If you want a fluffy flatbread in a matter of minutes with the most delicious bounce and texture, with a boost of nutrition, this is the recipe for you.

Now, let’s talk about the star of the show – Mulino Caputo Fiorglut, a top-notch gluten-free flour hailing from Italy. This recipe is exclusively tailored for Fiorglut, so snag it from Amazon or scout for the best deals. You will not get the same texture using a different gluten-free flour. It will taste good but be more flat and less ‘bread-like”.
I have made a few adjustments to the original recipe to make it fluffier, more bouncy, and more nutritious. The secret is a few minutes spent soaking psyllium husk in the yoghurt before adding it to the dry mixture. The difference is night and day. When I made the original recipe, although tasty, it did not have the bounce and bread-like texture I was hoping for. Another change I made was to replace the baking powder with sodium bicarbonate. In our clinic, the cream of tartar in commercial baking powder can cause sensitivities in the kids we work with. I made the bread using baking powder and then again using sodium bicarbonate and did not see a discernable difference.
Moving on to the creamy element, whole milk Greek yoghurt takes the spotlight. Dairy-free kids are covered, too. Opt for coconut yoghurts from Coconut Collab or COCOS Organic for a great result.
Iron deficiency is rife in autism, and kids who are fussy eaters, always get sick, can’t sleep, or have poor cognition are often much better after their iron levels are normalised. However, adding iron supplements is not always the answer. Standard iron supplements can cause constipation, mess with the gut ecology and cause oxidative stress. The key is to have a supplement that balances iron with other nutrients, particularly copper. For this reason and a fabulous nutrition boost, I sprinkled four capsules (use two if you have a bloodhound!) of the Blood Vitality supplements by Ancestral Supplements**. It’s a powerful nutrition hack loaded with all the nutrients to help normalise iron levels. There is a minor but imperceptible flavour change and a mega boost of goodness. This is particularly important for those kids who are not good at eating red meat or iron-rich foods.
