Low-Carb Focaccia Bread is an oven baked delight with crispy, crunchy crust and soft bready inside without the use of yeast or carb heavy flours.
A low-carb focaccia bread can be made with a handful of ingredients, that you probably already have on hand. Mix them all together in a bowl. Transfer the dough to a lined baking sheet, pop it in the oven, and let it bake for 30 minutes. Once done, the loaf will be crisped and firm to the touch. Let it cool slightly before slicing and serving.

I brought this low-carb focaccia bread to friend’s birthday party and its was gone in a few minutes! Thanks to the unique properties of psyllium husk powder, no one was able to tell it wasn’t wheat based until they asked.
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.
