Five: Let's go alternative
Part five in the gfree bread series. Today's post will revolve around alternative breads. Thinking-outside-the-loaf kind of breads. How about breads that are made not only without gluten, but without flour of an kind. Yep, I'm talking about breads made with whole grains, beans, seeds, and nuts. Featured below are baked flat breads, skillet breads, and other unique breads from around the web.
1) Baked Flat Breads: combine all of the ingredients listed for each bread in a blender or whisk well in a bowl, then pour the batter into a parchment-lined baking pan. Bake at 400 for 20-40 minutes.
Chickpea Bread - 1 cup chickpea flour + 1 cup water
Lentil Bread - 2/3 cup dried lentils + 2 tablespoons flax seeds (grind seeds and lentils in a coffee grinder to make 'flours') + 1 cup water. Inspired by this recipe.
Almond Butter Bread - 1/2 cup almond butter, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons honey. Inspired by this recipe.
2) Skillet Breads: prepare this bread like you would pancakes! Blend or whisk well all ingredients and then pour batter onto a greased and hot frying pan or skillet. Flip the flat bread once bubbles start to appear.
Buckwheat Flat Bread - 1/2 cup buckwheat flour + 1/4 cup oat flour (buy the flours or grind in a coffee grinder) + 1 tablespoon corn or arrowroot starch + 1 teaspoon baking powder + pinch of salt + 1 cup water
Millet Flat Bread - 1/2 cup millet flour + 1/4 cup brown rice flour (buy the flour or grind in a coffee grinder) + 1 tablespoon corn or arrowroot starch + 1 teaspoon baking powder + pinch of salt + 1 cup water
