Easy Flourless Bread
If you're stuck at home and you've run out of flour, no problem. The easy flourless low-carb bread recipe is for you!
Adapted from my favourite and most popular Low-Carb Almond Flour Bread recipe here on Ditch The Carbs, this flourless loaf simply swaps out the coconut oil for butter instead which makes for an easy healthy pantry bread during this period of being stuck at home.
Now there’s no need to compromise on taste or texture merely because you don’t have any flour or yeast in the pantry. This natural grain-free, gluten and sugar-free bread is a healthy homemade bread with minimal ingredients at only 1.9g net carbs per slice.
The Easiest Yeast Free Bread
If you’ve never baked without flour before, whether that is wheat flour or your other usual flour, OR you've never used a low-carb substitute like almond flour, you may wonder how this flourless bread recipe will produce a familiar sturdy yet light loaf.
Binders for Yeast Free Flourless Bread
Just like almond flour, this Flourless Low-Carb Bread recipe is gluten-free. To ensure that my bread gets sufficient structure, volume and fibre without the help of gluten, I turn to the following trusted ingredients:
- Psyllium husks - These allow for the binding of moisture in baking mixtures that are gluten-free. They are also a great source of soluble fibre and help to add structure in gluten-free baking which gluten ordinarily provides.
- Eggs - This source of protein is used in both gluten-based and wheat-free baking alike and aids in rising and binding baked goods. Egg yolks, in particular, are very effective binding aids.
Adding these two main binders to your ingredients will make your flourless low-carb bread sturdy and lite. In fact, your family may not even notice that you are serving them flourless bread!
Apart from psyllium and eggs, there are many other binders you can explore for gluten-free baking which include Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Chia Seeds, and Flax Seeds.
My Low-Carb 3 Seed Bread Recipe is a good example of adding chia seeds, eggs and psyllium as binding agents and provides excellent dietary fibre.

Should this be stored in the fridge or does it freeze well?
In the cooler months, I store the flourless yeast-free low-carb bread in an airtight container on the countertop. In warmer months, I keep the airtight container in the fridge. And yes, it does freeze well. Slice before freezing then place a piece of parchment paper between each slide so they are super easy to defrost when you only want 1 or 2 slices. Enjoy 🙂
Why is the bread a purple color? I followed the recipe with the exception of using ghee instead of melted butter.
Hi Amanda, some brands of psyllium husk can give the bread a purple tint. It is safe to eat though.
Can Metamucil be substituted for psyllium husks?
Metamucil is a pharmacy supply of psyllium husk and it often contains sweeteners and flavours so is not appropriate for use in recipes. You can buy psyllium from iHerb or Amazon. It is used in a number of low-carb recipes here so you will utilise it a lot.
In your instructions you mentioned coconut oil. But no where is coconut oil listed in the recipe ingredients. Confused.
The recipe uses melted butter instead of coconut oil because it has been difficult for readers to obtain coconut oil. Butte makes for a lovely flavoured flourless yeast-free loaf.
