Pamela’s + Flax

I have said many times on this blog that I swear by Pamela’s gluten-free bread.  I can order it on Amazon, through the subscribe & save program; I can mindlessly put all the ingredients together in my Zojirushi bread maker & walk away.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  A couple months back I emailed Pamela’s to see if I could add a TBSP or 2 of flaxseed meal to the mix to boost the nutrition & fiber a bit.  I received this message back:

“Good morning Kim!

Well, first let me thank you for your interest in our products! I’m delighted to hear that you enjoy our delicious Gluten-free Bread Mix! You can certainly add 1-2 TBSP of flax seed meal. I would watch for the “stickiness” of the mix; if the mix is too sticky, it will not rise and bake properly so you may want to add an additional 2-3 TBSP of water to counteract the “dry” flax seed meal.

Again, thank you Kim, and I hope you have a great day!

Warmest regards,

Megan Warlick

Well, I had forgotten about it (imagine that…me, forget something?) until I went to make bread this morning and I pulled out the email & made it with the flaxseed meal.  Here is what I did, it was really hard.  I added:

2 TBSP Bob’s Red Mill Flaxseed Meal

3 TBSP water (in addition to the water the recipe already calls for)

I was kidding when I said it was hard.  That was it!  The bread doesn’t look any different really, except for a few more specks of brown throughout (which Jon asked about and I blew it off!  hehe!).  Still tastes amazing and has a little extra added nutrition.  I’ll take that where I can get it!

  1. Flax seed is probably the one “healthy” thing I do on a regular basis (just a quirk of mine:)). I bought an extra coffee grinder and grind it up fresh with that. I’ve even started adding it to my pancake mix and chocolate chip cookies. It seems to give the mix extra fluff and rise. I can’t wait to get a bread maker like you have. One day…

    • Debbie,

      Great idea to add to pancakes & cookies! I haven’t tried that yet. I do use it to top my Oikos yogurt & fresh fruit…so good like that! 🙂


  2. […] So, how did I use this new spread?  I eat a lot of sandwiches for lunch and have grown bored with my turkey/chicken, cheese, sriracha & spinach so I tried out a new combo – roast chicken, strawberry cream cheese, cranberry apple butter, sliced Honeycrisp apple and spinach on toasted Pamela’s Gluten-free Bread.  […]

  3. […] + grape tomatoes & Kraft Fat Free French Dressing, chicken, pear & sriracha sandwich on Pamela’s Bread, cut up pear & Glutino […]
