Low Carb Carbalose Bread Stuffing

Carbalose Bread StuffingWhat to say.  This Carbalose Bread Stuffing is another way I use Carbalose Flour.  Not all that often, but the problem is that I know way too many recipes and it takes me a while to cycle through a lot of them, and I have to say, I should make it more often because it is so good and a great accompaniment to many meals. Please see Carbalose Flour Bread.


To read about Carbalose Flour please see the All Things Carbalose informational page.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Carbalose Bread Stuffing
  1. 8 oz. Dried Carbalose Bread Cubes (5½ -6 Cups)
  2. ¾ C Small Diced Celery
  3. ¾ C Small Diced Onion
  4. 1 C Water
  5. ½ C Butter
  6. 2 Beaten Eggs
  7. ¾ t Dried Sage
  8. ¾ t Poultry Seasoning
  9. ¾ t Chicken Base
  10. ¼ t Pepper
  11. More Water To Moisten
  1. Put cup water and butter in skillet, heat, and add celery & onions. Cook on low until very soft then add seasonings.
  2. Cool slightly and add beaten eggs.
  3. Add 1-1½ cups warm water to celery onion mixture and pour all into dried bread cubes. Mix, let sit, and add water as needed until stuffing is moist.
  4. Butter glass baking pan and bake at 350 degrees until beginning to brown on top.
  5. 8 Servings
  6. 190 Calories, 6.5g Protein, 8.3g Carbs, 4.4g Fiber, 3.9g Net Carbs
  1. Low Carb Additions: sautéed mushrooms, oysters, spinach, sausage, pine nuts, almonds, sugar-free cranberries, and small diced Granny Smith apples.
  2. Your bread cubes do not need to be dried, but if they are, they soak up lots more flavor.
  3. How we eat this: I cut out the backbone of a chicken, butterfly it, butter a piece of foil, put the stuffing roughly in the shape of a heart, put the chicken on top of the stuffing, and bake it at 350 degrees for about 1½ hours and wahoo it’s so good. As the chicken cooks the juices and fat go into the stuffing.
  4. Needless to say this goes well under/with Cornish game hen.

  14. 604 Calories, 43.8g Protein, 16g Carbs, 8.4g Fiber, 7.6g Net Carbs
  1. Nutritionals include bread crumbs and if you don't want or have the bread crumbs crushed pork skins are a great substitute.
  2. Any good shaved deli ham will serve in place of the proscuitto and it will of course alter the taste a bit.
  3. Any leftovers can be used for fabulous meatloaf sandwiches or portioned & frozen for further dinners.
  4. You can also opt to wrap the meatloaf in bacon cause bacon never hurts anything.

All Things Carbalose

All Things CarbaloseWhen I started posting recipes I thought I would just put the recipe for Carbalose Flour Bread up and then realized I use the flour and the bread for so many things that I would just make the whole category All Things Carbalose and that use Carbalose Flour in one way or another.  I hadn’t realized there were so many until I started posting recipes.  This flour may be purchased at Netrition.com There are about 14 cups per 3 lb. bag so order accordingly.

I have found Carbalose to be a godsend for low carbers and diabetics like myself.  The problems with the flour as I see them are:  1.) that there have not been many recipes for it and you cannot get them from Tova Industries, 2.) for many people including myself, it tastes very bitter, (this bitterness is corrected for in the bread-hence for all its uses) and lastly 3.) it is relatively expensive. There are tons of recipes for CarbQuik but not for the flour itself and because of its cost, a legitimate low carb bakery would have a tough time selling bread for around 10.00 a loaf.  I know Heath Squier and the Julian Bakery used to get almost that much for a tiny loaf of high carb bread but those days are thankfully long gone.

So, the recipes listed below are still in the various and appropriate sections of all the low carb recipes but for convenience sake they are all listed here too.  All nutritionals are listed below the bread recipe as well as with all respective recipes.

I do not use Carbquik so please do not confuse the two products.

