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.

hi! may i know the serving size in grams? and if the flour can be replaced with coconut flour? thanks!
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.
I’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 isn’t a huge bread person literally starts drooling when he take a bite 😂 I bought some whole wheat flour today so tomorrow I’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?
I’m so glad!!! I would start with the same amount, but I haven’t made it with whole wheat flour. Let me know how it goes!
Tried it with whole wheat flour and they came out amazing. They are definitely denser and heavier but it still came out sooo good!!!
Nice! thanks for getting back to me!!
Easy recipe that makes wonderful bread. Thank you!
Would this recipe work with almonds flour?
It would not work with almond flour.
Can you freeze the dough for later use?
I actually have never Frozen it, If you try it, let me know how it goes!
I made this. It is delicious
I made this. It is delicious.
Is this Really 20 slices per loaf ?
Yes, but that’s not abnormal. In a 10 inch pan, each slices is 1/2 inch. Plenty for a slice.
what is the main difference in using rapid rise versus instant yeast
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.
can i use whole wheat all purpose flour instead?
yes! whole wheat flour will work.
I’m so thrilled to make my first homemade bread. Thanks for this recipe.:)
