        1. it can be all of the above, I found that it needs the right thickness, the right heat to fluff up perfectly. some trial and error sometimes are required. Also, xanthan gum really helps if you have skipped that.

  1. thank you for the recipe, just learned about cassava flour and am having my first successful flat breads happen. so happy to try this out. I appreciate what you do best of luck

  2. Any sub for xantham gum.. it makes bread really slimy!! I tried other organic leavening agent, same slimy results !
    Love the idea but can't get it to taste right

      1. Hi Aayah, I am so glad I found you on youtube, also connected now on Instagram and following your recipes. I would also prefer to use psyllium husk in the place of xanthan gum, could you please let me know how much psyllium husk for this recipe?

        Warm regards,
        Christel Roux
