Exploring SuperFlax and SuperAwesome Low Carb Breads
If you’re on a low carb diet, then you’ve probably noticed the lack of quality bread options. Even though you’re eating healthy, you still deserve to enjoy bread with a perfect crust and soft centre.
Bakers Deluxe is a popular brand that offers two delicious low carb bread options, SuperFlax and SuperAwesome. These breads are unique, yummy and can help you enjoy a lot of recipes that feature bread.
Let’s review what makes SuperFlax and SuperAwesome such great choices. Additionally, we’ll offer some recipe ideas that you will absolutely love!
Bread has been a staple of our diets for thousands of years and most people eat it every day. For those looking to replace bread and buns that contain refined wheat and carbs, they often turn to lettuce leaves, steamed collard greens, cabbage, nori sheets and Portobello mushrooms. While these can work, they aren’t always as satisfying, especially for sandwich lovers. You need a bread alternative that will keep you on the low carb straight and narrow.
Two common options are:
- Ezekiel bread, which contains unaltered grains. The traditional ingredients include, barley, spelt, lentils and soybeans. This bread does contain wheat but only those that sprout prior to the milling process, which conceivably generates carbs that have less of a detrimental impact on our blood sugar.
- Cloud bread, which is full of proteins and is often used as an English muffin replacement. The main ingredients are eggs, cream cheese and sea salt.
While popular, these two aren’t exactly universally beloved for their flavour or texture.
SuperFlax and SuperAwesome
Bakers Deluxe bread products have several unique features that let you keep bread as part of your diet.
Here are three benefits to consider:
- They are chock-full of protein, flax oil and fibre.
- They are stable at room temperature for around 10 days. To keep for longer, you must store at a cool temperature.
- Each helps you feel full for longer compared to other low carb breads.

The high-protein combination of turkey, avocado and bacon is irresistible and we recommend using SuperFlax bread instead of the 90-second Keto bread to make it come alive with flavour.
In addition to bread, the ingredients list includes, 1.5 tbsp. of mayonnaise, 1 slice of aged cheddar cheese, 2 slices of bacon, ¼ avocado sliced and 60 grams of turkey.
The only cooking involved is to crisp the bacon in a skillet over medium heat. The next step is to assemble the sandwich by first spreading mayo on both sides of the bread. On the slice you designate as the bottom bread, lay the cheese on top of the mayo. In order: add the turkey, avocado, bacon and place the top slice of bread on top.
You can enjoy right away or grill for an additional 2-3 minutes per side. Either way, it’s delicious.
Hot sandwich lovers will enjoy this recipe. You can also substitute turkey for chicken if that’s more your thing.
For the sandwich, gather 4 cups of shredded warm cooked chicken, 12 slices of SuperAwesome bread and 1 can of peas, drained.
Making the hot chicken sauce is a little more complicated. You need 6 tbsp. of butter, ½ cup of flour, 1 tsp. of dry mustard, 1 tsp. of chili powder, ¼ tsp. of paprika, a sprinkle of cayenne, 4 cups of beef broth, 1 tbsp. of ketchup, 1 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce, ½ tsp. of onion salt and a bit of salt and pepper.
Create the sauce by melting the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add the spices and cook for an additional 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until it reaches a boil. The last step is to simmer for about 10 minutes, during which time you can adjust the seasoning.
Time to make the sandwich! Divide the chicken among the slices of bread. Pour the sauce over the chicken and top with the remaining bread. Add a spoonful of peas over each sandwich.
This recipe is an exciting update on the boring ol’ chicken salad recipe that diners have been slinging for decades. The inclusion of grapes, walnuts and apple give it a touch of sweetness and by using SuperFlax or SuperAwesome you can make it a key part of your low carb diet.
Follow this list to get everything you need: 2 whole chickens about 3-4 lbs. each, olive oil, salt and pepper, 1/3 cup of mayonnaise, 1 cup of sliced green grapes, 1 cup of chopped walnuts, 4 ribs of chopped celery, 1 peeled and chopped green apple, juice of 1 lemon, a handful of chopped chives, butter lettuce and the bread of your choice.
Preheat your oven to 400F. Place the chickens on a rimmed baking sheet, season with salt and pepper and drizzle them with olive oil. Roast the chickens until their internal temperature reads 160F (taken between the breast and thigh). This should talk roughly 1 hour. Once they are cooled, use two forks to separate the meat from the bone and shred.
In a bowl, combine the shredded chicken, mayonnaise, grapes, walnuts, celery, apples, chives, lemon juice and generous pinches of salt and pepper. Mix well.
Lastly, assemble the sandwiches by stuffing the lettuce with the chicken salad. Next, place the lettuce between two slices of bread and repeat until all your sandwiches are made.
This Cajun-inspired sandwich has mouthwatering flavours and is hearty enough for dinner.
The ingredients include, 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 1 tbsp. of blackened seasoning, 2 tbsp. of unsalted butter, 8 slices of SuperFlax or SuperAwesome bread, 4-6 tbsp. of almond butter and 4 tbsp. of red pepper jam.
Coat both sides of the chicken breast with the blackened spice, and then heat the butter in a cast-iron skillet. You want to start by cooking the chicken only halfway, roughly 5 minutes. Flip and repeat until the centre is white, another 5-6 minutes. Let the chicken rest before cutting it into thick pieces.
Once the bread is toasted, spread 1 to 1 ½ tbsp. of almond butter on one side of each slice. Next, spread the pepper jam on the other slices of bread. Divide the chicken in even portions among the slices with the almond butter and top with the pepper jam slice.
