Tip!

You can store the bread in the fridge for 2-3 days or slice it and freeze it for later use. Reheat at low temperature in the oven or microwave. You can even use the toaster for additional crispiness.

If you are looking for an excellent dish to go with the bread, try our Turkish baked shrimp recipe. Yum!

Not a fan of sesame seeds? Feel free to sub in poppy seeds or flaxseeds.

    100 ml of water = 100 g of water is correct but it's only good for water and most similar liquides. Actually, water measurements were used as the basis for the metric system. As explained above, there no such equivalence for non liquid ingredients like flours, sugar, etc

    Although mine is not light and fluffy like the photo, this is the first bread recipe that actually comes across as "bread" to me. I followed the updated recipe exactly with exception for adding a tbls of nutritional yeast like a previous poster.

    I didn't try making it before so can't remark on any differences in the updated recipe.

    I made this with using only olive oil and as I didn’t have sesame seeds, I used chia- it’s delicious and thank you for sharing this!

    Phil.Moore: I'm in Ireland, so use the same measuring system as yourself. I find it handy when using US recipes to use a measuring jug or beaker. 240ml on it is a cup, so half a cup will be 120ml etc. Alternatively, I google what a cup of a certain dry ingredient is in grams then work off that. Not ideal, but the vast majority of good keto recipes everywhere are US( i think they've alot more experience than us with this lifestyle)so its a small price to pay for good tasting food
