Gluten-Free Flatbread Recipe made from Soaked Whole Grains (yeast-free, vegan)



I'm very excited to share this super simple gluten-free flatbread recipe with you today. It is made entirely from soaked gluten-free whole grains....no flours! This is a guest post from the lovely Kim Wilson of Simply Natural Health. Kim has written a fabulous e-book entitled Good and Easy Eats where you can find more of her delicious gluten-free soaked whole grain recipes! When Kim emailed me her recipe yesterday I immediately made it. I actually already had the two main ingredients prepped and ready to go....a bowl of millet and brown basmati rice soaking on the counter (in the correct measurements). My children devoured it right away and are asking when I will be making more! I just want to add that it is imperative that you sort through your millet (before soaking) and pick out any gluten grains. Millet is almost always contaminated with gluten! Happy Baking! ~Ali 

It’s a thrilling opportunity to be able to offer a guest blog here as I’ve admired Ali and Tom’s delicious recipes, lovely photos, and family-approach to natural eating for years. It was fourteen years ago when our family began embracing whole foods as the solution to our health issues. It wasn’t an easy transition initially as my husband was an extremely picky eater and I didn’t like cooking. Because of this I was highly motivated to find the quickest and easiest ways to prepare the most nutritionally-dense and family-pleasing foods. When I focused on developing more gluten-free recipes in an effort to help our adopted son (non-verbal and with many characteristically autistic behaviors), I was excited to find that the whole food approach to gluten-free cooking provided much more satisfying results than any of the costly, unappetizing and nutritionally-devoid gluten-free products and mixes out there.

Most gluten-free folks would probably agree that a couple of the toughest foods to replace satisfactorily are bread and pizza. I’ve worked for several months on developing and refining the super-simple, extremely versatile flatbread recipe I’m sharing here. I particularly love this kind of recipe because it begins with whole grains in contrast to whole grain flours. The grains are soaked, which increases their digestibility and nutritional profile, blended, and then POURED onto a hot baking stones or skillets. No more wrestling with sticky dough or batter!


Simple, Yeast-Free, Gluten-Free Flatbread

You’ll love this simple, inexpensive recipe so much it will likely become a staple in your home!  For a little more than a dollar, and in less than half an hour, you can serve up some great tasting, wholesome flatbread.  This recipe makes 2 flatbreads (baked on baking stones and/or in cast-iron skillets)

1 cup uncooked long grain brown rice
1 cup whole uncooked millet
1 3/4 cup water
2 teaspoons honey, agave, or maple syrup
2 teaspoons raw apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup ground golden flaxseed
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder

Place the brown rice and millet into a bowl and cover with plenty of filtered water. Soak overnight or for at least 6 hours. For additional benefit, add 2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar to the soak water.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place two 10-inch cast iron skillets or pizza stones into the oven while it is preheating. Rinse and drain the soaked grains in a fine mesh strainer, then place them into a high-powered blender along with the remaining ingredients, except the baking powder. Once blended, add baking powder and blend again. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you may want to process the ingredients, wait a couple of minutes, and then process again in order for the grains to process more thoroughly.  

Remove the preheated skillets/stones from the oven and lightly oil them with a few tablespoons of olive or coconut oil. Slowly pour the batter into a thin layer in the hot skillets/stones, using a back-and-forth motion. It will begin to cook immediately. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cut into squares. This bread keeps quite well at room temperature (it doesn't get crumbly) and can even be frozen.

