One thing that I honestly don't miss on my low carb diet is bread. However, I do sometimes miss the usefullness of bread; that you can use it to hold other foods. Since I had some Trader Joe's unblanched almond flour in the freezer, I decided to make a loaf of this tasty bread that was created by my friend, Barbo. Check out her Barbo's Low Carb Kitchen forum. There is also a long thread about her bread recipe at Low Carb Friends. It's very simple to make and doesn't use any unusual ingredients. It reminds me of the dense German rye bread I used to eat at my Grandma's house when I was young. If you don't like caraway seeds, this recipe might not work well for you. I think it's the seeds that fool you into thinking this is rye bread.
For my lunch today, I made a little sandwich with this bread and some chicken salad that I made with the canned chicken that I bought at Aldi's. I probably won't buy the chicken again. It's edible but doesn't have much flavor and it bothers me that there is starch added. This was a 12 1/2 ounce can but there were only 7 1/2 ounces of actual meat after I drained off the water. I guess they're figuring that you'll be drinking the liquid when they put on the label that there are six 2-ounce servings per can. Although the sandwich looks large in the photo, it was actually a mini sandwich because the slices of bread are only about 3 1/2" x 2" and I sliced the loaf very thin. I get more slices that way and just enough bread to hold the chicken salad or some other filling.
