Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oil, baking soda, and salt. Add enough buttermilk to make a stiff dough.
  2. Knead dough for 30 seconds on a well-floured surface.
  3. Cover dough to prevent drying. Roll 1/4 cup handfuls of dough into balls and pat into a flat circle. Using a rolling pin, flatten dough into 10 inch circles. Place onto ungreased cookie sheet. Score pieces into pie shapes by running a knife along but not through dough. Repeat process with remaining dough.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack briefly before breaking along scored lines.

A good little, simple recipe. On my second batch, I left it in the oven for an extra tenminutes, and they became like little crackers that can keep for a long time!

I was looking for a flat bread that was like Gyro bread. Cooking this in the oven made more of a cracker, so I decided to try it on a hot cast iron griddle on the stove. They came out wonderfully!! Just what I was looking for. I would up the salt to 1 teaspoon, a little bland.

I like my flatbrod crispy and I found the baking time for this recipe a little short so after I baked them for 10 min. at 350 degrees, I put them all into a slow (150 degree) oven for an additional 45 minutes to make them crisp.

YUM!!! I follow this recipe exactly but cook like pancakes on a griddle just because it's faster. They are crunchy outside and a little more like gyro/pita bread on the inside. Perfect for my Hummus!!! Made several times over, perfect every time. THANKS FOR A GREAT RECIPE!!!

I love this recipe, it was so easy to make and delicious! I did change the salt to 1 tsp and I did pan cook/fry them. It took about 3-5 minutes to cook each side and my peices were about 6" in diameter. I am going to experiment with this recipe and add herbs and maybe even cheese next time. I love this healthy alternative to other carb snacks.

Made this last night and topped it with onions, tomatoes, basil, chesse and spices to make a flat bread pizza. My wife loved it and asked me to make it again, so we can try different toppings. I made the bread as is and it was perfect.

Wholesome and satisfying! I made a few changes to make it more festive: ground a pinch each of cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, poppy seeds. Sprinkled the ground spices on top of the bread while baking.

Thank You SO MUCH for this recipe!! I use this as a base. I add garlic powder, onion powder, a little more salt and shredded cheddar cheese. This recipe is so easy and really great! I cooked this along with meatloaf the other night, chopped some onion up and we made meatloaf pizza slices with it. Fantastic!! Thank you again!
