Shopping Suggestion: Psyllium Husk Powder

Psyllium husk powder is my favorite keto-friendly ingredient for making quality breads. It retains moisture well and creates a perfectly fluffy, bready inside.

Tips for Making Low-Carb Focaccia Bread

Serve slices of low-carb focaccia bread fresh from the oven, toasted, or cold. It’s excellent with butter, cheese, or liver pate spread thickly over the cut side.

Follow the tips outlined below and modify your own loaf as desired.

Will it be too “eggy”? If you are sensitive to the “eggy” taste, be sure to flavor it up with lots of thyme and onion! Feel free to modify the recipe by adding more flavoring agents like roasted or minced garlic and fresh rosemary.

Can I change the flavor? This loaf can easily be modified with other flavors. Any seasoning blends are great or individual ingredients such as basil, lemon, or pepper may also be used. Additional things like tomatoes, olives, goat or feta cheese may be sprinkled over the top. Experimenting with different flavors of salt is fun! Try some of our favorite 7 mineral-rich salts.

Have everything ready Work quickly once the hot water is added! The dough will thicken up quickly since the psyllium husk is highly absorbent. Be ready to mix it together thoroughly.

Travel-friendly The bread travels well and can be packed into a lunch or taken on the go.
