    I'll let you know once I've given it a try, but it sounds as if it will be great as long as I don't eat too much of it :)

    I think I will have to give this a try too! I'm on the Burgen bread at the moment, but generally doing salads for lunch at the moment, so this should be a nice change! Just need to pick up some ingredients.

    Glad it's I'm cups too, I prefer cooking this way :)

    Just to let you know, I tried this recipe out, and it's the best low carb bread recipe I've ever tried, and I've tried a lot lol. It looks, feels and tastes like bread. I didn't have wheat bran in mine, so I think that might have thrown off the flavour a bit (I need to nip out and buy some for next time), but I had buttery toast for breakfast this morning and it tasted great.

    I love this recipe. Thanks for sharing it :D

    That's great to hear, Claire! Glad I wasn't deluding myself!

    Sorry for the late reply, Hana, I must have forgotten to reply. I've given a link at the top if the thread for the cheapest online place to buy wheat gluten.

    hi,

    This might seem a silly question but is Soy flour the same as Soya flour?

    Gonna try this at the weekend once I get some of the above flour.

    Thanks

    Sam,

    What bread maker do you recommend? Are they huge great things?

    Thanks for the recipe; my wife is into making bread (by hand) so I might buy her a breadmaker and then force her to make this.

    The breadmaker I use is a Russell Hobbs 18036. I'm not 100% certain that Soya flour is Soy flour, but I reckon it is - ground up soya beans.

    Well I did some looking and it seems that Soy is American for Soya.

    But I just wanna say Sam YOU ARE A GOD!!!!! This is the best and lowest carb bread I have tried! Its sooo nice. Im gonna make all the time!!!!!

    The texture is just right, the flavour is unusual but nothing I couldn't get used to. Might try to add some herbs and maybe sundried tomatoes to future batches!

    Thanks, Love it! I can have sandwiches again!

    Hi Sam JB, I do not have a breadmaker, do you really think that I would need one to make this?, Deb

    I expect you could make it without a breadmaker, I don't see why not. I've never tried as it's too much of a faff for me! I prefer to chuck everything in the breadmaker and press Go!

    Thanks SamJB, has anyone else made this bread by hand, without a breadmaker?

    I am going to give this a go Sam. Thanks for the recipe.

    The only thing I miss is bread. I always gave a slice of Burgen for brekkie but don't eat spuds or pasta so I am naturally a fairly low carber.

    I also live on my own and large amounts may go uneaten... I am assuming you can freeze this bread?

    And one more thing...

    Could I leave the Linseeds whole as in Burgen bread?

    I haven't yet got one of those telly chef whizzy things.....

    Yes I have used whole linseeds. You can get ground ones from Holland and Barrett. I've not tried freezing it, but it doesn't keep well compared to supermarket bread. I'd say no more than a week to ten days in the fridge.

    It is quite similar in taste to the Burgen bread.

    I made a peanut butter and (reduced sugar)jam sandwich last night. Never tried one before but it was so nice I may just have another tonight!!! I used one slice of this bread cut in half. Tasty little treat.

    Great idea Lenny. I'm really pleased there's been such a positive reaction by everyone. The main question is, does it affect your BGs?

    Hi SamJB, I have just purchased a bread-maker in order to make this recipe. I have ordered Vital Wheat Gluten from hon4est-to-goodness as you suggested but where is the cheapest place to but Soya Flour and Wheat Bran please?. Someone wrote that they had bought wheat bran from Tesco's but when I looked online I couldn't find it, thanks to all, Deb