Variations: 
  • Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds to the soaking grains (boosts calcium content)
  • Sprinkle baking surface with sesame seeds or cornmeal before adding batter
  • Add 1/3 cup raw hulled buckwheat (in place of the millet) and increase the brown rice to 2/3 of a cup for a more tender texture 
  • The sweetener and vinegar can be left out of the recipe, if desired
Uses:
  • Simply bake and then cut or tear into pieces and serve with soup or salad
  • Cut into strips and serve with Garlic Dipping Oil
  • Top with pizza/pasta sauce and your choice of pizza toppings
  • Cut into squares for sandwich-making
  • Make into crackers. After baking at 450 degrees, lower oven temperature to 200 degrees. Cut bread into squares and return to oven for about 2 hours longer. Turn off oven and leave crackers in place until thoroughly crisp. 
  • Use as a base for a great one-dish dinner. Pour the flatbread batter into preheated oiled skillets or baking stones (bar pans and shallow casseroles work well).  Bake for 10-15 minutes and then top with any variety of toppings and heat through:
    • Top with pesto and a variety of grilled veggies
    • Top with chili and serve with Dairy-free Cheese Sauce
    • Top with steamed cauliflower and broccoli and then top with a curried sauce or the dairy-free cheese sauce mentioned above

  1. This looks amazing, thank you for the recipe!

    I'm on a cleanse in which I cannot eat yeast (along with gluten, dairy, sugar, etc) and it's so hard to find yeast free breads.

    Is it possible to make it on a baking sheet as I don't have stone/iron skillet?

    ReplyDelete
  2. I cannot wait to try this! Just to make sure I am clear, if I want to use buckwheat (the house hold favorite!) I should leave out the millet and add 1/3 c of buckwheat and an additional 2/3 c of rice?

    Thank you so much.

    I can't use rice or millet or any grass grains. I'm wondering about the variations/ substitutions list of using Buckwheat and replacing the rice with either Quinoa or Amaranth.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Can I make it in a glass casserole dish? How long should I bake it for and at what temperature? Can I use sorghum instead of millet?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am allergic to apples- is there a substitute for the apple cider? perhaps plain vinegar?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Can you substitute ground chia seeds for the flax seeds? Would you use the same amount of milled chia?

    Thanks, it sounds so good.

  10. wow! sounds delicious! I have been looking for something similar lately--and experimenting to no avail. off to make some flatbread! thanks for sharing!

    The preheated stone and skillet provide a hot surface to allow for quick cooking of the batter. You could certainly try it on a baking sheet, but I suspect the texture would be compromised a bit. Probably worth investing in a cast iron skillet or baking stone if you anticipate making it regularly.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Debra-

    Yes- when using buckwheat you end up using 1 2/3 cup total of brown rice.

    ReplyDelete
  13. My husband has problems with flaxseed meal. Do you have a suggestion for a substitution? I know some use flaxseed meal as a substitution for eggs. I've not heard of people substituting in the opposite direction, but I wondered if that would work here. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  14. This looks great, I will have to try it! I've just begun to experiment with sprouted and soaked grains. I'm glad I found this and thanks for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Helena - you can for sure use regular vinegar instead.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was wondering if you can substitute the sweetner with stevia? Or xylitol?

    This is amazing... I am always amazed at your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Can this be dehydrated rather than baked so as to keep it raw?
    Thanks!!!

  18. I recently blogged about Gluten Free Multi Grain Pancakes (with soaked grains) and they were the best pancakes I'd ever eaten. I can't wait to try this bread!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you thank you thank you!!! This is the most amazing flatbread ever! So simple to make without any added gums or yeast. It is just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sounds great! Since I need to control blood sugar, could pearled barley be successfully (and tastily!) substituted for the rice? My understanding is that barley has a lower glycemic index. Many thanks for your insight ... and for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Does anyone know if this tastes anything like bannock (Native American flatbread). I've been looking for an alternative.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Question on the baking stone - can you use a totally flat baking stone, or does it have to be one with raised sides? It seems like the batter would run off the edges of a flat one, but never having made this before maybe it's thick enough to hold its own. I don't have a cast iron skillet but I do have a flat baking stone, so I would love to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Christine-
    I would certainly give the basic recipe a try with buckwheat and quinoa (presoaked as the brown rice and millet are). I wonder if adding some sesame seeds would balance the flavors of these two non-traditional grains a bit. Or maybe even sunflower or pumpkin seeds. My mind also goes to adding a soaked legume (like mung beans). Oh- you've opened up all kinds of experimentation now!

