelsey November 16, 2020

      I never write reviews, but oh my god this bread is soooo great! I’ll admit I was skeptical when I mixed the dough together and it was a congealed lump (and in the spirit of honesty I did pat down the top a little). But wow it baked up beautifully and has a really neat flavor profile. I subbed coconut flour for cassava because it’s cheaper. Sweet recipe!

      • Kristina November 17, 2020

        Thank you so much for letting me know. I am so happy you enjoyed it!

    • Lynn May 8, 2021

      This bread is great! It was a bit dense in the center, and I’m wondering whether some adjustment for altitude is called for. Do you have any ideas about whether this is necessary and, if so, how to do this?

      • Kristina May 8, 2021

        High altitude (over 3,000 feet) affects bread baking because the lower air pressure allows the yeast to rise 25 to 50 percent faster, and the drier air makes the flour drier. If the dough over-rises, the results might be a heavy, dry loaf or misshapen or collapsed loaf

    • Lynn May 8, 2021

      Yes, Kristina. Thanks for your response. I’m at just under 6,000 feet. That is why I was asking whether you could give me some idea of how to adjust the recipe for altitude?

    • Danielle October 15, 2021

      Hi i would live to try this recipe although how can i replace the cassava flour by something else ? Could i use sourghum flour instead ?? Thank you

      • Kristina October 15, 2021

        yes you can replace sorghum flour for cassava Danielle.

    • Alysha March 4, 2022

      Hello :)! My mom and I lovvveeee this bread. Thank you so much.
      I am wondering how long this bread will last in the fridge? Thank you!

      • Kristina March 4, 2022

        Alysha, I am so happy to hear that. The bread should keep up to 4 days when refrigerated. Enjoy!

    • Lydia March 22, 2022

      Hi, do you thinking this recipe would this bread recipe work in a bread machine? Thanks!

      • Kristina March 22, 2022

        Lydia, I am sorry I don’t know since I have not made it in a bread machine. If you do make it in a bread machine, please let us know how the bread turned out. Thank you.

    • Dominika August 22, 2022

      Hello!

      I’m just starting an AIP diet which tells me to avoid a lot of things, but among them is almond flour. Could this be replaced by coconut flour and would it be 1:1? Thanks in advance!

      • Kristina August 22, 2022

        Dominika, coconut flour will not work. This recipe’s primary ingredient is almond flour and can’t be replaced by just one flour. I suggest checking out another one of our bread recipes without almond flour. Sorry

    • Valerie November 14, 2022

      I tried this, and it’s good, but it did not have the rise I was expecting. How do you get it smooth on top without patting it down? Also, how big is the dough ball when it’s done mixing? Same as picture #2 or smaller? Thank you!

      • Kristina November 14, 2022

        Valerie, using a narrower loaf pan will give you a better rise. As far as smooth on top, I have no issue, but it can be imperfect. The dough ball is exactly as pic # 2. I hope you used psyllium husk and not powder. The other thing I can think of is not to overmix the dough. This is a good pan to use

    • Stacy Rose November 15, 2022

      Can this bread be made in a bread machine, on the gluten-free setting?

      • Kristina November 16, 2022

        Stacy I don’t know because I have not used a bread machine for this recipe. Sorry
