Ingredients

Dry Ingredients:

Psyllium Husk Mixture:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup butter or olive oil

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  • In measuring cup, combine the warm water, flaxseed and psyllium husk powder. Whisk until smooth and let sit for 1-2 minutes before adding to the dry ingredients.
  • With the mixer running on low, add the psyllium husk mixture along with the eggs, honey and butter. Increase the speed to medium-high speed and beat for 6 minutes.
  • Scoop the batter and smooth into a grease 9x5 pan. Let rise in a warm spot for 45-60 minutes. The bread will not double in size but should rise a few inches.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Bake the bread for 35-45 minutes, until the internal temperature registers 200F on an instant-read thermometer or until the top is golden and seems firm when tapped.
  • Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool for at least another 20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

Notes

MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Substitute the butter for olive oil or oil of choice
This recipe will not work without the eggs, unfortunately.
  • I recommend using a high, quality gluten-free all-purpose flour for gluten-free baking. For best results, pick a blend that contains xanthan gum or another binder.
  • Be sure to carefully measure  the dry ingredients so you get the right amounts.
  • Bake the bread in a glass loaf pan. This helps it rise and brown properly.  
  • Let the bread rise for the right amount of time. If the bread rises for too long it may sink slightly in the middle once it’s baked.
