the recipe took a bit of working out, and the resulting ‘bread’ isn’t very bready and doesn’t have a lot of flavour. The lack of flavour is a good thing – I can well imagine it would take to herbs and spice flavours very well. Texture wise, it’s more like a cake I think, but it holds together slightly better than a cake. If you have and use a cast iron frying pan to cook this in, you get a gorgeous crust around the outside (fans of deep pan pizza crusts will love this!). I haven’t tried the ‘focaccia’ option yet, but i definitely will be now, I can imagine it’s divine. One word of warning: I wasn’t able to shape my dough into a ball, it was far too liquid for that and I wonder if it was because I used large eggs? I don’t know – i just poured it into the pan, like a cake mix, and the result was fine. I look forward to experimenting some more with this!!
A gorgeous fluffy puffy flat bread that makes a meal out of a slice and a bowl of soup. Very filling, full of fiber. Add rosemary, then brush with some butter & garlic while still warm, a bit of sea salt, and you have focaccia.
• Ingredients ¾ cup almond flour
• 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds (golden is best per more neutral flavor)
• 2 Tbsp ground psyllium husk (powder)
• 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
• 1 tsp baking powder
• ½ tsp salt2 Tbsp olive oil (extra virgin, or light)
• 2 eggs
• ½ cup full fat yogurt
Preheat oven to 400 °F.
Mix almond flour, seeds, psyllium, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.
Add eggs, olive oil, and yogurt and mix it well.
Let it sit for 5 minutes. IMPORTANT.
Form dough into a rough ball. Grease a small (8 inch) oven proof non-stick frying pan and put dough in it and press down so it is about 2 inches thick.
ALSO: don’t squash down too much…will spread on its own
Bake for approximately 25-27 minutes until golden brown.
Cut into 6 wedges are serve while still hot. Any extra freezes beautifully.
For a foccacia type: sprinkle with rosemary before baking and push rosemary into a few dimples made with your finger. After it comes out of the oven, brush with melted butter with some garlic in it. Sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Heaven.
