    the quest for flat bread

    Primal Fuel
    I am looking for a good recipe for a flat bread, kind of like tortilla or even a bit thicker. I found one that was supposed to be flat bread using coconut flour, tapioca flour, and egg whites (as the main ingredients), but it turned
    to be more like a pancake. That is NOT what I am looking for. Anyone have a good recipe! We are staying away from grains, but ESPECIALLY wheat because my husband is very sensitive.

    from my GF baking cookbook:

    1 2/3 cups gluten free all purpose flour
    1 1/3 cups chickpea flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 tbsp oil
    1 tbsp yogurt

    Mix dry ingredients first, add oil and yogurt, then gradually add 1/4 - 1/3 cup of water. Dough should be firm and not sticky.

    Makes 8. Form into balls, roll flat with a rolling pin. and fry in a skillet on both sides until done.

    I know it's hardly primal, but using 100% tapioca flour would lead to something a lot doughier than you're looking for.

    Take a look at sorghum flour. It's from amaranth seeds.

    From my experimentation, it is very difficult to work with without something "glutenous". It can be done, but takes a lot of patience. Here's the proof: living in the ice age: Sorghum Flatbread

    Googling for "juwar flatbread" will give you a lot of hints. Juwar is another name for sorghum.

    Next time I feel inclined to make this work, I'll simply blend sorghum and manioc. I reckon the manioc will act as the binder. I don't see that eggs are needed in the mix. Sorghum, manioc and water. Manioc will give that stretchiness that is necessary for the bread to remain in shape until cooked.

    I made some flat breads by mixing mashed potatoes, potato starch, and eggs together until I found the right ratio then I covered them in chutney and butter....mind blowing

    Id say taro would be very suitable to make some sort of bread like food from. I just don't know where to start really, but it's texture is liek that of warm bread plucked from the middle of a big loaf.
