Flax Flat Bread

Easy peasy recipe for you today. This recipe contains two ingredients and takes 20 minutes flat to make. It is super versatile too: if you are looking for a simple, healthy, and quick flat bread, crust, chip, or cracker recipe, this is it. Oh, and it's gluten-free and grain-free! I've made this bread four times in the past month and it never ceases to amaze me! 

Flax Flat Bread

3/4 cup ground flaxseed* 
1 egg, whisked

Two individual pizza crusts made from flax! I flipped the top one to show you what the underside looks like. 

Combine two ingredients until a thick, sticky paste/dough forms. Spread using the back of a spoon, onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Place until piece of parchment paper on top and using a rolling pin or your hands, flatten the dough out as much as you can (to about 2-3 millimeter in thickness). Carefully peel back the second piece of parchment paper and discard it. Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes. The more you cook it, the crispier the bread you'll get (so it will be more like a cracker or a crunchy crust). By baking it on the shorter side, it will be more pliable and chewier. Just make sure that it is no longer wet! You want that egg to be fully cooked. When done, slice the resulting bread into slices, pieces (if making crackers), or leave whole as a pizza crust. Or you could have separated the dough from the beginning to make two individual pizza crusts (which is what I did in the picture above). 

Now, use the resulting product like you would crackers, top with nut butter like toast, spread with marinara and other pizza toppings and use as pizza crust, or cut into triangles and use as corn chips/tortilla chips for guacamole and salsa!

*I ground 1/2 cup whole (golden) flax in my coffee grinder, though you can purchase pre-ground flax at the grocery store or bulk food store. Be sure to store pre-ground flax in the fridge.
