Keto Flaxseed Bread Recipe

This delicious flaxseed bread recipe is easy to make and tastes great. It’s also grain free, gluten free, dairy free, paleo and keto friendly! This simple recipe was inspired by Maureen Keegan, and I am so glad she shared it with us. I usually double the recipe so that I have bread all week for sandwiches, as a side for soups or for morning avocado toast.

This flaxseed bread is also great with this Savory Pumpkin Seed Dip, this Copycat Nutella or this Garlic Hummus.

This bread freezes well so go ahead and make a double batch and slice and freeze the second loaf so you can easily just pull a slice out of the freezer when you need it.

Why You’ll Love This Keto Flaxseed Bread Recipe

This keto flaxseed bread does not require any proofing or rising time so it is quick and easy to prepare. The recipe doubles very well so you can have two loaves on hand. You can also sprinkle with whatever nuts or seeds you have on hand. I used sesame seeds but pumpkin, sunflower or more flax seeds will all work well.

Ingredients To Make Flaxseed Bread

Equipment

How To Make Keto Flaxseed Bread

  • In the bowl of a food processor or mixer that you will eventually mix everything in, add the flax meal and water. Do this first and allow it to soak.
  • While the water and flax meal are soaking, add the dry ingredients to a separate bowl. Mix together the protein powder, husk powder, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  • In the same bowl as the soaked flax meal, add the eggs, apple cider vinegar, and tahini or nut butter.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
  • The dough will be very sticky and come together in a ball. Spoon into a greased loaf pan lined with parchment paper. If you want a smoother top crust, wet your hands and pat the top of the loaf smooth. I sprinkled my loaf with sesame seeds!
  • Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes.

Pro Tips

Here are a few things you can do to ensure your keto flaxseed bread turns out well every time.

  • Grease the loaf pan well so the bread comes out easily. You can coat it with coconut oil or spray with olive oil.
  • Make sure to let the flax seed sit with the water for a few minutes so it gets thick.
  • Store your flax seeds in the fridge to keep them from going rancid.

FAQS

Are flax seeds okay on a keto diet?

Yes, flax seeds are fine to eat on a ketogenic diet.

Is there a substitute for psyllium husks?

No, there is no substitute for psyllium husks. They are good to have on hand to make up gluten free recipes and they last quite a long time so pick up a bag to store in the pantry.

How can I add more flavor to the flaxseed bread?

To add more flavor you can add seeds to the dough itself or add fresh or dried herbs to the batter.

Notes

This recipe makes one loaf, but usually, I double it so I have two loaves for the week! Experiment and add mix-ins like pumpkin or sunflower seeds for a crunchier texture bread. This recipe is very forgiving so go ahead and play with ingredients and add-ins that you love.
