Paleo Flatbread Recipe – Quick and Easy – Gluten Free

Paleo Flatbread Recipe-9-poppopcooks-Paleo-Quick and easy-Paleo recipes-Gluten free recipes

Paleo Flatbread is…

….easy to make. You could make a fresh one every night while putting together your quick and easy weeknight dinners.

My wife – aka – Judy – aka -Gammy – has to be on the Paleo Diet for a while so I make her dinner Paleo style and mine, well, any damn way that I want, as long as it’s quick and easy.

I’ve been working hard at getting this Paleo Flatbread Recipe to where it pleases my honey. So here goes.

I just make one a day for Gammy while the rest of the meal is coming together. You could make bigger batches and keep them in the fridge – or freezer – with paper towels in between them and microwave them when needed.

First whisk together all the ingredients except the olive oil and let it sit for about 8-10 minutes for the almond flour to absorb the water. You could use coconut flour instead of almond flour if you prefer. Basically it’s just the Paleo friendly flour of your choice and a small pinch of salt mixed with water to make the batter.

From that point you can add a bunch of options like a pinch of baking powder to get it a little lighter and all kinds of different flavors that might work for you. Gammy likes this garlic powder, dried basil and grated parmesan cheese combo.

Ya know, I have tasted a little bit of it on occasion and it’s pretty good. BUT, I’m not abandoning Poppop’s homemade bread, ever.

Next put an 8″ – or larger – skillet on at medium and add just enough olive oil to barely coat the bottom. When the oil has heated up pour in the batter. Get the batter to spread out by tapping the center of the pile with the whisk and/or tilting the skillet to get the batter to spread out.

When the bread has cooked and firmed up enough so you can carefully insert a wide burger flipper or pancake flipper gently under the bread to separate it from the pan and gently flip it over.

Cook until it is firm almost to the point of being crispy. Remove the bread to a paper towel lined plate.

It goes over best if served while still warm. Let me know how yours turned out and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Poppop’s Eeeeasy homemade bread

057

The best part about this recipe is that when you come in after a busy day and you want some fresh, warm, out of the oven, homemade bread, it’s ready in minutes. But, to have the dough on hand you first you have to make it. But, it’s easy!

Warm up one cup of good water (bottled or filtered) in the microwave. It’s going to have to be warmer than body temp but not hot hot. The warmer the water the faster the dough will rise but if it’s too hot it will kill the yeast and it won’t rise at all. Put it in a medium sized mixing bowl and add a rounded tbsp. of yeast, a level tbsp. of salt (more or less), about a tbsp. of good olive oil (optional) and a pinch of sugar (optional). Whisk it up until the yeast and salt have dissolved then let it sit for five minutes or so until tiny bubbles (isn’t that an old song?) start to appear on the surface.

010

Add two cups of flour. With a large cooks spoon mix and then fold in the flour until it wants to turn into dough.

012

Add more flour if needed to be able to fold and then knead the dough just enough to get it mixed well and formed into a ball.

IMG_1879

Put a dry towel over the bowl . Some folks cover the dough tightly with plastic wrap . Some folks do it the old fashioned way with a towel . You’re the chef do it whichever way YOU chose. Place it in a warm spot where there are no drafts. On the counter top next to the stove works good.

014

Let it sit until it has puffed up to about double in size, forty five minutes to 2 hours. There have been times when we have been in a crunch and have twisted off a wad of the dough after maybe ten minutes, when it just started to show a little life. It worked! Anyway, after it’s risen punch it down and take as much as you need for tonight’s supper. Have your oven preheated to 550 deg. Form your loaf any way you want it.

074

It’ll be done when you tap on the bottom of the loaf and it sounds hollow when you tap it or when the crust is as dark and crusty as you like it.

Put the rest in a plastic container that has a snap lid. It’ll waiting for you.

Then for the next few days you can grab some out of the fridge and put it in the toaster oven for some homemade, fast, warm and fresh bread right out of the oven with your dinner.

You could double the amounts so there would be even more dough on hand.
