Homemade 45 Calorie Bread

I buy Sara Lee 45 calorie per slice bread and would like a low-calorie, high fiber bread recipe, preferably pocketbook friendly. Does anyone have a recipe similar to the 45 calorie bread mentioned above?

The reason it's only 45 calories per slice is that it has food grade cellulose in it. This is finely powdered wood pulp, so indigestible that it passes through and doesn't contribute to the calorie count. Good luck!

Google Low Calorie Breads. There are lots of sites for information and some recipes.

You can make any of your favorite bread recipes and tally up the calories of each ingredient. Measure each baked loaf and try to determine how many thin slices you can get from each loaf. Divide your total calories by the number of loaves, then divide the calories of each loaf by the number of slices you think are possible and you'll have the calories per slice. By making each slice thinner, you should be able to reduce your caloric intake. Aim for a bread that has whole grain flours wheat, oat, rye, etc.) and small amounts of oil/butter and probably no eggs (although eggs add essential nutrients to your recipe). I have a French bread recipe that is quite simple with only 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of sugar. It makes two large loafs of incredibly delicious bread. I also have a great recipe for wheat bread that has never failed me and is a family favorite.

Weight Watchers has a low calorie bread also. You can have 2 slices of WW bread that equals the amount of a regular slice of bread.
