Paleo breads are hard to get right, especially those of the crispy, flavorful, and well textured variety. When I was a bread eater, I loved focaccia (who doesn’t?). Or anything Italian, really. So we came up with this Paleo Herbed Focaccia in honor of that old favorite.
Traditional focaccia is an Italian bread that is crisp, light, and coated with olive oil. It’s an airy, flat loaf and is often made with herbs, vegetables, or olives. Our Paleo version is easy to make, and you can bake it in a pie pan or cake pan if you want a round loaf, or even on a cookie sheet if that’s more your style.
It’s delicious on its own, but you can customize it however you like; cherry tomatoes, good olives, or onions make great toppings. Experiment to find your favorite, and you’ll never miss out on bread again! I hope you love it! Please let us know in the comments.
Paleo Herbed Focaccia Bread
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut cream from the top of a can of coconut milk
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs of your choice, such as rosemary, thyme, or oregano
- Olive oil, for brushing
- Coarse sea salt, for topping
- Toppings of your choice, such as chopped olives, halved cherry tomatoes, roasted garlic cloves, or whatever your heart desires
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Beat the eggs with the coconut cream until smooth. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut flour, salt, and baking soda.
- Add the egg mixture to the flour and stir until well combined.
- Line a pie plate or small jellyroll pan with parchment and spread the batter in the pan.
- Drizzle with olive oil and press your fingers lightly in the dough to indent.
- If topping the bread, add toppings evenly. Bake for 15-20 minutes until top is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and brush with more olive oil. Cool before slicing and serving.
*UPDATE: we made a mistake when we first published this recipe. It should have been 1/4 cup of coconut cream instead of 1/2 cup, as it was originally stated. We apologize for any inconvenience and we’ll try to avoid typos in the future!!
