My Favorite Gluten Free Flat Bread Recipe

If you follow me on tumblr, you will have seen me post this recipe before. I recently made it again as flatbread is a staple in my freezer. It's super easy to grab a flat bread and make a burrito or a wrap with some meat and/or veggies for a quick lunch, or as an east dinner with soup or a salad on the side. I have also made delicious crepe type breakfasts with them.

The recipe is remarkable and does not need any tweaks honestly - I am reposting here just to make it easier to follow (click the link to explore more recipes, I just noticed this one the ingredients were out of order so I botched it when I made it once as I was just following the ingredient list). This flatbread is remarkably easy to make and is both gluten free and paleo friendly (win). You'll need:

  • 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1 cup egg whites (I usually buy Trader Joe’s egg whites)
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup water

Preheat a frying pan over medium-low heat. Put together all the dry ingredient and mix together. Then add all the wet ingredients. Scooping out 1/4 cup at a time, drop batter onto hot frying pan, slosh around a bit so it's nice and thing and at least somewhat circle shaped. Cook about 2 minutes, then flip to the other side and cook. Makes about 10. Double recipe if you wish to stock pile them. They are good in the fridge for a couple of days. They freeze very well. 

What recipes do you double? Is there any gluten free staples you like to have on hand like flatbread?


  1. found you through a google search this morning.

    just made these - my kiddos and i are all happy! i left them a little thicker on the pan, like a pancake. oh, and i left out the onion and garlic, so we could put a bit of fruit spread on them. so tasty! and grain free!

    thanks for posting this. :)

  2. Can I substitute gluten free all purpose flour?
