Coconut flour flatbread2 min read

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Do you get to the place where you really just want the convenience of a sandwich? A nice paleo sandwich of course…grain free, dairy free, no vegetable or seed oils, and no processed sugar!!! This one ticks all the boxes. (It’s even yeast free if that’s an issue for you.)

Around lunch time yesterday I looked in the fridge and realised that most of the things in there would work really well in a sandwich. I didn’t actually want bread – the desire for that disappeared a long time ago (thankfully). But I was home on my own, catching up on some writing, and I did want the convenience of slapping some nice healthy fillings into a sandwich for lunch.

As often happens, it wasn’t just a matter of making the sandwich, I had to make the bread first. I thought that I should be able to make something fairly easily using coconut flour…and I was right. These turned out to be rather nice and it didn’t take much time out of my day. Here’s the recipe for you.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Tabsp coconut flour (note, this is an Australian tablespoon = 20mls)
  • 2 1/2 Tabsp  coconut oil (melted)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teas sea salt
  • 3/4 teasp baking powder

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  2. Put all dry ingredients into mixing bowl and mix together
  3. Add all other ingredients and mix thoroughly with electric mixer. (Hand mixing with spoon or fork will not be enough for this mixture…the coconut flour will remain clumpy unless you use an electric mixer.)
  4. Spread onto baking tray lined with baking paper. This mix makes about 6 or 7 pieces approx. 10cm across.
  5. Bake in oven for ten minutes

Thermomix instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C
  2. Put all ingredients into bowl and mix – 20 seconds – speed 6
  3. Scape down sides of bowl and mix again (if necessary) – 5 seconds – speed 6
  4. Spread onto baking tray and bake as per instructions above.

paleo sandwichSo there we have a great, easy flat-bread – ready for those yummy fillings to make a healthy snack, or meal. It’s even nut free so could go to school. I’m pretty sure these would keep OK for a day or so. You could certainly make a bigger batch and freeze them. However I’m not sure you could fill them in the morning and put them into a school lunchbox. I think they may get a bit soggy. It might just be safer to pack the filling separately and let the kids assemble their sandwich at lunch time.

I’d love to hear how you use this flatbread.
