Sweet or Savory Flatbread

This flatbread is made from chickpea flour, so not only is it gluten free, it’s also grain free.  I first made this flatbread with store-bought chickpea flour, which worked beautifully, but was a bit pricey for an everyday option.  Then I tried making my own chickpea flour (see below).  Bingo!  Super easy and super cheap.  Either way works for this recipe.  Try the sweet or the savory version.

Instructions for both versions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F, and grease an 8 x 8 baking dish.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together well.
  3. Add the milk/water and oil whisk for about a minute until all the lumps are gone and you have a thin pancake-like batter.
  4. Add the blueberries or olives and stir in until just mixed.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. For the savory version, sprinkle the top with Kosher salt at this point.
  8. Then turn the oven down to 350 F and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  9. Let cool for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares.  The sweet version is good served in a bowl with milk.
