Paleo Garlic Flatbread Recipe
Who can resist warm, pillowy flatbread? Now you don’t have to, thanks to this paleo garlic flatbread recipe.
How I Made This Paleo
In case you were wondering, most flatbread is not paleo. Just because I added this recipe on the site does not mean all flatbread is on the level. This version has some modifications.
First, all-purpose flour is out, and a mix of coconut and almond flour is in. Neither of these flours contains gluten to bind the dough, so eggs become critical for this flatbread to turn out properly.
If you are allergic to eggs or sensitive to them, try substituting a “gelatin egg” using gelatin and water. A chia seed replacement is another option.
Sadly, sugar is often called for in flatbread recipes, but I’m just opting out of the notion of bread needing to be sweetened.
Working With Dried Yeast
If you’re new to the world of dried yeast, I’ve got some advice that may help you out.
First, temperature matters. If you store your yeast in the fridge or freezer, let it warm to room temperature before you use it.
Your dough will rise best in a warm room – about 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit. If it’s warmer than that, your dough is going to rise pretty darn quick.
Certain ingredients slow down the rising process. Recipes containing eggs (like this paleo flatbread) will take longer to rise. Butter, milk, and sugar slow things down.
