Bread Lovers Of Saigon

My German side is coming finally out. It’s Time for BROTZEIT.

I’m so beyond excited to share with you my absolute favourite recipe. Doesn’t matter if you are on a Keto Diet or Low Carb Diet, you can have it and enjoy it. It’s gluten free & flour free. My dad would say, as an old school German baker, “that doesn’t sound like a real bread”. But that’s why I love this recipe so much because you wouldn’t notice the difference from ‘real’ bread on a taste or texture basis. Another benefit is it’s high in fibre, because I’m creating the dough with psyllium husk powder & chia seed powder to keep everything together.

Just make sure when it comes fresh out of the oven you don’t eat the whole bread like me J


Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup arrowroot flour (or arrowroot powder)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1tsp sea salt
  • 2tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2tbsp chia seed powder
  • 2 tbsppsyllium husk powder

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 1/4cup filtered water
  • 2tsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg


1 — In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour and sea salt. ( feel free to add turmeric powder or cinnamon powder, if you wanna play with different flavours).

2 — Heat water to 105-110F. add 2 tsp of maple syrup and stir. Add the yeast and let stand for 10 minutes. The yeast should bubble or foam- if it doesnt start over.

3 — Stir the chia seed powder and psyllium powder into the yeast mixture. Let stand 1minute to thicken, then whisk.

4 — Pour thickened yeast-chia mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until thick and fully combined. The dough will be slightly sticky, but workable. Knead for 1 minute.

5 — Put kneaded dough back into the bowl, cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm spot to rise for an hour.

6 — Preheat the oven to 425F. Place a pizza stone or cooking sheet in oven to preheat.

7 — Place dough on a square of parchment paper or a cutting board. Dip your hands in water and shaped into a nice rounded shape. Brush with egg wash, if desired. Use a serrated knife to cut a tic-tac-toe pattern on the top.

8 — Slide the prepared dough onto the preheated stone or cooking sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes. PLEASE NOTE: baking time can vary.

9 — Let cool completely on a wire rack. When completely cool, slice and serve or store in an airtight container. To re-crisp crust, toast or reheat in a 375F oven for 5-10minutes.

Now I can have sandwich on the go for lunch or dinner. Or when I travel and I wanna stay on track. Especially when you travel to China 😉 otherwise try to eat healthier options when you are on the run.

Just create your own dream sandwich. Mine is a mix between cream cheese, avocado mash, smoked salmon (or cold meat slices), radish/cucumber & a lot of lettuce to make it even crunchier.

Feel free to share your favourite sandwich. I’m post some more super healthy bread recipes soon for all the bread lovers like me. Stay tuned.
