Low Carb Focaccia Bread

Side Items > Keto Recipes

Bread, bread, bread. That’s all that seems to run through some peoples mind where they’re on a ketogenic diet. Don’t worry though, this versatile and low carb focaccia bread will help you out!

I normally don’t bake much bread, because I don’t really find I have any cravings for it. That being said, it does have a lot of uses, and it is especially useful for people that are only just transitioning to a ketogenic lifestyle. Hamburgers, sandwiches, toast, fried bread with bacon and eggs. Mmm.

In fact, these turned out to be great buns for the Baked Brie Juicy Lucy, and a fantastic sandwich bread which I stuffed with hot chicken sausage and spinach.

If you want a lighter color to your bread, make sure you use Blanched Almond Flour and Golden Milled Flaxseed. It will make for a more “realistic” bread color. Also, if you aerate the batter when you’re mixing it, it will give for more air bubbles inside and give a “holier” consistency. I prefer my bread dense, and honestly don’t mind what color it is as long as it tastes good.

Yields 1 9×9 Bread Loaf

The Preparation

  • 1 Cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1 Cup Flaxseed Meal (Regular or Golden)
  • 7 Large Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Rosemary
  • 1 tsp. Red Chili Flakes

The Execution

1. Preheat your oven to 350F.

2. In a large mixing bowl, add your almond flour. I prefer using blanched almond flour because it’s less grainy. Although since we’re cooking with flax, it won’t make the biggest difference. Just the color will change.

3. Add your flax seed into the bowl. I prefer to use golden flaxseed, but I didn’t have it on hand. If you use golden flaxseed with blanched almond flour, your bread will turn out much whiter than this recipe.

7. Add 2 eggs to get you started. Use a hand mixer to combine the ingredients, adding 2 eggs at a time once they’ve been mixed in.

8. Add your olive oil in and give one last blast with the hand mixer on the highest setting. The more aerated the batter becomes, the more air bubbles can form and the fluffier it becomes. I personally prefer a denser bread.

9. Great a 9×9 non-stick baking pan with butter or spray.

10. Pour your batter into the baking pan, making sure you spread the dough out with a silicon spatula so it’s evenly distributed.

11. Bake for 25 minutes at 350F. The bread will rise, and you’ll see it take on a golden brown color.

12. Let it cool for 10 minutes. Poke a knife around the edges and try to get a little bit of lift on the bread from underneath. At first it might feel stuck, but it’s just the vacuum that was created between the greased pan and the bottom of the bread.

13. Turn it upside down then let it completely cool on a cooling rack.
