Lentil Flour Flatbread Recipe

We have been loving our new Wondermill grain mill and have been trying a bunch of healthy gluten free recipes as well as developing our own. The rice flour pancakes and the black bean brownies were a success, but the skillet rice flour peach cobbler I had planned for this post didn’t quite work out. We’ll keep on trying.

Luckily, I happened upon this amazing recipe for Lentil Flour Flatbread. I was looking for a healthy way to satisfy my carb craving, and this really did the trick! I double the recipe every time, so that’s the way I’ll write it up here.

We even decided to put together a baking mix, so we can quickly put it together on week nights. All you have to do is add water!

    This recipe has me intrigued; just wondering if other dried beans can be subbed for the lentils. (I don’t care for the taste of lentils.)

  2. I have baked with milled black beans and they have a very nice color and flavor when baked. I think that would be a good substitution in this recipe. That said, I hate lentils, but I LOVE this lentil bread. So, it’s definitely worth a try.

    No raising agent at all, huh? Truly flat. I would make much thinner, though and cook in a pan or on baking stone.
