Flatbread (Coconut flour and Psyllium)

Yummy flatbread

This is another great use of Psyllium in a grain free bread recipe and is very easy to make too.   Since Psyllium and coconut flour are high in fibre this bread is very filling.  Make sure you drink a lot of water!  You can use this for dipping with sauces, spread with pate or load it up like a open sandwich.    Use it like a sandwich wrap, make a mini pizza…just have fun and enjoy it!  You could play around with the spices too, perhaps add chillis?  

I found this recipe from a lovely blog http://clevercook.net.au/ which is full of awesome recipes!    I used a griddle pan to cook them as I liked the markings it gave on the bread too.



60g coconut flour

2 tblspn psyllium husk powder

40g coconut oil (or melted butter)

1/2 tspn salt

1 tspn baking powder

250g boiling water

herbs/garlic powder (optional)

An open sandwich with grilled veggies

  • Mix the dry ingredients with a hand whisk.   Add the oil and water and blend until a dough like mixture forms.
  • Divide the mixture into 3 large balls.
  • Roll the balls between 2 sheets of greaseproof paper and flatten out.
  • Dry fry in a pan for 2– 3 minutes each side, until golden.
  • Eat and enjoy!
  • Makes 3.

    Wow these are totally amazing, we can’t believe how good they are. I’ve been grain free for about 3 months and these are the closest I have tasted to a wheat or rye product since then. The texture is perfect. Yum, thanks very much for posting this!

      Glad you enjoyed them Anna. I find this is a great recipe when I am hungry and want something quick! Great as mini pizza bases too when my stomach is impatiently growling at me!

        Is there anything you can use in place of the Psyllium husk.

        Hi Sandra. I think that ground flaxseeds or chia seeds might work. I would lean to add a pinch of baking soda too to give it a bit of a lift. Hope it works!
