I’ve had a longing for some avocado toast and there was only one thing for it…bread baking! Thankfully before the element went in the oven AGAIN!!! I think I’m possibly just giving it too much work to do.

This bread is based on the simple grain free and keto friendly flax foccacia. Baked in a loaf tin, no olive oil just coconut, slightly less liquid, half the amount of flax and coconut flour in its place the end result was awesome. Most definitely bread like, doughy, not quite as airy as some of it’s predecessors but somehow lighter I think owing to the slightly lower fat content.

When you just want a snack, not another mini meal, something simple yet satisfying, and you’ve had one to many lettuce cups…

This is your bread! It’s low carb, easy to make, and holds up well in the fridge for up to a week. Freeze it in slices for a simple grab and go fix. You can even toast it under a preheated grill from frozen. I’ve sliced it, diced it, toasted it, soaked it in an eggy custard and fried it, and it truly is super duper versatile. LOVE IT!

It also doubles up as a an alternative nut butter and chocolate vessel! An alternative way to incorporate chocolate into your morning routine. Especially if it’s sitting on top of a warm piece of toast the chocolate will ooze in your nut butter of choice…I’m currently on an almond butter kick.

  1. I’ve made it and it tasted awesome! It was also super filling. I like it more than regular bread actually. However, mine didn’t rise as beautifully as yours. Do you know what could have gone wrong? I used baking powder as well. The only different ingredient is the brown flaxseed, because I didn’t have the golden one.