Once you start making at least the bread for sandwiches or french toast, you will probably keep it on hand for crumbs & cubes because as you have these in your freezer it is so easy to make some of the recipes on this site and you will probably easily come up with recipes of your own.

Of the many reasons people come to my site via Google search  1.) is for Julian Bakery and 2.) is for Carbalose Flour Bread and I have to say, with some pretty comical search terms.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Almond Raspberry Braid

Carbalose Flour Almond Raspberry BraidIt seems unbelievable when you look at this Carbalose Flour Almond Raspberry Braid that it could possibly be low carb.  This is lovely and perfect with afternoon tea or a Sunday brunch.  With this basic braid recipe you can also fill it with savory vegetables Vegetable Mélange Encased In Pastry or meats or a combination of both to make a meal for two or a nice side dish for six people.  The combinations are almost endless.

Carbalose Flour may be purchased in 3 lb. bags from www.netrition.com

All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Carbalose Flour Almond Raspberry Braid
  1. 1½ C Carbalose Flour
  2. 2 T Coconut Flour
  3. 2 T Golden Flaxseed Meal
  4. 2 T Refined Coconut Oil
  5. 1 T Gluten
  6. ½ t Salt
  7. ⅛ t Guar Gum
  8. ⅛ t Xanthan Gum
  9. 1 Large Egg Beaten (Reserve 2 T For Brushing)
  10. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  11. 10 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  12. ½ C Warm Water
  13. 1 T Yeast
  14. 1 t Sugar
  1. 1 C Sugar Free Raspberry Preserves
  1. 1 ½ oz Cream Cheese
  2. 3 T Warm Heavy Cream
  3. ½ t Vanilla Extract
  4. ¼ t Almond Extract
  5. 1 T Melted Butter
  6. 6-7 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  7. ¼ C Toasted Sliced Almonds
  1. Put first 8 ingredients in processor.
  2. Bloom yeast with sugar in warm water for 10 minutes.
  3. Add Sucralose to top of bloomed yeast.
  4. Add beaten egg and heavy cream to processor, start, add water & yeast and process at least one minute.
  5. Carbalose flour is not sticky but eggs are so this time your dough might be a little sticky and as you are forming the rectangle to put into your pan it will then end up pretty much non-sticky.
  6. Since you will be rolling this into a rectangle place dough in your bread pan, cover with film and let rise about 30 minutes.
  7. Invert dough onto bench floured countertop and roll out rectangle to about 10”x16”.
  8. Now, leaving center 4” uncut and beginning at the top, cut every ¾” down one side and correspondingly down the other side at about a 60 degree angle. I use a bench scraper for this because it is blunt but it will cut completely through the dough and if you have to use a knife be very careful not to cut your counter.
  9. Spread center 2 ½” with raspberry filling.
  10. Brush about 1” of the inside braid tips with your reserved beaten egg.
  11. Starting, again at the top, bring one braid across filling and cross it with one from the other side all the way down.
  12. OK, here comes the tricky part. If you have help great and most of the time we don’t so…you have to kind of scrunch it up and quickly transfer braid to parchment lined sheet pan. (Or better yet your Silpat) Once you have made the transfer you can re-position and stretch it.
  13. Brush the entire braid with egg wash, cover with film and let rise 15-20 minutes. It may not rise much and it will a little in the oven. You want pastry a bit denser and not bread-like.
  14. Put Braid in 340 degree preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely.
  15. Put cream cheese in small bowl and beat. Add melted butter & both extracts and start adding the warm heavy cream a little at a time until it will “drizzle” and then drizzle the top of your braid and sprinkle with toasted almonds. Voila-finished.
  16. 12 Servings
  17. 143 Calories, 5.7g Protein, 11.7g Carbs, 3.2g Fiber, 8.5g Net Carbs
  1. There are certainly other options for your filling. Any sugar free jam would work and any butter, sugar, and ground nut combo would work. So experiment and have fun. An orange glaze on a strawberry filled pastry comes to mind.
  2. If it’s summer and you have access to fresh raspberries the drizzle is wonderful on them too.
  3. **If you decide to use this braid recipe with a savory filling reduce Sucralose to 4 drops.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Tortillas

