Low-Carb Kalamata Olive Bread – Oh Heaven!

Low-Carb Kalamata Olive Bread. I have waited for this moment for so long. Briny, chewy, bready, and hardly any carbs. HARDLY ANY.

Yes really. Low-Carb, GF, Kalamata Olive bread that you can make in minutes..and use for sandwiches, or garlic bread, or pizza... I am so happy right now! Lowcarb-ology.com So, finally creating a sandwich bread I loved yesterday inspired me and I wondered if I could do the same with something a bit more… artisan. One of my favorite breads has always been Kalamata olive bread. I love the chewiness, the briny flavor, the olives… 

To me, olives are summer. I don’t know when they are harvested and honestly I don’t care… but I can eat olives and drink a little wine and imagine I am in Italy on a summer afternoon. It’s a mini-vacation without the jet lag.

Well, this low-carb kalamata olive bread is something I am going to be making a lot.  It is awesome good and I have all kinds of ideas of how I want to use it. Today I fixed a platter with some deli meat, bleu cheese, olives, artichokes, and the bread. My husband is working late, the kids wanted fried chicken from the Colonel’s, and I had this.
Poor me, right? HA!

Be careful not to overcook the bread or it will be dry. Undercook it just a touch, the top will still be moist, and then let it stand for a minute or two to finish cooking.

  3. Made this today, I am in love and in heaven. Toasted, untoasted, it’s all good.
    Thank you so, so much for sharing this recipe. I only had brown flax seed flour, so it is darker than the picture. After I took it out of the microwave, I was very dubious about this bread, it looked very odd to me….. Followed instructions, let it cool down, sliced, had a couple with butter and a couple without. DIVINE.
    I look forward to delving further into your blog and recipes so I can continue to make better choices for body, mind and spirit.

    Thanks again!

    Yours truly,

    Reply
    • It might. 🙂 GIve it a try and see what happens.


  10. Absolutely delicious. Being Italian, and loving savoury stuff, I added a pinch of salt but you know what? Don’t. It was utterly delicious, but I needn’t have added it. Lovely recipe. Am now going to have a wonderful time exploring the remainder of the site. Just a request: Would it be possible to post Net Carbs/calories with the recipes?
    I see you didn’t with this one (only in the replies to the comments here) so I don’t know if you have with other recipes. But it all looks absolutely delicious! Great site!
