I’ve been gluten free for several years now, and I’ve experimented with some paleo recipes thrown into the mix. I was so happy when I found this one. I thought it was too good to be true, but I tried it anyways. And the results were amazing.
I am a huge fan of Indian food and I think naan is incredibly delicious, but unfortunately, very full of gluten. I’m always sad not to partake at Indian restaurants, but the rest of the food is always worth it. However, since finding this recipe, I don’t miss naan anymore.
I got the recipe from My Heart Beets. It is so fast, easy, and that Lars and I have been using it for all kinds of different things. I thought it would be fun to do a post on different uses for this versatile recipe. When we serve this naan we love making people guess what the 3 ingredients are in the recipe. So far no one has gotten them.
Take a guess before you read the recipe. Three ingredients to make gluten free naan. Click through the link to see if you were right. If you get all three right, send me an email, I’ll give you a virtual pat on the back.
So, first things first, head on over to My Heart Beets for the recipe.
Just a few notes on the recipe:
- If you use salt, try to use celtic sea salt or himalayan sea salt if you have it
- When you cook the naan, I recommend using coconut oil if you plan to do a sweet recipe and olive oil for a savory recipe.
So we have learned over the past few months that there are a ton of different uses for this recipe.
Here are 10 awesome uses for Paleo Naan:
1. The obvious- use as naan as a bread side dish (especially with curry!)
2. Make thin and use as crepes- fill with fruit
3. Use as sandwich bread (similar to a pita)
4. Use as pizza crust (perhaps with amazing pumpkin sauce instead of tomato- it’s amazing)
5. Cut into quarters and dip into nutella (or hummus or any other dip)
6. Cook batter half way through and instead of flipping, fill with fruit and fold up, glaze with cinnamon, bake the rest of the way (this was so amazing when we made it- I’m going to have to do a separate post just for this paleo pastry. So keep your eyes open for it!)
7. Make naan garlic bread
8. Naan toast with eggs
9. Make thick in a small pan and use as a burger bun
10. Naan french toast
I haven’t tried all 10 of these, but all that I have tried have all been amazing. Seriously, this recipe is too easy it seems too good to be true. But it IS TRUE.
It is a great recipe to make if you need bread in a pinch because all you need are three ingredients that have very long shelf lives! Seriously, I am making myself drool just looking at these pictures. I have to go make more.
Can you think of any other uses for this easy recipe? Let me know in the comments!

Hi! oh my gosh I absolutely love this post!!
Would you mind sending people over to my website for my recipe rather than printing it in full? http://myheartbeets.com/paleo-naan-indian-bread/
I’m actually working on a naan round up and would love to include this if that’s okay with you?
That would be so great! I took the full recipe down and linked instead.
Wow! I’ll have to give this a go! It does sound too good to be true – yes?! But, I’m going to take your word for it and try it both savory and sweet! Thanks!

Yum! That pastry looks delicious! Thanks so much for linking up with us at The Makers.
I make Naan every now and then and you have some great ideas for changing up the way we use it. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday linky party.
Yum!!! I’m stopping in from the East Plum Link party.
I did not guess the ingredients correctly, but I still think I might have to make this soon. :)
Looking forward to trying these. We are 100% GF in our home so these will make a great addition. Thanks for linking up at Tips and Tricks. Pinning!
I made these for brunch today! Scrumptious! Because I can’t have tapioca, I substitute it with arrowroot. I made 8 small crepes and filled them. They were fantastic. Thank you and Ashley for the recipes!
Great to know that arrowroot powder works! Thank you!
I’d really like to try these but don’t have tapioca or arrowroot flour on hand. Would coconut flour possibly work?
I have no idea! I’ve only ever followed the recipe completely. You could definitely try.
