Grainless Kale Flat Bread
Yield 8-12 servings
- 2 cups packed kale
- ½ large onion
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1 tsp pink salt
- 2 pasture-raised eggs
- 2 tbsps grass-fed butter/ghee or coconut oil
- ½ tsp lemon juice
- Preheat the oven to 300°F. Grease a baking sheet or baking stone with coconut oil cooking spray.
- Combine all of the ingredients in a high-powered blender or food processor and blend, pausing periodically to scrape down the sides of the container, until a smooth, dough like consistency has formed and all the chunks have been eliminated. This could take several minutes.
- Using a spatula to ensure evenness, spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; it should be as thin and even as you can get it.
- Bake for 50 to 65 minutes, depending on thickness. To check for doneness, gently insert a fork or toothpick into the flatbread; if it comes out clean, it is ready. Remove from the oven.
- Slice and serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Couple of notes about this recipe:
- This mixture can be bread like or cracker like depending on how long you cook it/how thin you spread the mixture.
- If you like more of a soft chewy texture, cook for a shorter amount of time and spread the dough a bit thicker. If you want more of a cracker, spread it thin and cook it longer, until fully crunchy. Keep checking it towards the end to get the crunchiness you like.
- You could also experiment with cooking at a higher temperature for a shorter amount of time, just keep checking after 15 min to make sure it does not burn.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a very tasty and nutrient dense cracker that is grain-free and low carb. This is easy on the digestive system and anti-inflammatory for the body. Kale is an incredible superfood with a massive amount of high-powered nutrients. The walnuts and sunflower seeds are rich in small chain omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins and healthy fiber.
This is a great recipe to make on the weekend and have out during the week for the kids or pack it in your lunch and/or your children’s lunch.
