Paleo Flatbread Recipe – Quick and Easy – Gluten Free
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.
