So as you know I’ve been doing this Keto diet for nearly a month; I haven’t had a hard time with craving things I’m not allowed to have (which has been surprising really) and I’ve felt very satisfied with everything I eat. There isn’t another way of eating that I know of that you can eat such delicious food!
However I woke up this morning with an upset tummy and my go-to has always been some big carb ridden food – like crackers, or bread, etc. I didn’t have time (or really the energy) to try and make a loaf of bread or figure out any other type of food that might hit the spot. So after a ton of googling and reading through forums, I found a 90 second bread recipe – and I have to say I was quite impressed.
3 tablespoons almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoon butter (melted)
Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.
Stir and mix until as smooth as possible.
Put into desired dish – I put mine on a small plate.
Put in microwave for 90 seconds.
When it comes out of the microwave its still pretty light looking like the above pic, but fluffy. I decided I was going to make a grilled cheese so I cut the bread in half and put butter in a skillet and ‘fried’ both sides until golden brown. Then I added cheese and put the bread together.
It was absolutely delish! I could of ate more, but it really gave me that comfort food feel – and I didn’t go over my carbs!
For one serving of the bread (cheese and extra butter not included) 2 carbs, 17.6 grams of fat, 7.1 protein, and 250 calories.
**UPDATE** I have had a lot of questions about the nutritional value, and it varies depending on what type of almond flour , even the type of eggs you use. Please be sure to calculate your ingredients individually and do not base your diet upon the nutritional value given here. There are a ton of online (and phone apps) that will help you calculate correctly.
I think tomorrow I may add some chicken broth and have a really delicious lunch.
