Paleo pita bread with cassava flour, gluten-free pita bread, grain-free pita bread

My daughters had their own share of digestive problems, when we went on a mission to heal their gut, we had to go gluten-free and grain-free for the most part, pita bread is a staple in Egyptian homes and my girls missed it so much! On a mission to make a paleo grain-free version, I started experimenting with cassava flour, its made from the Yuca root vegetable, a starchy vegetable that makes perfect flour for baking bread and other baked goods.

it tastes very similar to regular white flour and it worked perfectly for my daughter’s gut, its also AIP (auto-immune) friendly, allergy-friendly, the recipe has no nuts or dairy either! it’s absolutely perfect for anyone with multiple foods sensitivities that still want to enjoy a hot pita out of the oven
