I am a huge fan of Indian food. I love how the dishes incorporate good-for-you spices like ginger and turmeric and that vegetarian mains are the norm.

But one thing my body can’t handle is all the gluten and carbs in some of these tasty dishes. Indian meals are usually served with rice and naan bread, and while I often pass on the rice, naan is so tasty it’s hard to say no. Luckily, with my gluten-free naan bread, I no longer have to — and neither will you.

Paleo naan bread ingredients - Dr. Axe What Is Naan Bread?

Naan bread is a traditional bread from Central and South Asia, though “naan” is originally a Persian word meaning “bread.” Today, naan generally refers to a thick flatbread and is synonymous with Indian cuisine, though it’s enjoyed in countries like Iran and Pakistan as well.

Unlike this gluten-free naan bread, the standard recipes usually all for a mix of wheat flour and bread flour and are baked in a tandoor clay oven, giving the bread its crisp exterior and chewy interior.

And while naan is nearly always at the table when eating an authentic meal, it’s also delicious to experiment with in other meals, like using as a pizza crust or as the bread for an open-faced sandwich. Get creative!

How to Make Gluten-Free Naan Bread

Luckily, making a homemade naan bread is really simple. This recipe uses a combination of almond flour and tapioca starch instead of gluten flours. Almond flour is high in protein and low-carb, making it one of my favorite gluten-free and Paleo-friendly baking substitutes.
