Naan bread is a traditional bread from Central and South Asia, though “naan” is originally a Persian word meaning “bread.” Typically it’s loaded with gluten and carbs, but not this delicious and easy version.


  • 1 cup tapioca or arrowroot starch
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 cups canned coconut milk (full fat or reduced fat)
  • (optional) ¼ cup goat feta or shredded pecorino romano
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
  3. Add in the coconut milk and cheese.
  4. Whisk until well combined, adding salt and pepper.
  5. In a small or medium pan over medium heat, add avocado oil for frying.
  6. Pour 1/2–3/4 cup batter into the pan.
  7. Fry for 3–5 minutes, then flip and fry for an additional 3–5 minutes.
  8. Place naan on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  9. Bake for 14–16 (depending on crispiness preference), flipping halfway through.
  10. Pair with your favorite dish and enjoy!
