Grainless Kale Flat Bread
Yield 8-12 servings
- 2 cups of packed kale
- ½ large onion
- 1 cup of sunflower seeds
- 1 cup of walnuts
- 1 tsp pink salt
- 2 pasture-raised eggs
- 2 tbsps of grass-fed butter/ghee or coconut oil
- ½ tsp of lemon juice
Step #1: Measure out ingredients and combine in blender or food processor.
Step #2: Blend Until a smooth dough like consistency if formed and all chunks are blended. This could take several minutes, and it is good to stop and keep scraping the sides down to make sure it is all blended.
Step #3: Spread the mixture out onto a well-greased pan or stone with coconut oil or butter. Spread the mixture using a spatula to create an even spread on the pan. You want to get it pretty thin and as even as you can.
Step #4: Bake for 50-65 minutes at 300 depending on how thin/thick you made it.

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.
