How To Make Coconut Flour Flatbread
It’s very easy to make this keto flatbread recipe with coconut flour at home.
All you need to make this pita bread keto recipe are 6 wholesome pantry ingredients, no eggs or dairy!
- Coconut flour – these keto coconut flour wraps are made entirely with coconut flour to achieve the best taste and texture. Don’t skip or replace it with any other keto flour like almond flour, or your flatbread dough won’t hold together. You can use my keto almond flour tortilla recipe if you don’t have coconut flour at home. They are less fluffy than these coconut flour flatbread, so if you are after a keto pita bread recipe, rather use this coconut flour tortillas recipe!
- Psyllium husk – you must use psyllium husk for success in this keto flatbread recipe. In fact, this is an egg-free keto wrap recipe, and without husk, the dough wouldn’t stick together. Psyllium husk is mostly made of fiber and binds the coconut flour, plus it creates a soft, fluffy texture similar to an Indian roti or pita bread that you will love.
- Baking soda – or double the amount if you prefer to use baking powder.
- Lukewarm water – think bath temperature about 38C/100F. It’s important not to use cold water in this coconut flour tortilla recipe, or the keto dough wouldn’t form. In fact, the temperature activates the fiber quickly in the husk, creating the most beautiful bread dough.
- Olive oil – or any other healthy oil with a high smoke point like avocado oil, MCT oil, or melted coconut oil.
Preparing the keto flatbread dough
This coconut flour tortilla dough is super to put together.
Kneading dry ingredients to the wet ingredients
First, add all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and give it a good stir to evenly spread and combine the fibers.
Next, add the lukewarm water and olive oil. Finally, knead the dough with a spatula at first, then when the keto flatbread dough starts to dry out, use your hands or the dough hook of a stand mixer to knead the dough for at least 1 minute.
Your dough will be very wet at first, coming dryer as you go, knead vigorously until you can form a soft ball of dough.
Resting the dough
Finally, rest the low-carb flatbread dough in the bowl for 10 minutes at room temperature. In fact, this coconut flour psyllium husk flatbread recipe is very high in insoluble fiber.
It means that the fiber needs time to suck out the liquid from the dough to bind the flour together. After that time, your dough should be soft and easy to roll.

Rolling The Keto Flatbread
To avoid that, follow the step-by-step instructions below to shape beautiful round-shaped coconut flour roti that won’t stick to your roller pin.
- Cut the dough into 4 even pieces.
- Roll each piece of dough into a small ball and then place this ball between two long pieces of parchment paper. You can lightly oil the parchment paper if yours tends to stick to the food.
- Press the dough ball with the palm of your hand and start rolling.
- Roll your bread as thin as you like – for keto flatbreads, roll the dough thinner and for keto pita bread, keep the dough thicker.
- When the dough is rolled to the thickness you like, peel off the top piece of parchment paper. Set aside.
- Use a saucepan lid – 5 inches/15cm in diameter – or use any round shape of similar size to use as a guide and cut out nice round keto flatbreads.
- Keep the outside dough to reform more balls and roll additional low-carb flatbreads.
Cooking the low-carb wraps
Now, warm a cast-iron skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat.
When the pan is hot, flip over the flatbread onto the pan and gently peel off the last piece of parchment to release the keto pita bread into the pan.
Finally, cook for 2 minutes on one side, then slide a spatula under the flatbread and flip it over. Cook for an extra minute until dry and slightly puffy.
These keto flatbreads can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Place the low-carb coconut flour flatbread on a plate, and wrap it with plastic wrap to prevent moisture from going in. Store in the middle rack of the refrigerator.
Frequently Asked Questions
It takes a bit of patience and practice to bake with low-carb flour, especially coconut flour.
In fact, coconut flour is one of the best low-carb flours for keto baking, but it’s also the one with the most insoluble fiber.
It absorbs liquid very fast and dries out keto dough quickly. That’s why it’s crucial to measure coconut flour precisely with a scoop and sweep method or weight with a kitchen scale.
Why are my coconut flour flatbreads too moist?
If your dough is too moist after 1 minute of kneading, it means your dough is missing fiber. To fix that, add slightly more psyllium husk – add this ingredient gradually 1/2 teaspoon at a time!
Knead the dough between each addition for at least 1 minute to incorporate and keep adding more psyllium husk until the dough comes together into a soft ball of dough.
As a general rule, you shouldn’t need more than 1 extra teaspoon of husk to bring the ingredients together.
Why is my keto flatbread dough crumbly and dry?
This happens if you added too much coconut flour into the bowl.
It can be because you didn’t sweep the measuring cup after scooping the flour, or your coconut flour contains lumps – meaning some fibers are already activated by moisture.
To fix that issue, add a bit more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, and knead the dough for 60 seconds until it is soft and comes together.
Why are my keto flatbreads blue or purple?
Some people report blue or purple color in the keto bread recipes when using husk powder.
That’s why we recommend Now Foods Whole Psyllium Husk for the best result in our keto tortilla recipes.
How to rewarm my keto flatbreads?
Just before serving, remove one coconut flour roti from the plate. Place in a hot non-stick pan or pancake griddle and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Then, add the topping of your choice, fold the low-carb tortilla, and keep cooking until the filling is hot and the cheese has melted.
You can also add your low-carb toppings into the cold keto tortillas, wrap and bring in a hot sandwich press.
