Description

Healthy 4-ingredient flatbread, made with ease from white beans and coconut flour! It is grain-free, vegan, and low carb.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/3 cups (200 g) dry white beans (I used Great Northern beans)
  • Water to soak beans
  • 1 and 1/3 cups (325 mL) water
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) olive oil (more, if desired, for drizzling on top)
  • 1/2 cup (56 g) coconut flour
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons (12 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 (2.5 mL) teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Thoroughly rinse and drain the beans. Place the beans in a large bowl and add enough water to cover beans by at least 1 inch (2.5 cm). Soak 8 hours or overnight. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a blender, process the drained beans with the 1-1/3 cups (325 mL) water and oil until completely blended and smooth.
  4. Transfer the bean mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the coconut flour, baking powder and salt until completley blended.
  5. Scrape the dough (it will be thick) onto the prepared baking sheet. With a spoon or moist hands, press into an even 13×9-inch (33×22 cm) rectangle. If desired, drizzle with a few teaspoons of additional olive oil and/or sprinkle with optional rosemary.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 28 to 32 minutes until the surface appears dry with small cracks, and the outer edges are very light golden brown.
  7. Cool on a cooling rack for at least 15 minutes before cutting into pieces and serving.

Notes

Storage: Store the cooled bread in an airtight container at (cool) room temperature for 2 days, the refrigerator for 1 week, or the freezer for up to 3 months.

Quick-Soak Method for Beans: Rinse and drain the beans. Place the drained beans in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover by an inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let soak, uncovered, for 1 hour. Drain and rinse under cool water.
