Savory Whole Wheat Flat BreadPosted: September 24, 2012
Ah flat bread. It has so much to offer! You can use it as a pizza crust, as a burger bun, or it can even be ripped and dipped into your favourite sauces. Its so versatile and pretty easy to make, which also makes me happy! (Bread recipes intimidate me!)
I started off which a bunch of herbs, spices, oats, flax and flour.
Here’s the ball of dough before it has risen.
I took this beauty outside with me on Friday afternoon and did homework in the sun for an hour, where it doubled in size!
I took a chunk and rolled it out.
Next, I popped it into a hot castiron pan.
Then I flipped it over to a nice brown crust.
This recipe made about 8 medium sized flat breads.

1.5 cup warm water, about 95 degrees F
2 package (about 2 1/2 teaspoons) dry instant yeast
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3.5 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons uncooked old fashioned oats
1 tablespoon flax seed
1 tsp each of your favourite herbs (I used rosemary and Italian seasoning)
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, yeast, oats, flax, herbs, sugar, salt and pepper. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the hot water. Bring mixture together with a fork, until all of the flour bits are moistened, and the dough is shaggy. Dump out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead a few times to bring together.
Coat the medium bowl with a teaspoon of olive oil and place dough ball in bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Dough will double in size.
When dough has rested and risen, dump out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough in half, then divide each half into six equal pieces.
Heat a non stick pan (I used my cast iron) over medium heat.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each dough piece until thin. Place dough round in the ungreased, hot pan. Cook on one side for 1 to 2 minutes, until browned on the bottom and slightly puffed. Flip and cook for another 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from pan and serve warm. Enjoy!
