Low-carb Microwave Bread

For many of us, bread is a staple of our diet - from sandwiches to toast, bread is always a likely feature in our daily meals. But for some people, they either can't eat bread, or won't eat bread. There are reasons to believe carbs can contribute to bloating and weight gain

 So if you want a quick, easy alternative to bread, look no further. This low-carb microwave bread is more eggy than bread, but is a great way of adding some variety to breakfast and lunch if you are avoiding bread or controlling your carbs. Easy to make, and ready in less than 5 minutes, the spongy texture soaks up butter, honey or jam.

Let's get to cooking!

Prep and cool time - 1 minute
Cook time - 2 minutes
Total time - 3 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, use a fork to mix the ingredients until very smooth.
  2. Using a spatula, transfer to a small pyrex bowl (mine measures 2 inches on the bottom and 4 inches at the top).
  3. Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Bread will puff up while "baking," then deflate. When done, it will look like a muffin. Make sure it appears set, otherwise microwave 30 more seconds (but 90 seconds should be enough, and overcooking can dry it up).
  4. Gently, with a small knife, loosen the bread edges and remove from the bowl onto a plate. Slice into two slices and top with your favorite toppings.
