Smokey’s Light and Fluffy Low-Carb Pita Bread
Bread is definitely a no-no on any low-carb diet and is also missed dearly. We could devour a loaf of bread or a pack of bagels in one setting. However, our waistline wouldn’t appreciate it.
We have a fabulous recipe, that mimics pancakes, but offers a Mediterranean flavor. Since we’re making a Greek Salad for lunch today, we decided to create our version of Pita Bread to accompany our meal.
Preparation time is only 5 minutes and cooking time an additional 10 minutes.
We only used 6 ingredients:
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 Cup of Water
- 3/4 Cup of Almond Flour
- 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1/8 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/8 tsp. Salt
We’ll begin by cracking our egg into our mixing bowl, adding water, oil, and whisking until fully blended.
Next, we’ll add our Almond Flour, Baking Soda, Salt, and will once again whisk until fully blended.
We will now prepare our skillet with cooking spray and place on medium heat.
Once our pan begins slightly smoking, we’ll pour about 1/3 of our batter into the skillet.
As the bubbles begin to slow and the bottom of the Pita Bread starts to slightly smoke, now is the perfect time to flip.
We’ll allow the Pita Bread to rise slightly and then after about 30 seconds, our bread should be finished cooking.
Since our Pita Bread is fried in oil, we’ll line a small plate with a couple of sheets of paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
We will then place our Pita Bread on the towels.
We’ll continue making our Pita Bread Pancakes until we’ve used all of our batter.
We were able to make 2 1/2 pancakes.
We’ll then, remove the paper towels and cut the pancakes into fourths.
We’ll then rearrange our Pita Bread into typical Pita Bread slices, which will accompany our Greek Salad.
Our Pita Bread is very light and fluffy and exudes Mediterranean flavor. We thoroughly enjoy it’s graininess and its authentic taste.
Bread doesn’t have to be a no-no anymore!
From our kitchen to yours…….Enjoy!!!!
