Breads, Muffins and Crackers

In several of my recipes I list 'flour' and then in parentesis say 'your choice' This simply means use the flour you like best such as soy, oat or almond. You can also use a commercial LC bake mix or LC flour blend.

Gabi Bread - Original Recipe

1 pkg dry yeast (Rapid Rise/Highly Active)
1/2 teaspoon sugar *
1 1/8 cup "baby bottle warm" water (90-100°F)
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon Splenda
1 cup Wheat Gluten Flour **
1/4 cup oat flour
3/4 cup soy flour
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/4 cup coarse unprocessed wheat bran

Pour yeast into bottom of bread machine pan. Add sugar and water. Stir, and let sit. (This is "proofing" your yeast to see if your yeast is alive. If it's not bubbling, it's dead and you can replace it without wasting all of the other ingredients).

In the meantime, mix all other dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add oil to bread machine pan. Add mixed dry ingredients. Set your machine to the basic cycle (3-4 hours) and bake.

Cool on a rack and enjoy.

SEE INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING BREAD WITHOUT A MACHINE AT BOTTOM OF PAGE

* The sugar is totally consumed by the yeast and does not contribute to the carb count. I keep a few packets of restaurant sugar on-hand for this purpose so I never have to have a supply of actual sugar in the house.

** "I've had best results using "Bob's Red Mill: Vital Wheat Gluten Flour". Whatever brand you use should be 6 grams (no fiber) per 1/4 cup on label and approx. 75% - 80% protein. It works great, keeps the taste and texture just like bakery bread, and keeps the carb count very low."

Makes 16 slices. 3.4 carbs per slice.

TO MAKE BREAD WITHOUT A MACHINE:
Follow the recipe in the same order as for the bread machine.
After you mix and knead all of the ingredients together, shape the dough and place it in a oiled loaf pan.and set it into a warm, draft-free place for about 45 minutes to an hour (one option is to turn on your oven for a pre-heat for a minute and a half to get it warm, then turn it completely off before setting the dough in to let it rise in the oven.) The dough should rise to about twice its original size. Bake at 380 degrees until done. 35-45 minutes
