Diet Hunza Bread

Admit it – what you miss most in a low-carb diet is the bread. From tortillas to toast, carbohydrate-packed bread is a staple of many diets. When you decide to commit to a low-carb diet, adjusting to life without bread may cause you to hesitate.

Don’t fear – Hunza Diet Bread is a delicious, dense, chewy bread that's very nutritious and is almost impervious to spoilage.

There are a variety of recipes floating around the ‘net that claim to be the “perfect” recipe for Hunza bread, but this version appears the most often for the diet type. There is another version that is much richer the word "Hunza" is Hungarian for "golden raisin". Their bread recipes are more like typical Western yeast or soda breads and they feature many kinds of flour, none that I found used Millet flour. They usually contain raisins, nuts and spices as well, so they are more like a dessert bread than a diet staple.

A typical Hunza Millet Bread Recipe (Himalayan):

1 cup Millet flour
1 cup grated carrots
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vegetable salt/iodized salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs

Combine flour, carrots, oil, honey, and salt. Mix well, then stir 3/4 cup of boiling water into the mixture. Beat the egg yolks well adding 2 tbs. of cold water, continue to beat and then add to the mixture. Fold in stiffly beaten eggs and bake in a hot oiled pan at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

It has some carbs, but it does qualify as low-carb, so you may want to give it a try.
