Low Carb, High Protein Cottage Cheese Bread Recipe: Ingredients:
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup egg white powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cottage cheese (low-fat or regular)
4 large egg whites
2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter
Optional: 1 tablespoon honey or a natural low-carb sweetener of your choice (if you prefer a touch of sweetness)
Optional toppings: sesame seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, egg white powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix the cottage cheese, egg whites, olive oil (or melted butter), and honey (or sweetener if using).
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly.
If desired, sprinkle sesame seeds, chia seeds, or flax seeds on top for added texture and flavor.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let the bread cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
