It’s estimated that at least 30% of people are gluten sensitive and don’t even know it. Many more are insulin resistant and would feel better and lose weight much more easily if they eliminated or reduced their grain intake dramatically. Our recipe this week will help you do just that and still get your “Bread Fix” without the grains or gluten. It contains only 3 ingredients and takes moments to prepare. Use it for pizza, in place of bread, to scoop humus, or all by itself with a variety of flavoring options. Our favorite – fresh basil and garlic. Yum! The full recipe is below along with a downloadable PDF. Enjoy!
By the way, if you don’t have a really good non-stick pan, we love Orgreenics! It’s much healthier than Teflon and we think works way better!
Grain Free Flatbread Recipe
1/2 cup of Almond Flour/Meal (Finely Ground)
1/2 cup of Tapioca Flour
1 Cup of full fat canned coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
Optional: Dried or fresh herbs, fresh garlic, crumbled goat cheese, or anything else wholesome and tasty!
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, then in a nonstick pan or skillet over a medium heat, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter, the batter is quite thick so spread it out a bit with a spatula, kind of like making a pancake or crepe, not too thin though. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes until it is a little golden or brown on the bottom and then flip and cook the other side until a little brown too! (if you do not have a non-stick skillet you will need some sort of oil or butter, but otherwise non needed)
Variations, mix some herbs and or garlic in batter, top with Ghee or some goat cheese. These can also be used as a base for mini pizza’s to toss under the broiler with your favorite toppings. Lot’s of other ways to use such as wraps, taco shells etc. Most tasty when served warm, you can refrigerate and then reheat on your skillet or pan!
This bread is grain free and wheat free, but not carbohydrate or calorie free – so eat in moderation!
