Focaccia Bread

Italians usually eat with a chunk of bread in one hand and a fork in the other. What happens when you can’t eat bread? You find a way.



  • 3 tbsp ground flax seed, sifted
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp. coconut cream – the solidified part of the canned milk, not the liquid
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 3 tbsp. melted ghee
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil (coated on top)
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • Toppings: fresh rosemary, roasted garlic, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, dried basil, dried oregano.



Combine wet ingredients (eggs, coconut cream, ghee) in one bowl. Make sure the eggs are whisked well so it’s light and fluffy. Then sift all dry ingredients (flax, coconut flour, baking soda) in a separate goal. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Add 1 tsp sea salt to the mix. Do not add herbs, olives, or sun-dried tomatoes yet.


Grease an 8×8 baking pan liberally with olive oil. Press the soft dough-like batter flat into the greased pan. Next chop the olives, tomatoes, garlic, rosemary and add them to the top of the bread. Lightly press the hard ingredients into the top of the dough. Brush on olive oil. Sprinkle sea salt and the other dried ingredients (oregano, basil) on top.

Bake in oven at 375 for 25 minutes. Slice into squares and serve.


Serve with Spaghetti & Meatballs or even Broccoli Rabe & Sausage.

    I’ve made your focaccia a few times, and really enjoyed it (just reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp.) I’ve transformed it into a breakfast bread that I’ll be publishing on my blog soon, with a link back to you, of course. Thanks for the great recipe and the inspiration.
