Recipe Wednesday

Welcome to the first Recipe Wednesday. Every Wednesday I will try to post a new gluten free and usually dairy free recipe. I want to share some of the yummy things we came up with during last months experiment. This week's recipe is Pita Pockets. They are soft, slightly chewy and horribly addictive.
To start you will need:
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup GF Flour ( I use Bob's Red Mill all purpose flour)

Preheat oven to 375. Grease 2 pie pans and put parchment paper circles inside on the bottom (this will help a lot later). Mix all ingredients together till the texture of runny pancake batter. Pour evenly into 2 pie pans and bake for 20 minutes. When they are done cut each pita in half and using a thin knife cut the slit for the pocket while the pita is still warm. This recipe makes 4 pita pockets. Store in an air tight container in the fridge and warm slightly or bring to room temperature prior to stuffing and serving. They tend to crack a little if you stuff them while they are still cold.

Adding all the ingredients together and dividing by 4 the nutritional content for 1 pita pocket is:
