Olive Bread (Video)
This low-carb, Keto, and gluten-free Olive Bread is made with almond flour, hemp seeds, eggs, olives, and Feta Cheese. And this is a tasty savory bread to eat any time of day!
I’m excited to share this new recipe for low-carb and gluten-free Olive Bread! This is an easy-to-make almond flour bread that has so much flavor from hemp seeds, Greek oregano, Greek Seasoning, olives, and Feta cheese.
I worked on the recipe with Kara for a couple of weeks to get the final version you see here, and when I tried the bread out on my brother Rand who is visiting Utah, he said it was one of the best breads he’s ever tasted!
This is a moist bread from the Feta cheese and you’ll get best results if you let the Olive Bread cool about 30 minutes before you slice it. And of course it’s delicious when it’s freshly made, but I’ve been keeping the leftovers in the fridge and then toasting it in my much-loved Cuisinart Convection Air Fryer Toaster Oven (affiliate link) for about a minute.
I like the toasted bread with a bit of butter, although that’s completely optional! If you like olives and Feta cheese I hope you’ll try this fun new Olive Bread recipe soon!
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
(This is only a list of ingredients; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)
- Almond Flour (affiliate link)
- Hemp Seeds (affiliate link)
- baking powder
- Greek Oregano (affiliate link)
- Greek Seasoning (affiliate link)
- green onion
- Feta cheese
- can of sliced olives
What size pan did I use for the Olive Bread?
I used a 9 inch x 5 inch loaf pan (affiliate link) for this recipe. But the pan was not completely full, so if you have a pan that’s just slightly smaller than that I think it will work.
What kind of hemp seeds did I use?
There are many brands of hemp seeds, and all add a nutty flavor and add a nice texture to baked goods. But I am partial to a brand called Hemp Hearts (affiliate link) which is what I used for this recipe.
Can you use Kalamata Olives in this olive bread?
We made the bread with sliced black olives, but if you’re a fan of Kalamata olives I think they would be delicious in this recipe.

- Beat eggs and then mix into dry ingredients. Then mix in olives, green onions, and Feta, stirring just enough to combine.
- Put mixture into loaf pan and bake 55-60 minutes, or until top is browned and a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out clean. (We baked it 60 minutes, but I would start to check after about 50 minutes.)

- I haven’t tried freezing this bread yet, but I’m guessing it will freeze well.
