loaf of flax bread with slices of bread

Flax Bread- keto, paleo and low carb

Beth Bollinger of Nest Wellness
This easy keto flax bread is also paleo (grain free) and low carb and of course, gluten free. The batter mixes up quickly in just one bowl. This flax bread is nutty in flavor and the texture is reminiscent of fine ground cornbread. This flax bread is good toasted or eaten warm with butter right out of the oven! Just 2 net carbs and 7 grams of protein per slice, and of course blood sugar friendly too. Makes one loaf.
