Another microwave 1 serving sandwich bread.  This is a variation of some of the others I've made, this time using a combination of almond flour and psyllium seed husk powder.  I've been wanting to try the psyllium seed and see how it affects me.  I really like the way it affects this recipe!  This bread is soft and the texture is much like wheat bread and I like the way it toasts.  Last night I made this in my GT Express and really liked the way it came out!  It takes 10 minutes in there versus 2 in the microwave, but I loved it!  I toasted it for an egg sandwich this morning and it was wonderful!  You can do it in Caraway Rye as I did in this recipe or just use another liquid such as almond milk or water for plain bread and leave out the Caraway seeds.  I made a really nice ham and cheese on rye for lunch yesterday with this toasted.  My next project will be to see if I can make a larger loaf version that is baked in the oven.  Would be nice to have a whole loaf of it on hand.  


1 large  egg
2 tablespoons  coffee
1 teaspoon  oil
2 tablespoons  Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon  almond flour -- blanched - such as Honeyville
1 teaspoon  psyllium seed husk powder
1/4 teaspoon  baking powder
1/4 teaspoon  caraway seeds
1/4 teaspoon  Splenda (optional)

In small, microwaveable container, the size of a slice of bread, OR a bowl to make a bun, add egg, coffee, and oil (melted if using coconut oil or butter).  Whisk with wire whisk until well mixed and frothy.

To liquid mixture, add Parmesan cheese, almond flour, psyllium seed husk powder, baking powder, caraway seeds and Splenda, if using.  (The Splenda does not make it sweet, but I think brings out a little more flavor).

Mix together well with a fork and microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes, or until all the way done in the middle.  Time will vary according to your microwave oven.  Mine is 1000 watts and takes 2 minutes.  

Plop out onto paper towel to absorb moisture and let cool for 5 minutes.  Slice in two and toast for best flavor.  (You can also make half the batter at a time for each slice if you prefer for half the time on each one.)

Variation:  If you have a GT Express, place all the batter in one side of preheated well and close lid.  Bake 9 to 10 minutes. Remove and let cool, then slice.

Serving Ideas : This is a very soft bread, and especially tastes good toasted for a ham on rye melt, or a Rueben sandwich.

  1. Interesting. Will have to try this. Thank you.

  2. Quick question on the recipe - is it 2 tbs of prepared coffee, coffee grounds or instant coffee? I made it and went ahead and used prepared liquid coffe that I had left over from breakfast and just wanted to make sure this was what you had in mind. Thx!

    1. Carol it is liquid coffee already prepared. Sorry about that! I use it as the liquid in the recipe.

  3. Quick question does this make 1 serving a little confused by the nuturtion facts.

    1. Sorry about that Kim... It is one piece that you can slice into 2 pieces of bread... so the nutrition is for the whole thing as 1, or as 2 slices once you slice it into 2 pieces.

  4. This was YUMMY!! By far the best "Mim" I ever had, Good luck with your loaf trials!

  5. Hi Ginny - quick question, is there a particular brand of psyllium seed husk powder that you use, and I like rye bread but not caraway seeds, is there an alternative to get the rye taste?
    Sandi ☺

    1. I am right now using Vitacost brand, which I got on But I've gotten it in bulk at our health food store. I think it's pretty much all the same as long as it is the powder without anything else added to it. Hmmm... not sure without the caraway, how it would be but you could just try without, using the coffee and see how it comes out. I haven't experimented with it, so really don't know.
