Fight your carb-laden naan cravings with this buttery and soft gluten-free keto flatbread!
Foldable Keto Flatbread
This is not a drill! It’s actually a *drool* because that’s what you’ll be doing while these buttery flatbreads are frying…
Aside from being super delicious with a buttery, salty coat, these disks of keto flatbread heaven are a breeze to fry up—meaning no waiting for the dough to chill or your oven to heat up. Dangerous? Absolutely! But also very helpful when those bread cravings hit!
Fast Dough and even faster flatbread!
The whole idea behind this keto flatbread dough recipe is to have an easy way to insert low-carb flatbread into my mouth as quickly as humanly possible without having to go through an extensive cooling, rising, and/or baking process.
It’s a lot like my gluten-free Focaccia, only faster/easier because this hunger waits for no oven (to preheat)! I find that having something quick and easy is best for me when I’m trying to keep to my gluten-free keto lifestyle.
Tips for the best Keto Flatbread
BONUS- You can check out the rad video I made (haha) to see what the rollin’ and fryin’ process looks like. Find it in the recipe card!
Shaping the dough is important but the imperfections make it delicious. As you can see, it has those fun char marks which make this flatbread feel more authentic. The dimples in the dough will give you the best, authentic marks on your low-carb flatbread. Smooth the dough as best you can, then dimple it a bit so the raised dough browns!
This dough is soft and flexy due to xanthan gum! Both the xanthan gum and coconut flour contribute to holding this bread together. Because coconut flour burns easily, don’t overcook these keto flatbreads! It makes them sad and stiff.
And don’t forget to check out the video found within the recipe card! It helps to see how I work the dough and the frying process.
