Pumpkin Flatbread

I honestly couldn’t figure out the proper bread-y description for this recipe, so I randomly chose “flatbread” but you could just as easily call them crepes, naan, tortillas, blintzes, pancakes, or wraps. Depending on how thick you make these, this Paleo Pumpkin Flatbread recipe can be all of those things. These tasty “breads” are sturdy and a little stretchy so you can wrap things up in them if you want. And they’re bland enough that they can go with anything – sweet, savory, or whatever. This recipe makes about 5 or 6 thin 10″ diameter flatbreads. Cook time is about 10 minutes for each of them.

Pumpkin Flatbread

Servings 4

Total Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Nutrition Information

calories 180

carbohydrate 8g

protein 8g

fat 13g

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon(s) coconut oil or lard, tallow, or bacon grease (for greasing the pan only)
  • 11/2 cup(s) tapioca flour or starch
  • 5 large egg(s)
  • 1 can(s) pumpkin puree, organic (8 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) sea salt

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a deep mixing bowl (except the oil, which is for greasing the pan). The batter should be about the same consistency as pancake batter, and as smooth as you can make it.
  2. In the meantime, heat up a quarter of the oil (1/2 tablespoon) in a pan on medium low heat for a couple minutes until it's hot.
  3. Pour a 5th or so of the batter into the pan and spread it around with a spatula, or by picking up the pan and tipping it every which way, letting the batter even itself out. You want the batter it to be as thin as the pan will allow.
  4. Let it cook until the bottom side is slightly browned (about 5 minutes), then flip it with a large, flat spatula. Let the other side cook until it's slightly browned as well (about 3 to 5 minutes).
  5. The longer you cook them, the crispier they'll be on the outside. You can flip them a few times while they cook so that they don't get too hot and burn.

Comments

  1. Is there something I can substitute for the Tapioca Flour? I have almond flour and Coconut flour. Really would prefer not to buy another type if I can avoid it.

    1. Lee-Ann – You can try doing almond flour, but I have no idea how it’s going to turn out. Tapioca flour has that stretchy quality that almond flour doesn’t, so you may end up with more of a pancake mush than a flatbread/wrap.

    1. raquel – Sure! You could do any fruit puree – just make sure you get a lot of the water out of it before you cook these. Or you could do sweet potato puree, or mash up bananas.

    1. Elvin – I would re-think what your doctor said, since there’s plenty of evidence to disprove that eating egg yolks will do anything bad for your heart health. Plus, most of the nutrients are in the yolk, and some of the protein, and all of the fat, which is incredibly important for overall health.

  2. I had to add water to the batter, it was way too thick. I also used almond flower. They turned out great and my dogs loved them too!

  3. I made this into silver dollar pancakes instead. Yum! With just a touch of maple syrup (is that paleo?), these are amazing.

  4. Gorgeous! I added 1/2 cup water & spices (allspice, cinnamon & nutmeg). Made 1st one too thick for wrap so poured bit of raw honey & lemon juice on it warm – delicious desert.

    1. Brdigit – Generally flatbreads are meant to be eaten along with something, much like a dinner roll or other breads. So they’re not supposed to be a flavorful meal in and of themselves. Just something to add to an entree or wrap other foods up with to add flavor.

    1. Rosalynn Antenucci – Sure, the other fats to use would be pastured lard, bacon fat, tallow, olive oil, palm oil, or avocado oil.

  5. These are great! Made them with the tapioca flour and added a little cinnamon to the batter. I spread almond butter and a few raisins as a sweet snack.

    1. Natalie – To be honest, I’m not really sure. I’ve never frozen them, but if you do it, please let us know how it turns out!

  6. I made these for dinner tonight and they were a great success! I stir- fried up some veges as a filling and rolled them up like a savoury crepe. Yum!

  7. These were amazing. I’ve never used tapioca flour before but it worked perfectly. My daughter, who hates pumpkin, had no idea there was pumpkin in it. These have enough flavour to eat on their own or as a side. Wonderful!

  8. I made these for the first time last night and they are awesome! I was able to cut one in half and actually made a ham sandwich for lunch. Delicious! My next adventure will be the Irish Soda Bread…
