Sometimes you just want bread, or flatbread, or pita bread! Don’t let keto stop you! Enjoy this fluffy and satisfying keto pita bread and stuff to your heart’s desire!
Let me just say that pita bread is hard to take photos of! Can we agree on that?? But who cares, right? It doesn’t need to be photogenic, it just needs to taste good and I assure you it does!
I tried making keto tortillas and it did not turn out the way I wanted. I wanted something a bit fluffier, but still dense and more like flatbread and/or pita bread.
One of the problems with many keto breads is that they are often eggy. I am happy to report that none of my keto breads, including this pita bread, is eggy AT ALL!
It tastes great right away or warmed up.
How to Make Keto Pita Bread
Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk, flax, sea salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
Meanwhile, boil the water.
In a small bowl beat the eggs whites and egg and add them to the bowl with the dry ingredients.
Mix with a hand whisk for about 20-30 seconds and then add the hot water and whisk for another 30 seconds until well combined.
Heat oil of your choice (just enough to cover pan) in a medium pan over medium heat.
Take a glob (about 1/4 cup worth) and plop it down in the pan. Using a wet spatula or spoon, press down and smooth out dough blob into a thin (ish) circle (ish)!
Cooking time varies, just lift up the edge and if it golden brown, flip with a wet spatula. The second side cooks much faster. Usually by 30 seconds.
Eat warm or cold!

How do I Store Low Carb Pita Bread?
The best way to store keto pita bread is in an airtight container in the fridge. I prefer to use a glass container, personally.
