Banting Bread

So, I was on a bread kick today. I made Maria's amazing bread - it was okay. It rose beautifully in the oven and then collapsed in the middle when I took it out. I also got lazy and didn't measure my ingredients; it was just slightly holey and gummy, but definitely edible. I used NOW brand psyllium husk because that is what I had. Here's the pic, one of the loaf and a slice with peanut butter...

Then I tried Keto King’s Banting bread…
Oh my! I think I hit the jackpot with this one!
Of course, I had to tweak. I’m not that keen on seeds in and on my bread, so instead, I made it as a rosemary, thyme, and sage loaf.
I didn’t have fresh herbs so I used dried. I left out the almonds, but kept the walnuts and I added ¼ cup of wheat bran and 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed. I also increased the baking powder to 1 ½ tsp and added ¼ tsp baking soda.
This bread had a great texture and taste. Very much like a wheat bread.
The only disappointment is that it didn’t rise much. One of the reasons might be that I only have a 9x5 loaf pan and it calls for an 8x4. I also think I won’t bother with the baking soda next time. My thought was that the acidity of the yogurt would help the rise with the baking soda.
Still…it’s the best LC bread I’ve tasted by far!
Here is a pic…

I think I might just get an 8x4 inch loaf pan. A lot of recipes call for that size.

Yum, looks great. I hadn't heard of "banting bread" before. I actually like the holes, that's what one strives for in artisan loaves.

It looks wonderful. With all the tweaks you made, I think you can claim ownership of the recipe,
