Bread is the one keto thing that I find is freaking all over the map. Some recipes look amazing online but I can never get them to come out right – too dense, too dry, too…ummm.. NOT BREAD.
Then there’s the ‘oopsie’ and ‘cloud’ breads. If you follow me, you know the two things I despise when looking at a recipe are:
Too many steps
SEPARATING AND FOLDING FREAKING EGGS!!!
If I have to separate 27.5 eggs, while standing on one foot, holding one eye closed 56.78989234%, at 65.243F but only when Mars is retrograde to Pluto (and we know Pluto is no longer a planet so you do know how hard that is???)…it isn’t going to happen.
NOT THIS HOBBIT!
Plus, oopsie and cloud breads taste like, well, NOT BREAD. If I want a dry omelet, I’ll make one.
I needed bread for stuffing. I have a dinner roll recipe that works well. Can I tweak that for a loaf of bread?
Oh. And no separating eggs. No folding whites. No 142 bowls and utensils. Nope. A blender will do the trick :).
Let’s rock so bread:).
Hobbit's Protein Bread
Ingredients (makes 10 slices):
5 tbsp coconut flour
4 tbsp unflavored whey isolate ( used Piping Rock – not affiliated with them, just good stuff!)
2 tbsp butter (melted)
2 tsp bacon grease (melted)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp xantham gum
1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/8 cup warm coconut or almond milk
1/2 envelope (about 1tsp) of fast-rising yeast
Preheat oven to 350F
Warm the milk to a little above body temp, then dissolve the yeast in it.
Get out a bread pan – I used a 4×8. If not silicone, lightly grease.
Dump all the ingredients (including milk\yeast mixture) into a blender or food processor. Melt the grease, add that as well, then blend\process until well combined and a little thick – think cake batter consistency. Pour\spoon into your bread pan, then spread smooth with spatula or back of a spoon.
Pop in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the top browns. Take it out
and let it cool completely before turning onto a cooling rack.
Look at them nooks and crannies!!!!!
