Breakfast Bread

Carbs Per Serving: 9g carbs total
Effort: Easy

1/4 cup protein powder
1/2 cup carbo-lite bake mix
1/4 cup flax seeds — ground into 1/2C meal
3 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons melted butter

How to Prepare:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a standard 8″ loaf pan (or an 8x8x2 cake pan) with cooking spray. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Beat eggs with a fork and blend in butter, water and sour cream. Stir into dry ingredients until just blended. Pour into prepared pan and bake: 30 minutes for square pan and 40 minutes for loaf pan. This bread is semi-sweet because the carbo-lite bake mix has splenda in it.
This bake mix is zero carb. 22 grams carbs; 11g fiber. The flax seeds provide almost all the fiber and is a source of insoluable fiber as I understand it. I would subtract 9 g from the loaf total carbs leaving a loaf w/ just 13 g carbs total. May add some cinnamon and vanilla extract next time for a more sweet/homestyle taste.  This only rose to the top of the loaf pan, so it’s not a big loaf. I’m also thinking that beating the whites and folding them in might increase the volume for the rise.
