Now...I'll be honest, like the title says. This is just a substitute. For beginner low carbers you may HATE this recipe. But I've picked bits and pieces from various low carb bread and muffin recipes to put together something I use when I really want
 

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons dried basil crushed
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoons oil or mayo
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder (not soda)
1/2 Cup pure soy protein powder (or soy protein isolate)
 

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray. Mix all the ingredients into a bowl with a fork and blend until smooth. Texture should be creamy with no lumps. Spread mixture into bottom of loaf pan so that bottom is covered. Smooth over top evenly. Sprinkle more basil or some powdered garlic for added flavor and bake for about 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool. You'll have enough for 2 sandwiches or one sub or "hoagie" (Philly reference)in case you're REALLY hungry. This will not rise very much. So to prepare your sandwich, cut the loaf down the middle vertically long side to long side. Then cut each section again horizontally through the middle. For a mock "rye" substitute you can use 1/2 chocolate flavored soy powder and 1/2 vanilla or plain and add some caraway seeds. By using the soy powder you are getting LOADS of protein and very little carbs. There are approx. 4 carbs to the whole loaf. You can make this more of a sweet bread by deleting the basil and garlic and adding cinnamon and artificial sweetener. Again, be open-minded, experiment with it and give it half a chance. It's so easy that I can whip this up during my busy morning schedule while making my lunch for work and I use this recipe quite frequent