    I haven't tried a glass baking dish. This would certainly work in terms of holding the heat as long as there aren't safety issues with preheating the empty glass dish to 450 degrees.

    I'm sorry- I forgot to respond to the tail end of your question. Yes- you can substitute sorghum for the millet.

  26. Helena-
    You could substitute white vinegar for the apple cider vinegar, but personally I don't recommend using white vinegar in foods (though it's great for cleaning purposes!). Lemon juice would be a more wholesome substitute.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Kristina-
    You can certainly substitute ground chia for the ground flax. I find you need less chia than flax in recipes (try subbing 1 tsp. of ground chia for each Tbsp. of ground flax).

    ReplyDelete
  28. Anonymous (looking for flax substitute)-
    You can substitute ground chia for the ground flax seed (1 tsp. per 1 Tbsp.). I'm haven't tried eggs in the recipe but if I did I would begin by reducing the water slightly and adding just one or two beaten eggs.

  29. NataB-
    The sweetener can easily be left out of the recipe with no great impact on the final product. I would try it this way before trying with an alternative sweetener.

    This recipe wouldn't lend itself to dehydration, though my Everyday Wholesome Eating...In the Raw recipe book has some great dehydrated cracker and crust options.

  31. Sam-
    I think you could get good results with the barley, but it wouldn't be gluten-free in that case. It would also be best to begin with unhulled barley versus pearled barley.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Erin-
    I remember making Native American flatbread with my son when we were studying the west and it seemed a fair bit like "fried dough". This has a different texture and flavor, but I'd encourage you to give it a try. It's an interesting thought though- that pouring the batter onto a preheated surface is a lot like how native flatbreads are shaped and thrown on hot stones. Hmmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wonder what I could substitute for the vinegar since I am allergic to yeast, so I can't use vinegar or soy sauce in/on my food. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Julie-

    I use the flat backing stones. When you pour the batter in a back and forth motion on the stone it begins to bake immediately and ends up holding itself in place. Also, the batter isn't so thin that it would fall off the side (as long as you don't put it too close to the edge). It's the kind of thing you need to experience it to see how it works.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just genius! Sounds wonderful and so healthy! You may wish to consider adding the words "gluten-free" to the baking powder, as some contain gluten. Rumford brand is gluten-free and aluminum-free. Hope this helps someone who is gluten intolerant.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Are you sure that is teaspoons and not Tablespoons for the Baking powder? I tried the recipe twice and both times it didn't rise properly and was gooey inside. Our baking powder is very fresh.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks Carla, good idea!

    Krista - I am not sure what's happening. I've been making Kim's recipe exactly as written and it turns out perfectly. I know she means 2 teaspoons. What kind of rice are you using? It has to be long grain brown rice, such as basmati or jasmine. Short grain or sweet rice would make it gooey.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Delicious DELICIOUS recipe!!! Loved it and the kids did, too! xoLexie

    ReplyDelete
  39. Since this is a flatbread, could it be done without any leavening agent (without the baking powder)?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I tried this recipe yesterday, and I had a couple problems, hoping you can help me! First, my batter was too runny. I can tell by Kim's picture that mine was much runnier when I poured it on the stone, and it turned out very thin, not a bit tall like hers'. I'm sure I used the correct amounts, though I did soak the grains for almost 24 hours. Do they soak up more liquid when soaked for a longer period of time?
    It also stuck to my pizza stone pretty badly, would that be because my stone hasn't yet build up a non stick surface? It's been used a handful of times. Or maybe the runny nature of the batter affected it sticking?
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I made it with quinoa/rice (soaked the same way) and it worked fine. I used two of our cast-iron Le Crueset pans and it didn't stick much at all. Thanks for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  42. PatP-
    You can substitute lemon juice for the vinegar, or leave it out entirely. It won't too greatly impact the final product.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Amy-
    I'm sorry you didn't have good results. The stone needs to be preheated very well so the batter begins to cook immediately. Well-seasoned stones or cast-iron skillets work best. Be sure to oil liberally if not. I hope you have better luck with your next try!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ali, thanks a lot for your blog. I have a question not related to this recipe. I wonder if a can substitute xanthan for the combination of psyllium husk and ground chia in all the recipes that ask for it?

