Flaxseed bread is a delicious replacement for bread that’s very low in carbs and high in dietary fiber. It is soft, great toasted in butter, and freezes well. It has no eggy taste, and it’s suitable for both the keto diet and paleo diet because it’s gluten-free and dairy-free.

Missing bread on a keto diet? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. I pretty much sure you’ll love this flaxseed bread, but you can check my other keto bread recipes because I’ve tested a few and shared the ones I loved the most.

What is Flaxseed Bread?

Flaxseed bread is a low-carb bread replacement made with flaxseed meal instead of wheat flour, eggs, and avocado oil instead of the unhealthy fats (margarine).

Ingredients for Flaxseed Bread

To make this recipe you’ll need only seven ingredients that are pretty cheap and easy to find.

  • Flaxseed meal – You can grind your own flax. It doesn’t have to be a super fine powder. A roughly Ground flax makes this recipe better. Use a cheap spice or coffee grinder. Flax seeds have a strong nutty flavor and give a nice whole grain taste to the bread.
  • Eggs – Use large eggs at room temperature. Don’t skip this step because it reduces the eggy taste.
  • Oil – I used avocado oil because I want to this bread to be dairy-free. I also love the taste of the flax bread with light olive oil or unsalted butter.
  • Water – This will help activate the flax seeds and will prevent the keto bread from becoming too dry in the baking process.
  • Spices & Salt – This is the part where you can become creative and add any of your favorite spices. I used dried oregano but you can use Italian seasoning and sprinkle with chili pepper flakes. Yum! That what I’m doing in my next batch.

The instructions are fairly simple. Just mix the dry and the wet ingredients together and bake them in the preheated oven. Below, in the recipe card, you’ll find more detailed instructions.

It’s perfect for sandwiches too. Here’s my favorite one with chicken, avocado, and cream cheese.

    1. HiJody! Thank you so much for your kind comment. That's fantastic you liked the recipe. It makes me very happy!!

  1. I tried making this, but when I mixed all the ingredients it was way too dry. Then I noticed you mentioned 1/2 cups of water in the recipe (altho it’s nowhere mentioned in the preparation), so added it at the end. Got a really slimy ball of dough that didn’t rise an inch.. Don’t know what I did wrong?

  2. Hi there this may be a stupid question but I am just starting keto so I’m really diligent in tracking my macros are the nutritional facts for one slice?

  3. LOVE the flaxseed fococcia! The texture is perfect for sandwiches. I bought 4” round silicone baking molds and they make perfect sandwich/burger buns! Amazing! Thank you!

  4. Hi, I am about to make the flaxseed bread, can I make 10 individual rolls instead of one whole bread? Thanks

    1. This was our first taste of bread since going low carb. Thank you for an awesome recipe!
      My dear hubby was most delighted. We topped with butter and home made chia strawberry jam. In heaven x
