Tuna sandwich in keto bread!

I am immensely pleased with myself today for finally zeroing in on a bread which is healthy, scrumptious, gluten free and absolutely keto friendly!!!

I love bread and when I switched to ketogenic diet I had to part ways with regular bread… well it wasn’t easy would be an understatement!!

So I have been looking for a recipe which would stop teh crazy cravings once and for all and better still pull me right out of self pity to the feeling of a glorious winner!!

Found this wonderful recipe here:


Only change I made for lack of enough amount of flax flour is; i added equal amounts of flax seed flour and almond flour to make half cup of teh total mixture.

Replaced two table spoons of coconut milk with almond milk.

Turned out great!

The bread is super delicious with teh crunchiness of coconut and almond. The best part is it’s really filling and one can’t eat more than one sandwich at a time..


• 1/2 cup coconut flour sifted

• 1/2 cup ground flax seeds

• 1 teaspoon baking soda

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 5 eggs

• 2 Tablespoons chia gel nine parts water to one part chia seeds

• 1/4 cup coconut oil melted

• 2 Tablespoons coconut or almond milk

• 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


1 Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2 Grease a bread or muffin pan.

3 Mix coconut flour, ground flax, baking soda and salt together in small bowl.

4 Whisk the remaining wet ingredients together in a medium bowl.

5 Using whisk, mix in the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Batter will be very thick.

6 Spread into bread or muffin pan.

7 Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 40 minutes for bread and about 25 minutes for muffins. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan and finish cooling on rack.

I had two cans of light tuna with red chilly preserved in oil. So decided to use these for teh sandwich.

Penne down with cream of mushroom sauce….

I am excited to share this with everyone because finally we located gluten free pasta and flour here in Kurdistan….

So this was dinner last night .

For teh sauce I used gluten free flour instead of wheat flour and it tasted just as good!

Cream of mushroom sauce

Heat a thick bottomed pan. Melt 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter. To this add one cup of diced mushrooms. Saute mushrooms lightly with a pinch of salt and pepper. Keep it aside when cooked. Melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter and add 2 tablespoons of gluten free flour. Saute it for 1 min and add 2 cups of milk. Stir while adding teh milk to avoid forming lumps. Add to this pasta seasoning, crushed garlic, cinnamon powder, salt and 1teaspoon of sugar. Keep stirring , and add now the cooked mushrooms. If teh sauce thickens too much you can add one cup of hot water and adjust the consistency. This turned out delicious !

Cook the pastas per instructions. I normally add to it spiced chicken pieces or sautéed vegetables. Top it up with this delicious cream of mushroom sauce and you will satiate your hunger perfectly!
