Benefits of Sticking to a Grain-Free Diet
Cheating on a diet isn’t the worst thing you can do, but once you’ve moved to a gluten-free diet, you’ll likely never want to go back—even for one meal. Dropping grains from your diet can strengthen your mental performance, eliminate brain fog, and boost your ability to concentrate.
A grain-free diet also has many benefits for your body. You may find it easier to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, avoid digestive pain and issues, and enjoy a high level of energy. Keep up the benefits of your healthy diet with the foods you love by trying this flatbread recipe.
Grain-Free Flatbread Recipe
This flatbread recipe uses coconut flour, which has a whole host of nutritional benefits. Science Direct performed a study that showed coconut flour to be an excellent source of fiber, allowing you to enjoy the digestive benefits of a grain-free diet.
Not only is this bread delicious, you only need five ingredients. In fact, besides the coconut flour, you likely already have these ingredients in your pantry:
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
This recipe makes enough for two burgers or sandwiches for a total of four pieces of flatbread. You can adjust as needed to make enough for the whole family.
Stir the dry ingredients (coconut flour, sea salt, and baking powder) together until evenly mixed. Slowly stir in the eggs and the coconut oil. Make sure the ingredients are well-combined and let them sit for five minutes. During this time, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
On a baking pan, divide the batter into four even scoops. Spread the batter out until it’s the right size for your sandwich, burger, or pizza. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool, and enjoy.
How to Use This Bread
This bread is extremely versatile, so you can swap it in for just about any recipe that uses bread that you may like. If you need a side dish for your meal, spread some butter on it and eat it plain. This bread also holds up well to sauces and sandwich meats for a filling sandwich.
