33 Keto Flatbread Variations

The quick and easy keto flatbread recipe from The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook is a HUGE hit! Catching up with the Savory Broccoli Muffin recipe, these flatbreads are becoming one of our most talked about recipes. I see a theme evolving here, y’all like warm bready things 😉 That’s good news because I am only a short while away from publishing our second cookbook – The Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking! It will be complimentary to The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook and stuffed with 102 recipes for sweet and savory baked goods.

There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into making up your own recipe. It took months of experimenting to get this low-carb, all-purpose bread substitute just right. Now people across the world can enjoy this guilt-free, fiber rich, almost zero carb keto flatbread!

Recipe Tips:

  • A fellow flatbread lover advised adding 1/4 teaspoon baking powder to the batter which increases their puffiness when cooked
  • Use chia and flax interchangeably; you can substitute one for the other
  • Whole chia may also be used in place of ground chia.
  • Make a double or triple batch and freeze leftovers. They freeze well and thaw quickly.

Crepes

Wait until the frying pan is hot, then pour a large spoonful of batter in the shape of one large crepe. Cook over medium heat, watch carefully and lift at the edges as they cook. Move the crepe around a bit to make sure it doesn’t stick. Cook for a minute or two on each side. Serve with Vanilla Whipped Cream (recipe in The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook) and raspberries.

Chocolate Bread

Add 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup cacao powder and 1/4 to 1/3 cup Lakanto to the batter and mix well before cooking.

Spiced Bread

As you mix up the bowl of batter, add in 1 teaspoon vanilla powder, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg OR 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice OR 1 tablespoon 5 Chinese spice blend

Healthy Kids Breakfast

Many of our readers are cooking for multiple diet types and the Keto Flatbread serves as a great tool to nourish the whole family. Dress up a plate of flatbreads for your growing kids with seasonal fruits (banana, peaches, apples, etc), local raw honey, and a dollop of full-fat Greek yogurt or homemade coconut yogurt. Kids only need to restrict carbs if they have serious medical reasons, otherwise ample amounts of whole food carbohydrates are completely acceptable for children. Use these flatbreads as a grain-free, gluten-free source of fiber, protein, and fats to nourish your young ones. Provide a hot breakfast in the morning or pack them into lunches.

    This recipe and the fact that I can adapt it to what I have (chia or flaxseed, grounded or not) is possibly the reason why keto has been easy so far. I have crazy schedules as a teacher, so I usually end up having just a sandwich… My journey to keto started with primal edge health, so I’m lucky… I’ve never felt lost.
    I prefer it savory, with a bunch of leafy goodness, avocado (palta) and some meat… (best mix arugula+basil+avocado+some tiny tomatoes from my garden)

      What a great combo, I’ll be trying that basil, meat, and avo next – I agree, savory flatbreads are the way to go.

    Hi Jessica and Tristan and little people,

    I made these pancakes this morning with about 2 TSP of Pumpkin Pie Spice and they were just great to satisfy a sweet craving (no sugar or alternatives added).

    I’m thrilled to find your site after about 10 weeks on low carb (under 20g a day) and IF……no weight coming off just yet…….I’m 74.4Kg but changing shape and feeling better than I have in a long time. T2D (14 years) and 70 years old, I feel better than I have in a long time and hoping to ditch my only medication Metformin in the future.
    Thanks for all you are doing to get sensible information and great recipes out into the world.
    From across the Big Pond in Australia.
    Cheers
    Kaye

      Thanks for writing in Kaye! I’m happy you are enjoying our work. I like the idea of adding in Pumpkin Pie Spice 🙂 That’s a great spice to add to make things a bit more “sweet”. I hope your journey continues to go well in keto land 🙂

    I just got the ingredients for this in today and it worked so well! I added lakanto and chocolate powder to the mix and made a chocolate pancake. Topped it off with lakanto maple syrup and it was awesome! All the kids wanted some. I was worried it would have an after taste from the flax but didn’t find that to be the case at all. This is a new favorite and will be replacing a lot of different bread recipes because it’s so versatile. Thanks for the recipe!!!!