    you also post about somebody else replacing xanthan for potato flour and sweet rice flour, so do you think all this replacements would work for every recipe that asks for xanthan?

    thank you

    ReplyDelete
  45. SOOOOO good. I even used a baking sheet and it turned out wonderful. didn't rise a lot because the pan that I used is pretty big but that's fine because we are going to use it for sandwiches anyway. my kids love it and now I don't have to buy processed expensive gluten free bread anymore. can't thank you enough!!!

  46. This looks amazing, I am going to pass this onto my friend who is on a candida cleanse, she cannot have yeast.

    My son was diagnosed with ADHD and for a year now we have been gluten free and casein free, it's done WONDERS for him. We are sharing our story in hopes it will help other mom's looking for alternative ways to manage ADHD.

  47. This is delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, although I soaked the grains for closer to 48 hours (simply because I didn't get to making the bread on the day intended). It ended up thinner than in the pictures (perhaps because of increased moisture in the over-soaked grains?) but the flavor is incredible - I don't miss the wheat at all - and I am extra pleased that it is texturally/structurally "normal" (as not all our egg- and wheat-free attempts have been). We are new to allergy-friendly baking (our son is allergic to wheat, egg, nuts, chickpeas, lentils, and strawberries) but this was definitely a success. Thank you, Ali AND Kim, for sharing. Your website has been a huge help to us.

  48. Wow wow wow! What a gorgeous recipe! So excited to make it except one little problem. We can't have seeds of any kind. Is the flax seed meal meant as an egg replacer? (we cant have eggs either). Any suggestions on replacing/substituting for this?

    Thanks in advance -

  50. Made this tonight. I will say that in the absence of a high powered blender, this recipe was difficult. I couldn't get the rice to smooth out. That being said, even with the crunchy bits present, the texture was still amazing, bottom as super crispy! The taste was OK, on the bland side (but that would lend itself well to a pizza crust!!!) Made the bit of leftover batter I had in the cast iron skillet and it turned out soft and pretty gross, def using the stone in the oven again next time. This is worth it if you have the right equipment.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I was wondering if you can tell me how you used it for pizza. I made it, cooking it for 10 minutes and then adding oil, cheese and toppings. I cooked it for another 20 minutes at least and it was doughy. I wondered if I should have cooked it longer at first AND if I had would it have burned with the extra time it took to melt the cheese. Any input you have would be appreciated. I made just bread with the leftover dough and it was great! Thanks for this fun, easy and healthy recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  52. We are on the Body Ecology diet and are thankful for this recipe! Haven't tried it yet... had a question. We will be substituting Millet for the rice... any tips on what else you would do to make it turn out ok? i.e. not crumbly? Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow. I cannot believe how amazing this bread is. I haven't had bread in a few years now (aside from a tiny pinch here and there, so this was incredibly delicious!! I've just recently begun really experimenting with grains and feel it's very important -- for me at least -- to try and minimize the phytic acid they contain. To that end I soaked the brown rice and millet for 24 hrs in separate jars with filtered water, 1 T each jar raw milk whey, and 1 T each jar freshly-ground buckwheat flour from raw buckwheat groats (another delicious recent discovery! Completely different from preground buckwheat flour. Buckwheat is high in phytase which breaks down the phytic acid in the millet and the rice (which are both naturally low in this enzyme).

