Low Carb Carbalose Bread. There are many of you who don’t have the same (rather odd) size loaf pan that I used to develop the original Carbalose Flour Bread so this slightly smaller loaf of low carb carbalose bread is for you. I recently bought a standard size 4”x8” loaf pan, adjusted the ingredients, and it did indeed turn out perfectly. Do not use a larger pan for this as it will not work. As you look carefully at the pictures notice I did use my electric knife and I did get 18 slices+2 heels. Each slice weighs on average about 32g, some a little larger and some a little smaller and those heels?…I save and freeze to either make bread cubes or crumbs. If you are going to make rolls, buns, or baguettes then use the original recipe as the nutritional calculations below are for the slightly larger dough amounts.
Don’t despair if you do not have an electric knife but you will probably not be able to make a less than ½” cut the way I can. I would think on average and if cut with a good bread knife, you should be able to get 14-15 slices which is completely acceptable.
You can do all the same things with this slightly smaller loaf that can be done with the only slightly larger loaf so have at it and have fun with it.
DO NOT USE CARBQUIK-IT WILL NOT WORK.
Nutritionals are below the recipe.
- Equipment Needed:
- Large Cuisinart or other Large Food Processor
- Electric Knife
- Small Cutting Board
- 4” x 8” x 2 ½” Loaf Pan (Non-Stick)
If you use a larger loaf pan then your bread will be longer, not rise as high, and will be wider that the picture above.
Use for Stuffed Strawberry Cream Cheese French Toast and the dough for low carb carbalose bread 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.
To the left is Tara’s first time loaf and I think we should all give her a hand because it takes courage to make that first loaf and then…it’s Katy bar the door with what you can do with the basic dough after that. If you will just make 3 loaves of low carb carbalose bread, one for bread, one for croutons, and one for crumbs, I doubt you will ever want to be without them. Many other recipes are built around this basic recipe using more/less some of the same ingredients.

- 2 C Carbalose Flour
- 3½ T Wheat Gluten
- 3½ T Coconut Flour
- ¾ t Salt
- ¼ t Guar Gum
- ¼ t Xanthan Gum
- 3½ T Golden Flaxseed Meal***
- ¼ C Warm Water***
- 2 T+½ t Melted Coconut Oil
- 1 C Water + (Only If Needed)
- 1½ T Yeast
- ½ t Sugar
- 6 Drops Liquid Sucralose*
- Bloom yeast & sugar in 1 cup warm water for 10 minutes or until foamy.
- Add flaxseed to ¼ C warm water for 10 minutes. (It will become quite gelatinous)
- Put first 6 ingredients in processor and pulse to blend.
- Add flaxseed mixture to dry ingredients and pulse to blend.
- Add liquid Sucralose and 2 T coconut oil to bloomed yeast and with machine running add to dry ingredients.
- Run processor for at least 2 minutes and probably a little longer adding any additional water as needed 1 T at a time.
- 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.
- 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.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Take dough out of bowl and knead (very gently) until you are sure ALL air pockets are out.
- Form gently into loaf rolling so the seam is on the bottom, put into greased (remaining ½ 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 bit more in the oven.
- Bake 45 minutes.
- Rest the bread in the pan at least 10 minutes.
- Make sure bread sides are not sticking to pan, remove gently, put on wire rack, and cool completely.
- Slice bread with an electric knife.

- 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”.
- Slice size is equivalent to a normal slice of pretty much any other normal bread.
- ** 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.
- 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.

It took me many tries to get the original Carbalose Flour Bread
recipe just right and I paid nearly $700.00 to have it tested through Exova Laboratories so I know all the figures are correct. The figures below are only slightly off as this recipe uses a bit less ingredients than are listed in the original and I am not going to the trouble of changing them all.
