Then, add in the almond flour and egg and stir until it comes to a dough-like consistency.
Place the dough on the parchment paper and flatten out until it’s spread out into an oval-shape. Then add your garlic, basil and anything else you’d prefer for a topping. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the flatbread for up to 20 minutes (or until the edges begin to crisp).
