Ever since I made this banana bread I was so happy with the way it turned out that I wanted to try using this recipe to make a savory bread. So today I finally did it, because today we finally had cool enough temps in the morning to use my oven! My rosemary bread did not rise quite as high as the banana bread. I have no idea why. But I was still quite happy with it, and very happy with the flavor, very bread-like consistency and the heavenly aroma that filled my kitchen. I have loved rosemary bread ever since my sister took me to a restaurant where they served homemade rosemary bread. As soon as I left there I knew I had to make some! I think this will be great toasted as well with some cheese on it. It's great just with a little butter, or for a sandwich. I hope you'll like it as much as I did.
Rosemary Herb Bread
Recipe By :Ginny Larsen
Serving Size : 16
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 large eggs -- separated
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup almond flour - such as Honeyville
1 cup golden flaxseed meal
1 tablespoon Pyure Sweetener
1/4 cup whey protein isolate -- I used Isopure -- unflavored
1/4 psyllium husk powder -- OR oat fiber
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Marsala cooking wine
1/4 avocado oil (OR coconut oil)
1 cup Ricotta cheese -- (I use whole milk)
Preheat oven to 350F. Place parchment paper in an 8 x 5-inch loaf pan, so that it goes up the sides and hangs over edges, so that it is easy to remove. Spray with non-stick spray.
In medium mixing bowl, add egg whites and cream of tartar. Whip with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl, add almond flour, flaxmeal, Pyure Sweetener, whey protein, psyllium powder, baking powder, rosemary and salt. Whisk together.
Add the 4 egg yolks from the separated eggs, Marsala cooking wine, avocado oil, and Ricotta cheese. Blend together with electric mixer.
Fold in egg whites until fully incorporated.
Pour into prepared loaf pan. Bake approximately 40 minutes. Then place an aluminum foil tent over loaf and bake for 40 to 45 minutes longer. Remove from pan by grabbing sides of parchment paper and lifting out onto a wire rack to cool.
Cool completely before cutting. Best cut with an electric knife if you have one. I slice in the middle first, then slice the half in half again and that in half again until I have 8 slices and then do the same with the other half for 16 slices.
