Keto Flaxseed Miracle Rising Bread


What about the honey?

The honey is used to activate the yeast. Yeast eats the honey (sugar content), metabolizes it and then turns into gas which allows the dough to RISE. You do not actually consume the honey itself. But for kicks, we went ahead and included the nutrition facts in case you wanted to know how much it’s actually worth if hypothetically your body actually consumed it.

But there is Oat Fiber!

-Oat fiber is NOT the same oat FLOUR. It is not ground oats. It is made from the fibrous husks of the oat; not the grain. It is pure insoluble fiber. –

-Insoluble fibers like oat fiber do not dissolve in water in the body and therefore are not broken down in the digestive tract.

-Does not provide nutrition benefits when eaten hence it being ZERO CALORIES.

-Minus the fiber out from your carb count if you are tracking your macros. –Helps regulate your digestive system.

What is Vital Wheat Gluten?

-It is a gluten protein isolate hence it being low carb and keto friendly.

-It is the protein inside wheat. In other words, the wheat is processed to REMOVE all of its components like the STARCH leaving only the GLUTEN.

-High in Protein

-Great source of selenium and iron

-Low in carbs and fat -Soy free

-Used to make Seitan used for Vegan meat substitutes

-Not advised for people with gluten allergies/sensitivity or who have celiac disease

So back to the question, is this KETO? In our opinion, it definitely is mainly due to its low carb content per slice and works for people tracking their macros. However, if you are sensitive to gluten, we have other bread recipes that might work better for you. We’ve had a lot of this bread and it never kicks us out of ketosis and doesn’t stall our weightloss. Only you can decide what is BEST FOR YOU.

    A simple and delicious dessert filled with vibrant colors that will leave you wanting more!
  • 1/2 cup Oat Fiber
  • 2/3 cup Flaxseed (grind the seeds if you want a flax meal consistency)
  • 1 1/4 cup Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Xantham Gum (optional if you like a little gummy elastic texture found in some traditional breads)
  • 1 packet of Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Softened Butter
  • 1 tbsp of Monkfruit Sweetener for flavor (optional if you like a hint of sweetness like traditional bread)


  1. Mix the dry ingredients (oat fiber, flaxseed, vital wheat gluten, salt, xantham gum) together and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 cup of water between 120 F to 130 F.
  3. Once desired temperature of the water is reached, add 1 packet of Active Dry Yeast.
  4. Add 1 tsp of honey to feed the yeast and mix (you will not be consuming this). The yeast is activated once the mixture begins to bubble. Set aside.
  5. Beat 2 eggs then set aside.
  6. Pour the yeast mixture and eggs into your electric mixing bowl.
  7. Add the butter and dry ingredients to the mixing bowl as well.
  8. Using the mixing paddle, mix at medium speed until well combined.
  9. Swap out the paddle with the dough hook attachment and knead at medium speed for 5 minutes until a dough starts to form. You may need to pause and roll the dough into a ball with a spatula a few times to help the dough form. Knead for another minute at high speed.
  10. Spray your bread pan with avocado oil or coat with butter/ghee/olive oil. Place the dough into the bread pan.
  11. Spray saran wrap with avocado oil and cover the bread pan.
  12. Fill up a bowl with water half way and heat in a microwave for 3 minutes.
  13. Quickly place the bread pan into the microwave along with the water filled bowl and close immediately. This will prove the bread (rising process). Do not open the microwave for 2 hrs to allow enough time to rise.
  14. After 2 hrs, preheat your oven to 375 F.
  15. If the bread has risen successfully, remove the plastic wrap and bake for 25 minutes or once the bread is cooked in the center. (run the toothpick test)
  16. Once cooked, let the loaf completely cool for about an hour and then slice your bread.
