This is a low carb, high fiber, protein dense “bread” recipe. Calorically it is similar to regular bread (maybe a touch higher); however, it is less than 1 carbohydrate per serving, is completely sugar free, and has as much fiber as 2 ½ cups of broccoli. In addition, it has as much high quality protein as 2 large eggs and is full of omega 3. The “bread” alone should be quite filling.
Add the chia seeds to the water and let it stand for 15 minutes.
Add the eggs and pumpkin to the chia mixture and mix well.
In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. I found a blender with a dough attachment and setting worked best.
Spray your baking container with non-stick butter flavored spray.
Once everything is incorporated pour the mixture into said baking container (I used a mini 6 pie/tart pan, but a muffin top pan would work well too).
Bake for 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
