Flat Bread

If you’ve ever looked at a recipe for gf bread or baked goods you’ll find a confusing list of flours you probably never knew existed: tapioca flour, garbanzo bean flour, millet flour, white rice flour, brown rice flour…and all in one recipe? When I went to my local Publix, they actually had a good selection of these, but the prices are out of control. For $12 you get 6 lbs of Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose GF Flour. Worse? Xanthun Gum (which keeps the fragile mix of flours together) runs another $12 for half a pound. I decided to only get those 2 and a similar priced bag of white rice flour, and hoped I could just use the all-purpose flour in place of everything else.

Here’s what I was trying to make:

After a bunch of “reinventing,” this is what I ended up with:

aka: Flat Bread

Which definitely did the job with some brown sugar and butter, but was mostly a failure. I now I realize why most people with gf just don’t even bother with bread substitutes.

What I have done that works is make smoothies every morning that are both delicious, and Logan says they make him feel like he’s getting healthier when he drinks them:

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 scoop gf whey protein powder
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries or strawberries
  • 1 tbsp agave (honey works too)
  • 1 scoop of a ProGreens powder
