Does almond flour need eggs?

Eggs acts a main binding agent due to the absence of gluten when baking with nut flours. It also helps in giving a lift and making them light and fluffy.

Is this low carb?

One slice contains only 38 grams of carbs, which is much lesser when compared to recipes using regular wheat flour.
