Here I would like to show you my Wholemeal Bread Low Carb Recipe.

It is a super tasty bread for ALL, because it contains few carbohydrates, many fibers, vitamins and is gluten-free.

Why low carb? Low carbohydrates and then hardly processed carbohydrates help your body to a normal regulation of insulin production.

Good fats from nuts, vitamins and fiber from vegetables help your intestines.

This also helps you lose weight!Why gluten-free?

Two arguments:

As a healthy person, it helps you to limit your intake of gluten-containing foods, because most people consume a lot of them.

If you are affected by coeliac disease, you will be happy and grateful for a homemade bread instead of the usual industrial products based on corn flour.

4. Vegetables as Power Ingredient for Healthy Wholemeal Bread

Vegetables are healthy, everyone agrees…

That’s why I supplement the bread with lots of vegetables!

You can grate the vegetables by hand or prepare them with your kitchen utensil.

Thin strips are ideal for the ingredients to combine well in the bread dough!

Grating vegetables by hand, that is your fitness program in the kitchen

Fit Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
Zucchini, parsnips, parsley root and carrots complete the Low Carb bread with many vitamins and fiber.

5. Low Carb Whole Grain Bread Tips

Use hazelnuts, macadamia or cashew nuts as additional nuts.

Please increase the amount of water slightly.

The same applies to the selection of grains:

Sesame seeds or pumpkin seeds also fit wonderfully into the dough.

I don’t recommend taking too many of the pumpkin seeds, as they are slightly bitter.

Remember to increase the amount of water slightly.

I always like to vary with the herbs and spices and experiment a lot.

Choose your personal spice ingredients that suit your taste.

6. Delicious Bread Toppings

For your great homemade wholemeal bread I recommend you to make my spreads yourself.

The recipe herb cream cheese would be a good complement to this bread.
