    That's funny, Patrick, because I was just thinking how easy these recipes are. I don't find them complicated at all - at least, not compared to other low-carb recipe sites. Maybe it's just a matter of what kind of recipes we've both looked at.

    These are just lovely. I've made 3 batches this weekend and followed the recipe just as written. I, too, was a little confused about the shaping instructions and just pressed the batter into a sheet pan because the photo looks like the bread was cut into squares. These are great with pate, avocado, smoked fish, egg salad--you name it. My friend, who can eat anything he likes and stay amazingly fit and trim, raided my stash of these and loves them (hence the 3 batches) even though he can eat carbs until the cows come home. I cut them in squares and keep them in the freezer and pop them in the toaster to thaw and toast lightly. Oh, and by the way, if you're having trouble finding psyllium, the laxative Metamucil is psyllium, just make sure you buy the plain, unflavored and unsweetened kind (don't think the orange flavor would be very good in this!) Trader Joe's also carries psyllium.

    I just made 4 of these in a cupcake pan. And used paper cupcake liners just like I would for a cupcakes. It baked up nice for me. And it was easy to handle and freeze that way.

    I've made those oopsy rolls and really didn't like them as they tasted too "eggy" I've also made the bread with almond flour but had to throw it out as I didn't like the texture, very heavy and dense. What would the consistency of this quick bread compare with and taste like?

    Hi Barb!
    I'm sorry about that. This bread will resemble the loaf of bread made with almond flour I'm afraid. But keep you're eyes open because we have a new bread recipe coming soon that tastes absolutely wonderful and has a similar texture as ordinary bread. I hope you'll like that one!

    It would be wonderful if the recipes had videos! I find it hard to follow everything correctly by just text. Anyone recommend a good youtube channel? Or a vídeo with this type of bread?

    Hi phill!

    We would love to make videos of how to prepare our recipes someday! I´ve put a link to a video of how to make this bread just below the instructions.
    Good luck!

    No I disagree. Vegan's do not survive well. I can't tell you how many of the people I know who are strict vegetarian, or vegan and who have early onset Alzheimer's. Not a good way to go. And as to children brought up on strict vegan diets... Recent stories out of Italy tell the story all too well. Children are stunted and often die on strict vegan diets. One couple in question lost custody of their children...

    I just made this bread. My father is in stage 4 kidney failure and cannot have the almond flour. So, I roughly ground some macadamia nuts and used them. They are a bit oilier than almond flour, so I was not sure, making this for the first time, what the result would be. I did this flatbread style- pressing the dough out on parchment. Then I scored through the dough to divide the servings before baking. The end result: One of the best ever low-carb breads I have ever enjoyed. This is a terrific and very easy recipe.
    Thank you for your wonderful recipes, the print feature, and photo included in print recipes. Love your site. Wishing my bank did not put the kabosh on allowing us to use our visa for any foreign billed purchases, or I would definitely become a member.

    It's me again. Just wanted to add that I made another batch of this bread. In an effort to cut the potassium down further for my dad, I omitted the nut flour and used ground pork rinds. I also omitted the salt, as pork rinds were already salted. The dough texture was slightly more crumbly, but it pressed together okay. I pressed it all into a rectangle and scored it into individual servings. I baked it as directed and then when I took it from the oven I broke the servings apart and cooled them on a rack. Not only does using the pork rinds cut the potassium down, but it further reduces the carbs. I wanted to share this in case anyone else was wondering about similar substitutions.

    I've made some recipes from your website and I'm very happy with the results, you are helping me and my sister a lot in our low carb new way of live.
    Today I've tried this one and it has become a total success, easy, quick and delicious.
    I have a little complain, though, I absolutely prefer measurements in grams, for baking accourance, even for liquids.
    It is possible to get this? I hope so... you are a great Team!

    Can you please make a loaf without awful husk it's ruined all my bread....all binned I paid a lot for it and it's purple muck.

    I'd love to mske a nice loaf

    This is a really nice alternative to bread. I need to make it into a loaf shape next time so it's easier to slice/ toast. Not much taste, mainly seeds but texture is really good.

    I'm confused... The recipe ingredients use "crème fraiche" and beneath it says "sour creme", which one should I use? Also, what is cider vinegar? Is that apple cider vinegar? Thank you for helping me out.
