Coconut Flour Flatbread

Guys. Guys. I found it. A recipe for (flat)bread that actually works! As a bonus it works up insanely quickly. And has only 5 ingredients!

So I tried. I really, truly did. I tried so many times to make a leavened bread. I followed recipes to the letter, or tweaked things based on peoples comments. And I just could. Not. Get it. At least not the the height and level I wanted. It would rise in the oven, and sink when I took it out. Or it seemed like it was cooked just to stay wet. It just wasn’t…what I was wanting.

So I stopped trying to make leavened bread (hey – almonds are heavy!), and switched gears.

I cam upon this recipe for coconut flour naan (thank you Headbangerskitchen!), and with a couple tweaks, have found my new go-to recipe for a quick bread that tastes great and can actually fold and hold things. I’m definitely going to keep experiementing with flatbreads, as that is what I seem to have success with. This is my first success though, so I wanted to make sure to share it with all of you!


Ingredients:

  • 50g coconut flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (or 8g psyllium husk)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup water
  • salt and garlic powder to taste
  • butter/ghee/oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together.20180324_113736
  2. Heat water for 30 seconds in the microwave, then add to dry mixture. I found using a regular spoon worked best to mix everything together.
  3. Form into a dough-ball and let sit for 10 minutes.20180324_114610
  4. Divide into 4 pieces. Roll or flatten by hand each piece between two pieces of wax/parchment paper. Try to get them as flat as you can because they’re going to condense a little when cooking.
  5. Get a pan hot on medium heat and place your oil in the pan. Make sure it’s nice and hot!
  6. Place the flattened dough in the pan and let cook until golden brown (or slightly darker), then flip and allow the same to happen.

That’s it! I swear these cook up in about 15 minutes, and 10 of those are letting the dough rest. It’s so easy I thought I had missed something the first time around.

YAY BREAD.

    Would love if you posted a video of the whole process. I’ve tried making this twice now and am not having good results. The bread just falls apart and is very hard to roll thin. If I make them thicker, they’re only about 3 inches in diameter 😦

        Thanks for the fast response! I just finished my second batch. They tasted good but the whole process was very delicate. I wouldn’t be able to put anything in them without them falling apart. Thanks for your recipes!

    This is great! i actually get only 3 net carbs with my flour and 1g fat. Of course the butter/ghee will add fat and cals, but with just 57 cals for each piece, it wouldn’t be too bad to eat 2 portions with 6 net carbs
