I may be eating clean AND low carb now, but that doesn’t mean I want to give up bread. I think I might become downright evil if I couldn’t have a slice of toast with a bowl of warm soup on a cold evening. I mean, I still want to actually enjoy my food!

So I did a search for low-carb bread, and then on a whim, searched for NO-carb bread. At the top of the list was this recipe on the Blogilates site.

Now Blogilates is a large and very popular site. So I figured I’d give this bread a try. Boy, what a flop!

Or at least my first attempt was. I tried this a few more times trying to figure out what the secret was. I mean, the photo showed a fabulous loaf of bread and the only thing I got out of the recipe was a firm pancake. I knew I had either done something terribly wrong, or there was some component I was missing. Something that may have been so obvious to the creator of the recipe, that it was forgotten in the directions. I’ve done that myself a few times with recipes I create.

So after several attempts, I realized that the trick to this bread is ensuring that everything is at room temperature. Particularly the eggs!

I also wasn’t crazy about the plain flavor, so I added some spice to jazz it up a bit, and in the end, I had a pretty decent loaf of bread!

Now I should mention that if you enter this recipe into a recipe calculator, it absolutely will tell you there are carbs in this bread. So for those who are familiar with low-carb eating, this one is all about the NET carbs. So keep that in mind if you count whole carbs.

Side note: This bread definitely has a different texture. So that could take some getting used to for some people. I also recommend using salted butter on this. Unsalted butter just doesn’t taste great with it. This does, however, make a pretty decent sandwich. The bread is filling, so the smaller slices aren’t an issue. It also has a better flavor if you toast it first. But don’t taste it when it’s warm out of the oven. This bread has to cool completely to let the flavors settle in. Sandwich toppings should be flavorful. All in all, it’s a good low-carb bread, even if you do have to get used to it.

  • 1 Standard Loaf Pan


  • 1 cup brown flaxseed (I grind my own flax seeds so it's fresh)
  • 1 cup golden flaxseed (I grind my own flax seeds so it's fresh)
  • 1 tbsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 5 large eggs (separated)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup water


  • Preheat oven to 325 F.
  • Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • In a separate, large mixing bowl, combine the flax meal, baking soda, garlic powder and onion powder. Stir well.Stir the egg yolks, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and water into the dry mixture. Stir well to combine.
  • Finally, fold in the egg whites. Continue to fold them in until they are well mixed in. They will lose most of their air, but that's okay. Just be sure you mix well as the dry mixture easily sinks to the bottom until all has been well combined.
  • Pour into a well-greased, standard-sized bread pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Cool fully before slicing.

  1. Could you use 2 c brown ground flax instead of 1 and 1?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Sherry – Sure!

  2. Hi,

    Just found your wonderful recipe site and don’t have long to search much, but will bookmark it for return. We’re gluten free, sugar free and I make everything we eat – no processed foods – cans, boxes, bags, etc.

    My question is about the bread pan size. I see so many recipes with no sizes mentioned and by standard that you mention, I’m assuming it must be the 4″x 8″. I used to bake bread every wk. for years, and the standard size was 5″x9″, with the smaller size being more for dessert type breads. Since it matters a lot, posting a size would be helpful.


    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ann – My pan measured 4 1/2 X 8 1/2 on the inside of the pan. Hope that helps. You could go smaller, but you may have to bake a little longer.

  3. Hi again,

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I knew there was a 1/2″ or 1/4″ on the pans, but couldn’t remember at that moment which was which, as I have a couple other sizes as well. I just checked and it’s the larger one that’s 1/4″ – 5 1/4″ x 9 1/4″. Another larger one I have is 5 1/4″ x 9.275.

    I will stick to the size you recommended.

    Thank you again

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ann – My pleasure! Let me know what you think of the bread!

  4. you never list how many net carbs on a slice of your bread. Could you add that please. Thank you.

      Susan – I no longer offer nutrition data due to the liability it presents for my growing business. But MyFitnessPal has an amazingly easy calculator. All you have to do is copy the url into their calculator and it will import all the ingredients for you and give you the nutrition data. Hope that helps.
