Flax Flatbread

Flax Flatbread

I bet we've all been there, you're making a recipe and after it is baking you realize you left out an ingredient. Your mind races, "what can I do now?" "Do I scrap it out of the pan and see if it will work if I add it now or do I cross my fingers and hope it is edible?

You know where this is going don't you? Yup, the original recipe called for baking powder and was supposed to be a focaccia bread. I refrained from pulling it out of the oven to add the baking powder and just let it bake. To my surprise and relief, my mistake turned into a tender flatbread that is about 1/2-inch thick. :-)

For breakfast, I had one toasted and spread with peanut butter and sugar free jam. Yum! The best part is one big flatbread has only 0.44 net carbs per serving and is a powerhouse of protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids!

The original recipe can be found here:

Flax Flatbread 3 lg. eggs 1/4 cup water 3 tbsp. olive or avocado oil 2 cups golden flaxmeal (I grind my own flaxmeal) (I use this brand) 1-1/2 tsp. psyllium husk powder (I use this brand) 1/2 tsp. unrefined sea salt (I use this brand) 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. In a deep bowl or blender; blend eggs with an immersion blender or high powered blender 20 seconds or until very fluffy. Add water and oil; blend thoroughly to combine. It should be fluffy. Add flax, psyllium and salt; mix quickly but thoroughly so flax is moistened. 2. Let stand several minutes for flax to absorb the liquid. Pour into the parchment lined pan. Bake 18-22 minutes or until surface appears dry and a wooden pick inserted in center tests clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes before lifting out using the parchment to cool on a wire rack. If you've got a steady hand, they can be sliced in half. Great as an open face sandwich, spread with garlic butter and baked and toasted and spread with your favorite spread. Servings: 4 Nutrition Facts Serving size: 1/4 of a recipe (4.1 ounces).
