What is xylitol?
Easy Gluten Free Flatbread
This easy gluten free flatbread is an absolute staple in our house. I got the idea for this bread from another blogger called Eating with Purpose, but I tweaked the recipe a bit until I could get the kids to love it as much as I do.
Because of the brown rice flour this would make this recipe Kaufmann 2 (for those of you trying to follow Doug Kaufmann’s diet). Kids can find it hard to transition from commercial white bread to a healthier bread but not with this recipe! It only takes 8 minutes in the oven and about 5 minutes to throw together. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Use your imagination as you can do almost anything with this bread. We mostly use it to dip in olive oil and spices along side our gluten free pasta dishes and soups. You can also use it for sandwiches as well.

Xylitol is derived from the birch tree, it works well as a sugar substitute in baking and has been shown to have some anti-fungal properties. To me, unlike Stevia (also a healthy sugar substitute) it tastes exactly like sugar! I haven’t seen it in Walmart or mainstream groceries yet but I buy mine at whole foods. You can also order it online if you don’t have a whole foods near by. Thanks for writing.
Amazing recipe…..this was a total life-saver in my home as my son was recently diagnosed as wheat and soy intolerant. We couldnt find a bread that we liked, and truly life without bread is difficult. We now make this fabulous flatbread for sandwiches or just to nibble on. We’ve made it garlicky and cinnamon bread and will be using the base as a pizza crust this weekend. Thank you Erin Porter!
Glad you like it Kelly! We make this bread in our house every week. We can’t live without bread either! 🙂
Thank you so much for the bread recipe. Can hardly wait to try it. Gloria
Hi Gloria! I hope you love it! 🙂 Erin
We just tried this recipe for the first time, and it is ahh-mazing! Wow, I love the texture and flavor! We added a little bit of rosemary and sea salt on top and that was tasty too! This will help me so much when I get bread cravings. And it’s so versatile! Thank you so much for coming up with this awesome recipe!!!
Thanks Selena – We tried it with rosemary lately too, as well as garlic salt and olive oil and it was amazing…going to do a post on it soon. Glad it’s helping you! 🙂 Erin
Thank you for this recipe. The taste is amazing! One of the things I truly miss eating is bread!! A lot of store bought gluten free breads contain corn starch or potato starch which I can’t eat. This flatbread helps when I’m craving a sandwich.
Thanks for writing Melissa..yes, this bread has saved me from eating regular bread so many times, and I love how fast it is to make. Erin
Hi Erin, this recipe looks fabulous!
I’m just wondering, could you please tell me what sized tray you spread the mixture onto (with the parchment paper) and how thinly do I need to spread it?
Thanks in advance ☺
Do you really need the sugar substitute!
hi Darlene – if you try it with out let me know how it turns out 🙂
We don’t use xylitol because we have 3 dogs and don’t want to rush them getting poisoned. Any suggestions for healthy substitutes?
HI Dawn, You are correct – xylitol is very dangerous for dogs. You could always use monk fruit 🙂
