  3. Beat the eggs, buttermilk and xylitol.
  4. Mix together all the dry ingredients except the psyllium husk, and add the melted butter. Mix it through with a wooden spoon.
  5. Mix the rest of the wet ingredients together and add the bowl. Lastly add the psyllium husk.
  6. Stir the mixture well and then allow it to rest for a few minutes so that the liquid is absorbed. Divide evenly into 3 bread pans which are lined or greased.
  7. Bake at 180C for 40 minutes, then turn the oven down to 160C and bake for a further 8 minutes.
  8. Take them out of the oven, out of the pans and place them on a drying rack. Allow them to cool then cut them into your preferred portion sizes.
