Grain Free Naan (Bread)

The D-Man loves bread, but since we are grain free our options are limited.  My son asked  me last week to try to create a grain free Pita Bread, but what we ended up with was more like Naan.  Pliable enough to roll, but hearty enough to be satisfying.  I had one very happy 11 year old boy.  This recipe can be halfed, or even doubled.  Time saving tip:  I made a large batch and froze the remainder so that we have a few on hand.

1 Cup Tapioca Flour (or Arrowroot)
2 Cups Full Fat Organic Canned Coconut Milk

Directions:

In a medium sized bowl blend all ingredients with an electric hand mixer, until well combined.  The batter should be the consistency of a thick pancake batter.

Heat a skillet over low heat with a bit of pastured butter or coconut oil, just enough to prevent the batter from sticking.  NOTE:  If you choose to use a non-stick skillet please know that there are several brands that do not contain Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), which are known carcinogens.

Pour the batter in the pre-heated skillet, approximately 1/4 cup, and spread to form a circle.

NOTE:  I used an 8 inch skillet, but you can make them larger or smaller, whatever your preference.

Cook the batter until bubbles begin to form (approximately 2 minutes), then flip to cook the other side (another 1 to 2 minutes).

Place the naan on parchment paper and continue the process above until the batter is gone.
