Cinnamon Flax Keto Low Carb Bread
Yep! You got it. Cinnamon Flax Keto Low Carb Bread that actually tastes good. Lack of good bread is probably the biggest complaint I hear from my clients. Why? Because all of the other keto low carb bread out there taste like dirt. I hear this all the time from the women in my private Keto Low Carb community. I mean who wants to give up bread?! If you’re not in my community, you should be! CLICK HERE to join us .
There are actually tons of benefits to low sugar, low carb and Keto friendly bread recipes. You also don’t need to be “Keto” to enjoy them. The top benefit with this particular recipe is that not only is it gluten free, but the base is flax seed meal. As a result, this will yield a high amount of fiber, or “Net Carbs.” Which is of course exactly what you want if you’re eating clean and/ or following the traditional Ketogenic lifestyle.
Sidenote: Did you know that only one teaspoon of sugar can suppress the immune system for four hours? Now think of all of the sugary items that are around. And also think about the flus and colds that go around as well. Another benefit? Avoid getting sick throughout the season!

Cinnamon Flax Keto Low Carb Bread
2 cups flax seed meal
½ cup filtered water
1/3 cup butter (or coconut oil) melted but not hot
5 large eggs
1 tbsp Gluten Free Baking Powder
½ cup Swerve or Xylitol (for Keto) OR 1/4 cup Coconut Nectar**
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 heaping tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
3 tbsp. Ceylon Cinnamon (or regular Cassia Cinnamon… will of course work too. Ceylon tends to be a bit sweeter and not as “spicy.” Either way, Cinnamon is great for balancing blood sugar!)
2 pinches Nutmeg
Optional ingredients for “Sweet” versions:
Pecans or other favorite nut!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep baking sheet by placing sheet of parchment paper on baking sheet.
- Mix the dry ingredients (except Cacao Nibs/ Chocolate Chips) in a bowl.
- Place all wet ingredients in a high speed blender or regular bowl. (eggs, butter or oil, water and vanilla) Pulse until mixture is combined without over mixing. **I personally just mix by hand!
- In another bowl, combine dry ingredients…
- Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well. **I do this by hand as well.
Continue mixing; the mixture will thicken…
- Allow the mixture to “set” in the bowl for up to 5 minutes.
- Pour batter onto prepared baking sheet and use a spatula to spread into a large circle, square, or whatever shape you desire. The thinner you spread the dough, the thinner your final bread will be. You can also separate and make a couple of mini Focaccia’s!
**Regardless of how you choose to spread the dough, be sure that the thickness is even all over.
- Sprinkle anything from Cinnamon, Fennel Seeds, Garlic Powder, etc etc. on top before baking… it really just depends on what type of bread it is!
- Bake for about 15-20 minutes. The bread is done when golden brown on top. It will “spring” back to you when you lightly touch it.