Low Carb Carbalose Flour TortillasI don’t really have much to say about these Carbalose Flour Tortillas except they are beyond delicious and terribly functional.  I have to say, because I am diabetic and know how to cook, that Carbalose flour has been a gift.  I am extremely carb sensitlve and this flour does virtually nothing to my blood sugar.  Since we are all different and especiallly if you are diabetic, then you need to check all the Carbalose recipes for yourself. Carbalose Flour may be purchased in 3 lb. bags from www.netrition.com

All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Carbalose Flour Tortillas
  1. 4 Cups Carbalose Flour + More For Bench Flour
  2. ¼ t Guar Gum
  3. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
  4. 1½ t Salt
  5. ½ t Baking Powder (Not Really Needed)
  6. ½ C Lard (Or 1 Stick Butter If You Have To)
  7. 2 C Boiling Water
  8. 9 Drops Liquid *Sucralose
  1. Place the flour in processor.
  2. Add dry ingredients and fat.
  3. Add Sucralose to water.
  4. Start processor and pour boiling water over the ingredients. Process for about a 1 minute. Dough should be very moist, very soft, and will not be sticky.
  5. Cut the dough into 14-2½ oz. pieces and form into little balls and flatten to a four inch disk with your fingers tips.
  6. Cover your flattened disks and let rest for 20 minutes.
  7. Apply bench flour and starting from the center roll out and then in until you form an oval. Lift up the oval and turn it 45 degrees, and roll it out again. Turn it 45 degrees again to the right until you have an 8” circle (or something resembling one. You want your tortillas as thin as you can get without them tearing.
  8. Place the tortilla on a hot (375-400 degree) griddle pan, or cast-iron skillet. It may or may not forms small bubbles on the upside of the tortilla. When they are just turning brown flip over the tortilla, and if it bubbles or inflates a bit-stick the tip of a knife in them.
  9. I just stack all 14 of these babies one on top of another as they come off the griddle and when I'm finished I wrap the whole stack with film, stick them in a 1 gallon freezer bag and freeze them. Unlike traditional tortillas they do NOT STICK TOGETHER and you can get them straight from the freezer one by one.
  10. 14 Servings
  11. 152 Calories, 9g Protein, 13.7g Carbs, 8.3g Fiber, 5.4g Net Carbs
  1. Please note the use of *Sucralose in each of the recipes using Carbalose is only to negate the bitter taste of the flour and DOES NOT make the recipe “sweet”.
  2. If you have a Silpat these can be rolled on it and you will not need the additional bench flour.
  3. Lard is the true secret to real tortillas. Not Crisco and definitely not the hydrogenated crap you can buy in you local grocery store-I’m talking about your own rendered lard which is actually quite easy to do yourself and if not it can be purchased on the internet. In your dreams you cannot imagine how good lard makes a tortilla. It is much better to use butter than either of the other two alternatives.
  4. Don’t forget, you can make your own low carb chips with these. Cut each tortilla into eight wedges, brush lightly with oil, sprinkle with a bit of salt and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. You of course can also fry them in oil and…yes this is what I do…in tallow. Oh my goodness.
  5. If you tear a tortilla when you are rolling it, just ball it up and start over.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Bread

Carbalose Flour BreadAs I said at the beginning of the Julian Bakery Page, like all true diabetics I went on the internet trying to find a “recipe” for low carb bread.  I never did find that recipe but the quest led me to do this website and is the culmination of this Carbalose Flour Bread.  Who’d have guessed that looking for a silly bread recipe would also catch a crook.


Carbalose Flour BreadCarbalose Flour BreadCarbalose Flour BreadIt took me many, many tries to get this recipe just right and I paid nearly $700.00 to have it tested through Exova Laboratories so I know all the figures are correct.

If you think you can’t live without bread then here you go. This bread is good, good, good.