    Other changes I made:
    1) replaced olive oil in the recipe with pastured pork lard
    2) reduced water to 1.5 cups or slightly under bc of the longer soaking time
    3) uses my Cuisinart 7-cup food processor to blend everything
    4) used my giant 15" iron skillet (which is well seasoned) and melted plenty of lard in the bottom during preheating
    5) sprinkled sesame seeds in the skillet first before pouring in the batter, and then poppy seeds on the top surface which I thought would add some variety & interest

    The bottom crust is rich and oily and the bread is just like a good focaccia! I think that would actually be a better name for this bread.

    I have signed up for Kim's newsletter and can't wait to get the sandwich bread recipe and probably some ebooks down the road! (would get them ASAP if they came as an iPhone app :)

    I know this will be incredible with garlic butter or garlic oil. And am already envisioning making it with smashed roasted garlic cloves stuck in the top....maybe some good olives too... Yum yum

  54. I had only 1/4 cup of brown rice so I completed the rest with 1/4 cup of lentils, 1/4 cup split peas and 1/4 cup of buckwheat and it came out amazing! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!

  55. Thank you for this recipe. I'm recovering from PI IBS and have had to quickly educate myself about how to eat GF, soy free, no night shades etc. etc. I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out wonderful. My family and I finished it every bite the same day it came out of the oven! I now play with the recipe and found now have two more flavors to offer at our table. I add fresh chopped rosemary & sea salt crystals to the hot cast iron pan before pouring the batter on it. YUM! The other version has diced greek olives folded & a little rosemary into the batter before pouring onto the hot pan. Both of these versions are wonderful with a slice of your favorite cheese. We also toast these little gems the next day. I am so grateful to be enjoying bread again!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. This recipe is amazing! I made a "half" recipe to see how we liked it and I baked the 'half' recipe in my Pampered Chef Large Bar Stoneware pan... the batter was quite thin... It turned out fantastic and we really like the 'thin' flatbread... I have so many ideas circling in my mind of ways to change it around etc... thin crust pizza, garlic and herb... Mexican w/chili powder, coriander and cumin... the variety is endless. Thank you, thank you, thank you... I know I won't be buying the $5/loaf of Millet Flax bread now :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Well, I made the recipe, and the taste is quite good. My only complaint is that although I basically liquified the batter, there are still little pieces of the grains that making chewing hard (especially if you have fragile teeth such as I do). Can the grains be substituted with rice and millet flour? Or does the bread lose some of its "body" then?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I tried out this recipe, but I don't have a vitamix, so I tried doing it as best as I could. I first blended up all the soaked grains as well as I could, then added a little bit of water at a time, blending it first until I had a paste, then until I had a thick batter, and then until I had a runnier batter, and then added the rest of the required water. But it was still very runny, much runnier than in your picture. The result was a bread that tasted good, but was pretty crumbly and cracked a lot. Did anyone else who tried this without a vitamix have success making a sandwich bread?

    ReplyDelete
  59. This maybe a dumb question, but I was wondering if the ACV called for in the recipe is that which you use in soaking, or in addition to any used in soaking.

  60. I first "discovered" this recipe back in Oct... I have made it dozens of times since then! I soak the grains nearly 24 hrs. Then grind them with the water and let the batter ferment on the bench [covered w/cloth] for 24-36 hrs.

    I make 1 1/4 times the original recipe and bake it in 2 large (10x15") stoneware bar pans... I grease them and then totally cover the bottom of the pan with un-hulled sesame seeds... when baking, I rotate the pans half way through - oh and I bake them for 25-30 min. The Sesame seeds become nicely toasted and the bread is a bit crispy and very delicious.

    The other thing I do is prepare the pans first... then stir in the liquid ingredients. I then QUICKLY WHISK IN THE DRY INGREDIENTS and IMMEDIATELY pour the "thin" batter into the pans - I discovered that if I wait, it becomes TOO THICK from the flax seed and is extremely difficult to spread out without disrupting the Sesame seeds.

