1 pkg dry yeast -- (Red Star for Bread Machines is good) 1/2 tsp sugar -- (so the yeast has something to eat) 1 1/8 cup water -- (warm but not too hot, or you'll kill the yeast - baby bottle warm) 3 tbsp olive oil 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 tbsp artificial sweetener -- (Sugar Twin works really well) 1 cup Bob's Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten Flour 1/4 cup oat flour 3/4 cup soy flour 1/4 cup flax seed meal 1/4 cup oat bran -- coarse unprocessed Pour yeast into bottom of bread machine pan; add sugar and water, stir and let sit (this is a yeast starter to see if your yeast is alive, if it's not bubbling, it's dead and you can replace it without wasting all of the other ingredients). In the meantime mix all other dry ingredients together in a bowl Add oil to bread machine pan Add mixed dry ingredients Set your machine to the basic cycle (mine is a Panasonic and that's four hours) and let 'er rip. Cool on a rack and enjoy As for carbs, here's the low-down: The whole loaf this way has 72.5 carbs and 24.25 g's fiber, subtract the fiber and you end up with 2.99 carbs per slice (16 servings per bread). Now if you want to cut those carbs a little, then substitute the oat flour with soy flour and the bran with flax seed meal. That will give you a loaf that has 64 carbs with 24 g's fiber, and that works out to 2.5 carbs per slice - now I won't be held responsible if your slice has the thickness of two. Now, for those of you who can't do soy, substitute the soy with oat flour and use only the flax seed meal (or the bran if you want to). The loaf with all flax will have 72.5 carbs and 14.75 g's fiber. That works out to 3.6 carbs per slice (16 servings). If it should happen that your bread does not rise as well on the 1 1/8 cup of water, add an 1/8 cup at a time to see if it gets better - but don't add more than up to a 1/4 cup or your bread will get soggy. >
