Flatbreads! Easy to please a crowd but quick enough to have a quiet night in. With this recipe, you can prepare several flatbreads ahead of time.
The best part is that they’re easily customizable like a pizza, you can have a different one every time!

The featured ingredient this time is amaranth flour! It provides a number of nutritional benefits such as a good source of Vitamin C, protein, and micronutrients like iron and phosphorus. It also contains the essential amino acid lysine, which many vegetables and grains lack.


  • 1/2 cup amaranth flour (or bean or rice flour)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp neutral, cold-pressed oil of your choice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cups extra flour for kneading


  • Sift the two flours along with the arrowroot powder.
  • Separately, mix the oil and water.
  • Add the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture.
  • First the dough with a fork, breaking up clumps, and then your hands.
  • Knead the dough and roll into a ball.
  • Divide the ball into 8 portions.
  • Roll each of these portions into a ball, then pat flat.
  • Lightly flour each portion.
  • With a rolling pin. roll each between 2 sheets of wax paper.
  • Even out the rolling by turning frequently, and occasionally sprinkle flour directly to the dough to avoid sticking (each portion should be 1/8 in. thick and rounded or whatever shape you desire)
  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Heat a frying pan on medium high, then lightly oil.
  • Add a flatbread to the pan and heat for 15-20 seconds on both sides.
  • Immediately put the bread in oven for 3 minutes.
  • Turn the bread over and heat 1 1/2 – 2 more minutes.
  • The bread will puff up a bit, but not too much since there is no yeast.
  • Lightly oil the pan again, and repeat for each flatbread.
  • Let flatbreads cool before storing.
  • Or add your favorite sauces and toppings and toss back in the oven!
  • Makes 8 flatbreads

My favorite smoothie: Mix one banana with ½ cup blueberries, ½ cup strawberries, 2 teaspoons of chia seeds, vanilla almond milk or with apple juice.  Add a tablespoon of almond butter if more protein is desired.  Puree in a blender and enjoy!
