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 easy keto 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 bread on a keto diet!
Thank you to all the people who have shared their ideas with us via email, instagram, and facebook. We are inspired by the many creative ideas that showcase the versatility of the Keto Flatbread recipe. I have collected the ideas here for everyone to try out.
The original recipe is simple and takes only 5 ingredients. Watch the Keto Flatbred recipe video for full details.
- 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.

Sweet Keto Flatbread Variations
Serve the flatbreads just like Coconut Flour Pancakes, warm and spread with butter! Top with whipped cream and low-carb berries too. Then, drizzle with yacon syrup and garnish with chopped almonds or hazelnuts.
I have a popular collection of keto pancake recipes you don’t want to miss!
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.
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.
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.
There are many family-friendly keto breakfast ideas to make!

Layer on grilled onions, blue cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, homemade mayo, and avocado slices. Nestle these between two flatbreads and you have yourself a legit low-carb burger.
Fold the flatbread into a taco shape and stuff fill with canned sardines, minced cilantro, chopped onion, salt and a few squeezes of lime juice. Serve with avocado on the side.
Cook the flatbreads, then sprinkle your favorite cheese, grated, on one half, fold over the other half and warm over medium heat until the cheese is melted.