    Thank you so very much for this absolutely delicious flat bread recipe... I want to add some roasted garlic one of these times and maybe some Oregano and Basil for an Italian version of flat bread....

    With Much Grateful Appreciation,
    Marie

  61. This looks great Kim! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I'll let you know how it turns out.

  62. I read through the comments and was surprised to see that several folks had batter that was too runny. Mine was too dry and thick, oddly enough. Can I just add water if that happens again? That might seem obvious I guess, but often when it comes to cooking, what seems obvious to me is actually the exact wrong thing to do, so I figure it's always good to ask.

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I love it! Even though my batter was a little too thick, I was still able to flatten it out, and it came out delicious. I've been aching for something to pair with soups and chilis that doesn't have xanthan gum in it, and this is exactly what I need! Many many thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  63. aussiegirl, I'd like to try it your way. Do you just soak the grains in 1 3/4 cup water? And then do you add any more water? Also, I don't have flax seeds, how much chia seeds should I use to replace them?
    Thanks! Oh, I was also unclear on whether the recipe was listing the acv to soak with or add to everything later.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Unknown: This is my adaptation to the recipe and this amount will make 2 large stoneware bar pans of flat bread or equivalent. Unfortunately, I have never used Chia seed in a recipe so I have no idea how much to use in place of the ground flax seed.

    Aussiegirl’s adaptation:

    1 ¼ c. Brown Rice
    1 ¼ c. Millet
    Filtered water to well cover by several inches [at least 4 c.].

    Soak 24 hours, drain, rinse, drain [strainer must be super fine hole or use muslin or cheesecloth as the Millet is small]

    Pre-heat the oven to 450

    Into a heavy duty blender put:
    Drained rice/millet
    2 ¼ c. water
    Cover and grind to smooth batter. Pour into a bowl, cover and let sit on the bench for another 24 hrs [8-12 hr. is better than none] **This fermenting makes it much more easily digestible.

    **BEFORE YOU PUT ANYTHING ELSE INTO THE GROUND RICE/MILLET** Prepare 2 large bar pans – 10 x 15” [I use stoneware] or equivalent iron skillets. Grease them well and if desired, sprinkle heavily with Un-hulled Sesame Seed – super good in my opinion :)

    Add to the ground rice/millet and stir well:
    2 tsp. Agave or honey or Maple Syrup
    1 Tbs. Apple Cider Vinegar
    4 Tbs. EVOO
    1 ¾ tsp. salt
    4 tsp. Baking Powder

    JUST BEFORE POURING INTO BAKING PANS:
    Whisk in ½ c. ground Flax Seed till smooth

    Pour *quickly* into the prepared pans… the reason for the “hurry” is that if you wait, the batter gets THICK from the Flax seed and it’s not the easiest to spread out – especially if you are using the sesame seeds on the bottom of the pans. Pouring quickly, allows the batter to spread out with a gentle tilting of the pans.

    Put into the pre heated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Rotate pans from top to bottom and bottom to top and bake another 15 minutes. Batter will have shrunk from the sides of the pans some and be golden on top.

    Allow to cool and cut into desired shapes – more squarish for sandwiches or long rectangles for spreading with nut butters etc.

    Once completely cooled, store in a freezer Zip Lock bag in the refrigerator. Remove as needed and toast before using. If you like chewy bread, toast for a longer time.

    It keeps for me up to 2 weeks in the fridge… My body is VERY happy when I eat this bread…

  65. Hi,
    i made this but at first I did not really like the flavour. I used a bit less salt, mind you. And because I did not quite have the required amount of oil I put in a bit of plain yogurt. Anyway, the next day and the second day, it seemed to taste much better and I then I quite enjoyed the rest of it with beans and a salad. I will make it again, experimenting with sunbstituting other grains in place of the rice and maybe I will add some herbs to see whatflavours come up. Thanks
