Soft and quick pumpkin and almond bread for 62 calories a slice!

Well, great weather here is fairly rare but I was a little surprised when I looked out of the window today. Whaddya know, a wonderful clear blue sky and a beautiful, big sun was looking back at me. I ended up taking a walk to the gym and spend the rest of the day indoors baking. It’s a shame, I know, especially since nice weather is rather rare here as previously stated. However, I was in a great baking mood today and just had to try out a few new ingredients.

Bread items are often truly missed once someones goes down the gluten free road and if you’re heading down the low calorie road at the same time: bread becomes almost a myth. Although, if you search the internet long enough you might find some interesting ingredients that may help. I actually found a fiber flour that I just had to try. It’s lower in calories than regular flours and works fine as a substitute. I’ll explain more how to use this flour in another post.

Sooo.. the bread, yes. I was craving bread so I decided to make a nice healthy protein loaf. Don’t forget to check out the fantastic macros at the end of this post.

1/3 or 1 dl cup almond meal (40 g)
1 scoop vanilla whey (1/3 cup, 0,8 dl or 30 g)
1 large egg white (38 g)
1/2 heaping cup or 1 heaping dl rolled oats (50 g)
3 T Fiberfin fiber flour (sub it for any other flour if you can’t find a fiber powder) (20 g)
3 T unsweetened apple sauce
2/3 tsp baking soda
1 heaping T buckwheat flakes
1/3 cup or 0,8 dl low fat coconut milk (45 g)
1 egg
3/4 cup or 1,4 dl pumpkin puree (150 g)
A dash of salt

Preheat the oven to 340 F or 175 C. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients first in order to prevent lumps and then add all the wet ones. Pour the batter into a silicone mold, about 8-9×4-5 (20-25×8-10 cm) inch big (mine is looks like this one). Place the rack at the bottom of your oven and place your wonderful soon-to-be loaf at the very bottom of your preheated oven and wait for about 35 minutes. Voilá!
