Low Carb Bread
Makes two loaves.

3 cups warm water
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
4 cups Bob's Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten Flour *
1 whole egg, beaten
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Splenda (sucralose) **
Substitutions:
*or another gluten wheat flour
**or 2 tbsp sugar


Combine warm water and yeast. After yeast dissolves (3 to 5 minutes), beat in 2 cups gluten flour. Let mixture rise in a warm place until light and foamy (about 60-90 minutes).

In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, olive oil, salt, and Splenda. Beat in about 2 cups gluten flour. Use ONLY enough flour to make a dough that will knead well. Mix in yeast/flour mixture.

Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Knead bread for approximately 10 minutes (because of the gluten, it will become difficult to knead in about half that time).

Let rise until doubled (about 1 hour) in bulk. Shape into 2 loaves. Place in loaf pan or on baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350F (180C) oven about 1 hour.

NOTE: Check your bread machine manual for instructions on making this bread by machine.
