Looking for a delicious paleo flatbread to scoop up some curry? This grain-free recipe rivals regular naan in both texture and flavor!
I’ve cracked the code on paleo naan! This grain-free flatbread is soft and chewy just like its gluten-laden counterparts, and thanks to the yeast, its flavor is really authentic. I’m actually a little bit worried about having figured out this recipe, because I now want it with every single meal. It’s going to take a lot of restraint to not just eat this instead of vegetables!
I’d never considered making a yeasted paleo flatbread before, partly because yeast can be time-consuming and partly because I had heard that gluten-free doughs don’t rise as well. And while that may be true, I was pretty excited about how well this dough rose (see the photos near the end of the post for evidence). Also, since this bread just needs one quick, 45-minute rise, it’s not totally insane to make on a weeknight.
I got the idea for this bread when I saw Heather’s perfect paleo flatbread recipe on Cook It Up Paleo. Her recipe calls for yeast, but doesn’t have you wait for the dough to rise. I couldn’t try her recipe as-is because it calls for coconut flour (I’m allergic to coconut), so I decided to play around with it a bit.
