    Flatbread (Gluten-Free)

    Scott Adams

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    ½ cup amaranth flour
    ½ cup tapioca flour
    2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
    2 teaspoon light, cold-pressed oil
    ½ cup water
    1/3-2/3 cup extra flour for kneading

    Sift the flours with the arrowroot powder. In a separate bowl, mix the oil and water, then add to the flour mixture. Work the dough with a fork and then your hands. Knead briefly and roll into a ball. Divide the ball into 8 parts. Roll each part into a ball and pat flat. Sprinkle each bread with flour and roll between 2 sheets of waxed paper with a rolling pin. Turn frequently while rolling, and lift the waxed paper occasionally to add flour so the dough does not stick. The bread should be rounded and about 1/8 inch thick.

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a frying pan and heat to medium-high. Put one flatbread in the pan and heat 15-20 seconds on each side. Immediately put bread in oven and heat 3 minutes. Turn over and heat 1 ½ - 2 more minutes. The bread will puff up a bit in the oven, but not as much as traditional pita because it has no yeast. Re-oil the pan with a paper towel dipped in oil, and repeat procedure for each flatbread. Cool breads before storing in plastic bags. Makes 8 breads.

    I found 1/2 cup of water was too much since the mixture was too watery to roll into balls. I poured it into my frying pan like savoury pancakes. Still good especially with garlic and rosemary added.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    I’m always looking for different ways to use jalapeños or other peppers in dishes you expect to find them. I like using coarse, stone ground cornmeal in any cornbread recipe and gluten-free flour actually gives the bread really interesting flavor. This recipe is buttery and delicious and has a great chewy texture.
    Ingredients:
    1½ cups stone ground yellow cornmeal
    1 cup gluten-free flour ( I use Bob’s Red Mill or Authentic Foods, but feel free to use your favorite)
    3 tablespoons seeded and chopped jalapeños, about 1-2 peppers
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ cup sugar
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 egg,...

    Here's a quick and easy zucchini bread recipe that's gluten-free, sweetened with pine nuts, almonds and dried cranberries. It's tasty to toast for breakfast with a spread of nut butter or served as dessert with a dollop of Greek yogurt and honey.
