These gluten-free Rosemary Buckwheat Flatbreads make a great snack on their own or base for topping all kinds of fresh ingredients!
Buckwheat is my favourite gluten-free “grain”, although, it’s actually not a grain — it’s a seed! I’d definitely say it’s one of my favourite flours to use for baking though. I love it for making pancakes, blueberry muffins, and in these flatbreads I’ll be sharing today.
A little backstory: I don’t tolerate all foods very well (you can read more about my gut health story here). Dairy and also gluten-containing grains are a couple of the things my body does better without, and so I stick to what I know works best for my digestion. Buckwheat happens to be one of those things!
These flatbreads however came about after trying some paleo/keto flatbreads that Sean’s parents like to make (they’re SO good). But since coconut flour is high FODMAP, too many of them = an upset stomach for me. So I decided to make ’em with buckwheat instead!
These flatbreads can be cooked to a soft texture, or a little longer for a crispy texture.
The rosemary in this recipe is really the star though, and I gotta say, rosemary is up there as one of my favourite herbs. It always blows me away how nature produces exactly what we need for health and for flavour. It’s like how I was pondering recently the reason behind flowers being so visually appealing. Is there even a reason? Nature’s just cool.
I highly recommend you try these flatbreads with my Tomato & Olive Bruschetta!

I have been looking for a GF flat bread recipe, will certainly be trying these out. Thank you for all your content I am a new Fan!
Awesome to hear Naomi! Let me know how they turn out for you. xx
This was delicious! And so easy to make (with rosemary from our garden). Thanks so much. I cut back a little on the salt and pepper, but that’s something that can easily be adjusted for your taste. I baked it for 25 minutes, and it was great with tonight’s hearty soup.
So happy to hear this recipe turned out well for you Jill! The perfect side with a bowl of soup 🙂
