 It’s funny how in one culture a certain food eaten at a certain time is considered preposterous. 

Last week, I mentioned how my grandma in Iran would have the same breakfast of Persian flatbread with feta cheese and butter. This Persian flatbread is a fine milled, stone oven baked bread which is a blend of wholewheat and white flours. That’s it. No options.

A few weeks ago, I was enjoying breakfast with my grandma and suggested she stray away from her usual flatbread (well, Australia’s poor excuse for it) and try some cinnamon raisin bread with butter. I rarely buy this bread because it really lacks any cinnamon flavour and has like, FIVE raisins in the whole loaf. However, as I was at mum’s, her fridge = My fridge. (Please note- This statement was self proclaimed)

You guys, you should have seen the look my grandma gave me! It’s as though I asked her to cut carbs for a day. She then proceeded to tell me that dessert for breakfast is unacceptable. Oh man, if only she’s seen what some of my more typical breakfasts look like…Like brownies and chicken. Anyway, she refused and said she would enjoy a slice in the afternoon at a more acceptable hour. I told her it was afternoon somewhere in the world and then she told me to respect my elders. 

Lesson learnt. 

I made this paleo cinnamon raisin flatbread after having success with the original version. As mentioned in that post, this ‘flatbread’ is NOT like a slice of cafe style raisin bread you may or may not be accustomed to. It is more of a ‘wrap’ texture and depending on whether you choose to use whole eggs or just the whites, can be quite airy. Saying that, it is still delicious lightly toasted with butter or as I did during my Paleo challenge, use it as the most delicious wrap I think I have ever made! (Recipe to come- It’s a good one, guys!).

The ingredient list has an almost identical base to the original flatbread but this time, the addition of cinnamon, raisins and the optional coconut sugar. This was without a doubt the best part- No need to be scouting out the slice which has all the raisins in it- You be the judge. In just five minutes, you’ve got a bread like base ready for the butter, the fillings or even as it is. 

Breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner- You be the judge. This four ingredient Paleo Cinnamon Raisin flatbread doesn’t discriminate. 

Just don’t tell my grandma. Although my mum was the one who used to chase me with a wooden spoon– She had to learn it from somewhere!

  5. 2 T - 1/4 cup coconut sugar (Can sub for any granulated sweetener)
  6. 1 T cinnamon
  7. 1/4 cup+ raisins
  8. Coconut oil cooking spray
Instructions

  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 as a wrap, or top immediately with butter and extra cinnamon.
Notes
  1. aking 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. you’re amazing. this looks awesome, too! i think of cinnamon raisin flatbread more as a breakfast than a dessert… desserts are cookies, cake, and ice cream! though you eat those for breakfast, too lol

  2. She would be horrified by my breakfasts then, hahaha!
    Cinnamon raisin is definitely NOT dessert. But when I do the cinnamon raisin thing, I don’t like a lot of raisins…so 5 raisins would be okay 😉 But Cinnamon…please load the whole bottle in!

  3. I used to eat cinnamon raison bagels every day for breakfast – my favorite!!! This flatbread sounds really good.
    Mostly I loved the story about your grandma – funny that she doesn’t want to deviate at all:)

  4. I smell breakfast tacos brewing. Obviously filled with crushed nuts instead of ground beef, and jelly/nut butter/chopped fruit in place of the fixin’s! Being GF, I refuse to pay an arm and a leg for bread, so this is flatbread is gonna happen x10, with x2 being inhaled in one sitting and x8 being frozen to be reheated and consumed two hours later. What can I say. I LIKE BREAD.

          1. I actually can’t have egg (I’ll spare you the dirty details) and was going to use an egg substitute instead, but do not fret- this flatbread is only a vessel for half a jar of almond butter! Not even joking. This is why I can barely afford these college years.

  5. I looooooove cinnamon raisin bread, and I’m totally missing the one from the local bakery my mom and I love in New York. You’ll see it in my post tomorrow, but my friends think I’m the devil for liking raisins. I could do worse things in this world.
    I just love how cinnamon raisin bread could be eaten as breakfast (with butter or nut butter) OR dessert (…with butter or nut butter or NUTELLA!).

  6. Your grandmother sounds adorable…and hilarious! While I used to associate certain foods with breakfast, that went out the window when I did Whole30. After a few days of eating chicken for breakfast, anything goes now! Lately I’ve been on a smoothie kick- it’s the only thing that sounds good to me when I wake up so I’m just rolling with it!

    You didn’t finish your story- did your grandma enjoy the flatbread (when she eventually ate it)??

  8. Cravings. Serious raisin bread cravings right here because this looks so good. And the funniest part is I claim not liking raisins much. Though … I’ve always been a HUGE fan of “Rosinenbrötchen” and yes – shock your grandma 😉 – they were part of breakfast. If you’d tried to sell me one of those as dessert I’d have probably chased you with a shoe [essentially my mum’s version of the wooden spoon].

  9. Dude! These flatbreads that you’ve been making look incredible, Arman. I totally need to get in the kitchen and give these a shot. But more importantly, I love how grandma put you in your place. There must be like a secret grandma conference somewhere every year where they teach grandma’s how to put insolent grandkids back into their places. And I’m guessing they don’t serve this delicious flatbread for breakfast at said conference. 🙂

  10. PUhaha! respect our elders we must ;). And I know exactly what you are referring to – breads that claim they have these ingredients but they are no where to be found or tasted! 5 raisins..haha that’s awesome. I seriously need you to come over and make this for me!

  11. These look great! What is the difference when you use 12 whole eggs or egg whites. Also, can you do 6 whole eggs/6 egg whites? Thank you for all of these recipes!

    1. Hey Catherine! If you use full eggs, I found them to be more dense than fluffy which made it harder to wrap- then again, my sister loved it that way, she put it in the toaster!

      Definitely try 6 full eggs/6 whites- Let me know how it goes- Thanks for your kind words 🙂

  13. The batter is very thin. I followed the instructions exactly. Should there be more than a 1/4 cup of coconut flour?

    1. Hi Maria! I made it work with the 1/4 cup- If it’s still thin, slowly add an extra tablespoon until your desired thickness or use full eggs- they make a much firmer batter! Some coconut flours are much less malleable than others which is probably the reason!

  14. Really love the coconut flour usage here, Arman. It can definitely be a tricky flour to use but the eggs and baking powder you have in here seem to do the trick. Awesome recipe!

  15. Dear Arman, I love the idea of raisin flatbread. Who doesn’t love cinnamon raisin bread…it’s the best in the morning with coffee. I am thinking this would be wonderful with tuna salad. Take care my friend, Catherine

    1. OH no sorry Becky! You need to use a very large pan for it to be crepe like- I have a recipe for 3 ingredient paleo pizza bases- Sub the savory herbs for raisins and it should work well- The coconut flour is of a higher proportion 🙂

  16. I am trying out this recipe for the first time. I am concerned about the dozen eggs in one recipe. Is this for sure, I will need that much egg!

  17. Hello, I have a question about the recipe. You said eggs not from the carton not sure what you mean? Does it mean use fresh eggs not liquid eggs?
