 I love seeing what other family members whom I don’t see very often have as their breakfast staples. 

My grandma is currently staying with us at the moment and for her (and many Persian families), a standard breakfast would be flatbread bought fresh that morning (there is no such thing as day old bread in her household!), feta cheese and unsalted butter. You’d rarely see juice or milk make an appearance but instead, have hot, simmered tea (usually made on the stovetop) and for those with a sweet tooth, some sugar cubes. 

Since her arrival, she’s had some complications with her health and her most recent blood test indicated higher than normal levels of cholesterol. While she was advised to consider taking a supplement and potentially medication, I thought it would be beneficial to, for a month at least, try using the healing powers of certain foods to see if there could be a positive impact made.

After some research, I found that certain foods actually help lower cholesterol- These include legumes, oats, tofu and heart healthy fats like salmon and avocado. I’ll keep you guys updated in a few weeks time after her next blood test!

I’m currently about to enter Week 3 of the Reader’s Diet Challenge and to be honest, it’s been going pretty smoothly. Much of the credit must go to having weekends off and having a newfound affair with bananas. Even though I have weekends off, last Saturday morning I joined my mum and grandma for breakfast but brought along some easy Paleo flatbread, inspired by their Persian variety they were enjoying. 

I’ve seen numerous recipes for a Paleo flatbreads and this is just my own version. Some are more ‘egg like’ yet others are far too dense which make it more like a ‘bread’ but crumbles once you try to fold it. My version is more towards the ‘egg like’ side which suits me fine because I used them as a vehicle for smoked salmon and avocado wraps. 

Does this Paleo version taste exactly like the Persian variety my mum and grandma were eating? Most definitely not. However, they have a chewy texture, can be folded up to make flatbread rolls and are the perfect vehicle to well…anything.

These flatbreads are ridiculously easy to whip up. You do them over a stovetop but the key here is to ensure you cover the frying pan and cook on low heat- Doing this results in the perfect crispy outside and easy flipping. As mentioned, THREE ingredients are needed (spices don’t count and are optional). These are perfect for those watching their carbohydrate or calorie intake, or don’t care much for sandwiches or wraps but want to use it as a vehicle to the good stuff…like this dip or this nut butter

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted
  2. 2 tsp homemade paleo Baking Powder (use standard if not strictly paleo)*
  3. 12 egg whites (not from a carton)
  4. 1 tsp sea salt
  5. Herbs of choice (I've used basil, red pepper flakes, garlic powder and rosemary before)
  6. Coconut oil/cooking spray
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg whites and whisk lightly. Add the coconut flour, baking powder, salt and any other spices and whisk immediately to avoid clumping. Set aside.
  2. Coat a large frying pan with oil and on low heat, allow to heat up completely. Once hot, pour 1/4 of the mixture into the pan and cover immediately. Once bubbles start to appear on the edges, remove cover and flip and cook for 1-2 minutes. Repeat the process until you have four, large flatbreads.
  3. Allow to cool completely before using it as a wrap.
Notes
  1. Baking powder isn't technically paleo so a simple way to recreate a substitute is to combine baking soda and lemon juice- for this recipe use 1/2 tsp baking soda with 1 T lemon juice.
  2. Flatbreads can be refrigerated for up to a week. Freezing them is not recommended, unless you heat them up again in the pan.

  1. I love a good vehicle, for things like guacamole and hummus or whatever floats ya boat a good vehicle is seriously not to be underrated! These look so delicious too! Hope your grandma is feeling better soon!

  2. Is there something I can use to either replace the egg whites or something to replace maybe half of them? love that you used coconut flour!

  3. I’m totally on board with how easy these flatbreads are to make! Forget going out and buying daily bread…I can just make it each morning. I’ve never tried making flatbreads like this, so I think it needs to happen. I hope Grandma Arman’s health is on the up and up…you’re such a good grandson!

  4. This sounds really cool and I’m curious! Not sure what I’d do with all the leftover yolks but I’m sure I’d think of something. I do normally use baking powder if I need it for pancakes or muffins, but neat trick to make your own 🙂

  5. Yum! I go through phases of eating all the wraps, so I’m totally going to hold on this for the next time I have a craving. I love that it is so simple and these are much less sketchy than the GF wraps I usually buy at the store 🙂

  6. Absolutely can’t wait to try these! I almost thought that bottom photo was of pizza haha – so colorful and delicious looking with the spices.

  7. Oh man this looks so good? Why not egg whites from a carton though? I literally just bought a whole pack from Costco I want to use up!

