I don’t really love foods that are high in protein. I’ll eat meat because I need the nutrients it supplies me but I spent years being a vegetarian and I prefer fruit, vegetables, and grains to animal products. I’d much rather have toast or oatmeal (or donuts!) for breakfast and forgo the eggs. Give me a salad over a steak any day of the week.

So, it’s been a goal for me to create low carb copies of the foods I love. Like turning cinnamon raisin bread into low carb cinnamon bread with raisins.

I think this bread is best sliced and toasted. Coconut flour can give baked goods a dry texture in your mouth and toasting this low carb bread helps with that a lot. Plus toasting cinnamon bread always gives it more flavor!

  1. I’d absolutely love a slice or two of this raisin bread toasted w/butter. Perfection. I can already smell it….

    Reply
    • So good. 🙂

  2. What is the serving size and is this nutritional information correct ?

    Reply
    • The serving is the entire recipe (basically a bread in a mug) and yes the information is correct.

  3. Hi! I don’t have flaxmeal. What can I use instead? Thanks!

    Reply
    • You can just add more almond flour but the carbs may change.

  4. Can you use a whole egg instead of just the egg white? Or does it affect how the bread turns out?

    Reply
    • It changed the flavor and texture of the bread if you use the whole egg.

  5. I just made this. Is it suppose to rise ? Also it came out extremely dry. Am I missing something ?

    Reply
    • It does rise like a quick bread. It’s not more dry than other low carb quick breads but it’s not like a high carb quick bread either.

    Can you use a whole egg?

    Reply
    • No. The flavor becomes too “eggy”

  7. I don’t know what I am missing but I plugged the ingredients into the recipe calculator on SparkPeople and everything came out pretty much the same EXCEPT the sodium was twice as high because you did not specify unsalted butter. But the carbs came out much different… 13.2 total carbs. Fiber was the same but that makes the Net carbs about 7 – not 4.3. Trying it now anyway

    OK, so I tried it. Not at all dry. Actually pretty moist when it came out of the microwave but using a tall mug was totally unnecessary. The mug was 5 inches tall and the bread rose to only an inch and a half (and yes all my ingredients were fresh). Also not nearly enough cinnamon flavor. I do like the texture so I will tweak this by doubling the cinnamon and using a small jelly jar next time instead of a mug..Definitely worth working with even tho the net carbs and sodium are higher than specified.

    • Ok… I don’t know why it didn’t rise for you? Usually it rises to the top and then sinks some. I redid the nutritional info with my new calculator and it’s basically the same but I think your calculator counted the carbs in the xylitol/erythritol sweetener which usually isn’t counted since it doesnt affect blood sugars.

    • 5 stars
      As for the net carbs, you were right on the money! When I re=calculated it using erythritol with zero net carbs it came down to just under 4 net carbs. Just made a double batch – doubled the cinnamon and upped the baking powder by 25% and hit the jackpot! I AM IN CINNAMON BREAD HEAVEN!

    • Yep – you have to watch for that. I leave those counts out because I think it’s too confusing

    Me again…I had the other half this morning after letting it sit over night. EVEN BETTER! (But it still needs more cinnamon). This is now my go to lo-carb bread! I’m going to try a larger loaf and see if it works. Fingers crossed! The best lo-carb bread recipe I have tried yet – even without the cinnamon! Texture and taste so much like a multi-grain bread. Thanks so much for this recipe!!!

    • 🙂 great!

  10. I don’t have a microwave. How would I make this in the oven? Thanks!

    Reply
    • Bake it in a custard cup or muffin tin at 375 for maybe 10 to 12 minutes?

  11. 4 stars
    I was told to turn your breadpan sideways upon taking out of oven to rest until cool and then turn pan right side up, shouldn’t sink. Bread should stay fully rised

    Reply
    • That’s true..but thats with yeast breads

  12. Has anyone ever made this recipe in a larger amount? I’d like to try it in a loaf pan but I dont have the math skills to figure the measurements correctly.
