I want to tell you about these flatbreads that we’ve been loving very much lately. They’re quick, gluten-free, and a bit addictive.

I’ve been making them in the form of tiles, cutting a rolled out sheet of dough into squares and adorning them with summer veggies, herbs, spices, and olives.

Can we stop and talk about summer tomatoes for a minute? We cannot get enough of them. There is just nothing better than a veggie in season, at its very best.
My oohs and ahhs aside – I’ve been packing these flatbreads into Paloma’s lunchbox. Officially four years old as of Monday, she is becoming a pickier eater, but not with the tiles. She can eat an impressive amount of them, actually.

August in Florida is tough, and I’ve been dreaming about fall a whole lot. Trying to take summer for what it is, though, and things like these tomatoes are helping out a lot with enjoying the moment.

Tile Flatbreads
2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans – ground in a food processor into tiny pieces
1/3 cup chia or flax seeds
pinch of salt
1 cup boiling purified water
2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 375F.
Combine the oats, nuts, chia, and salt in a bowl. Pour the boiling water over it. Mix with a wooden spoon, and let sit for about five minutes. Add the olive oil and knead the dough with your hands to combine. Roll onto parchment paper to make a cracker about 1/4 inch in thickness. Score into shapes of choice.
You can add the topping in two different ways. Lightly press veggie slices, herbs, and spices of choice into the dough and bake at 375F for 30 minutes or more if needed until golden in colour. Watch it periodically and cover with foil or parchment paper if veggies start to burn. Alternatively, add toppings at the last ten minutes of baking like to a pizza.

    Your blog is my favourite food website ever. I’m currently trying to help others see how food can help their health and cure certain ailments (worked for me) and your site is very inspiring. Hope you don’t mind me sharing your posts. I want everyone to see your wonderful blog :-).

    I love your photographic as well as culinary skills. You are truly a goddess is both. Love the lady in green dress, big hat and purple bag at the market.

    I have observed that those who excel in their game have super attention to detail in common – evidenced with the criss cross marks in the cucumber next to the pile of flat breads.

    Ah such a pleasure to see your work and leaves me feeling so full of positivity. Thank you.

    Ahhh, yes! The tomatoes! Beautiful flatbreads, love them and the list of ingredients (which is very much alike my recipe for bread similar to yours).

    So incredible that Paloma is already four! Cannot believe it! She was just a toddler!

    Ah, amazing post (as always!) Thank you!

    This flatbreads look so tempting and easy to make. I’ll try them tonight for sure.

  • Marina says:

    Brilliant recipe, I’ve been looking for something like that for a while. I just wander: do they sell gluten free oats? Or it’s some other grain that is gluten free but they call it “oats”? Thanks! :)

    Hands down, the most delectable sounding and looking flat breads ever. Gorgeous photos!

    They more look like crackers to me but look as yummy! Talk about tomatoes… They are part of our meals at least once a day.

  • how gorgeous are those flatbreads! wow yum!

  • 65I made these a few minutes ago. They make a great cracker!! I added 1 tsp each of onion and garlic powder and 2 TBSP of toasted sesame seeds. YUMMY!

    I’ve been looking for a good multi-grain cracker and this one sure fits the bill. Thank you!!! I love it!

  • What a great flat bread recipe! Will definitely be trying this soon.

    By the way, what is the difference between gluten free and regular rolled oats? I believe they they are the same, right?
