When you are eating paleo and trying to avoid food allergens, eating anything bread is a hard task to accomplish. Usually, our turkey burgers are wrapped in lettuce or all by their lonesome, but these cute little flatbreads definitely help spice things up a bit.

Thanks for the diversity little green flatbreads… thanks! 🙂

What I am going to give you is my basic recipe for making the bread. Then you choose these 3 things:

  1. Size- you can mold these into 4 smaller “bun-sized” flatbreads (which is what I did for this post), or make 2 “pita-sized” flatbreads, or have a hay day and mold it into 1 large flatbread (did someone say pizza?)
  2. Shape- OkOk…. I did round breads… but some of you may be trying hard to get your picky toddler to eat or maybe even trying to impress your lady, so Mickey Mouse heads and hearts could work too!
  3. Spices- I used the basic garlic base for my flatbreads today (Yum!) but feel free to play with these! Some spices I would recommend would be (pick 1-3):
  • Thyme
  • Garlic and Onion
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Parsley

Just be sure not to over do it! The more dry ingredients you add the more liquids you will need in your recipe. I don’t think Just a few spices will hurt but just to be safe keep it under 1t total.

Add coconut flour, baking powder, and spices to a bowl and whisk together. Then add finished flax product, honey, and oil and let mix until well combined. Pull dough out of mixer and divide into four pieces. Place dough balls on the parchment paper and shape into buns.Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes- I would flip them at 20 minutes to let both sides brown a bit!
