Sayd's Paleo Bread

When you look at most paleo recipes, they have "sandwiches" that use lettuce instead of bread. As an avid fan of this traditional lunch staple, I knew I had to find a better replacement for bread to keep myself sane, and tried out a couple of low carb/non wheat bread recipes before coming up with my own. I'll follow up with a bunch of sandwich ideas, all paleo friendly. I like adding some walnuts to the mix for a little crunch, but you can leave them out if you prefer. Enjoy!

Sayd's Paleo Bread
1 c flaxmeal (ground flax seeds) 
1 tbls baking powder
2 beaten eggs + 1 egg white
1/4 cup of almond milk
3 tbls olive oil
1 tbls salt
2 tbls brown sugar splenda
1/4 c chopped walnuts (optional)

1) Place parchment paper in cake pan (approx 9" x 11" in size) and preheat over to 350 degrees. 
2) Mix flaxmeal, baking powder, salt, splenda and walnuts in a medium sized bowl. 
3) Add in eggs, milk, and oil into mixture and stir well until all ingredients are well blended. 
4) Pour batter into parchment-lined pan, spread until uniform thickness is achieved. 
5) Bake for 20 minutes, or until the top of the bread springs back when you push down on it with a fork. Cool and cut into 8 slices. To keep longer, store bread in the fridge or freeze.
