  • Add the dry ingredients (almond flour, tapioca starch, baking powder and salt) to a medium mixing bowl and stir with a fork until everything is well-combined.
  • Add the oil and stir again until it's somewhat evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture.
  • Heat the water on the stovetop until it is steaming, then add it to the mixing bowl. 
  • Stir the dough together until all of the flour mixture is wet, then let the dough rest for 10 minutes. 
  • Using your hands, knead the dough for about 10 seconds and then form it into a ball. It should be very moist but not so sticky that it coats your hands. If it does stick a lot to your hands, add a little more almond flour.
  • Divide the ball into 6 pieces. Place the first piece onto a sheet of parchment paper and then cover it with another sheet of parchment paper. 
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into 5-6 inch circles.  I have a lid that is 5.5 inches wide that I use as a "cookie cutter" to make the edges perfectly round, but they're pretty with rustic edges, too.
    Tip: Pull a little of the parchment paper over the edge of your counter and use your body to hold in place while you roll.
  • Pour about 1/4 teaspoon of oil in a well seasoned cast iron skillet (which is what I use as a non-stick pan) and roll the pan around until it is evenly distributed, then use a paper towel to wipe the pan clean. All that's needed is a very thin layer of oil.
  • Warm the pan over medium/high heat. When it's hot, reduce the heat to medium and place a piece of dough in the center. Allow it to cook for about a minute before using a spatula to flip it over. Let it cook for another minute or so. It should puff up slightly as it cooks and the edges will turn golden brown. 
  • When the first piece of flatbread is ready, transfer it to a plate and cover it with a towel. Repeat the process until all the flatbreads are ready.
  • Store any leftovers in and airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
