Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine yeast, inulin and water, stir and set aside for later
  • If you have whole chia, mill 20 seconds / speed 9 / mc on, tap lid to knock chia down (skip milling if using pre-ground chia flour)
  • Add mozzarella and almond meal, chop 40 seconds / speed 6 / mc on
  • Add 2 eggs, cook 3 minutes / 50 degrees / speed 2 / mc off
  • Add remaining eggs, butter, baking powder, yeast/inulin mixture, whey protein isolate, sweetener and spices, mix 1 minute / speed 4 / mc on
  • Scrape down, mix 30 seconds / speed 4 / mc on
  • Transfer to a large lined loaf tin or silicon mould
  • Remove all dough, flick the blades clean 1 second / speed 8 / mc on and add any extra mixture to the tin
  • Set aside in the warmest room in the house for 1 hour
  • Turn your oven on now to 170C, and once its reached temperature the loaf is ready to go in
  • Bake approx. 1 hour 15 minutes until risen, golden brown and springs back, when you think it’s ready, turn the oven temperature off but leave the fan running and door ajar as slower cooling will result in less chance of the loaf deflating
  • Store in the fridge in a container up to 6 days or frozen up to 3 months, reheats nicely 15 seconds in the microwave or toasted

Anyone made this successfully with coconut flour, using the 1/4 of almond flour and extra egg adaption but not rising well. Thanks in advance 😀

Ema says:

Hi,
Could egg white powder or Beef protein isolate be substituted in as an alternative for the whey protein isolate?

Many thanks in advance

Thermo Foodie and The Chef says:

Good question! Ive never worked with beef protein isolate before, is this similar to collagen? I would imagine both of your suggestions would work as both are almost pure protein like the whey isolate, but do let us know how you go!

Libby Stanley says:

I loved the smell of it cooking, but a little disappointed in taste – it’s a little dry (I’ve double checked I did everything to recipe). I’m trying to think how to adapt to my taste a little.

Thermo Foodie and The Chef says:

Oh Im sorry to hear this, try lowering the oven temp if you bake it again, hopefully it was still good with lashings of butter!