      1. I made these with carton egg whites and it’s true they were a little flat but that was totally fine with me since I used them like a tortilla .. except it was a tad too salty for me so next time I think I would use 1/4 tsp of sea salt only

  8. I have been looking for more easy recipes to use up this giant bag of coconut flour I recently bought at a wholesale store. These look great! And I think it’s very nice you were even inspired to make them to improve the diet of your grandmother because you’re watching out for her health concerns. 🙂

  9. DUDE THIS IS A GIGI RECIPE RIGHT HERE!!!!!! I told you I am adding eggs back into my life and the “tiredness” can just suck it, right?!?!?!?! Well I am going to start with this.. Okay, I lied, I started with the waffles I made last week, but whatever, this has 12 egg whites – LOL so that’s the true test! I really wanted to invite you over for brunch today too by the way 🙁

  10. I think I told you about that time I ate a piece of Kraft cheese and then went to a doc appointment, where the doc told me I had high cholesterol. Oops. It’s a good thing I love healthy foods so much now— I do believe that nutrition can play an essential role in healing! Too bad my general cluelessness can’t be healed…

  11. I love easy recipes like this. I am all about only a few ingredients. And these look REALLY good and pretty too. I’ve never had any cholesterol problems or issues- I am, however, very anemic. I have been for years- it’s definitely been an issues and has impacted my life, and unfortunately, that is something that diet only cannot help with. Although I DO believe diet plays a huge role in healing- I also believe that once you get past a certain point, other interventions might be necessary as well (for me I can only take a specific supplement IN ADDITION to a specific diet..).

  12. I love flatbread. I’ve made it with protein powder before too—actually came out pretty well! I would actually prefer being given flatbread to pasta. like give me a bowl of marinara sauce and a few pieces of flatbread and I am so happy.

      1. Try it on Salad instead of dressing
        When I go to Subway I have a salad with chicken and the marinara on the side( not very often) I’m on a low carb diet.

  13. Awesome! Honestly, I’m not sure if my family will appreciate me stealing all their egg-whites, but…who knows? They might not notice… >:)

  14. Do you believe that diet and nutrition can play a vital role in healing? – Hell Yizzle!
    I hope your Grandma gets some good results after you giving her some healthy foods 🙂
    And these look great Arman!

  15. I do not only believe that diet and nutrition play a vital role in healing, I see proof in this considering my own story.
    I like the idea of that flatbread. But what the hell are you doing with 12 egg yolks?

        1. Hi Jennifer! I don’t really like using whole eggs for this as it gives it a firmer less flatbread like texture- I haven’t tried it but I’d use 6 eggs and perhaps 1/2 cup dairy free milk to make it thinner 🙂

  17. You sold me on three ingredients! This looks yummy, I can’t wait to try it. I’m a new food blogger and found you on a link party. I love meeting other bloggers, especially those in other countries. I’ve followed your social sites and hope we can connect on those. Can’t wait to read more of your blog.

  18. Hi there, could you use almond flour instead? It doesn’t bother me as much as coconut flour… love this easy recipe!

  19. Don’t stress about the cholesterol – medicine is 20 years behind the science, and science says cholesterol is not a cause of any health issues… Instead high sugar, low fat diets are causing inflammation that cause arterial disease :). I have a chesterol rating really high, and have no issues with arterial plaque at all 🙂

    1. I’ agree with Cate on the cholesterol issue.i am a low carber my self and are looking forward to making these tomorrow.thanks for a easy indredient recipe.do they taste eggy at All ? Thanks again

  20. Hey there! This sounds amazing minus using 12 egg whites — that’s a massive amount of eggs to yield 4 breads, don’t you think? Curious if you’ve tried any other variations that work. I like the sound of chewy/crispy flatbread (we used to eat a bunch of naan and pita around here). Thanks! H

    1. Hey Heather 🙂 It may seem like that, but I generally only eat 1 at a time- They make a great, large wrap- I’ve been able to use them as mock sandwich bread! For a more pita/naan like bread- Use whole eggs (try 2 eggs + 2 T coconut flour and cook on low heat covered- flip and repeat). 🙂

  21. Hi,
    If you use all eggs instead of just whites, how many eggs do you use? Also, what do you mean by eggs “not from cartons.”
    Thank you for the recipe.

    Best,
    Elizabeth

    1. Hi Elizabeth! I’ve tried this with cartoned egg whites and they turned really fat! If you use all eggs, 2 eggs + 1 tablespoon of coconut flour + any spices make delicious sized buns- Hamburger sized 🙂

  22. I really want to try this recipe but am not a fan of coconut at all! Can you taste any coconut in the final recipe?

  23. What’s the go with ‘egg whites not from a carton?’ I’ve never heard of that. Is it some kind of tinned dry, powdered product? It it is, I’d probably prefer to use the real thing and keep the yolks in. (Do you know what it’s called in Australia? So many American recipes specify some brand names product which you can’t get out here. If they included a description or list of ingredients it would be easier to track down.)

