Low Carb Gluten Free Flatbread


We have the honor of sharing a low carb, gluten-free flat bread recipe with you, courtesy of Carolyn Ketchum, the best almond flour baker around.  Carolyn’s gluten-free flat bread is perfect for making sandwiches and panini.  Since we find that sandwiches are something we really miss from our carb-eating days, we were thrilled to find this recipe.  Grilled cheese sandwiches are no longer just a fantasy, neither is toast with butter, or peanut butter sandwiches.  The sandwich is back, and it’s better than ever because it’s low carb and gluten-free.  Who could ask for more?  Thank you Carolyn Ketchum for making a food dream come true.  You have our gratitude!

Julia:  You can use a pea protein powder which I have found works the same way.  Haven’t used it in this recipe (just looking it up now!)

Is there a non-dairy substitution for whey protein powder please? I can’t have dairy, and also we can’t get it in the UK! :(
Be grateful!
