Flatbread instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC)
  • Stir together flax seed, egg, and a small pinch of finely ground sea salt in a bowl until well combined. 
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Pour batter into two circles on the parchment lined sheet pan. Using a spatula or the back of a large spoon, spread the batter out evenly into two 'buns.' The batter should be about 1/4" thick. 
  • Place sheet pan in the oven on the lowest rack and bake for 10-13 minutes, or until the edges are starting to crisp, and flatbread is firm but still flexible. Remove from oven. After a few minutes, peel the flatbread bunds from the parchment paper. 

Sandwich instructions:

  • Generously coat the inside of each bun with mayonnaise. Layer the bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes on the bottom bun and season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Place the top bun over and lightly press down with your hand to get all the ingredients to meld together. 
  • Cut your BLT sandwich in half or just hold together with your hands!
