- Yield: 14 slices (½" thick)
- Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
- Total Time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes
- 2½ cups almond meal/flour
- ½ cup garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour
- ½ cup ground golden flaxseeds
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 tablespoon caraway seeds, finely ground in a spice grinder or coffee mill

- ½ cup butter, melted

How to Make It
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8½” × 4½” loaf pan.
- In a food processor, combine the almond meal/flour, garbanzo bean flour, flaxseeds, baking soda, salt, and ground caraway seeds. Pulse on low speed until well mixed. Add 2 teaspoons of the whole caraway seeds, the egg yolks, butter, buttermilk, and xylitol or stevia and pulse just until blended.
- In a large bowl and using an electric mixer on high, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Pour into the flour mixture and pulse just until the egg whites are evenly distributed, but do not run the food processor at a constant speed. Spread into the pan and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon caraway seeds. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely on the rack.