    I’m going to give this a go next time I have a craving for bread. Only I’ll have to replace some ingredients as I can’t have coconut. I’m guessing normal plain flour would work.

    I can’t have a heap of foods now so a fresh bread that doesn’t need a spread would be great. (Out of the diet so far is milk, butter, cream, coconut, coconut milk/cream, chocolate, yoghurt, custard, peaches, mangoes, watermelon and way too many green vegetables. Weird combination, huh?)

    I think I would add garlic, olive oil and sesame seeds- to remind me of the Lebanese garlic pizza I used to buy for lunch when I worked in Lakemba (the middle east of Sydney).

    Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    1. Hi Lou! It’s pretty much egg whites without the yolk in a high proportion, it’s available in supermarkets. In Australia, I think our brand is pure eggs? Not sure, but honestly it’s best (and cheaper!) to use standard eggs. Do you have rolled oats? IF you grind them up, they work fantastically.

      …That diet actually sounda delicious- Custard! Yum! Stay tuned for a recipe very similar to that! 😉

  24. I knew you were awesome and now you have just confirmed it! I LOVE PERSIAN FOOD! I miss Sangak and Barbari bread and this looks like a great flat bread to eat with feta and cucumbers or wrap it around some Koobideh! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  25. My son has an egg allergy so was wondering if you could make this recipe with some kind of egg replacer? Some times when I use a flax egg it doesn’t turn ouT.

  26. Hi Arman 🙂 I found this recipe on Pinterest and am excited to try it out. My husband and I have high cholesterol and I’m trying (really trying) to cook in a healthier way. Cheers!

  27. This looks great! Question, would it work just as well with the whole egg? Or is there something special about just using the whites?
    Thanks?

  28. You can bake these too! I poured the batter in a greased 12 by 9 pan. (You could pour over greased aluminum foil too.) I cut into fourths when it came out and it was awesome! Thanks for the recpie!!

  29. Love these! So easy to make! I (accidentally) put coconut flour in with egg yolks, then added baking soda, chili powder & sea salt. Cooked them the same way, their just as wonderful!

  30. Just found these on Pinterest and had to try them immediately! SO good! Thank you! I made them added cheese (I’m LCHF, not Paleo), avacado, and green onion. Yep, this one’s a keeper!

  31. I am having a hard time with mine sticking to the pan. Any ideas on why this might be? I’m using olive oil and I have it on low. Am I maybe just not using enough oil? Is there supposed to be a “lake of oil” or is it just supposed to be coated? I’m loving the flavor (made mine with rosemary) but I’m frustrated by the sticking since it usually results in my finished flat bread cracking and tearing.

  32. Okay important question. I see coconut flour in most of your recipes and they look wonderful and clearly you have lucky with coconut flour, but every time I use it the finished product is awful. Every single time. So I was wondering what type you use, what brand, and if you have had bad experiences. I’m just so confused as to why it doesn’t work for me (it does if I use a few tablespoons and other types of flour but alone it doesn’t work at all).

    Thank you!
    Lindsey

  33. Hmmmn…. Sounds like it would go great with some tandoori pulled chicken, lol. Funny thing about this post, a big reason I starts perusing your blog was for recipes for my great aunt. My folks and I take care of her health. She has end stage liver disease, plus some other factors. Our first line of health arsenal is nutrition; we make nearly all of her meals, kinda like a healthy meals-on-wheels deal. She had to very recently make a switch from a simply liver-healthy diet to liver-healthy/gluten-free/sugar-free. Though this means no more homemade tortillas, I’m pleased to announce her liver is In the best shape ever in 5 years. How is your grandmother doing now? More importantly, was this recipe grandma-approved, lol?

    If you ever want to talk nutrition and healing, give a holler 🙂

      1. Ahhhhh, that explains why this first time was an epic fail whale! I just kept mixing in flour absentmindedly, and they went from paleo wraps to paleo dog treats. Chips and Salsa say thank you :-p

  34. Oh I really hope you can help reduce your grandma’s high cholesterol – that would be so awesome! My grandma was diagnosed with diabetes and really did turn her reverse it a whole lot with food so I am taking this as a sign to try and help her more with it. Those flatbreads are such a great idea for anyone watching their intake.

  35. I was so surprised to see that these were made with coconut flour! I looooove coconut flour and try to cook with it often, but not many recipes call for it, haha. Really looking forward to giving this recipe a try, thanks for sharing <3

  36. Hey! This recipe looks great! Can’t wait to try! Question, you might have already answered this sorry, but why do you specificly say egg whites not from a carton? Thansk!
