Ever since going on a keto diet, I’ve been missing pita bread and flatbread like crazy! While I do enjoy a good keto bagel or keto donut, I can never go past a simple flatbread.

This keto flatbread recipe is so easy to whip up. You do them over a stovetop but the key here is to ensure you cover the frying pan and cook on low heat- Doing this results in the perfect crispy outside and easy flipping.

As mentioned, THREE ingredients are needed (spices don’t count and are optional).

If made correctly, I promise they won’t taste eggy, and be durable and perfect for all your flatbread, pita bread and wrap replacement needs!

How to make keto flatbread

The Ingredients

  • Coconut Flour- Coconut flour acts as a sponge and when paired with the egg whites, give it a thicker texture. Various brands of coconut flour have different strengths, so you may need to add a little extra.
  • Egg whitesLow calorie and high protein, you can use liquid egg whites (from a carton) or break individual eggs and separate the yolks from them. 
  • Baking powderGives the keto flatbreads some rise and leavening. 
  • Herbs/spicesAdd anything or everything you want- salt, pepper, Italian herbs, red pepper flakes, etc. 

The Instructions

Start by adding your egg whites into a large mixing bowl. Add your coconut flour and baking powder and whisk very well, until combined. You’ll want to let the mixture sit for several minutes, to thicken.

While the keto flatbread batter is sitting, start preparing your pan to cook the flatbreads on. Grease a large, non-stick pan with cooking spray and heat up on low-medium heat. Once hot, add ¼ cup portions of the flatbread mixture and use a rubber spatula to spread it out. Cover the pan immediately, so the hot air cooks evenly. Once bubbles start to appear around the edges, remove the cover, flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat the process until all the batter i used up.

Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour?

You can swap out the coconut flour for almond flour, but you will need to double the amount of almond flour. 

Start by using ½ cup almond flour and add more as needed. 

Can I use whole eggs instead of egg whites?

We use egg whites in this recipe to both keep the calories low but also have a fluffier and lighter flatbread. You can use whole eggs, but be wary that the texture can be quite ‘eggy’ and dense. 

Is there a vegan substitute? 

Unfortunately, the egg whites are necessary for these low carb flatbreads.

You may prefer 2 ingredient flatbread or flourless flatbread instead. 

Low Carb Flatbread Tips

  • If your batter is too thin, add a little extra coconut flour. 
  • For perfectly cooked flatbread, be sure to cover the pan while they are cooking. Leaving them uncovered will leave the flatbread having an eggy texture, something we would like to avoid! 
  • Do not pour too much of the flatbread batter on the pan, as the thinner the flatbreads are, the better the texture. 
  • Add flavorings! I kept the base recipe without any set spices, but add salt or herbs or whatever you’d enjoy.
  • Cool the flatbreads before using it as a sandwich, wrap, pizza etc. They can be quite fragile when still  warm. 

How to eat low carb flatbread

  • Wrap- Fill your flatbread with your favorite sandwich fillings and wrap up and enjoy! 
  • QuesadillaFill your flatbread with cheese, avocado and other fillings, flip in half and toast on a hot pan or griddle. Serve with salsa and condiments. 
  • Flatbread pizzaUse the low carb flatbread as a pizza crust. Spread the flatbread with tomato sauce and toppings of choice, and bake in the oven until crisp on the edges and the cheese/toppings has melted. 

Storing and Freezing Flatbread

  • To store: Leftover keto flatbread should be stored in the refrigerator at all times. Keep them covered or in a sealed container. The flatbreads will keep for up to 5 days.
  • To freeze: Place individual flatbreads in ziplock bags and store in the freezer to enjoy at a later time. They will keep well frozen for up to 2 months.

    1. I love flatbread. I’ve made it with protein powder before too—actually came out pretty well! I would actually prefer being given flatbread to pasta. like give me a bowl of marinara sauce and a few pieces of flatbread and I am so happy.

        1. Try it on Salad instead of dressing
          When I go to Subway I have a salad with chicken and the marinara on the side( not very often) I’m on a low carb diet.

    2. Awesome! Honestly, I’m not sure if my family will appreciate me stealing all their egg-whites, but…who knows? They might not notice… >:)

    3. DUDE THIS IS A GIGI RECIPE RIGHT HERE!!!!!! I told you I am adding eggs back into my life and the “tiredness” can just suck it, right?!?!?!?! Well I am going to start with this.. Okay, I lied, I started with the waffles I made last week, but whatever, this has 12 egg whites – LOL so that’s the true test! I really wanted to invite you over for brunch today too by the way 🙁

    4. I love easy recipes like this. I am all about only a few ingredients. And these look REALLY good and pretty too. I’ve never had any cholesterol problems or issues- I am, however, very anemic. I have been for years- it’s definitely been an issues and has impacted my life, and unfortunately, that is something that diet only cannot help with. Although I DO believe diet plays a huge role in healing- I also believe that once you get past a certain point, other interventions might be necessary as well (for me I can only take a specific supplement IN ADDITION to a specific diet..).
