This less than 10-ingredient Easy To Make Low-Carb Flaxseed Bread Machine Recipe includes baking powder and a touch of active dry yeast to help create the lightest texture for this recipe without gluten or eggs. 

I recently developed many new bread recipes for my first printed cookbook. Even after creating multiple quick breads, yeasted breads, and sourdough breads, I felt compelled to share one more as a bonus recipe. Enjoy this low-carb, gluten-free, grain-free, plant-based/vegan bread recipe with gorgeous, nutritious seeds!

Developing a low-carb bread recipe has been on my to-do list for a while now. I wondered if creating a recipe without gluten-free flours and starches, or eggs would work well in a bread machine, and it did.

The version I’m sharing is fabulous! It took some tinkering with the ingredients, especially the water, but what also helped was baking this bread recipe for longer.

This recipe includes ingredients such as psyllium husk and flaxseed, which absorb a lot of water. Even though the dough mixture might look like it needs more water—it doesn’t. Please follow the recipe card included below.

Ingredients

Scale

First Layer Wet Ingredients

  • 360 g (360 ml/1-1/2 cups) warm 110°F water
  • 25 g (1/3 cup) whole psyllium husk
  • 1.5 g (1/2 tsp) GF active dry yeast (optional)

Second Layer Dry Ingredients

  • 160 g (1 cup) whole flaxseed
  • 100 g (3/4 cup) raw pumpkin seeds
  • 100 g (1 cup) superfine almond flour (see Allergen Note)
  • 14 g (1 tbsp) GF baking powder
  • 14 g (2 tbsps) coconut flour 
    (OR 14 g (1 heaping tbsp) organic hemp seeds)
  • 1.5 g (1/4 tsp) fine sea salt

Topping (optional)

  • 10 g (1 tbsp) whole flaxseed

Instructions

  1. Insert the mixing paddle into the bread machine pan. 
  2. Combine and whisk the warm water, whole psyllium husk, and active dry yeast in the bread machine pan.
  3. Grind the flaxseed and pumpkin seeds into fine flour in a small blender and transfer to a medium bowl. Add the almond flour, GF baking powder, coconut flour (or hemp seeds), and sea salt. Whisk together to combine and break up any clumps. Transfer over the first layer wet ingredients in the bread pan. 
  4. Insert the bread pan into the bread machine and select the RAW DOUGH setting (or any other setting) to mix for 5 minutes. Press START to begin mixing, and with a silicone spatula, help the dry ingredients combine. STOP the machine, remove the mixing paddle (if possible) and shape the dough with the spatula. Top with a sprinkle of whole flaxseed and set the BAKE cycle for 1 hour and 20 minutes (1:20). Or bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, and once done, set the BAKE cycle again for another 10 minutes. Keep the lid closed during the baking time.
  5. Once the baking cycle is done, use a digital food thermometer with a probe to check if it’s ready. Once fully baked, the internal temperature of the bread will reach 210°F (99°C).  
  6. When the bread is ready, take out the pan from the bread machine and place it upright on a heat-proof surface. Cool the bread in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the loaf from the pan and finish cooling on a wire rack. Slice and enjoy!

Notes

Allergen Note: If allergic to almonds, consider replacing the almond flour by weight (grams) with tiger nut flour* or other freshly milled seed or nut flour. *Tiger nuts are small tubers. Note that I haven’t tested these alternatives yet.

Tip 1: For precision, weighing the ingredients (even the liquids) with a digital kitchen scale is recommended for this bread recipe.

Tip 2: The fibre and protein-rich ingredients absorb a lot of water. Don’t add more water (even if tempted), as the bread won’t bake properly.

More Gluten-Free Bread Machine Recipes

I’ve learned a whole lot since my first bread machine recipe. In that recipe post, I suggested only baking the recipe in the bread machine because I hadn’t experimented with the settings enough to know what else I could try. 

For detailed and more up-to-date instructions, there’s a similar recipe in the Gluten-Free, No Eggs or Dairy Bread Machine Cookbook (Most Delicious Hemp Bread, page 37). 

I also tested a bread machine recipe with Gluten-Free Caputo Flour (NOT WHEAT-FREE). You can see the results in this video. It was interesting to try, but it’s not a low-carb product.

  1. How many calories and carbs are in each slice?
    Thanks.

    • Hi Wendy! I used an online nutrition calculator to create the approx. nutrition facts for this bread recipe. A loaf makes about 12 slices and with the recipe prepared as listed each slice is about 150 calories. It’s a high-protein (hence more calories and healthier fats) and fibre-rich bread recipe. I’ll be posting a sourdough version soon!
