Oopsie bread | Low Carb Bread #10

Posted on

Another day I was wondering why this bread is called Oopsie bread

But then as I was making it, I noticed the recipe is so simple that you just beat some eggs and, at the end, your reaction can only be “Oopsie, I got some bread”!

Bad jokes aside, you may have heard other names for this famous low carb bread, such as cloud bread, zero carb bread, and flatbread.

The name itself doesn’t matter, what is important here is to know that such simple recipe exists and deserves a try!
It’s also possible to freeze them; I do it every now and then and it works beautifully.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 120 grams of cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon of psyllium husk powder
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
Directions
  1. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks, placing them in two different bowls.
  2. Whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until very stiff. You know it’s ready when you are able to turn the bowl upside down without the egg whites moving.
  3. In another bowl, mix egg yolks and cream cheese. Then add psyllium husk powder and baking powder.
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix, trying to keep the air in the egg whites.
  5. On a baking tray covered with parchment paper, pour the mix making 6 large circles.
  6. Bake it at 150C (300F) for 25 minutes or until golden. ⏰
  7. It’s DONE! 🎉

Sesame seed crackers | Low Carb Crackers #1

Posted on

I always have some of these Sesame seed crackers in my pantry. 🙂

They are perfect for a quick-and-easy breakfast or snack.
I even know people that like to have them for lunch too.

These crackers taste super neutral and you can spread anything you like over them.
I personally like mine with butter or avocado.

They are also gluten and nut free!
And you can make it dairy free as well, just skip the cheese from the recipe below (texture-wise it won’t make a big difference).

Ingredients
  • 1 and ¼ cups of sesame seeds
  • ½ cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese (optional if you want to make a dairy free version)
  • 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 eggs
  • salt to taste
Directions
  1. Mix together all the ingredients: sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, parmesan cheese, psyllium husk, water, eggs, and salt.
  2. Line a parchment paper on a baking tray and spread out the resulting mixture over it.
  3. Preheat oven at 170°C (340°F) and bake it for 20 minutes. ⏰
  4. Then, briefly take them out of the oven and carefully cut the crackers in the shape you like.
  5. Lower the heat to 140°C (280°F) and bake it for another 40 minutes. ⏰
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉
    Let them cool before removing from the baking tray.

Did you know? Crackers are so versatile that is incredibly hard to pinpoint their real origin.
Many cuisines around the world have at least a few variations or recipes that pose as crackers.

Super healthy BANANA BREAD 🍌 without sugar | Healthy cakes #3

Posted on

Today I am bringing here one of my favourite recipes: Banana Bread without sugar and wheat flour.

The secret to get this banana bread done right is to use overripe bananas, yep those ones you are about to throw away.

They are important because they are super sweet and will give to this cake perfect sweetness, with no need to add any extra sugar.

And if you were not convinced just yet how amazing this bread is let me tell you that it is also gluten, dairy, and nut free!

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons of psyllium
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil, melted
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
Directions
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix coconut flour, psyllium, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda.
  2. Meanwhile in another bowl, mix eggs, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Then add the mashed bananas and mix them well.
  3. As I mentioned above, make sure to use super ripe bananas for this recipe, this is what will make the result nicely sweet.
  4. Now, stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture.
  5. Grease a loaf pan, or use a silicone one if you prefer. Mine here is a 20cm one.
  6. Pour your batter into the loaf pan and bake it for 30 minutes at 160C (320F). ⏰
  7. It’s DONE! 🎉
    Let it cool down before serving.

Yeah, I know this is technically a bread – after all, the name is banana bread – but I consider it an excellent healthy cake option for those with some sort of food intolerance.

Vanilla muffins | Healthy cakes #2

Posted on

I have a special space in my stomach for these Vanilla Muffins, no matter how much I ate before there will be always some space for them! ❤️

They are super fluffy and moist, also dairy and nut free, packed with fibre and good stuff.

My number one option when I want to surprise guests with a healthy cake. Typical comments are “no way, this cannot be healthy, that’s impossible!” or “are you sure this is gluten free?!”. 😝

Well, they are indeed perfect and delicious, and If I were you I would run to the kitchen right now to make your own batch!

Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup of sesame seeds
  • 6 medium eggs
  • ½ cup of melted coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup of honey (or any sweetener you like)
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup of coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon of psyllium husks
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
Directions
  1. In a food processor add the sesame seeds and mix for 4 minutes.
  2. Then, add eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract and mix them for more 5 minutes.
  3. Next, add the coconut flour, baking powder, psyllium husks, and salt. Mix just enough to incorporate all ingredients.
  4. Pour the batter into a greased muffin tin, leaving some space as these muffins raise well.
  5. Preheat oven at 180C (350F) and bake it for 30 minutes. ⏰
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉

Tip: For a lower carb version, replace honey with an artificial sweetener of your choice.

Did you know? Muffins are a typical American tea snack and share a lot of similarities with cupcakes, especially on how they are prepared and the basic ingredients.
A key difference, however, is that whilst cupcakes are widely accepted to be exclusively sweet, muffins can also be prepared in different savory varieties. Maybe I will bring you a savory muffin in the future? Who knows!?

Cauliflower bread | Low Carb Bread #9

Posted on

In case you are like me and LOVE cauliflower (and bread), this cauliflower bread is made for us! 🤗

It’s super delicate, light and fluffy, with only 3 grams of net carbs per slice, an awesome low carb bread option!

As I said above, this is a delicate bread, so I highly recommend you to toast it before serving or using as sandwich bread. Toasting will help to keep its shape.

Ingredients
  • 4 cups (575 grams) of cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 5 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
Directions
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  2. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil and cover it with a baking sheet. I’m using a 20 cm one here.
  3. Next, add in the batter making the surface even.
  4. We will bake it in two stages, first bake it for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 190C (374F). ⏰
  5. Then reduce the temperature to 180C (356F) and bake for more 50 minutes ⏰, or until risen, golden and cooked through.
  6. It’s DONE! 🎉 This is a very delicate bread so let it cool in the pan before removing from it.
    I also suggest toasting your slice before eating for the best taste and texture.
