Low-Carb Wheat Bread

I finally managed to come up with a satisfying recipe using low-carb flour making bread in the bread machine. The key is to add oat or wheat bran, and wheat gluten so that the bread rises more. This is a basic bread recipe; it can easily be made into a sweet bread or walnut or sunflower seed bread.

Low-carb Basic Wheat Bread

1/3 cup lf milk
3/4-1 cup warm water
3 TB eggbeaters
1 cup carbalose flour
1/4 cup resistant wheat starch
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup wheat gluten
1 TB sugar
1 TB rapid rise yeast for breadmachines
1 ts salt substitute (like Morton salt substitute)

Place all flours in a bowl, and stir well. Add the liquid ingredients first in the breadmachine; then, add the flour mix. Third, make a small dip in the flour, add the sugar and yeast. Sprinkle the salt substitute outside of the sugar/yeast layer. Use firm bread setting with normal crust. A few hours later, voila, low-carb bread fresh out of the (breadmachine) oven!
