This bread. THIS BREAD! I cannot get enough this bread! Easy! Delicious! Nutritious! Filling! I may run out of exclamation points before this post is finished!!!
It is my 2-ingredient Flax Sandwich Bread. Flaxseed meal is the star of the show, acting as flour, eggs, and oil, all in one fell swoop.
- Vegan (egg-free, dairy-free)
- Easy to make
- 2 ingredients (plus water and optional salt)
Ingredients for the Bread
The exact amounts of each ingredient are indicated in the recipe card at the end of the post.
You will also need some regular tap water. I like to add some salt, but it is entirely optional.
Best Type of Flaxseed Meal for the Bread
Whichever option you choose, just make sure the flaxseed meal is fresh. The high contention of natural oils in flax can go rancid (and fishy-tasting) if not stored properly. Flaxseed meal should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer once the bag is opened.
Important: Do Not Use Defatted Flaxseed Meal. If the package of flaxseed meal does not state that it is defatted, look at the nutrition label on the back of the package. If the calories for the flaxseed meal are zero, it is defatted meal.
How to Make 2-Ingredient Flax Sandwich Bread
Note that the complete directions are also in the recipe card below.
Step One: Preheat the Oven and Prepare Baking Pan
Step Two: Grind the Flaxseed Meal into a Fine Flour
This is a very important step. Using a blender or a clean coffee mill, grind the flaxseed meal into a very fine flour. This affects how the texture and rise of the bread.
Step Three: Combine the Dry Ingredients in a Bowl
Step Four: Add the Water
Next, stir in water. It will come together together into a thick, moist dough.
It may not look like enough water, but it is. Do not add more water. The dough will appear somewhat gooey.
Step Five: Shape the Loaves
Divide the dough into three equal portions. With damp hands, shape each into a baguette shape that is about 8-inches (20 cm) long . Flatten slightly with hands.
Make 4 deep diagonal slashes through the top of each loaf.
Step Six: Bake
Bake the loaves in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes until risen and puffed, and the slashes on top have opened out.
Step Seven: Cool the Bread
Transfer the loaves to a cooling rack and cool completely.
Hello, beautiful bread.
This bread goes with…everything. Really.
Is this a high-rising bread?
No, but it is light and fluffy, not gooey.
How do I use the bread for sandwiches?
Slice the bread lengthwise for wonderful sandwiches. One third, or half of one loaf, sliced lengthwise is perfect for a sandwich.
I liked the original version of this bread. Is it still available?
Yes! It is in the notes of the recipe card.
