Why you should make this low calorie bread recipe

Well, it’s no secret, I love bread. My first low calorie bread article was all about bread buying options at the store. You can see my favorite store bought low calorie bread list here.

But a girls gotta have her homemade, chewy, hot homemade bread too! This bread is perfect for sandwiches, toast, and just eating straight off the loaf.

Plus, it’s so incredibly easy! You’ll be shocked at how simple it is.

And, it only takes 15-20 minutes to cook. Which is awesome. The thing that takes the longest is waiting for it to rise.

Commonly asked questions I get about bread

  • Can you eat bread and lose weight? YES! I am proof. Calories count, so if you don’t go over calories, you can eat bread.
  • Isn’t white flour bad for you? If that’s the only carbs in your diet, than I think it is. White flour isn’t the healthiest thing. But, in moderation, a slice of bread isn’t going to be harmful. I generally try to get your carbs from potatoes, rice and fruit!
  • What if I can’t control myself around warm homemade bread? Yeah, me too. You’ll have to choose for yourself how often you can handle the temptation. I usually make homemade bread on Sunday’s for a big family dinner, but I serve it to my family, and hope it’s gone before Monday morning.

  1. How much does each serving size weigh, please? And how many calories are there in 100gr? This would be very helpful for comparisons ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!!

    1. You can estimate it’s 2 calories per gram by weight of bread.So, a slice of bread that weighs 100 grams would be 200 calories.I aim for slices around 40 grams (which is what classic commercial bread weighs)

  2. Hi! I would like to try this recipe. May I know how hot should the hot water be? Do I need to dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water first or just mix everything all together at one go? Thank you!

    1. I can’t remember the serving size in grams. I’m guessing it’s close to 30 grams per slice, but I’d have to weight the whole loaf again to be sure. So sorry!
      But also, cococnut flour wouldn’t work.

  3. 5 stars
    Iโ€™ve never made bread before but I was tired of all the unnecessary ingredients in store bought bread so I tried this out since it seemed easy enough for my first time and holy cow my entire family loves it more then store bought bread. My husband who isnโ€™t a huge bread person literally starts drooling when he take a bite ๐Ÿ˜‚ I bought some whole wheat flour today so tomorrow Iโ€™m going to try it with that.
    I do know whole wheat can be a little heavier so should I use the same amount as with the normal bleached flour?

      1. Tried it with whole wheat flour and they came out amazing. They are definitely denser and heavier but it still came out sooo good!!!

    1. The Rapid rise yeast has just been more “fool-proof’ for me. From what I’ve read, it dissolves more quickly, so it works faster. I’ve used instant yeast once (although it was probably expired), that I didn’t get a good rise out of, so I prefer to use Rapid rise now.

    2. can you give the cup measurements in grams? like you say 3 1/2 cups of flour. what is that in grams please?

        1. I honestly thought I wrote down the weight of each slice, and now I can’t find it. If it helps, the FULL loaf is 1600 calories. So, if you slice it up, you can divide 1600 calories by the number of slices you get.
