PBJ breakfast flatbread

Can you believe this motley, but loveable, crew?
 
I want to sue Punxsutawney Phil. Where's the early spring he forecasted? I am so sick of cold weather!

I am giving my full support to an Ohio prosecutor who is seeking the death penalty for Phil because of his flawed forecast. Okay, maybe he shouldn't get the death penalty but he should at least have to live on bread and water for a few days. What do you think? Here's the link to the story: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2013/03/21/ohio-prosecutor-seeks-death-penalty-for-punxsutawney-phil-after-bad-forecast/


"PBJ" breakfast flatbread

I needed a quick pick-me-up from the endless winter weather (even though the snow hounds love it). I wanted to reach for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich but that wouldn't work on the candida diet. Jelly and peanut butter are both taboo.

No PBJ but still delicious!
Instead, I came up with an ACD-Phase 1 version that works for me.

Here's what you need for one large flatbread:
(Note: You also can make two smaller flatbreads out of this recipe.)

2 T. ground sunflower seeds
1/4 cup spaghetti squash puree
1 T. coconut flour
1 T. unsweetened sunbutter
1 T. ground flax
1 T. chia seed
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Here's what you do:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet.

Blend the spaghetti squash, sunbutter and coconut milk in your food processor. Then add the rest of the ingredients and continue blending. The dough will be thick.

Spread the dough with your hands into a large circle on the baking sheet. Pop into your preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes until the flatbread is dry and crispy.



While the flatbread is baking, whip up your toppings.

Here's what you need or improvise if you like:

1/4 cup frozen blackberries, thawed
1/4 cup frozen blueberries, thawed
1 T. unsweetened sunbutter, thinned with some coconut milk to a frosting-like consistency
1/4 cup pre-baked squash pieces (I used delicata squash)
1 T. Artisana coconut butter for drizzle

To assemble, spread the sunbutter topping on the flatbread. Then, add fruit and squash pieces. Finally, drizzle on the softened coconut butter. Heat slightly in the microwave, if desired.


What do you think about Punxsutawney Phil's bad forecasting?

I was wondering if the flatbread had more sweet undertones or if it was more savory? Your recipe for the single serving sunbutter cookies, and squash brownies are amazing!
