Paleo flatbread-great for paleo sandwiches and paleo pizza (dairy, soy, grain and sugar free)

We have never been big bread eaters so not eating grain is not something that came hard on us. But having some bread here and now is nice.

Paleo breads are usually made from nut flours or coconut flour and have good portion of eggs in them so they are very moist (zuchinni-bread-coconut-flour). These are nice but discovering paleo flatbread was close to a miracle. This is something you can eat with lunch or make a sandwich with. And everybody that are on paleo know how hard it is to make a paleo sandwich. Usually you use some kind of mushrooms or paleo pancakes. But having flat bread makes it easier, faster and more like ordinary sandwich. This also makes a way for a nice paleo pizza because this flatbread is great as pizza dough.

The one I make is garlic bread because we adore garlic. Recipes on the web for flatbread usually ask for a pizza stone, but as we don't have one we don't use one. I really consider this unnecessary because simple baking pan placed at the bottom of the stove works well enough.

  • 1 cup tapioca powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano leaves
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 garlic cloves


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 
  • Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Add warmed water, olive oil (1/4 cup) and slightly whisked eggs. 
  • Crush the herbs well and add them to the mixture.
  • Mix thoroughly, adding additional coconut flour as needed. It should end up being a very sticky dough that can be flattened with a spatula.
  • Let sit a few minutes to let coconut flour absorb water.
  • Pour onto parchment paper and spread with spatula to 1/4 inch thick.
  • Place parchment paper on a baking tray and bake until golden.
  • Mix olive oil (1/4 cup) with mashed garlic.
  • Remove and add coat with olive oil and mashed garlic mixture.
