As anyone who has ever been on a low carb diet knows, the idea of not being able to consume bread is a HUGE issue. Here is a recipe for a QUICK FIX. Satisfying, good for you and I must say DELICIOUS!! Here is my recipe I adapted from this ONE MINUTE FLAX MUFFIN  recipe:

JEN'S YUMMY MICROWAVE PESTO BREAD: 2.15g net carbs (includes goat cheese spread)

1 Egg
1 T. Heavy Whipping Cream (optional, the consistency is better with it though)
1 heaping T. Pesto (I buy mine at Sam's Club since I use it often, the brand is Artisan Fresh)
2 T. shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. Milled Golden Flaxseed (you don't have to use Golden, but I prefer it's flavor)
1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 oz. Goat Cheese

In a 2 cup microwave safe glass container (i use a pyrex measuring cup) combine the wet ingredients.
Add the dry to the wet ingredients and mix until it is all incorporated.
Microwave for 1 minute 25 seconds until it is firm. (microwave times may vary)
It may look wet at first, but it dissipates upon standing. I then invert it onto a plate, slice & enjoy warm! I spread it with a bit of goat cheese for an AMAZINGLY gourmet flavor!

Total net/impact carbs are 2 for the entire loaf with an ounce of goat cheese to use as a spread. It is extremely filling. You could probably eat half and still feel full due to the fiber and protein levels.


1 egg ~ 0.5g net carbs
1 T. Heavy Whipping Cream - 0.2g net carbs
Pesto ~ 0.75 g net carbs
Mozzarella ~ 0.4g net carbs
Flax ~ 0g net carbs
Baking Powder ~ 0g net carbs
1 oz. goat cheese ~ 0.3g net carbs