  • Equipment Needed:
  • Large Cuisinart or other Large Food Processor
  • Electric Knife
  • Small Cutting Board
  • 4½” x 8½” x 3″ Small Glass Loaf Pan
  • If you are use a larger loaf pan then your bread will be longer, not rise as high, and will be wider that the picture above.
  • Use this recipe if you have a Standard 4″x8″ Loaf Pan

Martha’s Picture

If you do not have an electric knife you will probably not get the slice counts.  This of course is OK but your nutritionals would vary slightly and accordingly.

This recipe may or may not work in a bread machine.  I personally do not have one so I am unable to test it.


Use for Stuffed Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast and the dough may also be used for rolls, buns, individual baguettes, and whatever else you might imagine.  Also makes great bread crumbs and yes, even Basic Pizza Crust.  A roll, hot out of the oven?  Slathered with butter?  Heavenly.

For many other Carbalose Flour recipes please see All Things Carbalose informational page.

If you will just make 3 loaves of this, one for bread, one for croutons, and one for crumbs, I doubt you will ever want to be without them.

  • Carbalose Flour may be purchased in 3 lb. bags from www.netrition.com
  • Complete Nutritionals for rolls, buns, baguettes, cubes and crumbs are below recipe.

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread
  1. 2¼ C Carbalose Flour
  2. ¼ C Wheat Gluten
  3. ¼ C Coconut Flour
  4. 1 t Salt
  5. ¼ t Guar Gum
  6. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
  7. ¼ C Golden Flaxseed Meal***
  8. ¼ C Warm Water***
  9. 3 T+1 t Coconut Oil
  10. 1 C Water + (Only If Needed)
  11. 1½ T Yeast
  12. 1 t Sugar
  13. 7 Drops Liquid Sucralose*
  1. Bloom yeast & sugar in 1 cup warm water for 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Add flaxseed to ¼ C warm water for 10 minutes. (It will become quite gelatinous)
  3. Put first 6 ingredients in processor and pulse to blend.
  4. Add 3 T melted coconut oil and pulse to blend.
  5. Add flaxseed mixture to dry ingredients and pulse to blend.
  6. Add liquid Sucralose to top of bloomed yeast and with machine running add to dry ingredients.
  7. Run processor for at least a minute and probably a little longer adding any additional water as needed 1 T at a time.
  8. You want to make sure there is enough water. Dough should hold together, have a loose consistency and should not be sticky on your hands. At this point the dough should have the same look and feel of regular bread.
  9. Form into a ball and put into un-greased bowl and cover with film for about 20-25-30 minutes or until slightly less than doubled. If over-proofed it will not rise well the second time and will more than likely "fall", leaving a less that desirable looking loaf.
  10. Preheat oven to 340 degrees.
  11. Take dough out of bowl and knead (very gently) until you are sure ALL air pockets are out.
  12. Form gently into loaf, put into greased (remaining 1 t coconut oil) pan, very loosely cover with film and let rise for 25-30 minutes. Do not over proof as it will raise a little more in the oven.
  13. Bake 45 minutes.
  14. Rest the bread in the pan at least 10 minutes.
  15. Make sure bread sides are not sticking to pan, remove gently, put on wire rack, and cool completely.
  16. Slice bread with an electric knife.

  1. Please note the use of *Sucralose in each of the recipes using Carbalose is only to negate the bitter taste of the flour and DOES NOT make the recipe “sweet”.
  2. Slice size is equivalent to a normal slice of pretty much any other normal bread.
  3. ** I plugged all the ingredients (except the Carbalose Flour) into a food database to get the figures below and added them to the Carbalose figures to get my Totals Per Loaf.
  4. ***The only difference between this recipe and the first one is soaking the flaxseed in warm water. It turns into a gelatinous mixture that seems, for some reason, to give the bread better structure, consistency & with less chance of “holes” in the bread. I have now tried this several times and it absolutely does work.
  5. If at any time after the loaf is form and touched, the indentation will remain even after baking and the same thing when taking out of the pan until the loaf in completely cooled. This is the reason I keep using the word gently.
  6. Flaxseed in warm water was suggested by Jeff L and my hat goes off to him.
