3-minute miracle bread

Not sure about you, but I love Instagram.  Believe it or not, about 1.5 months ago, I finally realized why people use hash tags.  I can simply click on “#whatveganseat” and see what other vegans are eating!  It has been nothing but inspiring for me in planning our meals; I am truly grateful and now even more obsessed with food (and fitness).

On Instagram, Caitlin Cooper, aka, @caitlinslife, creator of www.transformyourfood.com grabbed my eye with her “3 minute microwave English muffin”.  Not having the exact ingredients, I tried her recipe, but it didn’t work; so I bought the ingredients to make this muffin while putting my little spin on it.  After vegan-izing and testing this recipe about 5-6 times, I came up with my own version of her English muffin, which I now just call bread.

You have free rein to do what you please with this bread.  Either enjoy it as an English muffin, 2 slices of bread, or a hamburger bun.  I want to warn you first, though, that this is Not a light recipe.  If all you had eaten for the day was a breakfast green smoothie, a salad for lunch, and some fruit, I think this would be a good source of good fat and protein.  Since it is high in protein and takes longer to digest (takes up a lot of your energy to digest), I recommend only eating this for dinner (unless you don’t mind feeling tired throughout your day).

Since I don’t like buying whole loaves of bread, this super simple 3 minute bread recipe is a great solution for when we need bread in a pinch, and for when we want to eat a veggie burger and only need 2 hamburger buns!

Here’s the recipe!

 

3-Minute Miracle Bread

Serving size: One bread=2 slices

Ingredients

1/2 C almond flour

2 tsp coconut flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

4 Tbsp flaxseed egg (recipe in my blog)

<1 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)/sunflower oil/grapeseed oil (just a smidge less than 1 Tbsp)

1 drop stevia

pinch of sea salt

 

Directions

In a small bowl, add dry ingredients.  In center of the bowl, create a well and add wet ingredients.  With a fork, incorporate the dry into the wet ingredients. Mix well.  Spray a large ramekin (or small bowl, or pyrex glass tupperware bowl) with coconut or non-stick cooking spray.  Spoon the batter into the bowl and flatten with wet fingers, pressing down on the batter to remove holes and to even it out.  Microwave for 2.5 minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave. If it feels too gooey, microwave an additional 20 seconds.

The bowl will be hot, so use an oven mitt or kitchen towel to remove from the microwave.  Flip bowl over onto a plate or cutting board. Slice with a little serrated knife.

Either toast in a toaster, toaster oven, or on a pan or griddle with a little oil.

    This looks great, I just need to think of another way to bake it because I am without a microwave.

  4. Hi Amanda,

    I should update my post. You can actually bake the bread in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F for about 12-15 minutes. I have yet to do this, but some of my readers have done so and it supposedly works out well. I will have to re-test this recipe so I can get my own approximate baking time. Most of my readers also “LOVE” my miracle oat-flax bread. I make it all the time, and I even cook the bread in my panini maker! I hope you try baking the bread and enjoy it!

    All The Best,

    Yvonne

    Just wondering if anyone has fugured out the calories in one of these bad boys or the oat flour version.

  6. Hi Lucia,

    Unfortunately, I do not count calories, protein, calcium, or anything. I just try to follow Kimberly Snyder’s Beauty Detox plan– she says that foods are complex and just counting numbers isn’t Beauty Detox. However, if you are really concerned about calories, I’m sure you can find out the calorie count using the recipe. When I used to be obsessed with numbers and counting calories, I developed a gauge for what can be higher in calories and fat. What I can tell you from what I intuitively can guess is that the 2-minute oat-flax bread has less calories and fat than the 3-minute bread with almond flour. Hope that helps! :) <3

    All The Best,

    Yvonne
