Focaccia Bread

I love bread. If there’s a Breadaholics Anonymous meeting anywhere, I need to be there. I had to mostly give up bread because of high blood sugar, but I still try to find ways to indulge. I’ve made this focaccia bread with buckwheat flour and it works well. I’m going to try it with cocount flour next since it will be super low-carb. You can flavor it with your favorite spices for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Cinnamon with some Truvia for sweetness would be a great breakfast bread. Slice it horizontally for sandwiches. Or just cut up and dip in hummus, spaghetti sauce, etc. It will never replace fresh sourdough or cinnamon buns, but hey, we do what we can. :-)  You really don’t need sugar to enjoy bread.

Foccacia Bread

2 cups coconut flour or buckwheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
5 eggs (this helps puff up the bread a bit)
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup olive oil or coconut oil
1 tsp. of your favorite spice – dill, rosemary, basil, cinnamon, etc.

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Spread into oiled 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
