Lettuce wraps are awesome, and you’ll never see me turning down big-ass salads, but sometimes the convenience of a sandwich just can’t be beat.
Whether my husband needs to eat one-handed while he works on a report, I want to send something a bit more substantial with my kids to school, or I just don’t feel like “grazing” on various separate items for lunch (my usual), sandwiches come in handy.
These sandwich rounds are my easiest solution. They’re sturdy, hearty, they taste great, and it’s easy to make a large batch of them at once, and use throughout the week. They also freeze well, so if you don’t have 4 people using them quickly like we do, you can make a big batch that will last you a long time.
They’re based on the same recipe as my Fluffy Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Pancakes, with a couple of tweaks and a different cooking technique.
- 6 eggs
- 6 Tbsp almond milk
- 1 Tbsp honey optional
- Â½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 6 Tbsp coconut flour
- Â¼ cup melted virgin coconut oil use expeller-pressed if you don't want the coconut flavor
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Mix all of the ingredients together. Iâ€™ve found that adding the oil after everything else is combined works best to get the right texture. We used to use our stand mixer for this, but now we use our Vitamix 750 and the results are better than ever. I HIGHLY recommend using a high speed blender if you have one.
- Let the batter stand about 5 minutes so the coconut flour can absorb everything the way it likes to.
- Mix your batter one more time.
- Pour batter into circles on the silicone mats. I do 6 rounds per baking sheet. They will spread a bit, so give them a little bit of space between them.
- Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden. Remove the pans and flip the rounds over to the other side.
- Bake for another 2-3 minutes.
- Remove and place on cooling racks to cool about 20 minutes or more before storing or using.
Just the other day, we made classic grilled cheese sandwiches and dipped them into tomato soup. The sandwiches grilled perfectly, and didn’t fall apart in our soup.
I really hope you’ll give these a try, and let me know how they work for you! What kind of sandwich are you most excited about having soon?
