Flatbread (Coconut Flour and Psyllium)

Yummy flatbread

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.

    will try it, thanks. wondered what I was going to do with this coconut I have, I dont have any psyllium I will substitute oat bran will that work? I really dont’ like bread anymore since following this lower carb diet I have been following a month now, but this bread you made sounds delicious.

    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!

          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!

    Hey folks, tried a similar recipe using psyllium and tried some substitutions. My finding? Go and get some psyillium husk. Not expensive and great to have as nothing else really fills that spot if you want decent ‘bread’ ….. (plus it’s good for you and fills you up!) 😉

      Hmmm…have been pondering over this one as I make this a lot and have not yet encountered this problem. I wonder whether the key is the type of psyllium powder? My advice would be to add the water at the end in stages, blending the mixture until you have a dough.

          Hi Maryanne, it sounds like you did not have enough water in it. Before it goes in the pan it should have a dough like consistency. Try not to overwork the mixture too. Thanks for popping by and hope the next attempt at this is successful!

    So I tried making this, and it stuck to the pan using the “dry fry” method. I use cast iron. Also, the inside was raw, even after cooking it much longer than you recommend. Should I bake or deep fry this instead? I don’t understand why it stayed raw for so long, or why it kept sticking to the pan. Even when I added oil for the next piece, it was still sticking. I really want to like this bread, help!

      Hi Amanda. Sorry to hear this is not working..I am wondering whether it’s the cast iron pan? This should not stick to the pan. How about trying a saucepan? Or other type of pan. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

        I ended up baking the next batch in the oven, much better texture, albeit a slower method.

        I would like this bread to have just a bit more stretch to use as a wrap, would xanathan gum help with this?

      Use a non-stick pan (Teflon) and a quick spray of coocnut or olive oil. It should flip like an omelet without a spatula! Mine did.

    I tried these yesterday and they came out as total gloop and just didn’t work. I tried again today adding water slowly until it formed a dough, and didn’t add the whole 250ml as suggested. Worked much better, but does still take longer than the 2-3 minutes each side.
    Strong flavour, but really nice.

        Hi, On low carb for several weeks now and no oven, so trying for something like this bread that’s not baked. I am now in PR and not much available, did not see psyllium anywhere at the Health food store. Can I substitute with almond meal? I do have the coconut flour. Great blog and ideas! Thanks!

    I used various websites to convert the weight measurements to dry measure. Is this correct?
    1C coconut flour
    2.75Tbsp coconut oil (or melted butter)
    1C boiling water

    I split the recipe into 10 small balls instead of 3 large ones and used a rolling pin to flatten each between two sheets of parchment paper. It made excellent 1.5g net carb tortillas!

    Hi, I just tried these, and I had serious problems with keeping them together. When I tried to flip the bread in the pan I ended up with bits and pieces. I followed your recipe except I used ground flax seed instead of psyllium. Anybody else having this issue? Any suggestions on what to do differently? (I still ate them; used them as a base and built a salad on top)

      Perhaps add more water? The psyllium helps binds the mixture and it should be dough like. However I like the idea of using ground flax seed too!

    Hi Diva,
    Well I tried these a second time and had the same result. I used metric for everything and weighed the ingredients incl coconut oil as solid, then melting. Admittedly I added the oil and water all at once but still found a doughy consistency after mixing.
    Then putting it in the (dry) pan, I found a lovely layer of the bread stick to the non-stick cast iron pan. It doesn’t really work after that.
    Perhaps you could put some more photos or a video of you making it so I/we can check our progress more closely?

    Haha, well I should have scrolled down through all the comments before making these so I’d have the right measurements. I tried my first batch with just 1/4 cup of coconut flour. They came out much more like slightly rubbery pancakes than bread. But still tasty, anyway. 🙂 I found that the only way to stop it from sticking to the non-stick pan was to get it really hot first. If the pan isn’t super hot when you put the dough in, it all just cements itself down. I also found it pretty funny that when I flipped it, it swelled up like a balloon! So this one’s still a work in progress for me. but I think I should be able to find a way to make it work.

        I tried another batch this morning, but this time with the full 1/2 cup of coconut flour and it came out MUCH more like bread & looks the same as your pictures. I think I may use this recipe often. I’ve gone without bread (and therefore sandwiches) for nearly five years, so it’s a nice change! Looking forward to seeing what new treats you have come up with. 🙂
