Today I’m going to show everyone how to make coconut flat bread because, somedays you just miss bread. Being out of almond flour as I am, I needed a different alternative.
This morning I enjoyed a delicious breakfast sandwich thanks to finding my old recipe book called Coconut Flour Recipes by The Coconut Mama.
I get tired of boiled eggs, cheese sticks and salami, so this morning, craving some kind of “legal” bread had inspired me to look up how to make coconut flat bread for a change.
The book is a free eBook and has ten different recipes for coconut flour including how to make it. I already had coconut flour, eggs, baking powder, coconut oil, and salt, so I was ready!
I usually use almond flour to make my Keto bread items, like 90 second microwave bread, muffins, or cookies, but I was out and it is expensive to replace.
Luckily, I have had a container of coconut flour in the fridge and had plenty left since this recipe only called for 1 1/2 T total.
The recipe is quick and easy, only takes ten minutes in the oven, so I cooked the other components while it was baking.
I fried an egg in butter, over easy style, then threw a couple of slices of hard salami in the pan, with a slice of baby swiss to get it melted.
Once my bread was out of the oven, I fried it in the pan with more butter to get those nice “grill marks” and add that flavor from the butter. The more butter the better on Keto!

Now for the Grain Free Flat Bread Recipe
- 1 1/2T coconut flour
- 1T melted coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1/8t salt (I used Himalayan pink salt)
- 1/4t baking powder
I just took it a step further and browned the bread in the same frying pan I had cooked the eggs in. Then I assembled the sandwich and devoured it!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- In a small bowl, mix coconut flour, salt, and baking powder until combined
- Add egg, and melted coconut oil and mix well
- Let batter sit a few minutes to absorb liquid
- Half the batter and spoon onto baking pan on parchment paper and shape into 2 rounds
- Bake until golden brown or ten minutes
Here it is almost 2pm and I am still full! Then again, I am keto-adapted, plus, I am back on my exogenous ketones from Pruvit now that I am more mobile again. (Click on the links above for more info or to buy directly)
Using pure, therapeutic ketones gives me energy, helps my digestion and helps me lose or maintain my weight. My two favorites are Raspberry Lemonade and Heart Tart. ❤️
Surprisingly, the recipe for the bread turned out delicious with none of the gritty sensation I’ve experienced before using coconut flour. Must be that I used adequate liquid, a MUST when baking with coconut flour.
Being on Keto or following the Keto lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy bread anymore, you just have to use almond or coconut flours.
They add fiber and are low carb, gluten-free, rich in MCTs, and are a good choice for alternative flours.
