Coconut Chive Flatbread
About this Recipe
By: Lisa Chilvers
Health, much like life, can feel fleeting, out of your control and insecure. We’ve all been there in some form. Like when your first child is born and you struggle to reconnect with your post-birth body. When you feel just too tired and overwhelmed to keep up with all the self care pressure, exercise, eating organic, carbon foot prints and even just meal planning and prep.
‘It’s easy to experience negativity around health when it is associated with so much discomfort and difficulty. Have you ever felt like you’ve failed at health in one way or another? I know I have. When you feel as if you’ve failed at health, you feel as though you’ve failed yourself and all the people who rely on you.
Luckily, health is not an all or nothing journey. Health runs on a beautiful continuum of highs and lows. Some days you’re going to drink lemon water, eat greens and go for a run; while other days you’re headed for a quick fix in the fast food line after picking up the kids from the 100th activity.
The key to achieving health and wellness on a daily basis is learning to incorporate go-to systems that work for you and create consistency. To live a life where you feel innately connected with your body and experience daily self-love, you need to give yourself the resources to thrive on even the busiest of days.
This is one reason why I wanted to share my incredibly versatile Coconut Chive Flatbread. It’s so freaking easy and fast to make. It’s become one of my go to recipes that help make quick eats hearty and healthy. The MVP of consistent health is healthy eating. Healthy food doesn’t have to be difficult to make – it can be delicious and accessible! This is a recipe that can create a lot of ease in the kitchen, tastes great, is inexpensive and really is healthy and tasty for everyone in the family. It’s high in fibre too and only 90 cal.
This bread is very easy to make and keeps well in the freezer.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 2 tbsp psyllium husk powder
- 1/4 cup dried chives
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for greasing)
- 1 cup water (warm)
The Steps to Take
In a mixing bowl, combine the ﬂour, psyllium husk, dried chives, baking soda and salt.
Add the oil and water. Knead with your hands and form a ball. The texture should be soft and elastic, but not sticky. If the dough is too wet, add more psyllium husk. If it is too dry, add water.
Cut the dough into the according number of recipe servings. Roll into balls.
Place one dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll it out evenly to approximately 8 inches wide. Repeat until the remaining balls of dough are shaped.
Very lightly grease a cast iron or non-stick pan and place over medium-high heat. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Grease the pan as needed and repeat until all servings are cooked. Enjoy!
Leftovers: Stack between layers of parchment paper and refrigerate in an airtight container or storage bag for up to ﬁve days. Freeze for up to one month. Reheat on a pan or in the oven for best results. Serving Size: One serving is equal to one 8-inch ﬂatbread. More flavours: Add your choice of herbs or spices to the ﬂour before mixing. Serve with: Grilled chicken, tofu, roasted chickpeas, fresh veggies and tzatziki sauce.
