6 Perfectly Chewy and Fluffy Paleo Naan

By Jess

Loved naan bread before you went paleo? We all did, trust me. Luckily, I’ve found a handful of paleo food bloggers willing to recreate naan for you with paleo-friendly ingredients. Give one of these a try!

The only way to serve up an Indian-inspired meal is with a side of naan. Luckily there are these naan recipes to show you how to do it the Paleo way.

1. Simple Paleo Naan

This recipe is egg and coconut flour based, making it a great low-carb bread option that’s also rich in protein and flavor. You don’t need to add any starch to this version, which is great! Consider, though, a bit of crushed fresh garlic. So yummy!

2. 3 Ingredient Paleo Naan

How’s this one for simple? This naan is made with just almond flour, tapioca flour, and coconut milk. You can also add a bit of salt, and if course when it’s done you’re going to want to slather it with grass-fed ghee. It’s part of the experienceā€”trust me. And so delicious.

3. Yeasted Paleo Naan

The yeast in this recipe helps replicate the bready flavor of naan so you aren’t left with something that tastes like eggs and coconut, which is a common pitfall of paleo breads. Almond flour and tapioca starch form the base of this bread, which makes for a great flavor and texture combination.

4. Seasoned Paleo Pita or Naan

While pita bread and naan bread aren’t the same, we have to be okay with blurring some lines when it comes to paleo cooking. This bread can be used as both, and it’s made with coconut flour, psyllium seed husk, sea salt, water, garlic powder, cumin, and fresh herbs.

5. Puffy Paleo Naan

This version of naan bread is made with coconut and tapioca flours, sea salt, baking powder, eggs, coconut milk, and just enough coconut oil to fry the bread. It’s super tasty and a great alternative to the not-as-healthy naan you can get at Indian restaurants

6. Paleo Naan With Flax

This paleo naan recipe uses ground flax seeds, which help keep the bread moist and chewy, and prevent it from breaking and crumbling. You’ll also need eggs, Greek yogurt (or coconut milk if you’re dairy free), olive oil, coconut flour, arrowroot, apple cider vinegar, salt, and ghee. It tastes like bread, because it is!
