Homemade crispy low-carb bread

I would like to share with us a great an easy recipe for homemade crispy low carb bread. 

Ok, there are many crispbreads in the shop so why even bother of doing yourself?
* this one is really low in carb
* you know what you put in there and you can customise it
* it is so easy to prepare that you will not even feel that you were about to baking

Ingredients which I used wheat and oats brans, 2 egg whites, linseeds, soy flour (and pumpking and sunflower seeds which are not in the picture)

If you are just little into healthy cooking, you will have most of the ingredients at home. 
You will need:
* different kind of brans, I used 1 cup of wheat and half a cup of oat brans
* half a cup of linseeds
* half a cup of pumpkin and sunflower seeds (or any other seeds or nuts)
* half a cup of soy flour (or whole grain flour, rice flour, nuts flour)
* 2 egg whites
* pinch of salt
* water (depends of consistency of dough)

Step 1: mix all dry ingredients

First I mix all dry ingredients together. Don't forget about salt!
Then add 2 egg whites and mix all again.

Step 2: add water and 2 egg whites and mixed dough again

Dough have to easy to form, so add as much water as needed (about half a cup or little more). Mix ingredients again.

Step 3: use spoon to redistribute thin layer of dough on the oven plate

Redistribute dough on an ovens plate (I put it on baking paper). Water in dough should prevent dought sticking to the baking paper. 
Try to redistribute dough as thin as you can, use all ovens plate space. Put it to warm oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes in 200 grades (if it's too much, after 15 minutes turn it to 150 degrees).

Tip! After 15 minutes of baking, take plate from the oven and cut though into pieces, just before it gets hard - it will be easier for you to divide your crispbread
And finally - enjoy your homemade low carb bread snack! :)

Rich in fibre, low in carbs - perfect snack! :)

But be careful!

Even if this is a low carb snack, it doesn't mean that you have to splurge yourself with unlimited amounts.
It contains calories! They mainly comes from protein and fats which are in this snack, so be careful. 
What is more, it is really rich in fibre - you don't want to overdose it, believe me ;))

My serving proposition :)
