The Recipe How-To
Now comes the most exciting part- making the flatbread wraps! This recipe is super easy and requires only 5 ingredients. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of gluten-free flour, 3/4 cup tapioca starch, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. (If you don’t have tapioca starch, you can use cornstarch.)
Next, add 2 teaspoons of psyllium husk (a binding agent that acts like gluten) and stir until everything is combined. Then, add one cup of warm water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil or melted coconut oil to the flour mixture. Mix with a spoon until it forms a soft dough.
Knead the dough with clean hands on a floured surface for about 1 minute. Divide the dough into about 6-8 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Flatten each ball with your hands or rolling pin to form thin circles.
Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the flatbread circle to cook for around 1 minute until bubbles form on top then flip it over to cook for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat the process for each flatbread roll.
Your soft gluten-free flatbread wraps are now ready for use as sandwich wraps, pita bread, flour tortillas or taco shells!
Substitutions and Variations
The beauty of this 5-ingredient gluten-free flatbread recipe is that it’s versatile and can be customized to your liking!
– Flour Substitutions: In place of the gluten-free flour, you can use almond flour, coconut flour or a mix of both. If using almond flour, reduce the amount of tapioca starch to 1/4 cup. Keep in mind that different flours absorb water differently, so you may need to adjust the amount of water accordingly.
– Dairy-free Option: If you are dairy-free, you can replace the Greek yogurt with an equal amount of dairy-free yogurt such as soy yogurt or coconut yogurt.
– No Yeast: This flatbread is made without yeast, making it a quick and easy recipe. However, if you prefer to use yeast, you can replace the baking powder with 1 teaspoon instant yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar. Let it sit for 10 minutes before adding the wet ingredients.
– Pita Bread/Taco Shells/Pizza Crust Option: Divide the dough into smaller portions and roll them out thinner for pita bread or taco shells. Alternatively, shape them into a larger circle for a thin crust pizza base.
– Spice it Up: Add more flavor to your flatbread by adding seasoning such as garlic powder, dried herbs such as rosemary or thyme or even za’atar spice blend. Simply add them to the flour mixture before adding the wet ingredients.
Experiment with these substitutions and variations to create your perfect gluten-free flatbread!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
One of the best things about these gluten-free flatbread wraps is that they can be made ahead of time and stored for future use. This means you can have a quick meal or snack whenever inspiration strikes.
To make ahead, simply wrap the cooked flatbreads in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store them in the refrigerator for up to three days. Alternatively, you can store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two months.
When ready to reheat, remove the flatbreads from the fridge or freezer and let them come to room temperature. You can then choose to heat them up on a baking sheet in the oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes, or in a non-stick pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes per side.
The great thing about these flatbreads is that they stay soft and pliable when reheated, so you’ll feel like you’re eating freshly made bread every time. Plus, they pair well with a variety of fillings and toppings, so you can get creative with your meals.

Tips for Perfect Results
Preparing gluten-free flatbread wraps may seem daunting for some, but with a little bit of effort and the right techniques, you can achieve tasty results. Here are some tips to ensure that your flatbreads come out perfect every time.
Firstly, using warm water is essential when making the dough. Warm water allows the ingredients, mainly the tapioca starch, to combine correctly and create an ideal texture for the dough. Make sure that you don’t use boiling water; lukewarm temperature is enough or tepid water.
Secondly, mix the ingredients well in one bowl. There’s no need for any fancy equipment or mixer; use your hands to ensure that all ingredients are well combined.
Thirdly, let the dough rest for a few minutes. It may be tempting to start rolling it out right away, but allowing the dough to rest can allow the tapioca starch absorb water, which makes it easier to roll out later on.
Fourthly, be mindful of how much flour you use when rolling out the dough so that it won’t be overly dry or sticky. Using almond flour or coconut flour in addition to your gluten-free flour mix may help prevent sticking and create a softer texture.
Fifthly, the cooking temperature is crucial when making gluten-free flatbreads as they tend to over-brown or even burn quickly because of their lack of gluten. Thus, cooking them on medium-low heat should do the trick.
Lastly, do not overcook them as dryness and crumbliness might be expected after overcooking. When bubbles appear on top of the flatbread soon after placing it in the pan just flip it so that this side will cook for only about 20 – 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side for an equal amount of time until they become golden brown.
By following these tips, you’ll have delicious gluten-free flatbread wraps that will make any meal satisfying without taking too much time preparing them.
In conclusion, the Quick and Easy Gluten Free Flat Bread Wraps recipe is an ideal choice for those who want a healthy, organic, gluten-free and dairy-free option. This recipe combines simple ingredients like almond flour, tapioca starch, psyllium husk, and Greek yogurt to create a soft, delicious flatbread which can be used to make sandwich wraps, pita bread or even flatbread pizza in just 20 minutes. This free-of-yeast and easy-to-make flatbread will satisfy your craving for bread without causing any adverse health effects.
Furthermore, the recipe offers substitutions and variations that allow you to customize it based on your preference. You can experiment with different flours or add herbs and spices to make it more flavorful. The versatility of this recipe makes it perfect for everyone, regardless of their dietary restrictions.
Most importantly, the recipe promotes the use of clean ingredients that are good for your body – ingredients like almond flour are known to be rich in protein and fiber.
