Grain free 'bread' /pancakes

I'm not only an infrequent cook but I'm also an infrequent blogger! :-)
Anyway, here I am ready to roll again.

My health care giver suggested that grains are not the best for me and handed me a recipe for grain-free bread. For the life of me I cannot get that recipe to work for me. His bread is almost like wheat bread but mine turns out like a house brick.
I recently saw an ad for a charity in which an African woman just poured a great amount of batter into a pan over an open fire, then closed the lid on it and hey presto she had a massive flat bread in no time.
So...I got to thinking about how I could simplify my 'bread issues' and so I made up my own recipe with grain free flours.
This recipe doesn't quite have the texture of flat bread and are more like burritos/pancakes, but if you make it on a hot plate in the Weber Q range, it dries out more and the texture is more like pitta bread. You could also try putting a lid on your frypan, but the temperature will need to be very high, which is not always possible on a regular electric stove top. Gas cook top could be better.

I hope you'll try these as the flavour and texture are very good.
