This is a wonderful whole wheat cracker-like bread. It is great topped with butter or cheese. Better yet, it is simple, too!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Knead dough for 30 seconds on a well-floured surface.

  • 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.

  • 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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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!!! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
