Easy Keto Flatbread
Creating an easy low carb flatbread was a must for our family since it’s a type of bread that was enjoyed prior to going keto.
I knew that in order to get this recipe right I would have to create a recipe that produced a soft, flexible, and bread-like texture.
Since no gluten or wheat is used in this recipe I had to rely on other ingredients that worked well in the past.
It’s why the almond flour flatbread also uses a small amount of golden flaxseed meal, psyllium husk powder, and xantham gum. What is a bonus is that using those ingredients makes it higher in fiber.
That’s right consider this your high-fiber keto flatbread recipe!
