Update on the Coconut Bread! - Coconut Flatbread

This is really exciting for me because, like I said, it's hard to be a mom (or dad) on the go without sandwiches.  So, this one's for all those parents and kids who are burnt out on the lunchmeat lettuce wraps, myself included.

I want everyone reading this to refer to my Crazy for Coconut Bread post/recipe from a few months ago.  Omit the banana.  Follow the recipe as listed otherwise. Bake on greased 9X13 baking sheet (jelly roll sheet preferred) until golden brown.  This should take less time than the loaf, so just keep an eye on it.

Voila, I give you coconut flatbread.  Slice into whatever sized squares you want, and add your meats, veggies, etc.   The other option is to go old school on it with a Paleo PBJ.  Organic unsweetened Peanut Butter or Almond Butter and some mashed fruit or honey  Strawberries, Blueberries, blackberries, etc.  If you want the mashed fruit to be more jelly-like, just heat it gently in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes to help the moisture evaporate.  Be careful not to scorch it.  Let it cool, and spread it on the bread.   Store the bread in the refrigerator in sealed plastic bags.

If you really wanna wow the kids, you can use large cookie cutters in fun shapes like hearts, stars, footballs, etc. instead of cutting the bread into squares.  Then the shapes are exact.  By all means, if you as a parent want a heart-shaped sandwich, you're allowed, too:)

Enjoy and feel free to tag me with your fun shaped sandwiches on facebook!
