IMG_9411.jpg

Pumpkin doesn’t have to be reserved for the fall. It adds a micro nutrients and fiber to recipes year round.

This slightly sweet Pumpkin Flatbread that pairs with breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. Pumpkin provides great moisture to that is usually lacking in gluten and grain free breads. The key to bready instead of soggy flat bread is to drain your pumpkin puree before adding it to the recipe.

Some pairing ideas . . . . topped with almond butter at breakfast, as a side to a summer spinach salad, or with a white chicken chili.

*Pumpkin contains a lot of water and can cause a recipe to be too soggy. To prevent this, drain the liquid from the pumpkin and blot (or squeeze out liquid) with paper towels.

** You can add more, less, or omit the sweetener in this recipe depending on your preferences and what you will be serving with this bread.
