Easy naan bread recipe is quick
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 vs. soup psyllium powder finely ground powder
- 2 vs. soup baking powder
- 1 vs. tsp sea salt
- 1 vs. soup dehydrated onion powder
- 2 cups boiling water or a little less-see the recipe
- 1/3 cup coconut oil or avocado oil for cooking
If your psyllium powder is not finely ground, grind it through a spice or coffee grinder. Psyllium allows the bread to keep its shape and not crumble. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients: coconut flour, psyllium powder, baking powder, salt and onion powder.
Add the boiling water, keeping a small amount to correct the density of the dough if necessary, mix well and let the dough rise for 5 minutes . The dough will become firmer but will remain flexible like the texture of playdough. This is where you can adjust with water or by adding psyllium powder if your dough does not have this texture.
Divide the dough in 2, then divide each portion into 4. Form a ball with your palms and flatten it on parchment paper or a plate.
- In a frying pan over medium heat, cook the loaves in the cooking oil for 7 to 8 minutes on each side. I use a spatula and a wooden spoon to turn the loaves without damaging them; once cooked, they are more solid and easier to handle.
If your loaves fall apart (depending on the brand of your flour and psyllium powder, this can happen) you can also bake the loaves on a baking sheet at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes and then brown them directly in the pan.
- Serve with tzatziki sauce or brush with garlic butter.
