Gluten-free Italian Foccacia Flax Bread

This is fantastic served with homemade guacamole, pesto, hummus, cheese sauce, for an open face sandwich, or serve plain accompanied with a blended soup. Have fun creating your own options. It also refrigerates and freezes well (if it lasts that long). This recipe also equates into a fantastic and healthy dog biscuit.

Gluten-free Italian Foccacia Flax Bread

This Recipe is :



  • 2 cups flax seed meal (seeds ground first then measured into 2 cups)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup (or more to taste) Nutritional yeast
  • 1 heaping TB. Italian seasoning
  • 1 TB. Healthy sweetener of choice: Sucanat or coconut sugar. I used NuNaturals liquid stevia extract equivalent – 1/32 tsp=1 T (1 dropper full) for a candida-friendly option.
  • 3 beaten organic eggs
  • 2 TB. chia seed meal ( seeds ground first then measured)
  • 1/3 cup organic coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup fresh water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9.5 X 13.5 dish and line with parchment paper – IMPORTANT! (coconut oil works great!).
  2. Combine in a large bowl and mix dry ingredients — a whisk works well.
  3. Add wet ingredients to a bowl or Vitamix and whisk WELL. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir well till fully combined.
  4. Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it’s easy to spread.)
  5. Spoon batter into pan and spread out or use wet fingers and pat out to edges of pan – it doesn’t have to be perfect.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browned.
  7. Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want.

Just wanted to point out that you classed this as vegan but the recipe calls for 3 eggs. Do you have a suggestion for an egg substitute?

Hi, I was just wondering what the carb count would be on the flax focaccia bread would be? Thanks

Hi Carolyn, I don't count or measure carbs, etc. in my diet, so I do not know that information. When you eat whole foods and healthy items like this in moderation, you don't have to keep track of that information. I hope you like it. Thanks!
